What is an Arbitrage Bet?
Arbitrage bets, “arbs,” “safe bets,” or hedge bets, are multiple bets on the same event that guarantee a profit. Using OddsShopper, you will find that different sportsbooks offer different odds for the same game line or prop bet. In some cases, these differences are large enough that you can bet both sides and come out ahead, no matter the outcome.
