I'm new to Soccer odds.

One site I use lists the best odds available on each side and the draw. How can I tell at a glance if there is an arb opportunity? I suppose it is obvious to long time soccer punters, but not me.

If I see 129 x 229 x 237, I don't know whether there is an arb potential there or not.

Is it as easy as a two way? Obviously, a Fav of -200 and Dog of +210 is an arb.

Is there a formula for determining a good arb just by looking at the three way odds?

Is there some calculation you can quickly do?

Thanks and sorry for my blind spot on this.

I've been inputting the numbers into an online three way calculator, but wondered if there was a mental shortcut.

Thanks! After awhile, can you do that in your head real fast, or pretty much tell at a glance?

Not easy for a three way arb. Quite easy for a two way.
