Betting units are used as a substitute for money and they make it easy for you to work out how much money you should place on each of our betting tips. We use betting units because everyone has different sized bankrolls and different sized stakes that they like to bet.
Betting units allow you to make exactly the same progress as everyone else. It really doesn’t matter whether you’re betting $10 a fight or $1000 a fight, you will make money if you place bets on all of our betting tips and stick to the unit sizes that we recommend in our articles.
Many people use betting units in a different way to us, but this is what works for us and this method has helped us to win money betting on MMA for over 5 years…
We use 3 standard unit sizes for our betting tips and each unit size represents our confidence level in a bet. Here are the three different kinds of bet that we place:
2.5 Units – Moderately confident.
5 Units – Very confident.
10 Units – Extremely confident.
The research that we put into our betting tips means that the most common unit size that we use is 10 units. This is because we only like to place bets on fighters when we feel very confident that they will win. We don’t believe in throwing away good money on bets that we only feel moderately confident in. Therefore we will only place 2.5 unit “moderately confident” bets, when the odds are high enough to make it worthwhile.
Similarly, you will only ever see us placing a 10 unit bet when we feel extremely confident that a bet will win. MMA is such an unpredictable sport that you need to take extreme caution when placing big bets, this is because a bad weight cut, injury or flash knock out can always result in a loss.
HOW MUCH SHOULD I BET?
How much money you should bet depends on the size of your bankroll and how much money you have to play with.
Our standard bet is 5 units and this should be seen as a standard bet size.
If the standard amount that you bet with is $50 and we recommend placing a 5 unit bet, you should go ahead and place a $50 bet.
If we were to recommend placing a 10 unit bet, you should increase your standard bet to $100.
Similarly, you would reduce your standard bet to $25, if we only recommended placing a 2.5 unit bet.
By sticking to these 3 standard unit sizes, you dramatically reduce the risk of going on a bad run and losing all the money in your bankroll.
This strategy uses risk management techniques that enable you to grow your betting bankroll in a safe and controlled way.
WHEN SHOULD I INCREASE THE SIZE OF MY BETS?
You should increase the size of your bets when your bankroll starts to grow.
Here is a breakdown of our standard bets and unit sizes…
2.5 Units = $25 = (2.5% of bankroll)
5 Units = $50 = (5% of bankroll)
10 Units = $100 = (10% of bankroll)
Keep adjusting your bets depending on the size of your bankroll and you will make money with our betting tips. Things may seem slow at first if you have a small bankroll, but as soon as your bankroll hits $500 – $1000, you will start to see it grow rapidly!
WHEN CAN I START WITHDRAWING MONEY?
You can start withdrawing money whenever you want, but withdrawing money from your bankroll will obviously slow down it’s growth.
I would personally recommend playing with a bankroll of at least $1000 before you start to withdraw any money, because $1000 is a good amount of money to start generating a small income from betting on MMA.
The more money you have in your bankroll, the more money you can win.
The longer it takes you to build a big bankroll, the longer it will take you to start earning big cash from betting on MMA.
