The risk-free bets

Getting the right bet at the best value odds

Let's take a quick look at our recommendations for some matched bets and accumulators, as of Fri 24th Mar 9:44AM. To get the extensive list of recommendations just click on the bet type you're interested in on the calculator or choose the calculator from the list in the site's navigation.

OK, so let's kick off with a look at some profit-making matched bets. You should be able to lay £14.03 at 8.00 on Things Happen in the 17:05 at Lingfield whilst backing at 8.50 with BetBright. That's a profit of £0.39 (click to see in the calculator) . For the full list of profitable bets, including greater profit with more liability, click here.

If you'd like to take more of a risk, then laying £53.12 at 6.2 on Elbereth in the 20:30 at Dundalk may be the bet for you. If it gets matched then a bet of £25.00 at 6.50 with Betfair Sportsbook would net a profit of £0.10 (click to see in the calculator) . For the full list of risky bets, click here.

If you're just interested in clearing the bonus and don't mind taking a loss, then laying £53.12 at 6.40 on Elbereth in the 20:30 at Dundalk will probably be your best bet. You'd be making a loss of £-0.69 when you bet £25.00 at 6.50 with Betfair Sportsbook (click to see in the calculator) . For the full list of losing bets, click here.

The Accumulators and Full-cover bets

Finally, we have a cheeky Treble bet on Moi Aussie, Ten Sixty and Lycidas in the 14:20, 14:30 and 14:45 at Lingfield, Newbury and Musselburgh respectively. That's with StanJames.
