One of the newest ways of betting comes in the form of ‘request a bet’ or ‘bet builder’. Below you will find all our advice, help and how to guide for betting on our request a bet tips for the upcoming football fixtures.
Depending on which bookmaker you use will depend what this type of bet is labeled as. Sky Bet started the whole thing off with request a bet but since then, most other bookmakers have got involved including bet365 with their ‘bet builder’ and Paddy Power with the ‘same game multi’.
Each time there is a big TV game coming up we’re going to do our research and put together our own request-a-bet tip. You can use a few different bookmakers for this but we’ll be using bet365’s ‘bet builder’ because it is so easy to use and you get the odds for the bet straight away. If you need a bet365 account, open one via this bet365 sign-up link and get their bonus.
The match our bet builder betting tip for today comes from is: Liverpool vs Manchester City
One the betting slip above, you will see the selections we have made for our bet builder at bet365. For you to follow the bet you simply need to hit a link to bet365 > go the the match and click Bet Builder, then selected the predictions we have done.
When you place a request a bet, you are picking selections from THE SAME match that you think will happen. As you will see from today’s request a bet tip above, all the predictions are from the same fixture. All of these need to happen for the bet to be a winner. If one or more of the predictions is wrong, the request a bet will lose.
As mentioned above, different bookmakers call these types of bet different names so below we’ve got the most popular ones outlined for you. It might be wise to have an account with a few different request a bet bookmakers because you’ll likely find the odds vary dramatically from one bookmaker to another.
The bet365 request a bet is called ‘Bet Builder‘ and this can easily be accessed via the match in questions page on the bet365 website. From here you will be able to pick the selections you want and you’ll immediately see the odds for your bet builder on that match. The more selections you add to your bet builder, the bigger the odds for the bet will be. You can choose from betting markets such as first or anytime goalscorer, correct score, total goals, bookings, corners or winning margin when using bet365’s bet builder.
At the moment, William Hill do not offer a service as good as bet365, because you have to literally request the odds for your bet from William Hill on Twitter. This means you don’t get an immediate answer. On the flip side of this, it does mean you get to see other people’s request-a-bet predictions and you can bet on them too. These will be shown on the William Hill homepage and each specific matches #YourOdds will be shown on the page of that fixture.
The Paddy Power branded request a bet is called Same Game Multi and like bet365, you immediately get the odds for your selections, so this is a great one to use. To get your same game multi odds, navigate your way to the match you want to bet on and start picking your selections. At Paddy Power you can include things like over/under 2.5 goals, anytime goalscorer, team to win or total number of corners on your Paddy Power same game multi tips. One great perk with using Paddy Power is, if you have four or more selections and one causes your bet to lose, you get a refund.
The main market where request-a-bet takes place is on football matches, but you can use it on horse racing on some websites. For the time being, our request a bet tips will be sticking with football and the upcoming big matches, especially in the Premier League and Champions League games. Just pick the selections you want from the relevant betting markets and you’ll get the odds instantly.
