Betfair Bet Builder: Multiple Markets On The Same Match

18+ | commercial content | begambleaware.org

Saturdays are made for accumulators. The thrill of a last-minute winner, the heartbreak of your last selection not coming through. It’s what makes football betting a real thrill.

But while most weekends are spent betting on multiple fixtures, did you know you can also back an acca using multiple markets in the same bet?

Betfair Bet Builder is an emerging market that is a brilliant twist on the traditional accumulator.

What Is Betfair’s Bet Builder?

When it was first launched it was known as Betfair same game multi and this used to be listed on the tab. Over time the term bet builder has become more prominent in the industry causing Betfair to change the name to match.

Like all bet builders, this allows you to place a multiple bet on the same market for a specific match. You can choose from who will win the match down to how many corners one team will have in half of the match. This means you can pick your selections based on the pre-match stats or from your own premonition.

How To Play

Playing with Betfair is easy to understand as ultimately you play in the same way you’d back an accumulator.

All you have to do is sign up to a Betfair account, download the app and then start placing bets from multiple markets and the same selection.

Simply add the markets you want to play to your bet slip and place your stake in the Same Game Multi section.

In order to win all the markets must-win, just like an accumulator. There are cash-out options on selected bets and you can build as many legs in as you like as long as they are not related markets. You will not get longer odds for certain selections that are the same as other selections.

For Example:

Let’s say you wanted to bet on a fixture between Ajax and Dortmund with a Bet Builder.

There are a number of markets you’d be able to choose from (see below). In this instance you may want to place the following markets into one bet:

  • Haaland to have 20+ shots on target
  • Both teams to score
  • Over 5.5 match corners

In order to win the bet, each of the markets must come through for you to win. If one failed, for example, if Salah didn’t score first, your bet would fail.

Where to find the markets

Head on over to the Betfair app and tap into the game you are looking to bet on.  You’ll see this option in the menu –

It has been flagged as “new” for over 2 years now, we do not know when they are going to take that off!

You’ll then be taken to this screen where you can select the options you want –

There are more options than this and they are mostly open when you first visit the app. This is not the most intuitive bet builder and feels clunky when you are trying to build a big bet. We much prefer Bet Victors #PriceItUp bet builder – You can read why here.

Then head over to your bet slip and tap place bet once you are happy with the selections and the odds. Your confirmed bet will look like this –

The bet shows as a treble all on the same game. You can back it as the treble at the top of back each section individually as singles below if you wish. Now it’s time to kick back and watch the game unfold and hope all your legs land!
