Place £10.00 on Croatia @ 6.50 = Potential profit of £55.00

Betfair logo

Lay £9.05 on Croatia @ 7.20 = Potential liability of £56.11


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

Croatia win+ £55.00– £56.11£1.11 loss
Croatia lose or draw– £10.00+ £8.86£1.14 loss

So, no matter the outcome, we’ll lose a maximum of £1.14 in qualifying for our potential free bets.

Free bets

We’ll receive a £2.00 free bet for each of the specified outcomes. Free bets will be credited within 24 hours of our qualifying bet being settled and will be valid for 7 days on any sport.

Using straightforward matched betting, we should be able to convert any free bet into 80% cash.

Therefore, if all five outcomes occur, we should be able to get £8.00 cash from our £10.00 in free bets. If we take into account our qualifying loss of £1.14, this gives us a potential profit of £6.86 on this NetBet offer!

* England won the match 1-0, resulting in a profit of £0.46 on this NetBet offer. *
