I love the Money-Back Special offers from BetVictor because their odds are some of the most competitive around. If a Red Card is shown at any time during the Swansea City v Cardiff City match, BetVictor will refund losing Correct Score, First/Last/Anytime Goalscorer, Scorecast & Half-Time/Full-Time bets as a FREE BET up to £25.00. Translated into matched betting terms, this gives us a potential profit of £18.81! 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 red card being shown. Having looked at the odds on offer, I’ve opted for a 2-2 draw.
Place £25.00 on 2-2 draw @ BetVictor @ 20.00 = Potential profit of £475.00.
Lay £25.06 on 2-2 draw @ Betfair @ 20.00 = Potential liability of £476.14.
Let’s have a look at our potential profit/loss for the various outcomes…
|£475.00 – £476.14 = £1.14 loss|
Not 2-2 draw with red card
|-£25.00 + £23.81 + £20.00 (Assumes an 80% return from our £25.00 free bet) = £18.81 profit|
Not 2-2 draw without red card
|-£25.00 + £23.81 = £1.19 loss|
So we will win £18.81 if the game doesn’t finish 2-2 and there is a red card! If no red card is shown, we will make a maximum loss of £1.19, which I’m sure you’ll agree is a risk worth taking as the odds of a red card being shown are around 3.30.
