How To Place A Football Bet Builder On The Paddy Power App

To find the bet builder markets for an event, the first step is to navigate to it. We will look at placing a £5 bet builder bet on the Germany v Austria match in the Women’s Euros.

From the home page, we head to the football section.

we locate the match and tap on it to view all of the available markets.

If bet builder options are available for an event, they will always show in the markets tab. Tapping on it will open up the bet builder markets.

locating bet builder markets

All of the bet builder markets will now be listed. When it comes to football that list is quite extensive. It’s not the most user friendly of lists and there may be a fair bit of scrolling to locate the required markets. When we have located a selection we want to back, we tap on it to add it to the bet slip. The bet slip will now show at the bottom.

We carry on making selections and as we make more the number in the bet slip updates and the bet builder combined odds updates and flashes in the right side of the bet slip bar.

We are happy at the odds on five selections that we have made, so we can now tap on the bet slip arrow to open it up.

The live and upcoming American football fixtures will now show. We find the match that we want to bet on (Las Vegas Raiders @ Jackson Jaguars) and tap on it.

Finding a specific NFL game

The popular markets on the match will now be opened up. We check to make sure there is a bet builder tab available and then tap on it to get to the available bet builder markets.

The amount of markets aren’t quite as impressive as the football bet builder, but is relative to the amount of normal markets there are available. We make our first selection from the bet builder markets, causing a minimised bet slip to appear at the bottom.

We continue to add selections until we are happy with the overall bet in terms of odds offered versus perceived risk. We can then open up the bet slip to get ready to set a stake.

How To Place A Basketball Bet Builder On The Paddy Power App

At the time of writing, there were no basketball fixtures available with the bet builder feature attached to it. However, we are well outside of the NBA season, which is where the bet builder games appear.

Once the NBA games start to show on the Paddy Power app we will go ahead and provide a full demonstration on how to place a bet builder bet. However, expect the process to be very similar to those listed above for football and American football.

Bet Builder Insurance

Although Most bookmakers now have a bet builder system in place, none have been as innovative with it with their offers than Paddy Power.

Paddy Power have gone one extra step with their bet builder bets by making them eligible for accumulator insurance.

Paddy Power have offered insurance for a while whereby customers can get their stake back as a free bet (max £10) if only one leg of a fourfold or higher fails to come in. They have now extended this offer to include bet builders also. See below.

It appears as many selections can be added as you like, as long as there are no conflicts in the selections.

No, this is not possible on the Paddy Power app.

Unfortunately, Paddy Power do not filter out selections that conflict with existing ones. Therefore it is possible to add conflicting selections together, only to find out in the bet slip that the picks selected cannot be combined in to one bet.

Placing singles on each selection will still be possible. It will just be the Bet builder bet that will not be available to stake on.
