Check the Exchange lay odds aren't drastically higher than the back odds
Ideally the chosen bet should have the lay bet odds within 10% of the bookmaker odds.
For example, if your bookmaker odds are 2.0, aim for Betfair Exchange lay odds no higher than 2.2.
The next step in your laying process is super important and must be done before placing every lay bet.
Check the small £s under the lay odds. This is called liquidity and if this number is not higher than your required lay stake, do not place the bet as it will not fully match.
Example If you need to lay £13 on the exchange:
Betfair Liquidity here is £3945 on the Lay odds (pink). GOOD - Fine to lay
Liquidity here is only £10 on the Lay odds. BAD - Do not lay
If the £s under the odds are higher than your required lay stake, you can go ahead and place your bets.
Place your exchange lay bet
Use the lay amount from the calculator in Step 2 and enter that into the 'Backer's Stake' on the exchange
Again, do a 'Liquidity' check explained in step 1 to ensure there is enough money available to lay your stake.
The 2 x £10 free bets are added shortly after your trigger bet is settled. The free bets expire within 7 days.
We now repeat Steps 1 to 3 as we did in the trigger bet part with one change in each step.

Place a lay bet to lock in profit from the free bet
For the Exchange lay bet, you only place this once. This is because you entered £20 into the calculator earlier and so have all free bets covered as one.
Check the liquidity is higher than the required stake.
Once the free bet has settled...
