## Ladbrokes In-Play Offer – £17 Profit

Match: Arsenal v Tottenham

Kick-off (UK time): 8/11/2015 @ 16:00

As part of my matched betting blog and challenge, I'm bringing some great offers that will help you make some profits along the way too.  You can find more offers like this in the matched betting tips section of the site.

Ladbrokes are increasingly throwing money into the free bets arena and this is one of the very best offers around.  Place a pre-match bet of £25 or more on Arsenal v Tottenham and another £25 in-play and Ladbrokes will refund you £25 in cash if your in-play bet loses.

Thanks to a little bit of maths, we are guaranteed a risk-free profit of around £16 and there are 2 ways of going about this.  I'll start off with the ultra simple method with no lay bets required.

## Method 1 – The 3 Bet Wonder

Place 2 bets pre-match and your in-play bet as soon as the match kicks off and this offer is complete with a profit guaranteed

• Bet 1 = Pre-match – Bet £59 on Arsenal to win at odds of 1.70 @ Ladbrokes (£41.30 profit from Bet 1)
• Bet 2 = Pre-match – Bet £24 on the draw at odds of 4.15 @ Unibet (£75.60 profit from Bet 2)
• Bet 3 = In-play – Bet £25 on Tottenham to win at odds of 5.00 @ Ladbrokes (£100 profit from Bet 3)

£17.30 Profit if Arsenal win

• Bet 1 = £41.30 Profit
• Bet 2 = £24 Loss
• Bet 3 = No Loss as £25 is refunded in cash

Therefore £41.30 – £24 = £17.30

£16.60 Profit if match is a draw

• Bet 1 = £59 Loss
• Bet 2 = £75.60 Profit
• Bet 3 = No Loss as £25 is refunded in cash

Therefore £75.60 – £59 = £16.60

£17.00 Profit if Tottenham win

• Bet 1 = £59 Loss
• Bet 2 = £24 Loss
• Bet 3 = £100 Profit

Therefore £100 – £59 – £24 = £17.00

## Method 2

### Step 1 – Your Qualifying Bet

You must have an account with Smarkets – Click here now if you need one

Go to the match in Ladbrokes

Find a close match between the back odds on Laddies and the lay odds on Smarkets.

Place a £25 bet with Ladbrokes

Lay this selection off at Smarkets rather than Betfair.  Smarkets only charge 2% commission compared to 5% charged by Betfair & BetDaq.  These savings add up to hundreds of pounds over the year, so make sure you get a Smarkets account now.

Don't lose more than £2 on your qualifying bet

### Step 2 – Your Free Bet

Once the match has gone in-play you now have to place another £25 bet.

Wait until half-time to place your free bet as the odds are stable and no red cards, penalties or goals can be scored.

The higher the odds this is placed on, the more profit you will make but make sure you have enough money at Smarkets to cover it.

Your total profit will be the free bet winnings minus the qualifying bet loss and will come out at around £16.
