We can calculate our lay stakes using my matched betting calculator…
As you can see, the calculator tells us that our lay stake should be £9.46…
Place £10.00 on England @ 2.80 = Potential profit of £18.00
Lay £9.46 on England @ 2.98 = Potential liability of £18.73
Let’s have a look at our potential profit/loss for the possible outcomes…
|England win||+£18.00||-£18.73||£0.73 loss|
|England don’t win||-£10.00||+£9.27||£0.73 loss|
So, regardless of the outcome, we’ll lose £0.73 in qualifying for our potential free bet.
We’ll receive a free bet equal to the amount of goals scored in the game, up to a maximum of £5.00. Free bets will be credited by 23:59 on Monday 12th October 2020 and will be valid for 3 days. Free bet stakes will not be included with any returns.
Using straightforward matched betting, we should be able to convert any free bet into 80% cash.
Therefore, if 5 goals are scored in the game, we should be able to get £4.00 cash from our £5.00 free bet. If we take into account our qualifying loss of £0.73, this gives us a potential profit of £3.27 on this Genting Bet offer!
