The famous French Open started last weekend and to celebrate, Paddy Power are giving a free bet on it should one leg of your sports acca let you down!

We all know the feeling of how annoying it is when its just one leg of your Acca that doesn’t come in. Usually for me its the team at the shortest price who should win by five or six like Real Madrid, who end up losing to bottom of the league!

However, to make up for this Paddy Power have a money-back as a free bet on the French Open, should just one leg let you down. Now we’re not saying this is better than winning than 12/1 accumulator you put £10 on, but every cloud and all that!

There are some T’s and C’s though that go along with this offer. The max free bet you can receive from it each day is £10. So even if you put £20 on an accumulator you will only get a £10 free bet to spend of the French Open. The accumulator applies to all sports and markets, except for horse-racing. This offer only applies to 4+ fold accumulators, each of which must be at a minimum of 1/5 odds. There are other T’s and C’s that apply, so be sure to check Paddy Power. 

The French Open

All the favourites are still in the French Open which makes it exciting for using the free bet on. Tomorrow is the start of only the second round which means there will be lots of matches to bet on. Rafa Nadal is still leading the way as the favourite for the overall tournament priced at 11/8. The 12-time winner is taking on Mackenzie McDonald tomorrow and is 1/500 to win…

The world number one Novak Djokovic is 17/10 to go all the way and win his second French Open. He is playing Mikael Ymer in which Djokovic is 1/250 to win. The odds will get better as the tournament progresses, but for the best value it’s worth looking at the lower-ranked players.
