Man Utd v Man City Offer – Space Casino

It’s Man Utd v Man City in the Premier League on Saturday and you don’t want to miss this Space Casino money back offer. Simply place a £10.00+ bet on selected Man Utd v Man City markets and if our bet loses and Man Utd score exactly twice, Space Casino will give us a £5.00 free bet. Translated into matched betting terms, this gives us a potential profit of £3.58 and here’s how…

Key Terms:

  • Minimum stake of £10.00.
  • Qualifying bets must be placed before 17:30 (kick-off) on Saturday 12th December 2020.
  • Applies to the 1X2 Full Time and Exact Score markets for Man Utd v Man City.
  • If our bet loses and Man Utd score exactly twice (e.g. 2-0, 2-1, 2-2, 2-3, etc), Space Casino will give us a £5.00 free bet.

Qualifying Bet:

If you’d like more information about qualifying bets and how they work, please see my qualifying bets guide.

It’s entirely up to you what you place your qualifying bet on. We should select something that we don’t think will win, so that we’re eligible for the free bet if Man Utd score exactly twice.

Having looked at the odds available, we could place our qualifying bet on Man City in the 1X2 Full Time market.

Either exchange works for this offer

Betfair and Smarkets are both great options for this offer. If you’ve not used one of them, now is a great time to give them a try.

  • Money back as cash up to £20
  • 0% commission for 60 days

At the time of writing, laying our bet at Betfair gives us the smallest qualifying loss.

Lay £9.78 on Man City @ 1.81 = Potential liability of £7.92


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

OutcomeSpace CasinoBetfairFree BetProfit/Loss
Man City win+ £7.50– £7.92£0.42 loss
Man City don’t win and Man Utd score twice– £10.00+ £9.58+ £4.00£3.58 profit
Any other outcome– £10.00+ £9.58£0.42 loss

So, we’ll make a nice profit of £3.58 if Man City don’t win and Man Utd score exactly twice and we stand to lose £0.42 on any other outcome. Risking £0.42 to make a profit of £3.58, gives us effective odds of 9.52, which I’m sure you’ll agree makes this a profitable offer in the long run.

If eligible, our £5.00 free bet will be credited by 16:00 on Monday 14th December 2020 and will be valid for 30 days. Free bet stakes are not included in any returns.

If you’re unsure on how to convert your £5.00 free bet into £4.00 cash (80%), please see my free bets guide for a walkthrough of how it should be done.

* The match was drawn 0-0, resulting in a loss of £0.42 on this Space Casino offer. *
