There are many things in life that are too good to be true, with Manchester United’s unbeaten run in the Premier League earlier this season being one of them, as the Red Devils fell to defeat on the road. You might think that risk free betting is another example of something that is too good to be true, but you’d be wrong. There really is an opportunity available that you can exploit for you to have a flutter on the footy without any risk attached, meaning that you’re guaranteed to end up with more cash in your pocket.

Even if you’re not into betting, you won’t have failed to have noticed the enticing offers that a variety of online bookmakers are trying to sell to you. The online sports gambling market is an incredibly competitive one and thus each online bookie is trying to outdo each other with their opening offer in an attempt to win your custom. Some online bookmakers are even offering free bets up to the value of £200, but as always there is a catch to some extent; you have to make bets of this value first in order to qualify for the free bet.

Like all football fans, you’ve probably already run the worst case scenario through your head. You might be thinking, if I lose my original bet and then go on to lose my free bet then I’ll be down £200, but there is a way to get around this and it comes in the form of matched betting. Matched betting is a term that you might have heard about before without really investigating, but as will be explained here, it really is worth following up.

The process behind matched betting is fairly simple. Once you make a bet with an online bookie you can then match that bet by laying against it at an online betting exchange on the Internet. For example, you could bet on Javier Hernandez to score in Man United’s next match at Old Trafford, so laying this bet would mean you also bet on Chicharito not finding the back of the net.

By following this process, after your first round of betting you’re likely to be a little bit in the red, whether the Mexican scores or not. However, by making your original bet you’ll now have qualified for your free bet, and this is where you can start making a profit. One website that will help you do to this is freebets4all.com as they allow you to use their matched betting calculator.

By visiting the site you can search out the matched betting opportunities that will guarantee that you make a profit. Again you need to follow the process of having a flutter with your free bet and then laying against it at a betting exchange. All you have to do is choose the bet online that offers the highest profit through the ‘Automatcher Service’ and then sit back and enjoy the event in question, being safe in the knowledge that you’ll have bit more cash in your pocket at the end of it.
