A sustainable way to make money online thanks to Bet365.com
This information is provided for you for free.
We are not going to patronise you with any suggestions of making millions (but you can easily make ¬£1000‚Äôs a year) and we are going to get straight to the point. We will try and explain all here but if you need more info please visit www.cash-matters.com. People familiar with this concept will be aware that this strategy can be developed further in order to make a higher profit. These additional strategies will be discussed on the site.
This may sound complicated but believe me it is worth taking some time to get your head around it.
Right, for those who don‚Äôt know, you can make guaranteed money from free bets that bookmakers offer. You don‚Äôt need to know a thing about betting and basic terms are found on the site.
This system takes advantage of a certain bookmaker called Bet365. They currently have an offer where, on certain horse races, they will give you another free bet if you win. By covering all options at the same time you can actually come out with a profit no matter what the result of the race.
You will need to sign up with Bet365 and Betfair. You may wish to join Betdaq which will further assist you in the following process
Click here to take you to the correct sites
When you are in Bet365 look at the left hand side. Follow the link under Promotions and see ‚Äėcurrent offers‚Äô and then selct the 4/1 offer in the new page. This will show you the next races that you can use to get your free bet. Identfy a race and then find the same race on Betfair. Tip ‚Äď convert all betting odds to decimals.
Now, look for a horse which has odds as close to 5 as possible but not less than 5. Now place a bet of ¬£50 on the horse on Bet365 (if you are trying this for the 1st time then you are able to place a as little as ¬£2 - ¬£50 is just the maximum). Place a Lay bet of ¬£63 on using Betfair. To work out how much lay bet to place multiply the Back bet amount by 1.26.
Right, here are the two outcomes…
1. If your horse loses (which it is more than likely to) you will win at Betfair in the region of about ¬£60 but lose your stake of ¬£50 at Bet365 and therefore have a little profit. Repeat this process over and over again and you will make a fair bit over the next year. Repeat the process for friends and you will make more !
2. If our horse wins you will win about ¬£200 at Bet365 but lose ¬£252 at Betfair BUT you will have won a free ¬£50 bet and therefore come out about even. To ensure that you don‚Äôt lose when you use the free bet (you have to use it on the next race that Bet365 feature in the process) repeat step one i.e. back with the free bet on any horse and lay it off at Betfair.
This document is not designed to be a detailed instruction on how to do this. If you have any questions or queries then please visit cash-matters.com where any question that you have will be answered.
The cricket makes for a fantastic opportunity to make some extra money.
The UK is ‚Äėblessed‚Äô rainy weather. When it rains you can make some money !!
When the rain starts place a back bet on the draw in a cricket game. I have found that the best odds are usually found with the bigger bookmakers such as Bet365, boylesports, bluesquare or Coral. ( the other reason for this is that if they see you betting with them they will more likely give you another reload when you stop).
As the rain falls the odds for the draw will drop. The more the rain falls the more the odds will drop.
As the rain finishes then it is time to lock in the profit. Place a lay bet on the draw ( the odds will be less than the back now). To find out how much to lay just use the calculator as you would do so normally.
Now sit back and wait for the game to finish. What ever the result you will have made some extra cash.
I thank you !!
Mike Smith is a professional punter and has been betting on Betfair‚Äôs Financial markets since the beginning of 2004, mainly trading the FTSE intraday markets. To coincide with the launch of a new range of Betfair Financial Markets we asked Mike to give a few pointers and look at some of the tools required to complement a successful financial trading strategy…
When I tell people that I trade the financial markets on Betfair successfully, I get a variety of reactions. A common reply is along the lines of: ‚ÄėThat sounds interesting, I might have a look at that myself‚Äô. This implies that people believe trading these markets is something that can be picked up easily.
To be fair I can understand the logic of this reaction as I can almost hear people thinking ‚ÄėIf he can do it, it can‚Äôt be that difficult!‚Äô However as anybody who has done it will tell you, trading the FTSE intraday markets is like riding a big rollercoaster ‚Äď exhilarating and gut wrenching in equal measure.
To be successful requires a clear strategy that has been tested over time and approaching them without one is a shortcut to the poor house. Alongside your strategy, you also need to have a suite of information that can help you put that strategy into action. Below are a few websites containing resources that can be used in conjunction with your own strategy in the quest for profit.
The first and most obvious requirement is for up to date prices of the underlying market (in my case the FTSE 100 index). Streaming prices can be obtained through subscription sites such as advfn.com or moneyam.com. These sites provide a wealth of information and costs vary depending on the level of information required. Alternatively, Yahoo provides free live FTSE and Dow Jones prices. These are static but can be used in conjunction with an automatic browser refresher to give continuously updated prices.
If you are serious about playing the financial markets, you will need (at the very least) a basic understanding of Technical Analysis (TA) and an excellent introduction can be found at incademy.com. I find TA to be a significant tool in predicting longer term movements of the market but less suited to the short-term intraday markets. However I do calculate simple resistance/support levels using pivot points to indicate possible market reversals. A good explanation of pivot points can be found at investopedia.com.
The FTSE can (and does) spike up or down due to outside influences that are almost impossible to predict. However there are times when sharp movements are a reaction to the release of economic figures. If you want to avoid being on the wrong end of a swing in sentiment it is vital to be aware of the release times of these figures. I use the free financial diary at moneyam.com/marketdiary.php which gives US and Euro Zone as well as UK information.
Using the above resources will provide a number of weapons to your armoury but will not bring instant success. Research and discipline are key components of a successful strategy and nothing can replace time spent trading. Learning expensive lessons is par for the course and it is advisable to start off trading at minimum amounts until you are comfortable with the dynamics of the market you are trading.
If you do get it right and devise a successful strategy, the rewards can be great and with the recent introduction of new Betfair markets (including individual FTSE shares, Intraday Dow Jones and currencies) there is the chance to get involved and establish your strategies as the markets grow in popularity. If you can find an ‚Äėedge‚Äô in one of those markets then you could, with discipline and hard work, be on your way to profitable trading!
After all, ‚ÄėIf he can do it, it can‚Äôt be that difficult!‚Äô

Dutching will be a different concept for most newbies to match betting. It is not for complete beginners.
Lay bets cover the ‚Äúto not win‚ÄĚ scenario. Dutching is similarly back betting on every possible outcome. If you were to back bet on a football game I‚Äôm sure you can see that 3 bets will be required to cover all the possibilities, Team A win, Team B win or the draw (3 way dutch).
More than ‚Äútwo way‚ÄĚ dutches are for the more advanced money makers out there, so for this reason I am only going to talk about the 2 way dutches. This is where there will be only 2 outcomes, red card/no red card for the footie as opposed to win, lose, draw as above. 2 bets needed just as in back and lay ‚Äď simple!
You will instantly see that 2 way dutching is perfect for tennis.
If you already have accounts at many bookies this could be a golden arb opportunity. Alternatively if you are looking to complete free bets on the tennis but your chosen bookie has different retirement terms to betfair this could also be good for you.
No exchange commission (unless you are using the exchanges of course!)
Offers that can’t be laid at exchanges due to rule differences (the tennis)
Doing two wager requirements at two bookies simultaneously without needing an exchange.
Good early odds that will be cut by the time the BF market gets going.
2 bets are required at bookmakers - it’s usually not possible to know for sure that all your bets will be accepted.
Odds changing - as more bookies are involved, there’s more chance that the odds will get cut while you’re placing your bets, especially if you’re taking a tip from a betting forum. Also, if a bookie cuts odds, they properly cut them, exchanges just drift down a little bit.
You should always have a back-up option if you cant get your chosen bet on, so you can quickly adjust your position for a minimal loss rather than having to gamble. This should be as simple as having a second bookie in mind.
You will need a dutching calc. Luckily there is one on the FEM automatcher to be found as a sticky in a thread not far from here. You will also find a reference tool here Dutching odds, which is most useful when starting out as to what makes good dutching odds. The odds in bold are to be compared against the set next to it as a minimum for a dutch. E.g.you will instantly be able to grasp that if Henman is playing Federer and both players are quoted at odds of 2.0, this is a no loss dutch. If you were qualifying for free bets with 2 different bookies, you are now quids in. What will happen however is that both players will be at different odds eg. A is at 1.9 and the odds for B will need to be a minimum of 2.11 ‚Äď if they are higher this is an arb ‚Äď any less and you lose a little ‚Äď just as in back and lay minor odds differences.
Have a look at the dutching odds spreadsheet and play around with the dutching calc. Dont forget you are betting on both players to win but at different bookies.
If you want to bet on the tennis you also need the rules to be the same at both sets of bookies.
ADVICE where rules differ:
to minimise potential losses and maximise potential gains:
- bet on outsiders at bookies where bets are more likely to stand (eg no1 ball served),
- and favourites at bookies where bets are more likely to be voided (eg no4 match completed)
1. Ball Served
In the event of a match starting but not being completed, the player progressing to the next round will be deemed the winner:
2. Set Completed
In the event of a match being awarded to a player before the full number of sets have been played, match bets will stand on the player officialy going through to the next round, provided at least one (1) set has been played:
3. Two Sets Completed
In the event of a match being awarded to a player before the full number of sets have been played, match bets will stand on the player officialy going through to the next round, provided at least two (2) sets have been played:
4. Match Completed
In the event of a match starting but not being completed, all match bets will be void:
Bet365 (specifically says unless a player is disqualified rather than injured)
As ever these lists cannot be deemed to be totally accurate. Bookies can and do change their offers and rules frequently (to catch out the unwary?). Neither FEM or I can be held accountable for any inaccuracies. The best advice is check the terms yourself to be doubly sure. Please feel free to post any additions/inaccuracies here and I will update this page
