If your qualifying bet loses, Betfair will refund your stake as a free bet, so you can treat this as a Money Back if Bet Loses offer.
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 that 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 £4.76.
Place £10.00 on ‘Over 2.5 goals’ @ 1.59 = Potential profit of £5.61
Lay £4.76 on ‘Over 2.5’ (Goals Over/Under – 2.5) @ 1.60 = Potential liability of £2.85
