Kick-off time (GMT): 01/01/2017 : 13:30
Tottenham are the visitors to Vicarage Road today and Ladbrokes are getting in on the action! Place a £20.00 in play mobile bet on Watford v Tottenham and Ladbrokes will give us a £10.00 free in play bet to be used on Middlesbrough v Leicester City on Monday. Translated into matched betting terms, this gives us a guaranteed profit of £6.00 and here’s how…
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.
This offer is available to both new and existing customers. Qualifying bets must be placed via MOBILE or TABLET, to be eligible.
To qualify for the £10.00 free bet, we must place a bet of £20.00 or more in play on Watford v Tottenham, which kicks off at 13:30 on Sunday 1st January 2017.
It’s entirely up to you what you place your qualifying bet on, as long as you place it in play at the minimum odds of 1.50 (1/2) or greater. I recommend placing our qualifying bets at half-time when the odds are fairly stable, as it reduces the risk of the odds fluctuating unfavourably whilst we are trying to get our lay bets on.
I like to place my exchange lay bets with Smarkets as they have great liquidity, the site is really easy to use and they only charge 2% commission in comparison to the 5% charged by other betting exchanges.
We can calculate our lay stakes using the matched betting calculator.
Our £10.00 free in play bet will be credited upon kick-off of Middlesbrough v Leicester City (12:30 on Monday 2nd January 2017) and must be used in play on the same game.
Again, we should place our free in play bet at half-time, to reduce the risk of the odds fluctuating unfavourably whilst we are trying to get our lay bets on.
By using straightforward matched betting, we should be able to extract at least 75% of the £10.00 free bet as cash, so around £7.50. If we take into consideration our qualifying loss of £1.50, we should make a guaranteed profit of £6.00 on this Ladbrokes offer!
