How I Found My Second Team Matched Betting On Football
August 22, 2016
I’ve supported the same club since I was six-years-old but this season I found my second team when matched betting on football. My interest in the Football League Championship has been aroused thanks to 888sport’s Goals Mean More promotion. I opted in at the start of the season and now I’m cheering on Brentford as my second team.
Each time I place a £20 bet on a Brentford league game this season 888sport will give me a £5 free bet for every goal they score. Using matched betting, I lose between 0.50p and £1 when placing a qualifying bet and wait for the goals to come. I’ve also set Brentford as a favourite on my live score app so I can stay up to date with the action during their games. It probably makes me a mercenary supporter but hopefully staunch Bees’ fans won’t mind too much.
So far Brentford have played four games and scored four goals, netting £20 free bets which have been converted into a little over £15 cash. With 46 league games to be played over the course of the season, this offer alone could go half-way to paying for a season ticket at Griffin Park.
The promotion is open to enter until December 31 so there is plenty of time to get involved and use matched bets to make a couple of hundred profit. You’re given the choice of four Championship teams sponsored by 888sport; Brentford, Birmingham, Nottingham Forest or Preston and you make your choice when opting in from the promotion page.

Not having ties to any of the clubs, I looked at the record of each team for the last two seasons and went with the Bees because they had scored over 70 goals in each of the last two seasons. Fingers crossed, they’ll have another similarly productive campaign which could net over £350 in free bets for an expected outlay of around £40.
If you are considering alternatives to Brentford, Forest have started with a bang this time with an average of two goals per game after four matches. They had an indifferent season last term scoring 43 goals but found the net 71 times during the previous season.
Birmingham have scored four goals to date and scored 53 and 54 in the two previous seasons while Preston are on three goals after four games having recorded 45 goals on their return to the Championship last season.
The most difficult part of this promotion is deciding which team to pledge your allegiance. However one thing is for certain, you will earn a profit even if they don’t score every week.
Matched betting is not only a great way to make money online but also gives us added interest in the sports we love.
