Place £10.00 on Man City @ 1.95 = Potential profit of £9.50

Lay £9.65 on Man City @ 2.04 = Potential liability of £10.03


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

Outcome Genting Bet Betfair Profit/Loss
Man City win + £9.50 – £10.03 £0.53 loss
Man City lose or draw – £10.00 + £9.45 £0.55 loss

So, no matter the outcome, we’ll lose a maximum of £0.55 in qualifying for our potential free bet.

Free bet

We’ll receive a free bet equal to the amount of goals scored in the game, up to a maximum of £5.00. Free bets will be credited by 23:59 on Thursday 7th January 2021 and will be valid for 3 days. Free bet stakes will not be included with any returns.

Using straightforward matched betting, we should be able to convert any free bet into 80% cash.

Therefore, if 5 goals are scored in the game, we should be able to get £4.00 cash from our £5.00 free bet. If we take into account our minimum qualifying loss of £0.53, this gives us a potential profit of £3.47 on this Genting Bet offer!
