It’s PSG v Bayern Munich in the Champions League Final on Sunday night and you don’t want to miss this Bet365 free bet offer! Place a pre-match single bet on PSG v Bayern Munich and Bet365 will give us a free bet equal to our largest pre-match bet, up to £50.00, to use in play. Translated into matched betting terms, this gives us a guaranteed profit of £34.58 and here’s how…

Key Terms:

  • This offer is invite only, available to customers who have received the promotional email, web message, text message, pop-up or mobile notification.
  • We must place our qualifying bet on PSG v Bayern Munich before 20:00 (kick-off) on Sunday 23rd August 2020.
  • We’ll receive a free bet equal to our largest pre-match stake, up to a maximum of £50.00.
  • The free bet will only become available once the match has kicked off.

Qualifying Bet:

If you’re unfamiliar with qualifying bets, please see my Qualifying Bet Strategy page for a walk-through guide on how it should be done.

We should place our qualifying bet on either team to win as that will also qualify us for Bet365’s 2 Goals Ahead Early Payout Offer, where they’ll pay us out if our selected team goes two goals ahead, regardless of the final result. Early payout offers are well worth a look if you haven’t already!

Having looked at the odds available, we could place our qualifying bet on PSG in the Full Time Result market.

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

Betfair are currently offering new customers 0% commission up to £500 for the first 30 days.

We can calculate our lay stake using the ‘Qualifying Bet‘ setting on my matched betting calculator…

As you can see, the calculator tells us that our lay stake should be £48.05…

Place £50.00 on PSG @ 3.20 = Potential profit of £110.00

Betfair logo

Lay £48.05 on PSG @ 3.35 = Potential liability of £112.91

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

Outcome Bookie Exchange Profit/Loss
PSG win +£110.00 -£112.91 £2.91 loss
PSG don't win -£50.00 +£47.08 £2.92 loss

So, regardless of the outcome, we’ll lose a maximum of £2.92 in qualifying for our £50.00 free bet.

Free Bet:

Our £50.00 free bet will only become available once the match starts and must be used in play. Free bet stakes are not included in any returns.

If you’re unsure how to extract cash from a free bet, please see my Free Bet Strategy page for a walk-through guide on how it should be done.

It’s impossible to know what odds will be available until the match has kicked off, but we should be aiming to extract around £37.50 cash (75%) from our £50.00 free bet.

I’ll use fictional odds for 2-1 PSG in the following example to give you an idea of how things should pan out.

Place £50.00 on 2-1 PSG @ 8.50 = Potential profit of £375.00

Lay £38.34 on 2-1 PSG @ 9.80 = Potential liability of £337.39

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

Outcome Bookie Exchange Profit/Loss
2-1 PSG +£375.00 -£337.39 £37.61 profit
Not 2-1 PSG -£50.00 free bet +£37.57 £37.57 profit

So, with some decent odds, we’ll extract around £37.50 cash from our £50.00 free bet.

If we take into account our maximum qualifying loss of £2.92, this gives us a guaranteed profit of £34.58 on this Bet365 offer!

* Bayern Munich won the match 1-0, resulting in a profit of £34.58 on this Bet365 offer. *

        It’s impossible to say for sure, it’s just trial and error really. You could try placing a few more bets on the football or increasing your stakes, but there are no guarantees it will get you an invite.

      Hi Joe. I had a look at this one and decided not to post it as I’m not sure there’s a profit in it.

      If your £30.00 bet wins, they’ll give you £50.00 cash, so you can basically add 1.67 on to your back odds to get your effective back odds.

      When I looked on Friday, I couldn’t see any Correct Score odds that returned a profit.

      Hope that helps.

    Hi guys. I didn’t know either but I tried placing a small (matched) bet every Saturday for a few weeks and got this offer invite (well, £25 instead of £50) so perhaps about looking like a regular punter?

    The correct way to go about getting an invite is to reduce your stakes

    It’s to incentivise you to place higher stakes than you currently are… if you’re sticking £25-£50 on horses regularly there’s no profit in inviting you to take part in this offer!

    I went ages without an invite, reduced my regular stakes to just £5 and boom… straight back in the game with the £50 invite

    Hope this helps

      Not for me,

      I was getting nothing then started doing heaps of 4/1 at £50 a go and got the offer back.
