You really need to ask Kidpoker about these as he has much more experience of finding them.

Personally I've never found a middle better than half a point that hasn't been too far away in odds for me to go for. By that I mean it could have been -105 and -105 which loses too much money for my liking. I prefer an exact match or narb of say -105 and Evens.
One thing I have found is that Murphy's law definitely applies in all cases.
If you want the result to hit the spread in order to profit from a middle - it never does.
However, whenever you find a huge arb, it always pushes!
The best place to find middles is definitely with football props, where a difference of for eg +/- 50 yds against +/- 40 yds can regularly be found.
Yes, KP seems to extract arbs from those places that most humans fear to tread!
I also discovered via the power of the information super highway that it's claimed that
Each 1/2 pt on the total = 5c juice
Each 1/2 pt to the spread = 9c cents juice.
For h/t 1/2 pt on the total = 9c juice
For 1/2 pt on the spread = 14c juice.
Each 1/2 pt off of a 7 pt spread = 15c
Each 1/2pt off of a 3 = 20c
Each 1/2 pt of of an 8 or similar = 2c.
On totals 1/2 pt = 4-5c
Certain numbers like 35,38,42,48 are worth more.
All figures approximate
Now whether any of that has any basis in reality or is just theoretical I have no idea. I also don't know if it can be applied to middles or not. It just goes shows how complex this middling lark can be.
