Our Top Bet Builder Tips and Predictions for
Before we go on and talk about this feature in more detail, we first want to provide you with our top Bet Builder picks:
Valencia vs Athletic Bilbao: Two-Leg Bet Builder @ 10/3 (4.33)
Both Teams to Score: Yes
Match Result: Draw
The two teams enter this game hoping to secure a spot in the semi-final of Copa del Rey. Valencia reached the finals last season and they are hosting the game but they are in poor form this season, while Athletic Bilbao is doing ok. We can see this match ending in a draw, whcih was the case in four of the last five duels between these two teams.
The second selection for our two-Leg Bet Builder wager is for both teams to score. After all, that happened in three of the last five h2h meetings between Valencia and Athletic Bilbao.
Kick-Off: 19:00 GMT, 26/01/23
Real Madrid vs Atletico Madrid: Three-Leg Bet Builder @ 17/2 (9.50)
Match Result: Real Madrid to Win
Total Goals: Under 3
Anytime Goalscorer: Karim Benzema
The city derby of Madrid in Copa del Rey quarter-finals should be an interesting one. However, Atletico has struggled this season, while Real Madrid is having another good season. Real is also hosting the game, so we can see them winning and when Real Madrid wins, Karim Benzema usually scores a goal.
Meanwhile, the last five h2h meetings between these two teams have all gone under three goals. With that in mind, our final prediction for this match is that we won't see more than two goals in it.
Kick-Off: 20:00 GMT, 26/01/23

What Is the Bet Builder Feature?
Bet Builder is a feature that allows bettors to place multiple bets on the same game. In a nutshell, it is a feature that helps you create an accumulator bet where all selections are from one match or event. However, keep in mind that you can also create a Bet Builder bet with as few as two selections.
Another thing that's important to know is that the Bet Builder odds you get will likely be lower than the odds you would get if you just multiplied your selections, as you would do with a regular accumulator bet. However, that is the price you have to pay if you want to bet on multiple betting markets from a single game – you wouldn't be able to do this otherwise, without using the Bet Builder feature.
The most popular use of Bet Builder is for football games, but you can use this feature to bet on other sports as well, like basketball, ice hockey, tennis, cricket, and many others. That being said, some bookies limit Bet Builder offers to football or just the most popular events from other sports.
On top of that, it's important to keep in mind that not all bookies have this feature or if they do, it might be called something other than Bet Builder, like Same Game Multi or Request a Bet.
In fact, Bet Builder was previously known as Request a Bet feature, where you would have to send your selections to your bookie via social media (usually on Twitter with a specific hashtag) or email and then wait for them to respond with the odds. With the Bet Builder feature, that process is automated and you get your odds instantly, although some bookies still use the Request a Bet feature instead.
How to Use the Bet Builder Feature
Using the Bet Builder Feature is rather simple. The first step is to find a bookmaker that offers the Bet Builder feature. Once you do this, just follow these steps:
- Choose the match you want to bet on
- Click on the Bet Builder tab for the game you selected
- Start building the bet by adding your selections (click on the desired betting market to add the selection)
- With each selection you add, you will instantly see the odds for your Bet Builder wager
- Once you add all selections that you want, place/confirm your bet
Keep in mind that Bet Builder only works with pre-game betting markets, so you won't be able to place a Bet Builder wager on live games. Also, the Bet Builder feature will automatically eliminate conflicting or contradictory combinations, so you won't be able to make a mistake like that when you place your bet.
Bet Builder on Mobile Apps
Given the rise of popularity when it comes to mobile sports betting, most bookies today also have mobile apps that you can download, install, and use to place your bets. Also, most of the bookmakers that offer the Bet Builder feature provide it on both their desktop site and mobile app, although in some cases, the Bet Builder feature can be found exclusively on one of the platforms.
Bet Builder Odds
As we already mentioned, Bet Builder odds aren't the same as odds on regular accumulator bets since they aren't calculated the same way by simply multiplying the odds. In fact, each bookmaker has its own way to calculate the odds for their Bet Builder feature, so Bet Builder odds for same selections can vary from one bookie to another.
We tested this to check out which bookies offer the best Bet Builder odds and found that Betfair had the best odds, followed by Unibet, 888sport and bet365, while the other bookies were behind. However, this was tested on a few examples only and the result could be different from one game to another.
