Qualifying bet

If your bet loses, your stake will be refunded as a free bet, so you can treat this as a Money back if bet loses offer.

You’ll need to build a bet that you can lay at a betting exchange in one bet. Please see my Bet Builders guide for more information about them and possible selections.

At the time of writing, ‘Liverpool / Under 2.5 goals‘ is available to back at odds of 5.00 (4/1).

You can lay ‘Liverpool/Under 2.5 Goals‘ in the ‘Match Odds and Over/Under 2.5 Goals‘ market at odds of 6.60.

If your qualifying bet is placed at odds of 5.00 (4/1) or greater and wins, 888sport will give you a £5.00 free bet, courtesy of their daily ‘4/1 Winner Offer’.

You can work out your lay stake using the ‘Money Back if Bet Loses‘ setting on my Matched Betting Calculator. You can enter £8.00 as your ‘Cashback’ figure as this is the amount you can expect to convert your £10.00 free bet into, should your bet lose…
