It’s Man Utd v Arsenal on Wednesday and you don’t want to miss this Money Back Special from Paddy Power. Simply place a bet on selected markets and if Man Utd beat Arsenal, Paddy Power will refund all losing bets as a free bet, up to a maximum of £10.00. Translated into matched betting terms, this gives us a potential profit of £6.20 and here’s how…
- Qualifying bets must be placed between 12:00 on Friday 30th November 2018 and 20:00 (kick-off) on Wednesday 5th December 2018.
- The eligible markets are First/Last/Anytime Goalscorer, Correct Score and WhatOddsPaddy.
- If our first bet loses and Man Utd win the match, Paddy Power will refund our stake as a free bet, up to £10.00.

It’s entirely up to you what you place your qualifying bet on. Our best option is likely to be the Correct Score market. Ideally, we should select a scoreline that doesn’t see Man Utd win the match, but it depends on the odds that are available.
Having looked at the odds available, we could place our qualifying bet on a 1-1 draw (6/1).
We can calculate our lay stakes using my matched betting calculator.
Let’s have a look at our potential profit/loss for the possible outcomes…
|1-1 draw||+ £60.00 – £61.80 = £1.80 loss|
|Not a 1-1 draw and Man Utd win||- £10.00 + £8.20 + £8.00 (extract 80% from our £10.00 free bet) = £6.20 profit|
|Not a 1-1 draw and Man Utd don't win||- £10.00 + £8.20 = £1.80 loss|
So, we’ll make a nice profit of £6.20 if Man Utd win and we stand to lose around £1.80 on any other outcome. Risking £1.80 to make a profit of £6.20, gives us effective odds of 4.44. So, given that Man Utd are odds of just 2.40 (7/5) to win the match, this is a profitable offer in the long run.
If eligible, free bets will be credited within two hours of the match ending and will be valid for 7 days on football markets.
