Football Accumulators on the app

No 2 – bet365 – Our views on the app

The bet365 app has a number of strong points making it a close second in the best football betting apps. Where it’s at it’s strongest is the sheer number of games you can bet on and a couple of corking offers!

Our opinions on the bet365 app.

When testing the bet365 app we found it to be a good quality stable app for football betting. We found no issues with load times even at 3 pm on a Saturday when running either 4G or a WIFI connection.

The choice of betting markets we encountered was vast with all the major markets showing on all the major games. Live streaming was a key benefit we saw and it’s always worth checking the app out to see what games they are showing that day. When we were testing we watched streamed a game from the Bundesliga in the UK – There are restrictions on steaming based on where you live, again check the app or the website to see what is available in your country.

No 3 – Betfair Exchange app – Best for Odds

If you’re not familiar with the exchange then this app may seem strange to you at first. I’d describe the Betfair Exchange app as the football betting app for the experienced punter.

You can both back and lay bets allowing you to become, in theory, the bookmaker. Use your footballing knowledge to gain your advantage. Register below to see the latest bonus offer for new customers.

Click here to join betfair
If you want to learn more about using Betfair then check out the Betfair youtube channel for a host of helpful videos and guides. You can learn everything for football betting including, backing and laying bets, laying off bets and some football betting strategies. He’s a few of the well-known strategies for you to check out, it’s worth starting small or even on paper before you start trading in larger sums – it takes some experience to get used to the exchange.

  •  Lay The Draw – A hugely popular football trade, you lay the draw which means a return on the match as long as it does not finish in a draw. You can use your own exit strategies to get out in a profit or loss depending on the score in the game.
  • Early Goal Trade – This is a trade where you get on the under market, usually 2.5, where there is an early goal in the game and then get out quickly when the market settles down.
  • Correct Score dutching – This involves covering multiple scores for a set and level outcome. For example, if you think United will win in a low scoring game you can cover 1-0 & 2-0 as a correct score with calculated stakes for the same return. Again you have options to trade out on the correct bet.
  • Bots – Whilst not specifically a strategy on Betfair you can use automated bots to place bets for you. You set up a strategy for target markets and odds and allow the bot to back, lay and cash out on your behalf – This is only for really serious traders who know what they are doing!


What is the best football betting app?

From our reviews, we have rated the Betvictor app as the best app for football betting. It is a quality well-designed app that has a wide range of markets and some great football offer. Its football bet builder has a good choice of options and it is all priced up instantly.

What is the best app for Accumulators?

From our experience, the top app for Accas is either the BetVictor app due to the range of coupons, over 15 markets, or the Sky Bet app with its boosted odds accumulators. All apps offer football coupons, we just find these two the easiest to use.
