System #2 Straight Bets

Now that we’re talking about straight bets, I will show you a nice system to use when using straight bet. This simple system will help you to improve your winning ratio when you experience some bad days. The system is very easy to use and understand. In order to make a profit, all you have to do is to win only 2 games out of 6. Yes , that’s right, only 33% of your bets. Also, all your bets will be predetermined before you start a new series. You will know exactly how much to bet on each game. This system works better when you bet against the spread in football and basketball simply because the amount of your bets are predetermined. So, for the purpose of the following examples, all odds will be at 1.93 (-107). You can have this low juice at canbet.com. However, the regular odds at most sporstbooks are 1.90 (-110).
The System
In the 33% straight bet system, you will place a series of up to 6 bets. You will use the predetermined amount of x, 2x, 4x, 6x, 8x, 12.5x. All you have to do is replace the X by your unit size. So, if you start with \$10, the predetermined series will looks like:
\$10, \$20, \$40, \$60, \$80, \$125.
You will place only one bet at a time. So, one bet a day is the average. When you reach a profit in the series you collect your winnings and add it to your bankroll. Then, you start another series.
How it Works
You will only need to win 1 or 2 games within the series (depending where you are in the series) to make a profit.
Now, to clearly understand, let’s see how it works.
Let’s say the first day, you win your bet of \$10. You collect your profit and you start another series. If you lose your first bet, you will bet \$20 the second day and you will continue to bet following the predetermined amounts in the series ( \$10, \$20 \$40, \$60, \$80, \$125 ). You will do this until you make a profit within your 6 games.
Example 1:
Day(bet#) Amount W/L Profit Net Profit
1 \$10 L -\$10 -\$10
2 \$20 W +\$18.60 +\$8.60
Session is over. Profit: +\$8.60
Example 2:
Day(bet#) Amount W/L Profit Net Profit
1 \$10 L -\$10 -\$10
2 \$20 L -\$20 -\$30
3 \$40 W +\$37.20 +\$7.20
Session is over. Profit: +\$7.20

Example 3:
Day(bet#) Amount W/L Profit Net Profit
1 \$10 L -\$10 -\$10
2 \$20 L -\$20 -\$30
3 \$40 L -\$40 -\$70
4 \$60 W +\$55.80 -\$14.20
5 \$80 L -\$80 -\$94.20
6 \$125 W +\$116.25 +\$22.05
Session is over. Profit: +\$22.05
Example 4:
Day(bet#) Amount W/L Profit Net Profit
1 \$10 L -\$10 -\$10
2 \$20 L -\$20 -\$30
3 \$40 L -\$40 -\$70
4 \$60 L -\$60 -\$130
5 \$80 W +\$74.40 -\$55.60
6 \$125 W +\$116.25 +\$60.65
Session is over. Profit: +\$60.65
As you can see in example #4, with only 2 wins and 4 loses (33% winning rate), we end the series with a nice profit of \$60.65. Of course, you should understand that the main goal is to make a profit as fast as possible and not reach the 6th step. However, even if sometime you reach this 6th step, you know that you will make a good profit.

The Rules
1) Make only one bet a day following the predetermined amount in the series which are x, 2x, 4x, 6x, 8x, 12.5x. X is your unit value.
2) As soon as you make a profit, collect your winning and start a new series. That means if you win bet #1 or bet #2 or bet #3, you make a profit and stop the session.
3) When you start to win after bet #3, follow the predetermined amounts in the series until you show a profit. You will only need to win 2 games within 6.
4) If you didn’t win within the first 5 games (0-5), stop the series and accept the losses. You only have to recoup your losses and split your remaining bankroll in 4 parts. Then, you can start a new session with a new unit value.
In case of a losing session, the betting series is made to protect your bankroll. If you lose a series of 5 bets, you’ll lose about 11% of your entire bankroll. This leaves you with 89% of your bankroll.
Now, to see how it works with real result, here’s the results of a daily free picks from a handicapping service.
Day(bet#) Amount W/L Profit Net Profit
1 \$10 L -\$10 -\$10
2 \$20 L -\$20 -\$30
3 \$40 L -\$40 -\$70
4 \$60 W +\$55.80 -\$14.20
5 \$80 L -\$80 -\$94.20
6 \$125 W +\$116.25 +\$22.05
Note that after 6 bets, even if you’ve lost 4 of them (33% W/R), you’re up \$22.05. If you had made 6 straight bets of \$10 each, you would be down by -\$21.40. This system has increased your profits by more than 200%.
7 \$10 W +\$9.30 +\$31.35
You win your first bet so, you start a new series with \$10.
8 \$10 W +\$9.30 +\$40.65
Again here, you win your first bet. So, you keep betting \$10.
9 \$10 L -\$10 +\$30.65
10 \$20 L -\$20 +\$10.65
11 \$40 W +\$37.20 +\$47.85
You made a profit. So, you stop the series and start another one.
As you can see, by increasing your bets methodically according to the predetermined amounts, you save huge losses despite a 1-3 losing streak. Adding \$7.20 to your Bankroll, you’re now up \$47.85
12 \$10 W +\$9.30 +\$57.15
13 \$10 L -\$10 +\$47.15
14 \$20 W +\$18.60 +\$65.75
You made a profit. So, you stop the series and start another one.
15 \$10 L -\$10 +\$55.75
16 \$20 W +\$18.60 +\$74.35
You made a profit. So, you stop the series and start another one.
17 \$10 L -\$10 +\$64.35
18 \$20 L -\$20 +\$44.35
19 \$40 L -\$40 +\$4.35
20 \$60 L -\$60 -\$55.65
21 \$80 W +\$74.40 +\$18.75
22 \$125 W +\$116.25 +\$135
You end the series with a 6th bet. Your total profit for 23 days is \$135.
23 \$10 L -\$10 +\$125
24 \$20 L -\$20 +\$105
25 \$40 L -\$40 +\$65
26 \$60 W +\$55.80 +\$120.80
27 \$80 L -\$80 +\$40.80
28 \$125 W +\$116.25 +\$157.05
29 \$10 L -\$10 +\$147.05
30 \$20 W +\$18.60 +\$165.65
Even with a disappointing 13-17 finish (that is 43.3% W/R), you end up adding \$165.65 into your bankroll. If you would have use straight bet, you would have ended with -\$49.10.

Now, just to see how much money can be made with a better winning rate (60%), let’s take a look at one month of my daily pick #1 in 2004.
Let’s see what a \$100 bettor would have made.
Day(bet#) Amount W/L Profit Net Profit
1 \$100 L -\$100 -\$100
2 \$200 L -\$200 -\$300
3 \$400 W +\$372 +\$72
4 \$100 L -\$100 -\$28
5 \$200 L -\$200 -\$228
6 \$400 W +\$372 +\$144
7 \$100 W +\$93 +\$237
8 \$100 W +\$93 +\$330
9 \$100 L -\$100 +\$230
10 \$200 W +\$186 +\$416
11 \$100 W +\$93 +\$509
12 \$100 L -\$100 +\$409
13 \$200 W +\$186 +\$595
14 \$100 W +\$93 +\$688
15 \$100 W +\$93 +\$781
16 \$100 W +\$93 +\$874
17 \$100 W +\$93 +\$967
18 \$100 L -\$100 +\$867
19 \$200 W +\$186 +\$1053
20 \$100 W +\$93 +\$1146
21 \$100 L -\$100 +\$1046
22 \$200 W +\$186 +\$1232
23 \$100 L -\$100 +\$1132
24 \$200 W +\$186 +\$1318
25 \$100 W +\$93 +\$1411
26 \$100 W +\$93 +\$1504
27 \$100 L -\$100 +\$1404
28 \$200 L -\$200 +\$1204
29 \$400 W +\$372 +\$1576
30 \$100 L -\$100 +\$1476
As you can see, we end with a profit of \$1476 for a winning rate of 60% (18-12). However, you’ll notice that with a \$10 betting unit, you would have ended with a profit of \$147. Amazingly, you made more money (\$165) with a bad winning rate of only 43%.
But it’s perfectly normal. As far as you go in the series, bigger is your profit when you win. However, with a 43% W/R, chances to hit 5 loses in a row and lose the series are higher.
Important
1) The 33% straight bet system is designed to show a profit when you bet against the spread with traditional odds of 1.91 or 1.93. However, this system can show even more profit when you bet on moneylines (favorite or underdog).
2) If you want to use this system with the moneyline (like hockey, baseball, soccer) and with odds different than 1.91 or 1.93, make sure to calculate your wager to win the appropriate amount in the series. If you bet on a team and the odds are 1.33, instead of betting \$10 to win \$9.30, you must bet \$28.18. [9.30 / (1.33-1)].
3) For every bet with odds lower than 1.91 or 1.93 that you lose, you need to ad the additional losses. So, if you lost the \$28.18 bet, you need to ad (\$28.18 - \$10 = \$18.18) to the amount of what would be your normal series. Here, the next series amount would be \$38.18 (\$20 + \$18.18). So, if the next odds are 1.93, this win will not only bring back your losses but you will make a profit.
4) If you can afford to run 2 series or more at the same time, do it! This is how you’ll reach a nice regular monthly income with this system.
Conclusion
There is no doubt that the 33% straight bet system is a very good system. It helps to limit your losses and turn them into profit. Again remember:
1) Make only one bet a day following the predetermined amount in the series which are x, 2x, 4x, 6x, 8x, 12.5x. X is your unit value.
2) As soon as you make a profit, collect your winning and start a new series. That means if you win bet #1 or bet #2 or bet #3, you make a profit and stop the session.
3) When you start to win after bet #3, follow the predetermined amounts in the series until you show a profit. You will only need to win 2 games within 6.
4) If you didn’t win within the first 5 games (0-5), stop the series and accept the losses. You only have to recoup your losses and split your remaining bankroll in 4 parts. Then, you can start a new session with a new unit value.
5) Every month or so, evaluate your Personal Betting Bankroll, and
increase your 4 Betting parts if you feel comfortable doing so.
