Qualifying Bet and Strategy

For this offer we will be placing a simple qualifying bet. At the time of writing this guide Arsenal were available at odds of 2.35/2.48.

To calculate our optimal stake for this offer we need to divide the winnings of £25.00 by our back odds – 1. For the odds of 2.35 our calculation should look like this: £25.00 / 1.35 = £18.52. We should round this figure up or down as to not look like we are solely betting the minimum or maximum for the offer so we shall be using a £20.00 stake.

We can enter our details for the qualifying bet on the Matched Betting Calculator as follows: Stake £20.00, Arsenal back odds 2.35, Arsenal lay odds 2.48, lay commission 2%.

Our potential profit/loss for this offer breaks down as the following:

Outcome William Hill Exchange Profit/Loss
Arsenal don’t score first and win +£27.00 -£28.28 -£1.28
Arsenal don’t score first and lose -£20.00 +£18.37 -£1.27
Arsenal score first and win +£27.00 -£28.28 -£1.28
Arsenal score first and lose or draw +£23.52 +18.73 +£42.25

What happens next?

As you can see by the table above, if Arsenal score first but draw or lose the game our bet will still be paid out as a winner. We’ll receive our £25.00 in winnings plus our original qualifying stake of £18.72 (the remaining £1.28 of the initial £20.00 did not contribute to the promotion).  We’ll also win £18.73 at the exchange meaning a total profit of £42.25!

If any of the other outcomes occur we stand to lose £1.28. We can however use alternative methods to make a profit if Arsenal score first and win, check out the Golden Goal Guide for more information.
