Lay £8.94 on Schalke @ 1.81 = Potential liability of £7.24


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

Schalke win+ £6.00– £7.24£1.24 loss
Misfits win– £10.00+ £8.76£1.24 loss

So, no matter the outcome, we’ll lose £1.24 in qualifying for our £10.00 free bet.

Free bet

Our £10.00 free bet will be credited within 24 hours of our qualifying bet being settled and will be valid for 7 days. Free bet stakes are not included in any returns.

Using straightforward matched betting, we should be able to convert our free bet into 80% cash, so £8.00. If we take into account our qualifying loss of £1.24, this gives us a guaranteed profit of £6.76 on this Betway offer!
