It’s entirely up to you what you place your qualifying bet on. Having looked at the odds available, we could place our qualifying bet on England in the Match Winner market at back odds of 1.909 (10/11). The lay odds are currently 2.02.
We can calculate our lay stake using my Matched Betting Calculator…
As you can see, the calculator tells us that our lay stake should be £9.55…
Place £10.00 on England @ 1.909 = Potential profit of £9.09
Lay £9.55 on England @ 2.02 = Potential liability of £9.74
Let’s have a look at our potential profit/loss for the possible outcomes…
So, no matter the outcome, we’ll lose £0.65 in qualifying for our £5.00 free bet.
Our £5.00 free bet will be credited by 14:00 on Sunday 14th March 2021 and will be valid until 09:00 on Monday 15th March 2021. Although the promotion page suggests using the free bet on Scotland v Ireland, Betfred free bets can usually be used on any sports market.
Using straightforward matched betting, we should be able to convert our free bet into 80% cash, so £4.00. If we take into account our qualifying loss of £0.65, this gives us a guaranteed profit of £3.35 on this Betfred offer!
