Selections: Monday 13th to Friday 17th

Hey Team!

This twice-weekly guide provides you with your best options for which big events to use your trigger bets and free bets on, to keep your trigger bet losses to a minimum and your free bet profits to a maximum.

This week has a mixture of football fixtures including Spanish La Liga, Championship, Major League Soccer and the Carabao Cup (EFL Cup). 

Check out the selections below!

Please note you can use the OddsMonkey OddsMatcher (guide) to make more profit and speed up placing your bets too!

Best Trigger Bets For You

The below trigger bets are the best, based on they are:

  • The most popular sporting events this week.
  • Odds between 1.5 to 2.5. Note these are stated at the time of writing, don't worry if the odds have changed a little so long as they are still above the minimum odds (1.5 or 2.0 as stated in our guides).

Which trigger bet should you choose from the below table? Any trigger bet where the game has not started (based on the times listed below) and are above the bookmaker's minimum odds per our welcome offer guides.

Once you have chosen a trigger bet (Step 1 in each welcome offer guide), continue on to Step 2 (calculator the lay stake) from the welcome offer guide you're completing.

If you are new to horse racing, please see the beginner's guide to horse racing. The odds are only announced the evening before the race, so just look to place your bets the evening before or on the day itself!

To place your lay bet, for your convenience I have included the Betfair lay market link.

Best Free Bets For You

If you are following the 'Starting With £25' plan and looking for odds around 2.0, please use one of the trigger bet selections above.

If you're looking to maximise the profit from your free bet, you should be choosing higher odds, as explained in the welcome offer guides. The below free bets are the best, based on they are:

  • The most popular sporting events this week.
  • Odds between 3.0 to 6.0. Note these are stated at the time of writing, don't worry if the odds have changed a little. 

Which free bet should you choose from the below table? Any free bet where the game has not started (based on the times listed below) and you also have sufficient balance in Betfair to cover the liability (check the welcome offer guide which will show you a table with the profit and corresponding liability).

NB: For welcome offers where your free bet is credited immediately, do not place the free bet on the same match as your trigger bet! Simply choose any of the other free bet options. Once you have chosen a free bet, continue with Step 4 from the welcome offer guide you're completing.
