There’s a big Wednesday night of Premier League and Championship football to look forward to and you don’t want to miss this Sky Bet Soccer Special Price Boost! They’ve enhanced Arsenal and Chelsea to win, plus our choice of Nottingham Forest to win, lose or draw. Translated into matched betting terms, this gives us a risk-free potential profit of £8.04 and here’s how…

Soccer Special Price Boost:

The maximum stake will vary per customer, but it’s likely to be £10.00.

It’s entirely up to you which combination you go for. Having looked at the odds available, we could place our qualifying bet on Arsenal, Chelsea & Nottingham Forest all to win.

At the time of writing, laying our bet with Smarkets gives us the biggest risk-free potential profit.

If you’re not yet signed up, Smarkets are currently offering a £10.00 welcome bonus for new customers.

We can find the acca market via the following link trail…

Smarkets > Football > Accumulators > Wednesday

We can calculate our underlay stake using my matched betting calculator. We just need to open up the ‘Advanced’ section and click the ‘UNDERLAY’ tab…

Select bet type

Back Bet (Bookie)


Lay Bet (Betting Exchange)

Min £
Max £
Lay stake required: £
If back (bookie) bet wins
= £
If lay (exchange) bet wins
= £

Total profit: £

As you can see, the calculator tells us that our lay stake should be £10.21…

Place £10.00 on Arsenal, Chelsea & Nottingham Forest all to win @ 6.50 = Potential profit of £55.00

Smarkets logo

Lay £10.21 on ‘Nottingham Forest, Arsenal & Chelsea all to win on Wednesday, July 1st – Yes’ @ 5.60 = Potential liability of £46.96


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

Treble wins+£55.00-£46.96£8.04 profit
Treble doesn't win-£10.00+£10.00£0.00

So, if our treble doesn’t win, we’ll break even and there’s no harm done. However, if our treble does win, we’ll make a nice risk-free profit of £8.04 on this Sky Bet Soccer Special Price Boost!

Note: If you would prefer to lock in a smaller profit, you can simply use the ‘STANDARD‘ tab on the calculator for a guaranteed profit of £1.41.

* Chelsea were the only team not to win their respective fixture, resulting in break even on this Sky Bet price boost. *

    Hi Matt ☺️

    I placed this through the Betfair Exchange when the Lay was at 5.3, but now it’s gone even lower to 4.8, is there any way to get the better price on Betfair as there is no trade-out feature as with your recommendation of Smarkets, which I also use.

    Thanks 🙂

      Hi Jen,

      The lay odds have shortened to 4.80, which means the back odds will have shortened too. If you were to place a back bet to effectively cash your exchange bet out, you would have made a loss so there’s little point in doing so.

      It’s just luck of the draw. Sometimes the lay odds will shorten after you place your lay bet and other times they will get longer. It all evens itself out over time.

      Hope that helps.
