Lesson 04 – Be aware of betting just before event starts!
This is very common mistake made by various beginners and semi-intermediate arbers.
It is normal that odds are changing very frequently just before event starts (as many people want to catch last possibility to place their bets) and it results in showing up of multiple surebet opportunities, some of them being very lucrative.
Unfortunately it could happen that some bookmakers will temporary close the market just before event starts (like Pinnacle Sports) and you will end up with one bet placed somewhere else without possibility to cover other options.
That is why you need to double check at bookmakers sites when exactly event starts. You need to be absolutely sure about this, to have enough time to place bets at all bookies of interest.
General rule is not to place arbitrage bets (if you are not professional with years of experience), 10 minutes or less before event takes place. It is better to lose one or two arbitrages than to risk significant part of your budget.
However if certain arbitrage is very lucrative and it concerns one of so called premium leagues, available to bet “live” you might consider to place “valued” option before event, and if you fail to cover other options before the start you are secured to cover them at live-betting markets.
