As you can see, the calculator tells us that our lay stake should be £20.41…

Place £20.00 on ‘2 or more goals in each 1:30pm English FA Cup match (normal time only)’ @ 4.50 = Potential profit of £70.00

Lay £20.41 on ‘Over 1.5 Goals In Each 1:30pm Sunday FA Cup Match’ @ 4.20 = Potential liability of £65.31


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

Note: If you would prefer to lock in a smaller profit, you can simply use the ‘Standard‘ tab on the calculator for a guaranteed profit of £1.09.
