two-way sure bets

What is two-way sure bets (2 - legs)?

The most popular combinations in cross-markets are two-way sure bets and three - way sure bets. In two-way sure bets combinations, you can cover a visiting-team victory (2) and a draw or home team to win (X1) or the opposite: home-team victory and a draw or visiting team to win (X2).

Two-way sure bets /Example 1/

 
Liverpool (1) 2.30 100.00€ Bookmaker A
Real Madrid (X2) 1.85 124.32€ Bookmaker B
Let’s calculate:

Liverpool (1) 2.30 100.00€ Bookmaker A
Real Madrid (X2) 1.85 124.32€ Bookmaker B

1) If Liverpool win 2.3*100 = 230€;
230 – 100 – 124.32 = 5.68€ profit.

2) If Real Madrid win or it’s Draw 1.85*124.32 = 229.99€
229.99 – 100 – 124.32 = 5.67€ profit.

At the end, you will still win 5.67€.

Two-way sure bets /Example 2/

Liverpool (Over 2.5) 1.85 100.00€ Bookmaker A
Real Madrid (Under 2.5) 2.35 78.72€ Bookmaker B
Let’s calculate:

1) If Liverpool win with more than 2 goals 1.85*100 = 185€;
185 – 100 – 78.72 = 6.28€ profit.

2) If Real Madrid win with less than 2 goals 2.35*78.72 = 184.99€
184.99 – 100 – 78.72 = 6.27€ profit.

At the end, you will still win 6.27€.

Two-way sure bets /Example 3/

Liverpool (AH1,-1.5) 1.78 100.00€ Bookmaker A
Real Madrid (EH2,+2.0) 2.50 71.20€ Bookmaker B

AH1,-1,5 Home team to win with 2 goals or more
EH2,+2.0 Away team to win, match to be a draw or to lose with one goal margin.

Let’s calculate:

1) If Liverpool wins with 2 goals or more 1.78*100 = 178€;
178 – 100 – 71.20 = 6.80€ profit.

2) If Real Madrid wins, draw or lose with one goal margin
2.50*71.20 = 178€
178 – 100 – 71.2 = 6.80€ profit.

– If the result for Liverpool vs Real Madrid is 0:0 the match is draw, so look at case 2)
– If the result for Liverpool vs Real Madrid is 1:0, Real loses with one goal margin, so look at case 2)
– If the result for Liverpool vs Real Madrid is 2:0, Liverpool wins with 2 goals and more, so look at case 1)
– If the result for Liverpool vs Real Madrid is 0:1, Real wins, so look at case 2)

At the end, you will still win 6.80€.
