Matched Betting Calculator
We are making this matched betting calculator available free of charge and you can use it to work out the ideal lay stakes when matched betting whether placing a qualifying bet in order to earn free bets later or to lock in a profit when using your free bets.
Use the betting calculator to work out how much to lay off against a bet made with a bookmaker. This free betting calculator is one of the most important tools in matched betting and is used to ensure you make the same profit or loss whatever the outcome.
The free bet calculator features a drop down with three options:
- Normal Bet – used when placing a qualifying bet or when placing an arb.
- Freebet – used when placing a free bet where the stake is not returned.
- Bonus – used when placing a free bet or bonus where the stake is returned.
Our free matched betting calculator provides added functionality with four advanced modes:
- Normal – default setting used to calculate the same profit or loss whatever the outcome
- Overlay – used to calculate the lay amount required to finish level on the exchange after commission when wanting to bias the win/loss with the bookmaker.
- Underlay – used to calculate the lay amount required to finish level with the bookmaker when wanting to bias the win/loss with the exchange.
- Custom – used to calculate the various outcomes when entering your own lay values.
