The third step at Stan James was that they would give me free bet of up to £30 for the average of my next three bets.
For the first bet I went over to the Spanish football market again and bet £30 that Sociedad would beat Real Mallorca at odds of 2.1, and placed a lay of £30.42 against Sociedad at odds of 2.12. Sociedad won so I gained £63 at Stan James but paid out a liability of £34.08 at Betfair, leaving me with an overall loss of £1.08.
For the second bet I bet that Cambridge United would beat Southport at odds of 2.1, and placed a £29.86 lay against Cambridge at odds of 2.16. However, I was multi-tasking by betting with a few facebook conversations and completely fudged the numbers, panicked at for some reason ended up placing a £14.22 bet on Cambridge at Betfair... Luckily, Cambridge won. I received a £63 payout at Stan James, and somehow ended up with a payout of £18.71 at Betfair. Factoring in the £20 I bet at Stan James and the £14.22 I bet at Betfair, my overall loss was only £0.07.
For the third bet I returned to the Spanish football scene and bet that Cordoba would beat Espanyol at odds of 2.75, and placed a lay of £30.22 against Espanyol at odds of 2.78. Cordoba won, so I won £82.50 at the bookies but paid out a liability of £53.79 at Betfair, leaving me with an overall loss of £1.29.
For the free bet I tried to bet the free £30 that the final score between Gimnastic and Murcia would be 0-0, at odds of 8.5. However, Stan James could only match my bet for £26. I accepted this offer and placed a lay of £21.31 against a 0-0 result at odds of 9.2. With the remaining £4 I bet that the score between Guadalajara and Elche would be 0-0, at odds of 9.0, and placed a £3.06 lay at odds of 10.5. Neither of the matches resulted in a 0-0 draw so I lost all the free money at Stan James, but gained £20.24 and £2.91 respectively at Betfair.
Profit from this chapter: £20.24 + £2.91 - £1.08 - £0.07 - £1.29 = £20.71
Overal profit: £57.53 + £20.71 = £78.24
