    Had a 5 pound free bet with coral the other day, stuck it on a 4 fold, Basel at 18/1, juve to qualify at 2/1,Kilmarnock at 1/1 and waiting on Motherwell at 6/5. Now it’s saying est returns are just over 1200, so as you can imagine I am buzzing and anxiously waiting for Motherwell’s game on sat, but I’ve got a feeling that the est returns isn’t correct. Not clued up on odds myself, so was hoping someone could clarify that they returns are about right. Any help very much appreciated.

    Those returns are correct. You'll get £1,254 if Motherwell win. Fingers crossed for you pal.

    @Cumbernauld Bhoy67 Mate go in the bookie thread & ask for advice. If you have some money you can lay the bet & guarantee yourself a good payout as you can’t cash out on a free bet.
    You will need to cover anything but a Motherwell win to guarantee your payout.
    Some good lads will help you guarantee a result.

    Step away from the computer & keep your hands in your pocket or you will lose all the £5. :34:

    Wait for the advice mate If you put £1245 on & win a grand you will be £245 worse off than when you started. Which means I would’ve owe you £36.75 for my 15% :54:

    Just wait for the bright lads to see the notifications & come in.

    Hamilton double chance is 17/20 on bet365. So, if you were to put 600 on that you'd get 1110 back if Hamilton didn't lose, so you're covered either way. If Motherwell win you'd win £654 rather £1254 and if they don't you'd win £510.

    So, £600 on Hamilton double chance returns £1110.

    Hamilton win or draw = £510 profit
    Motherwell win = £654 profit

    So, you're guaranteed either of them. It's up to you though and whether you have the money to do that, or you can just take the risk. I think anyway.

    Some of the other guys might have better ways of doing it.

    Aye, that seems like a really good idea. Better to be safe and do that, than risk losing out on the whole lot if Motherwell don’t win. Cheers @Moros and @WINTER TIME. I’ll wait till tomorrow though.

    This is the size of it @Cumbernauld Bhoy67 there are-ways to favour a result, or you could try to tweak the above to get approx £600 either way.
