It’s Day 1 of the Boodles May Festival 2021 at Chester on Wednesday and it’s time for another Sky Bet money back offer! If our horse finishes 2nd in the 13:45 Chester, Sky Bet will refund our stake as cash, up to a maximum of £10.00. Translated into matched betting terms, this gives us a potential profit of £8.95 and here’s how…
- Applies to our first bet on the 13:45 Chester.
- Applies to bets placed between 11:00 on Monday 3rd May 2021 and 13:45 (race-off) on Wednesday 5th May 2021.
- If fewer than five runners come under starters orders, Sky Bet may withdraw the offer.
- If our horse finishes 2nd, Sky Bet will refund our stake as cash, up to £10.00.
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 horse you go for, but it would make sense to select a horse with fairly short odds in the hope of a 2nd place finish.
At the time of writing, Devious Angel is available at back odds of 3.50 (5/2) and lay odds of 3.85.
Smarkets works best for this offer
For this offer, Smarkets are the best option due to Sky Bet being part of the same group as Betfair.
Laying your bet at Betfair would probably be fine, but if you don’t want to risk it, Smarkets is your safest bet.
- 0% commission for 60 days
We can calculate our lay stake using my Matched Betting Calculator…
As you can see, the calculator tells us that our lay stake should be £9.14…
Place £10.00 on Devious Angel @ 3.50 = Potential profit of £25.00
Lay £9.14 on Devious Angel @ 3.85 = Potential liability of £26.04
Let’s have a look at our potential profit/loss for the possible outcomes…
So, we’ll make a nice profit of £8.95 if Devious Angel finishes 2nd and we’ll lose a maximum of £1.05 on any other outcome. Risking £1.05 to make a potential profit of £8.95 gives us effective odds of 8.52, which I’m sure you’ll agree, makes this a profitable offer in the long run.
If eligible, cash refunds will be credited within 24 hours of the race finishing.
