It’s Arsenal v Chelsea in the FA Cup Final on Saturday and you don’t want to miss this BoyleSports risk-free bet offer! Simply place a pre-match bet of up to £10.00 on Arsenal v Chelsea and if it loses, BoyleSports will refund your stake back as a free bet. Translated into matched betting terms, this gives us a guaranteed profit of £5.47 and here’s how…

Key Terms:

  • This offer is only available on mobile or in shop using a BoyleXtra card.
  • Place a bet of up to £10.00 on any Arsenal v Chelsea market.
  • Qualifying bets must be placed before 17:30 (kick-off) on Saturday 1st August 2020.
  • If our first bet loses, BoyleSports will refund our stake as a free bet.

Qualifying Bet:

If our first bet loses, our stake will be refunded as a free bet, so we can treat this as a risk-free bet offer.

We’ll need to place our bet at long odds in order to maximise our profit.

Having looked at the odds available, we could place our qualifying bet on a 2-2 draw (12/1) in the Correct Score market.

At the time of writing, laying our bet at Betfair gives us the biggest guaranteed profit.

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

We can work out our lay stake by using the ‘Risk-Free Bet’ setting on my matched betting calculator. We can enter £8.00 as our ‘Cashback’ figure as this is the amount we can expect to extract (80%) from our £10.00 free bet refund, should our bet lose…

    Been barred from promotions on this site, would advise against using them.

    Tim P, getting gubbed is part and parcel of matched betting, though Boyles are quicker than others. This was in fact the last offer I participated in before getting hit with the hammer. I’m actually surprised it took them that long.

    Boyles are actually good for promotions – just don’t be surprised when they finally sniff you out!
