Place £10.00 on Belgium @ 2.375 = Potential profit of £13.75

Lay £9.73 on Belgium @ 2.46 = Potential liability of £14.20


Let’s have a look at our potential profit/loss for the possible outcomes…

Outcome Bookie Exchange Profit/Loss
Belgium win + £13.75 – £14.20 £0.45 loss
Belgium don’t win – £10.00 + £9.53 £0.47 loss

So, regardless of the outcome, we’ll lose a maximum of £0.47 in qualifying for our potential free bet.

Free Bets:

We’ll receive a £5.00 free bet if Harry Kane scores anytime. Free bets will be credited by 12:00 on Monday 16th November 2020 and will be valid until 09:00 on Tuesday 17th November 2020.

Using straightforward matched betting, we should be able to convert our free bet into 80% cash, so £4.00. If we take into account our minimum qualifying loss of £0.45, this gives us a potential profit of £3.55 on this Betfred offer!
