RebelBetting Day 27
Saturday was an interesting, frustrating, but in the end, very profitable day. The football arbs were going OK, then on one arb, the bookie restricted the size of the bet. No problem, I thought, because I just lowered the stake on the other bet. By Sunday, I noticed the bookie had returned the stake and not paid out on the bet. I contacted them and they said the bet was voided as the odds offered had been wrong! Grr!
Then in the evening I picked some baseball games. RebelBetting software gave me an arb. The baseball bets often have a stipulated player on each side and one of the bookies just automatically fills in a betting slip without giving you the full details of the bet. So I double checked the betting lines with each bookie to make sure the same players were stipulated. It all looked OK so I placed the bets.
Upon checking I noticed the actual bets were in fact for different payers! It seemed the bookie was offering two lines, each with different players and the RebelBetting software hadn’t spotted this. I couldn’t find any other bookmaker offering the same line so I tried to level off the bets as best I could for a small loss.
When it all shook out the bets were not as marked originally and it paid off with a nice profit. The same troublesome bookmaker then took over 24 hours to settle the bets.
I’ve taken a break from my reviews on Sunday and Monday as it can be pretty intensive.
CM=Cross Market Arb; EU=European handicap; AH=Asian Handicap; Moneyline or 3-Way= 1×2 match odds; 2-Way=Draw No Bet; Middle=Arb where max profit is made if the middle opton (eg Draw) wins.
