Matched Betting Time vs Earnings

“How should I be productive doing Matched betting and how much can I realistically expect to make from it?”

These are questions I get asked very frequently by people who are thinking about starting Matched Betting.

So, I have decided to write a blog on this so you can decide for yourself whether Matched Betting is for you and to make your life easier when starting out so that you can be more organised and productive.

I have been doing Matched Betting for over 3 years now and like most people I assumed one did the signup offers and that was the end of the Matched Betting profits! 

The truth is there are plenty of ways to make money off the constant reload offers bookies keep throwing our way. You just need to know how to take advantage of these offers and how to get long term value out of them.

Matched Betting Will Not Make You Super Rich!

Matched Betting will not create millionaires, that’s just a plain fact.

But it does have the potential to add an easy second income to anyone willing to give it the needed time and effort. Plus it’s a lot of fun along the way!

Your earnings per hour at the end of the day are extremely good value. All you need is a bit of planning and you only need to spend a few hours a week physically doing any Matched Betting.

How To Approach Matched Betting

Matched Betting is basically running a side business and that’s the way it should be seen. It’s something one can do as a hobbie on weekends, days off or in between normal working hours.

The time you dedicate to Matched Betting will be rewarded with making steady profits, so why not plan how you will go about your daily / weekly routine?

By planning properly, you will save a lot of time so you need to firstly decide how much extra time you have that you can dedicate to Matched Betting. 

Below I have created a table showing time vs earnings if all reload offers are done correctly. These figures are based on myself personally, and will obviously be different per person, but it’s a good estimate to use!

Time allocated / week Profits / Month $ / Hour Suggested Matched Betting Days
1 Hour $350 $87.50 Saturdays
2-3 hours $600 $60 Saturdays & Sundays
3-5 Hours $800 $50 Wednesdays, Saturdays & Sundays
6-8 Hours $1000 $40 Wednesdays, Fridays, Saturdays & Sundays
10-15 Hours $1500 $35 Every day of the week

As you can see your actual earnings per hour is of good value. The goal at the end of the day is to be as productive as possible and not having to spend endless hours in front of your laptop tryng to place a mere few bets.

So How Can You Be a More Productive Matched Bettor?

  1. Firstly, decide how much time you want to allocate to Matched Betting?
  2. Make sure your Betfair account has enough cash at all times to cover all liabilty.
  3. Plan ahead! I normally write down exactly everything I want to cover in the next 24-48 hours.
  4. Use a desktop computer / laptop. I have 2 screens to make viewing bookie and exchange tabs easier. This also allows me to find matches extremely quickly.
  5. Ask if you need assistance! Get on live chat or onto the forum and get social!
