Can somebody tell me how the accumulator works ? hopefully Punk gets 4/1 or 5/1 odds , 1/2 is riduclous especially when you consider what happened last night when Punk rejected AJ's proposal. Oh JigsawKrueger i like your avatar with my cousin Fergal Devitt in it.
I'll give as easy example as I can.
In a Double/Treble/Accum, all multiples go up by 1 point.
I'll give examples using my own made up odds to make it as easy as possible. Obviously all fixed odds won't be as straight forward as 2/1, 4/1 etc, some are awkward to calculate. 5/2 becomes 7/2. That isn't easy to calculate in your head.
Anyway. . .
e.g, If I want to do a double of CM Punk @ 2/1 and Alberto Del Rio @ 4/1, it becomes 1 point added onto each bet and then the new odds are multiplied by eachother.
* = multiplied by
So €5 on the above bet becomes 5(3/1 (formerly 2/1) *5/1 (formerly 4/1)
€75 winnings. Plus your €5 stake, so it becomes €80 altogether.
Lets do a treble.
CM Punk @ 2/1, Alberto Del Rio @ 4/1 and also Tensai @14/1.
All go up 1 betting point. CM Punk becomes 3/1, Del Rio 5/1, Tensai 15/1.
I'm putting €2 on this treble.
€450 profit if they all win. ----> €452 full return.
It works the same for all multiple bets. I'll just show a 5 man accumulator here to give one last example.
CM Punk @ 2/1,Alberto Del Rio @ 4/1, Tensai @14/1, John Cena @ 1/1 and also Layla @ 4/1
Hypothetically we'll put €10 on this and remember, all odds go up by 1 point.
So. . 10(3*5*15*2*5)
€22500 profit. €22510 full return (including your stake)
Again, these are all basic odds, but are very handy.
There are odds calculators online too which help calculate potential winnings:
Just type in the odds of the bets you are thinking of and it automatically calculates them. I just thought it'd be cool to explain how they get the final winnings for people that didn't know.
Just checked my own calculations there and they are right. PHWEW
