betfair exchange odds on in-play offer key terms

  • Available on selected races only

  • Max refund £10 paid as cash
  • Backed horse must go odds on in-play and not win the race to qualify

how to make a profit from the offer

Matched betting this offer is thankfully very simple and requires just a back and a lay bet on a horse to win. The aim is to find a match with a low qualifying loss and hope that the horses odds shorten to 2.0 or less while the race is taking place and also that the horse doesn't win.

There is a relatively small chance of you receiving a refund and so it is essential that you keep qualifying losses to a minimum.

As the maximum refund is £10, you do not want to stake much more than this unless the qualifying loss is zero. You may wish to stake a little more or less so that your bets look more natural but staking a lot more generally means that your qualifying loss will be higher.

If you aim for a qualifying loss of £0.50 or less then that gives you 20 attempts to trigger the refund and break even. If you trigger the refund before 20 attempts then you will be in profit.

Use an Odds Matcher tool or a specific horse racing tool such as the Horse Racing Matcher from MatchedBets to find a close match. As you are backing a hose to win on Betfair Exchange, it is important to use a different betting exchange such as Smarkets or Matchbook to lay your bet.

Important things to remember

  • Keep qualifying losses to a minimum or the offer isn't worth doing
  • Look for close matches on horses with odds close to 4.0 but not any lower
  • Only bet on eligible races as shown on the Betfair Exchange promo page
  • Use a betting exchange other than Betfair Exchange to lay your bets
