It’s Juventus v Barcelona in the Champions League on Wednesday night and you don’t want to miss this EnergyBet price boost available to ALL customers! They’ve enhanced Juventus to beat Barcelona from 7/4 to a whopping 35/1, with the extra winnings paid out in bonus funds. Translated into matched betting terms, this gives us a guaranteed profit of £9.62 and here’s how…
- Only new customers who sign up via the special promotional link or those who already have an account can qualify by placing their bet between 00:01 on Monday 26th October 2020 and 19:59 on Wednesday 28th October 2020.
- Minimum deposit of £10.00, to be eligible for this promotion.
- Deposited funds must be wagered at least once on sport before they can be withdrawn.
- We must stake £1.00 on Juventus to win at the standard odds.
- If Juventus win, the additional winnings gained from the 35/1 enhanced odds will be credited as bonus funds.
- Bonus funds must be wagered 3x at odds of 1.75 (3/4) or greater.
This offer is a little different to regular price boosts, but the strategy is still pretty much the same.
If Juventus win, our bet will be paid out in cash at the standard odds of 7/4 and then topped up to 35/1 in bonus funds.
So, the first thing we need to do is work out the effective odds we’re getting on Juventus, taking into account the wagering requirements on the bonus portion of our returns.
If Juventus win, we’ll receive the following…
+ £33.25 in bonus funds
= £36.00 in total
Our £33.25 would need to be wagered 3 times at odds of 1.75 (3/4) or greater.
Using straightforward matched betting, we should be able to convert our bonus funds into around 85% cash, so £28.26. For more information on wagering bonuses, please see my Bonus Rollover guide.
+ £28.26 (converted from bonus)
= £31.01 total cash
We then just need to divide our total cash by our initial stake to get our effective odds…
£31.01 (total cash) ÷ £1.00 (stake) = 31.01 (effective odds)

We can calculate our lay stake using my Matched Betting Calculator. We just need to enter our effective odds of 31.01 as our ‘Back odds’…
As you can see, the calculator tells us that our lay stake should be £10.84…
Place £1.00 on Juventus @ 31.01 = Potential profit of £30.01
Lay £10.84 on Juventus @ 2.88 = Potential liability of £20.37
Let’s have a look at our profit/loss for the two potential outcomes…
|Outcome||Bookie Cash||Bookie Bonus||Exchange||Profit/Loss|
|Juventus win||+£1.75||+£28.26||-£20.37||£9.64 profit|
|Juventus don’t win||-£1.00||+£10.62||£9.62 profit|
So, regardless of the outcome, we’ll make a guaranteed profit of £9.62 on this EnergyBet Price Boost!
