Flat betting strategy
A fixed bet amount is one of the best and safest ways to approach a game. Its essence is that you put the same amount of money on each bet, regardless of the event you choose. This system is a must for beginners!
Considering that novice players are not able to determine risks and control emotions, only bets in equal shares are able to show the player's direction vector, as well as the index of his success. Yes, such a strategy is not flexible enough and with its constant use for a profitable player, you will not receive additional profit. But when dealing with bets, the main thing is to minimize losses, and at first it is flat that is best suited for this.
Despite the fact that flat is perceived as a unified financial betting strategy, it is divided into several types, which we will now discuss.
Types of flat betting strategy
Static or classic flat is the safest betting strategy
. The static flat
rate is always equal to 1% of the bank. When you play in this way, the bankroll will grow and decrease very slowly.
This strategy is used by many professional bettors. The amount of the bet on the academic flat varies within 1-3 percent of the bank. In this case, the bettor himself determines the size of the bet, depending on how confident he is in its passability. Often, players play on academic flat as follows: odds up to 2.00 - 3% of the bankroll, odds from 2.00 to 4.00 - 2% of the bankroll, odds over 4.00 - 1% of the bankroll.
The strategy is similar to the academic flat, with the only difference that the amount of bets here is much higher. The advantage of an aggressive flat is that you can quickly increase your bankroll using it, but if a series of unsuccessful bets follow, the drawdown of the bankroll will be very painful.
Pros and cons
- simplicity and availability;
- developing self-discipline;
- convenient statistics of rates;
- combination with other strategies.
slow growth to the bankroll;
- tangible earnings are possible with large investments.
Once you have set your bankroll and bet percentage, stick to these parameters.
Don't change the amount every day, week or even month.
Remember, fixed rates are a long-term betting investment method, so it's important to understand that there will be ups and downs along the way.
In addition, the bankroll can fluctuate depending on the sports calendar.
This means that you are more susceptible to volatile fluctuations when the calendar is occupied by several sports at once.
This situation leads to an increase in the volume of bets in spring, winter or autumn, when football, basketball and hockey competitions are held actively, in contrast to the summer, during which there is an order of magnitude less events.
As a result, bettors only need to adjust their bankroll once a year.
The best time for this is summer.
By this time, the major football leagues were long over, as were the championships in other sports.
Summer is considered a vacation for sports bettors.
This is when players can relax and prepare for the upcoming season.
This is also the perfect time to tweak tactics.
For example, let's say you started with a $1,000 bankroll at the start of the football season in September.
You have succeeded in the last 9 months and turned that $1,000 into $1,500.
When you started with $1,000 in September, your bet was 3%, which equates to $30 per event.
Now that you have increased your bankroll to $1,500, simply multiply the new value by 0.03.
It turns out $45 - the correction value. Important!
Now, let's say you started with $1,000 in the fall, and the bankroll went down to $500.
Instead of continuing to bet 3%, it would be a good idea to change the stake to $15.
