Qualifying bet

If your qualifying bet loses, Betfair will refund your bet as a free bet, so you can treat this as a ‘Money back if bet loses’ offer.

You can work your put on bet using the ‘Money back if the bet loses‘ in my Combined Betting Calculator. You may come in ‘£8.00‘ as your ‘Cashback’ value, as this is the amount you can expect to convert your £10.00 free bet to in case your bet loses.

As you can see, the calculator tells you that your put on bet must be £4.44.

Put £10.00 into ‘Over 2.5 Goals’ @ 1.50 = Potential profit of £4.75

Put £4.44 under ‘Over 2.5’ (Goals) @ 1.54 = £2.39 Potential Liability


Let’s look at your profit/loss for possible outcomes.
