Key Terms:

Qualifying bets must be placed between 08:00 on Wednesday 2nd January 2019 and 20:00 (kick-off) on Thursday 3rd January 2019.
The eligible markets are First/Last/Anytime Goalscorer, Correct Score and #GetAPrice.
If our bet loses, Ladbrokes will refund our stake as a free bet, up to a maximum of £10.00.

Qualifying Bet:

If you’re unsure about how to place qualifying bets, check out my Qualifying Bet Strategy page for a walk-through guide on how it should be done.

Losing stakes are refunded as a free bet, so this is effectively a risk-free bet offer. We therefore need to select something with long odds.

Having looked at the odds available, we could place our qualifying bet on a 2-2 draw in the Correct Score market.

At the time of writing, laying our bet at Smarkets is likely to give us the biggest guaranteed profit.
