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

OutcomeBoyleSportsBetfairFree BetProfit/Loss
Coventry win+ £37.50– £38.51£1.01 loss
Coventry lose– £10.00+ £8.98+ £8.00£6.98 profit
Coventry draw– £10.00+ £8.98£1.02 loss

So, we’ll make a nice profit of £6.98 if Norwich beat Coventry and we stand to lose a maximum of £1.02 on any other outcome. Risking £1.02 to make a profit of £6.98 gives us effective odds of 7.84. So, given that Norwich are odds of just 1.80 (4/5) to win the match, this is a profitable offer in the long run.

If you’re unsure how to convert your £10.00 free bet into £8.00 cash (80%), please see my free bets guide for a walkthrough of how it should be done.

* The match was drawn 1-1, resulting in a loss of £1.02 on this BoyleSports offer. *
