The Importance of Watching Arbs Before Jumping In

Learning the process of sure betting (also known as arbitrage betting) is key when wanting to be successful with the bookies. If you lack the knowledge and begin to engage in sure betting, you will run the risk of losing money on your bets. It helps to have a passion for some sports as you will already have some knowledge of these sports and this will allow you to transition into arbitrage betting much easier.

Conduct a Test Run

If interested in arbitrage betting, you should sign up for a free service. Betslayer provides a useful 7 day free trial. You will gain access to some of the sure bets available. Use this free 7 day free trial to conduct test bets. This is where you use the sure bet information from BetSlayer and go to the bookmakers’ website to test arbitrage betting. You should fill out the betslip at all the bookies in the arb. But, don’t actually place the bet. After spending an hour a day over 2-3 days, you will get the hang of which bookies have the most accurate lines or how quickly you could place a sure bet.
If you find out that you are good at arbitrage betting then you should upgrade to a paid version to get access to all of the arbitrage betting opportunities. If you are not so good then it is no risk as you haven’t spent any money and you can spend more time honing your sure betting skills. To find out more about this process check out our blog at BetSlayer on ‘What is Arbitrage Betting?’.

Scope Out the Bookies

When engaging in arbitrage betting it is also important to scope out the best bookies which you can use to make money. Some Bookies are much more lenient than others with constant arbs so you should research which Bookies are right for you. You could perhaps test your limit with certain bookies to see where you can take sure betting to, if they try and cap you or block your account then you should not be using them regularly. Some bookies will also tend to be much more alert than others, this may, however, not be a negative as this shows that this bookie is established and professional so you won’t have to worry about any security problems.

Take Advantage of Sign up Offers

When you are first signing up to a bookies site you will almost always receive a signup offer which could either be increased odds or a bonus on your first deposit. Some bookmakers even will give you a £10 free bet given to you. This way you are not using your own money and so there is much less of a risk. Alongside the increased odds it gives you a great opportunity to partake in arbitrage betting, without having to put as much money in as you would normally. You should try and exploit as many sign up offers as you can. Taking advantage of sign up offers just helps increase your return fromsure betting . Plus, if you make a mistake or two, the sign up bonus provides a nice cushion.
