Quarter finals time for the one and only English team left in the Champions League, and as always – Bet365 are doing their offer where if you place a bet on PSG vs Man City pre-match, your first in-play bet is risk free – upto £50. As always, we are going to find a way to make a little bit of guaranteed profit.
This time, our usual routes of Match Result or First Half Goals are not viable as the prices do not allow it. I found various ways to make £50-60 but there was a way of losing technically, and a risk that the markets might not be on offer in-play, so I’ve played it a little safe and because of that the lowest return is around £12.50, but upto a max of £80 or so.
Back PSG – Half Time Result @ 5/4 (£50 pays £112.50). This is basically for PSG to be winning at half time. Do this with William Hill or Paddy Power as their price for the Draw is worse than Bet365
Back Draw – Half Time Result @ 13/10 (£50 pays £115) with Bet365. This will qualify you for the offer.
Once the game starts, back Man City – Half Time Result @ 15/4 (£50 pays £237) – leave it a few minutes and the price might go out past 4/1, but should Man City score it will drop massively. This is the most unlikely of the three, and with the highest price must be the risk free bet. Again, to make sure there are no mistakes – back this with Bet365 (since this is who the offer is with…I know, it’s obvious, but there are some idiots out there!)
PSG Winning @ HT = £12.50 profit, risk free bet refunded. £100 spent, £112.50 returned
Draw @ HT = £15 profit, risk free bet refunded. £100 spent, £115 returned
Man City Winning @ HT = £87 profit. All three bets stand, £150 spent, £237 returned
The half-time result market will be available in-play, as it is with pretty much all games on Bet365.
Not the greatest of markups, but should City pull off a huge shock it’s still possible to make over £80. At worst, you will have made an easy £12-15. That’s a free-bet, takeaway or even money in the bank!
This is very similar to Matched Betting – which we wrote an article about a few months ago. Well worth a read for those who prefer to bet with no risk!
Have a great day!
