The top flight action continues today and you don’t want to miss this Totesport price boost. They’ve enhanced Chelsea, Man Utd and Celtic all to win to a tasty 5/2! Translated into matched betting terms, this gives us a risk-free potential profit of £41.86 and here’s how…


Price Boost Bet:

Maximum stakes for this offer may vary for different accounts, but the following example is based on a maximum stake of £100.00.

Place £100.00 on Chelsea, Man Utd & Celtic @ 3.50 = Potential profit of £250.00

Match 1: Rangers v Celtic (Kick-Off: 12:15)

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.

On the first match, we need to cover our original stake of £100.00. If we divide £100.00 by 0.98 (to account for the 2% Smarkets commission), this gives us a lay stake of £102.04…

Lay £102.04 on Celtic @ 1.78 = Potential liability of £79.59

If Celtic win - £79.59 = – £79.59
If Celtic don't win - £100.00 + £100.00 = £0.00

So, if Celtic don’t win, the offer will be over and we’ll have broken even. However, if Celtic do win, we’ll have lost £79.59 so far.

Matches 2 & 3: Chelsea & Man Utd (Kick-Offs: 15:00)

So, if Celtic win, this means on the next matches, we need to cover both the £79.59 loss from the first match plus the original stake of £100.00. If we divide £179.59 by 0.95 (to account for the 5% Betfair commission), this gives us a lay stake of £189.04…


Lay £189.04 on Chelsea/Man Utd @ 1.68 = Potential liability of £128.55

If Chelsea & Man Utd both win + £250.00 – £79.59 – £128.55 = £41.86 profit
If Chelsea or Man Utd don't win - £100.00 – £79.59 + £179.59 = £0.00

So, if any team fails to win along the way, we’ll have broken even and there’s no harm done. However, if Chelsea, Man Utd and Celtic all win, we’ll have made a nice risk-free profit of £41.86!

I’d like to point out that the above workings are based on the lay odds that were available at the time of writing. If the lay odds fluctuate before we are able to place our lay bets, this may result in us making more potential profit, less potential or even a slight loss, so please bear that in mind before deciding whether or not to do this offer.

    can’t even get £20 on this

  2. James

    This is wrong, When laying the Chelsea/Man U double, if one of the team wins and one loses, not only will your accumulator lose but so will your lay bet. BOTH TEAMS need to lose for your double lay bet to win. So you lose everything plus more

  3. jamie

    You are laying the double James. Not both teams to not win. So you only need one of them not to win for the lay bet to come in

    Hi James your lay bet would win if Chelsea didn’t win and man united did.

  5. Dennis

    This was a few weeks ago but i need more explanatin on this. If i do an acca i always makes shure the teams begin there games after each other so i can lay them each and everyone. But you say you lay Chelsea and Man Utd as a double after the first match has won. I dont get this, i mean i know you can lay doubles or more on Betfair, is that what you do here ?

    1. Matt

      Yes that’s correct Dennis, you just select the combination of teams you want to lay from the list and lay as normal.
