Qualifying Bet and Strategy
For this offer we will be placing a simple qualifying bet. At the time of writing this guide Liverpool were available at odds of 1.60/1.65.
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 1.60 our calculation should look like this: £25.00 / 0.6 = £41.67. 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 £40.00 stake.
We can enter our details for the qualifying bet on the Matched Betting Calculator as follows: Stake £40.00, Liverpool back odds 1.60, Liverpool lay odds 1.65, lay commission 2%.
|If Back Wins|
|If Lay Wins|
As you can see the calculator tells us to lay £39.26 on Liverpool.

|Liverpool don’t score first and lose||-£40.00||+£38.47||-£1.53|
|Liverpool score first and win||+£24.00||-£25.52||-£1.52|
|Liverpool score first and lose or draw||+£24.00||+38.47||+£62.47|
What happens next?
As you can see by the table above, if Liverpool score first but draw or lose the game our bet will still be paid out as a winner. We’ll receive our £24.00 in winnings plus our original qualifying stake of £40.00. We’ll also win £38.47 at the exchange meaning a total profit of £62.47!
If any of the other outcomes occur we stand to lose £1.53. We can however use alternative methods to make a profit if Liverpool score first and win, check out the Golden Goal Guide for more information.
