Cardiff host Aston Villa in the Premier League at Cardiff City Stadium on Tuesday and Freebets.com look at the pick of money back offers available on the televised match.
Cardiff got their first league win under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer against Norwich two games back, but will want to forget the South Wales Derby which they lost 3-0 to Swansea on Saturday. The Bluebirds are three points from safety and in real danger of going straight back into the Championship, so need to make the most of back-to-back home games, starting with Aston Villa.
The Villans also had a game to forget on Saturday when a Kevin Nolan brace gave West Ham a 0-2 win at Villa Park. Aston Villa are twelfth in the table, four points above the drop-zone and defeat in this match will have them looking nervously over their shoulders.
We’ve taken a look at what’s on offer at leading online bookmakers and give you an evaluation of the best money back offers on the Cardiff v Aston Villa match. There’s a diversity of offers and ultimately the best money back offer will depend on which market you intend to play. We have broken down the offer details to help you make a smart choice on where to place your bet.
Betfred 1-A-Piece; refund losing stakes on Correct Score bets if match ends 1-1. Free bet refund up to £50 max.
VERDICT: 1-1 is the most common draw result and is more likely than 0-0. It’s the most fancied result for this particular game at general odds of 11/2 with most firms and rates as the best offer for Correct Score markets. Go to Betfred, new customers receive up to £25 free bet
Winner Money Back If Team Wins From Losing Position: refund losing First Goalscorer, Last Goalscorer and Correct Score bets if a team is losing during the match, but goes on to win. Free bet refund up to £25 max.
VERDICT: A team coming back to win a game is more likely than a 0-0 draw and neither of these sides will be giving up easily with Premier League survival at stake. Betfred just edges this offer for Correct Score bets, but Winner come out on top for First Goalscorer and Last Goalscorer markets. Go to Winner, new customers receive up to £50 free bet.
William Hill Goalscorer Second Chance; refund losing stakes on First Goalscorer bets if selection scores second. Free bet refund up to £50.
VERDICT: This is an attractive consolation offer if you fancy a few goals in the game but only the first few players in the First Goalscorer market are worth backing using this promotion. This is a good offer for selections with odds of 6/1 or shorter, but Winner is preferred for First Goalscorer bets in general. Go to William Hill, new customers receive up to £25 free bet
bet365 Bore Draw; refund losing stakes on First Goalscorer, Last Goalscorer, Anytime Goalscorer, Correct Score, Scorecast and Half-Time/Full-Time bets if the match ends 0-0. Full cash refund.
VERDICT: With general odds of around 9/1 on a 0-0 occurring with most bookmakers, there appears to be an outside chance of this match being a bore-draw. It offers a degree of insurance and the big pluses are there’s no limit on stakes and refunds are cash so can be withdrawn straight back to your bank account. This offer is on a par with Stan James on Scorecast bets and is best for punters playing the Half-Time/Full-Time market. Go to bet365, new customers get up to £200 free bets.
Stan James Bore Draw Money Back Special: refund losing First Goalscorer, Last Goalscorer, First/Last Goalscorer Scorecasts and To Score a Hat-Trick bets if the final score is 0-0. Full cash refund.

Go to Stan James, new customers receive a £10 free bet.

888Sport 88th Minute Special: refund on To Win (90 minutes), Last Goalscorer and Correct Score bets if a goal scored from the 88th minute until the end of normal time results in a losing bet.
VERDICT: This refund trigger is a bit of a long shot, but is the only offer to cater for Match Odds bettors so is best if you intend to play that market. Last Goalscorer and Correct Score punters should look to Winner or Betfred for the best chance of getting money back on their losing bets. Go to 888Sport, new customers receive up to £88 in free bets.
William Hill Bore Draw; refund losing stakes on Correct Score and Double Results bets if match ends 0-0. Free bet refund up to £50 max.

Go to William Hill, new customers receive up to £25 free bet
Betway Premier League Bore Draw Mobile Offer: refund mobile bets on Correct Score, First Goalscorer, Last Goalscorer, Half Time/Full Time markets. Free bet refund up to £25 max.
