Qualifying Bet and Strategy

For this offer we will be placing a simple qualifying bet. At the time of writing this guide Chelsea were available at odds of 3.50/3.75.

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 3.5 our calculation should look like this: £25.00 / 2.5 = £10.00. Luckily for us this gives us the perfect staking amount as it’s always best to keep stake amounts to rounded figures.

We can enter our details for the qualifying bet on the Matched Betting Calculator as follows: Stake £10.00, Chelsea back odds 3.50, Chelsea lay odds 3.75, lay commission 2%.
