Bankroll Growth Strategy For The Average Bettor

    Many people give the reason that they only have a small bankroll so they don't feel there is any point in betting singles for a small percentage of their bankroll which is what every successful sports bettor will recommend.

    I am taking an example of the standard bettor who bets €20 on the weekend accumulator.

    If this person were to deposit their weekly €20 into their betting bankroll each week and aim to grow this bankroll by 5% per week they would have €54,831 after 100 weeks.

    Obviously it's not easy to do this but it is much better than betting €20 on the weekly 8 fold accumulator in my opinion.

    See the weekly progress here:

    8 fold accumulator is almost impossible to achieve.A pro gambler wouldn't touch it with a barge pole. A mugs bet......bookies love it!

    I'm biased as very much prefer the great accas, not the 8-fold of course, but typically a 4 from 5 e/w.
    Ideally with all risk reduction factors, all calculated available enhancements, perceived alternating offsets/arb scenarios, optimum price cross-checking, live advantage etc.

    What is the original question, does it recommend building singles from 20 to 55,000?

    If so, that's a bucket full of holes. The only (verified) punter who likely did this (20 to 4m, {44 sequential}) was FFT, in fairly safe AvB, 1.33 avg type markets.
    Worse, is the Goat chap that does very tiresome risky coin flips which play like thus: W-L-W-L-W-L-W-W-L-L-W-L-W-L.
