It’s Man Utd v Chelsea in the late kick-off on Sunday and you don’t want to miss this First Goal Wins offer from Betway! Simply bet up to £20.00 on Man Utd or Chelsea to win the match and if our selected team scores first, Betway will pay us out as a winner, in cash, no matter the final result! Translated into matched betting terms, this gives us a potential profit of £43.08 and here’s how…

Key Terms:

  • Minimum and maximum stakes of £5.00 and £20.00 respectively.
  • Qualifying single bets must be placed on Man Utd or Chelsea in the Win/Draw/Win market.
  • Qualifying bets must be placed before 16:30 (kick-off) on Sunday 11th August 2019.
  • If our selected team score first but don’t win, Betway will pay our bet out in cash, within 24 hours.

Qualifying Bet:

If you’re unfamiliar with qualifying bets, please see my Qualifying Bet Strategy page for a walk-through guide on how it should be done.

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…

Outcomes:

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

Outcome Bookie Exchange Profit/Loss
Man Utd score first and win +£24.00 -£24.92 £0.92 loss
Man Utd score first and don't win +£24.00 +£19.08 £43.08 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 £44.00, giving us a profit of £24.00 at Betway. We’ll also win £19.08 from our lay bet at Smarkets, giving us an overall potential profit of £43.08!

Any other outcome and we’ll lose £0.92. Risking £0.92 to make a profit of £43.08, gives us effective odds of 47.83, 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 £44.00 (£0.92 + £43.08) by 1.50, giving you a back stake of £29.33 and a guaranteed profit of £13.75.

* Man Utd scored first and went on to win the match 4-0, resulting in a loss of £0.92 on this Betway offer. *
