New to matched betting?
My Matched Betting Academy is the best place to get started. Learning the fundamentals takes 10-15 minutes and you’ll make £15 in the process.

What is the best way to take advantage of enhanced odds offers?
Sorry just recently started matched betting and confused on this one ^^+0toonjangles 0 January 5, 2016 at 1:27 pm
You can use the calculator to tell you the ideal lay bet to maximise returns. In this case bet £20 at 3.0 and lay £22.39 to guarantee maximum profit (£1.94 in this case).
Or you can ‘skew’ the bet towards the outcome you expect i.e. underlay Liverpool if you expect them to win – a lay of £20.5 would give a profit of £5.15 if liverpool win and a profit of 9p if they don’t.
I usually try to skew bets against my preferred outcome i.e. I want to win into the exchange so underlaying means I make more profit if the bookie wins to compensate for any additional hassle.+0David 0 January 5, 2016 at 1:31 pm
So you’ll back @ 3.0x£20 giving you £40 profit
Then your going to lay current price on Smarkets is 2.7 with £20 for a liability of £34
So if Liverpool win you get £40 in Paddy Power but lose £34 on Smarkets so £6 profit.
If Liverpool don’t win you’ll lose £20 with Paddy Power but gain £20 with Smarkets equalling £0 (now technically you’ll lose 40p because of the Smarkets commission and you can adjust the amount you lay if you want to ensure you don’t lose 40p.
Alternatively if you want to guarentee profit you could lay a little more on Smarkets and gain a little less if Liverpool do win. E.g laying £22 will look like this:
I haven’t applied commission to keep it slightly easier but if you were to apply just times your lay amount by 0.02 and subtract from your overall profit.
Hope that helps, it’s not a huge gain and it may be worth waiting till a little closer to kick off as you may find that Liverpool’s price drops and therefore our profit margin grows.
Also if I’m missing something or people can think of a better way please enlighten me! 🙂+0RyanB 11 January 5, 2016 at 6:43 pm
Went for the guaranteed profit of £3.15, cheers for the post Mike!+0Tony S 6 January 5, 2016 at 7:31 pm
I didn’t lay this off… £20 @ 2/1 Liverpool
Draw @ 9/4 for £18.50 with Hills
Stoke @ 23/10 For £18.00
Guaranteed £4ish… Usually underlay but am out and about tonight and I suppose the mug bet won’t hurt too much ??+0
