### How to know if we have a Surebet

Hi,

I read a quickly system to find if two (or three) odds gives us a Surebet. And maybe some users can find interesting.

For a 1X2 match:

10/odds for 1 + 10/odds for X + 10/odds for 2

If the result is < 10. You have a Surebet!

Of course, is a easy calc, here is an example:

Germany U21 - Montenegro U21
Football
BET 1: GERMANY  2.31
BET 2: X 4.3
BET 3: MONTENEGRO 3

10/2.31 + 10/4.3 + 10/3 = 4.33 + 2.325 + 3.33 = 9.985

So is a surebet, a small one because the result is close to 10.

### Re: How to know if we have a Surebet

For 2 way arbs its pretty simple i think:
A*B should be over A+B
For example odds 1.52-3
1.52*3=4.56  and  1.52+3=4.52
or 1.25-5.2
1.52*5.2=6.5  and  1.25+5=6.25

Pescu. This formula is the basic formula for surebets (for independent outcomes). Or am I missing something?
No matter if there are 2 outcomes, 3, 4 or 12 :-)
1/odd(1) + 1/odd(2) + 1/odd(3) + ... + 1/odd(n) < 1 then it's a surebet.
I tried to post an explanation here: http://surebettracker.com/LetsBlog/learning-center/calculating-arbitrages/

How do you calculate arbitrage opportunities on BetsOnFire?

In more complex cases, when there is overlapping, the formula doesn't hold. For example : H1(0) - X - 2.
