IT’S back! Bet365 are doing their popular £50 risk-free inplay bet offer for Sunday’s Premier League clash of the titans between Man City and Chelsea.

If you place a pre-match bet on the game – up to £50 – which kicks off at 4pm then Bet365 will give you a risk-free inplay bet to the same stake.

To qualify for your risk-free inplay Bet365 bet, simply place a bet of up to £50 before kick-off. Then once the game starts place another bet – of the same stake – on any inplay 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 pre-match bet and take a chance on the inplay – or do bets that guarantee profit. It’s up to you – but make sure you check the rules before having a bet.

Also, please note the £50 refund is in the form of cash after the match, it does not appear as a free bet inplay. If you are doing the offer and using the max stake of £50, you will need to place bets totalling £100 – that’s £50 pre-match and £50 inplay. If the inplay bet loses it will then be refunded a couple of hours after full-time.

My preference is to place a £50 pre-match bet on over 0.5 match goals at odds of around 1-16. I also cover the 0-0 draw with a bet of around £5 at 10-1 at another bookie. When doing this, bet on the ‘no scorer’ market rather than a 0-0 draw so you get paid if the only goal is an OG.

So for a maximum total spend of around £2 you are then covered to use your risk-free £50 inplay bet to try to win big, eg on a first or anytime scorer or correct score.

There are lots of other strategies so share yours here and full T & C’s can be found by simply clicking the banner at the top of this page.

    Nice to see this offer back,

    The system Mr F has explained above is the best way to use this free bet, for the sake of £2 try and win big in play, it is possible to place bets to guarantee a profit, but you will only ever make a very small profit, use the system explained by Mr F then try win big in-play.

      The above advice is “in theory” – Fine! Downside though could be that B365 take exception & close the account under “breach of promotions” – consider that!

    I love betting
    What bet are u considering bettin wae this offer?? Cheers

  3. ILoveBetting 1 year ago

    Gary, not sure yet will decide nearer the time but the last time i used this my bets were:


    Over 0.5goals
    No scorer (different bookies)


    Barca over 2.5 Team goals £50

    Made £150 profit all in.

  4. ILoveBetting 1 year ago


    How can they close the account, bet365 will only see a prematch bet of over 0.5 goals, and then a completely different in play bet, no breach there.

  5. Michael C 1 year ago

    I go for the guaranteed profit method.

    For this one I’ve done the following:

    £50 pre match on Man City with 365 returns £105
    £30 pre match with 888 on Chelsea returns £114
    £50 inplay on the draw returns £175

    City win: £130 stake returns £155 (£105 plus the losing £50 inplay bet) so £25 profit
    Draw: £130 stake returns £175 so £45 profit
    Chelsea win: £130 stake returns £164 (£114 plus the losing £50 inplay bet) so £34 profit

  6. robbie d 1 year ago

    Will be the correct score for me. Either 1-1 or 0-0.

  7. darran 1 year ago

    Under 0.5 first half goals @2-5
    Inplay over 0.5 first half goals @ 7-4

  8. Harpreet 1 year ago

    Darran – your methods looks nice and simple – Easy profit

  9. John smith 1 year ago

    Darren and Harpreet, isn’t that the method that bet365 are most likely to take exception to? Would it not be safer to go with Michael C’s method?

  10. El Rudd 1 year ago

    50 on

  11. El Rudd 1 year ago

    £50 pre match qualifying bet on City or Chelsea double chance. Around £65 return. £15 profit.

    £50 inplay free bet on the draw. Around £175 return. £75 profit.

    I used to be wary with the whole t + c’s but everyone I know gets away with it 😉

  12. Harpreet 1 year ago

    John Smith – bet365 always turn a blind eye to there terms & conditions

  13. king razvan 1 year ago

    heres what ill be doing

    Place £50 CITY PRE MATCH = 105 – 50 – 20 = (£35 PROFIT)
    Place £50 DRAW IN PLAY = 175 – 50 – 50 – 20 = (£55 PROFIT **)
    Place £20 on Chelsea WIN at Paddy Power = 75 – 50 – 20 (£5 PROFIT)

    ** Place the two £5 free paddy bets on draw & first goalscorer/correct score for a little fun

  14. Martin k 1 year ago

    If that’s the case Harpeet I’ll go pre match over 0.5g and inplay the draw pays 5/2 so can’t lose.

  15. Steg 1 year ago

    I am going with pre match Over 1.5 goals – £66 return which gives£16 profit

    In play Under 1.5 goals – £162 which gives £62 profit

  16. 02ba 1 year ago

    I love it when they do this. I try to get my £50 back and back something worth backing that I think could come in. Today il be looking at £50 inplay on city -1 or city race to 7 corners

  17. AndyC 1 year ago

    Does it definitely work doing:
    pre match double chance either team to win then draw in play?

  18. Danny 1 year ago

    £50 pre match over 2.5 = £50 profit
    £50 on Chelsea win if ya bet might as well try making it good eh

  19. Alan 1 year ago

    I find the simplest way to do it is 50 on man city or Chelsea 3/10 then when it kicks off 50 on the draw 5/2 , 15 profit either team wins 125 profit if it’s a draw. And I’ve never had an issue with them not paying I’ve done it that way every time they’ve done the offer.

  20. AceJoe90 1 year ago

    If you place no goalscorer at the same bookie,ie bet365 then you are not guaranteed a may lose 2 quid or so, meaning zero breach of t&c’s. Just for those that are paranoid:)

  21. Cookie Monster 1 year ago

    Alan. I make it £75 profit for a draw

  22. Dfluffmeister 1 year ago

    Will they let you do a score draw in play?

  23. Recoba 1 year ago

    Mr F Bet365 ain’t offering 0.5 total match goals before kick off.
    Same as last time as there onto it.
    Lowest is now 1.0/1.5. That I can see anyway

  24. Recoba 1 year ago

    Over 9.0 Corners in the game is 4/9 which i think is pretty safe…although over 11 is 23/20 which i fancy.

    IN-PLAT…first goal method P.K @11/1

    Done it 3/4 times last year and when it finally happened on 5th attempt i went and took F.K @16/1 and Ronaldo got a P.K in 6mins. 😐
    Was touch scunnered to say the least

    Mr F can you see the 0.5 total match goals?

  25. Alan 1 year ago

    50 quid on at 5/2 returns 175 minus 50 quid stake 125 profit Cookie Monster

  26. Recoba 1 year ago

    Cheers Scott Allot!

    Apologies Mr F should of known you had it or wouldn’t have wrote about it 😉
    Should of known GOALS market too 😐

  27. T84 1 year ago

    Terry anytime goalscorer 10/1

  28. Daz1874 1 year ago

    With the under 0.5 FH goals pre match and doing over 0.5 FH goals in play if that one wins don’t they just pay out on the in play winning bet. If I’m getting this right you would actually lose your first £50 and only win in the in play bet around £18 . In summary you win £68 including your stake but have bet £100

  29. Cookie Monster 1 year ago

    Alan. You are forgetting pre match £50 bet which would need to lose for the draw to come in. £175 return to £100 stake is £75 profit

  30. John smith 1 year ago

    Mr F help! I put £50 on U1.5 fhgs pre match and as soon as match kicked off i tried to put O1.5fhgs on but it disappeared! I ended up putting on O1.5 alternative goal line, thats the same isn’t it?

  31. AceJoe90 1 year ago

    I’ve gone Toure first goalscorer at 17/2 with the free £50. Fingers crossed

  32. Alves 1 year ago


  33. Recoba 1 year ago

    Corner before 8.00 minutes 5/6.. £50
    :) (squeaked it)

    In-play £50 first goal P.K 10/1

    Cmon the ref!
