So the only thing made today bearable watching $terling run out for City (I’m a bitter Liverpool fan, but I do wish him all the best, honestly) was the fact I knew I could make £35-£40 guaranteed on the match thanks to a fantastic offer from bookmaker bet365.
Hopefully the readers of this will have some existing knowledge of matched betting, if not you can head to our homepage and get some quick info.
I am going to explain how I made £35 profit risk free on Man City vs Chelsea today.
So Bet 365 offer was that if you place a £50 bet before the match kicked off they would give you a £50 risk free bet in-play, now there is a few things I should stress. Firstly, a risk free bet is not the same as a free bet; you must stake your own money on the £50 risk free bet and if it loses Bet365 will refund the whole stake. Secondly finding a match between your back and lay bet can be a little stressful but if you wait until half-time the market stabilises and become a lot easier to find close matched.
So the first thing I did was calculate my qualifying bet using our matched betting calculator (found in bookie bashing toolkit), thanks to the back and lay calculator I made a £2 loss on my bet, and knew that regardless of outcome I would recoup £48 back off my original stake (I backed and played the draw by the way). Now this £2 loss is totally worth it because I have qualified for their offer of a risk free bet in-play.
So now I waited until half-time by which point City were only 1-0 up despite Agüero bullying John Terry for 45 minutes, I looked for as close matches I could find at odds around 6.0 which I found to be a draw again (the odds had moved due to scoreline). I again used our Calculator, but this time the Free Bet Calculator which factors in stake not returned, backed and played the draw with the stake recommended. Again I knew regardless of the result at full-time one of my bets would win £37.12, if you take in to consideration that I lost £2 on my qualifying bet that makes a £35 profit.
