 1. What Is Betfair Sports Trading?

In simple terms, Sports Trading is the matching of your own bets through the medium of a betting exchange in order to secure a guaranteed profit no matter the outcome of the event you are trading.

Sports Traders are typically more concerned with how the odds change before or during an event rather than what the actual outcome of the market they’re trading on is.

Perhaps an easy example to visualise is one on football.

Let’s say that before their match has started you have backed Man Utd to win the game on the Betfair Exchange at odds of 1.80 (or 4/5 in fractional odds).

Fast forward to 60 minutes into the game and Man Utd are leading 1-0 and their decimal odds to win are now 1.20 (1/5 in fractional odds).

Well, instead of waiting for the match to finish up and therefore awaiting the outcome of your back bet on a Man Utd win to come true you could lay Man Utd to win at odds of 1.20 (1/5) – that is to say, that you are now betting that Man Utd won’t win the match.

The difference in odds of 1.80 (4/5) and the drop to 1.20 (1/5) due to Man Utd now being 1-0 up provides the opportunity to profit from the game by hedging our bets, no matter whether Man Utd go on to win, draw or lose the match.

You would be taking a smaller profit than if you were to wait for the match to end and Man Utd did actually win, however we all know football isn’t always as simple as that. By trading out we are eliminating any risk we had with the stake placed on Man Utd to win.

So, if the game finished and Man Utd actually ended up drawing 1-1 (as so often happened in the 2016/17 season) then you wouldn’t be concerned as you’d have already secured your profit.

This is the beauty of trading.[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]

3. Why Does Sports Trading Use Decimal Odds?

Quite simply, for two reasons:

  • They’re easier to read
  • Decimal odds are more exact

4. Backing and Laying

Just as you would expect if you were betting with a bookmaker, when you back on a betting exchange you are saying that a particular outcome will occur.

However, with a betting exchange you also have the choice to say that an outcome will not occur – this is called laying.[/vc_column_text][vc_message]Backing = we are saying the outcome will occur.

Laying =  we are saying the outcome will not occur.[/vc_message][vc_column_text][/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space][vc_column_text]

5. Hedging/Greening Up

When hedging we are closing our position and equalising our profit or loss on the outcome we have traded on. This means no matter what the outcome is of the event we will stand to profit or lose the exact same figure that we closed the trade at.

Greening up is when you are hedging up a profitable trade as we are ‘in the green’.[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text][/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space][vc_column_text]

6. The Two Main Styles of Trading – Scalping and Swing Trading

Scalping is a method of trading whereby the trader looks to get in and out of the market very quickly over a number of times.

  • Scalpers are generally only looking to trade one tick at a time so are therefore more concerned with small but consistent profitable trades. (A tick being one increment in the odds – for example, 2.12 to 2.14 – in this case a scalper would look to lay at 2.12 and back at 2.14 to hedge up a one tick profit).

Swing Trading is when a trader looks to take advantage of a bigger movement of the odds in the market and will likely be in active in the market for longer periods of time than a scalper.

  • Swing traders look to secure bigger profits but are likely to be less active in the markets than a scalper. (For example, laying at 2.12 and backing at 2.48 to hedge up a 17 tick profit).
[/vc_column_text][vc_message]

The following is an example of a swing trade by Mug’s Game (also known as Steve Howe).

The point of this video is two fold:

  • It will show new traders that not every swing trade is £100-£200+ (this is a level that only the professionals who are at the top of their game can achieve)
  • It keeps your initial expectations realistic

7. What Is a Scratch Trade?

Scratching a trade is when:

  • You cancel a trade by stopping your order from becoming active in the market, or
  • By entering and exiting at the exact same odds for no profit or loss
[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text][/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space][vc_column_text]

8. The Difference Between Sports Trading and Sports Betting

In sports betting there is only one part to the process. You back a selection and hope that it wins the event.

In sports trading there are two parts to the process. In the first part, you either back or lay a selection and then hope the odds go in your favour for a period of time where, in the second part of the process, you hedge up your trade so that you will profit no matter what the outcome of the event is.

So in sports trading, you are just looking to profit from the movement of the odds in an event whereas with sports betting you are looking to profit with your selection actually winning the event.

If you were backing Over 2.5 Goals in a game you’d have to wait until there were at least 3 goals for your bet to win or for the game to finish with 2 or less goals for your bet to lose.

With trading, if you backed Over 2.5 goals at the start of the game and there was a goal within the first 10 minutes the possibility of the game finishing with Over 2.5 goals would become much greater and thus the odds would drop to reflect this probability.

For example, you back Over 2.5 goals at odds of 2.12 before the match begins. There is an early goal in the 9th minute. The odds settle at 1.42, you now have the opportunity to LAY (that is to say it WON’T happen) Over 2.5 goals at the lower odds and guarantee a profit no matter what the outcome is – whether there’s 3 goals or less.[/vc_column_text][vc_cta h2=”Interested in Trading Football?” txt_align=”center” color=”white” add_button=”bottom” btn_title=”Find Out More” btn_style=”3d” btn_color=”warning” btn_size=”lg” btn_align=”center” btn_i_align=”right” btn_i_icon_fontawesome=”fa fa-futbol-o” btn_add_icon=”true” css=”.vc_custom_1501876266456{border-top-width: 3px !important;border-right-width: 3px !important;border-bottom-width: 3px !important;border-left-width: 3px !important;background-color: #81d742 !important;border-left-color: #cecece !important;border-left-style: outset !important;border-right-color: #cecece !important;border-right-style: outset !important;border-top-color: #cecece !important;border-top-style: outset !important;border-bottom-color: #cecece !important;border-bottom-style: outset !important;border-radius: 3px !important;}” btn_link=”url:http%3A%2F%2Fwww.sportstradingtools.co.uk%2Fgoal-profits%2F||target:%20_blank|”]Then check out Goal Profits, our recommended service for Betfair football trading newcomers.[/vc_cta][vc_column_text][/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space][vc_column_text]

9. The Difference Between Sports Trading and Matched Betting

Many people move into sports trading having had a matched betting background, I did, and I think it’s quite a good introduction as you learn everything about how exchanges work and the concept of obtaining value long-term.

Here are 4 main differences:[/vc_column_text][vc_table vc_table_theme=”classic_blue”][b;align-center]Sports%20Trading,[b;align-center]Matched%20Betting|[align-left]Doesn%E2%80%99t%20use%20bookmakers.%20Uses%20a%20betting%20exchange,Uses%20bookmakers%20as%20it%20uses%20their%20regular%20promotions%20and%20offers%20in%20order%20to%20extract%20long-term%20value|[align-left]In%20their%20first%20year%2C%20most%20people%20consistently%20lose%20at%20trading,Matched%20betting%20guarantees%20users%20profits%20right%20from%20the%20start|[align-left]Psychologically%2C%20sports%20trading%20can%20be%20a%20tough%20nut%20to%20crack.%20There%20are%20many%20mental%20hurdles%20a%20trader%20needs%20to%20get%20over%20before%20they%20start%20to%20make%20consistent%20profits,Psychologically%2C%20matched%20betting%20is%20much%20easier%20to%20handle%20as%20it%20is%20a%20basic%20process%20of%20following%20step%20by%20step%20instructions%20provided%20by%20service%20providers%20and%20believing%20in%20the%20maths|[align-left]Relies%20on%20an%20ability%20to%20read%20a%20market%E2%80%99s%20movement%20and%2For%20to%20have%20a%20statistical%20edge%20that%20implies%20there%20is%20value%20to%20be%20taken%20in%20the%20proposed%20trade%20,Relies%20on%20just%20following%20and%20repeating%20standard%20processes%20through%20time%20and%20again[/vc_table][vc_column_text]And 3 main similarities:

  • Both are concerned with taking value
  • Both involve investing in resources or software for learning and profiting purposes
  • Tracking results is a key part of the process

I do not want to put anyone off attempting to learn sports trading, but it is important people are aware of how the journey from beginner trader to pro trader can be a difficult one.

Some of the skills and concepts learned in matched betting are good entry points to sports trading and, because of this, I feel it would be beneficial that complete newcomers to either of these went with the matched betting option first.

There’s also the major plus that you will not lose money while you’re learning and could even put the money earned from matched betting into learning sports trading.[/vc_column_text][vc_btn title=”Find Out More About Matched Betting” style=”3d” color=”peacoc” size=”lg” align=”center” i_align=”right” i_icon_fontawesome=”fa fa-book” add_icon=”true” link=”url:http%3A%2F%2Fwww.sportstradingtools.co.uk%2Fbeginners-guide-matched-betting%2F||target:%20_blank|”][vc_empty_space][vc_column_text]

[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space][vc_column_text]

10. How Does a Betting Exchange Work and Which One Should I Use?

A betting exchange is a platform that allows peer-to-peer betting. This means that when you place a back or a lay bet then there will be someone on the other side accepting the odds you’ve placed your bet at.

For example, if you back a horse that you think will win a race then there is someone on the other side who has matched your bet with a lay bet to say that the horse you’ve chosen won’t win the race.

Betting Exchanges are popular for the following important reasons:

  • As it’s peer-to-peer betting the odds are usually much better than bookmakers
  • Bookmakers have a reputation for restricting or banning winning punters – they don’t want people straight up betting and winning money. With a betting exchange, you will never get banned for winning

Betfair is the most popular betting exchange as it has the biggest user base, and most importantly, the most money being traded.[/vc_column_text][vc_table vc_table_theme=”classic_blue”][b;align-center;i]Aspect%2FBetting%20Exchange,[b;align-center]Betfair,[align-center]Betdaq,[align-center]Smarkets,[align-center]Matchbook|[align-left;b]Year%20Formed,2000,2000,2008,2004|[align-left;b]Software%20Available%20For,Geeks%20Toy%2C%0ABet%20Angel%2C%0ABetTrader%2C%0AGruss%2C%20Cymatic.%20Pretty%20much%20every%20software%20on%20the%20market,Geeks%20Toy%2C%0ABet%20Angel%2C%20Gruss,None,Geeks%20Toy|[align-left;b]Main%20Positive%2FUnique%20Selling%20Point,Most%20liquid%20markets%20%E2%80%93%20has%20the%20most%20money%20flowing%20through%20them,Is%20the%20second%20biggest%20Betting%20Exchange%20in%20the%20UK.%0ADoes%20not%20have%20a%20premium%20charge%20for%20winning%20members,2%25%20Commission%20and%20has%20no%20Premium%20Charge.%20Often%20used%20by%20matched%20bettors%20due%20to%20the%20extra%20savings%20made%20in%20commission%20throughout%20the%20year,Lower%20commission%20than%20its%20rivals|[b]Main%20Negative,There%20is%20a%20level%20called%20Premium%20Charge%20in%20which%20Betfair%20take%2060%25%20of%20all%20winnings%20from%20highly%20successful%20players.%20This%20gave%20Betfair%20the%20nickname%20of%20’BetUnfair’,With%205%25%20commission%20and%20no%20USP%20over%20its%20rivals%20it%E2%80%99s%20easy%20to%20see%20why%20users%20are%20flooding%20to%20its%20competitors%20instead,Not%20associated%20with%20any%20software%20which%20allows%20you%20to%20trade%20it.%20However%2C%20can%20be%20used%20for%20straight%20backs%20and%20straight%20lays%20if%20you%20wish.%20%0A%0AThe%20user%20interface%20is%20not%20quite%20as%20intuitive%20as%20Betfair,Their%20commission%20structure%20is%20not%20as%20easy%20to%20get%20your%20head%20ahead%20as%20it%20is%20taken%20from%20both%20winning%20and%20losing%20bets|[b]Commission%20Structure,5%25%20on%20winning%20bets%20(up%20to%2060%25%20for%20highly%20successful%20players%20making%20profits%20of%20over%20%C2%A3250%2C000%20%E2%80%93%20not%20something%20you%20need%20to%20worry%20about%20unless%20you%E2%80%99re%20%20a%20professional%20sports%20trader),5%25%20on%20winning%20bets,2%25%20on%20winning%20bets,1.15%25%20on%20both%20winning%20and%20losing%20bets[/vc_table][vc_column_text][/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space][vc_column_text]

11. Football Trading Backing and Laying Example

You back Chelsea to win their match vs Arsenal – you will win your back bet if Chelsea win the match.

Alternatively, you could lay Chelsea to win their match vs Arsenal – now you will only win your bet if Chelsea do not win the match, ie if they draw or Arsenal win the match.

12. Horse Racing Backing and Laying Example (Pre-Race)

Say you back Thistlecrack to win the race – you will only win your back bet if Thistlecrack comes first in the race.

If you lay Thistlecrack to win the race then you will win your bet if Thistlecrack does not win the race – no matter if he places 2nd, 3rd, 4th,  5th (you get the idea) or last.[/vc_column_text][vc_message]On a betting exchange the current back price will always be lower than the current lay price – otherwise this would create endless opportunities for arbitrage.[/vc_message][vc_column_text][/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space][vc_column_text]

13. How Do Odds Move on a Betting Exchange?

There is no simple answer to this one as it really depends on the sport and the market. We’ll use the two examples of football and horse racing again though.

For football, let’s take the Over 2.5 market this time. Whilst the game is in-play the movement of the odds will be dependent on whether goals are scored or not.

If there is not a goal then the back price of Over 2.5 goals will get bigger throughout the match as the probability of Over 2.5 goals occurring becomes less and less as the time wears on. This is known as Time Decay.

If there is a goal then the odds (depending on the timing of the goal) will plummet dramatically. For example, if the back odds before the match on Over 2.5 goals were 2.00 (Evens, 1/1) and there was a goal in the first 15 minutes of the game then the back price on Over 2.5 goals may plummet to somewhere around 1.40 (2/5).

Of course, the movement of odds in horse racing is wildly different. If we look at the pre-race trading of horse racing (one of the most popular markets for beginners) then the movement of odds is dependent on a lot of factors, but here are a few examples:

  • Which horse/s is receiving money or continually being backed
  • How horses are behaving (for example, if one is playing up or sweating heavily then the odds are more likely to drift)
  • What the commentators/pundits are saying

14. Which Sport, Strategy or Market is Best for Me to Start With?

That’s something you will have to find out for yourself. However, three of the most popular sports people end up starting with are:

  • Horse racing, mainly pre-race
  • Football, mainly pre-match and in-play
  • Tennis, mainly pre-match and in-play
  • Cricket, mainly pre-match and in-play

There are lots of other sports and markets anyone can trade on Betfair but these are 4 of the most prominent for a number of reasons, including:

  • They are popular sports and, as such, people know a lot about them and there is a lot of money traded in the markets
  • There are traders out there who specialise in them and are willing to teach others, whether that be through online platforms, e-books or group courses

In the first 9 months of my journey I wasted a tonne of money, effort and time finding out which products, learning resources and services suited my trading style. So, when setting up Sports Trading Tools I created an email course in the hope it would cut out this hassle for all aspiring sports traders.[/vc_column_text][vc_cta h2=”Sports Trading: 8 Steps To Discovering Your Edge” txt_align=”center” color=”white” css=”.vc_custom_1501877292775{border-top-width: 5px !important;border-right-width: 5px !important;border-bottom-width: 5px !important;border-left-width: 5px !important;background-color: #81d742 !important;border-left-color: #cecece !important;border-left-style: outset !important;border-right-color: #cecece !important;border-right-style: outset !important;border-top-color: #cecece !important;border-top-style: outset !important;border-bottom-color: #cecece !important;border-bottom-style: outset !important;border-radius: 5px !important;}”]In the free Sports Trading Tools email course I’ll take you on the 8 Steps to Discovering Your Betfair Trading Edge.

16. Trading Football Pre-Match and In-Play

As one of the biggest sports in the world it’s no surprise that football is one of the most popular sports to trade. Whereas many people who trade pre-race horse racing may not have a deep knowledge about the sport, many people who trade football are knowledgeable about it.

Football can be traded both Pre-Match and In-Play and is popular for the following reasons:

  • It attracts a lot of attention and therefore a large amounts of money fill the markets. Big matches which are played live on TV can often see anywhere between £2 million to £10 million traded on them. Major international tournaments can have double this amount traded on them
  • People understand the sport and the teams they are trading
  • There are hundreds of football matches that are tradeable on Betfair every week

When it comes to learning football trading it’s undoubted that the place to begin is GoalProfits.com (explained more about below). Not only is this the best place to start out, but it’s also the best place to learn every aspect of football trading and will certainly help those who stick with it in their efforts to become professional traders.[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text][/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space][vc_column_text]

18. Why Trading Horse Racing Pre-Race Is Where Most Traders Start Out

One of the most popular sports to trade is Horse Racing. The most common way to trade it is pre-race due to the large movement of odds that can occur, there are also traders who specialise on trading it in-play too.

There is less risk to trading horse racing pre-race as there are less dramatic occurrences that can happen, ie you could back a horse in-play and it could fall, meaning you have no chance of recovery. With pre-race, you don’t have a risk like this.

Horse Racing is popular for the following three reasons:

1. Multiple Opportunities to Profit Daily

With racing on 363 days out of the 365 days in a year and with an average of 3 meetings per day you can see the appeal. There are also plenty of evening races throughout the year meaning those who work during the day still have an opportunity to practice their skills.

2. Volume and Liquidity

With each race averaging between £400k-700k that means professional traders can often get large stakes in and out of the markets multiple times – creating large profits.

3. It’s Often Considered the True Art of Sports Trading

Trading Pre-Race Horse Racing is like trading no other sport because you can trade it purely by reading what is happening in the markets and why – whereas other sports rely heavily on statistical analysis. Essentially, it teaches you a lot of the fundamental skills that come with being a profitable trader.[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text][/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space][vc_column_text]

19. Betfair Trading Software and Why You Need It

Sports trading software gives traders significant benefits:

  • It automates complex calculations so traders don’t have to
  • It allows a trader to see the full market depth through a ladder interface
  • It visualises important information that can be used to make trading decisions through the use of charts and graphs

If you are not using trading software then you will be at a serious advantage against everyone you are competing against in the market. A trader cannot trade using the Betfair website as it does not display enough information and would mean you must calculate your own figures when hedging. This is simply not realistic and will lose you vital seconds.

Using software is an edge within itself.

There are two main market leaders:

Geeks Toy

A fully customisable software that’s the cheapest on the market. This is often popular with trader’s just starting out.

Bet Angel

A superb software that has all the bells and whistles a trader could want. This software is more for those who have reached a level of consistent profitability and want to enhance their skills.

Read the full review.[/vc_column_text][vc_single_image image=”1469″ img_size=”medium” add_caption=”yes” alignment=”center” style=”vc_box_border” onclick=”link_image”][vc_column_text]For newcomers, I recommend Geeks Toy as it does everything a new trader needs and is the lowest price amongst its competitors.

However, neither of these two market leaders work on Apple Mac straight off the bat. If you’re looking for a software that works seamlessly on Mac then you’re best off looking at BetTrader.

20. Betfair Software Ladder Display Explained

This is the most popular way to visualise the information available in a Betfair market. The ladder is a vertical display of odds and lets a trader see the amount of money available to be matched at the odds displayed, whilst also seeing how much has already been matched at each of the odds. This is highly valuable information.

The video below from Caan Berry explains more about the the Ladder Display on his Geeks Toy Software:[/vc_column_text][vc_video link=”https://youtu.be/zGrIUe69TQs” el_width=”70″ align=”center”][vc_column_text][/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space][vc_column_text]

21. Setting Expectations

Do not go into the world of trading thinking it will be easy and within a year you will make a vast amount of money. This is a key fault of any beginner and one, I’ll admit, I made too.

If there is one key thing you do when you’re starting out trading it should be to remind yourself of is this:

At first, focus on not losing money rather than making money.

[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text][/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space][vc_column_text]

22. How Long Does It Take to Learn Sports Trading?

The learning of sports trading is not the most difficult part for many people. It’s the controlling of the mental side of the game that is the major hurdle for most. A pro trader could give you a tried and tested strategy that has shown to be profitable time and time again, but if you’re unable to control your emotions when performing the trade then that will be the major downfall that ensures you consistency lose – at least for a period of time until you kick out the bad habits.

It often takes traders at least a year to master the art of trading – that is to learn how to trade and how to approach the mental side of it.

 23. 5 Top Tips to Give Yourself the Best Chance to Succeed

  1. When starting out and learning do not have any financial pressure or need to make money from sports trading. You will more than likely lose consistently for the first year
  2. It sounds counter-intuitive, but at the start you should focus on not losing money rather than making money
  3. Don’t trade when your emotions or mental state isn’t right. Ie, don’t trade when you’re upset, sad, angry, tired or drunk
  4. Start off with small trading banks, you will most likely lose all of the first two or three
  5. Invest in learning resources – it will save you a lot of time, money and hassle by following the paths of people who are already successful at it (you can find our Overview Guide of all the sports trading tools listed on this site, here)

To help newcomers to overcome some of the hurdles that can be involved when learning Sports Trading i’ve created an 8 Step email course that will cut out all of the beginner hassle for you.

Why Has Sports Trading Become So Popular?

The past number of years has seen a rise in the number of people learning the art of Sports Trading. This is down to a number of factors:

  • People are becoming smarter about the methods they use to try and make profits from sports betting
  • With the popularity of matched betting exploding in recent times there have been many people who have the background knowledge about how Betting Exchanges work and have more nous compared to the average bettor when it comes to finding value in sports markets. They then wish to make the leap from matched betting to sports trading
  • Bookmakers have always been a law unto themselves, but online they can really do what they want – if you’re a winning punter then you’ll eventually be restricted as bookies don’t want winners. On betting exchanges it’s highly unlikely you’ll ever get restricted.
  • Technology and the rise in vendors who offer products and services to the market means that sports trading is more accessible than ever

Can’t I Just Use My Favourite Bookmaker’s Cash Out Feature?

You could, but there are three major disadvantages to this:

  • You have originally backed at poorer odds with the bookmaker than what you would have got at the exchange, putting you at a disadvantage from the get go
  • The bookmaker will offer you a cash out value for less than what you would get on the betting exchange for the same bet. This means you will make less profit long term
  • If you do end up actually consistently winning – they will restrict your account as they don’t like winning punters

Remember, the bookmaker is always looking to profit from their punters through offering them poor value at every turn – pretty much everything on a bookmaker’s website is designed to take profit from you.  There are only three main ways to ensure sure you have a profitable edge in the gambling industry long term:

The Overround (Book Percentage)

If you’re a regular punter you may not know the following bit of information – I didn’t until I started matched betting.

The prices on betting exchanges are better value in comparison to bookmakers because the overround is always close to 100%.

With bookmakers, the overround is typically anywhere between 115-130%.They do this by offering poorer value odds to punters. The extra percentage over 100% is called their ‘margin’.

In overly simplified terms – the bookmakers are giving themselves 130% probability that any outcome in an event will occur compared to the betting exchange which says that there is only 100% chance that any outcome will occur – which is obviously the true % chance.

Ticks

One tick is the minimum movement that a price or odds can make, for example from 1.80 to 1.81 or from 6.2 to 6.4.

The value of a tick differs by increment of the odds.[/vc_toggle][vc_table vc_table_theme=”classic_blue”][b;align-center]Odds%20From,[b;align-center]Odds%20To,[b;align-center]Tick%20Increment|[align-center]1.01,[align-center]2.00,[align-center]0.01|[align-center]2.00,[align-center]3.00,[align-center]0.02|[align-center]3.00,[align-center]4.00,[align-center]0.05|[align-center]4.00,[align-center]6.00,[align-center]0.1|[align-center]6.00,[align-center]10.00,[align-center]0.2|[align-center]10.00,[align-center]20.00,[align-center]0.5|[align-center]20.00,[align-center]30.00,[align-center]1|[align-center]30.00,[align-center]50.00,[align-center]2|[align-center]50.00,[align-center]100.00,[align-center]5|[align-center]100.00,[align-center]1000.00,[align-center]10[/vc_table][vc_column_text]

Starting Bank Size and Using Practice Mode

How much you put in to start with will be down to you. However, I want to offer some top tips from my own experience and from hearing about other people’s experiences:

  • Only use practice mode as method to get to grips with and familiarise yourself with the software
  • If using practice mode then don’t use it for more than a couple of days. There is a major difference in how a trader reacts during practice and how well they perform using real money – even if it is just £2
  • Start off with a small trading bank (even as small as £100) and use £2 stakes to begin with. Is it pretty much a guarantee that you will blow your first few trading banks
  • When using a second trading bank, again go small. Maybe £200 this time and raise the stakes to £4 a go

Extra Info: How Did Sports Trading Come About?

With the progression of the internet in the late 1990’s someone had the smart idea of peer-to-peer betting through the medium of a betting exchange. There were lots of advantages to this medium:

  • Punters could get larger amounts of money on as the liability lay with the whole market and not with a single bookmaker
  • Odds were usually higher meaning that punters got better value for money
  • For a while there was the ability to arbitrage between sports bookmaker’s prices and those offered on the exchange if the back price at the bookmaker was higher than the lay price was on Betfair

Sports Trading was popularised from 2000 onwards after the inception of a betting exchange called Flutter, which was later acquired by the world’s current leading betting exchange Betfair.[/vc_column_text][/vc_tta_section][/vc_tta_accordion][/vc_column][/vc_row]

EV Maximiser

For the advanced matched bettors who wish to do their own Estimated Value (EV) calculations on invitation-only offers they have received from bookmakers or offers they have discovered themselves. This software uses the Law of Large Numbers to calculate the mathematical edge for each offer and:

  • Advise on the best stake size to use
  • Calculates the % chance of busting out
  • Estimates the hourly rate of return of an offer

Full and comprehensive training, as with every other product and software listed in this review, is included.[/vc_column_text][vc_single_image image=”2014″ img_size=”full” add_caption=”yes” alignment=”center” style=”vc_box_border” onclick=”link_image” css=”.vc_custom_1500841900617{border-radius: 2px !important;}”][vc_column_text]

Betfair Renegade

Admittedly, this pales in comparison to Mike’s other, finer products. It relies on the Betfair Exchange only and is based on the premise of the Betfair Renegade software finding value bets within Betfair football markets. I have heard a few people on the Profit Maximiser Facebook group talking about how they have used it to profit but personally it is not a product I use much.

Note: This product cannot be bought separately.[/vc_column_text][vc_single_image image=”2015″ img_size=”full” add_caption=”yes” alignment=”center” style=”vc_box_border” onclick=”link_image” css=”.vc_custom_1500842119178{border-radius: 2px !important;}”][vc_column_text]

Bookie Blowout

Bookie Blowout is another great product from Mike. It finds back value in the early bookmaker prices on horses for the next day’s racing.  The idea is that you back the selections the night before and then lay them on a Betting Exchange the next day and make a profit – it is a form of arbitrage betting. There are a couple of slight issues with this product though:

  • You must be very quick to get your bets on as soon as you are emailed the selection
  • It is likely to court attention from bookmakers who realise you are taking value prices
[/vc_column_text][vc_single_image image=”2016″ img_size=”full” add_caption=”yes” alignment=”center” style=”vc_box_border” onclick=”link_image” css=”.vc_custom_1500842394046{border-radius: 2px !important;}”][vc_single_image image=”2017″ img_size=”full” add_caption=”yes” alignment=”center” style=”vc_box_border” onclick=”link_image” css=”.vc_custom_1500842425656{border-radius: 2px !important;}”][vc_column_text]

Betfair Sniper (Trading Strategy)

One of Mike’s products that I feel falls just short. I cannot give away the strategy behind this idea but it is another that relies solely on the Betfair Exchange and does not need bookmaker accounts. It is more of trading strategy and one that those who are familiar with Sports Trading may wish to implement, but frankly I’d rather just concentrate on my own trading instead of looking out for the certain race betting conditions that this strategy focuses on. Like Betfair Renegade, this product cannot be bought on its own.

Note: This product cannot be bought separately.

Betfair 1% Club (Trading Strategy)

Another trading strategy so this only relies on having a Betfair account. I can’t give away too many details about it for obvious reasons, but it is essentially a pre-match football scalping strategy. If you’re into sports trading then I would imagine you would already be aware of this strategy – if you’re not then who knows, it may be your first foray into sports trading. Instructions in the PDF are clear and well explained with numerous examples to boot.

Note: This product cannot be bought separately.

So, there you go, that’s a comprehensive list of everything included in Mike Cruickshank’s Betting Mastermind. Whilst the 2 trading strategies aren’t stellar and are something sports traders amongst you probably already know there is absolutely tonnes of value to be had in the 8 matched betting tools. By signing up to Betting Mastermind you will be able to exploit these avenues of Matched Betting for a lifetime and they will provide one hell of a return on your initial outlay.[/vc_column_text][vc_message]So, what about the training, price, yearly savings and the refund guarantee?[/vc_message][vc_column_text]

Training and Customer Service

Training for every product is exceptional as it is thoroughly comprehensive and is presented in both written and video form.

Mike takes you through every aspect of each tool to explain how and why they work so well, how to use them and has included plenty of step-by-step video examples of him using them to make his own profit. There is also an extensive FAQ sections provided with each tool.

If you ever have any other questions Mike is always just an email away or you can do what I preferred to do and just ask a question in the Facebook group as this is a community that is only too willing to help newcomers. Mike and his customer service team have us all well covered.[/vc_column_text][vc_btn title=”Visit BettingMastermind.co.uk” style=”3d” color=”warning” size=”lg” align=”center” i_align=”right” i_icon_fontawesome=”fa fa-mouse-pointer” add_icon=”true” link=”url:http%3A%2F%2Fwww.sportstradingtools.co.uk%2Fprojectprosperity||target:%20_blank|rel:nofollow”][vc_column_text]

Pricing

The price of Betting Mastermind is £97+ vat up front and this covers the first month in which you also have a “no questions asked” 30-Day Money Back Guarantee.

For the next 3 months there are monthly payments of £197 + vat. This brings the total cost of the first year to £825.60. Then there’s only a small yearly £40 admin fee.

To put this into perspective the easy-to-do bookmaker sign-up offers on Bonus Bagging and Profit Maximiser total OVER £1,000 – these come with full step-by-step instructions will cover all of your first-year costs and at least 5 years of the annual admin fee. Depending on your bankroll, it is realistic that you could complete all the sign-up offers within the space of 1-2 months.

I had yearly access to Profit Maximiser, Accumulator Generator, Each Way Sniper, the Matched Betting Software, EV Maximiser and Bonus Bagging and when Mike launched this all-in-one super package and it was a no brainer investment for two reasons:

  • I would be saving over £600 per year in annual fees
  • I knew that within a few weeks I would be making back my investment in Betting Mastermind as my average profit gains from Mike’s matched betting products were already £1800 per month
[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]

What Am I Saving By Buying This Ultimate All-In-One Package?

If you were to subscribe to all products in Betting Mastermind separately you would be saving around £200 on the first year. Most of these products come with annual renewal fees so you will then save a further £650 each year.

That £40 admin fee seems like a pretty sweet deal, doesn’t it?[/vc_column_text][vc_table vc_table_theme=”simple_blue”][bg#4aa8c3;b;c#ffffff;14px;align-center;border_left;border_right;border_top;border_bottom]Product,[bg#4aa8c3;b;c#ffffff;14px;align-center;border_right;border_top;border_bottom]First%20Year%20Cost,[bg#4aa8c3;b;c#ffffff;14px;align-center;border_right;border_top;border_bottom]Renewal%20Cost,[bg#4aa8c3;b;c#ffffff;18px;i;align-center;border_right;border_top;border_bottom]Betting%20Mastermind|[align-center;border_left;border_right;border_bottom]Bonus%20Bagging,[align-center;border_right;border_bottom]%C2%A327%20%2B%20vat,[align-center;border_right;border_bottom]N%2Fa,[b;align-center;bg#81d742;c#ffffff;18px;border_right;border_bottom]|[align-center;border_left;border_right;border_bottom]Profit%20Maximiser,[align-center;border_right;border_bottom]%C2%A397%20%2B%20vat,[align-center;border_right;border_bottom]%C2%A397%20%2B%20vat,[b;align-center;bg#81d742;18px;border_right;border_bottom]|[align-center;border_left;border_right;border_bottom]Each%20Way%20Sniper,[align-center;border_right;border_bottom]%C2%A3145.97%20%2B%20vat,[align-center;border_right;border_bottom]%C2%A398.97%20%2B%20vat,[b;align-center;bg#81d742;18px;c#ffffff;border_right;border_bottom]%C2%A397|[align-center;border_left;border_right;border_bottom]Accumulator%20Generator,[align-center;border_right;border_bottom]%C2%A399%20%2B%20vat%20,[align-center;border_right;border_bottom]%C2%A399%20%2B%20vat%20,[b;align-center;bg#81d742;18px;c#ffffff;border_right;border_bottom]%2B%20vat|[align-center;border_left;border_right;border_bottom]Matched%20Betting%20Software,[align-center;border_right;border_bottom]%C2%A398.97%20%2B%20vat,[align-center;border_right;border_bottom]%C2%A398.97%20%2B%20vat,[b;align-center;bg#81d742;18px;c#ffffff;border_right;border_bottom]up%20front|[align-center;border_left;border_right;border_bottom]EV%20Maximiser,[align-center;border_right;border_bottom]%C2%A349.99%20%2B%20vat,[align-center;border_right;border_bottom]N%2Fa%2C%20one%20time%20fee,[b;align-center;bg#81d742;14px;c#ffffff;border_right;border_bottom]|[align-center;border_left;border_right;border_bottom]Bookie%20Blowout,[align-center;border_right;border_bottom]%C2%A399.97%20%2B%20vat,[align-center;border_right;border_bottom]%C2%A399.97%20%2B%20vat,[b;align-center;bg#81d742;14px;c#ffffff;border_right;border_bottom]|[align-center;border_left;border_right;border_bottom]Betfair%20Renegade,[align-center;border_right;border_bottom]Only%20included%20in%20Betting%20Mastermind,[align-center;border_right;border_bottom]N%2Fa,[b;align-center;bg#81d742;14px;c#ffffff;border_right;border_bottom]|[align-center;border_left;border_right;border_bottom]Betfair%20Sniper,[bg;align-center;border_right;border_bottom]Only%20included%20in%20Betting%20Mastermind,[align-center;border_right;border_bottom]N%2Fa,[b;align-center;bg#81d742;18px;border_right;border_bottom]|[align-center;border_left;border_right;border_bottom]Betfair%201%25%20Club,[align-center;border_right;border_bottom]Only%20included%20in%20Betting%20Mastermind,[align-center;border_right;border_bottom]N%2Fa,[bg#81d742;align-center;border_right;border_bottom]|[b;i;border_left;border_right;border_top;border_bottom;border_left;border_right;border_top;border_bottom;border_left;border_right;border_bottom;18px;align-center]First%20Year%20Total,[align-center;c#dd3333;b;border_right;border_top;border_bottom;border_right;border_top;border_bottom;border_right;border_bottom;i;18px]Over%20%C2%A3900,[bg#000000;border_right;border_top;border_bottom;border_right;border_top;border_bottom;border_right;border_bottom;i;18px;align-center],[b;align-center;c#ffffff;bg#81d742;18px;border_right;border_top;border_bottom;border_right;border_top;border_bottom;border_right;border_bottom;i]Just%20%C2%A3825.60|[b;i;border_left;border_right;border_top;border_bottom;border_left;border_right;border_bottom;border_left;border_right;border_bottom;18px;align-center]Yearly%20Renewal%20Total,[bg#000000;border_right;border_top;border_bottom;border_right;border_bottom;border_right;border_bottom;i;18px;align-center],[align-center;c#dd3333;b;border_right;border_top;border_bottom;border_right;border_bottom;border_right;border_bottom;i;18px]%C2%A3606%20per%20year,[b;align-center;c#ffffff;bg#81d742;14px;border_right;border_top;border_bottom;border_right;border_bottom;border_right;border_bottom;i]Only%20%C2%A340%20%2B%20vat%20per%20year[/vc_table][vc_message]Top Tip: Use your first month to complete the bookmaker sports sign-up offers in Bonus Bagging (worth £350+) and Profit Maximiser (worth £750+) to cover the full cost of Betting Mastermind.[/vc_message][vc_btn title=”Sign Up Now” style=”3d” color=”warning” size=”lg” align=”center” i_align=”right” i_icon_fontawesome=”fa fa-mouse-pointer” add_icon=”true” link=”url:http%3A%2F%2Fwww.sportstradingtools.co.uk%2Fprojectprosperity||target:%20_blank|rel:nofollow”][vc_column_text]

Does Betting Mastermind Have a Money Back Guarantee?

If you find that Betting Mastermind isn’t for you then it comes with a “no questions asked” 30-Day Money Back Guarantee. Only providers who have real faith in their service offer this. Mike has always been praised for his customer service and he has no qualms about refunding people if they request one. I can’t imagine he has had people do this, though! Try it out for yourself and if you’re not convinced then ask for a refund before the 30 days are up.[/vc_column_text][vc_single_image image=”1409″ img_size=”full” add_caption=”yes” alignment=”center” style=”vc_box_border” onclick=”link_image” css=”.vc_custom_1497489141456{border-radius: 2px !important;}”][vc_column_text]

Final Thoughts

I had access to 7 of Mike’s products and still invested in Betting Mastermind as I knew in the long term it would save me in renewal fees but that I would also make back my initial investment within just a matter of weeks.

There is no other matched betting service like Betting Mastermind and the Project Prosperity Training that comes with it. It truly is the holy grail of money making systems you will find on the internet due to it being the culmination of Mike Cruickshank’s years of outstanding work in this industry.

With the Project Prosperity training now included too, just imagine being given the keys to unlock your financial freedom so you don’t have to worry about your rent or mortgage payment this month, or being given the freedom to buy that new car or book that dream holiday. This is the level of financial freedom we’re talking about with this all-in-one package.[/vc_column_text][vc_single_image image=”1410″ img_size=”full” add_caption=”yes” alignment=”center” style=”vc_box_border” onclick=”link_image” css=”.vc_custom_1497489343738{border-radius: 2px !important;}”][vc_btn title=”Click Here For Financial Freedom!” style=”3d” color=”warning” size=”lg” align=”center” i_align=”right” i_icon_fontawesome=”fa fa-mouse-pointer” button_block=”true” add_icon=”true” link=”url:http%3A%2F%2Fwww.sportstradingtools.co.uk%2Fprojectprosperity||target:%20_blank|rel:nofollow”][vc_message message_box_color=”success” icon_fontawesome=”fa fa-pencil”]Top Tips

[/vc_message][/vc_tta_section][/vc_tta_accordion][vc_toggle title=”FAQ” size=”lg” open=”true”]How much should I start with for a bankroll?

It depends on how much you can afford or how quickly you want to fly through the initial sign up offers. I personally started with £300, but the bare minimum you could start with is £100.

How much can I make?

It is really comes down to a number of factors such as how much you’re willing to learn and how much time you have to do it. If you have a good amount of spare time then you can make whatever you want – within reason. If you are time poor you can still make a few hundred pounds a month.

How come my earnings from this will be tax free?

Under UK law any earnings made from ‘gambling’ are tax free. Matched betting, although risk free, is still classified as gambling.  Even Wikipedia says so: http://bit.ly/2ocUVJT. See?

Which product should I start with?

As said above – start with Bonus Bagging and then move onto the Profit Maximiser sign ups. These will teach you the basic skills on how to make money from matched betting.

Have you any other tips?

Yes.

  • Once you get into the flow of things start using Smarkets as your main betting exchange. Their 2% commission will save you hundreds in commissions to Betfair every year (they have 5%). Also, sign up to Skrill to have a faster flow of your bankroll. For more top tips read this blog here.
  • Build up your bankroll up to a decent amount (£1000+) and only withdraw amounts you really need until it gets large enough. The bigger the bankroll you have the more offers you will be able to tackle at a time meaning the more money you can make.

What Ways Can I Use Goal Profits?

There are a variety of ways to use Goal Profits depending on your level of trading ability. Whilst the service has its uses for outright beginners, novice traders and professionals the majority of the content in the Member’s Area is tailored for beginning and novice traders alike. I will focus on two main areas below – Launchpad Training and Data Finding.

Launchpad Training

Goal Profits has the most comprehensive and well laid out training section that I have seen on any of the tools listed on Sports Trading Tools. This was overhauled in April 2017 to streamline the modules and to give a fresher look to the Team Stats data. It is grouped into the following 4 sections:

1. GP Basics

This includes the FAQs, Glossary of Terms, information on how to use the Team Stats software most effectively and a section about the Launchpad Mentors – Tim and Bryn. These guys are professional traders who have been able to use Goal Profits so effectively that they have been able to quit their job. They act as mentors by providing advice through the forum and chatroom to help others get the most out of such a powerful tool. They also keep a trading journey diary on the forum which members can read.

2. Trading Basics

Which includes information on Mindset, How to Build Your Portfolio of football trading strategies, Bank Management, Staking, Results and Dealing with Losses. None of these pages are massively in depth, but they don’t need to be as they focus on the most important information and deliver it in a simple style.

3. Weekly Modules

There are 16 weekly modules introduced here which cover over 15 strategies. You are not forced to go through each one week by week, they are all unlocked right from the very start. But it is recommended that new traders follow the defined pathway as it will build your knowledge from the ground up on the path from novice to pro.

Each of these weekly modules are explained in-depth via written guides with some of the strategies also including video example. They are also accompanied by the Team Stats software which will automatically find the best trading options which fit with whatever strategy you’re looking at (which I have named Match Finder in the image below). It can’t be underestimated just how beneficial this is as it essentially cuts out all of the hard research work.

4. Case Studies

At the time of writing this review (April 2017) there are 9 Case Studies listed. This has grown from the 4 or 5 that were on the site when I first signed up. These are Steve’s Case Study example of his thought process from the moment he researched his day’s trades to how the games panned out and how he conducted the trade as it was in-play and then ends with a summary which provides the lesson that can be learnt from that trading sessions.[/vc_column_text][vc_single_image image=”1562″ img_size=”full” add_caption=”yes” alignment=”center” style=”vc_box_border” onclick=”link_image” css=”.vc_custom_1498012029865{border-radius: 2px !important;}”][vc_single_image image=”1563″ img_size=”full” add_caption=”yes” alignment=”center” style=”vc_box_border” onclick=”link_image” css=”.vc_custom_1498012067344{border-radius: 2px !important;}”][vc_single_image image=”1564″ img_size=”full” add_caption=”yes” alignment=”center” style=”vc_box_border” onclick=”link_image” css=”.vc_custom_1498012295628{border-radius: 2px !important;}”][vc_column_text]

It is clear to see that the team at GP really do understand the journey that all new traders go on and everything is in place here to help you succeed. In my experience, you will have to go some to find a level of training that is better, or even rivals, this.

[/vc_column_text][vc_message]Tackle the modules week by week, as is suggested. This will allow you to master each strategy and know how it works inside out.

Remember, you need time to make sports trading work so signing up for a month and giving trying each strategy on a whim with no real plan of action will ultimately be your downfall. If you’re new to trading, I recommend using the tool for 6 months at least before you see your efforts being consistently rewarded.[/vc_message][vc_btn title=”Visit GoalProfits.com” style=”3d” color=”warning” size=”lg” align=”center” i_align=”right” i_icon_fontawesome=”fa fa-mouse-pointer” add_icon=”true” link=”url:http%3A%2F%2Fwww.sportstradingtools.co.uk%2Fgoalprofits||target:%20_blank|rel:nofollow”][vc_column_text]

Data Finding

With the unique Team Stats software users of the site can research their potential trades in one of three ways:

  • Sift through the Team Stats data manually see if you can sport your own opportunities
  • Use the strategies within the Launchpad Training section where Team Stats and Match Finder will do the hard work for you in finding potential trades within that strategies’ defined criteria
  • Build your own Custom Shortlists through selecting the criteria you wish your data to be filtered through.

Your level of trading expertise will obviously tell you which one of these you will be more comfortable with. But I obviously recommend that new users stick to the strategies and data combination within the Launchpad Training.

As mentioned at the beginning of this piece, the Team Stats software provides one hell of an edge in football trading. This software is so very sophisticated and in-depth but is so simple to use. Without data and research your football trading is almost doomed to fail, but when you introduce Team Stats it cuts out a lot of the hassle that comes with finding the best angles to trade a match. It is especially fantastic if you’re not keen on the hassle that comes with collecting and storing your own data.[/vc_column_text][vc_single_image image=”1565″ img_size=”full” add_caption=”yes” alignment=”center” style=”vc_box_border” onclick=”link_image” css=”.vc_custom_1498012821555{border-radius: 2px !important;}”][vc_single_image image=”1566″ img_size=”full” add_caption=”yes” alignment=”center” style=”vc_box_border” onclick=”link_image” css=”.vc_custom_1498012870422{border-radius: 2px !important;}”][vc_column_text]

Some Optional Additions

Within the Member’s Area there are a couple of optional add-ons which you can choose to pay extra for. I’ve personally never used these options as I already had subscriptions to other tools which are very similar, however, I’ve heard feedback from the members who use them and say that they are great pieces of kit.

GP Live!

GP Live! is not something that I had use for as I already had subscription to the In-Play Scanner and Football Form Labs Black which has an in-play function which alerts you to the best stats relating time of the game and the current score.

I imagine this is how GP Live! works – a combination of the two.[/vc_column_text][vc_single_image image=”1395″ img_size=”full” add_caption=”yes” alignment=”center” style=”vc_box_border” onclick=”link_image” css=”.vc_custom_1497477418209{border-radius: 2px !important;}”][vc_column_text]Pre-Match Scalping Tool

This is a price-movement tracking software that will provide you will all the necessary information needed to scalp the pre-match football markets successfully. Again, as I already had a subscription to the Pre-Match Trading tool I didn’t see the point in signing up to this too.[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]

Final Thoughts

Goal Profits is an incredible website and community with all the bells and whistles to help anyone become a successful football trader. My only regret is that I wish I had discovered it at the start of my sports trading journey, but hey, that’s why I created a website like Sports Trading Tools so you can find the right tools to suit you.

Whether you’re a beginner trader or more advanced there is something for everyone here, it has a couple of unique features which are really powerful tools and will provide you with the edge over the market in your football trading. Frankly, folks, football tools don’t get much better than this.

  • With the Team Stats and Match Finder software in the strategies I encourage you to cherry pick the best opportunities only. Just because a match is on the shortlist does not mean it is a perfect fit to trade. As ever with trading, quality over quantity will be the best route to profiting
  • Get involved with the community chat room where members share the opportunities they’ve found and everyone shares in the joy of the recommended trades coming off
  • Tackle the modules week by week, as is suggested. This will allow you to master each strategy and know how it works inside out.

Yes. The software provides data for over 60 leagues around the world and these include the Mexican Leagues and the MLS in the USA.

In-Play Scanner

[vc_row][vc_column width=”2/3″ css=”.vc_custom_1496414174932{border-top-width: 1px !important;border-right-width: 1px !important;border-left-width: 1px !important;border-left-color: #cecece !important;border-left-style: solid !important;border-right-color: #cecece !important;border-right-style: solid !important;border-top-color: #cecece !important;border-top-style: solid !important;border-radius: 1px !important;}”][vc_column_text]The In-Play Scanner is a one-stop overview to see all the important statistics for all football games currently in-play on Betfair. If you’re visiting a website like STT i’m sure you’re likely familiar with the Bet365 In-Play interface that provides a visual representation and match statistics of live football games… Well what if you had a tool like that whereby instead of having to go through each game one by one to see the match stats you could see EVERY game at once? That’s exactly what the In-Play Scanner offers subscribers.

How Does the In-Play Scanner Work?

Just like any major bookmaker does, the In-Play Scanner utilises a data service provider to push the statistics of in-play football matches to their website so they can display the pertinent game information. However, whereas with the bookmakers you can only see the stats on a game by game basis the scanner gathers all of the current in-play matches that are being live-traded on Betfair’s betting exchange and displays all the match information in-play sports that traders need to know in one simple overview hub.[/vc_column_text][vc_widget_sidebar sidebar_id=”gp-sports-trading-for-beginners-widget”][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/3″][vc_cta h2=”In-Play Scanner” h4=”What Edge Will It Give Me?” txt_align=”center” color=”white” add_button=”bottom” btn_title=”Visit Website” btn_style=”3d” btn_color=”warning” btn_size=”lg” btn_align=”center” btn_i_align=”right” btn_i_icon_fontawesome=”fa fa-mouse-pointer” btn_css_animation=”none” css_animation=”none” btn_button_block=”true” btn_add_icon=”true” css=”.vc_custom_1502484696205{border-top-width: 5px !important;border-right-width: 5px !important;border-bottom-width: 5px !important;border-left-width: 5px !important;background-color: #81d742 !important;border-left-color: #cecece !important;border-left-style: outset !important;border-right-color: #cecece !important;border-right-style: outset !important;border-top-color: #cecece !important;border-top-style: outset !important;border-bottom-color: #cecece !important;border-bottom-style: outset !important;border-radius: 5px !important;}” btn_link=”url:http%3A%2F%2Fwww.sportstradingtools.co.uk%2Fips||target:%20_blank|rel:nofollow”]

The In-Play Football Scanner tool is an excellent addition to any in-play trader’s trading arsenal. It is a dream tool to use due to its ease-of-use and providing you a one-look overview of all the current in-play games.

It will provide a significant edge in your in-play trading by giving you instant access to the most important stats allowing you to cherry pick only the best live trading opportunities.

[/vc_cta][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”2/3″ css=”.vc_custom_1496414184165{border-right-width: 1px !important;border-bottom-width: 1px !important;border-left-width: 1px !important;border-left-color: #cecece !important;border-left-style: solid !important;border-right-color: #cecece !important;border-right-style: solid !important;border-bottom-color: #cecece !important;border-bottom-style: solid !important;border-radius: 1px !important;}”][vc_column_text]

What Do I Get with the In-Play Scanner?

There are a couple of little extras that you get with your subscription and this gives you some great extra value for your money. Subscribers get access to the following:

  • In-Play Scanner tool, customisable with your own strategy criteria filters
  • Draw Inflation tool
  • Market Matcher tool
  • The chatroom where professional traders hang out and share their trades
  • Morning emails from Ads, the head trader, with a summary of trades that will be traded live by him in the chatroom

What Ways Can I Use the In-Play Scanner?

Every football game that is currently in-play on Betfair is displayed on the scanner. You can highlight whichever games you want to keep an eye on and order them by whatever choice of statistics you wish – these can be seen below.[/vc_column_text][vc_single_image image=”1368″ img_size=”full” add_caption=”yes” alignment=”center” style=”vc_box_border” onclick=”link_image” css=”.vc_custom_1497279649123{border-radius: 2px !important;}”][vc_column_text]From left to right we have; Shots on Target, Shots off Target, Corners, Penalties, Free Kicks, Red Cards, Yellow Cards, Dangerous Attacks and Possession. You’re probably wondering what the two lightning icons are though… This is PI1 and PI2 – two unique, standout features of the tool.

PI1 (Pressure Index 1) is the red lightning icon and the one I favour.

  • This calculates the pressure in the last 10 minutes by each of the Home and Away sides
  • A shot on or off target counts for 10 points and each 5% share of possession is given one point
  • PI1 highlights in red when a game is seeing a lot of action that could lead to a goal
[/vc_column_text][vc_single_image image=”1369″ img_size=”medium” add_caption=”yes” alignment=”center” style=”vc_box_border” onclick=”link_image” css=”.vc_custom_1497279837404{border-radius: 2px !important;}”][vc_single_image image=”1370″ img_size=”medium” add_caption=”yes” alignment=”center” style=”vc_box_border” onclick=”link_image” css=”.vc_custom_1497279881970{border-radius: 2px !important;}”][vc_column_text]PI2 (Pressure Index 2) is the yellow lightning icon.

  • This calculates the pressure in the last 10 minutes by each of the Home and Away sides
  • This is calculated by a combination of Dangerous Attacks which are allocated 1 point and the weighting given to zero corners occurring in the last 8 minutes (-2 points)
  • PI2 is highlighted in blue when it reaches a certain total and again indicates that there is a lot of attacking going on
[/vc_column_text][vc_single_image image=”1371″ img_size=”medium” add_caption=”yes” alignment=”center” style=”vc_box_border” onclick=”link_image” css=”.vc_custom_1497280024859{border-radius: 2px !important;}”][vc_single_image image=”1372″ img_size=”medium” add_caption=”yes” alignment=”center” style=”vc_box_border” onclick=”link_image” css=”.vc_custom_1497280055097{border-radius: 2px !important;}”][vc_message]Both indicators highlight pressure within the last 10 minutes. If the numbers are high and highlighted then it indicates that this match is ‘hot’ (is seeing a lot of action) and there is strong potential for a goal.[/vc_message][vc_btn title=”Subscribe to the In-Play Scanner” style=”3d” color=”warning” size=”lg” align=”center” i_align=”right” i_icon_fontawesome=”fa fa-mouse-pointer” add_icon=”true” link=”url:http%3A%2F%2Fwww.sportstradingtools.co.uk%2Fips||target:%20_blank|rel:nofollow”][vc_column_text]I’m not sure of many traders in the chatroom who use the PI1 indicator on its own, but one thing is for sure – if both indexes are highlighted then it means the game is producing a lot of attacking pressure, whether that is solely from one team or from both teams, and there is a good chance of a goal.[/vc_column_text][vc_single_image image=”1373″ img_size=”full” add_caption=”yes” alignment=”center” style=”vc_box_border” onclick=”link_image” css=”.vc_custom_1497280267453{border-radius: 2px !important;}”][vc_column_text]

Using Your Own Strategies

The In-Play Scanner is also fully customisable for your own trading style.

Say one of your strategies is ‘Lay 0-0 at Odds of 3’, well with the In-Play Scanner you can set your own parameters so that the scanner will only display games that fit your criteria.

For example, if your criteria for laying the 0-0 was set to:

  • Correct Score: 0-0 with maximum Lay odds of 3.1
  • Correct Score: Minimum Matched – £2,000
  • Shots on Target: Minimum – 5
  • Corners: Minimum: 5

Then whenever a game fits all the criteria you have selected the In-Play Scanner will give you a sound alert that it has been added to your watch list. You can also subscribe to email alerts for when a game matches your criteria too.[/vc_column_text][vc_single_image image=”1374″ img_size=”full” add_caption=”yes” alignment=”center” style=”vc_box_border” onclick=”link_image” css=”.vc_custom_1497280480446{border-radius: 2px !important;}”][vc_message]The bulb icon allows you to highlight games which are catching your eye. These will rise to, and stay, at the top of the screen.[/vc_message][vc_column_text]

Draw Inflation and Market Matcher Tools

These 2 excellent tools come bundled with the In-Play Scanner adding even more value to your subscription. I’ve provided a brief overview below of how they’re used, why they’ll add another string to your football trading bow plus a link to the full review of Draw Inflation.

Draw Inflation

The DI tool indicates when the pre-match price of the draw is overpriced or underpriced. This provides the opportunity for a trader to nip in and back or lay it (or the underdog) in order to scalp a handful of ticks. The Draw Inflation tool can be subscribed to on its own. (Update August 2017 – The Draw Inflation tool no longer comes as a subscription on its own, however it is still bundled with the IPS and the Pre-Match Trading tool as a free add-on.)

For our full review of it, see here.

Market Matcher

Market Matcher is a Pre-Match tool that is used to find games which fit within a certain criteria for any strategy. For example, if you had a strategy that was best used when the Home side’s odds were between 1.7 and 2, with the Over 2.5s were also between 1.7 and 2 with the 0-1 Correct Score to the away side below odds of 11 then the Market Matcher would find games that fit these parameters. This is known as the ‘Back 4’ strategy and one of a number of strategies listed on site that you can get stuck into.                 

Support and Training

The guys over at inplaytrading.com have made a number of videos providing training on how to get the most out of the In-Play Scanner tool where they show it in action. You can check these out on the IPS website. However, the tool itself is fairly self-explanatory and the only training you may need to know is how the Pressure Indexes work, although I’ve already covered this above.

I have never had to contact the site for support purposes but have emailed resident trader Ads a few times and had a timely response within the day.

German and Greek Versions

There are German and Greek versions of the tool available. These are run by franchisees but run exactly the same as the English version.

Click here for the English website.

The German website is known as Goalscanner and can be found here.

The Greek website is known as NextGoal and can be found here.[/vc_column_text][vc_message]The tool’s real value comes during times and days where the fixture schedule is hectic such as Saturday 3pm and midweek evenings with multiple Champions League/Europa League games[/vc_message][vc_column_text]

Final Thoughts

The In-Play Scanner is particularly useful in busy periods where there are a lot of football matches going. As such it is worth its weight in gold on a Saturday afternoon at 3pm when there is a football overload. Likewise, during fixture-packed Sundays and the midweek evenings when there are Champions League, Europa League and English Football League matches on.

If you’re an in-play football trader who likes to get involved at these times you know that keeping a track of matches over the weekend can be a nightmare – if you often find this then the In-Play Scanner will go some way to remedying this headache.[/vc_column_text][vc_btn title=”Find Out More” style=”3d” color=”warning” size=”lg” align=”center” i_align=”right” i_icon_fontawesome=”fa fa-mouse-pointer” button_block=”true” add_icon=”true” link=”url:http%3A%2F%2Fwww.sportstradingtools.co.uk%2Fips||target:%20_blank|rel:nofollow”][pricing_table][pricing_column title=”Monthly” price=”39″ currency_symbol=”£” interval=”per month” title_color=”#1e73be”]

English, Greek and German.

Do I have to sign up for a full season?

No, different subscription plans are available in 14 days, 1 months, 3 months and 6 months increments. Obviously the longer your subscription plan the more save in the long term with the 6 months bringing the monthly price down to £32.

Is the Chatroom lively?

Yes, the chat room is full of traders day in day out. How busy it is obviously depends on the amount of football available to trade. Ads is frequently in the chatroom to share his advice on his recommended trades too.

What leagues does it support?

If a game is listed on Betfair it will be displayed on the scanner.[/vc_toggle][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/3″][vc_widget_sidebar sidebar_id=”gp-sports-trading-sidebar”][/vc_column][/vc_row]

 

Each Way Sniper

[vc_row][vc_column width=”2/3″ css=”.vc_custom_1496414174932{border-top-width: 1px !important;border-right-width: 1px !important;border-left-width: 1px !important;border-left-color: #cecece !important;border-left-style: solid !important;border-right-color: #cecece !important;border-right-style: solid !important;border-top-color: #cecece !important;border-top-style: solid !important;border-radius: 1px !important;}”][vc_column_text]Each Way Sniper is another of Mike Cruickshank’s genius matched betting inventions – this time it’s a risk-free system exclusively for Horse Racing (and a little bit of Golf too when the biggest tournaments are on).

The essential premise is that Each Way Sniper exploits a loophole in the way bookies price up their Each Way markets and offers users a way to profit with every bet they place. It’s kind of like arbing, but the best thing about it is that it’s unlikely to raise much suspicion from the bookies…

How Does Each Way Sniper Work?

Each Way Sniper is a version of Matched Betting that is specific to Horse Racing and the Each Way bet type. There are two main ways that the strategies included will make its users money – one offers smaller, consistent, guaranteed profits (Value/Arbing) every time whilst the second is more lucrative, but does not occur as often (Extra Place – Bonus Offers). 

These are explained more in-depth below. However, do not fret if you are unfamiliar with how Each Way matched betting works. All this info and full video and written training instructions are included in the package.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/3″][vc_cta h2=”Each Way Sniper” h4=”What Edge Will It Give Me?” txt_align=”center” color=”white” add_button=”bottom” btn_title=”Visit Website” btn_style=”3d” btn_color=”warning” btn_size=”lg” btn_align=”center” btn_i_align=”right” btn_i_icon_fontawesome=”fa fa-mouse-pointer” btn_css_animation=”none” css_animation=”none” btn_button_block=”true” btn_add_icon=”true” css=”.vc_custom_1502485159569{border-top-width: 5px !important;border-right-width: 5px !important;border-bottom-width: 5px !important;border-left-width: 5px !important;background-color: #81d742 !important;border-left-color: #cecece !important;border-left-style: outset !important;border-right-color: #cecece !important;border-right-style: outset !important;border-top-color: #cecece !important;border-top-style: outset !important;border-bottom-color: #cecece !important;border-bottom-style: outset !important;border-radius: 5px !important;}” btn_link=”url:http%3A%2F%2Fwww.sportstradingtools.co.uk%2Fews||target:%20_blank|rel:nofollow”]

Each Way Sniper is an outstanding product that offers the opportunity for regular, consistent profits from one system and the chance of hitting huge pay-outs between the other two systems.

It is one of the best matched betting products you will ever use because of its low risk nature and consistent ability to rack up profits throughout the year.

Value/Arbing (Guaranteed profit every time)

This comes about when the bookies are pricing up their Win markets – once they’ve done this the Each Way odds of each runner are automatically calculated at either ¼ or 1/5 of the price of the win odds (depending on the bookie place payout term for that race). However, the Each Way market on Betfair and other betting exchanges does not conform to these prices….

For example, if we look at the following runner ‘South Sea Belle’ in the 16:10 at Newmarket on 20th of April 2017 we can see 4 things:

  • The Win odds Bet365 are offering are 41 and the lay odds of this on Betfair are 48
  • The bookmaker place payout is ¼ of the Win odds (represented by the 4)
  • Therefore, the Each Way odds on Bet365 are 11, but the lay odds of South Sea Belle in the Each Way market on Betfair are only 8
  • For a total stake of £50 we make a guaranteed profit of £5.58 whether the horse wins, places or loses. Just like the pre-race markets in horse racing trading we’ve already made our profit before the race has even started! (I’ve set my commission to 2% as I use Smarkets – which adds up to an extra couple of hundred of quid of profit over the year)

Extra Place – Bonus Offers

Bookies will regularly offer extra place terms for the bigger races in the horse racing calendar. For example, in the Grand National 2017 the standard offer was getting paid out on your runner finishing in the first 4 places. But because bookmakers have so much competition many of them extended this to 5 places, and a few even went up to 6 places!

Why is this significant? Because the standard Each Way terms on betting exchanges will never be enhanced.

While you could back a horse in the Grand National and get paid out if it finished in the top 6 places, the Betfair and Smarkets terms were only for 4 places. So, what happens if your horse finishes 5th or 6th? Well, you get paid out at the bookmaker plus you win your lay bet on the betting exchange – equalling a double win!

Not quite got that? Ok, well let’s have a look at the example of Saphir Du Rheu at the 2017 Grand National. These are the key things to note:

  • Coral are offering to pay out of 5 places for the Grand National
  • Betfair and the other exchanges are only offering 4 places
  • If Saphir Du Rheu had finished in places 1 – 4 then we would have lost 19p. But look at the payout if he had finished 5th
  • If Saphir Du Rheu had finished 5th in the Grand National we would have won both our Each Way bet with the Coral and the lay bet on the exchange – leaving a profit of £181.06

Now, try telling me that isn’t good risk to reward…[/vc_column_text][vc_single_image image=”1355″ img_size=”full” add_caption=”yes” alignment=”center” style=”vc_box_border” onclick=”link_image” css=”.vc_custom_1497275701453{border-radius: 2px !important;}”][vc_message]Each Way Sniper is particularly profitable during the big Horse Racing festivals, with the highlight of the year being the Grand National.[/vc_message][vc_column_text]I used the same system for the 2016 Grand National and hit the 5th and 6th places with Goonyella and Ucello Conti (their names will forever be etched in my mind). These horses were at very decent odds so I got a huge payout of over £500 and I had only risked a few quid to get that.

(This wasn’t luck that I hit these 2 places. I had covered numerous horses across a number of bookmakers – in fact, I think I had covered around 26 of the 40 horses running – so the odds were firmly stacked in my favour to get a big payout). Here’s one of the members of the Profit Maximiser Facebook group telling everyone about his 2017 Grand National extra place payout:[/vc_column_text][vc_single_image image=”1356″ img_size=”full” add_caption=”yes” alignment=”center” style=”vc_box_border” onclick=”link_image” css=”.vc_custom_1497275957798{border-radius: 2px !important;}”][vc_column_text]

What Do I Get with Each Way Sniper?

Each Way Sniper comes in 2 parts.

Part 1: For £47 (+ vat) you receive Each Way Sniper: How To

  • The video instructions for how the 3 systems work
  • Training on how to find your own Each Way Snipes and Extra Place offers
  • The calculator which will work out your stake sizing for both your back and lay bets
  • Dutching – manual entry only
  • The Each Way Value System – ‘set and forget’ whereby you only place back bets without laying them

Part 2: Once you buy that there is the option to upgrade and add the Each Way Sniper Automated Software (£98.97 + vat, but there is a 2-week trial available for £1) which does the following:

  • Finds the bets for you
  • Auto calculates your stakes when you select a bet
  • Gives you access to the automated Dutching (discussed below)

These are huge time-saving features which will allow you to place many more bets and make a lot more money.

In my opinion, there is no point in buying the ‘How To’ package just on its own as it only gives you the strategy. You would then have to do all the hard work of manually finding the bets which would be tedious and labour intensive.[/vc_column_text][vc_message]Top Tip: Use the 2-week trial for the software (get it here for just £1) to make the money to access the software all year round[/vc_message][vc_btn title=”Trial Each Way Sniper for Just £1″ style=”3d” color=”warning” size=”lg” align=”center” i_align=”right” i_icon_fontawesome=”fa fa-mouse-pointer” add_icon=”true” link=”url:http%3A%2F%2Fwww.sportstradingtools.co.uk%2Fews||target:%20_blank|rel:nofollow”][vc_column_text]

What Are The 3 Strategies Included in Each Way Sniper?

1) Each Way Snipe Strategy

Just as described above with the ‘South Sea Belle’ example where we won £5.58 regardless of the result this strategy work by the software finding value in the bookie Horse Racing odds vs the prices of the odds-on betting exchanges such as Betfair.

This is a form of arbitrage betting, however, it focuses on finding arbs between the Each Way price and the lay price of the Place on the exchange. Whereas bookmakers will be quick to close your account if you are taking value arbitrage bets on the win market, they don’t frown upon finding arbitrage value in the Each Way side of the bet just as much.

Just look at the example below, the calculator is telling me if I follow the betting calculations it has given me then I will make £7.32 profit no matter if my horse wins, loses or places.[/vc_column_text][vc_single_image image=”1358″ img_size=”full” add_caption=”yes” alignment=”center” style=”vc_box_border” onclick=”link_image” css=”.vc_custom_1497276668245{border-radius: 2px !important;}”][vc_column_text]2) Extra Places Strategy

The Extra Places Strategy takes advantage of bookmaker offers whereby they are paying out on an Extra Place in a horse race. Matched bettors take advantage of this because the Place terms on betting Exchanges such as Betfair stay as standard. So, when a bookmaker may have an offer on where they are paying out on 6 places for a race such as the Grand National, Betfair’s place terms will still be for just the 4 places.

What matched bettors do is back a horse each way (or a number of horses), lay it off on the betting exchange and then hope that their horse (or one of their horses) places in the extra place provided by the bookmaker. It is key to note that the extra software does all the work for you in finding the bets and calculating your stake sizes. All you have to do is place them.

Here is another example which is similar to the Saphir Du Rheu example of the Grand National mentioned in the How Does It Work? section above. This time we have Coral paying 3 places in a 6 runner race, when Betfair is set at the standard 2 places.

You can see if our horse ‘Forest Bihan’ finished 3rd we would have made a profit of £55.01 on a total stake of £50. Our potential loss of £1.24 only came if the horse won, came second or finished in places 4-6. But if it finished 3rd we got our big payout.[/vc_column_text][vc_single_image image=”1360″ img_size=”full” add_caption=”yes” alignment=”center” style=”vc_box_border” onclick=”link_image” css=”.vc_custom_1497276877786{border-radius: 2px !important;}”][vc_column_text]3) Extra Places – Dutching

Extra Places – Dutching is usually only available on the bigger races in the Horse Racing calendar when a lot of the bookmakers are offering Extra Places on the very same race.

When this happens there is an opportunity to Dutch the race by Each Way backing and laying all of the runners to guarantee a profit no matter what. Due to the Extra Places offered by bookmakers you can also grab an extra enhanced payout depending on where the horses you’ve covered end up placing.

Whilst this is not as quick to do as the other systems it has the potential to offer huge payouts. As said before though – the extra software does all the work for you in finding the bets and calculating your stake sizes. All you have to do is place them.

For example, before the Grand National in 2016 I had guaranteed myself a profit of £540 before the race had even started thanks to this strategy. However, depending on which horses placed 5th and 6th I was in for a potential extra gain of between £300-700. Thankfully two very decently priced horses finished 5th and 6th and I bagged myself another £500 profit (thank you Goonyella and Ucello Conti!) Even though it took around 6 hours to place all my bets and my lays on the Exchange I’d say that £1,000 return was good going, wouldn’t you?

It is not just on the Grand National that big risk free profits can be made with this strategy, there are opportunities all year round, although admittedly there are more in the height of the Horse Racing season between April to October time.[/vc_column_text][vc_btn title=”Sign Up To Each Way Sniper” style=”3d” color=”warning” size=”lg” align=”center” i_align=”right” i_icon_fontawesome=”fa fa-mouse-pointer” add_icon=”true” link=”url:http%3A%2F%2Fwww.sportstradingtools.co.uk%2Fews||target:%20_blank|rel:nofollow”][vc_column_text]

Other Parts of Each Way Sniper

There are two other smaller systems included within Each Way Sniper, I didn’t include them in the overview because I don’t use them very much myself. However, they are very popular strategies that lots of people on the Profit Maximiser forums use.

  • EWS Value System

A 2017 addition to the Each Way Sniper package is the EWS Value System which works as a value betting system – so there is no laying using betting exchanges involved. This cuts out time needed to lay any of the bets you place, but it is not risk free. This works on the fact that the results the EWS software shows are value bets. Over time, if you follow the software settings in the value system you will expect to find yourself on the end of a positive return, however, there will be many ups and downs along the way.

Unlike the other systems where profit is guaranteed each time you place a bet it is not guaranteed using this value system. You will have to suffer losing runs but if you do a large number of bets then over the course of them you will have a positive expected return.

  • Golf Extra Places

I’ll admit, this isn’t part of the system I have used too often but that’s down to my lack of interest in golf and the fact there are not as many times during the year when the golfing system can be used. Just like on big horse racing events the bookmakers often offer extra places on each way bets for some of the major Golf championships.

Take the Master’s 2017 for example. Many bookies were paying 6 places whilst Paddy Power, Sky Bet and William Hill were all offering 8! However, the terms on the Each Way market on Betfair were for 5 places. This gave you 3 extra places to hit for! If your golfer/s finished in any of the 6, 7 and 8 places you would have been looking at a generous risk-free payout.

You can see the number of bookmakers that were offering enhanced Extra Place terms on the 2017 Masters.

  • The training for this product is fantastic – make sure to use it before placing any bets
  • Get to grips with each system within EWS one by one, starting with Each Way Sniper then Extra Places and finally Extra Places – Dutching.
  • On weekdays, when there’s no big festival on, the best time to start looking for bets is around 12pm, you will find EWS throws up good amounts of opportunities during the whole of the racing day
  • Buy the 2-week trial for the Automated Software for £1, start using the tool and make enough profits to pay for the outright version

  • Offers the chance of consistent pay-outs all year round
  • Can provide huge returns on bigger events
  • Simple and easy to use once you get to grips with it, the software does everything apart from placing the bets for you!
  • Most strategies are risk-free
  • Works on gubbed accounts (but not stake-limited ones)

  • May take those who are new to matched betting a while to get their head around how it works. However, all training is provided and you’ll understand it no problem once you do 2 or 3 bets
  • Most value is provided when the horse racing is on – which is mainly during the day. However, in summer time there are plenty of evening races to get stuck into and the biggest opportunities are usually on a Saturday!
  • Is not useful on accounts which are heavily restricted or stake-limited
[/vc_message][/vc_tta_section][/vc_tta_accordion][vc_toggle title=”FAQ” size=”lg” open=”true”]Can I use this on gubbed (bonus banned) accounts?

Yes. It is stake-limited accounts that would not benefit from this. Gubbings come in the form of accounts being bonuses banned and, thankfully, bookmakers do not class Extra Place promotions as bonus offers.[/vc_toggle][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/3″][vc_widget_sidebar sidebar_id=”cs-matched-betting-sidebar”][/vc_column][/vc_row]

What Do I Get with Caan Berry’s Advanced Video Pack?

  • 22 Modules
  • 96 Videos
  • 11 Trading Checklists

Caan Berry’s motto for the video pack is: “Tell me and I’ll forget. Show me and I’ll remember. But involve me and I’ll understand.”

There is a clear emphasis of thinking about what the student wants to hear, see and know as Caan talks you through his exact thinking on the markets through video examples. It allows you to get inside his head and understand how a professional trader thinks and acts when trading pre-race.

It’s important to note that when Caan first started trading back in 2009 there was very little of this sort of knowledge available. What does that matter? Well, it means that Caan had to figure almost everything out for himself meaning that he developed a deeper level of knowledge and understanding of how to successfully trade the pre-race horse racing markets.

This shows in the video pack (and his blogs) in which he explains things at a level any novice-intermediate trader can understand.

The list is pretty extensive, as you can see. This is great value for money when you consider how much a 1-day course costs (between £240-400!) and the fact you can watch, pause and replay the videos here at your own leisure. There’s even a module thrown in about trading Greyhound Racing – which is a good test field for any newbie due to the similarities in market dynamics with horse racing.

  • Mindset Mindset and psychology are massive hurdles for any sports trader, Caan struggled heavily with this at the beginning and explains a lot about how he overcame this barrier
  • Swing Trading and Scalping Modules I found the scalping and swing trading modules particularly comprehensive – as obviously these are two of the main styles of trading you will be using.
  • How to Spot Genuine Money As far as I can recollect, Caan is the only trader I know who goes in depth on this topic. Too often at the start I was caught out by the manipulation of the Weight of Money indicator. After watching this module I genuinely felt I had no problem in spotting manipulation of the WOM whatsoever. In fact, it became so obvious I stopped getting caught in the trap

Some may say the price of the video pack is prohibitive, but just think – what would you get more long term value out of – a 1-day course that costs £400 or a video pack that you can watch and reference check repeatedly?

The purchase of the video pack also comes with free updates for life – so if Caan adds anything more to it then you won’t have to pay to access the extra content.[/vc_column_text][vc_message]Caan’s Berry’s Advanced Video Pack presents great value for money when compared to 1 day courses which cost between £240-425. The value in the content is that you can watch and learn from it at your own pace and replay it time and time again.

Caan Berry’s Advanced Video Pack 2016 Update

The video pack was updated in November 2016 after Caan redesigned his website to give it a new layout. It’s now much more user-friendly and makes it easier to track your progress through the videos (indicated by a green dot appearing next once you complete a video – this is shown in the Swing Trading Module Videos image above).

Caan also added some new videos which have better annotations and more pauses in them so he has time to tell you exactly what he was thinking in that moment. This is a very helpful insight into the mindset of a professional trader.[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]

Final Thoughts on Caan Berry’s Advanced Video Pack

Caan is someone who knows and understands the initial stages and struggles any newbie sports trader goes through. This is a vital attribute when putting together content for people to learn from – and one that, sadly, some professionals miss the point on.

This is a fantastic resource for those looking to take the leap from the beginner stages of their learning to the next step of novice-intermediate learnings that they can apply to the markets themselves.[/vc_column_text][vc_btn title=”Buy the Advanced Video Pack” style=”3d” color=”warning” size=”lg” align=”center” i_align=”right” i_icon_fontawesome=”fa fa-mouse-pointer” button_block=”true” add_icon=”true” link=”url:http%3A%2F%2Fwww.sportstradingtools.co.uk%2Fcaan-berry-avp||target:%20_blank|rel:nofollow”][vc_message message_box_color=”success” icon_fontawesome=”fa fa-pencil”]Top Tips

He explains a lot of the struggles he went through when he started his journey and how he overcame them – a lot of which many of you reading this will undoubtedly be able to relate to. You can find our blog post on Caan’s Berry’s 4 Best YouTube Videos, by clicking here.
  • It almost goes without saying – but start from the start and work through it in the format the content is laid out in. There is no point jumping straight ahead to the Swing Trading module if you haven’t watched the videos on Executing Your Trades and Managing Risk.
  • Watch a module and try to implement your learnings from it during your next trading session. Then do the same again with another module and another trading session.
  • Caan is always happy to help newbies to HR trading, follow him on Facebook and Twitter where he often posts and interacts with his followers
  • Combining the knowledge presented in the video pack with the content in Caan’s Pre-Race Trading Guide will provide great grounding for tackling the markets

Background

Matched Betting is the online phenomena that tens of thousands of people have been using for years to make risk-free profits from bookmakers. It is a way to make money from the promotions and bonuses that online bookmakers offer.

Since 2010 it has been featured on Wikipedia, Huffington Post, The Telegraph, Save The Student, Martin Lewis’ Money Savings Expert, and NetMums.

Matched Betting Popularity

Matched Betting has been popular for well over a decade, but it has really come into the mainstream since 2014. To visualise this we can see the Google Trends of it for the past 5 years:[/vc_column_text][vc_raw_js]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[/vc_raw_js][vc_column_text][/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space][vc_column_text]

1. What is Matched Betting?

Matched Betting is the method of using simple maths to extract risk-free money from online bookmaker bonuses.

In this guide, you’ll find out which are the most reputable services and which are best placed to help you join the tens of thousands of other matched bettors who are sweeping up thousands of pounds in extra income per year.

OddsMonkey is just one of the service providers who teach it to the thousands who have joined their community. Check out their promotional video which explains how matched betting works:[/vc_column_text][vc_video link=”https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tEz0-pDodVU” el_width=”70″ align=”center”][vc_btn title=”Find Out More About OddsMonkey” style=”3d” color=”warning” align=”center” i_align=”right” i_icon_fontawesome=”fa fa-mouse-pointer” add_icon=”true” link=”url:http%3A%2F%2Fwww.sportstradingtools.co.uk%2Foddsm||target:%20_blank|rel:nofollow”][vc_column_text]Or read our full OddsMonkey review.[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text][/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space][vc_column_text]

2. Who Does Matched Betting and How Do You Use It Yourself?

Students use it to pay their living costs at Uni, stay-at-home mums use it to make an extra income in their spare time and the financially savvy use it to grow their wealth. Then there’s those who dream of making an online second income to help pay for those little extras in life such as dream holidays or a new car.

At the start, I used it for simple stuff like paying my rent, then when I made more I, eh, ‘invested’ in a PS4, HDTV, new Macbook Pro and a new car. Ok, maybe ‘invested’ is the wrong word – let’s go with ‘indulged’.

At times though, it really has been my sole income – particularly when I was between jobs. I hate the 9-5, so I used it to live on whilst I figured out what I really wanted to do in life.[/vc_column_text][vc_single_image image=”1697″ img_size=”750×375″ add_caption=”yes” alignment=”center”][vc_column_text][/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space][vc_column_text]

3. What Does Wikipedia Say About Matched Betting?

What better site to explain what it is than everyone’s trusted research friend Wikipedia:

“Matched betting (also known as back or lay bet matching, or double betting) is a betting technique used by individuals to profit from the free bets and incentives offered by bookmakers. It is generally considered risk-free as it is based on the application of a mathematical equation rather than chance.”

Source: Wikipedia – Matched Betting

This is done by taking advantage of the bonuses and promotions offered by bookmakers such as Paddy Power, William Hill, Coral, Ladbrokes, Bet365 and many more.[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text][/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space][vc_column_text]

4. Why Do Bookmakers Have These Bonuses and Promotions?

Quite simply it is due to increased competition. The offline tactic of bookmakers is to open lots of stores and soak in all the gamblers in the local area. But online it’s different, they’re all on a level playing field so they must work harder to entice customers like us to sign up to them over their rivals. They do this by offering generous free bet promotions upon sign up and keep customers coming back with what are known as ‘reload offers’.[/vc_column_text][vc_message]

Sign-Up Offers

Bookmakers offer free bets upon sign up run to entice customers to choose to their site over their competitors. Nearly every one of the 100+ online bookmakers and casinos offer these meaning lots of opportunities to profit.

5. What Do Bookmakers Think About Matched Betting?

You won’t be surprised to know that they’re not the keenest on it, for obvious reasons. I’ll give you two of the main ones:

  • You’re mopping up enormous value and guaranteeing yourself a profit in both the short and long term
  • It gives realisation to real gamblers that there actually is a way to beat the bookies.

However, you must acknowledge just how big the gambling industry is and compare it to the amount of people who are matched bettors. We’re a tiny pool of smart, savvy people that make only a tiny dent in the bookies overall humungous profits.

They can’t stop it and most of them just live with it. For example, William Hill were asked by The Guardian about it back in 2010 and said:

[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text][/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space][vc_column_text]

6. Does Matched Betting Really Work?

Yes. Tens of thousands of people have been making lots of money from it for years now – in fact, it was written about in the Guardian in 2010, as seen above. It particularly exploded from the end of 2015 onwards due to new matched betting communities such as Profit Accumulator and OddsMonkey popping up.

I personally started matched betting in 2014 after a friend told me about it and I immediately seen the potential. I had never been a gambler up until around 4 months before when I had just started betting with Bet365 (following those Facebook pages that promised £25-£1000 challenges – that never won!) and had lost around £300 in that time. I recovered that £300 and more within 3 weeks by signing up to Mike Cruickshank’s Bonus Bagging service.[/vc_column_text][vc_separator border_width=”2″ el_width=”80″][vc_column_text][/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space][vc_column_text]

7. Before You Start…

[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]

Most people think Matched Betting is a scam when they first hear about it.

Unfortunately for them, they’re the ones who lose out on the substantial second income it can provide.

You don’t want to be one of them, do you? 

If you do, then there’s no point in reading on further, it’ll just be a waste of your time.

[/vc_column_text][vc_separator border_width=”2″ el_width=”80″][vc_column_text]In the following paragraphs, I will tell you HOW the process of Matched Betting works. It may sound like a lot of hard work, but it’s not. Thankfully there are dedicated service providers and communities out there that do all the hard work for you in providing detailed written and video instructions on how to extract this money.

We have compared only the very best ones on this site and you can find out more about them by viewing the summary table in the next section.[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text][/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space][vc_column_text]

8. Who Can Help Me Get Started with Matched Betting?

Let me put your mind at ease – you don’t need to worry about how to do it.

A lot of the hard work is done for you by service providers such as Profit Accumulator, Profit Maximiser and OddsMonkey. There are also a few more out there such as Profit Squirrel, MatchedBets, Profit Squad, Profit Ninja and Bank of Bets who have recently jumped on the matched betting bandwagon as the phenomenon caught on.

As well as this, there are some free groups however I find they’re a waste of time due to their lack of resources. They seem to be frustrating experiences and it definitely holds the people in them back from their profit-making potential. It’s simple: if you want something done right then sign up to a paid-for service, the yearly subscription will be recouped within 2 weeks anyway.

Currently we have reviews of the top 3 market leaders:[/vc_column_text][vc_row_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/3″][vc_separator el_width=”80″][vc_column_text]

9. What Will Happen When I First Sign Up to a Service?

Whenever you first sign up to a matched betting service you will go through these first 2 stages:

1. Training and Completing Bookmaker Sign-Up Offers

Once you sign up to a service you’ll have access to their tutorials in the form of written instructions and video guides about how Matched Betting works and how to complete a raft of bookmaker sign-up offers. Completing these sign up offers will make you some great, easy profits (over £1,000 if you’ve never opened a bookmaker account before) – but it’s suggested that you keep most of this money in order to bankroll your exploits. This is because after you complete the sign up offers you’ll be able to take advantage of matched betting on a daily basis through what are known as reload offers.

2. Reload Offers

The real hard work that these services do for their members is sourcing and posting the offers that bookmakers promote daily – these are known as ‘reload offers’. These are usually posted on a calendar or in a forum and members are given instructions on how to make the most money from them. This is where you make the consistent profits all year round.[/vc_column_text][vc_message]

Reload Offer

Regular promotions that bookmakers run to entice current customers return to their site over the competitions. For example, Bet365’s £50 In-Play offer.

Bet365 £50 In-Play Reload Offer
[/vc_message][vc_column_text]Personally, I have been a Profit Maximiser member since 2014 and upgraded to the full-suite package of ‘Betting Mastermind’ in 2015, this gets me access to all of Mike Cruickshank’s products for life. I’ve also signed up to Profit Accumulator and OddsMonkey too for reviewing purposes.[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text][/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space][vc_column_text]

10. How Does Matched Betting Work?

The simplest form of matched betting takes place in the space of two parts – 1) A qualifying bet and 2) A free bet.

You’ve all seen the ads on TV in which a bookmaker promotes their new customer offer of “Sign-up with us and bet £10 and we’ll give you £30 in free bets!”. But how do we as matched bettors make our risk-free cash from this?

Betfred Sign-Up - Bet £10 and Get £30 in Free Bets
Betfred Sign-Up – Bet £10 and Get £30 in Free Bets

Well, what we do is sign-up to the bookmaker, deposit our £10 and place it on a selection – (this is known as a qualifying bet) so we can qualify for the £30 free bet the bookmaker is offering. We will then use this £30 free bet in the second part of the process to make some risk-free money.

This fantastic tutorial video from OddsMonkey shows how to extract £24.98 profit in less than 15 minutes from this process:[/vc_column_text][vc_video link=”https://youtu.be/syUp9qZFLlM” el_width=”80″ align=”center”][vc_cta h2=”OddsMonkey” txt_align=”center” color=”white” add_button=”bottom” btn_title=”Visit OddsMonkey.com” btn_style=”3d” btn_color=”warning” btn_align=”center” btn_i_align=”right” btn_i_icon_fontawesome=”fa fa-mouse-pointer” btn_add_icon=”true” css=”.vc_custom_1500864782448{border-top-width: 5px !important;border-right-width: 5px !important;border-bottom-width: 5px !important;border-left-width: 5px !important;background-color: #81d742 !important;border-left-color: #cecece !important;border-left-style: outset !important;border-right-color: #cecece !important;border-right-style: outset !important;border-top-color: #cecece !important;border-top-style: outset !important;border-bottom-color: #cecece !important;border-bottom-style: outset !important;border-radius: 5px !important;}” btn_link=”url:http%3A%2F%2Fwww.sportstradingtools.co.uk%2Foddsm||target:%20_blank|rel:nofollow”]OddsMonkey will teach you how to make thousands of pounds in extra income a year through a simple, proven method that has been used to outsmart the bookmakers for years. There is no better edge in betting than using a matched betting service like this.

Take action with the initial sign-up offers and you’ll have the yearly subscription made back within a week with this life-changing service.

11. Further Info: Why Do Matched Bettors Use Decimal Odds?

Decimal odds are used in matched betting as this is the way odds are displayed on betting exchanges. Changing your ‘Odds Display’ format on the bookmaker websites also to Decimal Odds makes it much easier to read and compare odds.

These are called decimal odds and have become more popular over recent years – likely due to the rise in popularity of matched betting.

For matched betting, changing your display settings on bookmakers to decimal odds will greatly help in reducing the time it takes for you to figure out if the odds you are looking at between the bookmaker and the betting exchange are a good match or not.[/vc_column_text][vc_table vc_table_theme=”classic”][i;align-center;u]Fraction,[align-center;u]Decimal,[align-center;i;u]Fraction,[align-center;u]Decimal,[i;align-center;u]Fraction,[align-center;u]Decimal|[align-center]1%2F10,[align-center]1.10,[i;align-center]1%2F1%20(Evens),[align-center]2.00,[i;align-center]5%2F1,[align-center]6.00|[align-center]1%2F9,[align-center]1.11,[i;align-center]11%2F10,[align-center]2.10,[i;align-center]11%2F2,[align-center]6.50|[align-center]1%2F8,[align-center]1.12,[i;align-center]6%2F5,[align-center]2.20,[i;align-center]6%2F1,[align-center]7.00|[align-center]1%2F7,[align-center]1.14,[i;align-center]5%2F4,[align-center]2.25,[i;align-center]13%2F2,[align-center]7.50|[align-center]1%2F6,[align-center]1.17,[i;align-center]11%2F8,[align-center]2.38,[i;align-center]7%2F1,[align-center]8.00|[align-center]1%2F5,[align-center]1.20,[i;align-center]6%2F4,[align-center]2.50,[i;align-center]15%2F2,[align-center]8.50|[align-center]2%2F9,[align-center]1.22,[i;align-center]13%2F8,[align-center]2.63,[i;align-center]8%2F1,[align-center]9.00|[align-center]1%2F4,[align-center]1.25,[i;align-center]7%2F4,[align-center]2.75,[i;align-center]17%2F2,[align-center]9.50|[align-center]2%2F7,[align-center]1.29,[i;align-center]9%2F5,[align-center]2.80,[i;align-center]9%2F1,[align-center]10.00|[align-center]3%2F10,[align-center]1.30,[i;align-center]15%2F8,[align-center]2.86,[i;align-center]10%2F1,[align-center]11.00|[align-center]1%2F3,[align-center]1.33,[i;align-center]2%2F1,[align-center]3.00,[i;align-center]11%2F1,[align-center]12.00|[align-center]4%2F11,[align-center]1.36,[i;align-center]85%2F40,[align-center]3.12,[i;align-center]12%2F1,[align-center]13.00|[align-center]2%2F5,[align-center]1.40,[i;align-center]11%2F5,[align-center]3.20,[i;align-center]14%2F1,[align-center]15.00|[align-center]4%2F9,[align-center]1.44,[i;align-center]9%2F4,[align-center]3.25,[i;align-center]15%2F1,[align-center]16.00|[align-center]1%2F2,[align-center]1.50,[i;align-center]12%2F5,[align-center]3.40,[i;align-center]16%2F1,[align-center]17.00|[align-center]8%2F15,[align-center]1.53,[i;align-center]5%2F2,[align-center]3.50,[i;align-center]18%2F1,[align-center]19.00|[align-center]4%2F7,[align-center]1.57,[i;align-center]13%2F5,[align-center]3.60,[i;align-center]20%2F1,[align-center]21.00|[align-center]8%2F13,[align-center]1.62,[i;align-center]11%2F4,[align-center]3.75,[i;align-center]25%2F1,[align-center]26.00|[align-center]4%2F6,[align-center]1.67,[i;align-center]3%2F1,[align-center]4.00,[i;align-center]33%2F1,[align-center]34.00|[align-center]8%2F11,[align-center]1.73,[i;align-center]10%2F3,[align-center]4.33,[i;align-center]40%2F1,[align-center]41.00|[align-center]4%2F5,[align-center]1.80,[i;align-center]7%2F2,[align-center]4.50,[i;align-center]50%2F1,[align-center]51.00|[align-center]5%2F6,[align-center]1.83,[i;align-center]4%2F1,[align-center]5.00,[i;align-center]66%2F1,[align-center]67.00|[align-center]10%2F11,[align-center]1.91,[i;align-center]9%2F2,[align-center]5.50,[i;align-center]100%2F1,[align-center]101.00[/vc_table][/vc_tta_section][/vc_tta_accordion][vc_column_text][/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space][vc_column_text]

12. Sounds Easy, Doesn’t It?

Ok, I know for newbies it may sound slightly complex – but it’s not, it’s just because it’s a new concept you’re maybe only hearing about for the first time.

Like all the good things in life it requires a little bit of effort at the beginning whilst you learn the ropes. But there are many matched betting service providers and communities which give you step by step instructions when beginning.

In fact, they really couldn’t make it any easier.

Once you’ve done one process a couple of times it’ll become second nature and the idea of making money online will never have seemed any simpler.[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text][/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space][vc_tta_accordion color=”turquoise” active_section=”0″ no_fill=”true” collapsible_all=”true”][vc_tta_section i_icon_fontawesome=”fa fa-info-circle” add_icon=”true” title=”13. Further Info: How Does a Betting Exchange Work and Which One Should I Use?” tab_id=”1498333234625-26bce8c5-0ab0″][vc_column_text]A betting exchange is a platform that allows peer-to-peer betting. This means that when you place a back or a lay bet then there will be someone on the other side accepting the odds you’ve placed your bet at. For example, if you back a horse to win a race on Betfair Exchange then there is someone on the other side who has matched your bet with a lay bet to say that the horse you’ve chosen won’t win the race.

Betting Exchanges are popular for the following important reasons:

  • As it’s peer-to-peer betting the odds are usually much better than bookmakers
  • Bookmakers have a reputation for restricting or banning winning punters – they don’t want people straight up betting and winning money. With a betting exchange, you will never get banned for winning
[/vc_column_text][vc_message]There are 4 main betting exchanges. These are: Betfair, Betdaq, Matchbook and Smarkets. Matched Bettors mainly use one of either Betfair or Smarkets. Betfair because it is the biggest and most well known Exchange and Smarkets because it has a more favourable commission structure for users.

14. How Much Money Do People Make from Matched Betting?

It really depends on how much action you want to take. Mike Cruickshank’s Project Prosperity training (available through Betting Mastermind) will show you how you can grow a £500 bankroll into £15,000 in 8 months by matched betting for just 1 hour a day.

Do I think this is possible? Yep, no doubt it is – Mike has been the grandmaster of matched betting since 2011 and has all the refined techniques and methods to help anyone make this sort of money.

Personally, in my first year I made around £8,000. In my second year, it was around £20,000. Many people aim for between the £5,000 – £10,000 bracket in their first full year. By doing the sign-up offers that the services give you tutorials to, there is at least £1,000 profit waiting on the table for you to get started with.[/vc_column_text][vc_cta h2=”Betting Mastermind” h4=” with Free Project Prosperity Training” txt_align=”center” color=”white” add_button=”bottom” btn_title=”Find Out More” btn_style=”3d” btn_color=”warning” btn_align=”center” btn_i_align=”right” btn_i_icon_fontawesome=”fa fa-mouse-pointer” btn_add_icon=”true” css=”.vc_custom_1501868625365{border-top-width: 5px !important;border-right-width: 5px !important;border-bottom-width: 5px !important;border-left-width: 5px !important;background-color: #81d742 !important;border-left-color: #cecece !important;border-left-style: outset !important;border-right-color: #cecece !important;border-right-style: outset !important;border-top-color: #cecece !important;border-top-style: outset !important;border-bottom-color: #cecece !important;border-bottom-style: outset !important;border-radius: 5px !important;}” btn_link=”url:http%3A%2F%2Fwww.sportstradingtools.co.uk%2Fprojectprosperity||target:%20_blank|rel:nofollow”]

This is no ordinary tool. It is a serious weapon of matched betting destruction that the bookies don’t want you to know about. The pinnacle of Mike Cruickshank’s work, this all-in-one package will provide you with risk-free returns for years to come. 

Betting Mastermind will likely be the best investment you ever make.

15. OK, I’m Getting the Hang of This – Which Service Do You Recommend?

Use the table in the next section below (Section 16) to see where your level of knowledge around betting and betting exchanges fits in.

I personally started with Bonus Bagging and progressed to Profit Maximiser (which I made over £8,000 from in my first year) and now own lifetime access to all of Mike Cruickshank’s services through Betting Mastermind (which now comes with free Project Prosperity training).

Betting Mastermind which is a behemoth, all-encompassing service that helped me make over £21,000 in the first 10 months of use. (If you think that’s good then wait ‘til you see the guy who made over £100,000 in 18 months using Betting Mastermind – see below)

However, you don’t have to use this one. There are also Profit Accumulator and OddsMonkey who have come along in the past few years with fresher looking websites that appeal to people a bit more.[/vc_column_text][vc_single_image image=”1695″ img_size=”full” add_caption=”yes” alignment=”center” onclick=”link_image”][vc_column_text][/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]

17. Is There an Even More Advanced Level?

Yes. You can reach this in two ways – by using some separate products such as Each Way Sniper and doing accumulator matched betting  – which services like Profit Accumulator and OddsMonkey will also teach you to do. However, if you really want to take it to the ultimate level then Betting Mastermind with free Project Prosperity Training which takes you from £500 to £15,000 in 8 months (for more info see the table below) is where it is at. It holds access to a unique range of 8 software and 2 sports trading systems.

18. Is Matched Betting Definitely Legal?

If it wasn’t then so many people wouldn’t be doing it. Nor would Huffington Post, Save The Student and Martin Lewis’ Money Savings Expert be writing articles and guides about it. Think about it – would a website as reputable as the Huffington Post give out duff information like this? They’d get in a lot of trouble if they were lying about this sort of thing.[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text][/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space][vc_column_text]

19. Do I Have to Pay Taxes on My Matched Betting Earnings?

You’ll be glad to know that all earnings from matched betting are entirely tax free! 

In fact, let’s just see what Wikipedia has to say on the topic:

Matched betting, along with all other betting, is tax-free in the UK.

Source: Wikipedia – Matched Betting

[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space][vc_column_text][/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]

20. This All Sounds Too Good to Be True – What Are the Downsides?

Matched Betting is not a scam or a con. It is a legitimate way to make a tax-free second income online. Serious downsides include:

  • Being able to afford the things you want
  • Having spare cash at the end of the month
  • Not worrying about having to pay your mortgage bill or rent for the month
  • Booking that dream holiday

… all on the bookies!

Seriously though, if you ask anyone who has done matched betting they will be hard pushed to give you a negative.

It has been a life changing experience for myself, my mates and everyone on the services we use. Speaking for myself and my friends, we’ve had a better income than what we would if we were to work regular jobs and have therefor been able to invest our extra earnings. Some friends have bought second houses, whereas I’m currently using mine to live on and invest into cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin whilst I pursue my current dream of learning new skills such as sports and cryptocurrency trading.

Whilst everyone else has been feeling the squeeze due to higher living costs and stagnant rates of pay us matched bettors haven’t had the anxiety that surrounds that – something I’m very grateful for.[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text][/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space][vc_column_text]

21. How Long Will This Last For?

No one can say for sure. Matched betting has been going on for well over a decade, but it has adapted along the way as bookmakers became wiser to what people were doing. The landscape of matched betting is far different now than what it was when it first began.

However, if you don’t take advantage of it now you may come to rue the day when you thought about taking action, didn’t do it and missed out on a lot of extra income that could have been spent improving your lifestyle.[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text][/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space][vc_column_text]

22. Final Thoughts

The reason I’m so passionate about this is because of the immense amount of good it has done in my life and how much I have seen it provide financial freedom to other people. I’m so thankful my friend told me about it and I was happy to take the chance – if I hadn’t my life would look much different right now and I have no doubt I’d have struggled financially over the past few years.[/vc_column_text][vc_single_image image=”1410″ img_size=”full” alignment=”center”][vc_column_text][/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space][vc_toggle title=”23. FAQ” size=”lg” open=”true” custom_font_container=”tag:h2|text_align:center” custom_use_theme_fonts=”yes” use_custom_heading=”true”]Is It Tax Free?

Yup! As it is technically winnings from gambling the profit is all yours.

Is Matched Betting Still Profitable?

Yes. Even though it evolves over time as bookmakers try to shake us off they will always have to offer promotions and bonuses while they can still get new customers on board.

Casino Offers – How Do They Work?

Casino offers are not quite risk free. In fact, if you were to do 100 casino offers it would be likely that you would lose money on between 80-90 of the 100 attempts. But due to two basic maths principles – 1. The Law of Large Numbers and 2. Estimated Value – in the other 10-20 attempts you will make a profit that outweighs any losses you have. For more information here is a YouTube video that explains this concept excellently:

It is the only software that is available for trading the big three Betting Exchanges in Betfair, Betdaq and Matchbook. Whilst it only works natively on Windows operating system, it runs perfectly well on Mac using a multi-boot utility tool called Bootcamp.

How Does Betfair Trading Software Work?

Betfair trading software allows sports traders to see the full depth of the markets through ladder interfaces. This helps traders analyse markets much more effectively whilst also providing them with the edge of instant one-click order placement and greening up when hedging a trade. Geeks Toy trading software provides a platform for novice users to seamlessly execute these functions.

If you’re new to sports trading and are not quite sure why traders use software then you may want to have a read of our Betfair Trading Software Overview.

What Do I Get with Geeks Toy?

The option of a 3 month or one year’s subscription to the Geeks Toy trading software for Betfair and this includes all of the features discussed in this review. There is a full-feature 14-day free trial available, whilst the Betdaq and Matchbook versions are completely free to download and use.

Geeks Toy is an incredible piece of software that is reliable and fully customisable whilst also being one of the cheapest on the market.

It is a perfect place to start for anyone wishing to take their sports trading seriously through using dedicated software.

What Features Does Geeks Toy Offer?

Whilst it may not have as many advanced features as its nearest competitor, Bet Angel, this is a cheaper software that is fully customisable, reliable and perfect for any newcomer to sports trading. Below is a list of its main features and their functions:

Full Customisation

The level of customisation in Geeks Toy is incredible and is one of the standout features that makes people love it so much. It really is a toy for sports trading geeks. When I first installed it, I spent a couple of hours just playing with it and setting it up in the way that suited me. There are so many ways you can customise the look and how information is displayed.

When I’m trading a sport other than horse racing I use Geeks Toy on my ‘desktop’ 13” Macbook Pro, which is connected to two 21” monitors, through an application called Bootcamp. But for the majority of the time i’m using it on my 12” Macbook where the level of customisation is an incredible benefit due to my limited screen space.

Estimated Queue Position

Another standout feature is the Estimated Queue Position setting. As the name suggests this will give you an estimation of the amount of money in the queue waiting to be matched before yours. This is an awesome feature that will inform you how close you are to getting your money matched – allowing you to make a decision on whether to keep it there or move it – this is of particular benefit when scalping.[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]In the example image below, you can see that i’ve placed a £25 lay bet at odds of 2.14. On the right, you can see the volume traded at each price – however, for this price it is now displaying an estimate of the amount of money waiting in the queue to be matched (£122) before my £25 order starts to be matched.

I can still roughly tell how much money has been previously traded at 2.14 as the green fill bar is almost at the same capacity as the price above (2.16) where £5.4k has been matched. I can estimate that £5k has been matched at 2.14 and that my £25 has a good chance of being taken.[/vc_column_text][vc_single_image image=”2053″ img_size=”full” add_caption=”yes” alignment=”center” style=”vc_box_border” onclick=”link_image”][vc_message]Estimated Queue Position is an extremely useful feature for those who prefer scalping.[/vc_message][vc_column_text]Multi-Market Trading

When you open a market, it pops up in the form of a module window. If you want you can have as many of these modules open at any one time (providing your computer can handle it). You can arrange them anywhere you want on your screen and even minimise them whilst keeping the tab in the background, ready to maximise when you want to interact with that market again.

Reliability

Geeks Toy is fast, responsive and provides great reliability. It displays any issues with the API status on the overview panel. There has only been one issue that I remember during my usage and it was actually turned out to be a fault that Betfair had created by mistake. Yes, really. Betfair can be that incompetent at times.

[/vc_column_text][vc_single_image image=”2054″ img_size=”full” add_caption=”yes” alignment=”center” style=”vc_box_border” onclick=”link_image”][vc_column_text]Available for 3 Major Betting Exchanges

Geeks Toy is available for Betfair, Betdaq and Matchbook with the only real differences being the look and a couple of nuances that are unique to each particular betting exchange.

Live Video

The software pulls in the live video from Betfair for each event so you can watch it in your own Geeks Toy pop-up module instead of having to click onto Betfair each time a new race starts. Unfortunately, this hasn’t worked on my Mac version… Nor does it work on my Bootcamp version of Windows on my ‘desktop’ Mac. But it definitely works for Windows PC users.

Charting

You can pick from a range of charting options and display them however you want. I really like how customisable the Overview chart is. You can also have technical charts such as Weight of Money, Traded Volume, Price Line, Price Candle and MACD charts above, below or to the side of your ladders. The Betfair charts stay either above or below.

Support and Training

I’ve never had to ask The Geek for support but I know he and users of the software will usually answer any queries on the forum. However, the user-guide is so in-depth it’s likely you will find your answer there.

Training is available in the aforementioned user-guide along with numerous videos on YouTube that have been created by fanatical users of the software. Professional trader Caan Berry, who many of you may already be familiar with, has a few videos on his set-up on his YouTube channel.[/vc_column_text][vc_video link=”https://youtu.be/sCbVfEEv8Og” el_width=”80″ align=”center”][vc_message]Clicking the ‘?’ on any module taskbar and it will display information related to what is being displayed.[/vc_message][vc_column_text]

Pricing

The software is one of the cheapest on the market – but that is no reflection on its quality. In fact, the creator of the Geeks Toy software built it for his own personal use initially and, at the beginning, allowed other people to use it for free until they told him that he should really start charging for it. He was reluctant to do so but did in the end. What a nice guy. But when software is this great you would feel bad for not contributing to the creator.

Geeks Toy is available for £20 for 3 months or £60 for the year – which is just incredible value. You can also avail of a 14-day free trial. The Geek also runs a special one or two times throughout the year where existing customers can buy a license to the software for life – I believe this is around £120. Again, this is immense value being offered here.[/vc_column_text][vc_btn title=”Get the Free Trial” style=”3d” color=”warning” align=”center” i_align=”right” i_icon_fontawesome=”fa fa-mouse-pointer” add_icon=”true” link=”url:http%3A%2F%2Fwww.sportstradingtools.co.uk%2Fgeekstoy||target:%20_blank|rel:nofollow”][vc_column_text]

Geeks Toy on Mac and PC

Geeks Toy is only available natively on Windows PCs. However, I have been able to get it working natively on my Mac through a combination of persistence and Wine (not that type of wine, unfortunately). Wine is an open source software that facilitates the running of Windows software on a Mac.

My goal was to write up a guide for STT of how I was able to achieve this, but having tried to replicate the process months later I wasn’t able to install it and get it working. These are the links for the information I used when installing it for anyone who wants to give it a go themselves:

Installing Geeks Toy through Wine, Geeks Toy Forum: http://www.geekstoy.com/forum/showthread.php?8064-Geeks-Toy-now-runs-on-Apple-OSX&p=112540&viewfull=1#post112540
Wine Installation Instructions: https://www.davidbaumgold.com/tutorials/wine-mac/[/vc_column_text][vc_message](I will pay £25 to anyone who successfully uses Wine to install Geeks Toy on their Mac and writes down the exact notes of the process of how they done it. You can get in contact with me via email, Facebook, or Twitter to let me know you’re giving it a crack)[/vc_message][vc_column_text]As said Geeks Toy only works natively on Windows – so if you’re on a PC you have no issues. If you’re a Mac user, however, then you have two options: either install Bootcamp and Windows 10 (which is an arduous process) or attempt to install it using Wine. Unfortunately, it does not work using Parallels, or at least I couldn’t get it to.

I have installed it via both methods. You can expand the boxes below to view the pros and cons of both of my experiences:[/vc_column_text][vc_tta_accordion color=”peacoc” active_section=”” title=”Running Geeks Toy via Bootcamp”][vc_tta_section i_position=”right” i_icon_fontawesome=”fa fa-arrow-circle-up” add_icon=”true” title=”Positives” tab_id=”1496671897364-422aafa8-8b7a96e0-3b9f”][vc_message message_box_color=”alert-success” icon_type=”pixelicons” icon_pixelicons=”vc_pixel_icon vc_pixel_icon-tick”]

  • Worked without any issues once it was finally installed
  • Bootcamp is free to install as it’s a Mac application

  • It took me around 4 hours to install Bootcamp as I encountered numerous problems which I had to scour Apple forums to find the answers to
  • You must purchase Windows 10
  • Must reboot your Mac every time you want to load up Windows
  • The sound on Windows didn’t work through my Mac’s internal speakers so I had to connect it to Bluetooth to enable me to hear audio signals
  • You must allocate a portion of your hard drive (called ‘partitioning’) to Bootcamp – this takes up at least 20gb
[/vc_message][/vc_tta_section][/vc_tta_accordion][vc_tta_accordion color=”peacoc” active_section=”0″ title=”Running Geeks Toy via Wine”][vc_tta_section i_position=”right” i_icon_fontawesome=”fa fa-arrow-circle-up” add_icon=”true” title=”Positives” tab_id=”1496862663654-f037e6d7-5582″][vc_message message_box_color=”alert-success” icon_type=”pixelicons” icon_pixelicons=”vc_pixel_icon vc_pixel_icon-tick”]
  • Loads up in a matter of seconds – no restarting your Mac every time you’re preparing for a trading session
  • Free – no purchasing of Windows 10 or any virtualisation software like Parallels. Wine is open source and free
  • Could hear the software’s audio alerts
  • It’s really cool opening your Macbook and having this neat looking little software running!

  • It’s one hell of pain to install via Wine if you’re not a tech geek. I am most certainly not one but persevered until I got it working. It did take about 2-3 hours though
  • Can be quite intensive on your Mac’s resources if you have multiple markets open at one time

Final Thoughts

I love Geeks Toy. I also love using Bet Angel too. They both provide different features and functions for me and I’m happy to switch between one or the other. Geeks Toy is my favourite software for football trading due to its handiness on my Macbook but in truth I could use it for just about any sport I wanted to trade. Existing users are often fanatical about it and there’s good reason for that. If you’re new to sports trading it comes highly recommended.[/vc_column_text][vc_btn title=”Download Geeks Toy” style=”3d” color=”warning” align=”center” i_align=”right” i_icon_fontawesome=”fa fa-mouse-pointer” add_icon=”true” link=”url:http%3A%2F%2Fwww.sportstradingtools.co.uk%2Fgeekstoy||target:%20_blank|rel:nofollow”][vc_message message_box_color=”success” icon_fontawesome=”fa fa-pencil”]Top Tips

For some sports and markets you don’t necessarily need it but it does greatly help. If you were attempting to trade Horse Racing pre-race without specialised trading software then you would find it almost impossible.

Does Geeks Toy include a practice mode?

Yes.[/vc_toggle][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/3″][vc_widget_sidebar sidebar_id=”gp-sports-trading-sidebar”][/vc_column][/vc_row]

But in 2016 they decided to branch out and became one of the leading communities in the industry in their own right.

OddsMonkey is now one of the most popular communities in the industry and has made a lot of people a substantial online second income through the popular process of matched betting.[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]

How Does OddsMonkey Work?

The premise is the exact same as the other matched betting service communities out there.

As a provider, OddsMonkey teaches subscribers how to do this process through training videos and written guides. In the beginning, you will learn how to work through a string of the low-hanging fruit that is bookmaker sign-up offers from which you will make hundreds of pounds. After this, the OddsMonkey team will, on a daily basis, find and inform their members of the best value offers to be found so that you can keep profiting time and time again.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/3″][vc_cta h2=”OddsMonkey Matched Betting Service” h4=”What Edge Will It Give Me?” txt_align=”center” color=”white” add_button=”bottom” btn_title=”Visit Website” btn_style=”3d” btn_color=”warning” btn_size=”lg” btn_align=”center” btn_i_align=”right” btn_i_icon_fontawesome=”fa fa-mouse-pointer” btn_css_animation=”none” css_animation=”none” btn_button_block=”true” btn_add_icon=”true” css=”.vc_custom_1502484948361{border-top-width: 5px !important;border-right-width: 5px !important;border-bottom-width: 5px !important;border-left-width: 5px !important;background-color: #81d742 !important;border-left-color: #cecece !important;border-left-style: outset !important;border-right-color: #cecece !important;border-right-style: outset !important;border-top-color: #cecece !important;border-top-style: outset !important;border-bottom-color: #cecece !important;border-bottom-style: outset !important;border-radius: 5px !important;}” btn_link=”url:http%3A%2F%2Fwww.sportstradingtools.co.uk%2Foddsm||target:%20_blank|rel:nofollow”]

There is only one real way of beating the bookies and that’s by matched betting. OddsMonkey will teach you how to make thousands of pounds in extra income a year through a simple, proven method that has been used to outsmart the bookmakers for years. There is no better edge in betting than using a matched betting service like this.

Take action with the initial sign-up offers and you’ll have the yearly subscription made back within a week with this life-changing service.

What Ways Can I Use OddsMonkey?

I will split this section into 2 sections, ‘Getting Started’ and ‘Main Features’, as there is a lot on offer.

 Getting Started

As soon as you subscribe to OddsMonkey you get access to the following which you should complete first. These will:

  • Help you learn the process of matched betting
  • Take you through the process of the sign-up offers which are the easiest to profit from
  • Take you through Casino offers where big money can be made
  • Teach you some other tricks and tips

The Start Here Guide

This covers 4 tutorials that will teach you the very basics of matched betting and get you doing your first few matched bets. This teaches you all you need to know about why it works, how it works and how to understand certain basic terminology used in the everyday process. These come with written instructions and most come with video examples or explanations.

At the end of this section there are two guides which will take you through your first two matched bets which will make you roughly £40-45. These come with video examples so it is quite hard to put a foot wrong. This will prepare you for taking on the next string of offer where you will make hundreds of pounds.[/vc_column_text][vc_message]The Start Here Guide is provided in the free trial option, which you can avail of here. No credit card details needed.[/vc_message][vc_column_text]

50+ Bookmaker Sports Sign-Up Offers

Once you’ve got to grips with the process you have a list of bookmaker sign-up offers that you can get stuck into. In the main, these are logically ordered with the smallest value offers building up to the larger offers. They are also grouped by difficulty level and offer type, so you won’t get confused by jumping from one offer to the next that has different terms and conditions.

It’s recommended that your initial profits are reinvested into your bankroll so that you can tackle the larger offers. The more money you have, the faster you can make money. Simple.

A lot of the listed offers have video examples – quite incredible really. This will be of great benefit to those who are completely new to the concept of matched betting as some hand holding is always appreciated in the early stages.

There’s also a complete set of guides to reload offers that will be available from time to time with the bookmakers you’ve signed up to.

Throughout, you can tick ‘completed’ boxes so that the tutorial/offer is removed from the list. This is a great way of tracking your progress.

If you’ve never signed up to any of the 50+ bookmakers listed on site then there is a potential risk free profit of £1,000 awaiting you.[/vc_column_text][vc_btn title=”Make your first £1,000 now!” style=”3d” color=”warning” size=”lg” align=”center” i_align=”right” i_icon_fontawesome=”fa fa-mouse-pointer” add_icon=”true” link=”url:http%3A%2F%2Fwww.sportstradingtools.co.uk%2Foddsm||target:%20_blank|rel:nofollow”][vc_message]Sign-Up Offers: Bookmakers offer free bets upon sign up run to entice customers to choose to their site over their competitors. Nearly every one of the 100+ online bookmakers and casinos offer these meaning lots of opportunities to profit.

15+ Casino Sign-Up Offers

Again, these come with full written instructions and are laid out strategically with the risk-free and lower risk offers to be completed first. There is also a casino guide to start you off so you can understand the basics of casino offers and why and how matched bettors can extract value from them. This is a written guide and with the other sites I’ve been a member of it would have been great if there was also a video explaining this as I think it would be easier for newbies to grasp. However, I’m sure this may be something the OddsMonkey team are working on.

Bingo

There is a complete written guide to Bingo and 8 offers to take advantage of with full instructions. There are no videos in this section and I feel this would be a beneficial addition – even if it was just one example video.

Access to the Forum

With a thriving community, there is plenty of action on the website forum. Members and moderators post offers they’ve found and discuss all the details that go with it. You can ask any questions here. This is also a place where people motivate others by showing what they have achieved and what they have spent their extra money on. It’s a great place to get some inspiration… if you need any.[/vc_column_text][vc_single_image image=”972″ img_size=”full” add_caption=”yes” alignment=”center” style=”vc_box_border” onclick=”link_image” css=”.vc_custom_1495730480299{border-radius: 2px !important;}”][vc_column_text]

Main Features

After you’ve completed the initial stages so that get you familiar with the concept, matched betting service providers offer a range of tools which will help you:

  • Make long-term, consistent daily profit
  • Learn to use new techniques and strategies which will boost your profits
  • Ease you into more even more advanced methods

The features that OddsMonkey offer are:

Daily Calendar

I find that this is an important and necessary part of any service provider’s website as it allows you to truly keep a track of what reload offers you can take part in for the day and tick off which ones you have completed.

In the top right corner, members can filter what offers they’d like to see. If you wanted to only do the low-risk/guaranteed profit offers you could.

Clicking on an offer brings up instructions for how to complete it and make your profit. However, I do feel that OddsMonkey is missing a trick here with their software capabilities. On the Profit Maximiser calendar the offers have the oddsmatching software displayed underneath the instructions with the best odds relating to that specific event.[/vc_column_text][vc_message]Reload Offer: Regular promotions that bookmakers run to entice current customers return to their site over the competitions. For example, Bet365’s £50 In-Play offer.

Bet365 £50 In-Play Reload Offer

[/vc_message][vc_btn title=”Sign Up For The Free Trial” style=”3d” color=”warning” size=”lg” align=”center” i_align=”right” i_icon_fontawesome=”fa fa-mouse-pointer” add_icon=”true” link=”url:http%3A%2F%2Fwww.sportstradingtools.co.uk%2Foddsm||target:%20_blank|rel:nofollow”][vc_column_text]

Oddsmatcher Software

This form of matched betting software finds all the best value matched bets for you automatically. It pulls the odds from almost every bookie you can imagine, plus the odds from all the betting exchanges and finds which odds are the closest – this is a powerful tool for 3 reasons:

  • The closer the odds match for your qualifying bets the lower your qualifying losses. This equals more profit in the long term.
  • The closer the odds match for your free bet conversions then the higher amount you will be able to extract from the bonus. Again, this equals more profit long term.
  • It saves you from trawling through every bookmaker site and betting exchange to find the best odds matches yourself. This is one hell of a timesaver and allows users to free up their time which can be spent making more money by doing more offers.

The software on OddsMonkey looks like this:[/vc_column_text][vc_single_image image=”975″ img_size=”full” add_caption=”yes” alignment=”center” style=”vc_box_border” onclick=”link_image” css=”.vc_custom_1495730307719{border-radius: 2px !important;}”][vc_single_image image=”976″ img_size=”full” add_caption=”yes” alignment=”center” style=”vc_box_border” onclick=”link_image” css=”.vc_custom_1495730360582{border-radius: 2px !important;}”][vc_single_image image=”977″ img_size=”full” add_caption=”yes” alignment=”center” style=”vc_box_border” onclick=”link_image” css=”.vc_custom_1495730383087{border-radius: 2px !important;}”][vc_column_text]As you can see from the filter image the data can be filtered in a multitude of ways so you can find bets which fit your criteria. If you click the calculator icon to the left it’ll bring up a calculator where you can type in your stake at the bookmaker and it will fill in all the calculations for you.

As mentioned at the start OddsMonkey is the king of this kind of matched betting software as they created it and have licensed it out to a number of vendors.

August 2017 Update: OddsMonkey have now also introduced a game-changing feature called Betfair Integration. this means you can place your Betfair Exchange lay bets without even having to leave the OddsMonkey calculator – saving even more time! For more info check out their 1minute YouTube video about the new feature or read the blog on their website:[/vc_column_text][vc_video link=”https://youtu.be/GzYlQwZhhx4″ el_width=”80″ align=”center”][vc_column_text]

The Racing Matcher and The Tennis Matcher Software

My minor gripe about the calendar not displaying matches relating to the offer event is offset slightly by these two excellent pieces of kit.

This is pretty much the same as the Oddmatcher Software but filters by horse races for the current day only. With a lot of horse racing offers to be had on a daily basis this is a great time saver which finds the best odds matches for you throughout the day. This automatically updates for users.[/vc_column_text][vc_single_image image=”978″ img_size=”full” add_caption=”yes” alignment=”center” style=”vc_box_border” onclick=”link_image” css=”.vc_custom_1495730522654{border-radius: 2px !important;}”][vc_column_text]

The Eachway Matcher

This is essentially an arbing tool that is specific to Each Way bets on Horse Racing only. This is a great way to make some guaranteed profit as arbing on Each Way bets is not quite as frowned upon by the bookies as straight up arbing is.[/vc_column_text][vc_single_image image=”979″ img_size=”full” add_caption=”yes” alignment=”center” style=”vc_box_border” onclick=”link_image” css=”.vc_custom_1495730589988{border-radius: 2px !important;}”][vc_single_image image=”980″ img_size=”full” add_caption=”yes” alignment=”center” style=”vc_box_border” onclick=”link_image” css=”.vc_custom_1495730617449{border-radius: 2px !important;}”][vc_column_text]Accumulator Software

Accumulator Matched Betting is another form and is slightly more advanced. With many bookmakers offering ‘Money Back if One Team Lets You Down’ style accumulators this has become a popular money making method.

I’ll not go into too much detail about the ins and outs of it as it’s pretty much a whole system on its own, but there are full instructions and training videos available to subscribers where you can learn this advanced form. I wouldn’t recommend it for beginners, though.[/vc_column_text][vc_single_image image=”981″ img_size=”full” add_caption=”yes” alignment=”center” style=”vc_box_border” onclick=”link_image” css=”.vc_custom_1495730670900{border-radius: 2px !important;}”][vc_single_image image=”982″ img_size=”full” add_caption=”yes” alignment=”center” style=”vc_box_border” onclick=”link_image” css=”.vc_custom_1495730697041{border-radius: 2px !important;}”][vc_single_image image=”988″ img_size=”full” add_caption=”yes” alignment=”center” style=”vc_box_border” onclick=”link_image” css=”.vc_custom_1495730798004{border-radius: 2px !important;}”][vc_message]With 4 different strategies within Accumulator Software there is something to suit everyone whether you are time poor, a risk taker or someone who just wants to take the guaranteed profit. If you’re looking guaranteed profit every time I recommend the ‘Refund Lock In’ method.[/vc_message][vc_column_text]

Advanced Calculators and Spreadsheets

There are a range of Advanced Matched Betting Calculators available for those who are familiar with some advanced methods. These include:

  • EV (Expected Value/Equivalent Value) calculator
  • Each Way Calculator
  • Each Way Reverse Calculator
  • Each Way – Extra Places
  • Risk Free Equal Profit

Whilst some of these are slightly simplistic (such as the EV Calculator) it’s hard not to suggest that OddsMonkey may be gearing up to rival some other products in the industry which are targeting at a more advanced level of customer. However, this is just my own speculation.

[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]

Support and Training

Each section has detailed written instructions and a number of beginner videos to show varying examples of how each aspect of matched betting works. You shouldn’t go wrong here, but if you do, then help is always on hand through the forum where moderators and fellow members will help with any query.

If that isn’t enough you also have the option to email the team, visit a FAQ section or to even book a one to one session with the Customer Training staff. The one to one sessions are held through a video conferencing service called UberConference meaning that the two parties involved can screen share – this is a great way to help any customers with their queries.

OddsMonkey have the motto that ‘no question is a stupid question’ and this is an environment where everything is set up to help their customers succeed.[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]

Final Thoughts

OddsMonkey was one of the first sites to engineer matched betting software that allowed service providers to cut out all the hard work involved in matched betting. As such it dramatically improved the industry and made it so much easier and quicker for people to make profits. Now, as a website that is a service provider in their own right, they have created a fantastic platform which means that anyone who signs up to the service will be able to profit straight from the off.[/vc_column_text][vc_btn title=”Find Out More On OddsMonkey.com” style=”3d” color=”warning” size=”lg” align=”center” i_align=”right” i_icon_fontawesome=”fa fa-mouse-pointer” button_block=”true” add_icon=”true” link=”url:http%3A%2F%2Fwww.sportstradingtools.co.uk%2Foddsm||target:%20_blank|rel:nofollow”][pricing_table][pricing_column title=”Free” price=”Free” currency_symbol=”£” title_color=”#1e73be”]

  • It sounds simple – but start from the start and work through each stage and offer in the order presented – they are ordered this way for a reason. This will help you build up your profits quicker.
  • Do take advantage of casino offers. Many people don’t do these as they see them as ‘too much risk’. They’re not. It’s another case of maths that will favour you in the long run. If you don’t do them then you are missing out on a massive chunk of profits.

  • The site is still in its infancy compared to other services which have been around for longer, I find it hard to criticise it as I know the team are making substantial improvements as the weeks and months go by. However, if I had a nit-picking gripe it would be that it would be nice for some more videos in the sections that do not currently have enough of them – namely bingo and casino.
[/vc_message][/vc_tta_section][/vc_tta_accordion][vc_toggle title=”FAQ” size=”lg” open=”true”]What if I’ve already signed up to a load of bookmaker accounts – will the sign up offers on the site be of any use to me?

Don’t worry, there are many more listed on OM that I doubt you’ll have even heard of – the gambling industry is just that competitive. At the time of writing OM has over 50+ with instructions to each. Plus, the long-term value comes from the reload offers that bookmaker’s send you once you’re signed up to them – OM will teach you how to turn these into cash.

What’s the customer service like?

It’s hard for me to comment on this as I’ve never used it but I’ve heard and seen mainly positive feedback. If you have any experience of the OM customer service then please drop a comment below with your opinion.

What if I work full time – would I have time to complete the offers?

The majority of the offers listed are not time specific. You often have a few days to get around to doing them. Many of the people that use sites like these work full time and use them as a hobby which makes them a tidy second income.

How much can I make?

There’s no simple answer to this one – it really depends on how much time you’re willing to put in. But many members on the forum comfortably make upwards of 10k a year.

Have you any tips or advice?

Yes, take your time. Learn each piece bit by bit and grow your knowledge – this is the way to reach your maximum profit potential.

I’m afraid to tackle casino type offers… why should I do them?

Trust in the maths and it will reward you with handsome profits. See the casino and slots offers as a longer-term investment. Start off with the risk-free or smaller offers to find your comfort levels. If you haven’t already, watch this YouTube video:

With so many matched betting services it can be tough for anyone new to decide which is the best for them. In the table below I’ve picked the 3 best services currently out there.

I have been matched betting since 2014 with Profit Maximiser, but have recently tried out OddsMonkey and Profit Accumulator for a few months for the purposes of reviewing them for SportsTradingTools.co.uk

Each one of the services offers an initial profit way and beyond the initial investment made in it – there is no place on the internet that you would get these sort of returns for your initial outlay, so they are all tremendous value for money.

All 3 websites guide each user through beginner’s sections whereby you will start off learning the process of matched betting as you follow the precise instructions to complete (and profit) from the sign-up offers listed.

However, this round is a tie between Profit Accumulator and OddsMonkey for the amount of sign-up offers included and the value that can be returned from them.

The debate between about which is better – a Facebook Group or a Forum – is really down to personal preference.

The one thing I will say is that activity is a key factor here, and both Profit Accumulator and Profit Maximiser have the upper hand on this. The more activity in these communities then the more profit generated for 3 reasons:

  • People dig in and find new daily reload offers that may have been missed
  • If you post a question you’re likely to get more people helping you out or providing the answer
  • Loopholes – these can be a goldmine and the more members you have with lots of experience then the more loopholes that are going to be discovered. Loopholes generally involve an oversight or mistake by the bookmaker in their Terms and Conditions which allows matched bettors to make astronomical profits in short period of time

In my time with PM there have been numerous ones, but 4 main huge ones that got everyone in on the action:

  • 888 Genie Millionaire Genie Loophole (2014)
  • Sky Casino Roulette Loophole (2014)
  • William Hill Deal or No Deal Bank Holiday Loophole (2016)
  • Mecca Bingo Roulette Loophole (2016)

Loopholes typically last for only a few hours or days and the first matched bettors to hear of it usually make the most. I have made over £8,000 alone in the space of a few days from doing just 3 of these loopholes. Due to it being the first matched betting community of its kind, and therefore the extra experience of the members, Profit Maximiser have always been the first to discover these loopholes. That means they’re usually well rinsed by Profit Maximiser members before the other sites get wind of them.

To me, the debate about Facebook Group vs Forum is inconsequential – it’s more about what benefits the service’s community provides. Profit Maximiser wins this round for the higher chance of loophole discoveries by its more experienced members.

This is a huge aspect to consider when deciding which service to go with as this is how you make consistent profits all year round.

As you’d expect from all matched betting services, these 3 all post new reload offers daily, this is the bare minimum their subscribers expect. However, this need to be done in a way that their members can:

  • Easily see which new offers have been posted and, at a quick glance, see which are the most profitable opportunities to focus on for the day
  • Have the ability to plan ahead for the next couple of days. This is crucial during the big horse racing festivals like Cheltenham and Aintree where there are piles of offers on for 3-4 days in a row
  • Keep a track of what offers they have completed through a ‘tick box’

The advantage Profit Maximiser has here is that you can see everything for the current day in one glance and then see what else in coming up in the next few days – allowing you to consider where you time is best spent for the best hourly return for your efforts (yes – many matched bettors have this level of organisation down to a tea!)

I find it strange Profit Accumulator doesn’t have a calendar as it makes it a right pain to have to go through the forum and finds the offers that are on that day.

Profit Maximiser wins this round due to its daily mode and monthly overview calendar. Profit Accumulator doesn’t even have a calendar and OddsMonkey has a calendar that can only be viewed in a daily mode.

Matched Betting Software and Tools

  1. These speed up the process by doing tasks that would normally have to be done manually. For example, Oddsmatching software which scans the prices of both the bookmaker and the exchange to automatically find the best value bets with the lowest qualifying losses.
  2. There are advanced (or specialist) versions of Oddsmatching software which find profit within a specific markets/bet types. For example, Accumulator software which finds the best value accumulators and helps provides all necessary calculations to aid the user in making a profit.

Profit Accumulator and OddsMonkey both have a distinct advantage over PM here. There are 2 main tools included in their membership packages that come as separate upgrades with Profit Maximiser. With PA and OddsM you get access to Matched Betting Software (a software which finds the best value bets for users to take) and Accumulator Software (which allows you to profit from accumulator matched betting). These both come as optional upgrades/add ons with PM.

However, the winner is OddsMonkey. The reasons being that, before it was a matched betting service provider, OddsMonkey created the original Oddsmatching software and then licensed its use out to the likes of Profit Accumulator and Profit Maximiser.

Profit Accumulator and OddsMonkey came into disagreement in 2016 when OddsMonkey decided it was going to compete with Profit Accumulator by turning into a fully-fledged service provider. This has caused Profit Accumulator to source/create their own new software and a quick google search shows that quite a few of their customers complained about the disruption this caused. They are still testing new software in beta mode.

For this reason, it’s hard not to give it to OddsMonkey. Their software will always be reliable and they will always be ahead of the game in this department compared to their competitors as they have the resources, skills and experience.

Arguably one of the least important aspects when choosing a matched betting service – but a good, clean and easy to navigate website is something people expect in this digital age.

OddsMonkey and Profit Accumulator verge on looking exactly like each other, as you may have seen from the screenshots included in this comparison. Both have a sleek user interface which is a pleasant experience for anyone to navigate around and use. Content is easy to find and software is nice looking on the eye and easily usable.

Profit Maximiser had a recent update at the beginning of 2017 but this was much needed – it still doesn’t bring it up to the standards of its competitors though.

The result is a draw between OddsM and PA as they both have stellar looking websites that are easy to navigate for any user.

I know it’s hard to see when you haven’t signed up to any of the services yet, but the subscription prices of each one doesn’t really matter too much. Once you get into their member’s areas and start to accumulate the profits on offer then the annual subscription fee will become insignificant and one that you will be more than happy to pay at the beginning of every year.

The return you can make on this small initial investment throughout one year is truly astronomical.

If you are not convinced the process works then try the no-obligation free trials which will get you making your first £45 – this will allow you to see that the process of matched betting really does work for real.
