The third round of the 888sport offer involved me placing 4 bets of at least £10 and receiving a £10 free bet.
For my first qualifying bet I bet £10 that Marseilles would beat Lille at odds of 2.0. I intended to place a lay of £10.05 against Marseilles at odds of 2.04, but accidently placed a lay of £10.50 instead... Marseilles did not beat Lille so I won £20 at 888sport, leaving me with an overall loss of £0.92.
For my second bet I bet £10 that Marseilles would be ahead of Lille at half-time at odds of 2.87 and placed a lay of £10.14 against Marseilles being ahead at odds of 2.88. I lost this bet, so I lost my £10 at 888sport but received £9.63 at Betfair, leaving me with a loss of £0.37.
For my third bet I bet £10 that the HT/FT result in the Marseilles v Lille game would be Marseilles/Marseilles at odds of 3.6, and placed a lay of £10.29 against Marseilles/Marseilles at odds of 3.55. I lost this bet so I lost my £10 at 888sport, but gained £9.78 at Betfair, leaving me with a loss of £0.22.
For my fourth and final qualifying bet I bet £10 that the match between Laval and Istres would end up in a draw at odds of 3.1, and placed a lay of £10.16 against the draw at odds of 3.1. I lost this bet so lost my £10 at 888sport but gained £9.65 at Betfair, leaving me with a loss of £0.35.
I then received a free bet of £10. I placed it on a result of 0-0 in the game between Wigan and Man City at odds of 17.0, and placed a lay of £8.67 against a 0-0 result at odds of 18.5. Man City won the game 1-0, so I lost the free £10 at 888sport but gained £8.24 at Betfair.
Profit for this chapter: £8.24 - £0.92 - £0.37 - £0.22 - £0.35 = £6.38
Overall profit: £175.38 + £6.38 = £181.76
