The modern era has gifted us many things. We use the word gifted because unless you’re the individual dedicating years of their life, making irreversible sacrifices for brief breakthroughs and advancements in the tech space, then that is exactly what it is for you. A gift. A privilege by way of another. From Android or iOS to smart phones and seamless streaming of anything and everything. Glory to those forward thinking, ridiculously intelligent human beings, because if it weren’t for them, you wouldn’t be able to virtually witness the great Wildebeest migration over the Serengeti, through a 4K television in the comfort of your lazy boy in your apartment in West London. It’s the small things in life.

Speaking of which. Some of these crazily spectacular individuals came up with something called an arbitrage calculator. What are arbitrage calculators? Well, you wouldn’t be reading this if you weren’t into arb trading or sure bets. So, without further ranting, let’s establish what they are and how they can benefit you.

There are several ways to calculate arbitrage opportunities, but if you’re not into maths, an arbitrage calculator is a perfect way for you to calculate arbitrage strategies and outcomes.

- You need to enter the odds for the sports arbitrage opportunity. You may use decimal or fractional odds. (You do not need to enter both!)
- Enter the total amount that you wish to stake on the arb in the "Total Stake" box.
- Click the button marked "Calculate Stakes".
- You’ll then see how much to stake on each selection, the profitability of the arb (expressed as a %), your actual profit (expressed in ?), and the total return.

- If you enter fractional odds, the corresponding decimal odds will be displayed in the decimal odds box.
- If you enter fractional odds but then wish to change the details, you should edit (or remove) the fractional odds because if both sets of odds are present, the fractional odds prevail.

The benefits of an arb calculator are extremely valuable. As most of you will know, arbitrage opportunities don’t last very long. In some instances, they’re gone is a few seconds. That is why using a calculator is important because it will make up for time spent on calculations (doing the math can be a timeous task) and generate strategies for you. Time is of the essence when it comes to sports arbing and arb calculators prove to be very convenient.

An arb occurs when your winnings are greater than an investment. Arbs are calculated as percentages and usually, the percentage isn’t the same as the return on investment. An arb percentage is calculated by dividing 1 by each set of odds and then adding them together. Let’s say one set of odds is 1.30 and another is 8.20. The arb percentage calculation will work as follows:

- 1 ÷ 1.30 = 76.923%
- 1 ÷ 8.20 = 12.1%

Arb calculation: 76.923% + 12.1% = **89.023%**
