Matched Betting

What is the "Matched Betting Value" listed above? This is the amount of profit that you can make from the sign-up offer through a technique called matched betting. In short, it is a mathematical approach to sports betting that guarantees profit by hedging your bets. This allows you to cover all possible outcomes and secure a profit no matter what happens in the game. This is different from gambling because there is no risk of losing. Learn more in our What Is Matched Betting guide.

Overview Inside

Bet365 was founded in England in 2000 and is a world wide leader in online gaming. They came to the United States in 2019 starting in New Jersey and have continued to expand throughout the US since then. In 2022 they launched in Ontario after being approved by the Alcohol and Gamming Commission of Ontario. Bet365 has a wide range of available markets and was one of the first sportsbooks to allow live streaming of sporting events.

Notes Before Signing Up

If bet365 does not immediately accept a $2,000 bet they will ask if you want to send the bet to the trading team for review. Do not do this. If they reject the full $2,000 they will automatically accept a lower amount and only that amount will count towards the $2,000 Second Chance Bet.

When signing up you need to select which sign-up offer you want. Additionally, the offer is only valid for the first seven days from when you create your account.

Early Payout

Bet365 often has Early Payout promotions running for most sports. If a team reaches a certain lead within a game, it is graded as a winner wager even if they ultimately end up losing the game. This is the same concept as the DraftKings Early Win promotion. The leads required for this promotion are typically substantial leads that are rarely blown. These promotions are not profitable for matched betting by themselves, but using bet365 as a hedge book could result in a double win if the bet365 reaches the required lead and ultimately ends up losing the game.

MLB House Rules

Each sportsbook has its own House Rules which determine how a bet is graded. These rules cover unlikely events, such as what happens to your bet when a game is canceled.

Usually, the different house rules across sportsbooks do not have an impact on matched betting. However, in Major League Baseball (MLB), there are notable exceptions. A simple example is when a game is postponed due to weather. Read our House Rules Comparison guide to learn more.

For MLB it is also important to understand what defines Action.
