It seems Bet365 are going to be doing this offer for all England games – for those who have not seen this, or their offer before – it’s a way to make some easy, risk free profit!
Their offer is that if you bet upto £50 pre-match, your first in-play bet is risk free, upto the same amount. You can then cover a 3rd outcome with another bookmaker, therefore not breaking any T’s & C’s Bet365 layout. For maximum profit, stakes are £50. It’s something I do each time – so for the Russia-England game I made an easy £25 using exactly this method.
Odds are not as clear cut this time – it will require you to wait for a minute or so to get the right odds, but this was the same on Saturday and worked out fine.
So – here’s how:
Using William Hill, back ‘Under 0.5 First Half Goals’ @ 2/1. £50 pays £150.
Using Bet365, back ‘Exactly 1 1st Half Goal’ @ 6/4. £50 pays £125
Once the game kicks off, get ‘Over 1.5 First Half Goals’ into your bet slip. The current price is 2/1, however this was a similar case on Saturday and the price was out to 5/2 within 3 minutes. The price should go out to a around 5/2 within a minute or two – but in all likelihood should go out a little before the game even starts.
**Edit: At 2100 Wednesday price has risen to 9/4**
If you are not happy taking the risk on it, then you can bet on 2nd half goals in a similar way – Over 1.5 2nd Half Goals @ 6/5 with William Hill, Exactly 1 2nd Half Goal @ 7/4 with Bet365 and then back Under 0.5 2nd Half Goals in-play @ 11/4, giving a profit bracket of £10-£37.50.
Given a few minutes in the 1st Half Goals one – this should be the result:
No 1st Half Goals – £100 spent, risk free bet refunded – £150 return
One 1st Half Goal – £100 spent, risk free bet refunded – £125 return
Over 1.5 1st Half Goal – All bets stand – £150+ returned
How long you leave the in play bet will determine how much you make – as soon as it hits 5/2 I will be placing it!
Best of luck
