The Open Championship 2019 gets underway on Thursday and you don’t want to miss this William Hill offer! Simply bet £10.00 on the Tournament Winner market and William Hill will give us a £10.00 free bet every time our player makes an Eagle. Translated into matched betting terms, this gives us a potential profit of £6.41 and here’s how…
- Qualifying bets must be placed between 00:01 on Friday 12th July 2019 and 06:35 (tee-off) on Thursday 18th July 2019.
- We must place a £10.00 Win or £5.00 Each Way bet on the Tournament Winner market for The Open 2019.
- We’ll receive a £10.00 free bet every time our selected player makes an Eagle.
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.
It’s entirely up to you who you place your qualifying bet on. Having looked at the odds available, we could place our qualifying bet on Rory McIlroy.
At the time of writing, laying our bet at Smarkets gives us the smallest qualifying loss.
We can calculate our lay stake using my matched betting calculator…
As you can see, the calculator tells us that our lay stake should be £8.59…
Place £10.00 on Rory McIlroy @ 9.00 = Potential profit of £80.00
Lay £8.59 on Rory McIlroy @ 10.50 = Potential liability of £81.60
Let’s have a look at our potential profit/loss for the possible outcomes…
|Rory McIlroy wins||+£80.00||-£81.60||£1.60 loss|
|Rory McIlroy doesn't win||-£10.00||+£8.41||£1.59 loss|
So, regardless of the outcome, we’ll lose a maximum of £1.60 in qualifying for our potential free bets.
We’ll receive a £10.00 free bet every time our player makes an Eagle. For those of you that aren’t familiar with scoring in golf, an Eagle is made when a player completes a hole in two shots less than par.
Eagles are a rarity in golf, so we shouldn’t expect any player to make more than one throughout the Championship. If Rory McIlroy makes an Eagle, we’ll receive a £10.00 free bet.
Free bets will be credited by 12:00 the following day and will be valid for 4 days. Free bet stakes will not be included in any returns.
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 minimum qualifying loss of £1.59, this gives us a potential profit of £6.41 on this William Hill offer!
