Hints and tips
- ValueBetting has a built in staking strategy we recommend you use. This will ensure optimal profits, but you can also use it to lower risk. Read more about the kelly criterion for stake sizing.
- Make sure your current bankroll is updated at least every day. This ensures the kelly stake sizing is correctly calculated. This is especially important in a downswing.
- Don’t bet on the highest odds just because they give the highest value. Higher odds are more unlikely to result in a win and this will increase the variance.
- A very high value % has a larger risk of being a palpable error. If you’re unsure, check if other bookmaker’s odds are similar. Palpable errors are not as dangerous as when arbitrage trading since you will just get your money returned. But it might still look suspicious to the bookmaker.
- For a balanced estimated value (EV), try to bet on odds between 1.2 and 3.1. Have an even more narrow selection if you want to reduce variance. For instance between 1.7 and 2.5.
