Ryder Cup 2018 Offer – Bruce Betting

The Ryder Cup 2018 takes place this weekend and you don’t want to miss this Bruce Betting ‘Bet £20, Get £10’ offer! Place a £20.00+ single bet on the Top Combined Points Scorer and Bruce Betting will give us a £10.00 free bet to use on any Ryder Cup market. Translated into matched betting terms, this gives us a guaranteed profit of £7.61 and here’s how…

Key Terms:

  • Minimum stake of £20.00 required.
  • We must place our bet on the Top Combined Points Scorer market.
  • Qualifying bets must be placed between 09:00 on Monday 24th September 2018 and 07:10 (tee-off) on Friday 28th September 2018.

Qualifying Bet:

If you’re unfamiliar with qualifying bets, please see my Qualifying Bet Strategy page for a walk-through guide on how it should be done.

Having looked at the odds available, we could place our qualifying bet on Jon Rahm.

At the time of writing, laying our bet at Smarkets gives us the smallest qualifying loss.

We can calculate our lay stakes using my matched betting calculator…

As you can see, the calculator tells us that our lay stake should be £20.02…

Place £20.00 on Jon Rahm @ 17.00 = Potential profit of £320.00

Smarkets logo

Lay £20.02 on Jon Rahm @ 17.00 = Potential liability of £320.32

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

Jon Rahm top scores + £320.00 – £320.32 = £0.32 loss
Jon Rahm doesn’t top score – £20.00 + £19.61 (£20.02 minus 2% commission) = £0.39 loss

So, regardless of the outcome, we’ll lose a maximum of £0.39 in qualifying for our £10.00 free bet.

Free Bet:

Our £10.00 free bet will be credited by 09:00 on Saturday 29th September 2018 and can be used on any Ryder Cup 2018 market. Free bets must be placed at odds between 2.00 (evens) and 11.00 (10/1).

By using straightforward matched betting, we should be able to extract 80% cash from our £10.00 free bet, so £8.00. If we take into account our maximum qualifying loss of £0.39, this gives us a guaranteed profit of £7.61 on this Bruce Betting offer!

* Francesco Molinari finished top combined points scorer with 5 points, resulting in a profit of £7.61 on this Bruce Betting offer. *
