I am sure that if you are still reading this post after the initial warning, you must already know what betting systems are. However, it never hurts to review them a bit. In a nutshell, they are general methods that we hope to use to improve the performance of our sports predictions. In other words, they are systems for winning sports bets on a recurring basis.
Of course, any regular reader of our blog is well aware of our motto: there is no such thing as a foolproof system or strategy. However, there are some aspects that can bring us closer to the goal of having profitable betting systems. In addition, now we have a unique offer in the market for both new and registered users with which you can put these sports betting systems into practice: 5 $s free every week!
The 5 most interesting betting systems
Martingale betting system
All hands on deck! Here comes one of the flagships of betting systems: the Martingale. Created from the casino game of roulette, it has gradually been adapted to other games such as sports betting, as it is mainly a betting system based on the control and use of the balance. For the Martingale betting system it is not necessary to have an excellent knowledge of the sport you want to bet on.
The Martingale in sports betting works in the same way as in other casino games, from which it originates as we have already mentioned. The way it works is simple:
You place a bet. If you win, you place the bet again. If you lose the bet, the bet amount is doubled. Once you get a winning bet, the cycle starts. In this way, the losses from previous bets are recouped with a winning bet. Simple, isn’t it?
Like all these supposedly infallible systems for winning bets, there are a series of black spots: if the negative streak is extended, you will have to have a very high banking. And, as we were saying, that long streak, in addition to needing that high amount to bet, will be at 0 when it is successful. This is a way, in this way, to avoid losses. For all these reasons, it is recommended that this type of betting system is not used by newcomers to the world of betting. If this is your case, it would be more interesting for you to review the tips for making combined bets or the basic tips for betting if you are just starting out.
The 2/3 betting system or double betting system
This is one of the classic profitable betting systems. It has been used for many years in England, the birthplace of sports betting, and, of course, it has also reached Spain. The system is simple:
This betting system is based on the selection of 3 sporting events. From there, 3 combined bets of two selections are made, alternating the events. In this way, if 2 of these three bets are successful, you will make a profit. Of course, there will be times when this is not the case, but in the long run it is a reliable sports betting system.
For the 2/3 betting system or double betting system to work correctly, it must be implemented by betting the same amount of money and with events that have a multiplier of around odds 2.
Doubtful? The best thing to do is to demonstrate it with numbers. We will make an example of a double betting system with Champions League matches (not Spanish so there is no misunderstanding). We choose the victories of 3 of the usual favourites: Bayern Munich, Juventus and Manchester United.
- 10 bet on Bayern and Juventus to win (odds 1.75).
- 10 bets on Juventus and United wins (odds 1.75).
- 10 bets on United and Munich to win (odds 1.75).
- Investment: $30 ⇒ Prize for winning 2 out of 3: $35 ⇒ Profit: $5.
There are other versions of this betting method that can be interesting if you like to bet on favourites. This is the variant of the 4/5 betting system. We would make the combinations with the same scheme as the traditional 2/3 betting system but between the 5 selections. Matching 4 out of these 5 combinations… Profit! It must be taken into account that the odds are lower for the favourite teams, so we extend the bets to 5.
Fibonacci Betting System
The Fibonacci betting system is based on a classic numerical sequence whose creator gave this strategy its name. We have a ⇉ post that analyses the Fibonacci betting system ⇇, but in summary it consists of betting a higher stake each time following this Fibonacci progressive strategy.
Again, a numerical example to make it clearer. The Fibonacci sequence is 0, 1, 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 21, 34, 55, 89, 144, 233… These amounts would be the stake you should bet. A good bet would be a draw with odds over 2.50. Do you want to know more? Best not to make any more spoilers: we recommend you to read the post about the Fibonacci system. We explain its pros and cons.
Labouchere system or cancellation system
We could say that the Labouchere system is a betting system similar to the Martingale but with loss limitation. But let’s explain what it consists of:
The Labouchere betting system consists of betting following a cycle created through a series of numbers that will be cancelled as you hit and added if you lose that bet. The first bet must be the sum of the first and last numbers of the series we have created. If we win, we cross both numbers out of the series. If we fail, then it is added to the series of numbers. Relax, it may seem a bit complicated in writing, but with an example it will be easier to understand.
Amount wagered Result The series is 1-2-3-4-5-6. Accumulated:
- 7 units (1+6) Won x-2-3-4-5-x 7.
- 7 units (2+5) Lost x-2-3-4-5-x-7 0.
- 9 pcs (2+7) Loss x-2-3-4-5-x-7-9 -9.
- 11 pcs (2+9) Won x-x-3-4-5-x-7-x 2.
- 10 units (3+7) Loss x-x-3-4-5-x-7-x-7-x-10 -8.
- 13 units (3+10) Won x-x-x-4-5-x-7-x-7-x-x-x 5.
- 11 pcs (4+7) Won x-x-x-x-x-5-x-x-x-x-x-x-x 16.
- 5 units Loss x-x-x-x-x-5-x-x-x-x-x-x-5 11.
- 10 units (5+5) Won x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x 21.
In this way, we will have finished the cycle once we have all the numbers of our original series cancelled. Isn’t it not so difficult to understand the Labouchere system with an example?
The Patent system is one of those betting systems that is almost unknown, as many betting experts prefer other systems that are easier to implement such as Trixies. However, if done correctly it offers more chances of winning. Let us explain how it works, maybe you will be encouraged to use the Patent system next matchday.
It is a betting system of 7 bets with 3 predictions: a single bet per prediction, 3 combined bets of two predictions and a combined bet with all three predictions. The great advantage of this Patent betting system is that there is little risk involved with the single bets, which can make a profit or, at the very least, reduce losses with a single success.
