What is the difference of single betting to arbitrage?

  Single betting is a bet placed on just one selection or market, allowing you to earn some profit by guessing just one match correctly. When placing single bets, your return will not depend on the outcome of several matches, so you can cash in as soon as you have guessed one selection correctly. Because they feature higher winning percentages than accumulator bets, single bets are recommended by all betting experts as the safest way towards long-term profit. Seeing that potential returns are somewhat lower than those resulting from accumulator bets, single bets are usually placed at odds close to evens. While on the other hand Arbitrage is the trading technique, whereby exactly offsetting positions are taken in a market simultaneously but at different prices. The difference in price represents an immediate risk-free arbitrage profit that is independent of the subsequent movement in price of the instruments traded. Arbitrage has long been used in financial markets, which can be difficult for non-professionals to access.
