The ATP Staking & Betting Bank
Staking and which size of bank to use is always a contentious subject in betting.Of course there are numerous theories, opinions and recommendations on which are best for any given system.At ATP we beleve that any service worth it’s salt can show profit without the need for any aggressive or progressive staking plan in an attempt to recoup its earlier losses. No more chasing losses with large bets and keeping those fingers crossed that the next bet will come home, or worse, another loss will mean an even larger bet to try to compensate for the losses. At ATP we understand that increasing your stake as your betting bank is DIMINISHING , is quite simply illogical! We also understand that calculating a bet, by factoring in historical losses, is also illogical.It will ultimately lead to a breathtakingly quick break of that betting bank!
So, at ATP there are no progressive bets, just plain , old fashioned level staking on each and every bet! Now, isn’t that a reassurance ?
The ATP 20/80 staking system for the BACKING system
At ATP we use level staking or in other words a fixed unit per bet.This fixed unit of each bet will be no more than 5% of the total betting bank.Having a dedicated betting bank ( of whatever you can afford) is crucial to your betting success.This should be seperate from all other forms of money, and be non essential money.A seperate pot also allows you to record and track your success as your bank grows or reduces.The unique 20/80 staking of each bet is an excellent form of capatilising on actual winners, in the event of this happening.This happens more often than you may imagineand it can boost the overall bank significantly.The 20/80 staking used is a simple yet very powerful form of staking when used with the ATP selections.Here is how it works:
20% of the stake ( lets say a fixed stake of £10 per bet, so £2) is placed on the win market on Betfair.
80% of the stake ( £8 from our origunal £10) is placed on the place market on Betfair for the same horse.
If the horse places as expected then we win the place minus the 20% of our stake on the win market.
OR If the horse wins then we win BOTH the win bet AND the place bet for a decent return.
If the horse neither wins or places then we lose our fixed stake.Here is an example of the ATP calculator showing all 3 possible returns from a £10 bet:
The benefit of the 20/80 staking is it offers a type of insurance or cover bet on any selections winning the race rather than placing.There is few things more frustrating than a straight place bet winning the race and leaving oneself bitterly disappointed that the win was not covered. So with the 20/80 staking we are safe in the knowledge that if our horse places then we have a profit.However, if it runs even better than expected and wins the race, then we cash in on both of our bets.Of course both these markets are available as seperate markets on all the betting exchanges.How convenient !
Simplicity with efficiency!
