A punter’s busiest time is at the weekend, as it’s where most of the football fixtures are played, especially league fixtures, with English, Scottish, Italian, Spanish, German and French divisions playing their games weekly somewhere between August and May. Betting on league games makes the weekend into a regular peak time, and there’s always more than enough matches to get involved with.

There are ways of getting more out of betting on all of the weekend football action and by having some rules, you could clinch yourself some better odds and a stronger assortment of selections to bet on. This sort of advice can be hard to find online but there are some websites that help less experienced punters, like FootyAccumulators, who provide their own football tips for the weekend and any other days where notable football fixtures are being played.

Here are some crucial tips for betting on football at the weekend:

Compare your football tips

When you’ve picked out an outcome that you want to back, and you’ve done all the research into past results and current form that indicate how strong your tip is, you need to see how it weighs up against experienced websites. FootyAccumulators always have football bets available on their site for anyone to see, making them a good example of a site that you can base your bets on, but any will do, as long as you can see what bets they’ve got available.

Although you shouldn’t completely disregard your tip if an experienced tipster site hasn’t got the same bet, it could be a sign that they’ve seen something you haven’t, so it’s worth investigating the reasoning behind similar tips. Football tips for the weekend are easier to pick with so many different games to pick from but it’s also easy to get them wrong.

Back your selections early

Bookmaker odds fluctuate all the time – sometimes significantly and other times by a very fine margin – so it’s worth backing your football tip early while the price is strong. If you’ve been able to track down a footy tip that’s especially worth backing, it could be one that the bookmakers think twice about, eventually leading to a far shorter set of odds. The odds on bookmaker markets can change by the amount of bets places by punters too, so fellow bettors can end up ruining good tips for you if they spot the same bet as you.
