Despite the lack of mainstream football to bet on at the moment, there are still plenty of options and you won’t want to miss this Free Bet Club offer from Betfred! Simply place an in play bet on three different football matches across Saturday or Sunday and Betfred will give us a free bet equal to our average stake, up to £10.00. Translated into matched betting terms, this gives us a guaranteed profit of £6.80 and here’s how…

Key Terms:

  • To claim the maximum £10.00 free bet, we must place 3 bets totalling £30.00+.
  • Qualifying bets must be placed in play at odds of 1.50 (1/2) or greater.
  • Applies to different football matches taking place across Saturday 21st March 2020 or Sunday 22nd March 2020.

Qualifying Bets:

If you’re unfamiliar with qualifying bets, please see my Qualifying Bet Strategy page for a walk-through guide on how they should be done.

We can place our lay bets at Betfair or Smarkets.

We can calculate our lay stakes using the matched betting calculator.

Aim to lose no more than £0.40 on each of our 3 qualifying bets

So, we’ll lose approximately £1.20 in qualifying for our £10.00 free bet.

Free Bet:

Our £10.00 free bet will be credited by 12:00 on Monday 23rd March 2020 and will be valid until 09:00 on Tuesday 24th March 2020.

By using straightforward matched betting, we should be able to extract 80% cash from our £10.00 free bet, so £8.00. If we take into account our total qualifying loss of £1.20, this gives us a guaranteed profit of £6.80 on this Betfred offer!

    Dear Lord they are desperate!

    1. Now is a good time to get your money OUT of bookies. There is a list out there somewhere showing which bookies are likely to withstand this downturn and which are not. Read and take heed folks. If they go under, some of them will not have you at the top of their lists as creditors and you may well never see your money again.

    2. If you want to identify yourself as a ‘matched bettor’ then taking part in such obscure fixtures such as these and other offers (racing excepted) then carry on… the sensible choice is to only become active again once the normal sport returns.

      Withdrawing funds from some of the smaller bookies may well be sound advice.

      In terms of continuing matched betting on some of the more obscure markets, I think the current situation makes things a whole lot different to the usual advice.

      The counter argument to stopping matched betting is that if you’ve been betting regularly and then suddenly stop because there’s no mainstream sport, that in itself could be seen as a red flag. Mug punters will bet on anything so the whole thing is very much open to debate.

      My advice is always to mix things up as much as possible and keep the bookmakers guessing.

    Right now people would bet on two flies running up a wall so I don’t think there should be too much concern about betting on whatever is currently available.
