There’s another big week of football to look forward to and that means more chances to hit the Bet365 early payout (2UP) offer! Simply place a pre-match Full Time Result bet on selected matches and if our team goes 2 goals ahead, Bet365 will pay out our bet in full, regardless of the final result! Translated into matched betting terms, this gives us a potential profit of £100.00+ and here’s how…

Key Terms:

  • Qualifying bets must be placed on the Full Time Result market.
  • If our selected team goes 2 goals ahead at any stage, Bet365 will pay out our bet in full regardless of the final result.
  • Applies to the following competitions:
    • English Premier League
    • English Championship
    • English League 1
    • English League 2
    • English FA Cup (from First Round onwards)
    • English EFL Cup
    • Scottish Premiership
    • Spanish Primera Liga
    • German Bundesliga I
    • Italian Serie A
    • French Ligue 1
    • UEFA Champions League (from Group Stage onwards)
    • UEFA Europa League (from Group Stage onwards)

Qualifying Bets:

Early payout offers have been incredibly popular for a while now. In addition to this Bet365 version, Betsafe and Paddy Power also run early payout offers…

Bet365 – 2 Goals Ahead Early Payout
Betsafe – Two Goals Up. You Win!
Paddy Power – 2 up – You Win!

I won’t go into the strategy too much here, but you can find a complete walk-through of how they should be done in my Early Payout Offers (2UP) guide.

There’s no limit on how many matches you can place qualifying bets on and it’s entirely up to you which teams you go for. Having looked at the odds available, we could place a qualifying bet on Sevilla to beat Leganes in the Spanish Primera Liga on Tuesday.

At the time of writing, laying our bet at Betfair gives us the smallest qualifying loss.

We can calculate our lay stakes using my Early Payout Calculator…

As you can see, the calculator tells us that our lay stake should be £49.49

Place £50.00 on Sevilla @ 1.95 = Potential profit of £47.50

Lay £49.49 on Sevilla @ 1.99 = Potential liability of £49.00

No Early Payout:

Let’s have a look at our potential profit/loss if there’s no early payout…

Outcome Bookie Exchange Profit/Loss
Sevilla win +£47.50 -£49.00 £1.50 loss
Sevilla don’t win -£50.00 +£48.50 £1.50 loss

So, worst case scenario, we’ll lose £1.50 in qualifying for this offer.

Early Payout!

If Sevilla go two goals up, we need to select the early payout toggle (in the grey section) to tell the calculator that ‘The bookmaker has paid out early‘…

As you can see, our potential profit/loss is as follows, now that Bet365 have paid out early…

Outcome Bookie Exchange Profit/Loss
Sevilla win +£47.50 -£49.00 £1.50 loss
Sevilla don’t win +£47.50 +£48.50 +£96.00 profit

So, if we let things runs and Sevilla go on to win, we’ll still lose £1.50, but if Sevilla draw or lose, we’ll make a profit of £96.00!

Lock in Profit:

If we decide to lock in a profit, we’ll need to enter the back odds for Sevilla to win at Betfair. I’ll use back odds of 1.15 to illustrate how locking in a profit should work…

As you can see, the calculator tells us that we need to stake £85.64 on Sevilla to win at Betfair.

Place £85.64 on Sevilla @ 1.15 = Potential profit of £12.85

Now let’s have a look at our overall potential profit for the possible outcomes…

Outcome Bookie Exchange Profit/Loss
Sevilla win +£47.50 -£36.15 +£11.35 profit
Sevilla don’t win +£47.50 -£36.15 +£11.35 profit

So, regardless of the outcome, we would make a guaranteed profit of £11.35 on this match!

We’ll make a small loss the majority of the time, but when the early payout is triggered, the returns can be very nice indeed. Feel free to place qualifying bets on more than one match, just try and keep your qualifying losses to a minimum.
