Bookmakers do not always present
correct odds. Sometimes the odds presented on a given event can vary very
much with different bookmakers. Some bookmakers fancy the home team,
others fancy the away team, and some even the draw. This is something
punters can take advantage of. By adding the inverse of the odds
offered on H, D and A, we are able to calculate the spread tax of the
The best odds offered on 1/X/2 are
Alpenland's 1.90, Darwin's 3.60 and Darwin's 5.75. When
Alpenland offer 1.90 for the home win, it means that a bet of
1$ gives a 1.90$ return.
As a result, a bet
of 0.53$ gives a 1$ return (
1 / 1.90 = 0.53).
For the draw, a bet of 0.28$ gives a 1$ return (1
/ 3.60 = 0.28)
For the away win, a bet of 0.17 $ gives a 1$ return (1
/ 5.75 = 0.17)
If we add all
these bets (0.53 + 0.28 + 0.17) we get 0.98.
Thus, you need to bet 0.98$ in order to get a 1$ for sure.
If we take the
inverse of 0.98 (1 / 0.98 =1.02) you'll see that for
every 1 $ you bet, you will get 1.02 $ back !!
In other words, a totally risk-free
The calulation is made without
including any taxes or other expenses (like the fees for transferring
money). In order to make use of this kind of betting, you need accounts
with several bookmakers, and a quite a considerable funds available
because even though it's a sure bet, you will lose your stake at two
of the bookies, and win at the third. Thus you may go broke in some of
your accounts, and if you need to deposit money frequently, the transfer
fees will outweigh the small advantage you gain on this type of betting.
Not all bookmakers accept singles either.
