Place £10.00 on ‘Both Teams to Score – Yes’ @ 2.25 = Potential profit of £12.50

Lay £9.78 on ‘Both teams to Score? – Yes’ @ 2.32 = Potential liability of £12.90

Outcomes

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

Outcome NetBet Betfair Profit/Loss
Both teams score – Yes + £12.50 – £12.90 £0.40 loss
Both teams score – No – £10.00 + £9.58 £0.42 loss

So, no matter the outcome, we’ll lose a maximum of £0.42 in qualifying for our potential free bets.

Free bets

We’ll receive a £2.00 free bet for every goal scored in the match, up to a maximum of five free bets. Free bets will be credited within 24 hours of our qualifying bet being settled and will be valid for 7 days on any sport.

Using straightforward matched betting, we should be able to convert any free bet into 80% cash.

Therefore, if 5 goals are scored in the match, we should be able to get £8.00 cash from our 5 x £2.00 free bets. If we take into account our minimum qualifying loss of £0.40, this gives us a potential profit of £7.60 on this NetBet offer!
