Place £20.00 on Man Utd to win by 2 or more goals @ 2.00 = Potential profit of £20.00

betfair

Lay £23.67 on ‘Man Utd -1’ @ 1.74 = Potential liability of £17.51

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

Man Utd win by 2 or more goals + £20.00 – £17.51 = £2.49 profit
Man Utd don't win by 2 or more goals - £20.00 + £22.49 (£23.67 minus 5% commission) = £2.49 profit

So, regardless of the result of the match, we’ll make a guaranteed profit of £2.49 on this William Hill offer.

      We need to lay 'Man Utd -1' which can be found under 'Reading +1'. The links in the post will take you straight to the correct market.

    On the Asian handicap market on BF Man Utd -1 is 1.36, and -1.5 is 1.79.What is the difference please?

    Hi Matt,

    Thanks for the guidance on this. Have just laid 24.24 at 1.7 on betfair so that should net me £3.03 in profit :)

    Any chance you could explain what "Man Utd-1" actually means please?
    How does it translate into Man Utd not winning by two goals or more?

    Thanks!

      Kingsley,

      Think of Man Utd -1 means the score starts as Man Utd 0-1 Reading and you are backing Man Utd to win. So if Man Utd win 2-0 (actual score) it will mean they will have won with a -1 handicap.

        Thanks Alex,

        So basically the bet means that Man Utd can only be a winner if their lead is 2+ goals, and that's how it works as a lay against the William Hill bet.

        Thanks for explaining!

    -1.5 on the Asian handicap and -1 on the Reading +1 market are both currently 1.71 to lay.

    Matt, just thought I'd jump in. I believe the market you need on betfair is Man utd -1.5

    If you take man utd -1 and the will hill boost and it ends up being 1-0 man utd, both bets lose

      No as we've bet on a standard handicap (not asian) where we cover every situation that isn't man utd winning by 2 or more. I.e. Winning by 1 goal is covered. The market can be found in 'Reading +1'

    I don't see why you lay in Betfair when you can find better odds in Asian Handicap in another bookmakers. Reading +1.5, the opposite result, is in 2.3 in Marathon

    My first time looking at this type of bet. Have been looking at the william hill page but I am struggling to see which option I bet on as there are so many listed on the page
