There’s a big day of racing at Aintree on Thursday and it’s time for another Sky Bet money back offer! If our horse finishes 2nd in the 14:20 Aintree, Sky Bet will refund our stake as cash, up to a maximum of £10.00. Translated into matched betting terms, this gives us a potential profit of £9.07 and here’s how…
- This offer applies to our first bet on the 14:20 Aintree.
- Qualifying bets must be placed between 11:00 on Tuesday 6th April 2021 and 14:20 (race-off) on Thursday 8th April 2021.
- If fewer than six runners come under starters orders, Sky Bet may withdraw the offer.
- If our horse finishes 2nd, Sky Bet will refund our stake as cash, up to £10.00.
If you’d like more information about qualifying bets and how they work, please see my qualifying bets guide.
It’s entirely up to you which horse you go for, but it would make sense to select a horse with fairly short odds in the hope of a 2nd place finish.
At the time of writing, Adagio is available at back odds of 2.50 (6/4) and lay odds of 2.72.
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 £9.26…
Place £10.00 on Adagio @ 2.50 = Potential profit of £15.00
Lay £9.26 on Adagio @ 2.72 = Potential liability of £15.92
Let’s have a look at our potential profit/loss for the possible outcomes…
So, we’ll make a nice profit of £9.07 if Adagio finishes 2nd and we stand to lose a maximum of £0.93 on any other outcome. Risking £0.93 to make a potential profit of £9.07 gives us effective odds of 10.75, which I’m sure you’ll agree, makes this a profitable offer in the long run.
If eligible, cash refunds will be credited within 72 hours of the race finishing.
