Arbitrage bets: everything you need to know

Arbitrage bet or surebet – arbitrage situations in betting that arise due to bookmakers’ odds difference on opposite outcomes of the event. This situation allows a punter to place bets in such a way that he get guaranteed profit no matter the result.

The reasons of such a situation appear different, but the common are bookmaker mistakes, slow reaction to changing the situation in the match and simple competition for new clients between bookies.

Perhaps, this information did not give you a clear understanding of what arbitrage betting is – therefore, let’s consider a clear example of how the strategy works.

Surebet example

Let’s take for example a Dota 2 Esports match between Outsiders and Talon. As you can see at the screenshot – one bookmaker set 2.57 for TO 30.5 Team 1 kills and the second – 1.87 for TU 30.5 Team 1 kills.

Having such data, we’ll place bets of 84.23\$ on TO 30.5 and 115.77\$ on TU 30.5 (200\$ in total). And now we don’t need to worry about the final result, because we’ll get at least 16.47 of net profit:

2.57*84.23 = 216,47\$  – 200\$ = 16,47\$

1.87*115.77 = 216,49\$ – 200\$ = 16,49\$

Arbs: manual search vs surebet services

As you can see, surebets can surely bring a tangible and stable income. The main question here is how to search for arbitrage situations. Of course, you can search and calculate it on your own, but note that it’s a very hard and time consuming process. That is why punters more often use surebet services.
