SOCCER SURE BETS – Money in the Bank

Welcome to Bettingformat’s Soccer Sure Bets page! As you saw from the several entries you just scrolled through, there are numerous opportunities to place bets on soccer games that are guaranteed to earn you a profit. As an added benefit of our odds comparison feature, we will inform you when we detect the conditions that allow for a sure bet (also known as arbitrage bets, or the whimsical wonder bet). In order for the sure bet to work properly, it is essential that you place your bets exactly as indicated by our experts. You will need to place bets with two, and often three, bookies to ensure a profit, so it’s a good idea to enroll beforehand so you can place your bets without delay. Luckily, we have detailed information about all of the bookmakers listed on our site and very often you will find attractive enrollment bonuses within our reviews. Take the time to read this article carefully, because while a sure bet is a mathematical certainty, it can also vanish very quickly.

You can input your desired wager into the top box and we will calculate the rest!


Sure bets work well in soccer thanks to: a) the distinct possibility of draws and b) the differing opinions of bookmakers. With this in mind, you will need to wager on all three outcomes. That’s fairly obvious, the tricky part is to figure out how much to stake on each bookie. Our odds experts provide you with the exact amounts you need to put on each bet in order to secure a sure bet. We also include a field where you can enter your stake and adjust your wagers accordingly. You can boost your profit margin by using a betting voucher on one of the bets. Follow the links below to learn more about no-deposit betting vouchers and other bookie bonuses.

  • If you would like to learn more about different wagers and betting strategies, we encourage you to visit our Betting School.

How the sure bet is calculated

No matter the result of the game, the profit is still over € 100. Admittedly, your maximum profit from this match isn’t exactly heart-stopping, but it is a win nonetheless. Depending on how good a sure bet is, we’ve seen profits move up to 5%. Consider the matchup in the screenshot above: FC Middlesborough are heavily favored to beat Stoke City. We see that we must place bets through 1xbet to cover the Tip 1, VBET to address the tie option and tipico covers our Tip 2. Our sure bet engine tells us exactly how we must divide our € 100 wager among the three bookmakers. When we do that, we can sit back and cheer for any outcome because we know we’re going to win.

Provider Bet Amount € Bet placed on Odds Profit
1XBET 51.06 Tip 1 1.96 100.08
VBET 28.92 Draw 3.46 100.06
tipico 20.02 Tip 2 5.00 100.10


A sure bet is only a sure bet if, and only if, each bookmaker pays the win. In the normal course of events, this should be the case. However, bookies are a clever bunch and they watch the odds like hawks. If they see unusual betting action, they can and will call off the bet. When this happens, you are left holding the bag, because your bets are no longer hedged. Please keep in mind how much you could lose if one of the bookies cancels the bet. It is their right to protect their business. If you can cope with the possible loss, then have fun and full-speed ahead! As always, GOOD LUCK!
