Having looked at the odds available, we could place our qualifying bet on Man Utd in the Win/Draw/Win market.
If Man Utd score first and go on to draw or lose the match, Betway will pay our bet out as a winner, in cash.
At the time of writing, laying our bet at Smarkets gives us the smallest qualifying loss.
We can calculate our lay stake using my matched betting calculator…
As you can see, the calculator tells us that our lay stake should be £19.47…
Place £20.00 on Man Utd @ 2.20 = Potential profit of £24.00
Lay £19.47 on Man Utd @ 2.28 = Potential liability of £24.92
Let’s have a look at our potential profit/loss for the possible outcomes…
|Man Utd score first and win||+£24.00||-£24.92||£0.92 loss|
|Man Utd score first and don't win||+£4.00||+£19.08||£23.08 profit|
|Man Utd don't score first and win||+£24.00||-£24.92||£0.92 loss|
|Man Utd don't score first and don't win||-£20.00||+£19.08||£0.92 loss|
So, if Man Utd score first and go on to draw or lose the game, we’ll receive cash winnings of £24.00. Our stake is not returned though, giving us a profit of £4.00 at Betway. We’ll also win £19.08 from our lay bet at Smarkets, giving us an overall potential profit of £23.08!
Any other outcome and we’ll lose £0.92. Risking £0.92 to make a profit of £23.08, gives us effective odds of 26.09, which I’m sure you’ll agree, makes this a profitable offer in the long run.
If eligible, our cash winnings will be credited within 24 hours of the match ending.
Note: If your team scores first, you can either let it run as above or place an extra back bet on them to lock in a profit. If you decide to guarantee a profit, you just need to divide the sum of your potential loss and potential profit by the back odds. For example, if the back odds are 1.50 (1/2), you would divide £24.00 (£0.92 + £23.08) by 1.50, giving you a back stake of £16.00 and a guaranteed profit of £7.08.
