Sports Arbitrage Trading – A Practical Minicourse – Part One

The gaming industry is one of the largest, and fastest growing, industries in the world. Its growth has mushroomed in the past decade thanks to the internet. For the most part, it remains true that in the long-run, the house always wins. However, for some time now, a few individuals have been taking advantage of little-known anomalies in the global sports-betting markets in order to make guaranteed, risk-free profits at the expense of the bookmakers.

These individuals are sports-arbitrage traders

It takes the average trainee sports-arbitrage trader 4-6 weeks to become proficient. This initial training period is almost entirely hands-on although stakes should be kept at a nominal level so as to minimise the impact of ‘rookie’ mistakes. The tools provided by Sports Arbitrage World will assist you at every stage of your project – from setting up your bookmaker accounts at the beginning to making your trading processes as efficient as possible when you become active.

To begin with, however, you should allow yourself 20-30 minutes to read through this short series of lessons which will provide you with:

  1. - a full understanding of the opportunity
  2. - a full understanding of the structure of a sports-arbitrage trade
  3. - a full understanding of the requirements for success
  4. - a plan to enable ultra-efficient preparation prior to starting your project
  5. - an overview of how to find your own risk-free bets
  6. - advice on how to take your trading to the professional level

The Opportunity

Sports-arbitrage involves betting on all possible outcomes of a sporting event, using the best prices offered by competing bookmakers. The result for the trader is a guaranteed profit independent of the result of the sporting event. A competent sports-arbitrage trader can easily make more than £2,500 per month trading on a part-time basis. With adequate capital, however, a full-time trader can expect to earn 4 or 5 times this amount consistently.


Using sports arbitrage, you can make money at home using your computer at your convenience. You will remain independent and in control of every aspect of your project. This activity is completely legal wherever online betting is legal, it’s tried, tested and proven to work consistently and it doesn’t involve recruiting or selling. Moreover, in many parts of the world the profits you make are tax-free.

As a work-from-home project, sports-arbitrage stands out because it is risk-free to investigate and try and the profits you make correlate directly to the amount of time & effort you put into your project without reliance upon anyone else.

  • you can learn most of what you need to for free
  • you can open the necessary bookmaker accounts for free
  • you can receive live arbitrage trades to your desktop for free

In so doing, you may fully investigate the opportunity without any risk and if you decide to trade during this initial period you should also end with a profit irrespective of whether you decide to continue beyond the trial. Additionally, as you start your trading project, you will receive a significant number of free bets and/or deposit bonuses from the bookmakers you join. When combined with arbitrage trading techniques, these bonuses can easily be liberated as pure profit and will contribute to your overall trading capital. On average, you can expect to make around £2,500 this way – how many other work-from-home opportunities actually pay you to see if they suit you?

The main restriction faced by a new sports-arbitrage trader is the amount of trading capital required. On average, an active trader can expect to make a monthly profit equal to about 10% of his or her capital. Thus, in order to make the types of profits mentioned at the start of this chapter, you will require a trading-capital base of at least £25,000.

However, if you have less than this, you can still take advantage of the opportunity but your progress will be a little slower. If you are able to leave your profits to accumulate, then you will find your trading capital increasing rapidly month-to-month as you take advantage of the power of compounding. As a guide, most novice traders start with about £5,000 capital.
