Consideration of the close odds feature

Today we’d like to tell you in detail about one important feature of our arb service which called close odds.

Working principle of the close odds feature

The close odds function clearly demonstrates the difference in the odds for those bookmakers that accept bets on a particular outcome of the event. We have created it in order that you don’t have to spend too much time searching manually for suitable offers for this or that outcome in dozens of bookmakers’ lines.

As you can see in the below screenshot, this feature is integrated directly into arb calculator for the convenience of our users.

The process of working with close odds is pretty simple – you don’t need any additional knowledge and skills. The system itself will analyze bookmakers’ lines and provide offers on the odds for the particular outcome in the form of a convenient drop-down list. This will allow making a choice of suitable odd and place a bet in a matter of seconds.


Redirection from the calculator to required event or directly to coupon stake (betslip) of bookmakers will greatly help to speed up the process of betting. This feature is also integrated into arb calculator and is displayed as a target icon.

Why do you need this feature?

The close odds function can be useful to arbers for several reasons:

1. If you have no possibility to bet at the initially chosen bookmaker (the odd has changed, your account is restricted at this bookie, etc.) – you will be able to select from a list another most suitable odd and place a bet.

2. With this feature, you can understand how much this or that bookmaker overstates the odd on a particular outcome of the event. In order to do that you just need to compare the quotes of all bookmakers from the list.

3. You can choose from a list of bookies although not the highest odd, but the highest maximum bet. Thus, you’ll bet more and, therefore, the income from your arb may be higher.


As you can see, the close odds feature greatly facilitates the work with arbitrage betting because it allows getting the necessary information on the best bookmakers’ offers on a particular outcome of the event just in one click.
