How to bet on sports using the "catch-up" method

Almost every player wants to find a win-win strategy with which to win all bets. Some bettors claim that such a strategy for sports Malaysia betting is overtaking. This system is very popular, but not every player will agree with its genius. In this material, let's break down how to play and how to bet on the run-ups, as well as consider the tactics of the strategy on "live" examples.

What is "overtaking" in sports betting

"Catch-up" is a sports betting strategy in which the size of each subsequent bet depends on the outcome of previous bets. The add-on formula implies that the new bet must be larger than the previous one to completely cover the losses and make a profit. After winning, the player must return to the original bet size. In fact, the basis of the overtake is the Martingale strategy.

How the strategy works, the formula for catch-up

It is not at all difficult to understand how to bet according to the strategy of the add-on. Everything begins with the selection of the initial bet, and then already selected the event for the system. After each step, it is necessary to increase the par value of the bet to such a level to be able to recoup the money already lost and generate income. The increase of subsequent bets will depend on the odds of the event on which the bet is made.

It is easiest to consider an example of the Martingale strategy, i.e. the odds of each subsequent bet is "2.0". If the initial bet is 10 c.u., then each subsequent bet will go by the chain: 10->20->40->80->160->320 and so on. In this case, if he wins at any step, the profit will be equal to the initial bet.

If the player does not want to search for suitable events and bet at odds of "2.0", he will have to calculate the necessary bet denomination amount every time. Formula for calculation of the overtake in bets: S=(W L)/(K-1).

  • S - the amount of the necessary bet;
  • W - potential gain from the initial face value bet;
  • L - the total amount of money lost per round;
  • K - the coefficient of the event, on which the bet is concluded.

Let's calculate the formula using a real example. Initially, we bet 10 c.u. on an event with odds "1.75", the potential profit was to be 7.5 c.u. After two steps we are already minus 26$. The third step shows an event with the odds "1.82". Now let's substitute all these values into the formula:

  • S=(W L)/(K-1)=(7.5 26)/(1.82-1)=33.5/0.82=40.85

It turns out that it is necessary to bet 40.85$ on the ratio "1.82", in order to return the spent 26$ and get the desired profit of 7.5$. Let's check if our calculations are correct: 40.85 x 1.82 = 74.35 c.u. we will get after the bet passes. Now let's subtract the betting amount for the three steps from the winnings: 74.35 - 40.85 - 26 = 7.5 c.u. This is exactly the profit that was expected.

The formula helps us determine the specific betting denomination needed to cover the losses received earlier. The main thing is not to forget to sum up all bets made during one round of the overtake strategy. After winning it is necessary to re-set the initial bet.

The main principle of playing with the betting add-ons is to continually increase the par value of the bet until the first success. Correctly estimate your bank before the start of the round, you need to calculate a minimum of 5-7 steps. Experienced players recommend to have in reserve an amount that allows you to go painlessly up to 15 steps in one round. The more iterations you can make, the better your chances of success.
