Does Matched Betting work in 2017

Every single time I bring up Matched Betting to my friends or family, the first question they ask is does Matched Betting work in 2017 (Or whatever year we where in)? The answer I give them is yes.

Do they believe me?

Most of the time no. So far I have managed to convince 4/5 of my friends to give Matched Betting a go. I then wondered do other people wonder if it works. Well I have decided to categorically answer the question does Matched Betting work in 2017?


Well I have gathered up three of my friends and myself, and I have promised to spend an hour every single day on Skype in a group chat. In the chat I will be talking through what offers I am doing, and helping them through the beginners offers.

I aim to show you that firstly someone can start Matched Betting and make £1,000 in a month, someone who already does Matched Betting (me) can continue Matched Betting and make £1,000. I am also going to do a bit of split testing. As part of the question does Matched Betting work in 2017, I am going to be using OddsMonkey as are two of my friends, and one of them is going to use Profit Accumulator.


So we can see if using either of them makes us more profitable. There are so many reviews on OddsMonkey and Profit Accumulator, I thought how can we answer the question of which one of them is better.

So Does Matched Betting work in 2017?

Hopefully by this time next month you will believe me that it does.

So how are we going to do it:

  • We will spend an hour a day, every single day working on Matched Betting.
  • All three of my friends will be starting with the beginners offers, and I will be doing normal reload offers.
  • We will not be using any Multi Accounting, or trying to bend the rules at all.
  • All of my friends will be starting with £250 in their bankroll. I have withdrawn a lot of my bankroll and continued with £750, this is to make this a fair test.
  • We will give weekly updates on how it is going, and if there any mistakes or losses we will not hide them. This is going to be a diary of what really happens, and not the polished versions you see online everywhere else.

This are quite simple and basic rules, but that’s because Matched Betting is quite simple. So what are our aims?

Well each and every one of us wants to earn £1,000 this month from Matched Betting. I am currently planning a relaunch of my other business, and I am now looking to relocate in the summer so I need as much cash as I can get. All of my friends just want to earn some extra money on the side.

We all have jobs, (Or a business in my case), and we all have personal lives, girlfriends and friends, and support local football teams. We will be spending an hour each day as this is the average amount of time people have to spare each day. We could all spare this without committing to much.

Why are we doing this together?

Firstly I wanted to see if working in a group would increase what we earnt, and if it would provide the motivation necessary. The forums on OddsMonkey are excellent, but most people don’t know they are there until they start Matched Betting.

I can also answer any questions my friends have quickly and easily. If anyone does want any help with Matched Betting feel free to email me,

Firstly, I know there are a lot of Matched Betting services out there, and I appreciate some of them might be very good. However, the two main one’s are OddsMonkey and Profit Accumulator, these are the one’s most people are interested in.

Is this a fair test?

Probably not, but it will be interesting to get a comparison from two completely neutral people.
