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

OutcomeSky BetBetfairProfit/Loss
Liverpool win+ £4.75– £5.02£0.27 loss
Liverpool lose or draw– £5.00+ £4.73£0.27 loss

So, regardless of whether Liverpool win, lose or draw, we’ll lose £0.27 in qualifying for our £5.00 free bet.

Free bet

Our £5.00 free bet will be credited upon placement of our qualifying bet and will be valid on any market. Free bets do not have an expiry date and free bet stakes are not included in any returns.

Using straightforward matched betting, we should be able to convert our free bet into 80% cash, so £4.00. If we take into account our qualifying loss of £0.27, this gives us a guaranteed profit of £3.73 on this Sky Bet offer!

* The match was drawn 0-0, resulting in a profit of £3.73 on this Sky Bet offer. *
