There’s a big evening of greyhound racing tonight and you don’t want to miss this Betfred offer! Simply place a bet on 3 or more separate evening races from Belle Vue, Crayford, Nottingham, Romford, Sheffield and/or Sunderland tonight and Betfred will give us a free bet to our average stake, up to £25.00. Translated into matched betting terms, this gives us a guaranteed profit of £17.00 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 1.50 (1/2) or greater, to be eligible. To qualify for the maximum £25.00 free bet, we must place bets totalling £75.00 across 3 separate evening races from the following greyhound meetings taking place tonight (Friday 9th December 2016)…

Racecourse First Race Last Race
Nottingham 18:28 22:22
Crayford 18:33 21:50
Sheffield 18:39 22:30
Belle Vue 19:25 22:25
Sunderland 19:25 22:35
Romford 19:31 22:40

We will need to lay our bets for this offer on the Betfair Exchange.


NOTE: The liquidity for greyhound racing does not improve until approximately 5-10 minutes before the race starts. You should therefore only do this offer if you’re comfortable with that. If you’ve not done a greyhound offer before, you may just want to observe the changing odds or at least use lower stakes until you get the hang of things.


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

Betfred LogoAim to lose no more than £1.00 on each of our 3 qualifying bets

So, we will lose approximately £3.00 in qualifying for our £25.00 free bet.

Free Bet:

Our £25.00 free bet will be credited by 11:00 on Saturday 10th December 2016 and will be valid until 09:00 on Monday 12th December 2016.

By using straightforward matched betting, we should be able to extract 80% of each £25.00 free bet as cash, so around £20.00. If we take into consideration our total qualifying loss of £3.00, this gives us a guaranteed profit of £17.00 on this Betfred offer.

    Managed to do this with £0.90 qualifying loss. Odds seem to go up on Betfred earlier for the later races.

    Didn’t realise with this offer. You have to take up your free bet within less than 24 hours. I logged in saw i had my free bet. And then later logged in again and it has gone. 🙁 A lot of hard work for nothing.

    Just a warning for others.

    Barry, I made the same mistake. Tried contacting live chat/email service to no avail, they wouldn’t give me the free bet as a one time courtesy, unlike many others like Ladbrokes for instance where I forget to use the in-play bet. £9 QL as it was my first time aswell and needed to get all 3 done fast, for nothing.

    Will definitely make sure I use the bet ASAP before I forget, next time.
