Hope that helps. However, and this might be a stupid question but is there a way or a website in which you can get your money back quicker? Hi Louise. Once you start to build your pot though, things become a lot easier in that respect. When using the free bet you say high odds are best but is there a limit to this? When we talk about placing free bets at higher odds to maximise our profits, that only applies if the lay odds are relatively close to the back odds.
Odds anywhere between 5. Feel free to take a look at my Free Bet Strategy page for more info. I have made the qualifying bet, and I am about to make the free bet. Or is the source of the profit based on the free bets only? Thanks, Bradley. Hi Brad. Hi Matt, thank you for your guide on matched betting. I was looking to get started by signing up to betfair so I went on to trust pilot to read the reviews. Betfair gets a 1. Are these reviews genuine or should I disregard them. Will the exchanges pay when you ask to withdraw your money.
Thanks J. Firstly can I say what a fountain of knowledge this website is. A question if I may. There are plenty of online bookmakers, including new ones popping up all the time. You very much get out what you put in. For instance, there are advanced methods you can look into beyond the reload offers and there are also shop offers to consider. My question: do I need to wait for this first bet to settle before placing the free bets or can I just do it as soon as the free bets are available to use?
I want to try a qualifying bet and what I got on Coral was 1. On betfair exchange I got 1. So your calculator says the lay stake required is 4. Alternatively, if the lay bet wins I will lose 5 with coral but gain 4. But when I go to betfair and put 4. We use decimal odds at the bookmaker so that we can easily compare our bookmaker back odds with our exchange lay odds.
Bookmakers display decimal odds to two decimal places, but the actual values may differ slightly. Rounding is nothing to worry about though. Hi Matt. Your blog is one of the simplest to understand. I can see that that the results of the oddsmatcher are sorted by bet rating but can this be changed to sorted to by the highest odds? Also, I only have a Betfair exchange account, so can I filter out the Smarkets lines?
Hi Richard. Alternatively, free bets should generally be placed at odds of 5. Thanks for providing this. After many hours of study, I finally decided to have a go — opened accounts with Coral and Betfair, and deposited some money. Having found what I believed to be a good match, I tried to place my bet with Coral, but got a message that my account had been closed.
I then got an email telling me that I had to upload endless documents — passport, credit card both sides, with some numbers edited out , utility bill, picture of myself holding my passport etc. Bookmakers have to comply with UK gambling regulations and that means sometimes they will request documentation from you in order to verify your identity. The easiest thing to do is keep a copy of your documents so that you can just fire them off if a bookmaker requests them.
Thanks for guide and calculator, dipped into this for the first time using your guide at the start of the week. Small but steady steps so far, already cleared my Coral offer. Is this more or less likely to occur if I leave a bit of money in my coral account do you think? Or is it more straightforward to just empty the account and forget about it, thus moving on to the next business?
With regards to bankroll management as a newbie, my advice would be to do what you need to in the early days. If anything, it might increase your chances. Nice one. Thanks again. No problem Gerry. The back bets are with two separate betting websites free bets not qualifiers however it means that in my Betfair exchange I now have two separate lays on the two different teams in the same game in this case a lay against Burnley and a lay against Brighton.
Is there any obvious reason why this should be avoided other than to minimise confusion? Covering two different teams in the same market actually reduces your overall liability, meaning less funds are required to place your bets. Your liability for a market is always the maximum amount you stand to lose.
That means your overall liability would have been limited to whichever team had the largest individual liability. Hi there mate. One or two bookies are offering generous signup offers for pool bets. With pools betting, all bets are placed into the same pot. Once the result is in, the pot is then split between all bettors who predicted the correct outcome. There are no odds involved, which makes it difficult to place lay bets and cover all outcomes.
Total newbie… Just joined Coral and there is absolutely nowhere on the site that I can see a button or a link to take me to where I can change the odds to decimal, any ideas… its not on the header and its not in my account settings either.
However I noticed something this morning when placing a regular bet I have learned the hard way that I need to do this from time to time to avoid being gubbed. I used your calculator to help me lay the bet to minimise my losses as follows:. Layed the back bet with Smarkets: Lay Odds — 1. Hi there. That can happen with the calculator. The lay odds at the exchanges are rounded to two decimal places.
So, although you might be seeing the lay odds displayed as 1. You might want to consider placing your mug bets at odds that are bit higher though. I think the term is gubbed? Is there anything to do or not do in order for accounts to not be closed? There are plenty of theories out there in terms of what may or may not help your accounts. They make their money by charging us a small commission on winning bets so they love matched bettors.
Hi Matt, I just found out about matched betting and I think this guide is very good, but have a question about bonuses. Lets say for example, I join Coral and Betfair, I am eligible for a new user bonus in both, but then I join Bet and use Betfair again, now I can only get a bonus on Bet Will this be profitable? The betting exchange is simply the place you go to lay against your bookmaker bets, so you can place all of your lay bets at Betfair if you wish.
I have just come across your blog. I have never done this before. Would it be possible to make a big profit all at once if I had the bankroll? Many thanks. Your email address will not be published.

Hi Chris, The welcome offers are just a starting point really. Hi Matt, I read your very helpful blog and I think I got the hang of it. Hi Michael. Thanks for following! I hope that helps! Hi Matt, Thanks for the insightful article, it really helped!
Hi Matt Great blog, so insightful and bless you for sharing your knowledge and allowing others to benefit from these offers! Yes that makes sense now I get it! No problem at all, happy to help! How many bookmakers do you need to have accounts with to make matched betting work? Living in the UK which bookmaker?
Disclaimer : This is all mathematically speaking. In rare cases where the Bookmaker does not pay out, or voids your bets, you are not guaranteed profits. If not skip the rest of this section, and just take my word for it. Think about it: to you the Bookie account has not lost anything. Not bad for betting without risk. In most cases only your very first bet counts. Remember: no free bet means no profit.
Also be aware that my example only shows you how to deal with one scenario. To learn how to approach each and every free bet, subscribe to OddsMonkey. Every case is perfectly explained. Betfair to place your Lay bet. I have suggested seeking popular sports events in order to avoid running into low liquidity problems on the Betting Exchange. In the wort case scenario, consider queuing your Lay bet at a higher price. I highly recommend signing up.
I am new to matched betting and this is the most information I have found in one place! I have probably searched more websites than I care to count trying to find someone who explains it as well as you do. Thank you for taking the time to create this guide and give newbies like myself a good start. Glad to be of help! Luckily I could recall some of the questions I had when I first did it myself.
I remember the best thing for me to understand it was by playing around with numbers in the calculators, seeing what maximised the profit, what incurred the most loss. The conclusion i made was that it was pretty much just arbing at a small loss, but with a free bet attached — making it profitable!
I think that explaining things with the Maths as I have is probably unnecessary for most of us. Playing around with the calculator makes it easier to fully appreciate how it all works. They both offer similar functionality and are pretty much neck-and-neck. Hello,you have very nice site with useful informations,i am new to arbitrage but i like the system with free bets and Matched betting.
I have a problem and i want your opinion. I am from Greece,here the exchanges bookmakers like betfair,matchbook and many others are not accept three years now to my country. In past i had a account to betfair. I thinking a trick to trading again,i want to use VPN to hide my IP,you think that trick will be good idea to trading in betfair hiding my IP? This trick is good and for arbitrage to see the book different country IP every time that make log in? Additionally they may ask for ID or an addressed bill, in which case there is no hiding your true location.
If however you have a permanent address abroad, then you may have the right to bet from that location as a citizen of that country. Be careful with trying to get around these issues as Bookmakers are likely to be aware of the tricks used. They also match new accounts up with old ones, so bare that in mind. Thank you for your advice,i will be very carefully. The pinnacle make a new site that accept me to bet there,this hapened because our country dont know this new site so is not in the black list.
I have make many bets there,as you know pinnacle have high odds and is very friendly to arbs. The only that want is to bet 3x the ammount that you deposit before withdraw. But i will make a test to withdraw some money to be sure. I have already send the documents that they want. I think youll be much better off playing there than trying to get around the restrictions at other bookies.
Yes you have right. I have focus to arbs now. I am looking a good free software or service to see arbs in live option but is difficult to find live,there are some good sites like oddsportal that give surebets but is in delay. The most good program is the relbetting but is expencive for the momment,maybe use it later. If you know or if you have already compare arbs softwares and know something good and cheap just tell me.
Yes, I highly recommend using OddsMonkey for free arbs. I have test it,is good for others,but for me is not so good because i have few bookmakers to make arbs,i was test the dutch premium for days but nothing send me arbs so cancel the premiun and i have make a filter to show me my bookmakers if see any arbs to send me email. I have test some others arbs services,so far the best is the betonvalue,it have more arbs for my bookmakers but is a little delay the signals,i have ask them to test the premium that is more faster without delay and i will tell you if it is better.
When i say good always i mean good for me that have few bookmakers,i dont say that is not good any of the others arbs services for others people. I have test and the arbhunters that is a little more cheaper from betonvalue,its good but same few arbs.
Yes, in your case you may need more options. For those in unrestricted locations OddsMonkey should be sufficient. I try to keep on the lookout but most alternatives tend to either be either expensive… or not really professional enough. Please keep me posted. For the first part yes, you lose a bit. You have 2 cases for the free bet part:. In this case you win your Lay bet and make an easy profit. Your Bookmaker account wins money without you placing any stake yourself, but your Lay bet loses.
You have to be careful to use the OddsMonkey calculator correctly by selecting the right bet type. Other than that, it works. Thanks for the really speedy reply! I completely understand the small loss in part 1 in order to get the free bet for part 2. The easy part is when the Lay bet wins. Simple as that. Is that it? However, if it does win then you lose the big amount?
If they win that bet, then you have to pay them their winnings. If Spurs WIN then you have to pay 3. Well I joined Oddsmonkey with the free trial today and did my first offer. Around 5. With Matched Betting the Bookies are more likely to spot you if you bet on very obscure sports events. They love professional gamblers. I think they are probably mopping up every free bet they find, or all the ones provided by services like OddsMonkey.
There are some bigger offers too, as you say. Once your comfortable it could be worth doing those as well. Thanks Toby. Thank you for your patience and detailed explanations. Maybe I will try the trial on Profitaculumator and see if it gets clearer with the videos and giving it a go though I am worried I will lose money.
But I will look for low liability ones I guess and use the tools to try and get the best matches. Everyone keeps saying the more you can have in the pot the more profit you can make. Probably the biggest mistake you could make is double-backing. Avoid doing that at all costs. Thanks for this guide! A lot of helpful tips. Does the same process work with other services like profit accumulator?
Is this unique for Oddsmonkey users? Yes, it also works with Profit Accumulator. They both save you an awful lot of time, basically. If you just cancel out bets by backing it and then betting against it then why do you even need the free bets? Cant it be done without them? Matched Betting only makes a profit because of the free bets.

So I would bet on an outcome to happen. For each offer bettors take advantage of, they place both a back and a lay bet like the example above.

No-risk matched betting may seem quite challenging for beginners. There are lots of new concepts and key terms to get your head around. This avoids any confusion and stops you making any mistakes. Furthermore, matched betting services will greatly increase the profitability and long term success of your betting strategy. They offer a brilliant service with a free trial also available. These match betting need-to-knows will prevent you from riding your luck or relying on chance, resulting in a steady monthly income for years to come.
One of the most common questions I get is whether matched betting is still profitable in The short answer is yes, despite what you might read about a reduction in the number of offers available. Matched betting remains a viable side hustle, provided you approach it with patience and discipline. Much of the scepticism that surrounds matched betting comes from the simple fact that it sounds too good to be true. Our job is simply to take advantage of these offers with a couple of simple, risk-free betting techniques explained below.
So the concept of backing and laying is straightforward. Having the option to do either gives us the ability to bet both sides of a game or event, effectively cancelling out any risk. And if you lose, the bookie keeps your stake. The most you can ever lose is your stake.
The key thing to remember is that when you enter your lay stake, this is the maximum you can win from that bet; however, you could lose more if the odds are over evens. It probably comes as no surprise to learn that matched betting starts with the cash in your account. But not as much as you might expect. Or, in some instances, even less! Of course, the more upfront cash you have set aside, the more offers you can complete at any one time.
Below I will outline a tried and tested step-by-step process for matched betting. The first thing to do is sign up to a betting exchange. The big difference with a betting exchange is that it allows members to bet against each other, rather than the house. And that means having the option to place a lay bet, i. There are tons of betting exchanges across the web, but by far the most widely used is run by Betfair. The Betfair Exchange generally has more market liquidity than other platforms, which makes it easier to place a bet.
These are by far the best bonuses offered to punters. Betting Exchange, check. Bookmaker account, check. In step two, you set up an account with a bookmaker and received a sign-up bonus. This is pretty good, as a lot of bookmakers set the qualifying bet to at least evens.
This neat bit of tech takes the hassle out of finding games for qualifying bets. Okay, so this is the part where we start making money. All we now need to do is take the free bets and place them on other matches. Most matched betters aim to turn around 80 per cent of their free bets into real money. Now, of course, there are several ways you could extract this profit, but often the manual approach is a little time-consuming.
Their odds matching tool finds BACK and LAY odds from more bookmakers than you can shake a stick at — including the leading betting exchanges. Below is an example of a game between Armenia vs Italy from the European Championships. If we BACK the correct score to be in the match at odds of Bingo — the magic 80 percent. It should make more sense once you put it into practice. Give them a browse and good luck with bashing the bookies!
As ridiculous as it might sound, this happens quite a lot. However, the one advantage in our court is that there are hundreds of bookmakers in the industry. So, in the unfortunate situation that you get gubbed, just move your business elsewhere. You can also restrict the amount you matched bet to try and stay under the radar. You can read more about this topic in our guide to gubbing in In the UK and Ireland, any winnings from gambling are exempt from tax.

In other words, you are 'matching' your bet. For this reason, matched betting is generally accepted as being risk-free. My 'What is matched betting?' overview will clear up.
