Losing stakes are refunded as a free bet, so this is effectively a risk-free offer.
We’ll need to select horses with long odds in order to maximise our profits.
The back and lay odds should tighten up on the day of each race. In the meantime though, I’ll use fictional lay odds for Elixir De Nutz in the Supreme Novices’ Hurdle to illustrate how this offer should be done each day. I’ll update the table at the bottom of the post with some actual selections after each race.
At the time of writing, laying our bet at Smarkets is likely to give us the biggest guaranteed profit.
We can work out our lay stake by using the ‘Risk-Free Bet’ setting on my matched betting calculator. We can enter £8.00 as our ‘Cashback’ figure as this is the amount we can expect to extract (80%) from our £10.00 free bet refund, should our horse lose…
As you can see, the calculator tells us that our lay stake should be £8.21…
Place £10.00 on Elixir De Nutz @ 8.50 = Potential profit of £75.00
Lay £8.21 on Elixir De Nutz @ 9.40 = Potential liability of £68.96
Let’s have a look at our potential profit/loss for the possible outcomes…
|Elixir De Nutz wins||+£75.00||-£68.96||£6.04 profit|
|Elixir De Nutz doesn't win||-£10.00||+£8.04||+£8.00||£6.04 profit|
So, regardless of the outcomes and with some good odds, we should make a guaranteed profit of around £6.00 on each race. With 8 races to look forward to across the 4 days, this gives us an overall guaranteed profit of £48.00 on this Betway offer!
If eligible, free bets will be credited within 24 hours of our qualifying bets being settled. Free bets will be valid for 24 hours and free bet stakes are not included in any returns.
If you’re unsure how to extract £8.00 cash (80%) from a £10.00 free bet, check out my Free Bet Strategy page for a walk-through guide on how it should be done.
