### Intro

Bet System is a way to handle your stake. On many occasions, people tend to lose their minds on money management. They have no control over the money or winning stake.

You must be aware that money is your bullet, the bookie is your enemy. To kill the bookie, you need ammo; and you got to have money. You must take care of your money.

Besides money management, A Bet System also acts as a betting guide or called it “system.”

I would explain more in the individual system.

Advanced Sports Bet Systems – The Kelly Criterion

The Kelly Criterion Advanced Sports Bet Systems follows Kelly’s Criterion which was developed in 1956 by John L. Kelly. Kelly’s theory is designed to maximize the growth of your bankroll (e.g., a betting capital) over the long term by determining the optimal stake on a bet. It requires that your percentage-estimations are better than the bookmakers’ estimations. In case of that, the following formula will tell you the optimal amount of your fund to bet:

**Formula: (odds x estimation – 1)/(odds – 1)**

**Example:**

Betting capital: $1000

Odds: 5,00

Estimation: 0,25 (25 %)

(5,00 x 0,25 – 1) / (5,00-1) = 0,0625

This means that you should bet 6,25 % of your fund = $62,5

Many punters use Kelly’s formula. Others find it too risky because it requires a lot of your percentage estimations. Even if you manage to find value bets, bets with an overrated value can cost you some money, because the stake, found with the formula, is too high. You can use a fraction system,

e.g., divide the percentage with 2, which will minimize risk. Another possibility is to use Kelly’s formula to determine stake proportions, i.e., to help you find out how much to bet on game one compared to game 2. This can be done the following way:

According to the Kelly Formula, you should bet 4% of your fund on game 1 and 2% of your fund on game 2. If you are going to place for example 100$ on these two games, you should use 4/6 = 66,7 % = 67$ on game 1 and 2/6 = 33,3% = 33$ on game 2.

### Martingale Advanced Sports Bet System

The Martingale Advanced Sports Bet Systems follows the Martingale system which is an ancient and straightforward system popular in 1980s France. It is based on the probability of losing streaks and is usually applied to ‘even money’ bets.

**How does the Martingale system work?**

Every time you lose, you double your previous bet and continue doing so until you win. The theory behind this is that when you do eventually win, you will have covered your last chances and have one betting unit profit.

You start with one bet. If you win, you start again with one bet. If you lose, you double your bet. Each time you lose, you double your last lost bet. Eventually, you are bound to win. When you win, you will recover all your lost bets plus one unit profit against your initial wager.

Although infallible in theory, the Martingale system requires a large bankroll, has a meager return, and is a perilous one because of the maximum bet limits imposed by the betting companies. If you run out of money or reach the company limit, you can lose a lot with no chance to recover your losses.

The principle of the Martingale system is as follows:

**Martingale 1-2-4-8-16-32.**

Each time you lose, you bet double. Do this again until you win or until you play the highest bet. Then return to the lowest bet. Example:

- Bet $1 and win. Keep betting $1 until you lose, then bet $2.
- If you win the $2, return to $1. If you lose, then bet $4.
- If you win the $4, back to $1. If you lose, then bet $8.
- If you win the $8, return to $1. If you lose, then bet $16.
- If you win the $32, return to $1. If you lose, then also return to $1.
- And so on…

**Example:**

You’ve found a game with odds 2.0 for a home victory. You bet 100$, but you lose, as the game ends in a draw. Next time you bet 200$ on a game with odds 2.0. If you lose again, you must bet 400$ on a game with odds=2.0. If you win this time, you’ve placed a total stake of 100+200+400 =700$, and you’ve won 100$ for your efforts. The 100$ payoff is equal to what you would’ve earned on your first bet.

### The D’Alembert Principle Advanced Sports Bet System

The D’Alembert Principle Advanced Sports Bet Systems is another popular mathematical system which is named after Jean Le Rond d’Alembert, a French mathematician and physicist who was born in 1717.

His theory on the “Law of Equilibrium” supposes a balance of successes and failures of certain events if you consider a long series of these events. The d’Alembert, sometimes referred to as the “Pyramid System,” as you increase your bet by one unit after a loss and decrease your bet by one unit after a win. The sequence and amount raised or lowered can be varied to suit particular games and odds.

Each loss goes up one unit, each win go down one unit. Thus “hopefully,” you get back where you started, meanwhile, in the end, making $1 from each and every win. Example:

- First, bet $1. If you win, bet $1. If you lose, bet $2.
- If you earn $2, next bet $1. If you lose, bet $3.
- If you earn $3, next bet $2. If you lose, bet $4.
- If you earn $4, next bet $3. If you lose, bet $5.
- If you win $5, next bet $4. If you lose, bet $6.
- If you win $6, next bet $5. If you lose, bet $8.
- Etc.

You’d better set limits or will find yourself in outer space some day-but usually, D’Alembert is the most efficient system. For example, if you start at $1 and “return to base” every 100 plays, whether winning or losing-this is definitely better than flat betting at $50.

One typical sequence would be handled as follows:

1 bet) Bet 1 unit | 2 bet)Up to 2 units | 3 bet) Bet 1 unit | 4 bet) Up to 2 units | 5 bet) Up to 3 units | 6 bet) Bet 2 units |
---|---|---|---|---|---|

Lose, | Win, | Lose, | Lose, | Win, | Win, |

-1 units | +1 unit | +0 units | -2 units | +1 unit | +3 units |

Your “unit” can be equal to $1, $5, $25, or anything that you designate. If your group were $5, then you would be down $5 after the first wager. Your second stake is $10, and the win puts you up to a net of one unit or $5. Now you decrease your next bet after a win, back to $5. The loss of $5 puts you even at zero units.

The next bet of two units loses, so you increase to three units. Because you win this wager, you will now decrease your stake to two units. This wager wins, and you are up a total of three units thus far. There is no determined stop-win point with the system, so you must set one for yourself.

If one unit profit were excellent for you, then you would have won the sequence after the second wager (being up one unit) and quit or began a new chain. If two or three units were your objective, then the sixth bet would have sufficed.

The higher your objective win, the longer the chain will be. You should also pre-select a stop-loss point for any sequence that you play to help control losses. Notice that this sequence has three wins and three losses. When the wins and losses balance each other or are in equilibrium, then your net gain is equal to the number of wins in your sequence. This sequence has three wins that balance out three losses. The net profit is three units.

Please realize that if we had a losing sequence, a more aggressive unit size progression will work harder against you, losing money much faster. Because there are more ways to lose than a win on an even-money wager (18 wins versus 20 losses out of 38 trials), you will be on the losing side of the sequence more often.

Therefore, you may choose to portray a more favorable sequence here as an example. You are better off in the end, losing less with the smaller unit size than winning more with larger unit size. Let us examine something called a “tree diagram” of the d’Alembert system. For this example, we are using a $5 unit and will limit the progression to no more than five wagers:

### The d’Alembert Tree Diagram (5-bet progression using a $5 unit)

Total Probabilities of sequence ending events = 1.00 or 100%

The tree diagram is called that because it spreads out as it grows, just as the possibilities do. Starting with one wager, you can quickly see how all the options develop going up to five bets deep. Once you know what all the possible outcomes are, you can calculate the likelihood of each final event on the tree.

The terminal events are represented with rounded boxes and contain the probability of reaching that particular outcome. The chances of winning the first bet are easy to see. There are 18 ways out of 38 to win the wager; so, 18 divided by 38 equals 0.4737 or 47.37%. To win after the second bet, you would have lost the first, then won the second.

The chances of losing the first wager (20/38) times the chances of winning the second (18/38) are 24.93%. To calculate the probability of reaching a particular point on the tree diagram, just count the number of wins and losses along the way and apply them as exponents before multiplying everything together.

We can calculate the likelihood of winning a sequence by losing three bets and winning two bets, for example, as in win #5:

P(Lose) x P(Lose) x P(Lose) x P(Win) x P(Win) = P(Win #5), which is the probability that this exact sequence will occur.

If: P(Win) = 18/38 and P(Lose) = 20/38, for each spin, then: (20/38)³ x (18/38)² = P(Win #5).

P(Win #5) = 0.0327 or 3.27%

If you calculate all the probabilities of terminal events and add them together, they should equal 1.00 (or 100%). A final event is an event that causes the progression to end. A situation where the bettor is ahead after the first through fourth bets would end the progression. After placing the fifth stake, win, lose, or draw, we have decided to quit the sequence.

Take the amount of money that we are ahead or behind for each terminal event and multiple it times the probability of that event. Now sum these up to calculate the average money won or lost for this particular betting system:

**Average Total Winnings: +$4.56**

Win #1 ($5): | Win #2 ($5): | Win #3 ($5): | Win #4 ($5): | Win #5 ($5): |
---|---|---|---|---|

18/38 x $5 | (20/38) x (18/38) x $5 | (20/38)² x (18/38)² x $5 | (20/38)³ x (18/38)² x $5 | (20/38)³ x (18/38)² x $5 |

+$2.37 | +$1.25 | +$0.62 | +$0.16 | +$0.16 |

Lose ($25): | Lose ($25): | Lose ($25): | Lose ($75): | |
---|---|---|---|---|

(20/38)^4 x (18/38) x –$25 | (20/38)^4 x (18/38) x –$25 | (20/38)^4 x (18/38) x –$25 | (20/38)^5 x –$75 | |

–$0.91 | –$0.91 | –$0.91 | –$3.02 |

**Average Total Loses: <$5.75>**

Allowing up to a 5-bet progression with $5 units, the D’Alembert delivers $4.56 in wins minus $5.75 in losses, for a net loss of $1.19 per betting sequence. Another useful bit of information is the average number of spins, or bets per progression.

The summation of the number of spins times the probability of ending the progression in as many spins gives us this statistic. For the first four bets, the player must win to end the sequence.

Otherwise, the sequence is automatically terminated after the fifth bet. You will note, there is no final event in the third spin, so the probability of ending the betting progression is zero. Here is how the calculation would look:

P(1 spin) x 1 spin | P(2 spins) x 2 spins | P(3 spins) x 3 spins | P(4 spins) x 4 spins | P(5 spins) x 5 spins |
---|---|---|---|---|

!ERROR! illegal character '#' | !ERROR! illegal character '#' | 0 or 0.0 x 3 spins | !ERROR! illegal character '#' | !ERROR! illegal character '' |

0.4737 | 0.4986 | 0.0 | 0.2488 | 1.0740 |

An average number of spins for a 5-bet progression = 2.2951, or 2.3 turns.

We could have calculated the probability of all six terminal events in the fifth spin and added them together to get the probability of going to five spins. Because these events are mutually exclusive, it is easier to take 1.00 minus the chances of ending the progression in spins one through four. The probability of ending in spins one through four is [0.4737 +0.2493 +0.0 +0.0622] or 0.7852.

Therefore, we have 100% – 78.52%, which equals a 21.48% chance of ending the progression in the fifth spin. Taking the sum of all probabilities times the spins needed is about 2.3 average spins per progression for a 5-bet D’Alembert. If we lose $1.19 per progression and each progression averages 2.3 spins, then we are expecting a loss of almost 52 cents per bet.

Fibonacci Sequence Advanced Sports Bet System

The Fibonacci Sequence Advanced Sports Bet System goes like this – 1-2-3-5-8-13-21-34. Go up one step with each loss, down two steps with each win. Note that every win pays for the two losses before it.

Example:

- Bet $1 until you lose. Then bet $2.
- If you win at $2, then return to step 1. If you lose, then bet $3.
- If you win at $3, then return to step 1. If you lose, then bet $5.
- If you win at $5, then return to step 2. If you lose, then bet $8.
- If you win at $8, then return to step 3. If you lose, then bet $13.
- If you win at $13, then return to step 4. If you lose, then bet $21.
- If you win at $21, then return to step 5. If you lose, then bet $34.
- If you win at $34, then return to step 6. If you lose, return to step 1.

Recommended variant for the high roller: instead of going down two steps with each win, go down 1 step with each win until you win 2 in a row-then go down two steps. This variant may be as likely as any system to help you in the long run, and meanwhile, you get some tremendous wins and excitement.

There are numerous other variants. However, the usual Fibonacci is extremely unsatisfactory for the high roller-you lose often and never win big. Whereas for the player who prefers not to play 34 times his minimum bet if possible, it is debatable whether any Fibonacci is any better than Martingale, or just gives you two extra steps and then helps you fall off the cliff more often.

**Therefore, no Fibonacci is recommended for the cautious player.**

### 1-3-2-6 Advanced Sports Bet Systems

The 1-3-2-6 Advanced Sports Bet Systems follows a simple yet effective process derived from the name of this system which says it all. It is similar to the Paroli system. It is based on the premise that you can win four times in a row.

Your initial bet is 1 unit, the second 3 units, the third two units, and the fourth six units. Let’s assume that each unit is $10, and the odds are 1:1 – even money.

The first bet is $10. When winning, $10 is added to the $20 on the table, making the second bet $30. When winning again on the second bet, there would be $60 on the table. Of this, you take down $40, and the third bet is now $20. If the third bet wins, you will have $40 on the table to which you add $20, making a total of $60 for the fourth bet.

If the fourth bet wins, there would be a total of $120 on the table, all of which is net profit. Now all the bet is taken down, and you start the system all over again at $10. Also, each time you lose, at any level, you start all over again at $10.

If you lose the first bet, your loss is $10. The second level loss is $20 (because you added another $10). At the third level, a loss will give you a net profit of $20 (because you have taken down $40). At the fourth level, a loss leaves you breaking even (because you put back $20 out of the $40 taken down).

The attraction of this system is that you risk $20 at a chance of making $120 net profit. This means you can lose six times at the worst level (second bet), and with one win (a set of four wins in a row) get your money back.

### The 10% Advanced Sports Bet Systems

The 10% Advanced Sports Bet Systems follows the below principals. With each loss, go up 10% rounded to the nearest non-zero bet unit, with each win go down 10%. After you break even, then with each extra win, return halfway back to the lowest bet.

This is identical to D’Alembert except that if you hit $20, you then go up and down $2. If you hit $30, you then go up and down $3. Etc. Be sure to keep track of your Total since the last time you saw $1, and reduce bets by 50% after each win that causes a total net win or that breaks even.

The Ten Percent Solution is for D’Alembert players who never want to give up, or for “cancellation” players who want to go the limit with slightly less insanity. With the Ten Percent Solution, the higher you play, the more you might win-instead of being doomed to play higher and higher with less and less hope or reason.

The Ten Percent Solution can be efficient. Be warned, however, that this is not a low-risk strategy. It is only “lower-risk play for high-risk players.” The Ten Percent Solution is not for those who lack discipline.

Betting Strategy

A strategy is a long term plan of action designed to achieve a particular goal, most often “winning”. The approach is differentiated from tactics or immediate actions with resources at hand by its nature of being extensively premeditated, and often practically rehearsed.

There is a Chinese proverb “A good strategy is a good start of any work. A good start is half of the success of a job “.

What do sports betting related to strategy? How do we apply strategy to soccer betting? Is the question we have to ask ourselves.
