Free bet

It’s entirely up to you how you play this offer.

You could take a speculative approach and not lay your Bet Builder. If your free bet loses, you simply break even, and there’s no harm done.

Your other option is to convert your free bet into cash by laying it at a betting exchange. Please see my Bet Builders guide for more information about them and possible selections.

At the time of writing, you could place your free bet on ‘The Draw (Match Odds) / Yes (Both teams to Score?) / Over 1.5 Goals / Under 2.5 Goals‘ at back odds of 13.21. The lay odds are 19.00.

You can calculate your lay stake using the ‘Free Bet‘ setting on my Matched Betting Calculator.
