Betvictor is a name steeped in betting history. For football betting, they are the standout app available. The app is simple to register on and use and you can be betting on the football in under 5 minutes from starting the registration process. It scored really well across all the football betting criteria including excellent scores for the range of accumulators on offer as well as their bet builder – know as #Priceitup.
Here is a video guide to the app – You need to be signed in to YouTune and over 18 to watch!
Why Bet Victor scored so highly for football betting
- Bet Builder – An instant (and we mean instant) price for all bet builder matches. There is a great range of markets to pick from and this is, in our opinion, the best football bet builder on offer.
Here is how it looks on the app –
We found the following markets on offer
- To win the match
- Various corner betting options
- Under: Overs goal markets and BTTS yes: no
- Player to be carded
- Team cards
- 1st half and 2nd half markets
- NEW: Type of goal – Header, outside the box, free kick, penalty. (Select for individual players or the team)
The choice almost seems endless with all the options listed above. You can build anything from small value bets to massive in match bets. Price it up bets can be combined in accumulators too!
Another thing we were really impressed with is the range of coupons. When betting apps first came around, they had a very limited number of coupons on offer with 1X2 and Over under 2.5 about the only choices. The Bet Victor app is light years away from that now! You can select your coupons by the market or by the league or competition. It’s really quick and easy to put accumulators bets on and odds update in real-time at the betslip at the bottom of the app. There is a good choice of other multiple bet options if you don’t want to place a straight acca bet.
Here are the football coupons we found available in testing –
- All English leagues and cups
- All Scottish leagues and cups
- European leagues and cups
- Other leagues and cups
- UEFA competitions
- Asia coupon
- Americas coupon
- International coupon
- Euro2020 coupon
- UEFA Nations league coupon
- Football e-Sports coupon
- Copa America coupon
- World cup 2022 coupon
Coupons by market: day
- Match result
- Match result and both teams to score
- Total goals over/under 2.5
- Total goals over/under 1.5
- A Goal in both halves yes/no
- Asain handicap
- Asian goal line
Here is the coupon hub on the app
The app is our top-rated football betting app for iPhone and Android.
Betfred is a name notorious for football betting in the UK – We would be amazed if you’d not heard of them. Whilst they are not the biggest name on social media or through TV advertising they do have a quality betting app that football fans will love.
If you like placing accas then this is the app for you!
Why Betfred scored well for football betting –
Ease of placing accumulators
Acca betting is huge in the UK and the Betfred app really taps into that.
When you land on the app home page tap the football icon to get to the football betting home page, As shown below.
As you can see the home page starts with a list of leagues. If you tap into any of the leagues you will get a choice of bets to view. You can either tap into a match-list coupon, which is all the upcoming games on the 1×2 market. Alternatively, you can tap on the league name again to bring up all the season bets.
When we re checking we found the following betting markets for the Premier League
- Outright winner
- Top goalscorer
- Top 4 finish
- Top 6 finish
- Top 10 finish
- Bottom half finish
- To stay up
- To finish bottom
We felt this was a good choice of markets for the season. These are all in-play markets so the odds are live when you check them and change regularly after games based on the results.
One thing that caught our eye on the app was the tv matches coupon. This covers every game shown live on TV in the UK covering various channels as shown below
- Sky Sports
- BT Sport
- BT Sport ESPN
- BBC Scotland
- Premier Sports
- Free sports
- Amazon Prime Video
- LA Liga TV
It also shows you the channel number the match is on. You can either place your bets on the 1×2 market from here or tap into more bets in blue to get the full market for each game.

Here’s everything you need to know about football betting in the UK!
Most betting apps in the UK now have a bet builder element included. This varies from Bet Victor where you get an instant price through to Sky Bet where you have to tweet them and wait to see if they accept your bet and give you a price. If you cannot think of your own bets, or just want some inspiration, you can look at other peoples bets too. These are all available on desktop sites as well as iPhone and Android apps.
The markets they cover usually include the following bets –
- Outright market
- Both teams to score markets
- Goalscorer markets
- Corner markets
- Card markets
Here is an example from the Betvictor app –
On our blog, we have a selection of bet builder stats covering card and corner stats for the Premier League –
Corner betting apps
If you have the time to research corner statistics to identify trends, it could well give you a slight edge over the average corner betting punter. Some teams play a lot wider than others, leading to more corner opportunities. People have started noticing this and have started to bet accordingly.
You can bet on team corners, match corners, first-half corners, second-half corners, race to a certain amount of corners, team to get next corner and the list goes on.
Corner betting has become a popular niche for dedicated bettors who follow stats and look for value odds to back. There has also been a rise in interest with corners on Bet Builders.
Our top-rated app for corner betting is bet365. Here is how the corner markets look on bet365
Best app for accumulators & coupons
If you like building a big acca on the weekend then you’ll want the best app for the job. The amount of football coupons varies by the app, along with how easy it is to switch between them to get your bets placed. If you’re a regular accumulator punter then you’ll want the widest choice and the easiest bets. Some apps have their own unique coupons, such as Corals football jackpot. There are also some new players in the market that offer more pools style bets like Colossus Bets.
