How To Benefit From Football Refund Offers
August 23, 2017
Have you ever been sat watching a boring game of football that ends up as a tepid goalless draw and wished you at least got a winning bet out of it? Punters are notorious for not backing the draw, instead deciding to go for either side to win. However in some cases, the result being a draw can be beneficial to us as matched bettors. This is through football refund offers, many of which give a refund if the match you have bet on ends in a draw.
For example, the list of 138.com betting offers includes the opportunity to earn a refund up to £20 if a selected football match finishes 0-0. The refund is paid as a free bet, of which we can keep around 80% as cash after using matched betting techniques. The matches that qualify for this promotion will be clearly listed each time on the 138.com website, and the eligible markets are Correct Score and Half Time/Full Time.
The way this offer works is to place a qualifying back bet on the bookmakers site and an opposing lay bet on an exchange. With a close match you will more or less break even, so you will be able to play the offer plenty of times at very little or no risk. If your bet loses and the match does end 0-0, you will then be able to turn the £20 free bet refund into around £16 in cash. Admittedly, this offer does only have a small chance of coming in, but as you will be playing for little risk it is worth a few tries. Over time, the estimated value for this offer in particular is £3, taking qualifying losses into account. Bet365 and Dafabet are among the other bookmakers to offer a bore draw refund.
Other Types Of Football Refund Offers
Goalless draw refunds are not the only type of football refund offer though. 21Bet are offering money back on losing First Goalscorer or Correct Score bets on selected games if your bet loses and the match ends in a score draw. The process for the offer is the same, but in this case you will receive the refund if a score draw occurs, such as 1-1 or 2-2. Another type is NetBet’s first goalscorer refund, for which a free bet is credited if your first goalscorer selection doesn’t score the first goal, but gets the second instead.
All of these offers, as well as many more, are listed with full step by step guides in the premium section of MatchedBets.com. This makes it simple for you to make a profit from bookmaker offers with the use of matched betting techniques.
