To help you find the best Qualifying Bet, and to find it quickly, we recommend to use your Oddsmonkey Oddsmatcher tool. Set the filter so it finds back odds ideally between 1.50 and 2.80.

Of course if you’re not quite ready to try Oddsmonkey yet you can get help finding Qualifying Bets in our Matched Betting Blog or just try to find a bet manually.

Remember on Smarkets: #BLUE BOXES.

Choose a bet from the Oddsmatcher then check the odds are as expected at Bet UK and Smarkets. (If not hit ‘Refresh’ on the Oddsmatcher to update the list of available bets).

  2. Your back odds at the bookmaker (must be minimum of 1.50)
  3. The blue box lay odds from Smarkets

The calculator then works out your lay stake amount, which you will use for your against bet at Smarkets.

> Reduce the chance of partially-matched bets or un-matched bets by making sure the liquidity (amount under blue lay box) is larger than your lay stake amount.
