Can a bet of the week from each English League make a winning accumulator?

Aug 28th, 2015 at 22:56 Other Football 4 comments

In the past I've rarely dabbled with accumulators as my approach to betting has been the softly softly approach to building up a bank. A quick look through the forum and you'll find a wide range of reasons amongst OLBG members as to why singles are the way forward but equally as many reasons as to why bettors should only consider accumulators.

At the start of the 2014 College Football season, a legitimate case could have been made for any one of Florida State, Oregon and Alabama going through the season undefeated.

A disappointing weekend last week with two losers from the blog. Once again, the MLS provided plenty of goals with 41 goals across the ten games including a 6-4 thriller in Washington and a five goal affair in last week's first live match which saw the first half of the bet come in but unfortunately, it was Montreal not New York City who came out on top. The second live …

After a goal fest in New York put paid to my correct score predictions for the New York City vs Orlando City game it looked a little pear shaped just four minutes into the DC United vs Philadelphia game as the Union took a very early two goal lead. But DC United had 86 minutes to fight back and that's just what they did as they eventually ran out 3-2 …
