How Football In Italy And Spain Will Boost Matched Betting Profits
August 16, 2016
The Premier League kick off last weekend gave us a few new money making opportunities but starting in the next two weeks, football in Germany, Italy and Spain should boost our matched betting profits dramatically.
William Hill’s Offer Club, along with 888sport‘s Goals Mean More and Free Bet Saturday’s, provide the opportunity to pick up free bets of £5-£10 each week for the rest of the season. In addition to its free bet Club, Sky Bet’s weekly football Accumulator price boost is usually a quick and easy way to make an extra £3-£4. Paddy Power has also introduced a new season-long money back offer, free bet if your team is losing at half-time which will make a nice profit, although it’s not guaranteed every week.
These money making opportunities are very welcome, however Acca Insurance remains the pick of football offers, simply because of the widespread availability of this type of promotion. The potential refund for having just one loser can be leveraged to make a profit from the bets and with a dozen or more bookmakers providing Acca Insurance, those profits can stack up very quickly.
The way to make money from accumulators is by finding closely matched bets at low odds, as near as possible to the minimum odds in the offer terms and conditions. This can generate typical profits of around 20% of the accumulator stake, whether the refund is hit or not. Maximum stakes for the offer vary from £25 to £50 and with most bookmakers allowing at least one offer per day, the earnings can be very rewarding.
Most bookmakers restrict Acca Insurance to English and Scottish football and allow the top division of major European countries such as France, Germany, Italy and Spain. It can be a challenge finding enough low odds favourites every week from British leagues but once clubs like PSG, Bayern Munich, Dortmund, Juventus, Napoli, Roma, Barcelona and Real Madrid are brought into the mix, opportunities to find 5 or 6 short priced favourites are greatly improved.
Football purists may criticise European Leagues for being one or two-horse races but it suits matched betting just fine as it tends to ensure plenty of ‘good things’ most weeks. La Liga (20th August) and Serie A (19th August) get underway this weekend, and the Bundesliga follows suit one week later. It means we should find it much easier to line up a portfolio of accumulators with the potential to generate over £100 profit on a good week, more for those of you who want to take every opportunity available.
