There’s midweek Bundesliga football to look forward to and that means more chances to hit the Bet365 ‘2 Goals Ahead Early Payout Offer’! Simply place a pre-match bet on any Bundlesliga Full Time Result market and if our team goes 2 goals ahead, Bet365 will pay out our bet in full, regardless of the final result! Translated into matched betting terms, this gives us a potential profit of £100.00+ and here’s how…

Key Terms:

  • Qualifying bets must be placed on the Full Time Result market.
  • Applies to all Bundesliga I matches.
  • If our selected team goes 2 goals ahead at any stage, Bet365 will pay out our bet in full regardless of the final result.

Qualifying Bets:

Early payout offers have been incredibly popular for a while now. In addition to Bet365’s offer, Paddy Power run a pretty much identical version, which they call ‘2 UP, YOU WIN‘.

I won’t go into the strategy too much here, but you can find a complete walk-through of how they should be done in my Early Payout Offers (2UP) guide.

Here’s a list of the Bundesliga matches scheduled for this week…

There’s no limit on how many matches you can place qualifying bets on and it’s entirely up to you which teams you go for. Having looked at the odds available, we could place a qualifying bet on Hoffenheim to beat FC Köln.

At the time of writing, laying our bet at Betfair gives us the smallest qualifying loss.

Place £50.00 on Hoffenheim @ 2.40 = Potential profit of £70.00

Lay £48.00 on Hoffenheim @ 2.52 = Potential liability of £72.96

No Early Payout:

Let’s have a look at our potential profit/loss if there’s no early payout…

OutcomeBookieExchangeProfit/Loss
Hoffenheim win+£70.00-£72.96£2.96 loss
Hoffenheim don't win-£50.00+£47.04£2.96 loss

So, worst case scenario, we’ll lose £2.96 in qualifying for this offer.

Early Payout!

If Hoffenheim go two goals up, we need to select the early payout toggle (in the grey section) to tell the calculator that ‘The bookmaker has paid out early‘…

Hoffenheim win+£70.00-£72.96£2.96 loss
Hoffenheim don't win+£70.00+£47.04+£117.04 profit

So, if we let things runs and Hoffenheim go on to win, we’ll still lose £2.96, but if Hoffenheim draw or lose, we’ll make a profit of £117.04!

Lock in Profit:

If we decide to lock in a profit, we’ll need to enter the back odds for Hoffenheim to win at Betfair. I’ll use back odds of 1.20 to illustrate how locking in a profit should work…

As you can see, the calculator tells us that we need to stake £100.80 on Hoffenheim to win at Betfair.

Place £100.80 on Hoffenheim @ 1.20 = Potential profit of £20.16

Now let’s have a look at our overall potential profit for the possible outcomes…

OutcomeBookieExchangeProfit/Loss
Hoffenheim win+£70.00-£52.80+£17.20 profit
Hoffenheim don't win+£70.00-£52.80+£17.20 profit

So, regardless of the outcome, we would make a guaranteed profit of £17.20 on this match!

We’ll make a small loss the majority of the time, but when the early payout is triggered, the returns can be very nice indeed. Feel free to place qualifying bets on more than one match, just try and keep your qualifying losses to a minimum.

* Hoffenheim went 2-0 up against Koln after 46 minutes, giving us a chance to lock in a profit. Hoffenheim went on to win the match 3-1, so letting it run resulted in a loss of £2.96 on this Bet365 offer. *

** Congratulations to anyone who backed SC Frieburg (13/5) against Frankfurt on Tuesday. SC Freiburg went 3-1 up, but a late Frankfurt comeback saw the match finish 3-3. A £50.00 stake would have netted you around £175.00 profit! **
