Bet 365 are running a great promo tonight on the Manchester Derby. (Manchester City Vs Manchester United).

If you place any bet on the match prior to kick off Bet 365 will refund your stake on your first in play bet, should it lose, up to the value of your initial bet, up to a maximum of £50.

Free Money Bet

The obvious thing to do then is to find a bet where the price at Betfair is close to the Bet 365 price and to make a £50 bet at Bet 365 and lay that bet off at Betfair.

Then when the match is underway do the same again.

The closest price as I write this is Man City to win at 2.1 at Bet365 and 2.22 at Betfair.

So place a £50 bet at Bet 365 on Man City to win and then a lay bet for £48.39 at Betfair. This will lose you £4.03 whatever the outcome, but for that £4 you have qualified yourself for a free bet.

When the match goes in play you can then make another £50 bet at Bet 365 and have the stake refunded if you lose.

Or you can do the same again and lay off the bet at Betfair.

If you want to lay the bet off which should guarantee you around a £30 profit then the best time to do that will be during half time when the markets are stable.

To calculate your stakes use the free calculator at tick the option that says Free bet, stake not returned to calculate the bet you should make at Betfair to secure your free money.

Then sit back and enjoy the match and wait for your free money to arrive.
