Lay £9.86 on Man Utd @ 2.10 = Potential liability of £10.84


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

Outcome Bookie Exchange Profit/Loss
Man Utd win + £10.50 – £10.84 £0.34 loss
Man Utd don’t win – £10.00 + £9.66 £0.34 loss

So, regardless of the outcome, we’ll lose £0.34 in qualifying for our potential free bet.

Free Bets:

We’ll receive a £5.00 free bet if Man Utd and Arsenal both score. Free bets will be credited by 12:00 on Monday 2nd November 2020 and will be valid until 09:00 on Tuesday 3rd November 2020.

Using straightforward matched betting, we should be able to convert our free bet into 80% cash, so £4.00. If we take into account our qualifying loss of £0.34, this gives us a potential profit of £3.66 on this Betfred offer!
