Matched betting for students – discover how you can make money online from the comfort of your own home, risk and tax free…

It’s that time of year again when students are back off to universities up and down the country. This will be met by great relief to some parents and much the same reaction for students.

However, students will typically have one thing on their mind…

How they’re going to get by for yet another year.

Summer jobs have ended and it’s time to get back into the swing of student life.

For some students this will be their first taste of uni life and with that comes no other than…

Freshers week…

Where can we start?

First off, you’ll face the real challenge of remembering 100 different names; once you’ve finally woken up at 3pm, it’s time to eat something and then get ready for another night out!

When you get to the end of the non-stop partying, it’s time to check the bank balance…


One of the most common problems students face at university is their financial situation. Many students resort to the bank of mum and dad multiple times a year.

It’s no wonder when the cost of living is so high and the amount of money students spend on fun times is also so high!

Whether that’s the morning coffee trip or the seemingly endless alcoholic drink purchases for pres!

When you add in regular living and accommodation costs, plus the tuition fees, after your average 4 year uni course students are looking at stupid amounts of debt that will take a long while to pay off.

How matched betting for students can help

The simple answer to student debt is make more money. However, this is easier said than done.

First off, students go to uni to study, not to work in the ‘making money’ sense.

This comes later once the partying has finished.

Therefore, students are limited in terms of how much time they can spend earning money.

Some university courses have huge directed study times in lectures and tutorials of up to 40 hours.

Whereas this is mainly for those doing engineering and law degrees… you get the point, there isn’t a lot of free time to make money.

In the free time you do have, you could find bar work, become a club promoter or waiter in a restaurant depending on whether you’re in a town or city.

But who wants to work on minimum wage and miss out on nights out?

I didn’t!

So that’s where matched betting for students comes in…

What is matched betting?

No risk matched betting, also known as double betting, is a brilliant method in which you can make money online to pay off some of your student debts or spend on nights out!

We take advantage of the massive range of bookmaker free bets and promotions.

If you don’t live under a stone, you’ll definitely have seen adverts from the biggest bookies offering free bets and incentives if you open a betting account with them or place a bet on a certain game, for example.

Well, we can make a guaranteed profit from a lot of these offers using matched betting.

So, next time you come across one of these promotions, think: I can make a guaranteed profit from that.

How matched betting works

A lot of students and other potential matched bettors are sometimes dubious about how matched betting can be risk free and how you can make a guaranteed profit.

It’s a fair question – you wouldn’t have thought making a guaranteed profit was possible with betting.

However, I’m here to tell you that it is. And it’s incredibly profitable.

To make matched betting risk free, we use a technique called back and lay betting. In simple terms, we place two bets which cancel each other out.

One of these bets is a back bet and the other is a lay bet.

What’s a lay bet, I hear you asking.

A lay bet is the opposite of a back bet. Instead of betting for an outcome to happen, we bet for an outcome NOT to happen.

You can only place lay bets at a betting exchange.

As we mentioned above, by placing a back and lay bet on the same market our two bets neutralise each other. We effectively end up where we started.

This method allows us to qualify and profit from bookmakers free bets without risking any of our own money.

That’s why we do it for our premium members.

As soon as we find a new offer, we’ll add it to our member’s only platform along with a brilliant tutorial guiding you through the whole process.

Get in touch with us at any time through the various options and we’ll be more than happy to help with anything.

Matched betting tools

Students who sign up to The Sure Bettor will have access to the latest matched betting tools.

The maths behind matched betting is quite complex and would require a high level of mathematical understanding to work out the correct amount to stake.

What’s more, it would take a lot of time.

We’ve made this simple with our matched betting calculator which works out the exact figures easily and efficiently, allowing you to spend more time completing the latest offers.

Advanced tracking features

In the past many matched bettors have recorded all their bets and profits in an overly complex Excel spreadsheet.

This was an inefficient method and reduced the time matched bettors spent completing the latest offers.

When we created The Sure Bettor we insisted on a system that could easily track your completed bets and record your overall profit.

We’re incredibly happy with this feature that we’ve created which also allows members to set a monthly profit target and visually see how far they’ve come towards achieving their goal.

We call this Tracking Plus.


The more we write about matched betting the more we fall in love with the method. That’s saying something considering how much we already love it!

It really is brilliant!
