Now that you have seen how matched betting works and how you can guarantee yourself a profit from this basic strategy, let’s dive into what matched betting actually is and what you might want to know before you decide to place your very first matched bet!

What Is Matched Betting

Matched betting is a strategy whereby you place opposing bets on the same game, match, race or event. The purpose is to create a guaranteed profit or minimise a loss (i.e. Qualifying Loss), regardless of the outcome or result. The opposing bets comprise of 1) a back bet made at the bookmaker, and 2) a lay bet made at the betting exchange.

How Do I Make Money From Matched Betting

When placing opposing bets, the profit comes from the margin that is created between those opposing bets. This margin can either be created from differing odds, free bets or some other type of special offer by the bookmaker. This margin ensures that we can make a guaranteed profit, regardless of the outcome or result. This will become clearer to you as you continue to follow this guide.

How Much Money Can I Expect To Make

When you’re starting out with little or no experience, you can reasonably expect to make around £300 per month! Once you become more experienced and move onto the advanced strategies, as well as dedicate more time to matched betting, you can then reasonably expect to make around £1,500 per month!

Matched Betting can be done on any day (weekdays and weekends) and in your own time. Your earning potential depends on the time and effort that you are willing or able to commit. Those that are able to commit a few hours a week can expect to make a nice steady side income from matched betting. You can make consistent money even if you only spend 10 minutes a day! Those that are more dedicated and/or able to commit more time, say a few hours per day, can expect to make larger sums of money!

Is There Really No Risk Involved In Matched Betting

There are many different types of strategies in matched betting, but the most basic strategy carries no risk and we can show you how to profit from this and build up your income very quickly! As you move further along into your matched betting journey, more advanced strategies will carry some risk but this risk is very low in comparison to the potential for much higher rewards!

Who Is Matched Betting Suited For

Matched betting is suited for everyone, particularly for someone who is looking to:

  • Build an income if they are not currently working
  • Build an additional income if they are already working
  • Build up some money for a particular expense, e.g. deposit for a house, wedding, car, holiday, university tuition fees, or to start a business etc

Fortunately, many people have successfully been able to finance their own goals thanks to matched betting!

Do I Need Any Prior Knowledge Of Sports Or Betting

Not at all, matched betting is an easy strategy to follow and everything is calculated for you.

How Much Money Do I Need To Get Started

The basic tools to get started with are free. The only money you need is to simply fund your bookmaker and exchange accounts. £50 should be enough to get started.

Does Matched Betting Involve Gambling

Unlike the name suggests, matched betting doesn’t actually involve gambling. The crux of basic matched betting is that we are making a profit, regardless of the outcome or result. Our profit is not dependent on a particular winner. More advanced strategies will involve some degree of probability, but not in the same way as traditional betting, as we shall find out later in this guide.

Is Matched Betting A Form Of Cheating

Matched betting is recognised as a perfectly legitimate strategy. In fact, matched betting is similar to a strategy that bookmakers use themselves: whereby they accept bets from gamblers at certain odds, then offset those bets elsewhere at odds more favourable to them, where they can profit from the margin created by the difference between those odds, regardless of the outcome or result.

Do I Have To Pay Tax On My Matched Betting Profits

Not at all, there is no tax to pay on any money made from gambling. Fortunately, for tax purposes, HMRC does not distinguish matched betting from gambling, and so any profit you make is not subject to tax.
