Sky Bet In-Play Offer – Rotherham v Sheff Wed

To celebrate their sponsorship of the Football League, Sky Bet are offering in-play free bets on some of the big televised football league matches. Simply place a single bet of £25.00 or more pre-match on Rotherham United v Sheffield Wednesday and Sky Bet will give us a £10.00 free bet to be used in-play. Translated into matched betting terms, this gives us a guaranteed profit of £6.00 and here’s how…

 

 

Qualifying Bet:

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

We must opt-in on the promotion page to be eligible for this offer. It’s entirely up to you what you place your qualifying bets on, as long as you place them at the minimum odds of 1.50 (1/2) or above.

I like to place my exchange lay bets with Smarkets as they have great liquidity, the site is really easy to use and they only charge 2% commission in comparison to the 5% charged by other betting exchanges. We can calculate our lay stakes using the matched betting calculator.

Aim to lose no more than £1.50 on your qualifying bet

 

Free Bet:

It’s impossible to know what odds will be available until the match has kicked off but by using straightforward matched betting, we should be able to extract 75% out of the £10.00 free bet as cash, so £7.50. If we take into account our qualifying loss of £1.50, this gives us a guaranteed profit of £6.00!

Extracting profit from our free bets can be a little tricky when betting in-play. My advice is to wait until half-time to place your free bet and then lay it at the betting exchange. This is simply because the odds don’t fluctuate as much as when the game is live. There’s nothing worse than placing a free bet on a market and then something happens in the game that changes the odds before you have chance to get your lay bet on! I tend to look at the correct score markets first and then if I can’t find anything suitable I move onto goal scorer markets.

If you’re not sure how to extract 75% of the £10.00 free in-play bet, please see my Free Bet Strategy page for a walk-through guide on how it should be done.

    Can either back and lay and hope it wins for bigger returns or treat it as an arb to lock in about £4 profit

      If the winnings are doubled then surely we can increase our lay stake more?

    Yes mate, what you need to do is find the best match for odds then work out how much free bet you would win we know we can extract 80% of that so add that to your winings minus stake then divide by your stake that will give you the back odds enter them into the calculator

      It was advertised on the app when I logged in, but then I did receive the email so I guess that doesn’t really answer your question
