Matched betting tips: 2up offers

2up offers are very popular amongst matched bettors. They are a great way of making regular small wins and occasionally large ones. Our latest matched betting tip looks at how you can profit from the offer.

What is a 2up?

A 2up is an early payout made by some bookmakers on football games. You place a bet on a team winning and if they go two goals ahead at any point, you are paid out as a winner regardless of what happens in the rest of the game. 


How can you profit from a 2up offer?

Find a close match for an eligible football game, place your bet and lay it at a betting exchange.

If the side you have bet on goes two-nil up, the bookmaker pays you out as a winner. At this point you have three options: 


  1. Do nothing: Just let the bet ride out. If the losing side comeback and either draw or win the game, you’ve landed an excellent profit. Not only have you been paid out at the bookies, but your bet will also have won at the exchange. 

  1. Trade out: If you trade out of your bet at the exchange, you will be able to lock in a small profit. The size of this profit will vary depending on the two teams and the way the game is going. If the winning side are fortunate to be two up, then you’ll probably be able to lock in a larger profit than if they were dominating the game. Sites such as Oddsmonkey have calculators that allow you to work out your profit.

  1. Wait: If you don’t want to just take a small profit, you can wait and see if the losing side gets a goal back. This will greatly increase the value of trading out. Alternatively, at this point, you may decide to just let the bet ride out and hop for a full turnaround.


So what’s the best option?

There’s no solid answer to this. Teams that go two up win over 90% of the time, so clearly locking in a small profit will lead to a lot more victories. However, it means you miss out on potentially huge wins. It often comes down to the individual match and whether you think a comeback is possible.


Who should I bet on?

Obviously, the favourites are more likely to go 2up, but that does not necessarily make them the best option. Trading out of short odds teams leads to very small profits, whilst the likelihood of a comeback is also very small.

Betting on the underdog decreases your chances of getting an early payout, but if it does occur then there’s a much better chance of the favourite mounting a comeback.


Where can I place a 2up bet?

The two bookmakers that offer the most 2up offers are PaddyPower and Bet365. Whilst PaddyPower only offer 2ups on Premier League, La Liga and Champions League games, Bet365 also extend the offer to domestic cup games, Serie A, Bundesliga and Europa League games. You may also find variants of the offer, such as 14up for NFL or rugby union games.


Conclusion

2up offers are well worth doing. You can often find very low qualifying losses and sides go two up on a regular basis. The dilemma is whether to trade out or let it ride - have fun!
