Bet365 Risk Free In Play Offer (£50)

This is one of the most legendary offers for matched betters being worth £30 to £35 profit risk free!

The Bet365 risk free in play offer is typically ran once or twice a month, on major Premier League or Champions League matches.

You will need £100 in your Bet365 and £150 in your Betfair Exchange account to complete this offer.

Bet365 Risk Free In Play Offer Summary

Place a pre-match bet up to £50 on Juventus vs Real Madrid (19:45 Saturday 3rd June) and an in-play bet of the same value.

If your in-play bet loses, Bet365 give you a refund in cash!

To complete this offer, we back and lay a pre-match event with a close rating as a normal trigger bet.

We can then view our in-play bet as a free bet as our stake is returned if we lose.

So we back our in-play at higher odds to maximise value and lay off in the exchange to guarantee a profit of up to £35 risk free.

Step By Step Guide

We can complete this offer completely risk-free by using a method called matched betting. This method locks in a guaranteed £35 profit - no matter the result of the match! Keep reading for a step-by-step guide of what to do:

  • Go to the Bet365 market.

  • There are no minimum odds so check the odds for the either team to win (or draw). Preferably choose the team with odds of between 1.5 to 2.5 to minimise the amount you need to lay off.

    Below is a table that shows the Betfair liabilities based on a £50 trigger bet:

    £50 Trigger Bet Back Odds Betfair Liability
    1.5  £30
    2.0  £55
    2.5  £80

    At the time of writing the odds are Juventus 3.0, Draw 3.1 and Real Madrid 2.7, so I would recommend placing your trigger bet on Real Madrid to minimise liability.

    To view decimal odds rather than fractional odds, go to the main menu:

  • Check the Betfair Exchange lay odds are within 10% of the bookmaker odds. The closer the better to minimise trigger bet loss.

    At the time of writing, Betfair Exchange lay odds are Juventus 3.1, the draw 3.2 and Real Madrid 2.78 so these are all good options.

  • Enter your stake, back odds and lay odds into the Calculator:


    This should give you a trigger bet loss of around £3 to £4. This is more than compensated by making £30+ profit from the risk free in-play bet in Step 4.

    • Place your £50 Bet365 bet and place your Betfair Exchange lay bet using the lay amount from Step 2 in Backer's Stake

    Note you do not receive a free bet. Instead you need to place a £50 in-play bet. If this bet loses, then you get it refunded in cash! In effect, this is exactly the same as a £50 free bet.

    I recommend completing the below at half time. This is because the in-play odds move the least during half time.

    We now repeat Steps 1 to 3 as we did in the trigger bet part with one change in each step:

    • Step 1: Choose a team or the draw with higher odds to make a larger profit:

      £50 Free Bet
      Back Odds
      Your Profit
      2.0 £30 £21
      3.0 £75 £30
      4.0 £125 £33
      5.0 £170 £35
      6.0 £225 £37
    • Step 2: Select 'Free Bet SNR' in the Calculator as 'bet type'.

      The calculator will show a profit of between £20 to £37 depending on the odds you have chosen.

    • Step 3: As this is not a free bet, just place your Bet365 bet using you own cash.

    Congratulations - £35 Profit Risk Free!

    If your £50 Bet365 in play bet lost, then you will receive the £50 refund as cash within 24 hours. You will then make a profit in the Exchange of between £20 to £37.

    If your £50 Bet365 in play bet wonthen you will win between £20 to £37 more in Bet365 than you lost (the liability) in the Exchange.
