I’ve read this forum for a while but never posted so please be gentle!
I think this is the most appropriate section for my post, but happy for it to be moved.
Ive often wondered about two things about how to ‘win’ when betting (football).
The first is a small percentage returns process. For example, how many times in a row could you win a bet that is 1/5. I have calculated if you started with £50 and aimed to return 20% profit each bet, you’d be up to near a couple of thousand if you could do is for 20 times or so. Of course if you lose, you’d be wiped out.
The other one is doubling up on evens (like the nightengale roulette system). So for example you bet £10 at evens. If you lose, you bet £20 on an evens, doubling it up each time if you lose. Is that a good way to go?
appreciate any thoughts!
