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 £8.54.
Place £10.00 on ‘Chola Empire’ @ 3.50 = Potential profit of £25.00
Lay £8.54 on ‘Chola Empire’ @ 4.10 = Potential liability of £26.47
Let’s look at your profit/loss for the possible outcomes.
So, you’ll profit £6.54 if Chola Empire finishes 2nd or 3rd. Any other outcome, and you’ll lose a maximum of £1.47. Risking £1.47 to make a potential profit of £6.54 gives you effective odds of 5.45, which I’m sure you’ll agree, makes this a profitable offer in the long run.
If eligible, your free bet will be credited within 24 hours of your qualifying bet being settled and valid for 7 days. The free bet stake will not be returned with any winnings.
Please see my ‘Free Bets Guide‘ if you’re unsure how to convert your £10.00 free bet into £8.00 cash (80%).
