How much would you be willing to pay for a sports gambling system which had a record of 42-1? $100? $200? $500?
Hopefully your answer is “nothing,” because that is essentially what these systems are worth.
Anytime sports bettors see an unrealistic winning percentage claim they may be skeptical, especially when buying sports betting systems. If a player owns a betting system which picks winners at a 97.7 percent winning ratio, they sure do not need your money. They could simply place their bets from whatever island they own and not have to worry about anything rather than how to spend their money. Why deal with trivial things, like advertising, the time of putting up a website, or handling customers?
The Premise Behind Sports Gambling Systems
The one popular factor in all these sports betting systems is that they employ some sort of “double-up” factor and treat each sequence as a win or loss. For instance, say the Milwaukee Bucks fall into the system requirements.
You place a bet on the Bucks and they lose. You wager Milwaukee again the next game, but double-up your bet, so that if they win, you have made enough to offset the previous loss, and show a profit. If Milwaukee loses the second time you wager them, simply bet on them a third time, while betting enough to cover your previous two losses, plus show a profit. If Milwaukee loses the third time you wager on them? Just wager them again while doubling up your bet for a fourth time. You could lose seven straight bets on the Bucks, however, if you win the eighth, the system sellers will consider that 1-0 for the system, even though you were actually 1-7 on your wagers.
Some systems will tell you play up through four losing games at which point you write off the bet as a losing one. That is slightly better than those which do not have that stipulation.
These are usually referred to as “chase systems” because what you do is chasing your previous losses with hopes of coming up with a winning bet.
One problem bettors will encounter when using a Martingale, or double-up type of betting method, is that eventually they bet more than the sportsbook’s bet limit on a particular game or total. Try asking any sportsbook if they will accept a $5,500 bet on the total in a game played between Eastern Washington University and Montana, and get ready for the laughter to start.
The Current System Flavor of the Day
If you have seen systems advertised for sale lately, one of the more popular ones is a combination baseball/basketball package that claims an outrageous winning percentage.
The baseball portion of the system is almost similar to the Baseball Long-Term Revenge System we posted in the article Baseball Revenge Systems.There are some key differences, however, in that the system sellers ask you to always buy the +1.5 runs if the team you bet on is the underdog and to bet them on the money line as the favorite. As we said in the initial article, some bettors add stipulations, such as purchasing the 1.5 runs or doubling up after a loss in order to show a profit, which is what the system sellers need.
For NBA basketball, the system sellers require you to look for extended road trips of four or more games, which every team will have at least once or twice during the course of the season. You bet on the team that is traveling but buy 3 points if they are the underdog and play them on the money line if they are favored. As soon as win one bet on the team you cross them off your list and wait for the next lengthy road trip to start. Should you lose, just go on doubling your bet until you win a game and show a profit or are left with a hefty loss for the sequence. Certainly not the best advice a sports gambler could get, but that is the premise of the systems.
