We cover the theory and practice of sports betting from different angles. We analyze in publications various strategies that answer the questions: when on what and how much money to put. Another relevant aspect of betting: how often to bet, how many bets can or should be done per day? Indeed, some lovers make almost hundreds of bets a day, while others are limited to literally a few, or even just one call. Which approach is more correct? According to the results of such players, it is, of course, difficult to single out the only correct scheme. At a minimum, no one has collected such statistics, and no comparisons have been made. So we will model different scenarios in this review, analyze the factors. In this connection, we will give recommendations on how much to bet quantitatively, where the minimum and maximum limits of the reasonable pass.
There can be two extremes regarding the frequency, the number of bets made with a sportsbook regarding sports events: hundreds of bets per day, or none at all. Between these extreme points are intermediate options: dozens of iterations per day, a few moves (up to a dozen). These are the options that we will consider, citing the pros and cons, make comparisons and draw conclusions to determine the optimal number of bets per day.
First, we emphasize a few facts from practice. Sporting events are not uniform. If we consider anyone sport, that is, a season, there is no season. This means that at least 2-3 months a year in a particular discipline there are no competitions at all. Well, in the season the games are uneven. There are tournaments where matches take place every day. But then, at the end of such a forum, a break inevitably sets in. If we are talking about the regular season, then the games are also not distributed evenly throughout the week. On the contrary, the main tour takes place either on the weekend or fits in 1-2 in the middle of the week. Since the day is not like the day, in terms of saturation with sporting events, there is no need to talk about any uniformity of rates. There are seasonality and cyclicality. So in the understanding of adequate players, the question of the optimal number of bets per game day when tournaments are played, which the bettor watches, is discussed.
Here you must immediately distinguish between the behavior of amateurs who are literally addicted to bets, are dependent. Such an addiction even has such a medical definition as ludomania. A new day is coming, and the player is looking for something to bet on. And it doesn’t matter, for example, that there are no games in your favorite football leagues today. Such a dependent person feels discomfort if not delivered. Probably something from a kind of “breaking” of a drug addict. Having not found the usual competitions, the ludomania climbs into all sorts of unfamiliar leagues or completely different sports. Followed by bets on youth football, championships of countries from the football periphery. Finding no consolation there, bet on hockey, basketball, tennis, e-sports, chess, virtual sports. In general, the player goes all the way. Despite the fact that in these disciplines he is absolutely incompetent. The result of such actions is predictable – a deep minus. There are many bets, and the exhaust is negative.
If you recognize yourself, notice the symptoms in the paragraph above, then you need to do something about it. Such dependence on bets is a matter of psychology or even psychiatry if everything is running. We a priori approach the issue from the perspective that an adequate bet is a bet only on those sports and championships about which it is adequately informed. Yes, it is possible that a player covers 2-3 sports so that they cover the entire calendar year more or less evenly. This is normal, provided that the person understands it, watches matches tracks news. That is, there is material, a basis for analysis and forecasting. When bets are made “from the flashlight”, just to “charge” something — this is a disease. It is necessary to set hard limits. Literally, write yourself a poster with the names of the leagues you are betting on. When a hand reaches out to put on something outside this list, pull yourself, keep yourself from adventures. No one can exercise such control besides you. So if you want to have a chance at earning, and not just drain money, work on this moment.
Many betting enthusiasts solve the problem of satisfying their dependence by looking at forecasts on various free services and portals. There you can find hundreds of forecasts per day for a variety of disciplines. The player thinks that he is relieving himself of responsibility for the forecasts, although she is always on who is risking her money. Moreover, all sorts of boobies write these forecasts, which are no better than analysts than he himself. It turns out that the player makes many tens or hundreds of bets per day.
The above cases we do not consider. Described them here to protect you from such errors. It will be about the optimal number of bets per day when you yourself consciously select events and outcomes in them. This is the only way to talk about your patency at a distance of several weeks, a month, a season. This is the only way to track dynamics, to ascertain progress or regression as forecasts. If bets are made at random or at the prompts of others, there can be no talk about any progress, you simply tear out the most important growth point from your game.
It is no coincidence that we mentioned the concept: “quality of forecasts”. This is one of the key factors limiting the number of bets that a player can make even on the most intense day of competition. Let’s say that we are talking about European club football, where the games basically fit on two days off. Imagine that a player has a lot of free time and can collect information all week. Even under such greenhouse conditions, available only to units, it is impossible to review the entire match, even in the review mode, it is impossible to track all the news. Many betters limit themselves to a quick look at statistics, on services, like the Myskor, and only from this draw conclusions on future games, forecasts. Even topical compounds do not bother, not to mention other important factors. It is impossible to achieve a positive result on bare statistics. The reason is that statistics are very thoroughly reflected by bookmakers in the odds. To find an advantage and create the prerequisites for distance profit is real only when operating with larger factors related to a short distance. It is some significant short-term trends that conflict with long-term trends – this is the basis for profit. It is possible to identify such moments only while deep in the subject, watching a lot of the match, reviews, carefully tracking the composition of teams, the physical form of athletes, and so on.
Practice shows that an experienced player can own the situation in no more than 3-5 leagues. If you try to bet on 10 or more championships, there is already a dispersal of attention, the regular omission of many important facts. So, no matter how you would like to quickly turn around the bank, the player rests on the ceiling, after which quality suffers. So the number of bets, in itself, loses its meaning. For example, by making an ROI of + 5% for a full turn of the bank, a better will earn more in absolute terms if he does not do 1-2 rounds, but 10 circles. But if the quality has suffered, then there will be no positive ROI, but there will be a minus, a loss of money. Then what’s the point of racing for the number of bets? He is not there.
