Qualifying bet

  1. There are no minimum odds required for your qualifying bet. Check the back odds at Sky Bet and the lay odds at Betfair to find a suitable selection.
  2. Use the ‘Qualifying Bet‘ setting on the Matched Betting Calculator to calculate your lay stake.
  3. Although the minimum stake required is just 5p, you should stake £5 to appear like a regular customer. Place your £5 qualifying back bet at Sky Bet (within 30 days of registering).
  4. Place your lay bet against the same selection at Betfair.

Free bets

  1. You’ll receive 3 x £10 free bets.
  2. Check the back odds at Sky Bet and the lay odds at Betfair to find a suitable selection.

As a rough guide, limit your qualifying loss to around £0.50 and aim for £24 cash (80%) from your £30 in free bets. Based on those figures, you should make a £23.50 profit on this Sky Bet offer.
