Sports Betting Systems

Most sports enthusiasts have taken the opportunity to put their money where their mouth is, and the really lucky ones have been right! For serious wagers, however, one can't leave it to luck. Sports betting systems are one way to get around the chance factor, if one can believe the adverts. Some of the claims are outrageous, yet sports betting systems consistently sell well and the testimonials are hard to ignore. So how can you evaluate them and separate the wheat from the chaff?

Well, in the long run, it's mostly chaff. Oh, I know, I know ... what about that guy that supposedly made 36 times his money on that last basketball match between the Lakers and the Bobcats? He'd have never even thought about betting on that game without his trusty sports betting system telling him what to do - he doesn't even follow basketball! And just in time for the playoffs, you can get his system for a mere arm and a leg so you can try it at home.

Most experts agree that it is very difficult to consistently and predictably make guaranteed money with sports. Betting systems claim otherwise, but you're dealing with a fixed number of outcomes and questionable counting on the victories. Any team can only come in four ways: winner, loser, up or under. The up or under refers to whether or not the score came in as predicted. Most systems take these options and recommend a progressive betting practice, usually some version of the Martingale. The Martingale is a betting system that has been around for years and readily available, for free, to punters willing to take a chance.

The Martingale system recommends doubling your bets after each loss. This way, when you win you cover your loss amount and quickly get back to positive territory. This is counted as a win, even if your first bet lost. In fact, even if your second, third, and fourth bets were losers, if on the fifth bet you win enough to cover all of those losses, then the system is counted as a winner. This is how they can claim that the system works in ridiculous numbers of series , because sports betting systems count it in a series until you win, not game by game as you or I would count. With all the doubling up amounts to follow the system, you can easily exceed your resources and be in real trouble. So ignore the hype - sports betting systems are, for the most part, best avoided.
