Football Power Price – Paddy Power

There’s a big Sunday of FA Cup football to look forward to and you don’t want to miss this Paddy Power price boost! They’re offering enhanced odds of 7/2 (was 6/4) on there to be 2 or more goals in each 1:30pm FA Cup match on Sunday. Translated into matched betting terms, this gives us a risk-free potential profit of £4.69 and here’s how…

Power Price boost

The maximum stake for this power price boost is £20.00.

For a walkthrough of how to lay price boosts, please see my price boosts guide.

We can lay our bet at Matchbook as they have this price boost listed in their Enhanced Specials section.

We can calculate our underlay stake using my Matched Betting Calculator. We just need to open up the ‘ADVANCED’ section and click the ‘Underlay’ tab…

As you can see, the calculator tells us that our lay stake should be £20.41…

Place £20.00 on ‘2 or more goals in each 1:30pm English FA Cup match (normal time only)’ @ 4.50 = Potential profit of £70.00

Lay £20.41 on ‘Over 1.5 Goals In Each 1:30pm Sunday FA Cup Match’ @ 4.20 = Potential liability of £65.31


Let’s have a look at our profit/loss for the two potential outcomes…

Outcome Paddy Power Matchbook Profit/Loss
Bet wins + £70.00 – £65.31 £4.69 profit
Bet loses – £20.00 + £20.00 £0.00

So, if our bet loses, we’ll break even and there’s no harm done. However, if our bet wins, we’ll make a nice risk-free profit of £4.69 on this Paddy Power price boost!

Note: If you would prefer to lock in a smaller profit, you can simply use the ‘Standard‘ tab on the calculator for a guaranteed profit of £1.09.
