How to use forks in sports betting
Bookmaker's forks (arbitrage, sure bet) is an opportunity to bet on all possible results of the competition in different bookmakers' offices and make a profit regardless of the outcome of the competition. The amount of profit is within a few per cent of the bet.
To illustrate, let's look at an example of how this strategy works. Let's say one bookmaker offers to bet on ТМ 2.5 with odds of 2.15 and the other one on ТБ 2.5 with odds of 2.26. In this case, there is an obvious fork, because betting on either of these outcomes, the player will in any case receive income. Let's calculate how much we will earn with a bet of 40 000 KSh (20 000 KSh for each outcome):
TM 2.5: 200*2.15 = 430 - 400 = 3000 KSh ; TB 2.5: 200*2.26 = 452 - 400 = 5200 KSh
As you can see - guaranteed earnings from 1 arbitrage situation will be at least $30. Another issue is that such obvious arbitrage situations are very rare, and it is not easy to look for more complicated ones and calculate them, that is why most professional players use our service.
Is betting on forks legal?
It is legal to place arbitrage situations in bookmakers' offices on any sports events - it is no different from ordinary betting. The bookmaker offers a price, and you agree to it by placing a bet. The Best odds search and fork services are similar to online price comparison services. It's perfectly legal to make money on bookmaker's bets with the help of fork betting!
If it is very profitable, why doesn't everyone do it?
Firstly, not everyone knows about it. Secondly, not everyone believes that forks in sports betting are a profitable strategy. Thirdly, each way of earning has its pros and cons.
Everyone chooses what is interesting to him on the background of how much he can earn on it. In general, we can say that this strategy is not bad for extra income. With minimal risk, the return on capital is quite high.
