Simply by finding a tight bookie/betfair match means that the odds that you'll put your money on have great value, i.e. the estimated probability (which is embedded in odds themselves) is lesser than the actual. Over long term, these odds will win you money so I find it a good idea to allocate the eventual profit over to the value side rather than breaking even regardless of the outcome. And the way to do this is underlay.
Apparantly I already signed up with Boyle in 2005! I don't recall signing up and I never used the account but it's definitely me. I see they're partner friendly so I'll just tackle this one in that way.

Hi all - another word of advice for newbies. I nearly messed up on this last night but realised in time. Pay real attention to the dates on the US Baseball games. I found what looked like a slight arb on a game listed as May 2nd at both bookies.
When I looked a little closer, I noticed that Betfair had the fixtures listed as May 1 / May 2 whilst the other bookie had them listed as May 2 / May 3. So - the arb was on different games!
Making the most of bookies offers
Hi im still fairly new to match betting but im at the stage where im going to be doing some of the bookies that offer refunds if there is a certain score and other sort of offers. I was wondering if anyone could give me some advice how to make the most of these refund your money or losing free bet offers. any advice would be great.Thanx
You need to check out the 'If...' bet offers thread in the sportsbooks section -
The If Bet Offers Thread
Hope I pasted that correctly Good luck
Richard, this is a problem with baseball games. Because of the vast distances they cover in the US, the baseball games are played against the same opponents 3 or 4 times in a weekend/mid-week series. Sometimes due to bad weather, they will have a 'double'header' on a particular day - 2 matches on the same day.

Try looking in the BetChronicle thread they have VERY regular refund offers on correct scores (2-2 at moment i think) and is a good offer to "cut your teeth" with as its all losing bets are refunded, even match odds. Bet365 have ongoing refund on 0-0 but thats correct scores only i think so "harder" to do.
Have a plan and stick to it
Blue Square, too, Andy. As the sponsors of the 'Blue Square Premiership', they refund correct score bets if it ends 0-0, although I think it may only apply to televised games.
