Before you get too excited lets take a moment to understandrepparttar 116923 mechanics behind arbitrage – an age old concept that has been used by banks and businesses for centuries. Arbitrage simply is an inconsistency inrepparttar 116924 market – where for example due to global differencesrepparttar 116925 same product or service is charged at different prices in different locations. How is this applied to sports betting? An arbitrage opportunity is formed when different bookies have different prices for different outcomes in a particular sporting event. The bottom line is that we can place bets to cover both (all) outcomes with different bookmakers and get back more than we invested each and every time. It’s important to remember that this is a form of investment and not betting – with arbitrage you know your exact return before a ball is kicked or a stroke played. It’s also important to remember that arbitrage returns are generally low – on average yielding 5% to 10% per play – but for an investment that lasts for a couple of hours, that’s pretty good.

An Example Let’s take a look at a real life example of sports arbitrage. During a ladies single game at Wimbledon between Davenport and Clijstersrepparttar 116926 bookies Tote and Victor Chandler pricedrepparttar 116927 outcomes differently: Tote - 3/1 Clijsters to win Victor Chandler - 2/5 Davenport to win To return £100 with Victor Chandler above we would have to invest £71.42. To return £100 with Tote for a Clijsters win we would have to invest £25. Our total collective investment would be just £96.42 - and whoever wonrepparttar 116928 game our total return would be £100. We have just made a guaranteed 3.58% on your money within 2 hours. You can find plenty of these arbitrage opportunities each and every week. How did we calculate how much investment is required to return £100 (including our stake)? We do a very simple calculation: 1. With V.C.repparttar 116929 odds for a Davenport win was 2/9. To find out how much you need to invest to return £100 simply makerepparttar 116930 following calculation: (a) 2/5 + 1 = 1.4 (b) 100/1.4 = £71.43 2. With Toterepparttar 116931 odds for a Clijsters win was 3/1. To return £100 (including our stake): (a) 3/1 + 1 = 4 (b) 100/4 = £25 Total Investment (£71.43 + £25) = £96.42 Total Return REGARDLESS OF OUTCOME £100 Total Profit (£100 - £96.42) = £3.58 risk free. Do you seerepparttar 116932 beauty of this? No matter who wonrepparttar 116933 game you are guaranteed a certain profit of 3.58% - this is a very good return for an investment lasting just a couple of hours that carries absolutely zero risk. The good news is that arbitrage opportunities like these happen many times on a daily basis, and with a little practice you can find quite a few to invest in as you please.

Why Do Arbitrage Opportunities Occur? Arbitrage opportunities occur when there are differences of opinion on a particular sporting event between two or more bookmakers. Remember that thanks to globalization andrepparttar 116934 internet you can use an online bookmaker who is based anywhere inrepparttar 116935 world. There are many reasons why bookmakers may offer wildly different odds onrepparttar 116936 same sporting event. For a start, many bookmakers overstretch themselves when offering odds – they try and cover every possible market to get as many customers as possible. This is great news for us because in doing so they will sometimes offer odds on events that they have little or no expert knowledge in. For example, a bookmaker inrepparttar 116937 USA may know very little about English Division 2 football games, and yet offer odds on them. In contrast, an English bookmaker will be much more “clued up” as torepparttar 116938 likely outcomes fromrepparttar 116939 same games. The result? Wildly different odds onrepparttar 116940 same games, and a feast of arbitrage opportunities and free money for us. And remember, everyday more and more online bookmakers are enteringrepparttar 116941 highly lucrative online gambling market – this is great news for us becauserepparttar 116942 number of juicy arbitrage opportunities will grow well intorepparttar 116943 future! Also, bookmakers are busy people – and when they are forced to offer odds in pressurized situations they can sometimes make mistakes! Again – leading to a nice stream of easy arbitrage pickings.
