It’s not easy to make consistent profit from sports betting. This is mainly due to the fact that most bookmakers have a high margin on their odds on the one side and a very low pay-out percentage on the other side. It is estimated that about 98% (!) of the bettors are long-term losers. To beat the bookmakers and make profit in the long run, betting needs to be considered as a type of investment – not as just a hobby. In these betting guides, we will explain you how to achieve an expected return on investment of about 15%.
Single value bets
Our method is based on the principle of placing value bets. In other words, we are looking for bets where the odds do not represent the chance of a particular outcome correctly – and of course, in our favour. This way we can beat the bookmakers and make a decent profit in the long run. In order to achieve this goal, single type of betting is the way to go.
In the articles on our website, we will explain why single betting is the way to go if you want to turn betting into a profitable investment. Also, we will explain how we get value out of these single bets and beat the bookmakers.
In order to profit from this value, one needs to have an adequate stake sizing strategy, also referred to as bankroll management. Every month, a bettor needs to set aside a certain amount of money which he can afford to lose.
To make consistent profit with sports betting, one should approach it as a long-term investment, like a marathon.
With regards to managing your bankroll, it is important to pay attention to your stake sizing. We will elaborate on this further in our article about bankroll management.
