Hi Guys!

Have searched for this but can't find a formula that I can use/understand. Can one of you kind people please help me?

I just need to know how to calculate the stake size!

Home win  H 1.7
Draw         D  4.2
Away win   A  6

So I did (1/H)+(1/D)+(1/A) and got 0.98 (rounded). Which means I have at least a 2% arb, right? Question is how do I calculate the stake sizes?!

Thanks!

This is actually a 0,7% arb.

You would take your stake, mutiply it by the arb % (so x 1,007) and then devide this by the odds.

In this case let's say stake 100 x 1,007 = 100,7 /1.7 = 59,24stake for the home win

The draw would be 100,07/4,2= 23,98 stake

The away win 16.78.
