Forks in bookmakers' offices: a description of the strategy
A bookmaker's plug is a case when in two different bookmaker's office’s odds for opposite outcomes of the same event are set so that it is possible to bet on both and at any outcome remain in the winnings.

Examples of opposite outcomes:
- P1 - P2: victory of team 1 and victory of team 2 (mostly relevant in singles sports).
- TM (2.5) - TB (2.5): total less than 2.5 goals and total more than 2.5 goals.
- F1 (-1.5) - F2 (+1.5): minus handicap of team 1 and handicap of team 2 with the same value.
Suppose, before a soccer match one bookmaker office gives a bet on TB 2.5 (total more than 2.5 goals) with odds 2.11, and the opposite bet on TM 2.5 (total less than 2.5 goals) with odds 2.07. This is the case when with any number of goals in the match (TB 2.5 or TM 2.5) the player who has bet on both outcomes will remain in profit.
