At the time of writing, ‘Draw (Result) / Under 2.5 (Total goals)‘ is available to back at odds of 5.50 (9/2).

You can lay ‘Draw / under 2.5 goals‘ at Smarkets in their ‘Winner and over – 2.5‘ market at odds of 6.20.

Betfair and Smarkets are both great options for this offer. If you’ve not used one of them, now is a great time to give them a try.

You can work out your lay stake using the ‘Money Back if Bet Loses‘ setting on my Matched Betting Calculator. You can enter ‘£8.00‘ as your ‘Cashback’ figure as this is the amount you can expect to convert your £10.00 free bet into, should your bet lose.

As you can see, the calculator tells you that your lay stake should be £7.58.
