Free bet

It’s entirely up to you how you play this offer.

You could take a speculative approach and not lay your Bet Builder. If your free bet loses, you simply break even, and there’s no harm done.

Your other option is to convert your free bet into cash by laying it at a betting exchange. Please see my ‘Bet Builders‘ guide for more information about them and possible selections.

At the time of writing, ‘Crystal Palace (Result) / Over 2.5 (Total Goals)‘ is available to back at odds of 7.00.

You can lay ‘Crystal Palace/Over 2.5 Goals‘ in the ‘Match Odds and Over/Under 2.5 Goals‘ market at odds of 8.80.

Either exchange works for this offer

Betfair and Smarkets are both great options for this offer. If you’ve not used one of them, now is a great time to give them a try.

  • Money back as cash up to £20
  • 0% commission for 60 days

You can calculate your lay stake using the ‘Free Bet‘ setting on my Matched Betting Calculator.
