It’s Southampton v Man City in the Premier League on Saturday, and Betfair are getting in on the action! Place an Exchange bet of up to £10.00 on ‘Over 2.5 Goals’, and if your bet loses, your stake will be refunded as a free bet.

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 £5.04.

Place £10.00 on ‘Over 2.5 Goals’ @ 1.69 = Potential profit of £6.56

Lay £5.04 on ‘Over 2.5’ (Goals Over/Under) @ 1.70 = Potential liability of £3.52


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

Outcome Betfair Exchange Free Bet Profit/Loss
Over 2.5 goals + £6.56 – £3.52 £3.04 profit
Under 2.5 goals – £10.00 + £5.04 + £8.00 £3.04 profit

So, no matter the outcome, you’ll profit £3.04 on this Betfair Exchange offer!

If you’re unsure how to convert your £10.00 free bet into £8.00 cash (80%), please see my ‘Free Bets Guide‘ for a walkthrough.
