The 1/3 system is another system that’s used primarily against the spread.
The 1/3 system is comparable to the Martingale system in the way that you improve your stakes, and it is designed to be profitable provided that 2 from your 6 bets win, which equals 33% or 1/3 (hence the name of this machine ).
With this system, you create a series of 6 wagers, following the bet plan: X, 2X, 4X, 6X, 8X, 12.5X. Thus, in case a 1st bet is $20, the evolution of your bets will be $20, $40, $80, $120, $160, and $300.
You continue going through this progression until you’ve gained, at which point you begin again.
As an example, in the event you lose your initial 3 wagers but acquire the 4th, you will still be somewhat down entire. Regardless of winning a wager, you move to the 5th staking worth from the progression. If this bet wins, then you start over. If it loses, you keep on into the 6th progressive amount.
The 1/3 system may be employed with the Zig-Zag gambling strategy (covered below) to minimize the chance of losing 4+ games in a set of wagers. For it to work, you are going to need odds of -110, which is why we employ this system to point spread betting.
Before utilizing the 1/3 betting system, be aware that a long unlucky streak can cost a big chunk of your betting bankroll. As a result of this, if you lose the first 5 bets, start over without going forward to the 6th.
