ROI vs Yield – what’s the difference?2023-11-23T13:56:38+01:00

ROI and Yield are a couple of the most important metrics in sports betting. In this FAQ, you will get to know what they mean and why they are important if you want to become a profitable sports bettor.

ROI – Return On Investment

ROI in sports betting is a measure of how much your bankroll increased during a specific period. This could for example be one month, one year or even since the beginning of your betting career.

ROI will typically increase over time, whereas Yield will stay roughly the same.

How do you calculate ROI?

Calculating your ROI is pretty straight forward. Just divide your Total profit with your Starting bankroll.

Example: You have made a profit of €900 and started with a €3,000 bankroll. To calculate your ROI: 900 / 3,000 = 0.30 = 30%. This means that your ROI would be 30% in this case.

Note: In RebelBetting, we show the ROI for each individual value- or sure bet. In this context, ROI shows how much you will profit by betting on one value bet or sure bet, compared to the money invested (the total stake).

Yield – Return per bet

Yield, in sports betting terms, means how much you profit per bet, or per unit invested (what you staked).

Your Yield is a measure on how efficient your betting is. It doesn’t take the size of your bankroll into account, so it’s a good relative number to compare with other trading strategies, or other users.

Also, Yield doesn’t change depending on bankroll and will typically not increase over time, as ROI does.

How to calculate Yield?

Calculating Yield in sports betting is also very easy. You just divide your Total profit with your Total stake (or turnover).

Example: As in the previous example, your Total profit is  €900. To achieve this profit, you have staked a total of €20,000. To calculate your Yield: 900 / 20,000 = 0.045 = 4.5%. This means that your ROI would be 4.5% in this case.

Equally important – the Closing Line Value (CLV)

Another equally important metric to measure if your betting is profitable is the closing line value or CLV.

Proven betting strategy

Value betting and sure betting by RebelBetting are proven betting strategies that actually work. It’s just math. If you trust the process, you will be profitable in sports betting!

Horse racing rules2023-06-15T14:49:03+02:00

When betting on horse racing, there are two rules which you need to be familiar with. Those two rules are Tattersall’s rule and Dead Heat rule. Tattersall’s rule applies when a horse is withdrawn from the race before start. Dead Head rule applies when two or more horses are deemed winners.

Horse arbs in RebelBetting are always between a regular bookmaker and an exchange. These rules generally doesn’t affect your arb since you back and lay the same horse.

Tattersall’s rule (Rule 4 c deductions)

When you place your bet, the odds displayed are based on all horses running in the race. If a horse is a non runner, i.e. not starting, the price will be revised for the remaining horses. Most bookmakers follow the same reduction table. The table can be found here

However, betting exchanges apply the reduction a bit different. While Rule 4 is normally applied on the winnings, exchanges applies the rule on total return.

Dead Heat rule

A term to denote a tie between two or, rarely, more runners in a race. If there is a Dead Heat, you will win part of your bet and lose part of your bet. This rarely occurs.

Isn’t Sports Arbitrage dead?2023-05-09T13:46:12+02:00

As long as the bookmakers compete against each other to get customers and are not in complete agreement of odds, there will always be sports arbitrage (or ‘sure betting‘) opportunities. Here’s why:

There are a lot of online sportsbooks. And a lot of bookmakers means a lot of competition over the customers. Sportsbooks use high odds to attract customers. And since odds are basically their estimation (+ their risk management), it’s basically a calculated guess. And bookmakers will not always agree with their competitors guesses.

This is why sports arbitrage works so well. By betting on two (or more) sufficiently high odds on different sportsbooks, you can cover all outcomes of a match and be guaranteed to win. As a RebelBetting user, you can take advantage of this situation and change the game to your advantage.

Sports arbitrages compared to financial arbitrages

Surebets differ in one crucial way compared to arbitrages in the financial markets. If you purchase gold on one exchange and then sell it in another, the price will be nearly identical. Financial arbitrages very rarely appear, and when they do they are immediately taken advantage of and disappear. The market always strives to be in perfect balance. This is not true for sports arbitrage.

If you think of the bookmakers as the markets, the odds can be seen as the price on a specific product. However, the odds/price is not reliant on supply and demand like in the stock market. It’s more a combination of the bookmakers estimation, risk management and market positioning (having attractive odds, a higher margin and possibly more risk). This is why odds are rarely identical across all bookmakers, and why thousands of sports arbitrages exist at any given moment.

Asian Handicap in Sports Betting2023-11-23T14:00:55+01:00

Asian handicap betting is a very popular market to bet on and is one of many supported markets of RebelBetting. A handicap in betting means that the bookmaker has given a virtual advantage to one of the competitors.

They are often called Asian handicaps, or just ‘AH’, because of their popularity in many Asian countries. They are also known as line betting, the spread or points betting.

The main reason for handicapping is that the draw result is eliminatedRead all about Asian handicap bets in the Ultimate Guide to sure betting.

AH0 or Draw No Bet (DNB)

Draw no bet is a special case where no actual handicap is applied, but the draw is still eliminated. This is why it’s also sometimes called AH0 (Asian Handicap 0). If the match ends in a draw, your stake will be returned to you. No profit, no loss.

Half Asian Handicaps

The team gets half a goal handicap. This means the match including handicap cannot end in a draw. One of the teams will always win with “half a goal” when a handicap is applied. Unlike Draw No Bet, there is no money back in any case. You will either win or lose your bet.

Quarter Asian Handicaps

A quarter-goal Asian handicap is a 50/50 split between the two surrounding handicaps, with half of the total stake going to each one of them. This means that a 1.75 handicap is really half a 1.5 and half a 2.0 handicap.

If you see a quarter Asian Handicap of say -0.75 on RebelBetting, it may show up as “-0.5, -1.0” on some bookmakers like Bet365. This is because bookmakers split the Asian Handicap bet into two halves, with half of the stake going towards one handicap and half going towards the other. Similarly, if you see an Asian Handicap of +1.75, it is the same thing as “+1.5, +2.0”

So, if you want to place an Asian Handicap bet of -0.75 on Bet365, simply bet on the “-0.5,-1.0” option (don’t bet on both -0.5 and -1.0 separately).

Is value and sure betting possible from my country?2024-02-05T11:41:52+01:00

It mostly depends on if the bookmakers will accept you as a customer. The more bookmakers you can use, the easier betting will be. The laws regarding online betting in your country will affect the bookmakers you’re allowed to register on. Sometimes a bookmaker will have some arbitrary business reason to restrict users from certain countries. (Note that the concept of arbitrage trading in itself is legal all over the world, as long as online betting is allowed).

If you’re from the UK, Scandinavia, most of Europe, Japan, South Korea or Australia, you’re in luck! You will be welcomed by most bookmakers. We don’t keep an updated list of allowed countries on all bookmakers, and since this information can be difficult to find, it might be quicker just to ask the bookmakers, or try to register. You can however check the most popular bookmakers in your country that are used by your fellow RebelBettors.

Even if you’re from a country with restrictions, there is hope! We have RebelBetting users from over 140 countries.
One option is to use the account of a friend in another country, and a VPN to effectively surf from that country. Note that this might break the terms & conditions of some bookmakers, so it’s your obligation to make sure this is OK. You can find more detailed information about this on the internet.

Read more about how to improve your privacy.

Privacy and hiding your identity2023-08-30T14:43:21+02:00

It’s a good idea to keep as much privacy as possible towards the bookmakers when you’re using profitable betting products.

Step one is to hide your IP number and making it harder to uniquely identify (“fingerprint”) you. The first rule is to use a VPN service. VPN stands for “virtual private network” and means that all your internet traffic goes through a “tunnel” that secures, encrypts and anonymizes you and your location.

Why you should use a VPN

  • If you want to create a second account on a bookmaker, you need to use a different IP-number if you want to avoid suspicion.
  • If you want to register on a bookmaker that has restricted your country, a VPN can make it look like you’re located somewhere else.
  • Allows you to place bets from restricted countries with censorship.
  • If you’re labeled as an expert trader by one bookmaker, you might get limited by others if they can uniquely identify you. There are rumors of bookmakers working together to identify unwanted players. Using a VPN and the tips below will help you stay unlimited for longer in these cases.

Bonus benefits:

  • View restricted streaming services and TV channels that are blocked in your country.
  • Your traffic is never logged and cannot be traced.

We have done a thorough comparison of all VPN services and can strongly recommend NordVPN. For a thorough explanation of why, read our review of NordVPN and get a 77% discount!

More tips

We have gathered most of our tips for staying anonymous here.

Clear all cookies between sessions. Bookmakers can track you through third-party sites like advertising networks and social media.

Do this: Make a special shortcut to start a web browser in private / incognito mode.

Hide your social media identity. Never use your social media email when registering with bookmakers. They can and will profile you and your network. If you follow a known sports trader on Twitter, that might be enough to label you as unwanted.
Do this: If you’re surfing using RebelBetting, you’re safe. We use a completely separate web browser, with cookies and cache files that are never shared with your regular web browser. If using a web browser, use the clear cookies method above.

If you have multiple accounts, you need to take extra precautions. Don’t use the bookmakers’ mobile app (they have multiple ways of detecting you, including GPS location). Be even more careful with clearing cookies, preferably use another Windows (a virtual PC is a simple method) or at the minimum another web browser. Always use a VPN and change IP between logins. Use different deposit and withdrawal methods.

It’s very easy to detect if you’re using the same web browser on the same computer for example. Bookmakers can even detect the fonts you have installed in your OS. Use this fingerprint checker.

If you use a VPN and these tips, you will be as safe as is practically possible. If you want even more protection, you can set up one or several virtual machines with a clean installation of the most common Windows OS and web browser.

If you haven’t already, set up a VPN now!

Risks with high arbitrages2023-05-09T13:43:40+02:00

Trying to go after the highest arbs all the time is usually not a good strategy in the long run. The reason is that high arbs have a higher risk of including odds that are bookmaker mistakes, or so called palpable errors. Sometimes, the bookmaker will even void your bet. While they do pay you back your stake, it can still cost you if the voided bet was the winning one. Betting on smaller arbs more frequently will result in a lesser risk for palps and you might also be limited less quickly.

Also, as a guideline, double-check that the arb you bet on is correct and that there hasn’t been a market mix up. Be extra cautious when it comes to arbs over 10%. Also, check that the teams you are betting on are playing in the same tournament before placing the arb.

Before placing arbs on Ice Hockey, you need to know the following:

Overtime rules for hockey often differ between bookmakers, and sometimes between different leagues or markets. Please verify that the overtime rules are the same on all bookmakers before placing your bets. Failure to do so might lead to unexpected losses if the game ends in a draw after regular time.

Retention Rate2023-05-09T13:42:26+02:00

Retention rate is an indication of how much of your bonus you will retain after placing a bet.

What does retention rate mean?

A bet with 100% retention rate means that if you bet your entire bonus on that bet your entire bonus will be intact. That is, if you have a €50 bonus and bet the whole amount on one outcome, you will still have €50. A bet with 95% retention rate and a €50 bonus means that if you bet the whole amount you will have €47.50 left of your bonus (95% of 50).

This calculation applies to free bets where the whole bonus amount can be wagered and cleared in a single bet. A bonus with rollover requirements is calculated a bit different. (Rollover means you need to bet the money a fixed number of times before the bonus can be withdrawn). A bonus of €50 with a rollover requirement of 5 times means that a total amount of €250 has to be wagered. When wagering €250 with a retention rate of 95% you will have €237.50 left (95% of 250). This means that you have lost €12.50 when clearing your bonus. Since the bonus was €50 you have retained €37.50 (50-12.50).

Another way of calculating this is as follows. You loose 5% (100 – 95) each time you bet your €50 bonus, which calculates to €2.50. Loosing €2.50 for 5 consecutive times equals €12.5.

What if the retention rate is higher than 100%?

Now, imagine that you wager your bonuses on bet with retention rates higher than 100%. This means that you will keep your entire bonus, and possibly also earn a bit more on each bet. Select bets with as high retention rate as possible since it will let you keep as much of your bonus as possible when meeting the rollover requirements.

MatchedBetting often displays these positive retention rates because we have access to arbitrage odds.

Read more about the different types of bonuses.

Taxation on bets2023-05-09T13:41:59+02:00

Some bookmakers may charge a tax on your bets, depending on where you reside or where the bookmaker has its license. We’ve developed a solution for this tax where you can specify which taxation method (if any) is applied to any bookmaker account.

The sure bet / value percentage will then be adjusted accordingly, fully automatic of course. You can find this setting under Options/Bookmaker. You can select each bookmaker in the drop-down menu and specify tax settings individually.

There are different ways in how bookmakers handle taxation. Some take a percent of the Profit or a percent of the Stake. Other bookmakers chose to completely ignore it (doesn’t charge any tax on your bets).

Selecting a different bookmaker domain2023-05-09T13:41:47+02:00

You can select to use a different bookmaker domain if the standard bookmaker domain is not available from your country. For instance from bet365.com to bet365.com.au. This can be changed under Options/Bookmaker.

If you select another bookmaker domain, please note the following

  • No guarantee can be made that any eventual deep link will work. Sorry about this!
  • The bookmakers odds (that is in the arb or value bet) might not be available at another bookmaker domain. This is because of the fact that some bookmakers offer different odds (and sometimes not even odds at all) on the same match depending on what domain you are using.

Important: Do not change the bookmaker domain unless you absolutely have to!

Matchbook tips & commission explained2023-05-09T13:41:16+02:00

Matchbook is a bit different when compared to Betfair, Betdaq or Smarkets. Below are som general tips to make it easier using Matchbook.

1. Enter your Matchbook settings and select “Back-Lay” under “Exchange Type” (highlighted in the screenshot below). Now you will see the odds in the same way as in Betfair, instead of Matchbooks “Binary” odds which can be difficult to understand.[singlepic id=32 w=320 h=240 float=none]

2. Let’s say that you wish to lay (bet against) Man City. In the below screenshot you can see that the lay-odds is 3.560 (with a market depth of $2,500). Click on that odds to add the bet into your “Order Pad”.[singlepic id=30 float=none]

3. “b-stake” is your “Backers stake” (the amount you wish to win). “L-stake” is your liability (what you risk to lose).[singlepic id=31 float=none]

For more information about lay-betting, just go to the lay-bet FAQ.

 

Matchbook commission explained

Matchbook charges 2-4% commission on bets. Full explanation here

0% Commission Promotion

Sometimes Matchbook runs promotions where they set commission to 0% for RebelBetting customers.
If you have registered for this promotion with your Matchbook username, the comission calculation is automatically adjusted.
If you HAVEN’T registered, the ROI calculation is incorrect and you need to calculate yourself manually.

 

 

Tennis betting rules2023-09-07T13:23:25+02:00

The bookies have different retirement rules on certain sports, most notably in tennis.

Unless the rule is satisfied, all bets will be voided and your stake returned.

There are four different tennis rules on the market today, and they can be categorized as follows.

For the bet to stand, only one serve is required in the match. That means that if a player retires (due to an injury for example) at any time after the first serve, the bet stands with the bookies that have this rule on tennis.
For the bet to stand, at least one set needs to be completed in the match. That means that if a player retires after one set has been completed, the bet stands. However, if a player retires before one set has been completed, the bet is void (cancelled) and you will get your stake back.

For the bet to stand, at least two sets needs to be completed in the match. That means that if a player retires after two sets have been completed, the bet stands. However, if a player retires before two sets have been completed, the bet is void (cancelled) and you will get your stake back.

The entire match has to be completed in order for the bet to stand. A player can’t retire without the bet being void.

What is a Palpable Error in sports betting?2023-05-09T13:38:38+02:00

A bookmaker can cancel (void) your bet, claiming it was a palpable error (or a “palp”). This can occur when a bookmaker has made what they call “an obvious mistake”, such as reversed the odds of a match or some other kind of accidental error made while quoting the odds.

Our servers filter away a lot of obvious palps, and automatically hide them for you, but in rare occasions they might get past our filtering systems. If the sure- or value bet is particularly high, this might be an indication that the risk of palpable error is higher than normal.

 

What are Middles in sure betting?2023-05-09T13:38:17+02:00

A potentially very profitable situation can occur in sure betting and they are called middles. A middle is an arbitrage bet where if a match ends with a certain result, you can either win one bet and get the other bet refunded, or win both your bets.

Read all about middles in the Ultimate guide to sure betting

What does Stake Kidnapping mean?2023-05-09T13:37:59+02:00

Stake kidnapping is a term used in RebelBetting to identify bookmakers which practice, what we consider, near fraudulent behavior with customers bets.

A proper and respectable bookmaker will honor the bets taken and pay out potential winnings, with exception of the palpable error rule. A confirmed bet can’t be cancelled by you as a customer and neither by them.

However, some bookmakers feel that they have the right to accept your bet and at a later time decide whether to accept parts or all of your stake. These bookmakers ‘kidnap’ your stake while they decide what to do with it. You as a customer have no option to cancel the bet while it is up for review. A more respectable way of handling this, would be like the bookmaker Betsson which gives the user an option whether to send all or parts of the stake for review or to edit the bet.

Bookmakers identified with this behavior are:

Betsafe

Betsafe have sometimes chosen to reject parts or all of the stake long after a bet was initially confirmed. This might be done without any notification which would indicate that the bet is up for review. The stake might simply be kidnapped and users may find themselves in an unwanted situation. We have however also gotten reports from our customers that hasn’t seen this behavior with Betsafe.

Expekt

Expekt used to provide the user with a Betsson-like option where the choice was given to cancel the bet, edit the bet or send parts or all of the stake for review. This would let the user back out of an unwanted situation. Now, you will be notified only AFTER you press confirm, whether your stake is kidnapped or not.

What is a Lay Bet in Sports Betting?2023-06-20T13:17:57+02:00

Lay betting is an important part of sure betting.

The difference between a regular bet (also known as a back bet) and a lay bet, is that on a back bet you bet on a team/player to win. If you were to place a lay bet on the same team/player, you bet on that team/player NOT to win. You can place a lay bet on exchanges such as BetfairMatchbook and Smarkets.

Read more about lay betting and see lay bet examples in the Ultimate guide to sure betting.

Mixed Rules in Tennis2023-05-09T13:35:47+02:00

If you bet on a tennis arbitrage at say, Bwin and Expekt, they both have the Group1 rules. This means that even if a player retires, the arb is valid, and you´ll get paid the expected amount regardless of who retires (or who wins). As long as you place arbs on bookies that have the same rules, you’re home free.

But what happens if you bet on “mixed rules”, where the bookies have different rules)? (For advanced arbitrage bettors only)

Let’s see what happens if you bet $500 with odds 2,05 on Player1 on Bookie1 that has the “Ball Served” rule, and $500 with odds 2,05 on Player 2 on Bookie2 that has the “1 Set Completed” rule.

  • If neither tennis player retires, you´ll get paid your expected arbitrage percentage ($25 or 2,5%)
  • If Player1 retires before the first set is completed, Player2 officially wins the match. You have then lost your bet at Bookie1, and your bet at Bookie2 will get refunded to your account. In total, you´ve lost the entire wager amount on Bookie1 (-$500).
  • If Player2 retires before the first set is completed, Player1 officially wins the match. You have then won your bet at Bookie1 (+$525), and your bet at Bookie2 will get refunded.
  • If Player1 or Player2 retires after the first set is complete, the bet stands on both bookies, and you´ll get paid your expected arbitrage percentage ($25 or 2,5%).

Though not common, it happens sometimes that tennis players retire. The risk of this happening depends on a lot of factors, such as which the participants are (some players retires more than others) the weather condition, the surface of the event (hard court, clay etc) and so on. For example, in Wimbledon 2009, Michael Llodra had to retire when colliding with the umpire’s chair and a ball girl.

In other words, it could be extremely risky betting on mixed rules, and therefore we do not recommend doing it if you do not fully understand the risks of it.

However, if you do understand the risks and are comfortable with the variance then it can be very profitable in the long run to bet on mixed rules. This is because there are a high number of bets available with mixed rules.

Cross Market sure bets2023-06-20T13:19:34+02:00

Cross market sure bets are a mix of two or more different markets. There are many possible combinations that can result in a sure bet. The examples below illustrate two basic combinations and how to calculate the results. Learn all about cross market bets and much more in the Ultimate sure betting guide.

Example 1

A regular threeway (1X2) arbitrage, but replacing the bet on the home team with a simple Asian handicap bet.

Bet on Bookmaker Bet type
Team1 Bookie1 AH1(0)
Draw Bookie2 X
Team2 Bookie3 2

Outcomes

Team1 win: You will win your bet at Bookie1.
A draw: You will get your stake refunded at Bookie1 and win your draw-bet at Bookie2.
Team2 win: You will win your bet at Bookie3.

 

Example 2

A regular threeway (1X2) arbitrage, replacing the bet on the home team with a quarter Asian handicap bet.

Bet on Bookmaker Bet type
Team1 Bookie1 AH1(-0.25)
Draw Bookie2 X
Team2 Bookie3 2

Outcomes

Team1 win: You will win your bet at Bookie1.
A draw: You will win your draw-bet at Bookie2. Also you will get half your stake at Bookie1 refunded (Since AH1(-0.25) implies that you bet one half of your stake on AH1(0) and the other half on AH1(-0.5))
Team2 win: You will win your bet at Bookie3.

Over 17.000 cross market combinations!

The above examples are only two of many combinations available. Currently we support over 17.000 cross market combinations!

Reversed Participants in RebelBetting2023-05-09T13:34:00+02:00

If you get the Reversed Participants notice in the bet card, it’s just to let you know that the order of the participants might not be the same on both bookmakers.

For instance, on Pinnacle it might be:
Korea – Spain

And on Betfair it might be:
Spain – Korea

This could happen for instance if a match is played at neutral ground and no team is the home team. When the participants are reversed, you must (as you always should be doing) make sure that you back the correct players on the correct sportsbook, as it might be confusing when the participants do not have the same order at both bookmakers.

What markets are supported?2023-11-23T09:40:58+01:00
  • 2-way (also known as Win, MoneyLine, PuckLine or Draw no bet)
  • 1X2 (also known as 3-way)

Bet types/markets and their meaning

The section below covers the most common bet types. But first, we’ll have to address the fact that bookmakers can be somewhat inconsistent in naming bet types.

It’s quite frustrating when you’re about to place a bet, to not even find the correct bet type on the bookmaker website. But the bet type might just be presented with a different name than what you are looking for. This is because some bet types are referred to differently in different parts of the world. For a sports betting beginner, this can be rather confusing. But with a little practice, you’ll soon learn how each bookmaker presents their odds.

Read more about the different bet types in the Ultimate Guide to Sure Betting.

Win / Moneyline / Draw No Bet

Also known as straight bet, DNB or 2-way bet.

One of the most popular bet types and is offered in various sports. This market simply means betting on a specific team to win a game, match or other event.

The term “win” is used almost everywhere, while “moneyline” is mostly used in the United States and a few other regions. The term “straight bet” can also be used for this type of wager.

Draw No Bet

In the case of three possible outcomes, as in soccer, a draw results in your stake being returned. Hence the name “draw no bet”. Additionally, an Asian handicap of 0 (AH0) is the same as Draw No Bet, as it also eliminates the option of a draw.

1X2

1X2 is one of the most popular bet types in soccer. A 1X2 bet involves a match of two teams with three possible outcomes: Home (1), Draw (X) and Away (2). This market may also be known as Full Time Result, Match Betting, or Three-Way Bet.

Asian Handicap (AH)

Also known as point spread, puckline (hockey), game handicap (tennis) or map handicap (e-sports)

A handicap in betting means that the bookmaker has given a virtual advantage to one of the competitors. The main reason for handicapping is that the draw result is eliminated. (The two odds also move closer to 2.00, which can help even out your variance).

With an Asian Handicap, a draw is known as a push and you are refunded part or all of your original wager.

AH0 = DNB (Draw no bet)
Additionally, you can use the level Asian handicap betting market which displays the handicap as 0. If the game ended in a draw, your stake would be returned – effectively achieving the same outcome as a Draw No Bet.

Half and quarter Asian Handicaps
Half and quarter Asian handicap is also known as a split handicap because the initial bet is split between two handicaps.

Read more about Asian Handicap betting

European Handicap (EH)

Also known as 3-way handicap or 1X2 handicap

European handicap is basically a 3-way bet, similar to a 1X2 match result bet. In matches where there is a difference in strength between the two teams, a handicap is placed on the underdog, to even out the match.

The difference with Asian handicap is that the EH is always an integer number. Instead of placing an Asian Handicap of -1,5 goals or -1,75 goals, the European handicap is always of a -1, -2, -3 etc. kind.

If you bet on a European Handicap, a draw is possible, but a European Handicap draw can only be achieved if the favourite team matches the goal handicap.

Over / Under (OU)

Also known as Totals, Goal line

Over/under bets are typically placed on soccer and basketball games but are common in other sports as well. You bet on the total number of goals/points that will be scored in the match, no matter which team. In tennis, you can bet on the total number of sets or games that will be played before the match is over.

Who wins the match is irrelevant. Bookmakers will offer odds and set a line at what they estimate the total goals or points in the match are likely to be.

Example: In a football match, if you bet on over 3 goals, you lose your bet if only one or two goals are scored and win if more than three goals are scored. If exactly three goals are scored, your stake will be refunded.

Half point over/under example: If you bet on “under 2.5 goals” and there are one or two goals in the game, you win. If there are three or more, you lose the bet. The middle option is effectively removed in a half-point over/under.

Double chance

A double chance bet allows you to cover two of the three possible outcomes in a match with one bet. This type of bet is often offered for soccer games. When betting on a Double chance bet there are three possible options to bet on:

Home or Draw (1X) – Your bet will win if the home team wins or the match ends in a draw. It will lose if the away team wins.

Draw or Away (X2) – Your bet wins if the away team wins or it’s a draw. You lose if the home team wins.

Home or Away(12) – With this bet, you win if there’s a winner regardless of whether it’s the home or away team. Your bet will lose if the match ends in a draw.

Lay bet

Lay betting is a bet type offered by betting exchanges and is a kind of bet where you bet on something not to happen. With a regular bet (also known as a back bet) you bet on something to happen.

Lay betting basically gives bettors an option to play the role of the bookmaker, offering odds to sell a bet instead of to back a bet. Learn more about Lay betting.

E-wallets in Sports Betting2023-05-09T13:31:40+02:00

We recommend that you use Neteller or Skrill (Moneybookers) as your E-wallet. With an E-wallet account, you will avoid most of the transaction fees to and from bookmakers. Often, bookmakers charge you a fee if you deposit and/or withdraw with VISA or MasterCard.

Opening your E-wallet account is easy, but you will need to verify certain things with them (depending on what E-wallet you choose). Please be advised that this verification process could take a few days – but it is time well spent in the long run!

Neteller 20 USD bonus

Negative Middle – What it is in sure betting2023-05-09T13:30:43+02:00

As you might know, regular middles are positive arbs with a middle. For instance, you could bet on an American Football middle:

Tennessee (-7) @ 1.91
Pittsburgh (7.5) @ 2.14

If the middle doesn’t hit, you will make your regular arb percentage (0.92% in the example above). If the middle does hit (Tennessee wins with exactly 7 points), you will win your bet on Pittsburgh and get your bet on Tennessee refunded (making a profit of around 50%).

 

A negative middle has a negative arb percentage, but the spread can be bigger:

Tennessee (-6) @ 1.91
Pittsburgh (7.5) @ 2.04

This middle has a negative arb percentage (-1.36%), but the middle is 1.5 points. In this example, if Tennessee wins with 6 points, you will make a profit of around 50%. But if they win with 7 points, you will win both your bets (making a profit of nearly 100%).

Think of negative middles as a long term investment
In the second example above, the negative middle was -1.36%. This means that if the middle does not hit, you will lose 1.36% of your total stake. This may sound pretty bad, but think about it for a second; You only need to hit the spread once every 73.5 times in order for the arb to be profitable in the long run.

An additional upside on negative middles
As negative middles aren’t obviously in an arb situation, they usually stick around longer than ordinary middles and arbs. This means more time for you to bet on them, and less risk that the bookmakers will get a whiff of what your up to!

Learn more about sure betting as an investment method.

Inverted Middle – What is it in sure betting?2023-05-09T13:28:53+02:00

An inverted middle is very risky to bet on.  In contrast to a standard middle, you will make a profit if the total or line falls inside a certain range, an inverted middle, also called a Polish middle, you will profit if the total or line falls outside a specific range. If the “middle” in an inverted middle occurs, you could lose both your bets, hence causing severe damage to your bankroll. Learn all about inverted middles in the Ultimate guide to sure betting. 

Basically, when betting on inverted middles, to obtain a profit you want the Asian Handicap or the Over/Under to fall outside of the middle. 

Polish middles are the most dangerous type of middles as there is a risk you can lose both of your bets, but there is of course also a chance you will profit. This is a form of betting on the opposite of a negative middles strategy. Rather than slightly losing money each time until eventually getting a big win, you win a high percentage return on your stake almost every game until you won’t.  As an example, you might win 15% every game, and then suddenly take a 100% loss. 

This method is more related to gambling than actual arbitrage betting. However, it could be a really profitable investment because there is a high percentage of profit. It will be a  benefit if you have skills in regular football betting to know what are the abilities of the teams and to know which Polish Middles condition is more probably to happen. That being said, do not bet on inverted middles if you are not 100% sure of what you´re doing. It is only recommended for very advanced sports traders who have high enough working capital to withstand a total loss on a bet. If you are new ti sure betting, your bankroll can be compromised by a Polish middle.

Reliability – What does it mean in RebelBetting?2023-05-09T13:28:03+02:00

The reliability of a bet is calculated with several different variables. Among these variables are for example:

  • The percentage of the sure bet (unusually high sure bets decrease the reliability)
  • Last bet date (if the last bet date differs too much, the reliability goes down)
  • How well the participants’ name match each other

 

The reliability of a sure bet is meant to be seen as a guideline for you when you bet, but please be thorough and always check the validity of the arb yourself.

What currency should I use?2023-05-09T13:27:21+02:00

You should strive to have every account (bookie accounts, e-wallets etc.) in the same currency. USD, EUR or GBP are the most supported currencies out there.

If you have every account in the same currency, you’ll minimize the unnecessary costs of currency exchanges. You will also avoid the hassle of having to calculate a bet size in a different currency.

We do offer Multi Currency Support though!

Same bookie notice2023-05-09T13:27:14+02:00

The SameBookie notice is displayed when selecting an arb where two or more outcomes in an arb is on the same bookmaker.

It is not recommended to place two bets on the same match on the same bookmaker, as this might flag you as a sharp bettor or arber in the bookmakers point of view. Avoid this and your bookmaker accounts will probably last longer!

Please note that this is not a problem with non-limiting bookmakers, like Pinnacle, Betfair, Betdaq and Smarkets. You can bet 2/3 outcomes at these bookmakers.

How do I calculate the stakes in the arbitrage?2023-05-09T13:26:04+02:00

You don’t have to!

The integrated calculator of RebelBetting automatically calculates the bet size at every bookmaker depending on:

  • What the odds are

  • What type of arbitrage it is, and
  • Your total stake of the arbitrage

You can also enter a fixed stake at any bookmaker and the other stakes will update themselves accordingly.

There is also the option to maximize your stake to a certain outcome if you wish (and therefore profit more if that outcome hits).

Built in Sure Betting Calculator in RebelBetting
What bookmaker account language should I use?2023-05-09T13:25:40+02:00

As both value betting and sure betting are web based services, it doesn’t matter what language you use at the sportsbooks!

Why do the number of playable arbs differ so much?2023-05-09T13:23:29+02:00

Generally, the closer to an event it is, the more bets appear. This is due to the fact that sportsbooks tend to adjust their odds more frequently closer to a match (depending on lots of factors such as the weather, injuries, team/player form, rumors and so on). Some bookmakers also adjust odds in order to attract more customers closer to an event (to even out their risk, they always want about the same monetary risk on all outcomes).

The number of bets available therefore depends on how many, and which sportsbook accounts you have available, what the sport is in the sure bet, season (what events are running), day of the week and even time of the day. Most often there are more bets at the end of the week (Thursday-Sunday) because more matches are played at the weekend.

What you must know when betting on baseball2023-05-09T13:18:23+02:00

When placing an arb on baseball, there are a few things you must check before placing the arb.

1. Make sure the bet is either “action” or “listed”

By placing a bet on the “action”, you are tied into the line no matter what — even if there are any late pitching changes.
If you choose to bet the “listed” pitcher, your bet will only be valid if the pitchers listed at the time you placed your wager take the mound.

2. Check that the starting pitchers are the same on both bookmakers

Bookmaker might have different starting pitchers listed on the same baseball match. If the listed starting pitchers do not start, the bet will be void. That is why you must check that the listed starting pitchers are the same on both bookmakers.

3. Check that the time of the match is the same on both bookmakers

Sometimes, the same two baseball teams can meet each other twice on the same day. And because bookmakers use different time zones and daylight savings, our servers might match two different games (on the same day) together. That is why you must double check that you are placing your bets on the same match.

Why do different matches show up in the same arb?2023-05-09T13:17:56+02:00

Team names
Bookmakers often have different names on the same team. As an example in Ice Hockey, the Russian U20 youth team could be named:

  • Russia U20
  • Russia Youth
  • Russia

– The name Russia Youth could refer to their U18 team, U20 team, or even their U18 Women’s team.
– The name Russia could refer to all Russia’s national teams.

As you can see, the best is to name the team Russia U20, as this could only be the U20 team. But unfortunately, bookmakers can name the team as they see fit.

Event names
The same applies to the bookmakers names on events/cups. For instance, the international Ice Hockey tournament Karjala Cup could be named:

  • Karjala Cup
  • Internationals
  • Friendlies

– The name Internationals could refer to Karjala Cup, World Cup, International Friendlies, International Youth matches etcetera etcetera. Basically, all international events could be named Internationals. The same applies to the event Friendlies (yes, some bookmakers have the event name Friendlies for all kinds of matches, including international cups).

As you can see, the best is to name the event above Karjala Cup, as this could only refer to Karjala Cup. Unfortunately, bookmakers can name the events as they see fit as well.

 

Please note!

Because of the bookmakers inconsistent naming of teams and events, situations could occur to be aware of.
As an example, these two very different tournaments are played at the same day:

  Bookmaker 1 Bookmaker 2
Actual Event Karjala Cup U20 4 Nations Tournament
Actual Teams Russia – Finland Russia U20 – Finland U20
Bookmaker Event Name Internationals International Youth
Bookmaker Team Names Russia – Finland Russia – Finland

 

Note that the above team names are the same on both bookmakers. In reality, the Russian and Finnish senior teams are playing against eachother (in Karjala Cup) at the same time that the Russian and Finnish U20 teams (in a youth tournament). This could lead to a false arb between Russia (Bookmaker 1) and Finland U20 (Bookmaker 2).

  • To avoid situations like these, please check that the teams you are betting on are playing in the same tournament before placing the arb.

What is a Free Bet?2023-05-09T11:46:22+02:00

A free bet is for example if you get €25 to bet with at a bookmaker. If you place the full amount on a match with odds 1.5, you will win €37.50. But the bookmaker will only pay out your winnings (€12.50). This is a SNR (stake not returned) free bet. It’s also commonly called a “matched bet”, where the bookmaker doubles your bet amount up to a specific limit.

Since you will only get to keep the winnings in a free bet, you want to bet on a high odds that maximizes your potential profits. To guarantee a profit, you cover the other side using matched betting or arbitrage betting.

There are also SR (stake returned) free bets, but they are rare. Free bets are usually (but not always) only given to new customers. Also, please make sure to check the bookmakers free bet rules, as they might differ from one another.

What is a deposit or sign up bonus?2023-05-09T11:46:14+02:00

If you receive a deposit bonus or sign up bonus for €25, and you place the full amount on the same match as above, you will win €37.50. You will in other words keep the full amount, as the €25 bonus is credited to you.

Bonuses usually have roll over requirements, so you might have roll over (bet) x times the bonus before you can make a withdrawal. But the bonus amount of €25 is yours.

These bonuses can only be claimed when registering for the first time, if not specifically written in the terms. There are also reload bonuses, which can also be claimed by existing customers. These bonuses usually appear around big events such as the World Cup, a tennis Grand Slam etc.
