What is arbitrage betting?
This is a technique used by gamblers who bet on all possible outcomes. It's mostly used for sporting events where there are only two potential results, for example a tennis match where one of two players must win.
Where have you heard about arbitrage betting?
It's becoming increasingly common with the growth of internet gambling and online software which makes the calculations possible. But, bookmakers don't welcome arbitrage betters and will often try to close or restrict these customers' accounts.
What you need to know about arbitrage betting.
It's a mathematical process, and gamblers who use it don't need to have any interest in the sport they're betting on. In theory, arbitrage betting should guarantee a profit, but in reality you have to place large bets to gain any profit or avoid a loss. This is because bookmakers may cancel the bet, or the stakes may be too limited, and betting websites may be unreliable. Arbitrage betters are also vulnerable to hackers and scammers, who may use high percentage arbitrages to trick them into providing security information.
