Lead and Lose strategy

a). Choose a close odds selection

Open Bruce Betting and the exchange and find a close odds match on the Match Odds (1×2) market.

Remember you are looking for an English Premier League or Spanish La Liga match.

b). Backing and laying

Place £5 to £20 bet on a team to win the match at Bruce Betting.

For example, on 3rd January 2019: Bet £20 on Man City at Evens (2.0) to beat Liverpool.

Then, place a £19.50 lay bet on Man City (odds of 2.0) at Smarkets. Your qualifying loss is £0.50.

If your team is winning the match at any time but loses, get a refund as a free bet (for £5 to £20 stake per match).


  • Free bet expires in 7 days
  • Only take close odds matches. It is not worth “chasing” free bets by taking poor odds.
  • Combine Lead and Lose with Bruce Betting’s weekly free bet offer. Simply place 10 x £10 at Evens (2.0) to get a £10 free bet each week.

Bruce Betting Lead and Lose is a useful matched betting offer. A simple back and lay strategy could yield some free bets.
