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 22nd November 2017 is shown below:

Real Life Example Arb:

Danish Counter-Strike Blast Pro Series eSports Match

Astralis » 2.625 (Bet365) » £400.00 returns £1,050.00
SK Gaming » 1.75 (Unibet) » £600.00 returns £1,050.00

Total arb / surebet profit : 5.000%

A correctly staked investment of £1,000 guarantees a return of £1,050.00 no matter the outcome. That's £50.00 profit due to discrepancies in the bookmakers' odds, guaranteeing a 5.000% profit on your investment in less than 48 hours!

The above information tells us that a betting market exists on the Danish Counter-Strike Blast Pro Series eSports Match between Astralis and SK Gaming. It also tells us that Bet365 have odds of 2.625 for Astralis, and that Unibet have odds of 1.75 for SK Gaming.

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 5.000% 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. £400.00 invested on Astralis returns £1,050.00, and £600.00 invested on SK Gaming returns £1,050.00.

£400.00 x 2.625 = £1,050.00
£600.00 x 1.75 = £1,050.00

Risk free profit = £50.00
