Understanding sports betting

1. What is a bookmaker?

A Bookmaker is a company that allows you to. bet money on sports matches, political or social events, etc. The most famous are Pinnacle, AsianOdds, Bet365, Unibet, WilliamHill, etc. 

2. What is a bankroll?

Your bankroll is the money you want to spend on your sports betting. Good bankroll management is essential in sports betting – at least as important, if not more important, than your results. It is a basic skill you need to have wihen you want to win. You will find advice in the Methods rubric of the site. For any questions, don’t hesitate to contact me on Telegram @YouriLECOMTE.

3. What is a series?

The term “series” applies to Martingale bets – used in the Increasing/Pronobis/Fibonacci7B – in draw matches here at Youri Draw. A series or a bet series is a succession of bets that comes to an end once a bet is a winning one. As I explain further down in Point 6. Martingale, when you win a bet, you start again with a one-unit bet after a win.

4. What is a unit?

A unit represents 1% of your bankroll. If you have a €500 bankroll, the value of your unit is €5. Attention: For certain strategies that I explain in my method, I recommend that you have a bankroll of 200, 300, or 500 units to start. For the Increasing Stake method, I recommend a bankroll of 500 units and a starting bet of 1 unit. The unit amount is also usually equal to your first bet.

5. What is a Martingale?

A Martingale is a betting system taken from the famous game of casino roulette. It consists of betting a higher amount on the next bet after each lost bet. This method can be very profitable, but also very dangerous if you do not have a large enough bankroll or have not correctly calculated your starting bet. The increasing bets are expoential and can be fatal to your bankroll if there is a long losing series. This is why I encourage you to follow my advice for placing bets, and to not get carried away if you make big gains in the first weeks and months.

There are several Martingale systems:

5.1 The classic casino Martingale consists of betting €1, then €2, then 4, 8, 16, 32, etc. until you hit the right color.

5.2 The Martingale adapted to draw matches (or Increasing stake) consists of multiplying your bets by 1.5 after each lost bet. 1, 1.5, 2.25, 3.33, etc. As soon as a draw match is declared, you start again at 1 unit for the next bet. 

5.3 Hybrid Martingales (like the Pronotest and Newbie strategies) are systems based on the Martingale, but which limit the number of bets. This means that above a certain limit, you stop betting and wait for the next winning match to start betting again. The advantage is that you avoid betting large sums when there is a long losing streak. The disadvantage is that you will have to say goodbye to the money you bet during the current series.

6. What is a fixed, or Flat Stake, bet?

The fixed bet strategy is the most widely used method in sports betting. It is not necessarily profitable because it is linked to the percentage of wins and the average odds. The advantage is that is is less dangerous for beginners than the Martingale strategy. The fixed bet strategy consists of – as its name indicates – betting the same amount on each match. In general, this amount is between 1% and 2.5% of your bankroll.

7. What is a simple bet?

A simple bet means betting on a single event. If the outcome is the one you bet on, then you win.

8. What is ROI (yield)?

ROI is your return on investment. It is calculated according to the following formula: ROI = Gains (or) Losses / Investment (the total amount bet across all your bets) x 100.
