There’s a big evening of horse racing at Chelmsford tonight and you don’t want to miss this Betfred offer! Simply place a bet on 3 or more separate races from Chelmsford and Betfred will give us a free bet to our average stake, up to £10.00. Translated into matched betting terms, this gives us a guaranteed profit of £6.80 and here’s how…

Qualifying Bets:

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

Qualifying bets must be placed at minimum odds of 2.00 (evens) or greater, to be eligible. To qualify for the maximum £10.00 free bet, we must place bets totalling £30.00 across 3 separate races from Chelmsford this evening (Thursday 15th December 2016)…

Racecourse Race Times
Chelmsford 16:40     17:15     17:50     18:25     19:00     19:30     20:00

I like to place my exchange lay bets with Smarkets as they have great liquidity, the site is really easy to use and they only charge 2% commission in comparison to the 5% charged by other betting exchanges.

We can calculate our lay stakes using the matched betting calculator.

So, we will lose approximately £1.20 in qualifying for our £10.00 free bet.

Free Bet:

Our £10.00 free bet will be credited by 11:00 on Friday 16th December 2016 and will be valid until 09:00 on Saturday 17th December 2016.

By using straightforward matched betting, we should be able to extract 80% of our £10.00 free bet as cash, so around £8.00. If we take into consideration our total qualifying loss of £1.20, this gives us a guaranteed profit of £6.80 on this Betfred offer.

    Is anyone gonna do this bet that did the football bet last night, or is that just being greedy? I don’t want to be gubbed!

  2. Bob

    Yeah I smell a gubbin’ a comin’ if you do both

  3. Charlie

    I’ll give it a miss then. I’ve done a mug bet anyway for Chelmsford. That’ll do for today. Quite happy with the profit from yesterday!

        Matt, any reason why you not blogged about the BetMclean 25% back on horse racing losses up to £250

        1. Matt

          I’ve popped it on the Horse Racing Offers page mate. If you get involved with their daily money back offers, it could be worth having a look at how you’re doing towards the end of the promotional period and go from there.

  6. Rick

    I couldn’t log on to do my 3rd bet, seems to have been a widespread issue. Anyone else have a problem?

  7. Gary

    Yep. Couldn’t log into Betfred website. Two nights in a row now.

    1. Rick

      Got it in the end, went on to live chat and explained my situation.
