A New Wave: Sports Arbitrage Trading
 by: Timothy Rohrer

Sports arbitrage trading is starting to spread across the internet like wildfire. If you havenít heard of it already, itís not a new concept but the possibilities seem endless. Sports arbitrage trading is not to be confused with gambling which carries risk.

Arbitrage trading does come with a risk, but the risk is much smaller than actual gambling or betting. Sports arbitrage trading is when a two bets are placed on the same sporting even with different bookmakers. Because the odds are different for each bookmaker, there is profit to be made, hence the arbitrage.

When starting out in sports arbitrage trading, many people donít have a clue as to how many bookmakers to use and how much money to place with each bookmaker and how to fund the bookmakers. Itís important to watch the bookmakers closely before placing any money with them. The reason for this is you are going to want to place your funds with the bookmakers that generate the most arbitrage trading opportunities. Obviously placing your money with bookmakers that have more arbitrage opportunities means more possibilities to trade on.

The next question a lot of people ask is how do I fund the bookmakers? There are two ways to fund the bookmakers. You can use either Neteller or Firepay, both of which are similar to a paypal account. Once these accounts are funded, you can then fund the bookmakers you have chosen to deal with.

Your money comes out of the bookmakers account the same way it goes in. Either back through Neteller or back through Firepay. Many bookmakers charge a small withdrawal feel that can easily be compensated for. Usually a lot of bookmakers will allow you to withdraw once per month free of charge.

While doing sports arbitrage trading, one important thing to remember is to have some kind of organized system so that you can log into bookmakers sites quickly. Usually a spreadsheet with all of the bookmakersí login information and passwords works well.

Finally, to maximize profits, you will need to start with a few bookmakers. Spread funds around the bookmakers and try to keep withdrawals down to once per month. Itís not necessary to know exactly what sporting events are coming up, but if you have some knowledge of big games and tournaments, usually this is a good time to trade and where you will see some high percentage arbs.
