When Is A Free £10 Bet Worth £20?

When is a free £10 worth £20?

When it’s used as insurance for trading with !

Yes armed with a free £10 from Betfair (thanks Betfair), we grabbed the Trade of The Day from the Trading Football guys on Monday night’s Blackpool v Huddersfield game.

On the menu was the “Covers” strategy which basically works on trading correct scores Over 2.5 Goals with some insurance “Cover” on the Under 2.5 Goals market. We used our free £10 on the Unders and placed the stakes on the scores in the correct score market accordingly.

The goals started to fly in and by half time it was 1-3 to Huddersfield and we had almost £20 profit in the bank. Our work was done, marvelous (£20 for 45 mins is not a bad hourly rate for watching football now is it), look….

Note: As this was a fixed odds free bet too we probably would have only made £7-£8 from this in the convention back / lay method

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, www.bettingsystemnotes.com for all the latest news.

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