Hold up lads, Ray’s back with another cracking Champions League offer for everyone over at BET365

Don’t mind if I do Raymondo…….look,

Man City v Barcelona In-Play Bet Offer

Man City take on Barcelona in the Champions League on Tuesday 18th February – and we’ve got a fantastic In-Play bet offer to add to the excitement.

Place a pre-match bet on the Man City v Barcelona game and we will give you a risk free In-Play bet to the same stake on the big match.

To qualify for your risk free In-Play bet, simply place a bet before kick-off, then once the game starts place another bet on any In-Play market. If your FIRST In-Play bet loses we will refund this stake, up to the same value as your largest pre-match bet (max £50*).

As always, there’ll be plenty to choose from with over 70 In-Play markets available throughout the game including Next Goal, Match Goals, Total Corners, Half-Time Result, Full-Time Result and much more.

With an extensive range of pre-match and In-Play markets and a fantastic In-Play bet offer, bet365 is the number one place for all your Soccer betting.

All pretty straight forward.

Just back / lay a selection on the game for upto £50 (pre match) for the lowest possible loss in the normal way.

Then you will get a free inplay bet upto the same value of your first bet (max £50) on the big game too, which, of course, you can play however you like.

A straight punt or maybe as some insurance if you are trading the game.

Remember if you win happy days, if not then the inplay bet will be refunded after the game, so there is no risk!

Or you can lock in some risk free profit if you like. The key is to underlay the bet on the exchange so that if the bet does win you lose less at the exchange to have locked in a profit. Or if the bet loses you will win something from the lay bet plus get the refund too to take you into profit.

And if you are nervous of a goal whilst you are mid-bet, then don’t worry you can always place it at halftime. This will give you plenty of time to sort out your calculations!

Talking of which, just calculate the lay stake in the same way you would a stake not returned free bet offer using the Bet72 Risk Free Calculator or sign up to our mailing list for a free copy of our matched betting spreadsheet as shown below.

For an example of an underlay bet can be seen here….

As a rule just treat it as a Stake Not Returned free bet and look for higher odds to lock in more profit!

Here’s an example of matching with Back Odds of 3 and Lay Odds of 3.5 giving £27.54 profit

Now an example of matching with Back Odds of 6 and Lay Odds of 7 giving £34.17 profit

So even though the higher back / lay odds are not as close together, the overall profit is more. However you will need more money in your betting exchange account to cover the increased liability of laying at higher odds.

These examples show the profit equalised across all outcome but of course you can weight the balance of the bet anyway you like if you favour a particular selection, it really doesn’t matter as either way this is all free money!


Here’s an example based on the current prices as at 5pm on 17/02/14

Step One: Pre match qualifying bet….

The quickest & easiest current method to qualify for this offer is with a simple, pre match back/lay of Barca

BACK Barcelona at Bet365 with £50 at 2.50

LAY Barcelona at Betfair with £49.41 at 2.58 (you will need £78.06 in your Betfair account to cover the liability of this lay bet)

This will give a fixed loss of £3.06 whatever the outcome of the game but will qualify for the free £50 inplay offer

This is how it would look in the spreadsheet

Step Two: In play bet….

Obviously we cannot show the inplay odds in advance as nobody knows exactly what they will be (if I did I would not be here typing this that is for sure!) but if we look at a couple of scenarios using the prices we can see at the moment.

One option would be to jump on straight after kick off as the prices will be virtually the same as they were pre KO unless we get a super quick goal. So in this instance we could just….

BACK 1-1 at Bet365 with £50 at 11

LAY 1-1 at Betfair with £41.84 at 12 (you will need £460.25 in your Betfair account to cover the liability of this lay bet)

This is how it would look in the spreadsheet


If it is 2-1 (after 90 mins). You will win £500 at Bet365 and lose £460.25 at Betfair for a £39.75 profit. So less the £3.06 loss from the qualifying bet gives a net profit of £36.69

If it is not 2-1, then we will lose our £50 at Bet365 and win £39.75 (after 5% commission) at Betfair. So we will be £10.25 down but we will then be refunded our £50 stake by Bet365 so will have a £39.75 profit.

So again, less the £3.06 loss for the qualifying bet gives a net profit of £36.69

Of course the big danger here is that there is a goal between getting the back and lay bets accepted to change the odds or the odds change anyway at one of the sites and you need to recalculate.

So you may prefer to wait for a natural break in play, stoppage, injury etc.. or better still until halftime when there is no action at all to effect the prices. Again we have no idea what these will be but the important thing is to look for close odds and at half time you will have more time to look for higher odds markets so you can maximise the profit in this offer. But a free £30+ risk free profit isn’t bad for a few minutes clicking using the example above is it?

Of course you will be needing a BET365 account for that, so you can grab yourself upto £200 (yes £200) sign up bonues too in the process.

Naturally we have all this covered on Oddsmatcher so can cash all these free bets out for maximum risk free profit and you can use the software too to find the very best match up for the free £50 offer too, brilliant!

Remember however you choose to play it, it is a great offer so, just click below to get cracking……
