Free bets

Your £5.00 in free bets will be credited by 12:00 on Sunday 8th January 2023, and valid until 09:00 on Monday 9th January 2023.

Although the promotion page suggests using the free bets on Sunday’s football matches, Betfred’s free bets can usually be used on any sports market.

Using straightforward matched betting, you should convert your £5.00 in free bets into 80% cash, so £4.00. Considering your expected qualifying loss of £0.50 gives you a profit of £3.50 on this Betfred offer!
