Successful Sports Betting Systems

by J. Kim

When it comes to sports betting systems there are plenty one can use and all designed to help increase the chances of winning when places bets over the short term period. However, what one needs to realize is that these kinds of systems are not designed to increase the chances of you winning over the long term.

If you are intending to use such systems you need to be aware that many increase the risk of you losing more money rather than winning it. One type of sports betting system which can help you to win over the short term period is the one known as the Martingale but over the long term will cause you to lose much more.

When you use this system after each bet that has been placed and where you lose you need to then double the amount you place on the next bet. So if you placed a \$5 bet on a team to win a particular game and they then lose, the next game that you bet on that they play you put a \$10 bet down. If after this game they then lose you double your bet again this time to \$20 and continue to double your bets until you finally win. Only after you have won can you then return to starting with just placing a \$5 bet.

However as long as you understand the risks involved then using betting systems can be fun and there are plenty of others ones available that are much less risky than the one we have mentioned above. But with any of these sports betting systems you need to be aware that you are only going to be winning over the short term rather than the long term.

The system we have discussed above is known as a negative progressive system and there are others which are classed as being positive progressive sports betting systems. These are designed where you place bets and increase them only when you are actually winning and so give you the opportunity to take full advantage of any winning streak and will end up making you more money than if you do flat betting.

One of the most simple positive progressive systems to try is the one that after each bet which you win you then increase your next bet placed by 50%. So if the first bet you place was for \$6 and you then win then next bet you place you increase the \$6 by 50% so the next bet is \$9. Then if you again you increase the \$9 bet by 50% and so the next bet you place is either for \$13 or \$14. However, as soon as you lose a bet you immediately start from the beginning again by just placing the \$6 bet.

The great advantage that this betting system has over the other is that you bets only increase when you are winning which means when you do lose you only use one unit at a time. But if you happen to be winning then you have more money to increase your bets with but also you are retaining some of your winnings as well.

Whilst these types of sports betting systems can help you to win over the short term they are no guarantee that you will win. Also you need to be aware that there are plenty of people who are offering systems for you to use which are completely useless and are just after your money. Rather you should think seriously considering the second sports betting system we have suggested above.
