It Could Get Messi

Posted on May 25, 2011 by  

Well according to Victor Chandler, it could. Well not if you keep up with offers like this Victor.

Champions League Final – Barcelona v Man Utd, Sat 28th May, 7.45pm KO

If LIONEL MESSI or WAYNE ROONEY score at ANYTIME in the match (inc Extra Time), we’ll refund all losing Correct Score, First / Last Goalscorer and HT/FT bets as a FREE BET!

Maximum refund £50 (or currencey equivalent) per person. Applies to singles only placed prior to kick-off. Internet, mobile and telephone bets only. Free bets credited Monday 30th May. Does not include penalty shoot-out.

Obviously plenty of ways you can play this for a chance of some cashback or you can look to lock in some guaranteed risk free profits using our tried and tested method.

All you need to do is find a close matchup in odds on any of the above markets to back and lay. Then lay a few £’s on Rooney or Messi as an “Anytime Scorer” on Betfair. We will publish some examples once the scorer markets are up on Betfair but they should be available at a decent price to lay so we should be able to lock in a few quid here.

UPDATE: Prices not great so not much to go on at the moment…..

Basically look to BACK / LAY 0-0 for £50, then LAY Rooney (4) or Messi (2.64) in the TO SCORE market to lock in the profit.

BACK 0-0 @ VC with £50 @ 7.5
LAY 0-0 @ BF with £39.27 @ 9.6 (£337.72 to cover)

LAY MESSI (To Score) with £15.44 @ 2.64 (£25.32 to cover)


0-0 – Lose £12.70 on correct score / Win £14.66 on MESSI = £1.96

Not 0-0 / MESSI doesn’t score – Lose £12.70 on correct score / Win £14.66 on MESSI = £1.96

Not 0-0 / MESSI does score – Lose £12.70 on correct score / Lose £25.32 on MESSI = -£38.02

With a free £50 to come from VC. If we assume the value to be 80% as it is a Stake Not Returned offer then that is £40 so a £1.98 profit

The bonus would be that Rooney scores and Messi doesn’t as you would get the free bet refund and the profit. So maybe if the odds improve could look at switching the bet around if you think Messi has more chance of scoring.

All the calculations can be done using our ever so handy spreadsheet, as featured in the Paddypower cashback offer here….
