Money Management and Bet Size

Money Management and Bet Size

Properly managing your bankroll is one of the most important factors when attempting to become a successful sports investor. Following two standard rules can help reduce your risk of ruin and maximize the effectiveness of a solid sports betting system.

Flat Betting

We recommend a flat-betting system where your bet size is the same for each wager. Flat betting allows you to ride the ups and downs of investing and minimizes the the chance of going broke during a losing streak.

Unit Size

While experienced investors sometimes bet 4%-5% of their entire bankroll per unit, we take a more conservative approach and recommend a unit size of 1%-3%, especially for beginners, of your bankroll.
