Free bet

It’s entirely up to you how you play this offer.

We could take a speculative approach and not lay our Bet Builder bet. If our free bet loses, we simply break even and there’s no harm done.

Our other option is to convert our free bet into cash by laying it at a betting exchange.

So, looking at the Bet Builder selections available, we could place our free bet on Croatia win / Both teams to Score? – Yes at back odds of 12.27. The lay odds are currently 15.50.

We can calculate our lay stake using my Matched Betting Calculator.
