BetVictor Offer – Thanksgiving NFL

It’s Thanksgiving across the pond and this BetVictor offer is not to be missed! Bet a minimum of £10.00 on both NFL games today and BetVictor will give us a £10.00 bonus bet for the 3rd game tomorrow! Translated into matched betting terms, this gives us a profit of £6.80 and here’s how…

BetVictor Offer NFL Thanksgiving

Qualifying Bets:

To be eligible for the bonus bet, we need to opt-in to the offer via the bonus and promotions page within our account.

The two qualifying matches are as follows…

Fixture Kick-Off Date
Philadelphia Eagles v Detroit Lions 17:30 Thursday 26th November 2015
Carolina Panthers v Dallas Cowboys 21:30 Thursday 26th November 2015

We need to find qualifying bets that have tight back and lay odds, so it’s probably a good idea to stick to the Money Line (Winner) market.

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 £0.60 on each of our qualifying bets

So we will lose £1.20 in qualifying for our £10.00 bonus bet.



Our £10.00 bonus bet will be credited shortly after our qualifying bets have been settled and it can only be used to bet on the Chicago Bears v Green Bay Packers match which takes place at 01:30 on Friday 27th November 2015.

By using straightforward matched betting, we should be able to extract 80% of it as cash, so £8.00.

We will only be eligible to withdraw winnings accrued through the use of our bonus funds once we have placed real cash sports bets with a total stake of at least 4 times the value of our initial bonus bet and these bets have fully settled. So, if we bet our £10.00 bonus and it wins, we will need to place further settled bet(s) with a cumulative stake of £40.00 before we will be permitted to make a withdrawal of any winnings accrued through the use of our bonus funds. It’s more than likely that our bonus bet will lose, but if it wins, it will probably cost us a quid or so to rollover.

Assuming our bonus bet loses, and taking into account our qualifying loss of £1.20, this gives us a profit of £6.80 on this BetVictor offer!

    Cheers Matt.

    Sky Bet – 2:45 at Newbury – payout as a winner (promo cash) if your horse comes 2nd. Presume we treat this exactly the same as Paddy’s MBS offer and look for a close odds match on a horse that is likely to come second?

    1. Mike j

      Thanks Tony. This will secure our sky bet fulfillment as well

      1. tony

        No worries Mike. That race ended up a bit of a farce for me – I had backed and laid the horse that was withdrawn as a non-runner minutes before the off, so I didn’t end up making anything from it. Hope others did though

    Pokerstars are doing the same bet 3 NFL pre match get free £10 bet for any of Sunday’s games. tight back and lay odds so pretty easy!

  3. jamie

    roughly how long does an american football match last, I`m wondering when the qualifiers would be settled top get the free bet bearing in mind the third match is the middle of the night?

    1. Dan

      They can last around 3 hours a game sometimes Jamie.

      BetBright also have an offer. Bet 10 on a double on the 2 early games and if both lose get a free 10 bet for Sunday’s games. Back/Lay can be done to get a free 10 bet.

    Thought you guys should know, should be some big price boosts tomorrow morning on paddy starting at 10 am. Price boosts are limited so get on it quick if your available and it should be easy back/lay for profit

    1. tony

      Yeah, “Green Friday” as they are calling it. Looking at their promo email, a lot of last years offers were “X, Y and Z all to win, was 5/1 now 10/1” … which is obviously a nice boost, but how do you go about laying such bets to lock in profit? Unless I am looking in the wrong places, you cannot lay multiples on either Smarkets or Betfair?

      1. Mike j

        You are correct Tony. I only took at glance at that screenshot and assumed the price boosts where the same style as the boosts they had on a week or so ago. Still I would say it’s worth checking out. Just wanted to let everyone know in advance because I usually miss these ”limited time offers”. Also had an email of betfred stating they will be having offers as well

        1. ronan

          Yeah, annoying that all the good deals are multiples. I think the best thing to do is just pick five of the enhanced offers, and put a quid on each and hope they win.

        2. Dan

          That’s one to do it but you could also put money on an offer that has 3 selections in the bet, for example, and lay each game off separately.

          I’ve seen Matt do this with a Betfred double before.

          Obviously though the games would have to be on at different times to make this work and there’s a bit of effort / maths in it

        3. Mike j

          Sounds interesting that Dan. Don’t suppose you still have the formulas still do you or if you can explain in more depth?

        4. tony

          Thanks for that Matt, that has really helped me understand sequential laying 🙂 It will be really useful later tonight when I try to lay off the first PaddyPower special, which was City & Utd to win at 6.0

          PS – perhaps you could put up a “blank” blog post for us to all leave black friday offers on?

        5. Matt

          That wouldn’t have been a bad idea Tony. I’m going to hopefully launch the forum this weekend so it shouldn’t be a problem in future.

        6. tony

          It was no problem mate, I just like to share the deals when I come across them – and there were PLENTY of them today!

          Forum sounds great, nice wee community on here now that should keep it ticking over nicely 🙂

  5. Irena

    Hi Guys,
    A bit new to this – do we treat the £10 bonus bet as stake returned or as a free bet?
    Sorry if this is obvious.

    1. tony

      As a stake not returned free bet, I believe

  6. Irena

    Many thanks – I think calling it bonus bet rather than Free Bet was what confused me.
