2 Goals Ahead Early Payout Offer (2UP) – Bet365

Bundesliga football is back and that brings the return of Bet365’s ‘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.

There’s no limit on how many eligible 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 Wolfsburg to beat Augsburg.

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

Betfair are currently offering new customers 0% commission up to £500 for the first 30 days.

Place £50.00 on Wolfsburg @ 2.15 = Potential profit of £57.50

Lay £48.42 on Wolfsburg @ 2.24 = Potential liability of £60.04

No Early Payout:

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

OutcomeBookieExchangeProfit/Loss
Wolfsburg win+£57.50-£60.04£2.54 loss
Wolfsburg don't win-£50.00+£47.45£2.55 loss

So, worst case scenario, we’ll lose a maximum of £2.55 in qualifying for this offer.

Early Payout!

If Wolfsburg 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‘…

As you can see, our potential profit/loss is as follows now that Bet365 have paid out early…

OutcomeBookieExchangeProfit/Loss
Wolfsburg win+£57.50-£60.04£2.54 loss
Wolfsburg don't win+£57.50+£47.45+£104.94 profit

So, if we let things runs and Wolfsburg go on to win, we’ll still lose £2.54, but if Wolfsburg draw or lose, we’ll make a profit of £104.94!

Lock in Profit:

If we decide to lock in a profit, we’ll need to enter the back odds for Wolfsburg 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 £90.38 on Wolfsburg to win at Betfair.

Place £90.38 on Wolfsburg @ 1.20 = Potential profit of £18.08

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

OutcomeBookieExchangeProfit/Loss
Wolfsburg win+£57.50-£41.96+£15.54 profit
Wolfsburg don't win+£57.50-£41.96+£15.54 profit

So, regardless of the outcome, we would make a guaranteed profit of £15.54 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.

* Wolfsburg won the match 2-1, but didn’t go two goals up, resulting in a loss of £2.54 on this Bet365 offer. *
