Sky Bet – Football Free Bet Offer

It’s another big football weekend, and you don’t want to miss this Sky Bet free bet offer! They’re giving selected customers a £1.00 free ‘BuildABet’ to use on any game this weekend! Translated into matched betting terms, this gives you a potential profit of £5.00 and here’s how…

Key terms

  • Available to selected customers only.
  • The promotional period runs from 15:00 on Wednesday 11th January 2023, until 18:30 on Sunday 15th January 2023.
  • You must click the ‘Opt In’ button onsite during the promotional period to receive your £1.00 free bet.
  • The free bet will be valid on ‘BuildABet‘ only.
  • The free bet stake will not be returned with any winnings.

Free bet

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

You could build a bet that is layable and lock in around £0.60 profit. Please see my ‘Bet Builders‘ guide for a walkthrough on building layable selections.

With the free bet being small, though, I suspect many will be happy to just punt this for a risk-free shot at a decent return. That’s my preferred approach.

It’s entirely up to you what you place your free ‘BuildABet‘ on.

At the time of writing, looking at the odds for Tottenham v Arsenal (Sunday 16:30), you could place it on ‘Tottenham (Full Time Result) / No (Both Teams To Score)‘ at odds of 6.00 (5/1).

Place £1.00 free bet on ‘Tottenham / No’ @ 6.00 = Potential profit of £5.00

Outcomes

Let’s look at your profit/loss for the possible outcomes.

Tottenham win to nil+ £5.00£5.00 profit
Any other outcome– Free bet£0.00

So, if Tottenham win to nil, you’ll make a £5.00 profit on this Sky Bet offer! With any other outcome, you’ve lost your free bet, and there’s no harm done.

* Arsenal beat Tottenham 2-0, resulting in break-even on this Sky Bet offer. *
