It’s Man Utd v Leicester in the Premier League on Friday and Coral are getting in on the action. Simply bet £10.00+ on Man Utd to win and Coral will give us a £5.00 free bet for every goal they score. Translated into matched betting terms, this gives us a potential profit of £11.61 and here’s how…
- Qualifying bets must be placed between 00:01 on Thursday 9th August 2018 and 20:00 (kick-off) on Friday 10th August 2018.
- We must bet £10.00+ on Man Utd in the Match Result market.
- £5.00 free bet for every Man Utd goal, up to a maximum total of £15.00.
If you’re unfamiliar with qualifying bets, please see my Qualifying Bet Strategy page for a walk-through guide on how they should be done.
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 £9.80…
Place £10.00 on Man Utd @ 1.50 = Potential profit of £5.00
Lay £9.80 on Man Utd @ 1.55 = Potential liability of £5.39
Let’s have a look at our potential profit/loss for the two outcomes…
|Man Utd win||+ £5.00 – £5.39 = £0.39 loss|
|Man Utd don't win||-£10.00 + £9.60 (£9.80 minus 2% commission) = £0.40 loss|
So, regardless of the outcome, we’ll lose a maximum of £0.40 in qualifying for our potential free bets.
For every goal that Man Utd score, we’ll receive a £5.00 free bet within 24 hours of the final whistle, up to a maximum total of £15.00. Free bets will be valid for 24 hours and free bet stakes are not included in any returns.
If Man Utd score three or more goals, we’ll receive £15.00 in free bets.
By using straightforward matched betting, we should be able to extract 80% cash from our £15.00 in free bets, so £12.00. If we take into account our minimum qualifying loss of £0.39, this gives us a potential profit of £11.61 on this Coral offer!
* Man Utd won the match 2-1, resulting in a profit of £7.61 on this Coral offer. *
