William Hill – Man City v Real Madrid Offer

It’s Man City v Real Madrid in the Champions League Semi-Finals on Tuesday night, and William Hill are getting in on the action! Place a £1.00+ Build #YourOdds bet on Man City v Real Madrid, and William Hill will match your stake as a free bet up to £5.00. Translated into matched betting terms, this gives you a profit of £3.58 and here’s how…

Qualifying bet

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

You could take a speculative approach and not lay your Build #YourOdds bet. If your bet loses, you’ll be able to convert your £5.00 free bet into 80% cash, so £4.00. That means the most you can lose on this offer is £1.00 and you could make a nice profit.

My preferred approach for this offer is to build a bet that is layable and lock in a profit. Please see my Bet Builders guide for a walkthrough on building layable selections.

At the time of writing, you could place your qualifying bet on ‘Man City (Result) / No (Both Teams to Score)‘ at back odds of 2.60 (8/5).

You can lay ‘Yes‘ in the ‘Man City Win to Nil‘ market at odds of 2.80.
