Those who start betting will probably do so with the ulterior motive of winning something in the future. Wouldn't it be great if there was a "safe bet" where you could make a profit? Sounds funny, but it really does exist. The so-called surebets are a betting option where you win in any case, no matter how the sporting event ends. That sounds very tempting, doesn't it? But what exactly are Surebets, how do they work and how can they be found? All this and more will be explained in this article. So that everyone gets the chance to make a sure profit with the Surebets.
What are Surebets?
Surebets are bets that are judged differently by different betting providers. By skillfully placing bets in a game with several exits, you can play different bets with different bookmakers in order to achieve a certain win. For this it is of course necessary to register with several providers in order to compare the different odds effectively. However, it must be said that it is always worthwhile to register with several providers at the same time. It doesn't matter whether it's Surebet bets or other betting options.
The surebets themselves have not existed in this form for that long. They only came with the age of the Internet. Because at that time it was simply too exhausting to run from betting office to betting office to compare the different odds. Quite apart from the fact that the transparency of odds as we know it today did not exist in the past. Today it is different. The Internet now makes it possible to compare odds conveniently from home with just one click, without having to leave the house. And this simple way of comparing the odds gradually gave rise to the idea of the Surebets as we know them today. However, it is important to mention that the profits of the Surbets are usually not very high and are in the 1-digit percentage range.
How are Surebets created?
Of course, the Surebets are mainly about making profits. However, you should also take a look at the background and, above all, how surebets come about in order to understand what they are actually about. The main reasons for this are:
The bookies have different opinions and information about the game.
The bookmakers take a certain position or organize an advertising campaign.
An error has occurred in the odds calculation or the bookies are adjusting their odds too late.
In most cases, it is the first reason that causes surebets to occur. Because in most cases the bookmakers don't coordinate when they calculate their odds and so it can often happen that one bookmaker may have better information than the other and then calculate his odds, no matter how different it is from the others. Every bookmaker has a different strategy and that is exactly what you should use for your surebets. So if you bet on three different outcomes (with different bookmakers), it is important to set them so that you end up with a plus.
The Surebets are first and foremost about placing 2 or 3 bets. This depends on whether the bet is only about winners and losers or whether a draw is also possible. But if you now assume that there are 3 possibilities, there is actually a way to definitely go home with a win. And that works quite simply by betting on one of the three betting options for each of three different bookmakers. So logically you will win one bookie and lose the other two. And the theory behind it is that the win exceeds the total bet of all bets placed. Thus one receives a net profit, which does not make one equally rich, but is just still a profit.
This is how Surebets are calculated
Of course you can go the easy way and get your Surebets calculated on the internet on platforms like BettingTips. However, it is still good to know how the calculation works.
When calculating a Surebets, the bottom line is that everything revolves around the profit factor. And so that a bookie can make a profit, the profit factor is normally higher than 100. If this number is less than 100, however, it is a Surebet. This is calculated as follows:
(100 : quote 1) + (100: quote 2) + (100: quote 3) = profit factor
Here is an example:
The BVB wins: Quota 2.40 for bookmaker A
The game ends in a draw: odds 3.30 at bookmaker B
Werder Bremen wins: Quota 4.20 for bookmaker C
(100: 2.40) + (100: 3.30) + (100: 4.20) = Profit factor
(41,67) + (30,30) + (23,81) = 95,78
You see, the profit factor here is below 100. That means you're dealing with surebets here.
You have to reckon with these risks
In the Internet or other sources of information one often reads of the great wealth of Surebets. But here you have to stay on the ground. As already mentioned, the profit margins for Surebets range between 1 and 3 %. This means that you will only really make big profits if you are on the road as a "high roller" yourself and make correspondingly large bets. Furthermore, it should be noted that you have to divide your entire sports betting capital among several bookmakers in order to have it available at the various bookmakers. This means that there has to be a lot of capital available in order to start with the Surebets at all. In addition, it can also happen that the maximum bet amounts vary from bookmaker to bookmaker and that the different bookmakers like to change their odds spontaneously. So it can easily happen that a Surebet bet quickly turns into a "I'm losing" bet. These are all things you have to keep in mind with this kind of bet.
All in all, you can say that you can make money with Surebet. However, it is wrong to say that this is easy money. As with all other betting options, knowledge, small change, speed and experience are of great value. For beginners it is therefore better to start with small amounts first, because it can come at the beginning certainly still to the one or other error. But here you should not be too strict with yourself, because everybody makes mistakes. The more often you play, the more experienced you become and the higher the stakes you can bet.Back to the Top News Newsfeed
