7 tips to risk free money from the World Cup 2018
The World Cup is here.
Four years of waiting and the first game between Russia and Saudi Arabia is this Thursday.
In this Matched Betting blog post, I give you 7 tips for how you can use the no-risk betting strategy, Matched Betting, to earn risk-free money from the World Cup.
Don’t get overwhelmed
Offers left, right and centre. Bet on this to get that. Free bets if you do this. Make a deposit and get a bonus. Phew. There are loads of offers and it is easy to get overwhelmed and lose track of everything.
Take a deep breath and just do one offer at a time. Don’t worry about all the offers for now. Focus on the one you are doing. Make sure you understand the T&Cs and place your bets. Then move on to the next offer. One at a time. If you don’t get around to doing them all, that’s perfectly OK.
Don’t start looking into offers or place bets 30 min before the start of a game. It does take time to read and understand the offer conditions and place the Matched Bets. Also, you may have to make a deposit either with the bookmaker or your betting exchange.
Focus on free bet offers
Start with the free bet offers before moving on to any other bets. The “bet x and get x free bet” offer type is easy and you will earn immediate profit once you place the free bets. Move on to other types of risk free offers like the deposit bonuses at a later stage.
Think about your bank roll
If you’re planning to take advantage of as many offers as possible then you need to plan ahead. Unless you have a large bankroll, you’ll need to consider each bet as it could tie up money that may be better used elsewhere.
A good example is an offer like the following one: you bet on the winner of the World Cup and get a free bet every time the team you chose wins a game. This is a great offer but laying at high odds will also tie up a large amount of money that you will not see again before the World Cup ends. So, before you tie up €300 for a month, you need to consider if you have the bank roll to still place bets during the World Cup. If not, don’t use long term offers.
Side note: When you lay several teams to win the World Cup, your overall liability will decrease. Therefore, avoid betting only on one team to win the World Cup.
Use the World Cup Matched Betting spread sheet
Stay organised to avoid losing track, free bets or missing an offer. Read the Matched Betting blog post World Cup Matched Betting spread sheet and make sure you use the spread sheet.
Don’t worry if you don’t get to every offer
Don’t feel that you have to take every single offer that the bookmakers throw at you. It is perfectly OK to take a breather one day and not place a single bet. Also, with a full-time job, kids etc, it is impossible to take every offer; especially the afternoon games during the week.
Focus on the bets you do have time for and be happy to make risk-free profit.
Tell a friend
Don’t keep this great way to earn money with Matched Betting to yourself. Do you know a friend or family member that could use some extra cash? Yes, don’t we all. Share your Matched Betting success story and show that person how to get started. They will be forever grateful as they keep earning money with Matched Betting for years to come.
