Cross Market Arb

Cross market arbs are a mix of two or more different markets. There are many possible combinations which can result in an arbitrage. The examples below illustrate two basic combinations and how to calculate the results.

Example 1

A regular threeway (1X2) arbitrage, but replacing the bet on the home team with a simple asian handicap bet.

Bet on Bookmaker Bet type
Team1 Bookie1 AH1(0)
Draw Bookie2 X
Team2 Bookie3 2

 

Outcomes

Team1 win: You will win your bet at Bookie1.
A draw: You will get your stake refunded at Bookie1 and win your draw-bet at Bookie2.
Team2 win: You will win your bet at Bookie3.

 
 

Example 2

A regular threeway (1X2) arbitrage, replacing the bet on the home team with a quarter asian handicap bet.

Bet on Bookmaker Bet type
Team1 Bookie1 AH1(-0.25)
Draw Bookie2 X
Team2 Bookie3 2

 

Outcomes

Team1 win: You will win your bet at Bookie1.
A draw: You will win your draw-bet at Bookie2. Also you will get half your stake at Bookie1 refunded (Since AH1(-0.25) implies that you bet one half of your stake on AH1(0) and the other half on AH1(-0.5))
Team2 win: You will win your bet at Bookie3.
