25 summer matched betting strategies
Hello and welcome to a quick summary of 25 summer matched betting strategies.
The action continues after another frantic season of football.
Try some of these matched betting techniques to enhance your profits.
1. William Hill – enhanced odds
Scan your William Hill Plus card on the in-shop Self-service betting terminal to reveal price boosts.
For example, enhanced odds on a first goalscorer. For example:
- Dortmund to win by 3 or more goals at 4/1 (5.0 decimal).
- Lay Dortmund -3 at 4.0 in the “Dortmund +3” handicap market on Betfair.
2. Paddy Power – Best Odds Guaranteed
Paddy offers Best Odds Guaranteed on all UK and Irish horse racing bets from 0800 hrs on the day of race.
Great for no risk matched betting with a chance of extra profit.
3. Independent bookmakers
Check out your local independent bookie shop. Smaller operators that have often have useful promos on horses and golf extra places, plus price boosts on all sports.
Look for the likes of Jenningsbet, Dave Pluck, and Chisholmbet.
4. Accumulator insurance
Head to the retail betting shops for a refund if one selection loses in your accumulator bet.
Betfred, Ladbrokes (Grid Card only), Paddy Power all have accumulator insurance coupons for midweek and weekend football.
5. Betfred Pushes
Try Betfred retail shops for Fred’s pushes every Saturday morning from 0930-1100 hrs.
This is a great summer matched betting strategy in the absence of football.
Horse racing boosts predominate, but Fred likes to push golf outright, football ante-post outrights and anything in between.
Do not bet £100 on every boost, or you may get restricted to SP only.
6. Betfair Exchange Odds On
At least one race everyday and across the whole card on Saturdays – back a horse at 4.00+ odds on Betfair exchange for a refund if it trades at 1.99 or lower and loses.
One of the easier horse racing offers still about.
7. Joejennings Telebet WhatsApp
Boosts and promo specials via the WhatsApp betting service.
Prices aren’t published in advance, so expect the average price on Oddschecker as a benchmark.
8. Coral Connect and specials
Coral are keen to get punters in to shops.
My local Coral has a free bet collector card: bet 5 x £25 for a £25 free bet.
They also offer free coffee and biscuits.
9. Paddy Power money back
Refund offers on football and horse racing.
Also look out for in shop Super Enhanced specials – available for 60 seconds at random times in the day.
10. Sports trading
A more advanced technique.
I’ve been backing enhanced multiples on the exchanges. I can back at EV+ prices, as the plentiful matched betting will just want to get their lays matched.
I leave these EV+ back bets as a small mug stake or trade out if the opportunity arises.
11. Ladbrokes shops free bet offers
The £2 FOBT stake restrictions will possibly lead to promos to encourage money over the counter.
Refund if a draw on football could be on offer for big matches.
Also, Best Odds Guaranteed with the Grid card on selected meetings each day.
12. Gamesys free games
Starspins, Heart Bingo, Monopoly Casino, Jackpotjoy and Virgin Games.
Free daily spins to win free spins.
Also, low wagering to enter prize draws for box bonanza prizes.
13. Dutching middles
Dutch between two bookie bets in an attempt towin both sides of the bet if the middle hits.
For example, an NBA basketball match total points market:
- under 201.5 @ 1.99
- and over 197.5 @ 1.98 can be dutched for minimal loss.
If between 198 and 201 points are scored – you win both bets!
14. Betting shop arbitrage
Try some shop arbitrage betting. Get checking those football 1×2, overs/unders and all coupons for arbitrage opportunities.
See the Sharbing guide for more details.
15. Sign-up with Football Index
Via Footy Index Scout, deposit and buy £25 worth of shares, then claim a £50 bonus. Leave your £75 invested for at least one week, then withdraw.
16. Rotate between accounts
Vary your matched betting patterns between different accounts to try to avoid gubbings.
17. William Hill Games
Daily low-risk games offers like bet X amount to get a bonus. The bonus will have a wagering requirement, but these offers are still positive expected value.
18. Free competitions
Free tickets for horse racing competitions (William Hill Lucky 7, Betway 4 to win, ColossusBets, Matchbook).
Bookmaker jackpot offers details the regular freeplay opportunities.
19. Arbitrage betting
Keep an eye on markets via Oddschecker, Betfair Exchange and OddsMonkey Oddsmatcher for arbitrage opportunities.
20. Betfred Goals Galore Bonus
Both teams to score trebles @ 9/2 online and in shops. Odds of 5.50 is usually positive expected value for this bet.
21. Wiliam Hill shops free vouchers
Visit your local Hills shop. They often run promotions such as ‘Bet say £10 on a coupon, get free play slot machines’.
Also look out for free tournaments to win free spins.
22. Paddy Power horse racing extra places (daily)
Extra places galore across several races – available both online and in Paddy Power shops.
Lots of value to be picked up in your local Paddy.
23. Corbettsports specials
Weird and wonderful Enhancements on football, cricket, golf and any sport you can think of.

25. Golf extra places overlay
The US PGA Championship golf. 10 places at Coral, Skybet, Paddy Power and Betfair Sportsbook.
Back a golfer each-way.
Lay your full stake on the top 10 market at Betfair, which effectively give an underlay on the win part of your bookie bet.
