Juventus host Manchester United in the Champions League, and the Mansionbet new customers offer is a great opportunity to make some risk free matched betting cash.
New customers opening a Mansionbet account can get either 28/1 on Juventus to win, or 80/1 on Manchester United to win, in their Champions League fixture on Wednesday night.
To get this offer you will need to deposit £10 on sign up, and the maximum bet at the enhanced odds is just £1. Mansion have Juventus at 10/17, and Manchester United are 21/4.
The way the offer works is you have your pound on one or the other of the teams. If your bet wins, you will get paid out at the normal prices (10/17 Juve or 21/4 Man U), and the enhanced winnings will be paid in free bets.
Currently on the Betfair betting exchange, Juve are 1.64 to lay and United are 7.2, meaning you could lay either team for a few quid. You can overlay either team on Betfair.
This way you would either get immediate cash from Betfair (if your lay doesn’t win), or you would end up with a massive amount of free bets (if your lay bet wins), which could be used to make more risk free money.
Football bettors can be broken down into two types: Those who like the instant hit and those who can patiently wait to collect their profits. Both can, of course, be profitable, with punters picking up shrewd wins from live betting just as easily as a season long punt. There is, however, an argument that says things are more predictable over the course of a season. For example, Paris Saint Germain could have an ‘off day’, such as with their defeats to Rennes and Strasbourg last season, but on balance they will come through in the outright markets.
This is important as we are now at the stage of the year when bookmakers are releasing their outright odds for the new season. Backing ‘sure things’ in outright markets requires a little patience and the odds are not always huge, but there is less chance of an upset than in a single game. Moreover, if you make the right moves in terms of matched bets and bookies’ promotions, you can eliminate the risk all together.
Eredivisie Big 2 Can Guarantee Return
So, how do you maximise your profit for the new season? The first port of call is to the Eredivisie in the Netherlands, where you will find only two teams in with a serious chance of winning the title – PSV Eindhoven or Ajax. The current odds from Black Type show PSV as 3/10 favourites for the title, with Ajax priced at 21/10. Another bookie, 188Bet, has Ajax down as the favourites at 15/13, with PSV priced at 23/17. The short of it is that you can back both teams in what is essentially a two-horse race at a price nicely above evens. Scouring the leagues and different bookmakers for bets like these can lead to real profit, especially if you claim a free bet no deposit offer to cover any potential losses.
There are, of course, pitfalls to look out for when making these season bets. For example, Bayern Munich, who are best-priced at just 2/13 to win the Bundesliga, should possibly be avoided this season. While Munich tend to plunder the rest of the Bundesliga for players each summer, there is also a sense of transition around the Bavarian giants, with likes of Franck Ribery, Arjen Robben coming to the end of their careers. Exciting, dynamic sides like RB Leipzig and Borussia Dortmund have a reasonable chance of releasing Munich’s grip on the Bundesliga title this season.
PSG Will Stroll to Victory in Ligue 1
If you are looking for a sure thing for next season, then look no further than PSG. Their dominance is much more pronounced than, say, Juventus or Munich. You may have to shop around for decent odds though, with Betway’s odds of 1/7 looking the biggest at the moment. Although, not all major bookies have released odds for Ligue 1 as of yet.
Naturally, most punters will be looking at the Premier League outrights at this time of year, Man City’s incredible performance levels last season has insured that Pep Guardiola’s men are odds-on for the title, with a best price of 4/6 (BetBright, Sky Bet). That seems risky though, especially when you consider there are five other teams with a realistic chance of winning the league. It should also be noted that City sent 16 players to the World Cup – twice that of Liverpool. Could tiredness play a role? A 7/1 each-way bet on Manchester United, who will likely spend huge amounts in the coming weeks, looks a much shrewder way of betting on the Premier League.
So…you’ve been playing poker for a while and you can hold your own but you aren’t quite where you want to be yet. How on earth should you approach improving your game? If you want to be able to play poker professionally, or you’re just desperate to take down the boys every poker night, here are five steps to becoming a better poker player…
1 – Pick a discipline
Elite athletes all have a specialism and so should you. Pick a variation of poker, for example Texas Hold’em, and focus on becoming the best you can at it. Once you’ve picked, only play this game online and with friends. The more you dive into the variation you’ve chosen, the better you will come. Choosing just one area to concentrate on, rather than spreading it out across multiple, will ensure you improve at a faster rate.
2 – Study your craft
Now it’s time to get nerdy and to study your game with all your might. Read everything you can get your hands on. Watch all of the online tutorials you can find and study the masters at work. 2 + 2 Publishing have some great books that will set you on your way, and The Theory of Poker is essential reading for any novice looking to one day make it to the big leagues. If you’re serious about improving your poker game, you need to get serious about educating yourself in that which you wish to master. Sorry to break it to you, but this also includes the maths side of things!
3 – Practice makes perfect
Sure, there are ‘naturals’ in the world, but there are also those that got to where they are through dogged determination to be the best – and they’re the ones that deserve it the most! If you want to get better at poker, you will need to practice at every opportunity you get. This doesn’t mean gambling for the big bucks right away. It means, playing online for free until you’re confident enough to wager small amounts, then to take on others, and then to eventually enter competitions. Practice as much as you can, and one day you could be playing in the World Series of Poker.
4 – Review your play
Sports coaches have been employing this technique for decades to make their athletes or sports teams the best in the biz. In order to understand how you play, and to improve in the ways you wish, you need to review how you play to see where you fall short and where you excel. It’s important to develop an understanding of what works and what doesn’t. The easiest way to track your play is through a poker review programme.
5 – Bring in the big dogs
If you practice and practice, and study hard – you’ll see improvements for sure. If this level of commitment doesn’t bring you the progress you desire, or you feel as though you’ve plateaued you could think about hiring a poker coach. While this will involve an outgoing, just one session with a respected coach could elevate your game to the next level.
The 2018 FIFA Football World Cup is almost upon us, and this means that there is going to be a whole host of new customer offers becoming available, as there will be a complete bookie meltdown with offers galore coming over the next few weeks.
To start with, I expect there will be enhanced odds offers on teams to win the world cup in the build up to the start of the competition. For example, I would imagine the likes of Betfair and Paddy Power will be offering massive odds on the likes of Germany and Brazil to lift the trophy.
Back in 2014 this happened, and I seem to remember that 888Sport also did a massive promotion along these lines.
Then when the competition finally kicks off on 14th June, we will start to get the match specific offers, such as enhanced odds on Brazil to beat Switzerland in their opener on 17th June, and England to beat Tunisia in their match the day after, etc.
There will be loads of these sort of offers, and these offer a great chance to cash in using the matched betting technique.
As the football World Cup is one of the biggest sporting events on the planet, there is going to be a lot of betting taking place. Here we only recommend matched betting, but if you are planning on having a little dabble try and make sure that you are only using free money made from matched betting, and that you are certain of what you are betting on.
Check out football betting explained for information on betting, they explain all kinds of football betting markets, to make sure you know what you are doing.
England’s latest warm up game seen the Three Lions beat Nigeria 2-1 in a friendly at Wembley, with goals from Gary Cahill and new captain Harry Kane.
The big race is only a couple of days away now, and all the bookmakers seem to have finally settled on exactly what they are offering with regard to each-way terms.
While the number of bookmakers offering 6 each-way places seems to have steadily grown over the past few days, the bookmakers offering to pay out on 5 each-way places seems to have shrunk.
Below is the latest list of bookies offering 5 each-way places……
– bet365 – 1/4 of the odds
– Ladbrokes – 1/4 of the odds
– William Hill – 1/4 of the odds
– Betfair – 1/5 of the odds
– Coral – 1/4 of the odds
– BetStars – 1/4 of the odds
– Betbright – 1/4 of the odds
– 10Bet – 1/4 of the odds
The Grand National is being run on Saturday 14th April, at Aintree Racecourse, the race starts at 5.15pm. It is the showpiece event of the 3 day Aintree Festival, which is taking place from Thursday 12th April, until Saturday 14th April.
Due to the fact that the Grand National is one of the biggest betting events of the year, the bookmakers have a (typically bad) habit of removing their free bets in the lead up to the race. Matched Betting opportunities can be fairly scarce on the race itself, but there are some good offers available over the course of the 3 day meeting, with the usual ITV horse racing offers still available.
If you’re a Profit Maximiser member, then keep your eye on the Calendar for the Aintree Festival offers. There’s plenty of offers on there to keep you going over the Festival, so even if you don’t profit from the Grand National itself, you will make money from the 3 day event.
The biggest race of the National Hunt season takes place this Saturday, when the Randox Grand National is ran at the famous Aintree Racecourse.
Currently there are quite a few bookmakers offering 6 Each-Way places on the Grand National, they are as follows (along with the odds they are paying out at)
– Paddy Power – 1/5 of the odds
– Betvictor – 1/5 of the odds
– Skybet – 1/5 of the odds
– Betfred – 1/5 of the odds
– Boylesports – 1/5 of the odds
– Totesport – 1/5 of the odds
– Betway – 1/5 of the odds
– 888Sport – 1/5 of the odds
The race is live on ITV, so the general ITV horse racing offers may still stand, but I would check with the relevant bookmakers, as they do withdraw free bets, etc, for the Grand National, so it wouldn’t be a huge shock to see them withdraw these offers as well.
The maximum bet at 25/1 is just £1.00, and winnings are paid out in free bets. On the Betfair Betting Exchange, Chelsea are currently 1.35 to lay, meaning you can cover your original outlay for less than a quid.

In order to fully maximise any profits, you would need to underlay Chelsea, meaning that you would lose money if Chelsea win.
So for example, lets you underlay Chelsea for £10.00, meaning that if they win, you would lose £3.50 on the betting exchange. To compensate for that though, you would have £25.00 in free bets, which you could turn into around £17.00 in risk free cash.
While if Chelsea didn’t win, you would make £10.00 from the profits on the Betting Exchange, while losing just £1.00 to Paddy Power, meaning a guaranteed profit.
Keep your eyes peeled on the blog this week, as it’s the Grand National next Saturday, and we will be bringing you all the bookmakers offering 5 each-way places, and all the bookies offering 6 each-way places, on the big race.
Below I have put together an extensive list of the bookies paying out on extra each-way places at the Masters, and I have also included the odds that they are paid out at.

If you are having a bet on the Masters, make sure you get the best value you can from one of the bookmakers. Using the extra each way places gives you a bit more of an advantage, and even though it’s not matched betting, and not guaranteeing yourself a profit, having the extra each way places is better than nothing.
The bookmakers offers on the 2018 US Masters Golf keep on coming, we already know that Skybet are paying out on 10 each-way places (as are Coral), and as well as that, we have 5 bookmakers paying out on 8 each-way places.
Below is a list of the bookmakers offering 8 each way places, along with the amount of odds they are paying out at.
Bet365 – Paying 8 each-way places at 1/5 of the odds

The big unification fight takes place at Cardiff on Saturday night between Anthony Joshua and Joseph Parker, where both boxers undefeated records – as well as their belts – will be on the line.
Joshua is a heavy odds on favourite to win the fight, although this week has seen a flood of money for Parker, and has seen Joshua’s odds drift from 1/8 to about 1/5. Still very short, in fairness. Parker is a 9/2 shot, with the draw at 33/1 or 40/1, depending on your bookmaker of choice.
There are some decent new customer offers on Joshua to win tonight, all of which represent a great chance to make some risk free cash using the matched betting method.
Starting with Betfair and Coral, who are both offering new customers 25/1 on Joshua to win. Paddy Power are offering 20/1 on the big man, while Ladbrokes are offering 25/1 on Joshua to win by Knock-Out. When you consider he is available to lay at just 1.23 on the Betfair Betting Exchange, you can see the scope for making risk free money on this fight.
