  • Tip - To help keep your liability low, place your outright bets on different teams. This is because the exchange only needs to withhold the highest liability team (as only one team can win the World Cup!). See this managing liability blog post for details.

Top Goalscorer Offers - £18 expected profit

Simply back and lay one of the favourites in the goalscorer market for a small qualifying loss. You then get a free bet every time they score!
