Sky Bet Go Big For Glorious Goodwood
July 31, 2017
We are all set for one of the highlights of the racing calendar, as ‘Glorious Goodwood’ is just around the corner. The gates will be opened on Tuesday 1st August, with the event running until Saturday 5th. Every year the meeting seems to become more and more popular, and one of the largest race meetings in the world is sure to deliver in 2017. Now named the Qatar Goodwood Festival for sponsorship reasons, the event often persuades bookmakers to be generous in their offers and this is certainly the case for Sky Bet this year.
Sky Bet have decided to offer Money Back as a Free Bet, up to £20, if your horse loses in the first race, the 1.50 on Tuesday. This risk-free bet gives us a fantastic opportunity to add to our profits. It is unclear whether they’ll continue with this offer for each day of the festival, or whether they’ll revert to another incentive such as Money Back if 2nd or Money Back if 2nd or 3rd which they have offered in the past.
Matched Betting Value
When matched betting, this is an extremely lucrative offer, as we will be able to guarantee a profit of around £14. If they were to extend the offer to each day of the festival, this could land us £70 profit across the week. As it stands though, it is only offered for day one. To complete the offer, first we must place a £20 bet on a selection to win the 1.50 at Goodwood while also using the Matched Bets calculator to work out the ideal lay stake.
If your horse then wins, you will have made a good profit and will be done with the offer. If your horse loses, Sky Bet will credit you with a free bet withing 24 hours, which will then be valid for 3 days. You can then use your free bet to guarantee a profit, by placing it on a back bet while laying against the same selection on the exchange. Remember, when following the Matchedbets.com offer guide for this offer you will be able to profit whatever the outcome. So sit back, relax and enjoy the festival.
