Betsafe In-Play Offer – NFL Bonus

September 11, 2015 / NFL / 9 Comments

Kick-off time (GMT): 10/09/2015 : 00:00

Guaranteed profit
£32.00

Defending Super Bowl champs New England Patriots kick off the new NFL season and Betsafe are running an in-play offer, you won’t want to miss. Simply place 5 or more LIVE bets of £5.00 or more on any NFL markets this week and Betsafe will credit us with a bonus equal to 50% of our net profit, up to a maximum of £100.00!  Translated into matched betting terms, this gives us a guaranteed profit of at least £32.00 and here’s how…

Betsafe NFL

This Betsafe offer is available from Thursday 10th September 2015 until 05:20 on Tuesday 15th September 2015.

YOU MUST ‘JOIN IN’ TO BE ELIGIBLE FOR THE BONUS!

 

Qualifying Bet:

If you’re unfamiliar with qualifying bets, please see my Qualifying Bet Strategy page for a walk-through guide on how they should be done.

This isn’t the easiest offer there has ever been, so if you’re unsure about anything, I would advise sitting this one out.  If on the other hand, you’re okay with everything and fancy it, here are my thoughts…

It’s impossible to know what odds are going to be available as this is an in-play offer.  Having read through the terms of the offer, we can place our bets on any in-play NFL market, so I think our best bet is to target the match odds markets. It’s always best to place NFL in-play bets during an interval as there is less chance of the odds fluctuating whilst we are trying to place our back and lay bets. I will be trying to find a selection as close to 2.00 (Evens) as I can. Obviously, it goes without saying that we will need really good lay odds.

In order to claim the maximum bonus of £100.00, we will need net winnings of £200.00.  Any bonus we receive will need to be rolled over once at minimum odds of 1.50 before it can be withdrawn.  By using straightforward matched betting, we should be able to extract 95% of the bonus as cash, so £95.00.

Say for example we place our live bet on Buffalo Bills at 2.00 (Evens)… We know that if Buffalo Bills win, we won’t just receive the £200.00 cash winnings, we will also receive a £100.00 bonus, from which we can extract £95.00.  So in effect our £200.00 bet will return £295.00 profit which means we are actually placing our bet at effective odds of 2.475.

I like to place my exchange lay bets with Smarkets as they have great liquidity, the site is really easy to use and they only charge 2% commission in comparison to the 5% charged by other betting exchanges.  We can calculate our lay stake using the matched betting calculator.

betsafe

Place £200.00 on Buffalo Bills @ 2.475 = Potential profit of £295.00

smarkets white

Lay £237.98 on Buffalo Bills @ 2.10 = Potential liability of £261.78

Let’s have a look at our potential profit/loss for the two outcomes…

Buffalo Bills win +£295.00 – £261.78 = £33.22 profit
Buffalo Bills don't win -£200.00 + £233.22 = £33.22 profit

So if Buffalo Bills don’t win, we’ll make £33.22 profit and that’s us finished with this offer.  If, however, Buffalo Bills do win, we would still need to place 4 further qualifying bets to be eligible for our bonus.  We could simply place these at the minimum stake of £5.00 on really low odds, so that any losses don’t eat into our net profit too much.  All in all, if this offer is done correctly and we’re able to get some nice odds, we should make a guaranteed profit of at least £32.00!

    My local bookies are offering a £5 matched bet instore ie. bet £5 and get a £10 bet. It's only on 1 market per day, today's bet is on the 3.05 at Doncaster today. I backed Havanna Beat @ 15.0 but I'm unsure what stake my lay should be? I'm unsure if the free £5 part of the bet is returned (probably not)

    I let my bet run and lost, it was only £5 so put that down to poor management but I can do these bets in several stores tomorrow and recoup my losses.

    Any help?

      All you need to do is enter the back and lay odds on the matched betting calculator and it will calculate the lay stake for you.

        I'm confused if I should be entering £5 or £10 as my stake? I'm risking £5 of my own but the bet is worth £10. I'm also unsure if the £5 free that the bookie adds is returned.

        Can we have a forum? I know I asked before but deals like this would be useful to some. I'm also a poker player and would have good info for the free money available in the game.

          If your qualifying bet is £5.00, you should enter £5.00. A forum will be available shortly for discussions pertaining to matched betting.

    Thanks Matt. I'll try breaking this one down on as 4 x 50 bets instead of risking >200 liability in case they limit my account. I'm wondering will alarm bells start going off if they spot my trend is to bet 200 first and then 4x5 bets if first wins. I've done this twice before with BetSafe.

      The trouble with that strategy is it makes it harder to get to £200 net profit to claim your 50% bonus.

    Hi Matt - I might be missing something ... but I can't see this NFL offer on the Betsafe site? Does it only show during games or has it finished? Thanks!
