Paddy Power – Leicester v Chelsea Boost

It’s Leicester v Chelsea in the Premier League on Saturday, and you don’t want to miss this Paddy Power price boost! They’ve enhanced Jamie Vardy to have 1 or more shots on target from 1/5 to a rather nice evens. Translated into matched betting terms, this gives us a potential profit of £3.16, and here’s how…

Power Price Boost

The maximum stake for this power price boost is £20.00.

We can calculate our underlay stake using my Matched Betting Calculator. We just need to open up the ‘Advanced’ section and click the ‘Underlay’ tab…

Lay Bet (Betting Exchange)

Lay stake required: £
If back (bookie) bet wins

If lay (exchange) bet wins

Total profit: £

As you can see, the calculator tells us that our lay stake should be £21.06…

Place £20.00 on ‘Jamie Vardy to have 1 or more shots on target (v Chelsea)’ @ 2.00 = Potential profit of £20.00

Lay £21.06 on ‘Vardy To Have Over 0.5 Shots On Target’ @ 1.80 = Potential liability of £16.84


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

OutcomePaddy PowerExchangeProfit/Loss
Vardy has 1+ shots on target+ £20.00– £16.84£3.16 profit
Any other outcome– £20.00+ £20.00£0.00

So, if Vardy fails to hit the target, we’ll break even and there’s no harm done. However, if Vardy has 1 or more shots on target, we’ll make a nice profit of £3.16 on this Paddy Power price boost!

If you would prefer to lock in a smaller profit, you can simply use the ‘Standard‘ tab on the calculator for a guaranteed profit of £1.71.

* Vardy failed to have a shot on target, resulting in break even on this Paddy Power offer. *
