Cheltenham Festival 2021 Offer – MansionBet

Cheltenham Festival 2021 is here and you don’t want to miss this MansionBet offer! Simply bet between £5.00 and £10.00 on the first race each day and if your horse finishes 2nd, MansionBet will pay your bet out as a winner, up to a maximum of £250.00. Translated into matched betting terms, this gives us a potential profit of £100.00+ and here’s how…

Qualifying bet

If you’d like more information about qualifying bets and how they work, please see my qualifying bets guide.

It’s entirely up to you which horses you go for, but it makes sense to select horses with fairly short odds in the hope of a 2nd place finish (you’ll see why in a moment).

Having looked at the odds available for the Supreme Novices’ Hurdle (13:20 Tuesday), we could place our qualifying bet on Ballyadam at back odds of 7.00 (6/1) and lay odds of 8.80.

We can calculate our lay stake using my Matched Betting Calculator

Place £10.00 on Ballyadam @ 7.00 = Potential profit of £60.00

Lay £7.97 on Ballyadam@ 8.80 = Potential liability of £62.16


Let’s have a look at our potential profit/loss for the possible outcomes…

Ballyadam finishes 1st+ £60.00– £62.16£2.16 loss
Ballyadam finishes 2nd+ £60.00+ £7.81£67.81 profit
Any other outcome– £10.00+ £7.81£2.19 loss

So, we’ll make a nice profit of £67.81 if Ballyadam finishes 2nd and we’ll lose a maximum of £2.19 on any other outcome. Risking £2.19 to make a potential profit of £67.81 gives us effective odds of 31.96, which I’m sure you’ll agree, makes this a profitable offer in the long run.

This offer is available on the first race each day, so four races in total, giving us an overall potential profit of £100.00+ on this MansionBet offer!

If your horse finishes 2nd, your bet will be settled as ‘lost’ and winnings will be credited to your sports cash balance within 24 hours.

I’ll update the following table with a selection at the end of each day…
