Sky Bet Offer – Friday Night Racing Special

There’s more great horse racing action this evening and Sky Bet are giving all customers a £10.00 free bet. Simply place four or more bets of £10.00 or more on tonight’s racing at Wolverhampton between 17:45 and 21:15 at minimum odds of 1.50 (1/2) or above and Sky Bet will give us a £10.00 free bet to use on any horse racing market. Translated into matched betting terms, this gives us a guaranteed profit of £4.80 and here’s how…



Qualifying Bet:

If you’re unfamiliar with qualifying bets, please see my Qualifying Bet Strategy page for a walk-through guide on how they should be done.

We must opt-in on the promotions page to be eligible for this offer.

I like to place my exchange lay bets with Smarkets as they have great liquidity, the site is really easy to use and they only charge 2% commission in comparison to the 5% charged by other betting exchanges. We can calculate our lay stakes using the matched betting calculator.


Aim to lose no more than £0.80 on each of our four qualifying bets


Free Bet:

By using straightforward matched betting, we should be able to extract 80% of our £10.00 free bet as cash, so around £8.00.  If we take into consideration our total qualifying loss of £3.20, this gives us a guaranteed profit of £4.80.

If you’re not sure how to extract 80% of the £10.00 free bet, please see my Free Bet Strategy page for a walk-through guide on how it should be done.

    About to do first bet on horse racing with this offer.

    On sky bet there are 4 different odds per horse. Should I be using the first column of odds labeled as Win / EW?

      That’s the correct column Rich, though it’s the last column if you’re using a laptop.
