This topic is a one, that is widely discussed in the majority of betting sites, as well as in all kinds of betting forums, blogs, and so on. Should I use a staking plan in my betting and if yes which one of the many I should go for? Which are the best staking plans, that would bring me as much profit as possible with my system? Isn’t flat betting better to use in the long term?- These are all questions which every single sports bettor has asked himself at a certain point of his betting “career”. Many of the bettors actually keep asking themselves/and the others/ on a so constant basis, that they keep on experimenting with the various staking plans forever. In this article we are going to try to give our humble contribution on this matter.
THERE ARE PROBABLY AS MANY STAKING PLANS, AS BETTING SYSTEMS OUT THERE, ALL OF THEM TRYING TO ACHIEVE THE SAME PURPOSES- MAXIMIZING THE PROFITS, WHILE MINIMAZING THE RISK AT THE SAME TIME. Now we think that both of these things are self-exclusive, and that such staking plans simply don’t exist. As bigger the potential of maximizing the profits- the bigger the risk of melting your betting bank, and on the contrary- as minimal the risk they are producing- the smaller the potential for bigger gains from a certain staking plan in general. For us this is just a fact of life, and nobody can change it, as nobody can change the laws and axioms behind math’s and common logic. The purpose of the bettor here is to choose a staking plan/if any at all/ that suits best the betting systems he uses, his tolerance to risk, and at last but not the least- his temperament and mentality. In this prospective there are no better or worse staking plans, than the others, there are just more appropriate and inappropriate staking plans. Here we are not going to discuss the details of any staking plan in particular. We are just going to mention the most popular and commonly used staking plans, and the general logic behind the different ones.
APART FROM THE SIMPLIEST LEVEL STAKING PLAN, WHERE YOU BET THE SAME UNIT WITH EVERY BET YOU MAKE, THERE ARE TWO BASIC TYPES OF STAKING PLANS, WHICH ARE MOST WIDELY USED BY THE BETTORS- PROGRESSIVE STAKING PLANS, AND REGRESSIVE STAKING PLANS.
Let’s just first have a look the progressive staking plans, as in our opinion this is the type, that the majority of bettors use.
THE IDEA BEHIND THE PROGRESSIVE STAKING PLANS IS THAT THEY ADVOCATE OF ICREASING THE STAKE AFTER A LOOSING BET AND DECREASING IT AFTER A WIINING BET. In other words- the premise behind this type of staking plans is chasing losses, adopting the presumption that the winner is always behind the corner, and any loosing streak can not last forever- there should be a winner, coming very soon. Now the advantages and the disadvantages of this type of staking plans should be obvious by now. The advantages are that even after a long loosing streak, you can recover your bank to the previous level very quickly, just with a couple of winners/with some staking plans even after only just one winner/. With them it doesn’t take long to recover huge loses and thus in terms of maximizing profits they are much better than the others. On the other hand the dangers behind them also should be obvious- a very long loosing streak can simply wipe out your whole betting bank, making you to start from the starch again. As should be clear by now that in deciding to use such kind of a staking plan you should well take into consideration the strike rate of the betting system/systems/ you use, as well ask the risk-reward ratio, you are averagely obtaining from your betting systems. As a general rule of thumb the shortest the odds you are betting on/thus the bigger the likelihood of the desired outcome/, the shorter the loosing streaks you should get. On the contrary the longer the odds- the less likelihood of such an outcome. In Internet, in the specialized sites about staking plans/there are plenty of them/ you should easily be able to find the so called simulators of betting streaks, from which you will get a good grasp about what kind of a loosing streak, betting at particular odds could bring. The key here is to have good money management and setting a stop loss, if necessary, which will be the topics of a specialized separate article in our site. Here we are just going to mention some of the most common types of progressive staking plans, used from the bettors. Anyone who requires a much detailed explanation of each of them should do a specialized search in Internet on the topic./there are some great betting sites which offer this/. So the most widely used types of progressive staking plans are all types of Martingale plans, Stop at a winner staking plan/ also known abbreviated as SAW staking plan/, Fibonacci staking plan,1326 staking plan, D’alambert, Pro staking plan,Labouchere staking plan, Retirement staking plan, XYZ staking plan, L.P. 28 staking plan, Recovery Staking Plans, Rolling doubles staking plan, Coup master staking plan and many others.
Now let’s have a look at the regressive staking plans.
THE IDEA BEHIND THE REGRESSIVE STAKING PLANS IS SIMPLY THE OPPOSITE OF THE ONE, ON WHICH THE PROGRESSIVE STAKING PLANS ARE BASED UPON- BASICALLY YOU INCREASE THE STAKE AFTER A WINNER, AND DECREASE IT AFTER A LOSER. This type of staking plans also have it’ advantages and disadvantages. Increasing the stake after a winner is based on the premise, that you take advantage of the growth of the bank achieved by the winning, and thus a long winning streak will give you an enormous progress in terms of capital. On the other hand, decreasing the size of the bet after a loser is meant to be as a safeguard of your bank, should you encounter a long loosing streak. This way you should always be at a good level of the bank, regardless of the type of runs of your betting. Again the advantages and disadvantages of this types of staking should be obvious by now. The advantages are that even a long losing run can not completely wipe your bank out, so you are always going to be left with some money for your betting activity in the bank, hoping for a recovery. The huge disadvantage of these staking plans is that the above mentioned recovery could take ages, and in some instances it won’t happen at all.. This type of betting this time is not about chasing loses, but rather preserving your capital when your systems go through rough times. Again which type of staking you will choose is completely up to you, there are no hard and fast rules about which is the better type. Probably it is worth mentioning again that the choice is dependant on the type of systems you are using, your average strike rate, the average odds of your bets/thus the likelihood of long loosing streaks occurring/, and at last but not the least- your tolerance to risk, your mentality and individual conception of the betting as a whole. Some of the most popular regressive staking plans are the following: Percentage of the bank staking plan, Secure staking plan, Up X down Y staking plan, Square root staking plan and many others.
In this articles, although not explaining in great details any of the staking plans/there is a huge plethora of betting sites, related exactly with this matter/, we have given you a good explanation about the basic premises, that stood behind the major types of them, as we pinpointed their importance as well. Which one you will prefer for your betting activity again is down to you, but we believe that every smart bettor at some point of his betting ”career” should at least consider studying thoroughly and trying some of them in his betting.
