Qualifying bet

If your qualifying bet loses, Betfair will refund your stake as a free bet, so you can treat this as a ‘Money Back if Bet Loses‘ offer.

You can work out your lay stake using the ‘Money Back if Bet Loses‘ setting on my Matched Betting Calculator. You can enter ‘£8.00‘ as your ‘Cashback’ figure as that is the amount you can expect to convert your £10.00 free bet into, should your bet lose.

As you can see, the calculator tells you that your lay stake should be £5.28.

Place £10.00 on ‘West Ham to win’ @ 1.79 = Potential profit of £7.50

Lay £5.28 on ‘West Ham’ (Full-time result) @ 1.80 = Potential liability of £4.22


Let’s look at your profit/loss for the possible outcomes.

Outcome Betfair Exchange Free Bet Profit/Loss
West Ham win + £7.50 – £4.22 £3.28 profit
West Ham lose or draw – £10.00 + £5.28 + £8.00 £3.28 profit

So, no matter the outcome, you’ll profit £3.28 on this Betfair Exchange offer!
