Betfair Exchange – Man Utd v Tottenham Offer

It’s Man Utd v Tottenham in the Premier League on Wednesday night, and Betfair are getting in on the action! Place an Exchange bet of up to £10.00 on ‘Both Teams to Score – Yes’, and if your bet loses, your stake will be refunded as a free bet. Translated into matched betting terms, this gives you a profit of £2.77 and here’s how…

Key terms

  • Applies to bets placed between 12:00 on Tuesday 18th October 2022 and 20:15 (kick-off) on Wednesday 19th October 2022.
  • Applies to your first bet placed on the selected market only.
  • Applies to back bets only; lay bets do not qualify.

  • Betfair Rewards ‘Basic’ customers are excluded from this promotion.
  • If eligible, your free bet will be credited within 24 hours.

Qualifying bet

If your qualifying bet loses, Betfair will refund your stake as a free bet, so you can treat this as a ‘Money Back if Bet Loses‘ 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 that is the amount you can expect to convert your £10.00 free bet into, should your bet lose.
