Qualifying bet

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

You’ll need to build a bet you can lay at a betting exchange in one bet. Please see my ‘Bet Builders‘ guide for more information about them and possible selections.

At the time of writing, ‘Draw (Result) / Under 2.5 (Total goals)‘ is available to back at odds of 4.00 (3/1).

You can layDraw / under 2.5 goals‘ at Smarkets in their ‘Winner and over – 2.5‘ market at odds of 4.30.

If your qualifying bet is placed at odds of 5.00 (4/1) or greater and wins, 888sport will give you a £5.00 free bet, courtesy of their daily ‘4/1 Winner Offer’.

Betfair and Smarkets are both great options for this offer. If you’ve not used one of them, now is a great time to give them a try.

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 this 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 £7.44.
