Key Takeaways

Filters allow you to remove bets that do not meet your needs. Whether it is because a particular promotion is for a specific league, has minimum odds requirements, your bankroll limits your max hedge amount, or even situations where you need to select a single event. Our filters allow you to do this without wasting time searching through every available line.

Apply Filters

Click the “Filters” button to view and apply filters.

Main Lines Only

Selecting Main Lines Only will filter Market Type to Money Line, Spread, and Total and Market Segment to Full Game/Match. This is recommended to avoid limits. Learn more in our Don't Get Limited guide.

You can add/remove leagues as desired.

Market Type

Find the exact market you need for your promotion.

There is a toggle to “Apply to Hedge Bets” which lets you choose to apply the Market filter to your hedge books. For example, at times the Main Line Spread on one book may be an Alternate Spread on the hedge book. In some cases, you may be okay with an Alternate Line for your hedge, in other cases, maybe not. This toggle lets you choose.

Market Segment

Select the desired game segment from full game/match to specific quarters, halves, innings, periods, and sets.

No Pushes

This filter removes the chance of your bets pushing. The main reason to avoid pushing a bet is for Bonus Bets. Some sportsbooks do not refund Bonus Bets, so pushing on a Bonus Bet would result in missed profit. You would not lose any money, but would lose the profit from the Bonus Bet conversion. Within the No Pushes filter there are options to allow three exceptions.

NFL Full-Game Moneylines

NFL is the most popular sport to bet on with the largest limits, and they tie less than 0.5% of the time. The risk is small but it does exist.

MMA Winner markets

MMA fights end in a draw less than 1% of the time.

If the hedge bet wins (middles)

Matched betting is designed so that one bet loses and the other bet wins. There are instances where one bet will win or push and the other bet will win. This is called a middle. It happens when there is a small difference in the spread or totals you are betting on.

Example 1: Betting Over 48.5 points in an NFL game and betting Under 49.5 points in the same game. If 49 points are scored both bets win.

Example 2: Betting Over 49 points in an NFL game and hedge with Under 49.5 points in the same game can also result in a middle. If 49 points are scored the Over 49 bet pushes and the Under 49.5 bet wins.

Turn this exception on if it does not matter if the Promotional Bet is voided. Such as a Site Credit Bet. Leave this exception off if the promotional bet needs to settle, such as a Qualifying Bet.

If a Bonus Bet pushes and the Hedge Bet wins, you profit the same as if the Bonus Bet lost. If you are able to get a refund for the Bonus Bet your profit increases because you can convert that refund. In the example below if the Panthers win by exactly 9 points the Bonus Bet is voided, but you still make $80 from the hedge. If DraftKings refunds the Bonus Bet you can convert it again.

Hedge Bet Odds

Set Min and Max odds for your Hedge Bet. This is particularly useful when stacking promotions. For example, your Hedge Bet is Site Credit and has a minimum odds requirement.

Hedge Books

Add/remove hedge books as needed. On the Settings page, you can also add and remove books that will be available across all your Bet Finders. Filtering hedge books here will only apply to this Bet Finder. This is useful when you have a low bankroll in one of your books and you want to remove it as a possible hedge, but do not want to remove it from settings since you still belong to the book.

Max Hedge Bet

You can limit the maximum hedge amount to only show bets that fit your bankroll.

Select multiple events that you want to include or exclude from the Bet Finder results. Include events works well when a qualifying bet need to be placed on a specific event. Exclude events works well when you have already bet on a game, and do not want to bet it again.

The Wind Filter allows you to include or exclude games based on both wind speed and direction. For example you can filter to:

  • "Don't show me any games where the wind is blowing Left to Right and is at least 15 mph."
  • "Only show me the games where the wind is blowing Out and is at least 10 mph."

The following options are available for the Wind Filter:

  • Wind Speed: In mph
  • Wind Direction: Any, In, Out, Right to Left, Left to Right

The Weather Filter enables excluding games that have a chance of precipitation above the threshold you set.

Best From Each Event

Some promotions will give you several offers but you can only use one per game. Turning this filter on only shows the best available conversion for each game. For example, DraftKings often does one 25% profit boost for each NFL game in week one.
