Qualifying bet

At the time of writing, Andy Dufresne is available at back odds of 7.50 (13/2) and lay odds of 8.80.

Outcomes

Let’s look at your potential profit/loss for the possible outcomes…

OutcomeHollywoodbetsBetfairFree BetProfit/Loss
Andy Dufresne wins+ £65.00– £66.61£1.61 loss
Andy Dufresne
finishes 2nd or 3rd
– £10.00+ £8.36+ £8.00£6.36 profit
Any other outcome– £10.00+ £8.36£1.64 loss

So, you’ll make a nice profit of £6.36 if Andy Dufresne finishes 2nd or 3rd, or you’ll lose a maximum of £1.64 on any other outcome. Risking £1.64 to make a potential profit of £6.36 gives you effective odds of 4.88, which I’m sure you’ll agree, makes this a profitable offer in the long run.

If eligible, your free bet will be credited by 12:00 the day after the race. Free bets will be valid on horse racing for 24 hours, and the free bet stake will not be returned with any winnings.

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 of how it should be done.

Don’t miss out on one of the most profitable weeks of the matched betting calendar! For a comprehensive list of available bookmaker offers, please see my Cheltenham Festival 2022 Offers page.
