Outcomes

Let’s have a look at our potential profit/loss for the possible outcomes…

OutcomeBetfredBetfairProfit/Loss
England win+ £9.09– £9.74£0.65 loss
England lose or draw– £10.00+ £9.35£0.65 loss

So, no matter the outcome, we’ll lose £0.65 in qualifying for our £5.00 free bet.

Free bet

Our £5.00 free bet will be credited by 14:00 on Sunday 14th March 2021 and will be valid until 09:00 on Monday 15th March 2021. Although the promotion page suggests using the free bet on Scotland v Ireland, Betfred free bets can usually be used on any sports market.

Using straightforward matched betting, we should be able to convert our free bet into 80% cash, so £4.00. If we take into account our qualifying loss of £0.65, this gives us a guaranteed profit of £3.35 on this Betfred offer!

* England won the match 23-20, resulting in a profit of £3.35 on this Betfred offer. *
