Bet of the Day – Monday, 1st of July 2024

Monday, 1st of July

There are two matches on today for Euro 2024 and as always, you can bet on either of the matches to get your free bets and also to turn free bets into money.

I recommend the France match below for the qualifying bet and the Portugal match for your free bet(s) if you have any to turn into money.

Important to note here is that even though we are at the knockout stage and one team will win and go through to the next round, from a betting point of view, they can still draw in the first 90 minutes of the match, which is the market that we are betting on. You will generally automatically bet on the correct market but just make sure that there is the option to bet on the draw when you place your bet because this is the market that we want to bet on where there are 3 possible outcomes (Win, lose, draw market aka 1 x 2). If you unsure, you can check with the online bookmaker.

Money Bet
Sport: Football -> Euro 2024
Who’s playing: France vs Belgium
Date: Monday July 1
Time: 5pm UK time

Outcome: Draw* (You might be able to bet on France if the odds are above what you need for your qualifying bet)

Back Bet: Bet on the Draw at the bookmaker (Bet with the bookmaker that your day # challenge says to bet with).

Lay Bet: Lay the Draw at the Bet Exchange on France vs Belgium

Decimal odds at the bet exchange will be about 3.25 (Give or take a bit either way, Ie. it might be a bit higher or lower than this) and remember that the bookmaker odds will nearly always be lower than your lay odds at the bet exchange.

* Keep an eye on the odds for France in case they are high enough for you to place your qualifying bet on and lay it (Only if you feel comfortable in doing so at this stage).

For both the money bet and free bet – Use the Betting Calculator to determine the amount that you need to Lay to return the exact same amount. Go back to your training in the Getting Started lesson if you need to go over this again.

Free Bet
Your free bet should have arrived from yesterday’s money bet (If you did one) with a bit of luck, so you can now place that free bet and make some money! Note that if it hasn’t arrived in your account after your money bet has been “Settled” (Ie. the event taking place), then give it several hours or so before contacting the bookmakers’ live chat and asking where your free bet is. This can happen sometimes, so just be aware.

Sport: Football -> Euro 2024
Who’s playing: Portugal vs Slovenia
Date: Monday July 1
Time: 8pm UK time

Outcome: Draw

Back Bet: Bet on the Draw at the bookmaker (Bet with the bookmaker that your day # challenge says to bet with).

Lay Bet: Lay the Draw at the Bet Exchange on Portugal vs Slovenia

By all means, you can bet on any match/event/outcome as soon as you feel comfortable in doing so. We are just using events to turn our free bets into money… Just remember that the higher and tighter the back and lay odds, the higher the profits are from your free bets (But you need more money in your bet exchange account to cover that higher liability).

The bookmaker you use will depend on which day # you are currently doing. We recommend doing 1 day, per day. Ie. 1 money bet and 1 free bet maximum per day, until you are comfortable with doing more. Go back to the “Let’s go” lesson if you need to remind yourself of how this all works and see full details in the “Getting Started” lesson.
