Matched Betting could be the best thing to ever happen to you.  I'm being serious, matched betting is great fun and very profitable and there are loads of risk-free profits to be made each month just by placing some bets at bookies and laying them off at betting exchanges.

Even if you know nothing about betting, you can easily make £500 per month!

This matched betting guide covers all you need to know about how it works.

Bookmaker's Free Bets

There is such competition amongst bookies that they are always coming up with offers to try and win your custom.  You must have seen countless adverts telling you how you can bet x, get x free.  Thanks to betting exchanges, we are now able to take advantage of bookmakers and beat them at their own game and best of all, it's really easy to do!

Back and Lay

We place a back bet at the bookmaker and then we place a bet at a betting exchange against the same event happening.  In short, if we back Man City to win at the bookmaker, we are able to have a bet on the exchange which says that Man City will not win.

So if Paddy Power were offering Bet £20 and get a £10 free bet, then we would do a £20 back and lay and we will break even on that.

You would then have a £10 free bet to place and because it's free money, you can't possibly lose, it's all explained later on for you.

What You Can Make

The more effort you put it, the more profits you will make.  It's as simple as that.

You can get started with matched betting with just £60 as some bookies allow you to deposit & bet £5 and then give you a £20 free bet.  After you've completed it you'll have turned your £60 into £75 and then it's onto the next offer.

You can make over £1,000 straight away just by joining all the bookmakers that have great free bet welcome offers.  After making your first grand, you can then use that money to take advantage of the ongoing free bets that bookies dish out.

It is perfectly reasonable to make over £1,000 from matched betting if you put several hours per week into it.  If you don't quite have that time to commit, then you can make over £500 per month from 20 to 30 minutes per day from completing the easiest matched betting offers.
