What Are Sure Bets
Sure betting, also known as sure win, arbitrage bets or arbitrage betting, is a sports betting strategy that guaranties profit by covering all possible outcomes of an event and placing specific size bets with different bookmakers on all outcomes in a way that the total payout is the same regardless of the actual outcome.

There are a few risks involved in “Sure betting”:
- Odds Errors: Most bookmakers have the option to cancel bets originated from errored odds at any time, leaving the bettor with uncovered outcome and a risk of losing.
- Bookie Rules: Different bookies have variations in rules when it comes to match outcomes (like when a Tennis player retires), so you need to make sure your bets will cover all outcomes.
- Time to bet: Odds can change before you can cover all options, so always verify latest odds on bookmakers’ websites before placing a bet.
While every effort is made to ensure odds accuracy, it is your responsibility to check site odds before placing a bet.
Different bookmakers have different betting rules. Please check site rules before placing a bet.
Before placing a bet with an unknown bookmaker, we recommend you review the selected bookmaker safety & quality.
