Actual To Expected Losing Runs

If you are using a horse betting system and know the strike rate, plus number of bets that you have had so far, then you can work out your actual to expected losing run figure and see if it is positive or negative.

It is actually very important to have a positive figure here and many people don't realise this.

You can also work out your stakes for each bet when using the percentage staking plan, where you place a set percentage of the current betting bank on each selection. If your bank decreases, so do your stakes. If the bank increases, so do your stakes.

If you are using a betting system and don't know the correct stakes that you should be using, you are 'guessing' at what amount to place each time and have less chance to make money long term.

On the Inform Racing system builder, we have added an Actual to Expected % calculator.

This lets you input the longest losing run so far for any system you are testing or using, decide on how risk averse you wish to be going forward and your starting bank amount.

It will then calculate for you, the correct percentage of your bank and the stake that you will want to be using for your individual betting system.

Take a look at the video below.

The video below takes you through the stages of setting up your bank and your stake depending on what past results any system has already provided.


As you can see, it is very important to know exactly what you should be staking for each individual system that you use.

Get three or four of these systems and work out the staking for each and you could be in line to make some serious profits over the years.

You should also be able to see how simple it is to use the Inform Racing system builder too, to create your sustainable systems.
