Top 5 Football Betting Offers For New Season


What a year this is turning out to be for football fans. After a thrilling end to the 2021/22 Premier League campaign in which Manchester City came back from two goals down on the final day of the season to beat Aston Villa 3-2 and clinch the title from rivals Liverpool, England Women made history by beating Germany in the Euro 2022 final.

If that isn’t enough drama for you, we now have the 2022 World Cup to look forward to later this year but first, the Premier League is back for three and a half months before the winter break.

The start of the new season always brings us a flurry of betting offers from the top UK betting sites and this season is no different. 

As many of us will be looking to have a flutter on the matches throughout the coming season, we’ve put together a list of the top 5 football betting offers that are available.

Here they are…

2 Up has long been one of the most popular football betting offers and is available from bookmakers such as Bet365, Paddy Power, SkyBet and Star Sports.

Although the terms of 2 UP differs slightly between the bookies that offer it, the general rules remain the same.

If you back any team to win in an eligible football match and your team goes two goals ahead at any point during the match, your bet will be settled as a winner. It doesn’t matter if the other team comes back to win or draw as long as the team you have backed goes 2 up, your bet will be paid out.

A team going two goals ahead, whether it be 2-0, 3-1 or 4-2, gives them a huge advantage in the game but you may be surprised to see how many times the score ends level or the other team makes a comeback. This offer eliminates that risk with bets being settled shortly after the backed team leads by two goals.


  • ACCA Insurance

Acca Insurance is a betting offer that has been around for several years and one that is offered by several of the top bookies. It’s mainly used by punters on football matches but often also applies to other sports.

The terms of ACCA Insurance varies between bookies with some requiring four, five or six selections in the multiple to be eligible for a refund but the trigger for almost all of them is if just one selection lets you down.

You simply need to place an accumulator bet and if just one of your selections loses, your stake will be refunded.

Some bookmakers refund your stake as cash whereas others will credit it as a free bet. Either way, ACCA Insurance is a great offer that can ease the blow of your ACCA almost coming in but not.


  • Double Delight / Hat-Trick Heaven

This offer is exclusive to Betfred who are one of the UK’s most popular bookmakers.

Each week, Betfred lists a selection of upcoming football fixtures on their website that are eligible for Double Delight & Hat-Trick Heaven. 

You then need to place a pre-match single bet on the first goalscorer market on any of the specified matches.

If your chosen player scores the first goal, your bet will win. However, if they go on to score a second goal at any point during the match, your first scorer bet will be paid out at DOUBLE THE ODDS! If that isn’t enough, should your player go on to score a third goal, your bet will be paid out at TREBLE THE ODDS!

If you bet on the first goalscorer in football matches, Double Delight / Hat-Trick Heaven is a must have offer for you.

  • Bore Draw Refund

Have you ever placed a bet on a football match, whether it be on a correct score, scorecast or HT/FT market, only for the game to end 0-0 and ruin all your bets? If so, you may wish to think about placing your future bets with Bet365 who offer a Bore Draw Refund.

Simply place your bets on any of the above markets and if the game ends goalless, Bet365 will refund losing stakes as a free bet.

Other bookmakers have similar offers available. For example, Bet600 also offers Bore Draw Money Back with theirs applying to bets placed on the First Goalscorer market. 

Quinnbet is another bookie with refunds credited on losing First/Anytime Goalscorer, Correct Score, Half-Time/Full-Time and Scorecasts if the match ends 0-0.
