It’s entirely up to you which horse you go for, but it would make sense to select a horse with pretty long odds hoping it won’t finish 1st, 2nd or 3rd.
At the time of writing, Cathy Come Home is available at back odds of 19.50 and lay odds of 21.00.
You can calculate your lay stake using my Matched Betting Calculator…
As you can see, the calculator tells you that your lay stake should be £8.85…
Place £10.00 on Cathy Come Home @ 19.50 = Potential profit of £175.75
Lay £8.85 on Cathy Come Home @ 21.00 = Potential liability of £177.00
Let’s look at your potential profit/loss for the possible outcomes…
So, you’ll make a profit of £6.67 if Cathy Come Home does not finish 1st, 2nd or 3rd. You stand to lose a maximum of £1.33 on any other outcome. Risking £1.33 to make a potential profit of £6.67 gives you effective odds of 6.02, which I’m sure you’ll agree, makes this a profitable offer in the long run.
If eligible, free bets will be credited within 24 hours and valid on any horse racing market for 7 days.
If you’re unsure how to convert your £10.00 free bet into £8.00 cash (80%), please see my free bets guide for a walkthrough.
