I know it’s a long shot guys but I couldn’t resist this Paddy Power free bet offer.  Simply back Phil Taylor or Raymond van Barneveld to win the match and if the match is won with a 100+ checkout, Paddy Power will refund losing bets as a free bet up to a maximum of £100.00.  Translated into matched betting terms, this gives us a potential profit of £82.18 and here’s how…




Qualifying Bet:

If you’re unfamiliar with qualifying bets, please see my Qualifying Bet Strategy page for a walkthrough guide on how to place your qualifying bets.

It’s entirely up to you whether you back Phil Taylor or Raymond van Barneveld but I just got some great odds on Taylor!


Place £100.00 on Taylor @ 1.28 = Potential profit of £28.00


Lay £107.56 on Taylor @ 1.24 = Potential liability of £25.81

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


Taylor wins +£28.00 – £25.81 = £2.19 profit
Van Barneveld wins by throwing 100+ checkout -£100.00 + £102.18 + £80.00 (extract 80% from our £100.00 free bet) = £82.18 profit
Van Barneveld wins but doesn't throw a winning 100+ checkout -£100.00 + £102.18 = £2.18 profit


So regardless of the outcome of the match, we will make a minimum guaranteed profit of £2.18!  If Van Barneveld does manage to win the match with a 100+ checkout, we will make a massive profit of £82.18!  If you’re not sure how to extract 80% of the £100.00 free bet refund, please see my Free Bet Strategy page for a walkthrough guide on how it should be done.

    What a cracker – odds have come in now, wish I’d have have seen it sooner, good luck!

      There’s still plenty of time Simon, just keep an eye on the odds. Might even be worth a go if you can limit your potential loss to a couple of quid. I’m keeping an eye on the other semi-final too but the odds aren’t quite tight enough.

  2. Alan

    I’ve done both matched. gotta be worth it for a £2.50 loss

      Didn’t quite come off today, but worth a go!
