Lay £9.46 on Joe Perry @ 2.24 = Potential liability of £11.73


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

Joe Perry wins+ £11.00– £11.73£0.73 loss
Joe Perry loses– £10.00+ £9.27£0.73 loss

So, no matter the outcome, we’ll lose £0.73 in qualifying for our £5.00 free bet.
