Last time, we gave you some of our top matched betting tips. Hopefully, they provided you with some useful advice on how start matched betting. But before you jump in at the deep end, here are five more matched betting tips to help you on your way:
- Don’t gamble!
One of the key matched betting tips you’ll hear is ‘matched betting isn’t gambling’. And it’s true, matched betting involves betting on every possible outcome, so you can’t lose. However, sometimes you might be occasionally be tempted to gamble - maybe your favourite team is playing or you've seen a tip you like the sound of. There’s nothing wrong with the occasional small wager here and there (see below), but don’t get tempted by the flashing lights and advertising. Matched betting is all about staying in control.
- Avoid being ‘gubbed’
‘Gubbing’ is a term used by matched bettors when a bookie restricts their account. If you’re gubbed, you can’t take advantage of promotions or special offers. Essentially, the bookmaker has tracked your account and worked out that you’re a matched bettor. It’s a sometimes unavoidable hazard of matched betting, but the occasional small wager (‘mug bet’) can help make you look like a normal bettor.
- Set up a separate bank account and email address
This might sound a tad extreme, but separating your matched betting activity form the rest of your banking and email activity is a smart move. You’re going to get hundreds of emails from bookies and there’s going to be a lot of money going in and out of your bank account. Having it all in one place that’s separate from the rest of your life makes it a lot easier to follow.
- Join a matched betting site
You could try and do matched betting on your own, but unless you’re a maths genius and have a serious amount of time on your hands, you’re going to struggle. Luckily, there are sites such as OddsMonkey and Profit Accumulator out there to do the hard work for you. For a small subscription fee, these sites will help you find the best matched betting offers and calculate how you can make the most money from them.

Having your profits outlined in one place also helps you look at where you are making the most money. This can be useful in helping you decide which offers to do in the future.
