The Pools - QPR v Luton Offer

It’s QPR v Luton in the Championship on Friday night and The Pools are getting in on the action! Place £5.00 on both teams to score at boosted odds of 5/4 and qualify for a £5.00 free bet if you bet a further £20.00 on selected events. Translated into matched betting terms, this gives us a guaranteed profit of £7.19 and here’s how…

Price boost

In order to qualify for the two ‘Bet £20, Get £5’ offers, we need to place a bet of £5.00+ on BTTS: Yes at boosted odds of 2.25 (5/4).

For a walkthrough of how to lay price boosts, please see my price boosts guide.

We can calculate our lay stake using my Matched Betting Calculator…

As you can see, the calculator tells us that our lay stake should be £6.32…

Place £5.00 on ‘BTTS: Yes’ @ 2.25 = Potential profit of £6.25

Betfair logo

Lay £6.32 on ‘Both teams to Score? – Yes’ @ 1.80 = Potential liability of £5.05


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

Outcome The Pools Betfair Profit/Loss
Both teams score – Yes + £6.25 – £5.05 £1.20 profit
Both teams score – No – £5.00 + £6.19 £1.19 profit

So, no matter the outcome, we’ll make a minimum profit of £1.19 in qualifying for our two ‘Bet £20, Get £5’ offers.

Qualifying bets

If you’d like more information about qualifying bets and how they work, please see my qualifying bets guide.

To qualify for the 2 x £5.00 free bets, we must bet £20.00 on both any top tier European football league match and any horse racing market on Friday 19th November 2021 at minimum odds of 1.20 (1/5).

We can calculate our lay stakes using my Matched Betting Calculator.

Aim to lose no more than £1.00 on each of our qualifying bets

So, we’ll lose a total of around £2.00 in qualifying for our £10.00 in free bets.

Free bets

Our 2 x £5.00 free bets will be credited by midday the day following bet settlement and will be valid for 7 days.

Using straightforward matched betting, we should be able to convert our free bets into 80% cash, so £8.00. If we take into account our total expected qualifying loss of £2.00 and our price boost minimum qualifying profit of £1.19, this gives us an overall guaranteed profit of £7.19 on this The Pools offer!
