# How to win a bet with mathematics

Some sports betting enthusiasts argue that mathematics in betting is not needed at all. But later they begin to realize that they were bitterly mistaken, having lost a large number of times their gambling banks. Mathematics and the game in the betting shops are strongly interconnected with each other and if you do not follow some rules and axioms of this ancient science, then win the office on a regular basis will never work. Mathematical betting is the basis of any successful theory. How to use this science in betting, we will find out below.

## Mathematical bets on sports

The player must determine for himself what part of the bank and how he will bet when playing directly in the bookmaker's office. There are a large number of different financial strategies, where experienced bettors put a simple regular flat of 5% in the first place. This means that the bettor bets 5% of the playing pot every time. Strict adherence to this theory will help keep the bettor from quickly losing the whole bank, and if the game is successful, its systematic growth.

### Mathematical strategies for sports betting

There are a number of theories based on some rules of mathematics. Consider two of the most popular ones.

For example, many people play such a strategy as the ladder. How does it happen in practice? As a rule, variants with not the highest odds are chosen, within the range of 1.20-1.35. For instance, we have bet 100 KSh on the selected variant with the odds 1.32. The bet won, we already have 132 KSh.Then we select the event with odds 1.30, bet 132 KSh and win 172 KSh. Next time we bet 172 KSh. This simple mathematical calculation may give really good results if you do it correctly even if the odds are not very high.

Experienced players on the basis of this theory can still afford to play on the side of the clear favorites.

The second theory is based on changing the percentage of the flat. The player has opened an account in the office and put money into it, starting to bet at 5% of the bank. And there can be two situations.

If the player started winning right away, he reduces the flat amount to 3% or 4%, the bank has increased thanks to past winnings, which, in principle, preserves the old bet amount while reducing the percentage.

If a player starts losing right away, the flat percentage, on the contrary, increases a little to 6 or 7%, but it should be done when there is 99% confidence in the success of the developed strategy. Still, it should be understood that after any series of failures, there will come a winning streak. And so after 5 or 6 losing bets, many begin to increase the percentage.

In fact, there are a great many mathematical strategies for sports betting, but these two are the most popular.

### Mathematics for direct play at the office

What does an experienced bettor do when choosing an office to play? He first clarifies the terms of the game, where one of the first place goes to the level of odds, or rather bookmaker's margin on the matches of the sport, in which the player bets.

But after all, to calculate the margin laid in a particular office is not so difficult. To illustrate the mathematical calculation of bets in the Liga Betting. Let's assume that we make a bet purely in the framework of soccer competitions. In order to calculate the average margin in terms of soccer, we need to take for analysis the top match, just popular and not popular. Calculate the margin laid down in the match and then calculate the average. Let's begin.

To calculate the margin for this match, we need to take two opposite options: the home team's victory (P1) and the guests' non-loss (2X). In our case Liverpool win is odds 1.55, and on Porto not to lose analysts put 2.63. And now here is how the margin is calculated:

(1/1.55) + (1/2.63) = 64.52 + 38.02 = 102.54 - 100 = 2.54%

As we can see the selected bookmaker has a frankly low margin of 2.54% in such a top tournament.

Now let's calculate this figure within the framework of just a popular match.
