We can calculate our lay stakes using my Matched Betting Calculator…
As you can see, the calculator tells us that our lay stake should be £9.71…
Place £10.00 on ‘Both Teams To Score – No’ @ 2.00 = Potential profit of £10.00
Lay £9.71 on ‘Both teams to Score? – No’ @ 2.08 = Potential liability of £10.48
Let’s have a look at our potential profit/loss for the possible outcomes…
So, regardless of the outcome, we’ll lose a maximum of £0.49 in qualifying for our potential free bet.
We’ll receive a £5.00 free bet if Sterling or Fernandes score. Free bets will be credited by 17:00 on Monday 8th March 2021 and will be valid until 09:00 on Tuesday 9th March 2021.
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 minimum qualifying loss of £0.48, this gives us a potential profit of £3.52 on this Betfred offer!
Risking a potential loss of £0.49 to make a potential profit of £3.52 gives us effective odds of 8.18. So, given that Sterling and Fernandes are odds of 2.50 (6/4) and 3.75 (11/4) respectively to score anytime, this is a profitable offer in the long run.
* Fernandes scored in a 2-0 win for Man Utd, resulting in a profit of £3.51 on this Betfred offer. *
