Outcomes:

Let’s have a look at our potential profit/loss for the possible outcomes…

Outcome Bookie Exchange Profit/Loss
Man Utd score first and win +£64.00 -£66.41 £2.41 loss
Man Utd score first and don't win +£64.00 +£17.59 £81.59 profit
Man Utd don't score first and win +£64.00 -£66.41 £2.41 loss
Man Utd don't score first and don't win -£20.00 +£17.59 £2.41 loss

So, if Man Utd score first and go on to draw or lose the game, we’ll receive cash returns of £84.00, giving us a profit of £64.00 at Betway. We’ll also win £17.59 from our lay bet at Betfair, giving us an overall potential profit of £81.59!

Any other outcome and we’ll lose £2.41. Risking £2.41 to make a profit of £81.59, gives us effective odds of 34.85, which I’m sure you’ll agree, makes this a profitable offer in the long run.

If eligible, our cash winnings will be credited within 10 minutes of the first goal being scored, but allow up to 24 hours.

Note: If your team scores first, you can either let it run as above or place an extra back bet on them to lock in a profit. If you decide to guarantee a profit, you just need to divide the sum of your potential loss and potential profit by the back odds. For example, if the back odds are 1.50 (1/2), you would divide £84.00 (£2.41 + £81.59) by 1.50, giving you a back stake of £56.00 and a guaranteed profit of £25.59.

* Man Utd scored first and went on to win the match 2-0, resulting in a loss of £2.41 on this Betway offer. *
