Let’s look at how to play this offer…

Step 1 – Place our qualifying bet:

Given that this offer is Money Back if Dortmund wins, it makes sense to back Schalke in the Match Odds market. Do not back Dortmund to win. You can bet on any market, but this is the best option for getting a profit. The Schalke win is 5.5 (9/2) with Paddy Power.

Step 1: Place £10 on Schalke to win at 5.5 with Paddy Power.

Step 2 – Lay off on the exchanges:

After placing our qualifying bet, we’re going to lay off our bet with Paddy Power on the exchanges. The Schalke win is currently 6.2 to lay on Betfair. To get the correct stakes we can use the Profit Rush Bet Calculator. Put all this information into the calculator and you will get this screen:

As you can see, we have to lay Schalke for £8.90 at 6.2 on Betfair. The liability for this bet is £46.28. This results in a set-up cost of -£1.28, but let’s look at our possible outcomes…

If Schalke win£45-£46.28-£1.28
If Dortmund winCashback£8.72£8.72
If it’s a draw-£10£8.72-£1.28

At the time of writing, the Dortmund win is trading 1.63 on Betfair. This is clearly a huge value bet! Effectively we are getting odds of 7.81 on Dortmund winning when the actual price is 1.63. As you can see from the figures, this is a highly profitable offer in the long-term…
