Getting Started with your Side Hustle From Home

Woman engaging in a side hustle from home

A side hustle is a way to make money outside of your normal job. It’s the most obvious way to earn extra income but, like all new ventures, it requires a bit of legwork and planning to make it happen.

Balancing these two things can be tricky, that’s why it’s important to choose a side hustle that can fit around your schedule and maximize your earnings based on the time you put into it.

In this guide, we’ll explain how you can start your matched betting side hustle from the comfort of your own home, discuss some things to consider and explain why matched betting is the perfect side hustle for you.

What is Matched Betting?

Matched Betting is a way of mathematically guaranteeing profit from sportsbook and casino free bet and bonus promotions. It is a risk free strategy that utilizes simple calculations to turn offers into profit.

Matched Betting has been going strong in Europe for well over a decade. Our sister site, OddsMonkey, has been helping people in the UK make money online for over 10 years. Now, the opportunity has come to the USA. 

You need no experience with placing bets or any knowledge of sports. We take you through the process, step by step.

Who are ProfitDuel?

ProfitDuel is a dedicated service that shows you how to make money from online sportsbook offers. We teach, guide, and support you every step of the way. We have developed special software the make the process easier, quicker and more accessible.

What do I need to start?

Essentially you just need to read the instructions and follow the step-by-step guides. You will need to sign up to the relevant sportsbooks when you reach that point in the guide, then you will need to place some bets (using our software to find the correct bets to place) to unlock the value of the free bets. This means you will need to deposit some of your own money into the sportsbooks.

You can start for as little as $25, but it may take you longer to progress through the promotional offers. If possible, we’d recommend starting with at least $50 to $100.  This slightly larger beginning bankroll will mean that you can progress through the first few offers more quickly and build up your profits and be ready to take on the larger and even more lucrative sign up offers.

If you have a bigger bankroll to begin with, you can take advantage of the larger sign up offers straight away as well as having an opportunity of progressing faster through the numerous offers.

It is worth noting that we do recommend starting with the smaller value offers in order to ensure that you become familiar with the process before you move on to the higher value offers, we provide our recommended order in which to complete the sign up offers on your personalized dashboard.

The best place to start is to sign up for our free trial. The free trial will allow you to make your first profits. If you follow the instructions, you will make money. There is no obligation to upgrade, you can just take your profits and never come back if you wish.


Is Matched Betting worth it?

We certainly think so. There are potentially thousands of dollars to be made. That’s not bad for a hobby or side hustle!

Do I need a separate bank account for matched betting?

You don’t but it’s not a bad idea if you decide to set a new account up just for Matched Betting. 

It’s easier to keep track of your money that way and it keeps your day-to-day account clear or sportsbook deposit transactions which may be hard to explain if you have to apply for a mortgage in the future.
