Place £10.00 worth of bets on Man Utd v Leicester and Sky Bet will give us a £5.00 free bet. Translated into matched betting terms, this gives us a guaranteed profit of £3.54 and here’s how…
- Qualifying bets must be placed between 19:45 on Tuesday 7th August 2018 and 20:00 (kick-off) on Friday 10th August 2018.

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 Full Time Result market.
At the time of writing, laying our bet at Smarkets gives us the smallest qualifying loss.
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 £9.74…
Place £10.00 on Man Utd @ 1.50 = Potential profit of £5.00
Lay £9.74 on Man Utd @ 1.56 = Potential liability of £5.45
Let’s have a look at our potential profit/loss for the possible outcomes…
|Man Utd win||+ £5.00 – £5.45 = £0.45 loss|
|Man Utd don't win||- £10.00 + £9.54 (£9.74 minus 2% commission) = £0.46 loss|
So, regardless of the outcome, we’ll lose a maximum of £0.46 in qualifying for our £5.00 free bet.
Our £5.00 free bet will be credited upon placement of our qualifying bet and will be valid for 7 days. Free bet stakes are not returned with any winnings.
By using straightforward matched betting, we should be able to extract 80% cash from the £5.00 free bet, so £4.00. If we take into account our maximum qualifying loss of £0.46, this gives us a guaranteed profit of £3.54 on this Sky Bet offer!
* Man Utd won the match 2-1, resulting in a profit of £3.55 on this Sky Bet offer. *
