Actual Profit

It’s Arsenal v Chelsea in the FA Cup Final on Saturday and you don’t want to miss this Betway early payout offer! Simply bet up to £10.00 on Arsenal or Chelsea to win the match and if our selected team scores first, Betway will pay us out as a winner, in cash, no matter the final result! Translated into matched betting terms, this gives us a potential profit of £30.76 and here’s how…

Key Terms:

  • Maximum qualifying stake of £10.00.
  • Qualifying single bets must be placed on Arsenal or Chelsea in the Win/Draw/Win market.
  • Qualifying bets must be placed before 17:30 (kick-off) on Saturday 1st August 2020.
  • If our selected team score first, Betway will pay our bet out in cash, within minutes.

Qualifying Bet:

If you’re unfamiliar with early payout offers, please see my Bet365 Early Payout (2UP) guide for a walk-through guide on how they should be done.

Having looked at the odds available, we could place our qualifying bet on Arsenal. If Arsenal score first, Betway will pay our bet out as a winner.

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

Lay £8.94 on Arsenal @ 3.60 = Potential liability of £23.24

No Early Payout:

Let’s have a look at our potential profit/loss if Arsenal don’t score first…

Outcome Bookie Exchange Profit/Loss
Arsenal win +£22.00 -£23.24 £1.24 loss
Arsenal don't win -£10.00 +£8.76 £1.24 loss

So, worst case scenario, we’ll lose £1.24 in qualifying for this offer.

Early Payout!

If Arsenal score first, 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 Betway have paid out early…

Outcome Bookie Exchange Profit/Loss
Arsenal win +£22.00 -£23.24 £1.24 loss
Arsenal don't win +£22.00 +£8.76 £30.76 profit

So, if we let things run and Arsenal go on to win, we’ll still lose £1.24, but if Arsenal draw or lose, we’ll make a profit of £30.76!

Lock in Profit:

If we decide to lock in a profit, we’ll need to enter the back odds for Arsenal to win at Betfair. I’ll use back odds of 1.80 to illustrate how locking in a profit should work…

As you can see, the calculator tells us that we need to stake £17.88 on Arsenal to win at Betfair.

Place £17.88 on Arsenal @ 1.80 = Potential profit of £14.30

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

Outcome Bookie Exchange Profit/Loss
Arsenal win +£22.00 -£8.94 £13.06 profit
Arsenal don't win +£22.00 -£8.94 £13.06 profit

So, regardless of the outcome, we would make a guaranteed profit of £13.06 on this match!

If eligible, our cash winnings will be credited within minutes of the first goal being scored, but allow up to 24 hours.

* Chelsea scored first and went on to lose the match 2-1, resulting in a loss of £1.24 on this Betway offer. *
