Creating arb by large bet
« on: February 27, 2016, 05:00:44 PM »

I have a question, it may be stupib but anyway.
How much money you need to bet on one side of market(2 way outcomes market) to drop the odds of that one and create an arb oportunity ??
If you bet one side on pinnacle and make them drop the odds other bookie will follow or not  ?
limits will be a big issue here , but with large group of people it may be possible or i'm wrong.

i believe pinnacles bet limits will prevent people from doing this.
maybe on opening odds, with really low liquidity, you will be able to move the line slightly, but certainly not enough to make an arb opportunity.
anyways, if you gather some friends and try to do this (considering you have huge bankrolls), you will eventually get caught and in big trouble (search for betting syndicates and line moves)

On a high liquidity market it would take million - on a low liquidity market the odds could also move in the opposite direction very quickly
