Top Boxing Day Horse Racing Offers
December 22, 2016
December 26 is one of the best days of the year for sports betting and there are plenty ways to make money matched betting with the top Boxing Day horse racing offers.
Make no mistake, there’s easy money to be made from football offers too. But, I wanted to use this article to point out some of the best racing offers for matched betting since there are eleven meetings in the UK and Ireland scheduled for Boxing Day.
Channel 4 plans to cover five races from Kempton and Wetherby which means five chances to land a £50 risk free bet on bet365. The Channel 4 4/1 offer gives you a £50 risk free bet on the next Channel 4 race when backing a winner at 4/1 or more.
The risk free bet is worth around £40 cash matched betting and there are a number of strategies to milk it, risking a small qualifying loss in the hope of snagging the risk free bet is probably the most profitable in the long term but means you could have days with nothing to show. Use the overlay strategy to play the offer risk free but accept a smaller profit when landing the risk free bet or, if you find a very close match, the offer can be played in a way to guarantee a profit regardless of the result.
Winner will give a £10 free bet for placing four £10 bets on Channel 4 racing, this is an easy way to make around £8 matched betting and when Boxing day comes around, I’d expect another one or two bookmakers to follow suit with similar promotions.
William Hill’s High Five offer is available on all Channel 4 races and could be extended to more races on such a big day. This is a great offer because because it gives two chances to land a free bet. If your horse wins by five lengths or more, you’ll receive a 25% free bet bonus on the winnings up to £100. And, if your horse finishes second beaten by five lengths or more you’ll receive a free bet up to £25 maximum. Some of our Premium members are racking up a healthy profit balance on the back of this offer and will be eager to get stuck into this offer after racing has a couple of days rest for Christmas.
Betstars, Titanbet and Winner offer money back if your horse is a faller. Testing race conditions, long distance races and novice chases tend to see plenty of unseated riders and fallers however we don’t want to see any horses or riders suffer as a result.
Paddy Power will select one of the meetings for its money back if 2nd to the SP favour, this can be a good spinner when matched betting on races with short priced favourites. Boxing Day is the perfect opportunity to build towards bwin’s Festive Freebets offer which will reward customers with a £100 free bet for placing 100 £2 bets before the end of December. We explained in this article how the offer is worth £70 matched betting.
Come the day, there will be even more offers available such a Sky Bet’s First Race Special, Sportingbet’s money back if second in selected races and Ladbroke’s money back if Cue Card wins the King George VI Chase. The problem matched bets members will face is how much money do they want to make and will family commitments allow them the hour or two they’ll need to to make £200 profit, or more for the truly dedicated.
