Free Bet Trading

Posted on November 30, 2012 by  

Another successful night in using a free bet as trading insurance.

The screen above shows our green position on the Shakhtar v Chelsea Champions League game when Oscar scored the 3rd goal of the game, using our old friend the Clint trading strategy from

Having secured a free £10 bet from Ladbrokes over the weekend (which we picked up for a small profit thanks to Oddsmatcher Pro) we used this as insurance cover in case the game ended under 2.5 goals.

Shakhtar scoring on 3 mins put us in a very strong position from the word go as the Over 2.5 went from 1.92 (where we backed) down to 1.34 instantly, so we removed some of our liability on the Under 2.5 market to ensure we were in a no lose position so our work was virtually done.

And with Chelsea scoring near the end maximised our overall profits to £16. Not a bad return from a free £10 bet with next to no intervention. In fact we were off trading other games as this one looked after itself!

This is a new concept we are looking to develop using a variety of different angles here at Bet72, in conjunction with Trading Football.

Using free bets as free insurance can provide a massive edge both in terms the value of the freebie but also the way in which you trade and your returns on the matches too.

Likewise we are also developing some crossover strategies to utilise the “If” offers (detailed here) for example utilising bookmaker refunds on 0-0 draws and cashbacks on selected occurrences in a game as defined by the bookie.

Exciting times ahead so watch this space and over on our dedicated trading site, for all the latest news.

Right off to collect some more free bets before the action later!

    Had a nice profit on the Ajax/Man City game thanks to the 50 teletext Man city offer. Took the enhanced odds of 2/1 (3.0) and layed Man City at betfair at 1.79. A nice £30 profit after commission. Thanks guys…
