The bookmakers currently have a technical issue with their odds feed so odds were not updating – For now, we have temporarily hidden them from the odds search until the bookmakers can resolve the issue.

Can these sites be used In-Play to find matches at Half Time? As in the Billy Hills offer

Hi Mike. On a good day £20. Not a huge amount from a £1000 Betfair pot. However £20 per day builds up. Some days are better than others obviously. At the end of the day its a hobby, making money from the gambling industry. I tend to put on £5-£10 bets with the bookies to stay under the radar as best as possible, though I’ve lost a few good arbing accounts (Unibet just today).
My non arbing/matched betting gambling buddies just didn’t get arbing when I started it (“Whats the point?”, “Boring”, “too time consuming”). However when I tell them that the holiday next summer is paid for through it, it pricks their ears up!+0mike j 6 December 1, 2015 at 8:29 pm
Hey dockie, just read your reply. When your arbing is it mainly back/lay or just simple back betting on events with only 2 outcomes. I have been backing/laying horses for about £2 a day profit but that’s just an easy way to transfer my balance at stan James over to betfair without withdrawing, I will have to check this odds matched out.+0Mark 1 December 1, 2015 at 11:34 pm
I’m not really an arber but would imagine that if you only place bets on a bookies highest prices on perhaps obscure matches such as the Lithuania Women’s under 14’s 4th Division over under 4 yellow cards them alarm bells start ringing!+0Coco Popo 0 December 2, 2015 at 12:10 am
All odds are published, therefore generally available. The bookies will be recording all their odds and those of the exchange. They will review bets placed, and it will soon become clear if you are always arbing. If you are doing this at the last minute odds change quickly, so it may not be picked up. If however you find a clear arb in advance the will likely know.
It just depends how closely the monitor and how your other bets appear.+0Dockie 1 December 2, 2015 at 12:46 am
Hi Mike. Yes back/lay 2 outcomes. I do less than I did in the summer now that I’ve stumbled across matched betting. Lost a few accounts. Sportingbet went after I had 16/1 and 20/1 winners recently. Id backed them for a small arb to clear my balance, but I’m the end just withdrew as there was too much in there. Had a feeling the end was coming anyway even before the inevitable rejected bets started.+0Dockie 1 December 2, 2015 at 12:52 am
Fairly high chance of getting found out sadly. It seems that some companies are more tolerant of arbs than others. Stan James blocked both mine and ‘my wives’ account after 5-6 losing bets. But 365 and Ladbrokes amongst others allow me to carry on. It’s been very profitable since I started in in June. However starting to lose accounts on a reasonably regular basis. So may have to review it all as I don’t want to lose the opportunity to matched bet. However matched betting and doing enhanced odds offers alone will probably get you banned too!!+0
