Sequential lay betting is an important technique that involves matched betting, making it very important for players who are expanding their matched betting journey. Sequential laying is an alternative way of laying off a multiple bet, whether this be doubles, trebles or accumulators that have been placed at the bookmakers. Here, we will go through how these lay bets work, how they link to matched betting and finally, how to use the OddsMonkey sequential lay calculator specifically.

## What is Sequential Laying

As previously mentioned, sequential laying is the technique of placing lay bets against multiple different selections and legs, such as accumulators. This technique can only work if the sporting events do not overlap, such as football matches beginning at 3:00 P.M, as this does not allow for sequential lay bets. This form of betting is usually seen throughout football and horse racing but can be applied to other sporting events.

The idea behind sequential laying is to place a lay bet on the first leg; if that wins, then the player can place a lay bet on the second leg and so forth until one of the legs loses, in which case you stop. This will all become clear when it is used with other matched betting techniques.

## How Sequential Laying Works With Matched Betting

To use this technique effectively, we must take advantage of bonuses which are seen at plenty of bookmakers such as any offers which need to place a multiple for your qualifying bet. However, sequential laying works for enhanced multiples, and acca insurance offers where you get a free bet if one leg lets you down.

An example could be an enhanced multiple for Manchester United, Arsenal and Chelsea all to win, by using careful mathematics and the OddsMonkey sequential lay calculator, we can find out the amounts needed to guarantee a profit and therefore create a matched bet.

## How To Use The Sequential Lay Calculator

In the typical style of OddsMonkey betting calculators, the sequential lay calculator here is extremely helpful and informative, ensuring that players are well-informed before placing any stakes. First, the player must make sure the sequential lay calculator is set up in the right mode, with the options being ‘Normal’ and ‘Free Bet’ for the bet type and there ‘Standard’ and ‘Underlay’ modes.

Then, the player must place the ‘back’ details of the bet into the sequential lay calculator. This is the stake, odds, commission and legs in the bet. The legs are how many different sections are included in the bet, with the maximum amount being a ‘Six Fold’, which features six legs.

Once the number of legs is decided and the back bet details are entered into the sequential lay calculator, the lay bet details must be played with the odds and commission needed, and then OddsMonkey will recommend a stake for each of the legs. Players can then decide if they want to place the recommended stakes or if they want to choose their own stakes.

Following the actual stake amounts being entered, the sequential lay calculator will walk through every section of the leg, showing how much money is lost during legs and how much could be made through different outcomes and results, with a total summary displayed on the right-hand side. If done correctly, players can work out how much they are expected to win or lose, depending on how much is at stake and depending on the odds.

An important factor to remember is that each leg of the acca must end before the next one starts, as you are always waiting to find out the result of the previous leg before the next one begins.
