The football season is coming to an exciting conclusion. Chelsea lead The Premier League by 4 points but Spurs are looking strong and will be hoping to close the gap even further this weekend. At the other end of the table, Swansea will be hoping that Hull's recent resurgence comes to an end so as to give themselves a lifeline.
Regardless of the above though, many punters will be creating their own excitement by betting on the football via Sky Bet's Football Coupons. There are plenty to choose from including Full Time Result & BTTS, Both Teams To Score - Long List, Under/Over 2.5 Goals, Team To Score 1 Or More Goals, Bankers Coupon, Handicap Coupon, Half Time Scores and Win To Nil. You can break down your betting on a match basis going further and further in to find first goal scorers, corners and cards, pundits tips and specials.
When we've used football coupons in the past, there's always been a tendancy to over select on the bankers. This has never been a good strategy as inevitably the one team you expect to win lets you down. If it's not the most obvious team to win then it's usually your own side. Our top tip for any football coupon betting accumulator is never include your team!
Sky Bet obviously realise there are punters like ourselves and have created the Bankers Coupon. This is a selection of games where one side is an absolute nail on to win. For example, at time of writing, Seville are 1/7 to beat Tony Adams' Granada. The latter are 14/1 to pull off a shock win! Each selected match can be selected to find additional bets. As you add your bets, the option for doubles, triples, trixies, patents and additional accumulators will show up on the betting slip.
What Is A Trixie & Patent?
A Trixie by the way is four bets involving three selections on different events - i.e. 3 doubles plus 1 treble. A minimum of two events must be successful to get a win. A Patent is similar to a Trixie but it involves 7 bets - the additional four singles are added to the doubles and trebles. For a Patent, just one successful event guarantees a return.
Frustratingly Sky Bet doesn't have a simple football coupon along the lines of The Football Jackpot that you can find at Coral. This isn't so bad if you're happy putting together your own accumulators and navigating your way around the various matches listed.
One thing we did like at Sky Bet though were there ready made Football Accas. These can be find under "Enhanced Football Accumulators" and here you'll find the best odds on a selection of events. For example at time of writing you could get 33/1 for Marseille, Sevilla & Norwich all to win and Both Teams To Score (BTTS) in each game.
These accas are a nice way to put together bets quickly. However it should be noted that doubles, trebles etc are not available should you choose to bet on more than one of the listed options.
