We’ll need to place our bet at long odds in order to maximise our profit.
At the time of writing, the lay odds aren’t quite tight enough, so I’ll use fictional lay odds for Slovakia 2-1 in the Correct Score market in the following example and I’ll update the bottom of the post with an actual selection after the match.
At the time of writing, laying our bet at Betfair is likely to give us the biggest guaranteed profit.

We can work out our lay stake by using the ‘Risk-Free Bet’ setting on my Matched Betting Calculator. We can enter £8.00 as our ‘Cashback’ figure as this is the amount we can expect to convert our £10.00 free bet into, should our bet lose…
As you can see, the calculator tells us that our lay stake should be £7.68…
Place £10.00 on ‘Slovakia 2-1’ @ 10.00 = Potential profit of £90.00
Lay £7.68 on ‘2-1 (Slovakia)’ @ 12.00 = Potential liability of £84.48
Let’s have a look at our potential profit/loss for the possible outcomes…
|Slovakia win 2-1||+£90.00||-£84.48||£5.52 profit|
|Slovakia don't win 2-1||-£10.00||+£7.52||+£8.00||£5.52 profit|
So, no matter how the match finishes, we’ll make a guaranteed profit of £5.52 on this BoyleSports offer!
If eligible, our free bet will be credited within 24 hours and will be valid for 7 days.
If you’re unsure how to convert your £10.00 free bet into £8.00 cash (80%), please see my Free Bets Guide for a walk-through of how it should be done.
