Premium vs free services can be a bit of a dilemma for matched bettors. After all, we all want to keep our qualifying losses down to a minimum so the thought of a monthly subscription can be a bit daunting. But can the cost of a monthly subscription be beneficial in the overall profit you can make? This all depends on your current situation, how much you bet or how many hours a week you spend actively tackling offers and promotions.
If you are a casual matched bettor then we would recommend you stick with The Bet Adviser blog due to our service being completely free to use. However, if you feel like you want to get more bang for your buck then the services on offer from OddsMonkey are some of the best around and can really boost your monthly profits.
So, what is OddsMonkey?
Simply put, OddsMonkey is a premium matched betting service that offers and all in one approach. They launched their all in one services back in April 2016 and since then have grown to become the biggest and best subscription based matched betting service online. They offer feature rich tools, fantastic guides for new and existing matched bettors and a huge community forum that’s packed with new betting techniques, offers and helpful members.
How much does OddsMonkey cost?
OddsMonkey offer a very competitive subscription service that is not only cheaper than many other subscription services but also offer much better features. The current monthly subscription costs £17.99 a month or the option to pay a full years subscription for only £150.00 which works out to be £12.50 a month! Furthermore OddsMonkey offer a 30 day money back guarantee!
Unlike other services OddsMonkey believe in offering their customers the best possible value they can – this is why they offer a price for life guarantee. If their subscription prices increase you will still only pay at the rate you initially signed up at – many members on OddsMonkey pay a lot less than the current subscription fee due to this but still have complete access to every tool, every guides and future updates.
What tools do they have?
The question is, what tools don’t they have? With over 25 tools available on the site we can’t list them all, but we shall however talk about some of the main ones.
The first tool OddsMonkey ever offered is their Oddsmatcher. This tool, in our opinion is the best and most powerful we have come across. It scans the odds from over 90 bookmakers in real time and offers a vast array of different settings. Not only can you define a specific bookmaker, you can break down your search to specific sports. It also gives you a rating indicating whether a bet is value or not and tells you how much liquidity is available at the exchange. It’s that powerful you can even use their integration service for Betfair Exchange and Smarkets and place your lay bets directly through it! All of these features will save you a huge amount of time in finding the closest odds.
Extra Place Matcher
The Extra Place Matcher makes light work of finding cheap extra place shots or a nice way to define whether a horse is value or not. This tool will do all the calculations for you and tell you how much to lay on the win and the place for the optimal qualifying loss along with the potential profit if your horse finishes on the extra place. Much like the Oddsmatcher, the Extra Place Matcher will also tell you how much liquidity is available at the exchange.
Profit tracking can be a tiresome job but is an essential job so we know how much money we have made. The Profit Tracker on OddsMonkey makes light work of this allowing you to input your bets in amazing detail. We can create an entry, selecting the bookmaker, type of bet, exchange used, sport and date along with a few other options. Once we submit the entry it will appear in our profit tracker with all the total sums added. We can also go back to previous months, search for entries and modify if needed.
As we said earlier OddsMonkey offer so many tools we couldn’t talk in depth about them all but here are a few more notable tools available via their subscription service:
- Racing Matcher
- Tennis Matcher
- Dutching Matcher
- Various accumulator matchers
- Early payout calculator
- Win bonus calculator
Games and Casino offers
OddsMonkey don’t just provide your typical matched betting services. They also include a huge amount of games, casino and bingo offers that can be profitable by working out the expected value of the offer. This can make games and casino offers very profitable while being relatively low risk and increasing the longevity of your accounts.
From time to time OddsMonkey will offer commission saving deals as part of your membership package at certain exchanges. In the past they have ran 0% commission deals with Smarkets saving you a pretty penny on commission and are currently offers 0% commission at BETDAQ.
You don’t need a subscription service or OddsMonkey to make matched betting profitable. We believe for many people, especially the more casual matched bettors that our service will suffice as we offer the basic tools required along with the best new and existing customer offers available.
However, if you are looking for more then we feel it would be silly not to sign up for OddsMonkey especially as they are currently offering 0% commission with BETDAQ, along with a 30 day money back guarantee. If you decide OddsMonkey isn’t for you then you can cancel your membership at any time within 30 days and receive a full refund!
