At the time of writing, Queens Brook is back odds of 5.50 (9/2) to win the 13:30 on Tuesday. The lay odds are currently 5.60.
If your horse wins, you’ll be able to convert your £50.00 ‘Money back if bet loses’ bet into 75% cash. You can therefore add 0.75 to the back odds to get your effective odds…
5.50 + 0.75 = 6.25
Using my Matched Betting Calculator, you simply enter 6.25 as your back odds instead of 5.50 lay the amount shown. Overlaying like this is fine, but the fixed profits are likely small.
Your second option is to lay Your bets as usual and hope your horses win for bigger profits.
You can calculate your lay stake using my Matched Betting Calculator…
As you can see, the calculator tells you that your lay stake should be £49.28…
Place £50.00 on Queens Brook @ 5.50 = Potential profit of £225.00
Lay £49.28 on Queens Brook @ 5.60 = Potential liability of £226.68
Let’s look at your potential profit/loss for the possible outcomes…
So, you’ll make a nice profit of £35.82 if Queens Brook wins; otherwise, you’ll lose £1.71. Risking £1.71 to make a potential profit of £35.82 gives you effective odds of 21.95. So, given that Queens Brook is odds of just 5.50 (9/2) to win the race, this is a profitable offer in the long run.
