Each Way Matcher
Each Way Matcher
Each Way Matcher is an advanced tool designed to help you increase your profits when betting each way.
Each way betting is usually done on horse racing, but can also be done on sports like golf. It’s a betting strategy where you place a bet on a horse to win and a second bet on the same horse to ‘place’. That means that it will finish in one of the positions pre-set by the bookmaker (usually the first 2, 3 or 4 places).
However, when matched betting, there’s another step to add to the process. You’ll need to place another bet – at the betting exchange. You need to ‘match’ your each way bets. Don’t worry if this sounds like a few too many plates to spin, because that’s where OddsMonkey’s Each Way Matcher comes into help. This tool makes matching when betting each way quicker and easier by finding and analysing the best each way odds.
Here’s a little more of what the Each Way Matcher can do:
- Rank the odds data to show which horse will give you a higher profit
- Combine bookmaker offers to extract even more value. This is useful if you have more than one offer that you want (or need) to use
- It can also be used on ‘gubbed’ or restricted bookmaker accounts
The runners and riders
With a layout similar to our other tools, Each Way Matcher shows you everything you need to know about the event. Get a brief overview of the race, the horse the bet is on, the bookmakers and exchanges and the latest odds.
Importantly, you’ll also see the number of runners who’ll be taking place in a race. The numbers in red are a warning. If too many racers drop out, the number of places may be affected, so make sure you know what’s going on!
Because there’s quite a few moving parts to an each way matched bet, you’ll be relieved to hear you’re not on your own when it comes to working everything out!
The calculator will work out the stake amounts for each of the 3 bets you’ll be placing:
- The each way back bet at the bookmaker.
- The lay bet in the exchange for the win part of your each way bet.
- The lay bet in the exchange for the place part of our each way bet.
Make it your own
Set an alert to make sure you never miss a thing. Set your alert limits and you’ll be notified when a matching selecting arises, even if you move away from the page.
Filter the results by sports, markets, bookmakers or more to make sure the Each Way Matcher finds the right each way betting opportunities for you.
Using the Each Way Matcher
At the bookmaker, each way bets are placed as one bet, but with the EW (Each Way) box on the bet slip ticked. This automatically places 2x stakes: one on the selection to win and the second on it to ‘place’. You’ll also need to place 2 bets (the win and the place), at the betting exchange.
Once you find a bet on the Each Way Matcher, open the calculator for further details of stakes. By default it’ll open with the stake available at the exchange, so you’d need to change your back stake to the required amount then click recalculate.
The top selection here opens with a £25 total back stake which has been changed to £5.00 total. This means a £2.50 each way bet. The top summary then changes to re-calculate the lay stakes.
Open the exchange to the selected race to check the lay odds are available and open the bookmaker to the same race too.
Then just follow Steps 1, 2 and 3 as per the top of the calculator pane.
Step 1: At the bookmaker, place a £2.50 each way bet, making sure you tick the EW box on the betslip and ensure the total stake says £5. Once you’ve confirmed it matches, place the back bet.
Step 2: Lay the win part of the bet. In this example, Each Way Matcher advises a lay bet of £2.24 @ 38. Once in the bet slip you can check that the liability matches that from the calculator. (£82.88 from the above image).
If everything’s looking good and the back bet’s been confirmed, go ahead and lay that bet
Step 3: Now it’s time to lay the place part of the bet. At the betting exchange, make ssure you have the Place tab selected. You can follow the direct link beside Step 3 to help you reach the right market.
Again, check the horse, odds, stake and liability on your bet slip matches that shown in Step 3 and when you’re sure it does, place that bet too. That’s all there is to it!
