Hi, do you mean in terms of mug betting in the context of matchdd betting (to avoid getting gubbed), or do you mean how do betting odds work in general?
How do they work in general?

Hiya Guys...

Looking into the Sky Bet Free Bet Club, you have to place bets worth £25 within the week yep, then you get a FREE £5 on the Monday...My question is, if you are making say 5 x £5 pound bets during the week, would this not add up to being more than you can make back on the FREE £5 bet from Sky on the Monday !!! Might be me and my crazy brain, but not sure on this....

Would appreciate any help or advice....

Cheers..Pete

Me again...just been messing around with the Oddsmatcher and the Calculator, looks like you might be approx £2 in profit after the £25 bets have been placed and the FREE £5 is used, yep....Pete

Correct so you make up the £25 by doing regular offers on skybet throughout the week like horse refunds etc

Hi. Ive only recently signed up to this site. Ive heard of matched betting before but didnt want to try it as I really dont want to lose any money. Has anybody actually lost any bets(big ones)? Also what are the basics for me to get started?
Thanks.

Hiya Guys,

Just out of interest what's the biggest bet you have placed, and what did this give you in return...

, Cheers Pete..

Biggest bet I've placed was £20 (free £20) against £10 (my own money) and got £35 out of it.

I once backed 1.2K on Quevega at Betfair exchange and layed off at Smarkets 1 minute before the off in a Mares Hurdle Race for Cheltenham festival.
This was for a Betfair bonus on winnings offer, made about £80 fully underlayed.

Wow 1 min before off, think I would be a little on edge with that....
