anyone of you ever did such betting. is it legal after all??
ah annabel, you learn fast
yes i "arb" all the time, if you get your timing right you most definitley can make 100% risk free profits but like you said you have to do you research and sure bets does provide a good analysis of various markets. The painful thing is that you need about 10 accounts open at the one time.
another good way of arbing is through live betting, or in running betting. Easy money is to be had especially on clay where a break of serve means nothing yet the market has to adjust for it hence enabling punters to take both players at higher than $2 each.
btw, stupid question but are you female and where are you from?
