1600% arb
« on: August 20, 2015, 12:54:20 PM »

I recently spotted an Arb with reported 1600% profit (according to my arb software)

I thought it was way too good to be true, but sure enough it wasn't.

The only downside was the maximum lay at 1.01 was £2 so my stake of 2p on exchange and 10p on bookie was the most I could do!!!!

Still profit is profit!

What's a 1600% arb?
Something like odds 34 on both outcomes? Or 100 and 20? What were the odds at book and exchange?

My best one ever was a cup game: St. patricks vs. St. patricks. Ladbrokes had wrong odds as there were odds 29 on the professional team, a 1,03 favourite. I think I spent like 1 minute not believing it could be true before I decided to back every outcome on the pro team. I managed to get in a few before they closed their lines. I thought for sure they'd void, but no, they payed out. Even with very low limits on the match i managed to win around $1500.

That's incredible.  In my experience with things like that one bookie has almost always voided and claimed the odds were a mistake.  The best I can remember for me that actually held up was a tennis match where 365 had match odds of something like 1.73 and 2.2, and Coral had exactly the same odds, but flipped around.
