Matched Betting Calculator

The matched betting calculator does all the complex maths for us and it’s incredibly easy to use. Simply select the Bet Type, enter the required figures and hit Calculate. The betting calculator tells us the required lay stake to either minimise losses or maximise profits.

Use our basic matched betting calculator to work out three different bet types: Qualifying Bets, Free Bets and Risk Free Bets.

Unlike other matched betting calculators our calculator lets you alter the back commission. This is useful if you were to place a back bet at a betting exchange. The calculator has a default value of 0 for the back commission so change it accordingly if you need to.

The lay commission has a default set to 2% to account for the Smarkets commission rate. If you use another betting exchange like Betfair you can simply alter this amount accordingly.

The calculator tells you the outcome for either a bookie (back bet) win or an exchange (lay bet) win.
