hi guys Max here from betslayer with a really cool video on the best bookies for arbitrage, now this is foundational fundamental to everything we do in arbitrage betting and I've just put my two cents in on which bookmakers I use the people that use betslayer use the most and just a bit of an explanation about Sharp and soft bookies. I'll jump straight in but this is going to be a very useful video so make sure you watch until the end and as ever please take a moment to subscribe like the video and leave a comment below it really helps me out and I really appreciate it. Anyway let'sjump straight in there are a number of arbitrage friendly bookmakers out there which will never live limit you there are also bookmakers for arbitrage who will limit you that provide some of the best odds and they're actually more lenient than most,and this article I will go over the best bookmakers for sports arbitrage betting and explain some of the reasons why the first thing to consider when choosing a bookmaker is, is it a sharp or soft bookmaker. Now what does that mean? Okay Sharp bookmakers like pinnacle have automatic odds movement and rapid response to movements in the market the odds are generally less competitive compared to soft bookmakers for this reason, but many sharp bookmakers like pinnacle will never limit you so they're an extremely useful type of bookmaker to have if you are just using Sharp bookies in arbitrage you would have extremely limited opportunities and the arbs would probably rarely go over 1% ROI but don't sweat that's why we have soft bookies and competitive rate exchanges. So here are the best Sharp bookmakers for arbitrage: Pinnacle 3ET,SBObet which is Asian Handicap betting which is a subject for another video.Bet365 188bet these guys have you know competitive odds but still will maybe eventually limit you 188Bet used to be a bit better. Bet365 is one of the best pinnacle I'd say is the best bookmaker for arbitrage just because they'll never limit you you can have really high betting stakes and it just works. 3et is a bit newer you need to apply to get an account there but I think that you know that they're very similar to soft bookmakers like Bwin are useful because unlike sharp bookies their odds are changed manually usually by a trader this means odds might be substantially different between these bookies meaning there are lots of opportunities for big arbitrage so here are the best soft bookmakers for arbitrage they're rated by you know how long they keep your accounts open and you know usually wanna if you're using a soft cookie to make sure they're a big bookie because they're more likely to play by the rules and and not mess you around with with withdrawals and things like that William Hill, bwin Coral, marathon bet, Ladbrokes was on that list up at this point but recently we've been getting lots of complaints about their doing some stuff but I think Ladbrokes is still okay I use them. So why are betting exchanges useful for arbitrage? betting exchanges are like an online marketplace with punters to bet against themselves on sporting events around the world customers bet against each other not the exchange and that's how the odds are calculated the exchange just takes a commission of you know 1 to 5 percent,they're useful because they'll never limit you because their odds aren't manipulated by traders it means there can be great opportunities for arbitrage especially because you can lay a bet. ie bet against every outcome apart from winning which means there's fewer bets to place in order to cover all outcomes to make a profit many people see great results from arbing a soft bookie against an exchange or sharp bookie so Smarkets, MatchBook I think they do 1 percent commission, Betfair's the biggest exchange in the world so they're up to 5 percent BetDAQ think that's about 2% and and those are basically what you need to know about bookmaker arbitrage to do with soft bookie, sharp bookies, exchanges if you have any comments or questions leave a comment in the description box again please subscribe it really helps me continue to make videos for you guys like this and good luck with your arbitrage betting.
