Is this the Best Way to Make Money Online in the UK?

This week we received an email from a reader that we’ll call Sarah, who said:

“I am a single mother and unfortunately out of work. It’s now got to the time where I’m really needing a source of income.

I’ve read on other websites that matched betting is the best way to earn money online in the UK, which is how I ended up finding Beating Betting.

The problem is I know nothing about betting or sport at all.

Will this still be the best way I can earn money from home, or would you advise looking to something else?”

Similar emails have been sent to us hundreds of times, so we thought it was time to put a post together looking at the key questions from this common email:

  • Is matched betting the best online income method in 2019?
  • Is it suitable for people that know nothing about sports or betting?
  • Is is suitable for those that have other responsibilities; i.e. baby duties or study?
  • What other good ways are there to earn money from home?

We answer all and more in this post, so keep reading to the end. (more…)

Does mug betting work?

Mug Betting Experiment: Does Mug Betting Work?

It’s long been debated in the industry:

Does mug betting actually work? 

We got sick of the arguing (at best) and complete misinformation (at worst) and decided to run a small experiment to see if we could reach a definitive answer one way or the other.

At the start of 2019, we got 20 testers on board — 20 modern day heroes — that were willing to potentially jeopardise the long-term health of their betting accounts (and their profits too) in the name of science.

We split these 20 testers into two groups of 10; those that would become mug bettors and those that would never do mug betting.

Below, you’ll find the results of our experiment and a few bits of commentary too. (more…)

Arbitrage Betting Guide

The Definitive Guide to Arbitrage Betting

Who said you can’t make money betting?

Many professionals create effective strategies to make a profit when betting. However, the vast majority of strategies are based on extensive data analysis and still rely on chance. Most bettors that rely on chance end up losing.

However, there a number of simple systems that don’t require any knowledge of form — or even of sport — in order to generate profits.

We’re going to look at one of those today.

Arbitrage betting, also known as arbing, is something taken from stock markets and retail. In these instances, arbitrage is the action of buying an asset in one market to sell it simultaneously in another market at a higher price.

The difference between the buying and selling price makes it possible to guarantee a profit.

So how can we use this financial concept to make money in the betting industry? We’re going to teach you everything you need to know. (more…)

How Often Should You Bluff

How Often Should You Bluff?

Bluffing – for the “layman”, it’s probably one of the first words that pop into their heads when they hear about poker. And in a certain way, they’re right to make that association.

See, bluffing is an essential tool to overrealise your equity in poker.

“Overrealising equity” is just a posh way of saying ‘win the pot more often with your hand than it would win if it went to showdown each hand’. (more…)

Poker Aces Fold

Folding Aces Pre-Flop: Should You Ever Do It?

The Twitch Poker Twitter account recently shared this video of a player, “Cwien”, live on stream folding pocket Aces before the flop, when it is impossible that anyone has a better hand than you.

https://twitter.com/TwitchPoker/status/981908994146164736

In the footage, Cwien comments that “we made the right fold” since after the board is dealt he learns that he would have lost to a King-high straight. But we all know poker doesn’t work like that.

A fold doesn’t become “right” or “wrong” based on whether you won or lost a single pot.

A sample size of one hand is not enough if you want to be profitable over the course of thousands and thousands of hands.

But is there any time when folding the best possible hand pre-flop is actually the right move? (more…)

Poker Button Ante Change the Dynamics of Hands

How Button Antes Change the Dynamics of Hands

Poker, after hundreds of years of being played around the globe, is still changing.

The game is constantly evolving, whether it be the advancement of strategy, new game types emerging – think of short-deck hold’em, the latest fad among high stakes pros – or changes to tournament structures.

The focus of this article is going to be the last of these categories, more specifically the button ante. (more…)

How long will no risk betting last?

How Long Will Matched Betting Last?

A question that many people (particularly newbies) ask me is how long will all of this last?

After all, with the strategy being so easy to learn and with so many people starting to do it every single day, surely the bookmakers are going to put a stop to it at some point, right?

I figured it was time that I finally put my thoughts about this on the record.

This isn’t an educational guide like my usual content, but you still might learn a thing or two from it. Overall though, the things you will read in this post are just my late-night ramblings. Don’t take them too seriously.

If you’d like to see these thoughts in video format, scroll to the end.  (more…)

Tennis Betting Rules: Retirement & Disqualification

The rules between bookmakers and exchanges vary depending on the length of the match that has been completed.

This is important for matched betting because if a player retires through injury, or gets disqualified (though this is extremely rare), you could end up losing your bet at the bookmaker and your exchange. Of course, you could also win both bets, but the risk is great — it’s an unnecessary gamble to take.

Because of these differences in rules, many people are put off by tennis. There is very little reason to be afraid — just make sure the retirement rules match beforehand and you’re fine.

Please be aware, we have tried to ensure that this list is accurate and up-to-date. However, it’s your responsibility to double check that terms match up. If you do notice any mistakes in this list, it would be great if you could let us know by email.

Below, you’ll find our full list of tennis retirement rules and disqualification rules, organised by the length of time required to have progressed in the match for your bet to be settled if one player is withdrawn early.
