Laying DIY Bet Offers

#Build-a-Price-for-Your-Bet-Request-Odds-Today-Please (or something!)

Each site calls it something different, but #PriceItUp/Build Your Bet/RequestABet etc are all effectively the same thing—you either build your own accumulator or choose one pre-made where all the legs are on the same event usually at huge odds.

Punters are drawn to them as they love the potential of a big pay out, but they are not usually good value for matched bettors as they can be difficult to lay, which is probably why the bookies love them too!

However, because quite a few offers now stipulate using these markets, we have provided you with a couple of examples of where you can lay them, which will hopefully give you ideas for building your own bets!

Build Your Bet

Here is a list of some of the bookies that provide tools on their website for you to build your own bet—these can be laid like the examples below:

Please note: More and more bookies are adding this feature, so the actual list will be much bigger!

  • 10Bet – Create Your Bet (mobile only)
  • Bet365 – Bet Builder
  • Betway - BetYourWay
  • Bwin – Build a Bet
  • Coral – Build Your Bet
  • Skybet/Betstars – RequestABet
Example 1:

You build a combo bet on Sky’s RequestABet market on the Fulham v Arsenal match to qualify for a £10 free bet refund if Arsenal win. You could attempt to bet £10 on Draw, Under 2.5 Goals and BTTS Yes at odds of 8.5.

Because there can only be one scoreline that satisfies all these outcomes, you lay £9.88 on Correct Score 1-1 at Smarkets at odds of 8.6.

Example 2:

Bwin offers you 10 free spins on Loot‘Enkhamun if you place a £10 bet on Newcastle Utd v Manchester Utd using their Build a Bet builder. You try choosing BTTS Yes, Manchester Utd to Win and Over 1.5 Goals at 9.0.

You could lay £9.38 on the Manchester Utd to Win and BTTS market at 9.6.

Example 3:

Coral gives you 5 golden roulette chips when you place a £10 bet using their using their Build Your Bet builder for the Wales v Spain game. You attempt to build the following: Spain to Win, Correct Score 0-3 and BTTS No at 15.0 You can lay £9.09 on Correct Score 0-3 at odds of 16.5.

Be aware that some sites are savvy to this kind of manipulation of their bet builders and won’t allow you to pick outcomes that all result in a single scoreline, so always make sure you can place the back bet before laying.

The following sites ask you to mention them on Twitter with your bet request using their hashtag and they may give you a price depending on whether their traders feel it is a fair request or not.

It’s debatable whether they’re worth doing as traders are clever people and won’t give up value easily, but you can always try your luck.

  • Betfred - #PickYourPunt
  • BetVictor – #PriceItUp
  • Ladbrokes – #GetAPrice
  • Paddy Power - #WhatOddsPaddy
  • William Hill – #YourOdds

Instead of laying, you could treat them as advantage play if they are trigger bets, or risk-free punts if you have been given a free bet that must be placed on these markets!
