It’s a big festive period of sports action, and you don’t want to miss this Ladbrokes free bet offer! They’re giving selected customers a £1.00 free bet on any sport! Translated into matched betting terms, this gives you a potential profit of £6.50 and here’s how…

Key terms

Free bet

With the small free bet, I suspect many will be happy to punt this for a risk-free shot at a decent return.

It’s entirely up to you what you place your free bet on.

Looking at the odds available for Leeds v Man City (Wed 20:00), you could place your free bet on ‘Man City 2-0‘ in the ‘Correct Score‘ market at back odds of 7.50 (13/2).
