aRbs: Find Arbitrage Opportunities for Sports Matches

Money doesn't grow on trees. Arbitrage opportunities do. Find the best arbitrage opportunities (arbs) in sports matches through <https://www.oddschecker.com/>. This package allows the user to input the URLs of <https://www.oddschecker.com/> subdomains in order to find any opportunities for arbitrage. The majority of the functionality is implemented using the function \code{get_arbs()}. This function first finds all subdomains of the URL entered, then filters to only include those that look like event betting pages. Next, odds are scraped from the various bookmakers listed for that event, before returning combinations of bookmakers, odds or outcomes that could be used for arbitrage. Bets placed subsequently are done so at bettor's risk and we take no responsibility for losses that may occur from use of this package. Odds subject to instantaneous changes.
