Round bets

Wed Sep 18, 2013 11:04 pm

I am sorry for the stupid question but I dont understand how can I place round bet (100,200,300,400) between two soft bookmakers. If I place first bet 100 the second is always 70 or 140, or for 200 for the first the second is always 160 or 230 depend of the odd.Is there any solution that I dont see!

Maybe the 'round bets/stakes'  button can help in this case. It depends on the alert service, some offer such a function.

70 or 40 is good. The important fact is the number ending in 0 or 5. If all your bets are like:

450
340
235

disimulates better than:

366,78
453,62
472,21

This is the idea.

Say you have to bet 256.15 on leg 2 of an arb at a rec. book.

bet 250 with the bookmaker, then back £6.15 on an exchange, you might lose a few pennies in arb profit but nothing major.

If you bet odd amounts they will know you're arbing straight away and your account's marked.

this rounding is needed only in soft bookmakers.. Asian or exchange dont have any problem with this
