I love the offers from BetVictor because their odds are some of the most competitive around. If a Penalty is scored at any time during the Roma v Juventus match, BetVictor will refund losing Correct Score, First/Last Goalscorer, Scorecast, Half-Time/Full-Time & Anytime Goalscorer bets as a FREE BET up to £10.00. Translated into matched betting terms, this gives us a potential profit of £7.30! And here’s how…
Whenever I do these sort of 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 correct score and hope it doesn’t come in, as only losing bets are refunded in the event of a penalty being scored by either side. Having looked at the odds on offer, I’ve opted for a 1-1 draw.
Place £10.00 on 1-1 draw @ BetVictor @ 7.00 = Potential profit of £60.00.
Lay £9.79 on 1-1 draw @ Betfair @ 7.20 = Potential liability of £60.70.
Let’s have a look at our potential profit/loss for the various outcomes…
|1-1 draw||£60.00 – £60.70 = £0.70 loss|
|Not 1-1 draw with penalty scored||-£10.00 + £9.30 + £8.00 (Assumes an 80% return from our £10.00 free bet) = £7.30 profit|
|Not 1-1 draw without penalty scored||-£10.00 + £9.30 = £0.70 loss|
So we will win £7.30 if the game doesn’t finish 1-1 and there is a penalty scored! If no penalty is scored, we will make a loss of £0.70, which I’m sure you’ll agree is a risk worth taking as the odds of a penalty being awarded are around 3.45.
