Some people have been leaving comments and asking whether sports arbitrage still works. Some are probably cautious to try it for the first time since there is little public info available on it – well except for the couple of forums.
Well guess what – it works perfectly well, and no one’s talking about it because they are busy making money. There are not more than just a couple of thousand high-rolling arbers in the world, and you can join them if you use the right tools and follow the rules below.
Some things are valid about arbitrage betting, call them rules if you want – sticking to these rules will help you make money with sure bets:
- There is still risk, so don’t place all eggs into one basket.
By “eggs” we mean money and bets and by “baskets” – bookmakers. Some hate arbers, some are OK with them. Do not risk with all your winnings and deposits, diversify and don’t keep large sums of money in your accounts.
- Try to stay low with the bookies
Not all bookmakers are against arbing – most of them don’t care at all. However, just to stay under the radar round up the bet numbers your surebet calculator gives you – e.g. don’t place exact bets of $3731 and the like – place natural-looking bets of $3800 or $3740 at least.
- Stay attentive and consistent.
This is not gambling so do not act emotional, be impulsive or think about testing your luck in any way. Do whatever your surebet finder suggests and stay away from doubtful or suspicious bets.
- Be careful with highly-profitable surebets
This relates to the first rule in a way. Any large imbalances that would bring you 15-20% profit might get corrected by the bookers. Grinding on the 5-7% profit surebets that e.g. a Surebet.com subscription will give you is a lot safer and brings good ROI.
