Paper trading

If you are new to sports arbitrage you should first practise arbing without the use of real money. This is called paper trading and it’s a good way of learning the basics of the arbing process. Don’t dismiss the importance of paper trading – it gives you valuable knowledge about the whole betting procedure.

When paper trading you will be making the same steps as you would be if you were betting for real, except confirming your bet.

How to paper trade:

  1. Start the sure betting service, select an arb in the list and find the match at each bookmaker. If you don’t have a user yet, register here.
  2. Verify that the odds haven’t changed.
  3. Add them to the betslip.
  4. Enter your stakes.
  5. Verify that the information is correct. Doublecheck participants, date and time, name of event.
  6. Mentally place your arb.
  7. Practice logging your fictional bets in the BetTracker.

By practising paper trading you’ll soon get to know the differences in how each bookmaker behaves and you’ll get fast at catching arbs.
