BET365 are doing their popular in-play bet offer for the fifth time in recent weeks.

If you place a pre-match bet on the Stoke v Man United game – up to £50 – which kicks off at 12.45pm on New Year’s Day then bet365 will give you a risk-free in-play bet to the same stake. Also we have 5x£10 free bets to give away in a contest linked to the promo.

To have a chance of winning one of the £10 free bets simply comment here with your pre-match bet and then during the game with an inplay bet and if both are priced at over evens and both win we’ll put you into the hat for a random draw to win a tenner. You don’t need to place these bets to enter the contest.

To qualify for your risk-free in-play bet365 bet simply place a bet before kick-off, then once the game starts place another bet on any in-play market. If your FIRST in-play bet loses bet365 will refund this stake up to the same value as your largest pre-match bet (max £50).

You can try to do a low-risk first bet and take a chance on the second – or do bets that guarantee profit. It’s up to you – but make sure you check the rules before having a bet. Also check out previous posts on the inplay offers for plenty of advice on how to play it.

Remember to enter the contest comment with a pre-match bet before the 12.45pm then come back on inplay and post your inplay bet. Anyone with two winners over evens will have a chance to win a prize.

    good chance of a red here , hoping for a feisty affair

  8. Keith 3 years ago

    £50 pre match bet on Man Utd @ 2.00 = 100.00. Profit £25.00
    £50 in play bet on draw @ 3.50 = £175. Profit £50.00

    On another site, place 25.00 bet on Stoke @ 4.00 = £100.00. Profit 25.00

    I know that this is boring, and I salute those of you who are braver and more adventurous than me, but, in keeping with the mantra preached so often by experts on this site, I prefer to guarantee profit.

    Best of luck to everyone whichever direction they choose to go in.

  10. hammer 3 years ago

    surely the over 2.5 goals and draw approach is very risky? what if either side wins 1 or 2 nil? which are fairly likely results.

  11. Simon 3 years ago

    Over 0.5 goals pre-match, van Persie to score anytime inplay.

  14. Alves 3 years ago

    Bald Bloke you can cash out the in olay offer as that’s your ££ but if you do obviously you don’t get the stake back. I’ve covered the draw before on next goal as I could’ve got lucky on another 2 gls and matches finishes 2-2 but only £30 at evens around 75 mins but if it’s 3-1 with 10 mins to go guessing it’ll be around £4/500 mark, I’d take that defo. Goal scorer bets can’t be cashed out tho

  15. Wolerine 3 years ago

    Lads read what Mr F is asking you all to do….’To enter the contest comment with a pre-match bet then come back on inplay and post an inplay bet’.

    So post pre-match anytime between now and 12:45 tomorrow then login again after then and post your inplay as the prices you’re posting at the minute won’t be the same once the game kicks off.

    A lot of you may well end up ruling yourselves out of a chance to win. Just trying to help everyone out.

    My pre-match is Man Utd win @ evens

  16. Duncan Poundcake 3 years ago

    Cheers Wolverine , so

    • Wolerine 3 years ago

      Cheers Gaz H, I’ll wait to see what Mr F says and change it accordingly. Thanks for the heads up.

  21. Alves 3 years ago

    I’ll go for Rooney anytime 13/8

  22. balsh 3 years ago

    Not part of the competition, but for anyone trying to score from the offer:

    £50 wilson palacious anytime goalscorer pre match (refunded as he won’t play)

    Then your In play bet is completely up to you. £50 on man u myself. Probably wait 15-20 mins. Get better odds than evens. EITHER WAY ITS RISK FREE. PALACIOUS HAS PLAYED 0 MINS THIS SEASON. won’t even make bench.

    You could cover all result outcomes but would have to be either;

    Man u pre match at evens to win £50 profit, and stoke/draw double chance in play to lose £10 (current odds only 1.8)


    Stoke draw pre match to win £40 and man u in play to break even

    Not worth it in my opinion.

    Could also do overs pre match and under inplay. Or vice versa.
    Fancy unders myself as stoke have kept 2 clean sheets on the trot and man u failed to score last outing. Also Stoke won this fixture last year. Could be a tight game.


  23. craig gardner 3 years ago

    Its very simple…50 on under 4.5 goals tiny prifit…inplay 50 on over 4.5 7/1..a free 50 on a 7/1 shot will do me..btw ah done the same bet in the last offer lpool v swans..good luck 2 all

  27. Jay 3 years ago

    Can you do something like:

    Btts – no – £41.66 (prematch)
    Btts – yes – £41.66 (in play)


    Stoke/draw double chance – £41.66 (prematch)
    Man u win – £50(in play)

  28. Kinghalbert 3 years ago

    I go along with the over 0.5 goals as the first bet. Then hold off on the second free bet to see how the match is going.

    When the first goal is scored then place on next goalscorer picking a player from the team on top.

    If no score after 70 minutes then place bet on 0-0

    I know it’s possible to guarantee a shall profit but sticking 50 quid on next scorer at 8/1 or 10/1 it infinitely more exciting.

  29. danny 3 years ago

    £50 pre game on over 0.5 1st half goals
    £50 in-play on half time correct score 0-0

    make sense ?

    • Daz1874 3 years ago

      Good shout for easy £20 if a goal scored before HT and around £87 profit if it’s 0-0 at Ht using in play bet of £50.

  30. Angela 3 years ago

    *** Stoke City v Man Utd – Bet365 in-play offer ***

    1) Place £50.00 pre-bet on Man Utd to WIN @ 1/1 – Returns = £100.00
    2) Place £20.00 pre-bet on Stoke City to WIN @ 14/5 – Returns = £76.00
    3) Place your £50.00 in-play bet on DRAW @ 13/5 – Returns = £180.00


    1) If Man Utd WIN you will receive £100.00 minus the £50 pre-bet which you placed and also minus the £20.00 placed with Skybet on the Stoke WIN = PROFIT MADE: £30.00

    2) If match ends in a DRAW you will receive £180.00 minus the £50 pre-bet which you placed, minus the £50.00 in-play bet & also minus the £20.00 placed on the Stoke WIN = PROFIT MADE: £60.00

    3) If Stoke City WIN you will receive £76.00 minus the £20.00 which you placed on the Stoke WIN, your in-play bet of £50.00 is refunded & you finally minus the pre-bet which you placed on the Man Utd WIN – = PROFIT MADE: £6.00

    You may wish to wait until the price on a Stoke City win improves as I feel you will get more value come kick off, however up to yourself.

    Also – Please make sure that you place your in-play bet only once game has kicked off and you must come right out of all markets and then go back into the DRAW option again when placing your bet. This avoids any delays when your in-play bet is refunded if needs to be.

    Many may feel that they would rather go for BIG MONEY – However others would like a guaranteed profit. Either way it’s your own choice. Me myself, I will be going for guaranteed PROFIT J I can’t see a Stoke City WIN however stranger things have happened in football so just be mindful of this. Good luck all – I hope this helps :-)

    WISHING YOU ALL A HAPPY NEW YEAR !!!! Let’s have a BOOOOOOOOMINGGGG time :-) :-) :-)

    Will re-post again tommorow just incase anybody misses out. Good luck ***

  33. Kev_Tranmere 3 years ago

    Ive gone £50 on United Evens for £50 profit, then gonna do the inplay £50 on the draw for £75+ profit. Stoke wont get anything im sure of that so don’t waste ya time/money covering them. 😉

  34. Scuzzle 3 years ago

    Stoke to score first pre match, Man Utd to win 2-1 in play

  35. Dave G 3 years ago

    Harpreet, agree again with your guaranteed profit system. Its not for me at this stage as i have been lucky enough to hit this bet big twice and prefer to go for a big gamble
    Id rather go for 50 on pre game over 0.5 goals for 3.12 return and once a goal is scored bang the no risk 50 on anytime goalscorer
    If united score first and stoke are giving them a set to in the second half id look to get on Charlie Adams anytime goalscorer (after 50 mins should be about 12/16-1)as he will be feeding off crouch knockdowns and taking all free kicks and penos (if rafael plays there is a good chance of one) just hope i can hold off putting the in play bet on until 60 mins ish for max profit
    If its united chasing the game di maria/mata anytime would be better odds than rooney rvp
    Dont forget if its 0-0 after 60mins to abort mission and hit NO GOALSCORER for hopefully 2/3-1 and pray for no goal or an own goal! As both bets would win in that scenario Lol
    Good luck to everyone and Happy New Year from Atlanta Georgia :)

    Mr F, sorry someone drunk I guess. Does not add up clearly:

    Also we have 5x£50 free bets to give away in a contest linked to the promo.
    To have a chance of winning one of the £10 free bets

  41. Steve W 3 years ago

    Can someone let me know if i am doing the sums right here for a completely risk free bet.

    £50 pre-match on OVER 0.5 GOALS: 2/5
    Returns: £70 Profit: £20

    £50 in-play on UNDER 0.5 GOALS: 7/4
    Returns: £137.50 Profit £87.50
    Minus the £50 pre-match loss, profit: £37.50

    So either way, a profit of £20 or £37.50 depending on the outcome.

    Can someone confirm i’m right? or is there a loop hole someone that i’m missing?

  45. Evo21up 3 years ago

    Harpreet, to guarantee profit of over £40 is it not best to go both teams to score yes prior to kick off and as soon as game kicks off both to score NO. Current odds 5/6 for both on bet365, guarantees over £40 profit.

    • MiniDuffman 3 years ago

      Evo, if the inplay bet wins you would win around £42 pound from that bet, but lose £50 from the pre-match bet so you would actually be £8 down.
