D’Alembert Betting Theory

D’Alembert betting theory is widely spread in sports betting. It could be said that it’s maybe the most popular sports betting system, right after Martingale.

D’Albembert system is used both in sports betting and in casino games. These casino games include the likes of roulette and baccarat.

This betting system belongs to the group of negative progression systems. What this means is that the stake rises with each loss, and lowers with each win. This simple rule is the common ground for all negative progression systems.

Simple rules

While some betting systems are complicated and very complex, this is not the case with D’Alembert. Perhaps this is what makes it so accessible and efficient.

The idea of the D’Alembert betting system is to raise the stake by a single unit when you lose and lower the stake, also by a single unit, when you win a bet.

You probably noticed it already, but it’s worth pointing out that D’Alember is very risk-friendly. It’s tough to get into a significant deficit with D’Alembert. It’s the opposite of the Martingale system in this aspect, giving you peace of mind knowing you’re not going down the hole.

D’Alembert in sports betting

While it’s heavily used in casinos, you can efficiently use D’Alembert in sports betting, too.

A good idea for sports betting would be to bet on a draw. But keep in mind that you should choose only a specific team to bet on, week in and week out. In these cases, it’s best to take a mid-table team and stick to it. Say you wanted to pick Watford, who were predicted to finish around mid-table.

You bet on Watford drawing week in, week out. The base unit shouldn’t be more significant than 5%., or smaller than 2%. Ideally, you should use 2% as a base stake. Let’s say your base stake/2% of your budget is $5. If Watford losses or wins the first match, that makes your bet unsuccessful. After this, you raise your stakes by the size of a single base unit. Your next stake will be $10. This process goes on and on until you win a bet.

After you do win a bet, your base stake rises by a single unit. If you base stake was $5 in the first cycle, it should be $10 in the second, and so on.

It’s dangerous to use D’Alembert in the long run. This is the kind of system that doesn’t look at losing streaks kindly. Now, while you may think this is natural, the D’Alembert betting system punishes losing streaks while requiring a massive budget to use as a safety net. It may prove to be extremely useful in the short-term, you cannot rely on the D’Alembert betting system in the long run.

If you like experimenting, you can modify D’Alembert in a way that you raise your stakes by a double after each loss. This would mean that the profits are more massive once you hit the winning bet, but it’s much, much easier to fall down the cliff and crash completely.
