Welcome to your very own, personalised matched betting plan! Thank you for completing our quiz, using your results we have split your plan into three main sections: Issues, Team and Features. Make sure to save this URL so that you can access this plan when you leave it!
Issue will address your biggest issue and also give you an idea of how to deal with common issues that crop up.
Team is where we assign you a team which gives you an idea of how many hours you should be doing, as well as showing you how a couple of fellow team profiteers make regular profit.
Features will show you a few things that are guaranteed to help you smash the bookies!
Transitioning from the welcome offers to reloads can be a daunting task, especially when you feel as if you’re missing out on reloads while half way through the welcome offers.
Or maybe you’re not sure how people make profit after the welcome offers, either way, there’s no need to worry as the reloads are 100% profitable and they can wait until you are done with the welcome offers.
The easiest reloads to transition to are similar to welcome offers, such as bet x get y offers and risk free bets. As you become more confident you may want to move onto more advanced offers such as 2up, 2clear, accas and low risk casino.
However it’s important that you go at your own pace and start off slow. All of these offers have their own video and text guides which we will leave links to, but for now we recommend watching our “How To Profit After The Welcome Offers” video by clicking below which gives a great view of matched betting life after the welcome offers.
Mistakes When Backing and Laying
It’s inevitable, whether it’s on your first offer or your thousandth, mistakes can happen. Bookmakers and exchanges can be very confusing to navigate at times and it is natural to get mixed up now and then.
When you start out, you should always be triple checking that you’re backing and laying the same event, making sure you back before you lay and checking that there is enough liquidity in the exchange.
If you don’t feel confident backing and laying your bets, don’t lose hope! Matched betting is a difficult thing to wrap your head around but it is well worth the effort when you consider how much you can make in a relatively short amount of time.
Go back and make sure you’ve watched our video guides which you can see by clicking the button below. They explain step by step how to complete the simplest welcome offers. If you still feel unsure, then watch our walkthrough of the Coral offer here where we show you slowly and step by step how to complete the offer.
Finding Close Odds
The closer odds the higher the profit. Finding them by manually checking the websites can be frustrating and time consuming, not to mention it’s difficult to find them close enough to maximise profit, especially when they are constantly changing.
For this reason, most matched betters use an oddsmatcher which uses sophisticated software to calculate the closest odds on the market and provides filters to allow searching for specific bookies, exchanges or sports.
For £1, you can get a 7 day trial of Oddsmonkey premium, their website includes a daily offer calendar, a huge forum of matched betters and most importantly, a fast and accurate oddsmatcher.
The oddsmatcher can be used to find close matches for qualifying bets and free bets, saving you time and maximising profit! Learn more about how the oddsmatcher works here.
After 7 days, it is £17.99 per month, however with the time saved using the oddsmatcher, people find it much easier to complete more offers and the subscription pays for itself in no time, check out this offer by clicking the button below.
Lack of Funds
This is probably the most common problem in the matched betting community, not having enough money to complete all the offers that you want to.
Knowing that you’re missing out on potential or guaranteed profit is a sickening thought and can cause a lot of frustration. However, it’s important not to get too bogged down in doing every offer under the sun and spending time sitting at your laptop when there’s nothing more to do.
One way of using your money more efficiently is by doing something called combining liability. This is done by by choosing different winners for the same event and allows you to place you numerous lay bets, whilst significantly reducing your liability needed for these bets.
This is fully explained, by giving specific examples, in our combining liability guide which you can read by clicking the button below.
Matched betting can be quite time consuming, especially at the beginning when you’re still looking manually for close matches and triple checking everything before you back and lay. This can put some people off, especially those who work full time and are looking to make some extra cash with the limited spare time that they have.
Like any skill in life, practice makes perfect. As you complete more offers and become more confident, completing offers will be a lot lot faster than when you started out. Many of our members are parents who work full time and yet they still find a way to fit offers in.
Instead of trawling through bookies to check for offers, we recommend checking “Tom’s lunchtime Profits” which is posted every weekday at 12pm on our matched betting blog which you can find a link to at the end of your plan. This post contains quick, easy daily offers to do in the space of an hour or less.
If you’re able to dedicate more hours but just don’t know where to find the offers, read our Oddsmonkey Time Saving Tips guide by clicking the button below. Alternatively, you can try and get some ideas of how to manage your time by reading the earnings section where we will give examples of exactly what matched betters do in a typical week.
Gubbing is the term used for being restricted or banned from a bookie’s promotions. It happens to us all eventually, so there is no need to worry about it too much. Everyone has a different opinion on how to avoid them but the reality is, no-one knows for sure.
See it as a badge of honour, mourn the loss on the FB group gubbing thread and move on. There's always another bookie and a gubbed account can still bring you a lot of profit so it isn’t the end of the road.
If you want to err on the side of caution and try ways to avoid gubbings then read our guides on mug betting here and if you want to know how to still make a profit on gubbed accounts, read our guide on the subject by clicking the button below.

Up to £75 a week: To make this amount we would recommend spending about 5 hours a week on offers. Keep in mind, this is just an estimate. The amount of time needed also depends on your bank and your experience.
Having more money available means you can do more offers and with experience comes speed. That being said, if you stick to this plan then there’s no reason that you can’t be making £75 every week especially as you build up your bank and improve your knowledge.
We have two very important sources of information if you want to achieve this! Firstly is our Team Regular page which gives 5 super profitable ways to reach your target such as football offers and price boosts, you can view it below.
Secondly we thought it would be helpful for members to have a real life example to follow, so we created the “life in the week of” series. Check out how Team Profit's very own Chris Harvey makes profit every week here!
£75 - £250 a week: To make this amount we would recommend spending about 5-15 hours a week on offers. Keep in mind, this is just an estimate. The amount of time needed also depends on your bank and your experience.

£250+ a week: To make this amount we would recommend spending about 15+ hours a week on offers. Keep in mind, this is just an estimate. The amount of time needed also depends on your bank and your experience.
WARNING! To make this much, you will need a bank of at least £2000 to start with and have a bit of experience behind you, if not then perhaps start with a smaller target as it can be disheartening if you expect too much too soon.

Secondly we thought it would be helpful for members to have a real life example to follow, so we created the “life in the week of” series. We think Chris Harrison’s £750 a week routine, which you can read here, would be most helpful to you. Just keep in mind that you would only have to do a third of the amount of offers that her does to meet your minimum target, so don’t get overwhelmed!
