MaxDalury sports betting money and bankroll money management is very simple and easy to follow. The bets are rated 2 to 5 units. The stake size indicates the suggested percentage of starting bankroll that should be risked on a given bet. For example, if I posted a a bet with a risk of 2 units, I am risking 2% of my starting bankroll on that bet and if I posted a bet with a risk of 5 units, I am risking 5% of my starting bankroll on that bet.
2 units – 1% of bankroll
3 units – 1.5% of bankroll
4 units – 2% of bankroll
5 units – 5% of bankroll
Higher the stake, higher the edge and higher probability of hitting. 5 unit bets are rare (2 to 4 times a month) but they have a very high probability of hitting.
Your starting bankroll should be something that you can afford to lose because at the end of the day, its still a gamble regardless of the edge.
