My Matched Betting Story

Society expects young people to know exactly what they want to do and to go out and do it. This isn’t necessarily realistic though and like many 21 year olds, I’m still trying to find my way in the world.

A few months ago I lost my job at a sport and fitness store, told I wasn’t required and that tough business decisions had to be made. As a university student unable to claim student allowance, this 25-30 hour a week part-time job was my only source of income. This left me in a vulnerable and challenging position as to what I should do next.

How I Found Matched Betting

Matched betting is a concept I became aware of just before I lost my job. At that time though I didn’t have the time to fully commit to the concept given work and university commitments. Since then it has become an integral part of my life as my only source of income, becoming a fun way to earn more money than I was previously earning at the part-time job.

What I Have Learn’t Doing Matched Betting

Matched betting goes way further than just increasing the money in your bank account though. It has drastically improved my mathematics skills given that working with and multiplying numbers is perhaps the most crucial aspect. I was previously a traditional punter, risking dollars and dealing with the anxiety and stress that comes with that. Matched Betting gives you psychological freedom and lets you enjoy sport whilst still cheering for a particular result.

Once someone understands matched betting and the processes involved, I find it difficult to ascertain how it could possibly be seen as sceptical. Most advertised online money making techniques ask you to invest money in order to possibly make money. Although Matched Betting still asks this, there is little risk of losing this money. Ultimately that’s what matched betting is about.

What Sports I Focus On

The three sporting events I focus on are AFL, NRL and Horse Racing. To a lesser extent I also match bet on soccer and tennis whilst I look forward to potential NBA promos once the season rolls around. The great thing about matched betting is that, although knowledge on specific sports is beneficial, it isn’t a necessity.

What’s My Profit Target?

My profit target at the moment is about $700 a week but this may reduce now that the AFL and NRL home and away seasons have come to and end. It’s impossible to determine how much profit you will actually make but there’s no doubt that the more time you spend on it, the more you will make.

My Advice For Starters

My biggest piece of advice for new matched bettors would be to research and digest as much information as you can, matched betting is evolving and there are always new techniques and strategies you can learn about.
