Parlay Betting Systems

Accumulator bets are very exciting to take, some pro bettors abuse them like hell while others advice against them. It is not strange to find pro sport tipsters on Twitter doing Weekly Challenges with these.

The thing is a smart bettor develops an accumulator betting system instead of just placing all their stake on one huge selections of bets. Instead they do a group of doubles, accumulators and single bets, so in order that one group of bets fails the others might just win.

With the following accumulator systems a bettor wins some cash only by winning with two groups of bets.

WARNING: Sportsbooks advice bettors in their TOS to avoid using systems, and if suspect of using one your account might be frozen. Those bastards! But you can still use them, simply take one group of bets and stake on them on one sportsbook and on several other accounts stake the other group of bets. This way you are not infringing any single TOS.

*TIP: If you are new to football betting it is better to begin with the most simple and used bet types like the single or money line bet, then move on to betting strategies and accumulators.

Trixie Bet

A trixie bet consists of 4 bets on 3 different selections in 3 different events. In other words it’s a three selection bet consisting of 4 bets – 3 doubles and 1 treble.

What makes Trixie bets popular among most of the sports bettors is the fact that you’ll get a return even if one of your bet fails to come true.

With Trixie bets the returns will much larger than winning three individual doubles bets and a triple bets. Hence bettors go for these kinda bets in matches were you know their is a sure winner.

Example,

You are making a 20₤ bet ( 80₤ total stake) on Hull City, QPR and Leicester City to win their respective games on the day at the odds of 1.5 each.

If only Hull and QPR manage to win their games and Leicester loses you’ll still get a return of 180₤ in return.

Sweet isn´t it!

Patent Bet

Add three single bets to a trixie bet and you get a Patent bet. In other words a Patent bet is a wager on three different selections consisting of 7 different bets which include 3 singles, 3 double and 1 treble.

The total stake will be seven times the money you put forward. You only need one winning selection to get a return in this type of bet and is one of the reasons which makes it so popular among the bettors.

Here is how the patent is split

Up and Down Betting

An Up and Down bet is a two part bet where you can only proceed to the second part of the bet if there is a sufficient return from part 1

It also called as “any-to-come” or “if-cash” bet.

A pro tipster that loves this type of betting is InPlay Ganador, check out his Bio and how you can follow top winning bets follwing accumulator betting systems like  this one.

It can be better understood with the help of the following illustration,

Bet – A

Part 1 – Bet on your 1st selection

Part 2 – Bet on your 2nd selection only if sufficient winning is left behind from Part 1

Bet – B

Part 1 – Bet on your 2nd selection

Part 2 – Bet on your 1st selections only if sufficient winning is left behind from Part 1.

*Up-and-Down bets are further classified into two depending upon the amount you bet in Part 2.

  • Single Stakes About (SSA)

Here two bets are chosen and bets are placed on both. If you’re first selections wins then a bet equivalent to the original bet is placed on the second bet. If both you’re original selections win then a second bet of the same stake is placed on both the selections.

So if both you’re selections win you get a good return, if only one of you’re selections win the return will be lower and if both you’re selections go wrong then you get?????? What? You get nothing.. gheez!!!

  • Double Stakes About (DSA)

This is similar to SSA bets with the only difference being that should you win one selection the double of what you waged there will be used as stake in the second selection. In case the return from the first selection is low then whole of the return is used in the second part of the bet.

Round Robin Bet

Round Robin betting system

In a Round Robin instead of placing you bets on each individual you can group all the matches together and place a single bet. The result will be better odds and better returns. Minimum of three lines and a maximum of 8 lines.

Suppose you have three teams which you know are winners for sure: –

Manchester City – 1.4

Liverpool – 1.6

Spurs – 1.9

Here instead of placing a single three team parlay you can split it into three different two-team parlay’s.

Parlay 1

Manchester City – 1.4

Liverpool – 1.6

Bet 10₤ at the odds of 2.3 and get 23₤ in return

Parlay 2

Liverpool – 1.6

Spurs – 1.9

Bet 10₤ at the odds of 2.3 and get 23₤ in return

Parlay 3

Spurs – 1.9

Manchester City – 1.4

Bet 10₤ at the odds of 2.3 and get 23₤ in return

If you win all three of your selections then you will get 69₤ in return for a bet of 30₤.

If you get at least one of your parlay’s correctly you’ll a get return. You can add more lines which will increase increase the number of parlay’s involved. Now some sportsbooks won´t allow to select the same team more than once, they will even prevent you from placing completely different bet selections that they feel follow a system to gurantee profits. That is why this system is better done with three diffrent sportsbooks, one parlay bet on each one and you are OK no matter what.

Flag Bets

A Flag bet is a combination of a Yankee bet and a Up and Down Single Stakes About Pairs. Flag bets are further classified into:

Super Flag – which is a combination of a Super Yankee Bet and a Up and Down Single Stakes About Pairs.

Super Flag 5 46 Super Yankee + 10 Up and Down SSA Pairs
Heinz Flag 6 87 Heinz + 15 Up and Down SSA Pairs
Super Heinz Flag 7 162 Super Heinz + 21 Up and Down SSA Pairs
Goliath Flag 8 303 Goliath + 28 Up and Down SSA Pairs

Any one winning selection will guarantee a return.

Roundabout Bet Type

Roundabout is one of the most popular choices of bets among many a sports bettors. It helps the bettor gain more from their single bets when they have three wagers in mind.

Suppose you have three selections you think are sure bets to win. It has three 3 single bets and 3 Up and Down pairs.

  • Manchester City vs Tottenham
  • Liverpool vs Chelsea
  • Manchester United vs Arsenal

Bet 1: – Single bet on Manchester City and Any-to-come bet on Liverpool and Manchester United

Bet 2: – Single bet on Liverpool and Any-to-Come bet on Manchester City and Manchester United

Bet 3: – Single bet on Manchester United and Any-to-Come bet on Manchester City and Liverpool
