STEP 1: Finding your Qualifying Bet

i) Switch to decimal odds

Once logged into Sporting Bet find Settings in the left-hand menu list and switch to ‘EU’ decimal format.


ii) Use the Oddsmonkey Oddsmatcher to find a bet quickly at odds of 4.0 or more

If you haven’t tried the Oddsmatcher yet you can try it here for just £1.

IMPORTANT! Do not bet on horses. For the Qualifying Bet portion of ‘Free Bet if Lose Offers’ we can make more profit the higher odds that we use. How high you can go though will depend on your available balance in Smarkets. We recommend using odds of at least 6.0 if you can.

The table below outlines the estimated liability you will require for the Qualifying Bet portion of this offer and the estimated profit you will make.

Of course if you’re not quite ready to try Oddsmonkey yet you can get help finding a bet to do in our Potential Bet Selections Blog or use the manual approach you learnt during the previous offers.

iii) Select a bet and check the odds at Sporting Bet and Smarkets

Remember on Smarkets: #BLUE BOXES.

Choose a bet from the Oddsmatcher then check the odds are as expected at Sporting Bet and Smarkets. (If not hit ‘Refresh’ on the Oddsmatcher to update the list of available bets). 

STEP 2: Calculate the Lay Bet Amount

Using the Oddsmonkey Risk Free Equal Profit Calculator

You will now need to enter:

  1. Your stake amount at the bookmaker (will be £10 for this offer)
  2. Your back odds at the bookmaker (ideally over 4.0)
  3. The blue box lay odds from Smarkets
  4. Your lay commission at Smarkets (usually 2%)
  5. The amount of the free bet you will be awarded if your Qualifying Bet loses (this will be £10 for this offer)
  6. Your expected percentage profit extraction from the free bet if you receive it (for newbies we recommend to make this 75%)

The calculator then works out your ideal lay stake amount, which you will use for your against bet at Smarkets.


> Check your Smarkets balance is greater than your calculator liability.

> Reduce the chance of partially-matched bets or un-matched bets by making sure the liquidity (amount under blue lay box) is larger than your lay stake amount.

STEP 3: Placing your bets

Place your £10 bet at Sporting Bet first and check it’s confirmed.

Place your lay bet at Smarkets using the ideal lay stake from the Risk Free Equal Profit Calculator.

STEP 4: If your Qualifying Bet...

As you do the offer though remember the minimum odds for the Qualifying Bet are 2.0. You should try do the Qualifying Bet at higher odds though to increase the chances of it losing at Sporting Bet, and your free bet being unlocked.

HOT TIP: Sporting Bet are great for reload offers, we recommend to do a fake mug bet or two if you can after completing the welcome offer.
