Actual Profit

It’s Novak Djokovic v Daniil Medvedev in the Australian Open 2021 Men’s Final on Sunday morning and you don’t want to miss this Betway early payout offer! Simply bet up to £20.00 on Djokovic or Medvedev to win the match and if our selected player wins the first set, Betway will pay us out as a winner, in cash, no matter the final result! Translated into matched betting terms, this gives us a potential profit of £35.50 and here’s how…

Key terms

  • Maximum qualifying stake of £20.00.
  • Applies to single bets placed on Djokovic or Medvedev in the Match Winner market.
  • Applies to bets placed before the match starts, which is due to be at 08:30 on Sunday 21st February 2021.
  • If our selected player wins the first set, Betway will pay our bet out in cash, within 24 hours.

NOTE: Be aware that Betway have different retirement rules to Betfair and Smarkets, which could leave you exposed to a big loss in the event of a retirement. The safest way of doing this offer is dutching your qualifying bet at another bookmaker with the same retirement rules, as explained in this guide.

Qualifying bet

If you’re unfamiliar with early payout offers, please see my Bet365 Early Payout (2UP) guide for a walkthrough of how they should be done.

Having looked at the odds available, we could place our qualifying bet on Novak Djokovic at odds of 1.85 (17/20). If Djokovic wins the first set, Betway will pay our bet out as a winner.

At the time of writing, Bet365 have the best odds for Daniil Medvedev at 2.00 (evens).

We can calculate our stake using the ‘2-Way Dutch‘ setting on my Early Payout Calculator

No early payout

Let’s have a look at our potential profit/loss if Djokovic doesn’t win the first set…

OutcomeBetwayBet365Profit/Loss
Djokovic wins+ £17.00– £18.50£1.50 loss
Djokovic loses– £20.00+ £18.50£1.50 loss

So, worst case scenario, we’ll lose £1.50 in qualifying for this early payout offer.

Early payout!

If Djokovic wins the first set, we need to select the early payout toggle (in the grey section) to tell the calculator that ‘The bookmaker has paid out early‘…

As you can see, our potential profit/loss is as follows, now that Betway have paid out early…

OutcomeBetwayBet365Profit/Loss
Djokovic wins+ £17.00– £18.50£1.50 loss
Djokovic loses+ £17.00+ £18.50£35.50 profit

So, if we let things run and Djokovic goes on to win, we’ll still make a loss of £1.50, but if Djokovic loses, we’ll make a profit of £35.50!

Lock in profit

If we decide to lock in a profit, we’ll need to enter the back odds for Djokovic to win at a third bookmaker. Let’s say, for example, Djokovic is odds of 1.30 at BetVictor…

Place £28.46 on Novak Djokovic @ 1.30 = Potential profit of £8.54

Now let’s have a look at our overall potential profit for the possible outcomes…

OutcomeBetwayBet365BetVictorProfit/Loss
Djokovic wins+ £17.00– £18.50+ £8.54£7.04 profit
Djokovic loses+ £17.00+ £18.50– £28.46£7.04 profit
