This may seem silly, but I've found a few cross market arbs and a few same market arbs on betfair (both sides)

I wanted to know if anyone has back and layed the same match on betfair. Since they are an exchange and make money from the winning bet no matter what, is this a problem? Do they kick you out for this?

Thanks guys.

It's called trading and betfair allows it and even loves it.  Thousands of people do this on a daily basis (they try and predict the line movement to make money). 

Google "lay the draw", it's one of the most common tactics of in-game sports trading.

finding arbs in betfair is extremely hard. check first if everything correct, profit, commission included etc. except if you trade as Alpha mentioned. then its a different story.
some guys are charismatic in trading. if you practice it enough you may be one of them

betfair arbs usually only last a few seconds from what I've seen.
I think we're versing arbers with sophisticated bots.

I don't think Cross Matching is possible on Betfair since they have an algorithm to prevent that. Cross Market Cross Matching might be possible but I know they also have an algorithm for that
