I love BetVictor free bet offers because their odds are some of the most competitive around. If Manchester City fail to qualify for the knockout stages of the Champions League, BetVictor will refund losing Correct Score, First/Last Anytime Goalscorer, Half-Time/Full-Time, Scorecast & Spincast as a FREE BET up to £10.00. Translated into matched betting terms, this gives us a potential profit of £7.07 and here’s how…

Whenever I do these BetVictor free bet offers, I always stick to the correct score market. I find the liquidity at the betting exchange is far better than goalscorer markets and I just feel more comfortable here. We need to select a scoreline that sees Manchester City win on the night (this sees Man City qualify provided CSKA Moscow don’t beat Bayern in Munich). This ensures that if they fail to qualify, we will automatically be eligible for a free bet refund as our qualifying bet will have lost. Having looked at the odds available, I’ve opted for a 2-0 Man City win.
Place £10.00 on 2-0 Man City @ 20.00 = Potential profit of £190.00
Lay £9.55 on 2-0 Man City @ 21.00 = Potential liability of £191.00
Let’s have a look at our potential profit/loss for the various outcomes…
2-0 Man City
|+£190.00 – £191.00 = £1.00 loss|
Not 2-0 Man City and they fail to qualify
|-£10.00 + £9.07 + £8.00 (Assumes an 80% return from our £10.00 free bet) = £7.07 profit|
Not 2-0 Man City and they qualify
|-£10.00 + £9.07 = £0.93 loss|
If you’re not sure how to extract 80% of our £10.00 free bet, please see my Free Bet Strategy page for a walkthrough guide on how it should be done.
So we will make £7.07 profit if the game doesn’t finish 2-0 to Manchester City and they fail to qualify! If the game finishes 2-0 to Manchester City or they do qualify, we will make a maximum loss of £1.00, which I’m sure you’ll agree is a risk well worth taking as the odds of Manchester City failing to qualify are currently 2.18.
