I have just done an odds monkey offer to qualify for a power up with Paddy Power. All fine, but when I put the stats into the calculator to work out much to lay it always says underneath that there is a loss , ie overall profit -1.24 or similar, As the idea is to make money, what is the secret please. Thanks

A power up is just an odds boost isn't it?
So you would just back and lay normally as per the calculator. Maybe the boost wasn't enough to make a profit.

Ok, at least I know I've done it right. Will carry on trying to some suitable odds. Thanks

Did you have to do a £10 bet to qualify for a Power Up??? For example place a £10 on the 1.50 at wherever & receive a power up

In which case you do as @homie says above & then you need to place a further bet where you will have an option to boost your odds in the betslip. They normally say to allow 2 hours for the power up to be added to your account.

I've found that Paddy's odds are pretty naff so you will struggle to make a profit for the two sets of back/lay bets you end up doing, even with an odds boost!
