Right... I was watching the cricket today and saw on http://www.coral.co.uk
odds for next batter to be caught out. the odds (in decimals because im thick) were 1.5.
If I was to put say a £50 on this, and it won, great, £25 up.
But what if I were to lose and simply treble the stake, i.e. £150 stake. This would mean i had bet, in total, £200, but would stand to win £225, if the bet won.
If you continue to do this over and over you would always eventually end up winning half the initial stake value (hope I haven't lost you by this point)
I know there are ways in which this cannot work in roulette (table limits, 0 ball etc) but what is stopping me from doing this? I've done the maths and it seems flawless but surely it won't be because everybody would be doing it?
Help would be great, could save me a lot of cash from being silly!!
Rep will be added.
