- We must opt in on the promotion page, to be eligible.
- Minimum stake of £5.00.
- Applies to bets placed on the Hotshots market.
- Applies to bets placed between 12:00 on Friday 6th November 2020 and 14:00 on Thursday 12th November 2020.

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 £4.17…
Place £5.00 on Dustin Johnson @ 10.00 = Potential profit of £45.00
Lay £4.17 on Dustin Johnson @ 12.00 = Potential liability of £45.87
Let’s have a look at our potential profit/loss for the possible outcomes…
|Dustin Johnson wins||+ £45.00||– £45.87||£0.87 loss|
|Dustin Johnson doesn’t win||– £5.00||+ £4.08||£0.92 loss|
So, no matter who wins, we’ll lose a maximum of £0.92 in qualifying for our potential free bets.
We’ll receive a £1.00 free bet for every birdie or better Dustin Johnson records during the first round of the tournament. Free bets will be credited by 19:00 after the conclusion of the first round and will not be subject to an expiry.
If Dustin Johnson records 5 birdies or better in the first round, we’ll receive £5.00 in free bets. Using straightforward matched betting, we should be able to convert our free bets into 80% cash, so £4.00. If we take into account our minimum qualifying loss of £0.87, this gives us a potential profit of £3.13 on this Sky Bet offer!
* Dustin Johnson recorded 6 birdies or better in the first round and went on to win the tournament, resulting in a profit of £3.93 on this Sky Bet offer. *
