In a 2 option bet (lets say A and B are these two options), when option A is available at 1.84, and option B at 2.36, that gives you a backing book percentage of:

(1.84 + 2.36)/(1.84 x 2.36) x 2^0 = 96.7 %

and we all know what a backing book percentage of less than 100 means ...

if you wish to stand to gain an equal profit from either outcome, we now have the following situation:

options:..............................A........... ..................B

stakes:...............................X........... ..................Y
odds:................................1.84......... ...............2.36
net profit:.................1.84 * X - (X +Y)........2.36 * Y - (Y + X)

2.36/1.84 = 1.28 approx.

in order to have equal profit resting on both outcomes, stake X must be equal to:

X = 1.28 * Y


I'll give you an example to illustrate. If you have 50 units on option B at odds of 2.36, and wish to "make a free bet" by arbing with option A at odds of 1.84, then you must place X units on option A.

X = 2.36/1.84 * 50 = 64.13 units (approx.)

now lets see what we stand to profit:

if option A wins: 64.13 * 1.84 - (64.13 + 50) = 3.87 units (approx.)

if option B wins: 50 * 2.36 - (50 + 64.13) = 3.87 units (approx.)



So to finally answer your question Mr. AYS, if you wish to have an equal profit resting on each outcome, for every unit you have on the option at 2.36, you must have 2.36/1.84 (or approximately 1.28) units on the option at 1.84 . From this, you will make 0.077 units (approx.) per unit that you outlay.


Hope this helps...
Well thanks a lot for the explination my friend, this time i missed the bus but i am totally aware for the next time.
i would do it with 1.90 and 2.45 with favoring sanguinetti a little but too late.

Btw anyone finds tempting No tie-break bet @2.10 in the game featuring Andy Roddick & Daniele Bracciali???

I wouldn't take that one - everyone talks about the 51 aces that Karlovic delivered, but overlook the fact that Bracciali himself served 31 aces

Ah, but neither is Roddick (not as good as the other top seeds, anyway)

Re: Motorola razr V3 - Wimbledon 2nd round thursday !!!

Not a good day today, but i covered my one parlay loss with some betting in running on Popp/Arthurs, i took Popp at 5/6. Probably the hardest match i've ever watched Popp won 14-12 in the 5th after serving each time to stay in the match... The guy has balls of STEEL!

BG does that get your respect? - my own picks win! I'm not sure if I should trust your opinion again though, maybe you should copy my picks in the future!

Re: Motorola razr V3 - Wimbledon 2nd round thursday !!!

Not a great day for me, with parlays falling one after the other (Wayne and Nadal took care of that)

But Grosjean, Djokovic and Peshke took care of business if Bracciali manages to surprise duck tomorrow, that will be really good of him
