This arbitrage calculator - also known as an arb calculator - automatically calculates how much you should stake on each outcome on a market you want to make an arbitrage bet on.
How to use the arbitrage calculator
- Using the Smarkets arbitrage calculator is simple. Just follow the below instructions:
- Input the total stake you want to risk.
- Input the odds for outcome 1 and the commission if on a betting exchange (if you are arbing between bookmakers set the commission value to 0).
- Repeat for the other outcomes you would like to arb (add new outcome if you require more than 4 outcomes on a market).
The arb calculator will then automatically inform you how much you need to stake on each outcome and your profit.
