Lay £7.02 on ‘Rangers’ (Match Odds) @ 1.80 = Potential liability of £5.61


Let’s have a look at our profit/loss for the two potential outcomes…

Outcome The Pools Betfair Profit/Loss
Rangers win + £7.50 – £5.61 £1.89 profit
Rangers lose or draw – £5.00 + £6.87 £1.87 profit

So, no matter the outcome, we’ll make a minimum profit of £1.87 in qualifying for our two ‘Bet £20, Get £5’ offers.

Aim to lose no more than £1.00 on each of our qualifying bets

So, we’ll lose a total of around £2.00 in qualifying for our £10.00 in free bets.

Using straightforward matched betting, we should convert our free bets into 80% cash, so £8.00. Considering our total expected qualifying loss of £2.00 and our price boost minimum profit of £1.87, this provides us with an overall profit of £7.87 on this The Pools offer!
