Translated into matched betting terms, this gives us a potential profit of £6.26 and here’s how…

If either team hits the crossbar, BoyleSports will double winnings on all pre-match markets as a free bet. The maximum stake for this offer is £20.00 and the maximum free bet is £500.00.
Just to clarify, the ball must strike the crossbar and rebound back into play. The side posts do not count for the purposes of this offer.
Having looked at the odds available, I’ve opted to place my qualifying bet on Switzerland in the Match Betting market.
I like to place my exchange lay bets with Betfair as they have great liquidity and the site is really easy to use.
We can calculate our lay stake using my matched betting calculator…
As you can see, the calculator tells us that our lay stake should be £20.63…
Place £20.00 on Switzerland @ 1.444 = Potential profit of £8.88
Lay £20.63 on Switzerland @ 1.45 = Potential liability of £9.28
Let’s have a look at our potential profit/loss for the possible outcomes…
|Switzerland win and crossbar not struck||+ £8.88 – £9.28 = £0.40 loss|
|Switzerland win and crossbar struck||+ £8.88 – £9.28 + £6.66 (extract 75% from £8.88 free bet) = £6.26 profit|
|Switzerland don't win||- £20.00 + £19.59 = £0.41 loss|
So, if Switzerland win and the crossbar is struck, we’ll make a nice profit of £6.26. However, if Switzerland don’t win or the crossbar isn’t struck, we’ll have made a maximum loss of £0.41. Risking £0.41 to make a profit of £6.26 gives us effective odds of 16.27, which I’m sure you’ll agree, makes this a profitable offer in the long run.
If eligible, free bets will be credited within 24 hours and will be valid for 7 days. Free bet stakes will not be included in any returns.
If you’re not sure how to extract 75% cash from a free bet, please see my Free Bet Strategy page for a walk-through guide on how it should be done.
