Premier League 2018/19 Offer – TLCBet

The Premier League 2018/19 season gets underway on Friday and you don’t want to miss this TLCBet offer. Simply bet £20.00 on any Premier League fixture this weekend and TLCBet will give us a £5.00 bonus for every Premier League match that is drawn on the opening weekend! Translated into matched betting terms, this gives us a potential profit of £15.70 and here’s how…

Key Terms:

  • Qualifying bets must be placed between 10:00 on Friday 3rd August 2018 and 20:00 on Friday 10th August 2018.
  • We must bet exactly £20.00 to qualify for any bonuses.
  • Qualifying bets must be placed at odds of 2.00 (evens) or greater.
  • Maximum bonus token of £20.00.

Qualifying Bet:

It’s entirely up to you what you place your qualifying bet on. Having looked at the odds available, we could place our qualifying bet on Man City to beat Arsenal.

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

We can calculate our lay stake using my matched betting calculator…

As you can see, the calculator tells us that our lay stake should be £20.10…

Place £20.00 on Man City @ 2.05 = Potential profit of £21.00

Smarkets logo

Lay £20.10 on Man City @ 2.06 = Potential liability of £21.30

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

Man City win + £21.00 – £21.30 = £0.30 loss
Man City don’t win – £20.00 + £19.69 (£20.10 minus 2% commission) = £0.31 loss

So, regardless of the outcome, we’ll lose a maximum of £0.31 in qualifying for our potential bonus token.

Bonus:

For every Premier League match that is drawn on the opening weekend, we’ll receive a £5.00 bonus, up to a maximum of £20.00, within 48 hours of our qualifying bet being settled. Bonus tokens will be valid for 5 days and bonus stakes are not included in any returns, so we can treat them exactly the same as a stake not returned free bet.

If four or more games are drawn, we’ll receive a £20.00 bonus token.

By using straightforward matched betting, we should be able to extract 80% cash from our £20.00 bonus, so £16.00. If we take our minimum qualifying loss of £0.30 into account, we stand to make a potential profit of £15.70 on this TLCBet offer!

* Man City beat Arsenal 2-0 and there were two draws on the opening weekend, resulting in a profit of £7.70 on this TLCBet offer. *
