Event Cancelled. How Does This Impact My Acca Price Boost?
Reading Time: 7 mins
Dreaded Covid or bad weather have reared their ugly head and we have seen some match cancellations. During these unprecedented times, it’s vital to know how to adjust our acca price boost bets under any circumstance. This guide will have you covered!
The first thing to do is know your position and find out what the bookie or the exchange is doing due to the cancellation.
If a leg is cancelled in a bookie price boost acca, then they will generally keep the acca running with the active bets.
Smarkets and Betfair will also do the same. In this case, you would just need to find out what the new back odds are after the reduction and what the lay odds have been reduced to. Then, you would simply use the normal calculator and compare what you layed to what you would need to have layed at the new odds and amend the lay bet accordingly. ✔️📱
⚠️Do avoid laying your Skybet and Paddy bets on Betfair as they are the same company.
⚠️If you have layed on Matchbook, do be careful because they will void the acca lay bet completely and return your lay stake. So, in this case, you would either cash out your bet at the bookie if possible or see if Matchbook have created a new lay market for just the active legs
simply create a lay market for the active legs on Smarkets and then lay that using the new back odds and lay odds.
⚠️If a leg is cancelled from your acca on William Hill, the entire acca will be void.
If you have layed on Matchbook, then this is fine as they will have cancelled the lay bet and returned your lay stake.✔️
⚠️If you have layed on Smarkets or Betfair, you would then need to cash out the lay bet by creating a double back bet on Smarkets for the active leg and placing a back bet to cancel out the lay. 📱
