February 2021 Matched Betting Overview
February was ticking along quite nicely and then during the last weekend it ALL happened...
SIX 2UP FULL TURN AROUNDS!
Yes - 6! All in one weekend. Crazy stuff! Here's the brief details on all of them.
Sheffield Wednesday (vs Luton)
One member got £100 on Sheffield Wednesday at back odds of 3.6 and lay odds of 3.65. This gave them a Qualifying Loss of £1.37, but the FTA coming in then gave them a total profit of £358.63 (£260 at Bet365 and £98.63 at Smarkets using their 0% commission).
This member's full post can be seen on the forum here - it gives a useful insight on the 2up offer and how even when you wait a long-time for an FTA, you still end in profit (when you strictly control your Qualifying Losses!)
Crewe (vs Sunderland)
A good match on the odds doesn't appear to have come up for Crewe that we saw on the forum or the Oddsmatcher - can't get them all!
Plymouth (vs Lincoln)
You had to be watching on this one and cash-out at 2-2 or 3-3 for the FTA - anyone who wasn't keeping an eye and hoping for the game to end in an FTA missed out as Plymouth ended up winning it 4-3.
If CJB83 used a £50 back stake at these odds they would have had a Qualifying Loss of £1.42. The FTA coming in then resulted in a total profit of £168.57 (£120 at the bookie, and £48.57 at Smarkets with a 0% commission).
Borussia Moenchengladbach (vs Leipzig)
A good oddsmatch at 5.5 and 5.6 was seen briefly by the author first thing on the Saturday morning - but the odds were cut fast by Bet365. For those quick enough to get on this with a £50 stake, they would have had a Qualifying Loss of just 91p. The FTA coming in then would have resulted in a total profit of £274.11 (£225 at Bet365, and £49.11 at Smarkets with a 0% commission).
Parma (vs Spezia)
If Mitts79 used a £50 back stake at these odds they would have had a Qualifying Loss of just 74p. The FTA coming in resulted in a total profit of £169.28 (£120 at the bookie, and £49.28 at Smarkets with a 0% commission).
Angers (vs Lens)
This was on the Sunday 28th February.
If you're in our Facebook Group - you can see Martin's post for yourself here.
Getting on even one of these FTAs would have been brilliant - especially using larger stakes (£100-£200 or even more). Some members managed to hit 3 over the weekend, which is really amazing...
The only thing that was missing from the weekend was a 'Perfect FTA' where both both team's in the game go 2up and the match ends 4-4 (or similar!).
Quite new to Matched Betting and not sure what the 2up early pay-out offer is?
There is a great introductory guide here and a really useful 2up faq and insights post for beginners from one of our more experienced members 'Mr Bond' on the forum here. Highly recommend reading both if you want to learn how to make the serious profits from 2ups like Neezy does here...

At the end of every month we ask our more long-term members to share in our Matched Betting forum how they’ve got on, how much profit they’ve made and what offers they did to make these profits.
These kinds of forum threads act as a great motivator for newer members, but also show those thinking about starting just how much money can be made with Matched Betting when you decide to take action and put a bit of time and effort into it too – even if it’s just for a couple of hours each week.
It's also worth remembering that these members have fully completed all the bookmaker signup offers and are only making money now doing Matched Betting reload offers.
