Betting Systems

Ever since man invented betting, punters have been trying to develop a system that will allow them to gain that winning 'edge'.

The greatest minds in history have tried to devise a system for beating casino games. The great French mathematician Blaise Pascal, though not a gambler, was once asked by a friend to help with a wagering proposition. Pascal documented his studies in Traite du Triangle Arethmetique which was the first book written on probability theory.

Even Albert Einstein tried to beat Roulette. After spending some time on the problem, he concluded that it could not be done and he was quoted as saying - "The only way to beat Roulette is to steal the money when the dealer's not looking."

Over time, more and more "experts" claim that they have established structured methods or approaches to betting aimed at offsetting inherent advantages held by the house (in casino and card games) or by bookmakers (in horse racing and sports betting).

Those who promote and subscribe to betting systems swear that the systems work.

While those who say that they have analyzed betting systems, claim that betting systems cannot beat casino games with a house advantage or the odds laid by bookies.

Betting system subscribers claim that the systems lessen the time to pick winners; promotes better discipline and money management; simplifies betting choices and ultimately, reduces risk.

On the other hand, those who dissuade the use of betting systems claim that if the systems do really work, why would the authors take the time and effort to promote their systems instead of spending time placing their own bets using their supposed 'fool proof' systems? Wouldn't they earn more that way than sell a $50 - $100 e-book? is here to lay all the cards on the table, so to speak. Let betting enthusiasts know about the different betting systems out there and let them decide whether the betting systems work for them or not.

There are no cure-alls or panaceas in betting. What may work for you may not work for others. The best that you can do is to research and learn as much as you can about the games you'd like to bet on and the betting systems that apply to such games, and then get your feet wet and see if it works.

As a rule, successful betting practices, whether a system developed by some 'expert' or something you've devised through experience, should increase your odds of winning in order to produce long term profits. After all, we bet to get a profit. Otherwise, why bet at all?
