Well, I can most certainly tell you how it is possible to statistically lose in the long-term in any given bookie. Just do opposite of arbing basically.
If there is an 1% arb, which tells you to bet on Federer on pinnacle and Djokovic on bet365, then basically bet on Djokovic on pinnacle and on Federer in bet365.
This way you will basically have a negative arb - no matter what happens you will lose that match a given margin. The odds that you hit on the soft bookie ain't gonna be soft and
nobody from 100'000 arbers is gonna hit the line. Or, if you don't wanna arb, then just bet on Federer on bet365 in this case - they will have worse odds than pinnacle.
But I'm not quite sure why would you do this, since the goal is to make money
But I guess if you think you can get away from limitations if you bet some shitty lines, or start losing money, then I guess you could try this.
