6. Enhanced multiples – layable
William Hill Super Odds Treble – Man Utd, Watford and Leeds all to win @ 6/1 (7.0)
Skybet Soccer Saturday Price Boost – Liverpool, Man Utd and West Ham all to win @ 5/1 (6.0)
- Place the enhanced multiple,
- Then lay at the exchange to lock-in a profit [on Betfair search for “Football Saturday ACCA”, on Smarkets look under “Football>Accumulators”)
7. Enhanced multiples – advantage play
Certain mulitiples bets have no option to hedge the risk by laying at the exchange.
No problem when you know the back odds are higher than the implied lay odds.
All prices are subject to change as the bookies accept liabilities to a certain level.
Examples of advantage play multiples:
- Grosvenor Sports – Liverpool, Man Utd and Chelsea all to win @ 4.0.
- Grosvenor Sports – Real Madrid, Athletic Madrid and Valencia all to win @ 8.0.
- Mr.Green – Man Utd, Liverpool and Watford all to win @ 2.75 [same boost available at Betsafe]
- Only bet on positive expected value (EV+) enhanced multiples.
- Multiply the lay odds of each selection and compare to the back odds. For example, the 188bet treble above is 106% EV at the time of writing: Napoli (1.96 to lay) x Tottenham (1.77) x Man City = 4.09.
- Then, divide the back price of 4.35 by the combined lay odds of 4.09 equals 1.06 (x100) gives the 106% figure.
8. Betfred price boosts
Betfred offer enhanced odds throughout the week.
Price boosts are available at midday during midweek. Also, from 0930 every Saturday morning.
- Check the Betfred price boosts.
- Place the arb at Betfred, then lay off at the exchange.
Hint: Betfred might restrict your liability on singles, so put your selections in +EV doubles or multiples.
9. Free bet clubs
You need to opt-in before placing bets for most weekly bet clubs.
I’ve detailed the minimum odds for qualifying bets. Free bets are usually credited by Monday.
Skybet: Opt-in, then bet Â£25 at odds of 2.0 or higher. You will receive a Â£5 free bet.
Paddy Power: Opt-in, bet 5 x Â£10 at 1.50, get Â£10 free get.
Unibet: Opt-in, place five Â£10 in-play bets at odds of 2.00 or higher to earn a Â£10 in-play free bet. (ensure that your qualifying bets are on either tennis, cricket, darts or basketball).

12. Betfred DDHH
Double Delight/Hat-trick Heaven (DDHH) is simple. Place a bet in the First Goalscorer market at Betfred. If your selection scores first, then a second goal, you’ll get paid at double the odds. If your player scores a third goal – Betfred will payout treble the odds.

13. Paddy Power money back
Refund on losing bets if a specific outcome occurs.
For example, “refund if team A beat team B”.
- The offer applies to selected markets: first goalscorer, correct score, anytime goalscorer, and WhatOddsPaddy
- Maximum free bet refund is Â£10 per customer
- This offer is available online and in shops
- Opt-in, then place a qualifying bet on one of the selected markets
- Lay off at the exchange
- If the refund triggers (e.g team A win the match) you will receive a free bet up to Â£10
- Use your free bet as SNR
14. Low-risk casino offers
Low-risk casino offers are not risk-free. Unlike traditional matched betting, you need to accept some risk to make a profit.
A typical low-risk offer might be:
- “Bet Â£10 on slot games to earn 10 free spins”.
You might be up or down after spending Â£10 on slots. However, the free spins give a mathematical advantage over the bookie in the long-term.
The idea is to focus on the long-term outcome across many offers.
15. Horse extra places
Youâ€™ll often see extra place offers on big horse racing meetings. On Saturday 19th January 2019, William Hill paid 5 places on the 10-runner 2.25 Ascot race.
Paddy Power offers daily extra place races. Expect 4 or 5 places at 1/5 odds each-way in 11+ runner races.
16. SportNation – First Five Early Payout
If your team scores first in the first 5 minutes (until 4.59 on the game clock), get paid as a winner regardless of the match result.
- Selected football matches
Cash winnings get credited within 24 hours.
- Opt-in, then place a qualifying bet on either team to win in the Match Odds (1×2) market up to Â£1,000. Bets on the draw do not qualify.
- Lay off your selection in the Match Odds market at the exchange
- If your team scores up to 04.59 on the match clock but doesn’t win, both SportNation and the exchange payout as a winner.
17. Bet365 racing refund
See Bet365 4/1 offer guide for full details.
Live ITV races and certain feature races qualify for the offer. Back a winner at 4/1 or higher, get a risk-free bet on the next race.
A popular promotion, especially on televised horse racing.
18. Virtual sports
The Virtual Grand National showed the popularity of virtual sports.
The bookies try to entice customers to bet on virtual events. Matched bettors can exploit this. Look out for potential offers such as:
- “Bet Â£5 on virtual sports to earn a Â£5 free bet”
It’s not possible to lay virtual bets at the exchange. ‘Advantage playâ€™ (no lay) your qualifying bet because you’ll earn a Â£5 free bet anyway.
19. Betting shop arbitrage
This requires a bit more effort than online matched betting.
Get active and visit the retail betting shops. Our shop arbitrage guide details how to do sharbing.
20. ACCA insurance
Accumulator insurance is a nifty little promotion.
- Place an accumulator bet with 5 (or more) selections.
- The bookie will a refund (as a free bet) your bet stake if one selection loses.
