Long Term Matched Betting Profits: My Strategy
Long term matched betting can be just as profitable as those early days of easy sign-up offers.
Matched betting is a great ways to make money and I see it as a part-time job. The money is good, you work from the comfort of your sofa and choose your own hours.
But how do you make long term matched betting profits?
Here is the strategy I’m following to make long term matched betting profits, tried and tested, which make an average of £90 per week.
How to Make Long Term Matched Betting Profits
As an existing customer, I get a lot of emails from bookie sites each week offering free bets. I flag them up and then blast through them all when I have half an hour. Over the previous two weeks, I’ve had the following offers:
- Wager £50 pre-game, get £50 in-play
- Bet £20 on Premier League Football
- £10 on NFL and Get £10 for any market
- Bet £5, Get £5
- £10 refund if losing
- Scratch and Win (e.g. a scratchcard containing offers for free bets and spins, that can be attempted on Saturdays and Sundays every week)
There is a whole host of ongoing offers to choose from, and these offers only take a few minutes to complete each. Expect to make an average of £20 per week profit from doing this alone. It’s a really easy way to grow your bank and start the ball rolling on long term matched betting profits.
2. Horse Racing Refunds
This is a major area for long term matched betting profits. Bookies have tons of refund offers associated with horse racing. Expect to see a lot of offers of a free bet if your horse comes second.
Profit Accumulator does the hard work for you on this one. They have a tool that gives you all of the close matches (i.e. where the back and lay bet odds are close). I tend to look for close matches and or place my bet on the favourite, or second favourite for the race. (Although the latter strategy is fairly arbitrary, so it doesn’t really matter how you decide to do it as long as your approach is sensible.)
When I first started doing horse racing refunds, I was dubious. When I completed sign up offers, the free bet was guaranteed whereas refunds are only given within certain conditions, but the system is actually a lot more fruitful than it sounds. The more you do, the more you are likely to get free bets.
On Friday and Saturday, I go through as many offers as I can do in half an hour, and check later to see what comes in. The more of these you do, the more chance you have to profit. I find that I usually get one to two free bets per session, raking about £20 profit as an average for 30 minutes work. Not a bad hourly rate to get those long term matched betting profits up!
3. 2 Up Offers
2 Up Offers are associated with football (only certain leagues qualify). If the team you’ve place a bet on goes two goals ahead of the other team, the bookie will pay out there and then. When you’ve had an early payout on your back bet, you have a couple of options for your lay bet; you can cash that out early too.
When you decide to cash out is key; cash out straightaway while your team are winning and your profit will be a few pounds. If your team’s opponent come back into play, you can stand to make a lot more (which is where I usually make a decent profit per match). If the match ends in a draw, or the opposing team win, you will win both bets and cash in big time.
I usually err on the side of caution and cash out before the match ends. Therefore I make between £5 and £30 on these types of offers. However, I made £200 by letting one match play out.
4. Profit Accumulator Weekly Email
Profit Accumulator members get a weekly email on Saturdays detailing all of the offers for the weekend ahead. It comprises offers for free bets on sporting events over the weekend, as well as decent ongoing offers that are relevant to the day’s events. I expect to make between £30 to £50 profit from the hour that it takes me to complete theses offers. This hour can be done before you even get out of bed on Saturday and you can just check back later to record your profits.
So that’s my strategy to make long term matched betting profits.
There is an absolute goldmine of offers out there to help you achieve your long term matched betting goals, so what are you waiting for?
