Scraping data from betting sites is a good way to make money because you don’t have to sell data you obtained, but only use that data in your favor.
It doesn’t matter what sports you like; chances are you or someone you know at least once earned some money betting on their favorite team. You might’ve won because of good luck or knowledge of the sport, but probably you’ve also lost because you can’t always guess what’s going to happen in the future. But what if you could make a profit regardless of the match outcome? This is called ‘surebet’ and isn’t new in the gambling world.
Surebet is a situation when a bettor can make a profit regardless of the outcome by placing one bet per each outcome with different bookmakers. This happens when different bookmakers have different odds for the same game due to either bookmakers’ differing opinions (statistics) on event outcomes or errors. We can find those errors by scraping different bookmakers.
There much easier ways to do sports betting arbitrage that doesn't involve web scraping. You can do Swagbucks and Gambit.
You can get free 100 Gambit by signing up here: Gambit Rewards
- This way you earn daily SB requirement (Tier 1). And if you have enough Gambit to transfer to SB, you can get Tier 2.
You slowly build up your hedge betting churn, and you make $250/mo.
That’s where I’m at but other people make more if you can withdraw from Gambit to SwagBucks Tier 2 every day ($10/day so closer to $300 per month).
I don’t condone sports betting, but with hedged sports betting, you do lose a little on the actual bets, but you make it up on the daily rewards from SwagBucks which makes this profitable.
