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 £9.24…
Place £10.00 on ‘Both Teams To Score – Yes’ @ 1.571 = Potential profit of £5.71
Lay £9.24 on ‘Both teams to Score – Yes’ @ 1.72 = Potential liability of £6.65
Let’s have a look at our potential profit/loss for the possible outcomes…
|Both teams score – Yes||+£5.71||-£6.65||£0.94 loss|
|Both teams score – No||-£10.00||+£9.05||£0.95 loss|
By using straightforward matched betting, we should be able to extract 80% cash from our £5.00 free bet, so £4.00. If we take into account our maximum qualifying loss of £0.95, this gives us a guaranteed profit of £3.05 on this Sky Bet offer!
