It promises to be a huge year for football fans. The winter break is now coming to an end and the action has resumed in many of Europe’s top leagues. The Champions League and Europa League will soon be back in business, and title battles and relegation scraps will unfold in dramatic fashion over the coming months. Then all roads lead to Euro 2020, and pre-season action for the 2020-21 campaign will begin soon after, so there will be no respite this year. Punters will be busy compiling accumulators for weekend and midweek action throughout 2020, and 10Bet is offering a free £5 bet on anyone that places an acca bet of four or more legs. The only stipulation is that each leg must have odds of at least 2/5 (1.40).
Many bookmakers now provide a tool known as acca insurance. This sees you get your money back if just one leg lets you down. Punters have long faced the abject misery of making a bunch of correct selections and then seeing one big team bust their coupon by having an off day. Acca insurance goes some way towards mitigating that pain by giving you a free bet so that you can have another crack at success. Betfred gives you acca insurance on a bet with five or more legs, provided each leg has odds of at least 1/3 (1.33). Other bookies give you an acca boost. For example, 10Bet will give you up to 50% more on your payout, depending on how many selections you make. Ladbrokes also promotes an acca boost, using former athlete Kriss Akabusi to champion it on TV ads.
William Hill offers enhanced odds on an ongoing basis in order to keep its legions of loyal customers happy. For example, you can find 15/2 on both Callum Wilson and Troy Deeney to score when Bournemouth host Watford at the Vitality Stadium on Sunday. Deeney has been banging in the goals since his return from injury, which has sparked a renaissance for the Hornets. Wilson is on a long goal drought, but he is a talented striker and it has to come to an end sooner or later. The odds should be 9/2, but it has boosted them to 15/2. It is also offering 3/1 on Cardiff to score in both halves when they face fierce rivals Swansea in the big Championship game. The odds have been boosted from 5/2.
Aston Villa host Man City in the Premier League on Sunday afternoon and Pep Guardiola’s men are expected to surge to victory. They beat Aston Villa 3-0 earlier this season and they boast an abundance of firepower, while Villa have been leaky at the back and they recently lost key players Tom Heaton and Wesley to injury. Betway will give you a free £5 bet if you wager £5 on any #BetYourWay market on this game, as long as you rack up odds of at least 5/1. You can also find boosted odds of 7/2 on wide men Raheem Sterling and Riyad Mahrez both scoring in the game. If you do not have an account with Betway, it will give you £30 in free bets if you deposit £10 into a new account.
