Short Odds Betting Challenge
Welcome to our short odds betting challenge. We are going to show you step-by-step how to make money from the bookies. Whilst we cannot guarantee anything as all forms of betting carry obvious risks, this method we are using is the ‘most likely’ to yield a profitable outcome over the long term.
Our Short Odds Betting Strategy
If you like ACCA tips or you are fond of BTTS bets, then our short odds betting strategy will be right up your street. Before we show you it in action, we want to run through a few key pointers.
- Discipline – if you want to make a quick killing, this is not the right strategy for you. The key here is patience. As you will see, it is a bit of a slow burner. It is designed to help us win small and steady amounts not huge sums straight off.
- Don’t Get Greedy – It’s easy to start placing too many bets, looking to fast track your winning but we urge caution. By being ultra selective, we stand a much better chance of long-term success.
- Learn to Lose – Not every bet will win, this is why we have a fixed proportional betting system in place so we are never crippled. Also, if we won every single bet, the bookies would ban us quicker than you can blink.
- Spread things Out – You will need multiple online accounts to make any money from this because if you stick to one sportsbook, the chances are you will be limited if you are showing signs of success. The good news, we have a host of operators to choose from which offer ACCA football betting.
- Use the Markets – You don’t have to stick with just the match result. Explore the markets, perhaps BTTS bets are what you fancy or win-draw double betting. You will see what we mean as we progress with the challenge.
More information regarding our betting strategy, ACCA betting options, etc can be found in the FAQ section at the bottom of this page.
Proportional Short Odds Betting Formula
The great thing is, there’s no rocket science involved here. We use 3 easy-to-understand parameters:
- Only bet 10% of your bankroll. This will help our bankroll management. Yes, it is tempting to jump in deeper, but we don’t advise it.
- Bet doubles and trebles. Singles are risky due to the price parameters we use (see point 3). 4-fold accumulators or greater can be volatile even if very short odds. We want to keep the variables to a minimum so doubles are perfect and trebles are acceptable, too.
- Combined odds to fall between 1.60 – 1.75. It has to be over 1.50 to give us to 2 out of 3 profit margin (that is if 2 bets win and the third loses, we are still up by a little). Anything over 1.75 and we are taking a few too many risks, which is not the aim at all.
Short Odds Betting Challenge
To show you this system in action, we will start with £100. You can begin with more or less but a ton is a nice round figure so that’s what we choose. Each bet will be detailed below so you can monitor progress.
We will publish our bet slips before kick off each time so you can follow along as well.
Short Odds Betting Challenge FAQ
Q. What tools do you use to gather the match information for the ACCA short odds bets?
Our main resource is soccerstats.com. We find it comprehensive enough to provide us with what we need. We are sure their are hundreds of other sites available but for us, that’s the one we use.
Q. Do you need a good knowledge of football to be successful with shorts odds betting betting?
While it certainly helps it’s by no means essential. We stick to a fairly rigid structure by betting on home teams which have a good record and are showing decent form. This information can be found on the website mentioned above, so technically you don’t need any existing knowledge to give short odds betting a whirl.
Q. Can you become rich from short odds betting?
In theory it is of course possible but in reality, no. The main obstacle is winning too often as bookies will soon start to decrease your wagering limits. This is why you need to spread the love around when you start placing bigger wagers.
Q. How often do you bet?
This is a personal choice. You could do it every day or only once a week. It is tempting to bet more often at the beginning because progress is very slow when trying to double your first £100. However, we prefer not to force things. Generally, we stick to European leagues which we are more familiar with and there is a wealth of information available. Doing small ACCA bets or short odds bets every day means jumping into the unknown leagues. While knowledge is not essential (as we previously said) we still try to avoid bringing in too many unknown variables.
