Matched betting blog for beginners

Hey there! I'm Dougie and welcome to my matched betting blog for beginners. I started this blog when I was a complete beginner, hence the name. Well, I have been doing this part time, on top of my full time job, for a few years now.

I setup this matched betting blog up as a way of writing about what I am doing, mainly to help myself learn (and make squeeze every last poundnote of profit). Since the early days, back in 2013, it has grown and grown. It's now completely free-to-use, full of matched betting guides.

If you are a beginner then I'd recommend using matched betting software. It takes the hassle out of finding offers, matching up odds, and calculating how much you need to bet/lay. I use OddsMonkey. You can grab a free trial or check out my 2024 OddsMonkey review.
