Surviving in the Matched Betting world
Bookmakers do not like Matched Betting!
Believe it or not, Bookmakers aren’t particularly fond of matched bettors. After all, they are in the business of making money not giving it away. So is should come as no surprise that they are happy to block the accounts of those suspected of being involved with such activities.
This can pose a real problem for us as matched bettors; without betting accounts we can’t place bets, and if we can’t bet we can’t make money.
How to keep Betting Accounts Open
To get around this problem, we have to start thinking like a regular customer and place bets in the way they would.
The majority of customers bet on high-profile events such as Premier League football matches and famous horse races. With this in mind, we should also place bets on these events. If we get into the habit of regularly placing “Mug” bets, our accounts are more likely to remain unblocked.
A good Mug bet would be one placed on a low priced favorite (odds between 1.0 and 2.0) in a match involving a popular football team (Man Utd, Chelsea, Barcelona etc). We still lay the bet at an exchange as we aren’t interested in taking any risks.
These bets will cost us a few pennies a time, but in the long run, they will make us thousands!
