Qualifying Bet and Strategy
For this offer we will be placing a simple qualifying bet. At the time of writing this guide Watford were available at odds of 3.70/3.90.
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 3.70 our calculation should look like this: £25.00 / 2.7 = £9.26. 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 £10.00 stake.
We can enter our details for the qualifying bet on the Matched Betting Calculator as follows: Stake £10.00, Watford back odds 3.70, Watford lay odds 3.90, lay commission 2%.
|If Back Wins|
|If Lay Wins|
As you can see the matched betting calculator tells us to lay £9.54 on Watford.
Our potential profit/loss for this offer breaks down as the following:
|Watford don’t score first and win||+£27.00||-£27.67||-£0.67|
|Watford don’t score first and lose||-£10.00||+£9.35||-£0.65|
|Watford score first and win||+£27.00||-£27.67||-£0.67|
|Watford score first and lose or draw||+£24.26||+9.35||+£33.61|
What happens next?
As you can see by the table above, if Watford 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 £9.26 (the remaining £0.74 of the initial £10.00 did not contribute to the promotion). We’ll also win £9.35 at the exchange meaning a total profit of £33.61!
If any of the other outcomes occur we stand to lose £0.67. We can however use alternative methods to make a profit if Watford score first and win, check out the Golden Goal Guide for more information.
