Place £10.00 on Italy @ 1.50 = Potential profit of £5.00

Betfair logo

Lay £9.74 on Italy @ 1.56 = Potential liability of £5.45


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

Italy win+ £5.00– £5.45£0.45 loss
Italy lose or draw– £10.00+ £9.54£0.46 loss

So, no matter the outcome, we’ll lose a maximum of £0.46 in qualifying for our potential free bet.

Free bet

We’ll receive a free bet equal to the amount of goals scored in the game, up to a maximum of £5.00. Free bets will be credited by 23:59 on Saturday 12th June 2021 and will be valid for 3 days. Free bet stakes will not be included with any returns.

Using straightforward matched betting, we should be able to convert any free bet into 80% cash.

Therefore, if 5 goals are scored in the game, we should be able to get £4.00 cash from our £5.00 free bet. If we take into account our minimum qualifying loss of £0.45, this gives us a potential profit of £3.55 on this GentingBet offer!

* Italy won the match 3-0, resulting in a profit of £1.95 on this GentingBet offer. *
