Ever since the introduction of the feature which enables punters to build their own bets from scratch, there’s been a change in the sorts of bets being placed. Football betting was once exclusively dedicated to backing specific outcomes such as the match result, both teams to score and over 2.5 goals, but with things like SkyBet RequestABet, you’re able to identify exactly what outcomes you want to bet on.
Despite there now being several different versions of this with all of the UK’s top bookmakers, Sky Bet Request A Bets are easily the most popular. RABs are available for most sports and are always given plenty of options to bet on for each and every event. FootyAccumulators are one of the few places that has made the most of this type of bet. They always provide their own RABs for their followers on social media and even run their own Sky Bet Request A Bet tips page, so they’re worth checking out if you’re interested in gaining some insight.
How do Request A Bets work?
With all potential selections to choose from, you can ask for a handful of outcomes to be added into one far larger bet, which is then priced up by SkyBet. The odds you’ll be given for your RAB is based on the price of all selections you’ve chosen, meaning that you’ll be given a far stronger bookmaker price depending on which selections you add in.
Most sports offer their own selection of RequestABets but football is easily the most popular, with hundreds of markets made available for key games. Selections that appear frequently include Match Result, First or Anytime Goalscorer, Over or Under 2.5 Goals, Both Teams To Score, Handicaps, and a specific number of booking points or corners.
How do I get involved in making and backing my own RABs?
If you want to have your own RequestABet put together, you can do this through social media, the SkyBet app or their website. It’s best to do this prior to the event starting as, although not all RABs are guaranteed to be made, you’ll stand a stronger chance of having a price for your own bet if there’s time for SkyBet to calculate your odds. There’s also RequestABets during sports events but you’ll be given far more options pre-match, and it’s where most punters will get involved.
