Beat up the Bookies

The AFL Finals are upon us and Spring Racing is in full flight. There are a number of promotions on offer in what looks to now be a very competitive promotions market in Australia.

After all the controversy surrounding the AFL home and away season, we have what is perhaps the most open finals in recent memory. All for matches could genuinely go either way this week, so it is good to take advantages of some of the promotions out there to try and find a winner.

With the new addition of Ladbrokes to the fray, we now have two companies who are offering refunds on head to head bets if your team gets within X number of points. So, as long as you only take one side of the equation at each bookmaker, you can set yourself up for a decent win with minimal risk.

The two bookmakers to use for this are Ladbrokes and Sportsbet. If you haven’t signed up to Ladbrokes, you can receive a deposit bonus match up to $250, which you could roll through some of using the following idea if you are that way inclined. It is also good to know that you can split your freebet into 1, 2, 3 or 4 bets! Important to note the T&Cs say SA + Vic won’t get the freebet, but from feedback on twitter, they are honouring the freebet regardless. Sportsbet also offer a $150 sign-up bonus. At Ladbrokes, if your h2h bet loses by less than 20 points (max $50 – desktop website only), you get your money back. At Sportsbet, if your h2h loses by less than 18 points, you get your money back (max $100). That is a 38 point middle you can hit there. It may not be a big profit, but money is money!

Just to walk you through the below. The first example of Hawks vs Swans… there are four results that can happen. +$57, +84.20, $0 or -$8.80. To achieve this, you are following the bets under “Bookie 1” and “Bookie 2” and the potential results are listed beside it.




The Profits

The Profits was first created in 2010 as a hub for owners Drew and Euan to share their knowledge. Since then, our team has expanded over the years, and we now have eight individual writers now employed to share their knowledge on specific sports. “Surround yourself with the dreamers and the doers, the believers and thinkers, but most of all, surround yourself with those who see the greatness within you, even when you don’t see it yourself.”
