Can you show me a working example of a sports arbitrage opportunity and how the investment would be staked?


A real sports arbitrage opportunity from 26th May 2017 is shown below:

Real Life Example Arb:

Turkish Super Lig Football Match

Under 3.5 Goals » 1.615384 (Ladbrokes) » £667.98 returns £1,079.04
Over 3.5 Goals » 3.25 (BetVictor) » £332.02 returns £1,079.07

Notes: Fenerbahce vs. Trabzonspor

Total arb / surebet profit : 7.905%

A correctly staked investment of £1,000 guarantees a return of £1,079.04 no matter the outcome. That's £79.04 profit due to discrepancies in the bookmakers' odds, guaranteeing a 7.905% profit on your investment in under 24 hours!

The above information tells us that a betting market exists on the Turkish Super Lig Football Match between Fenerbahce and Trabzonspor. It also tells us that Ladbrokes have odds of 1.615384 for Under 3.5 Goals, and that BetVictor have odds of 3.25 for Over 3.5 Goals.

By applying a simple mathematical formula to those odds, we are able to calculate that we can cover all possible outcomes of the match and make a guaranteed 7.905% return on our investment.

We would invest our money in proportion to the odds on each possibility. The amount to invest on each outcome is calculated using another simple formula. £667.98 invested on Under 3.5 Goals returns £1,079.04, and £332.02 invested on Over 3.5 Goals returns £1,079.07.

£667.98 x 1.615384 = £1,079.04
£332.02 x 3.25 = £1,079.07

Risk free profit = £79.04

"Initially I was quite sceptical when I heard about sports arbitrage - I thought that it sounded too good to be true and there must be a catch or a gamble somewhere!

Thank you Arb Hunters for being honest and taking the time to explain arbitrage betting to me. I've now purchased an arb alerts subscription and made my first risk free profit!"
