I'm a bit stuck on accumulators. I want to take advantage of the sky boosts but accumulator betting isn't possible on the exchanges. Now I know you can lay them all indivdually but am I right in thinking you have to wait for each leg to settle first?

Depends how you want to do them. If you are with PA go use Acca Catcher, if you are with OM then use whatever their version is.

Those tools will build the accas for you, let you choose how you want to do them and then hand hold you through the entire thing

If you are talking about the Liverpool/Everton/Aston Villa boost they have for this weekend then both Smarkets and Matchbook have a lay market for this event (use the search feature on either and you should find it)

What would u recommend jon for QB to avoid looking obvious as a MB, I want to go for city cos it’s the least liability but then does that just scream matched betting ?
I have got into the habit of betting on the top Premiership teams City and United mainly - a few mug bets for them as well - and so far I am still getting the offers.

Just that there's so many bookies out there. Gubbed by maybe 10 now but there's still about 50 out there.

Plus a few of my "gubbed" ones still give me free bets haha.
Via email ? Or just when u check in ?

Iv been gubbed by Jennings and Betway ... I don’t why but I take it personally when they do ... I mean I’m only trying to make money out of them lol

The special pre-built accumulator markets are a bit hidden away. You can find them on smarkets here: https://smarkets.com/sport/football/accumulators,
on betfair here: https://www.betfair.com/exchange/plus/football/market/1.161393947
and Matchbook here: https://www.matchbook.com/events/soccer/specials

Make a note of the games included in the Sky Boost treble and see if there is a matching accumulator on an exchange to lay it. The boosts aren't always that good by the way but sometimes there is a couple of quid in it.

I’m trying to get into the habit of not mixing my bets, ie bet on city with my first bet then use my free bet on big odds on spurs say

I’m not even sure if that makes a difference or if it raises an even bigger red flag, in my mind though it seems to make more sense

Have gone for a neutral over 2.5 goals at 1.75 or something like that ... which leaves me open in play to go for match winner/result without conflicting my bets

Clear as mud lol

Yep via email.

Yep I've lost those both. Betway a big loss to be honest. Definitely need to look after Skybet, Coral, Bet365 etc.accounts

Advice I got was that Betway will gub you eventually anyway so take what you can get while you can...not sure how accurate

True that. The way they gub there can only be about 7 people left on the planet now who still have full accounts with them.

I've just lost Unibet - they didn't even bother to let me know - I just couldn't play on a game that was being promoted.

What did people do to get Coral and WH back - I gave up after a while of mug betting as I was just not getting offers again?

I don't get offers where you can do that. Mine is a free in play bet for the game that the original bet was placed on.

Thanks - I am going to have to start doing accumulators. Have I said that before :rolleyes:

With coral and wh it was just a case of time. It’s well know coral “review” accounts every 6 months so from out of nowhere you start seeing promotions appear on the promotions page within coral

Same with wh, I just waited and then got my account back fully just before Cheltenham 2018

I'll try again - did you do a lot of bets or just every week or so? I did quite a few before I gave up so don't want to keep losing on both for months for nothing.

That’s what im Saying
In my head, and I’m sure I’m wrong and stand to be corrected but
If my QB was on say city to win at low odds ... to qualify
Then my Inplay bet I put on spurs to win at high odds

Does that smack of MB ? To a bookmaker ?
Compounded by the fact I’m betting against my own bet ?

I’m sure I’m reading too much into it but in my head I think it’s best to avoid that sort of outcome

I’ll find out soon when I start getting gubbed lol

There is such a thing as a 'defensive' bet - you put your own money on the bet you want, but place an opposing bet with a free bet 'just in case'. Betting on the other team is going a bit far but betting on 0-0 or the draw is more 'normal' (whatever that is in our world)

I usually do the win or draw or lose to qualify and the inplay bet on overs or unders. Occasionally I do a mug bet on over/under too just to make it look like its my usual pattern. But you can overthink these things. Anyway I am the worlds worst person to advise on this as I've been gubbed by pretty much every bookmaker and his dog now.
