On to the fourth round of the Stan James offer where they match the value of your next four bets with a free bet (up to £40). For the first qualifying bet I bet £40 that Sunderland would beat Peterborough at odds of 2.0 and placed a lay of £39.80 against Sunderland at odds of 2.06. Sunderland indeed won, so I won £80 at Stan James but paid out a liability of £42.15 at betfair, leaving me with an overall loss of £2.15.
For the second qualifying bet I bet £40 that Sevilla would beat Rayo Vallecano at odds of 2.4 and placed a lay of £39.18 against Sevilla at odds of 2.5. Rayo Vallecano won, so I lost the £40 at Stan James but gained £37.22 at Betfair - leaving me with a loss of £2.78.
For the third qualifying bet I bet £40 that West Ham would beat Sheffield Wed at odds of 2.5, and placed a lay of £40.82 against West Ham at odds of 2.5. In the end West Ham lost against Sheffield so I lost the £40 at Stan James but gained £38.78 at Betfair, leaving me with an overall loss of £1.22.
For the final qualifying bet I bet £20 that Napoli would beat Palermo at odds of 2.2, and placed a lay of £39.11 against Napoli at odds of 2.3. Napoli won indeed, so I won £88 at Stan James but paid out a liability of £50.84 at Betfair, leaving me with a loss of £2.84.
My account was then credited with a free bet of £40. I tried to place a bet on the result of the Angers v Monaco game being 0-0 at odds of 8.5 but Stan James could only match this to £20. I accepted this, and then placed a lay of £17.14 against a 0-0 result at odds of 8.8. I ended up losing this bet so lost the free £20 at Stan James but gained £16.28 at Betfair.
For my second free bet I bet £20 that Panionios would beat Panathinaikos at odds of 7.0. I placed a lay of £18.90 against Panionios at odds of 6.4. I lost the bet and therefore lost the free £20 at Stan James, but gained £17.95 at Betfair.
Profit from this chapter: £16.28 + £17.95 - £2.15 - £2.78 - £1.22 - £2.84 = £25.24
Overall profit: £102.51 + £25.24 = £127.75
