A profit boost is when a sports book adds a percentage to your winnings. Profit Boosts have set criteria, such as a 50% boost on a $100 bet with maximum additional winnings of $250. With profit boosts, you can make bets that were not originally arbitrage into a bet that is arbitrage. This guarantees a profit.

For example, if you use a 50% profit boost on a line that is +100, the boosted odds become +150. If the opposing team on another book is -125 you took a game that was not arbitrage and made it into one.

Converting Profit Boosts

Use the Profit Boost Finder.

Filter to main lines only. Not required, only recommended.

This sets Market Type to Moneyline, Spread, and Total.

It also sets Market Segment to Full Game/Match.

Choose the sportsbook you have the Profit Boost with. Then enter the max bet amount, profit boost percent, and max extra winnings. The example below shows a 50% Profit Boost on DraftKings with a max bet of $100, and max extra winnings of $250.

After selecting the bet you want, viewing the bet slip provides all the details needed to properly hedge ensuring maximum profit. In this example, on DraftKings you would place the $100 Profit Boost on the Red Wings moneyline with original odds of +235 boosted to +353. Then you would place a Hedge Bet on Bally or Elite of $321 on the Flames moneyline at -245. Either outcome gives you a profit of $31.

Clicking the information icon displays further details explaining exactly how you profit $31 no matter the outcome of the event.
