The £50.00 Bet365 in play offer is back! Place a pre-match bet on the Juventus v Real Madrid game and Bet365 will give us a risk-free in-play bet to the same stake (up to a maximum of £50.00) on the big match. These Bet365 free bet offers don’t usually come around often enough, but when they do, there are big profits to be made. We can make a guaranteed minimum profit of £29.44 with this offer and here’s how…
Our in-play bet will be risk-free. This means that we are required to place the in-play bet using our own funds and if this in-play bet loses, Bet365 will refund it in full in cash (which is withdrawable straight away). It is worth noting that although the current odds for the draw (at the time of writing) are 3.25, this will usually drop slightly when the game kicks off and therefore I have adjusted the odds accordingly in the following example…
Place £50.00 (pre-match) on Real Madrid @ 2.50 = Returns £125.00
Place £55.56 (in-play) on a draw @ 3.15 = Returns £175.00
I’d like to add at this point that it’s always best to stick to round numbers when placing your bets as odd amounts such as £55.56 can easily be flagged up as a matched bet. You could instead place £55.00 or even £50.00 and adjust the other numbers accordingly or place the difference with another bookmaker.
Let’s have a look at our potential profit/loss for the three potential outcomes…
|Outcome||Returns||Total Outlay||Overall Profit|
|Juventus win||125.00 + 50.00 (refund) = 175.00||145.56||£29.44|
|Real Madrid win||125.00 + 50.00 (refund) = 175.00||145.56||£29.44|
So as you can see, no matter what the result of the game, we stand to make a guaranteed minimum profit of £29.44 on this Bet365 in play offer! How long did that take? 10 minutes?
If the odds change between now and kick-off, which is almost a certainty, it’s really easy to recalculate your pre-match stakes.
Start by working out your returns on the pre-match Real Madrid bet. So if the Real Madrid odds have changed to 2.40, your returns would now be £120.00 + £50.00 refund.
All you then have to do is divide the £120.00 by the odds (in decimal form) for Juventus to get your pre-match stake. To work out your in play stake for the draw, you will need to divide the £170.00 by the odds (in decimal form) for the draw. Any problems, just give me a shout!
* These Bet365 in play offers are by far the best around but for those of you who have never come across matched betting, there are so many more offers to profit from. I’ve made over £3,800 risk-free profit since the start of 2014 and my profit log shows how I’ve made and lost every penny. Feel free to have a read of my matched betting guide and give it a go.
