Premier League and Championship football returns this week and you don’t want to miss this Coral risk-free bet offer! Simply place a £1.00+ bet on any football market from any league in the world and if it loses, Coral will refund our stake as a free bet, up to a maximum of £10.00. Translated into matched betting terms, this gives us a guaranteed profit of £5.86 and here’s how…

Key Terms:

  • Minimum stake of £1.00.
  • Applies to our first losing football bet, placed between 08:00 on Monday 15th June 2020 and 23:59 on Friday 26th June 2020.
  • If our bet loses, Coral will refund our stake as a free bet, up to a maximum of £10.00.

Qualifying Bet:

Losing stakes are refunded as a free bet, so we can treat this as a risk-free bet offer.

We’ll need to place our qualifying bet at long odds in order to maximise our profit.

Having looked at the odds available, we could place our qualifying bet on Arsenal to beat Man City on Wednesday 17th June 2020.

At the time of writing, laying our bet at Betfair is likely to give us the biggest guaranteed profit.

Betfair are currently offering new customers 0% commission up to £500 for the first 30 days.

We can work out our lay stake by using the ‘Risk-Free Bet setting on my matched betting calculator. We can enter £8.00 as our ‘Cashback’ figure as this is the amount we can expect to extract (80%) from our £10.00 free bet refund, should our horse lose…

As you can see, the calculator tells us that our lay stake should be £8.04…

Outcomes:

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

Arsenal don’t win -£10.00 +£7.87 +£8.00 £5.87 profit

So, no matter the outcome, we’ll make a guaranteed profit of £5.86 on this Coral offer!

If eligible, our free bet will be credited within 24 hours of our qualifying bet being settled and will be valid on any sports market for 7 days. Free bet stakes are not included in any returns.
