Today signifies the start of a series of advanced guides that we will be sharing with you over the coming weeks and months that, we hope, will elevate your betting and provide you with advanced practical insights, knowledge, tips and strategies to advance your football betting.


Our first guide is an 8-part series focusing on Exotic/Multiple betting. In this series we will:


Take a look at what multiple bets are available to us bettors and provide examples of each type.


Outline the pros and cons attached to this style of betting.


Look at some of the returns you can expect by adopting a strategy that embraces the use of multiple bets.


Share several strategies for successful Exotic betting


What are multiples?


In the main, the exotic multiple bet (or accumulator betting) is aimed at the Joe Blogs, casual weekend punter, the type who wants a “bit of interest” or “makes the game more interesting with a bet on it” on a Saturday/Sunday afternoon or midweek football match.


The perception is that anyone who takes their betting seriously, or one who is focused with designs on actually turning a consistent profit from their betting, steers well clear of the multiples and focuses purely on single win betting markets.

We now have £25 going on to Team B at odds of 2/1, which after winning returns £75 (£50 x 2/1) plus your stake of £25.


So your return is £85 and actual profit £75 (when you deduct your original £10 stake from the total return).
