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 20th April 2019 is shown below:

Real Life Example Arb:

Greek A2 Basketball Match (Money Line)

Pefkohori » 2.50 (Titan Bet) » £42.79 returns £106.98
AS Karditsas » 1.87 (BetVictor) » £57.21 returns £106.98

Total arb / surebet profit : 6.979%

A correctly staked investment of £100 guarantees a return of £106.98 no matter the outcome. That's £6.98 profit due to discrepancies in the bookmakers' odds, guaranteeing a 6.979% profit on your investment in under 24 hours!

The above information tells us that a betting market exists on the Greek A2 Basketball Match (Money Line) between Pefkohori and AS Karditsas. It also tells us that Titan Bet have odds of 2.50 for Pefkohori, and that BetVictor have odds of 1.87 for AS Karditsas.

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 6.979% 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. £42.79 invested on Pefkohori returns £106.98, and £57.21 invested on AS Karditsas returns £106.98.

£42.79 x 2.50 = £106.98
£57.21 x 1.87 = £106.98

Risk free profit = £6.98
