From Fixed Odds Sports Betting by Joseph Buchdahl
the tables below show the averaged results from 10,000 simulations
with 250 bets placed with a starting bankroll of £100
This is the simplest form of staking with each
bet involving a stake of £1
It has the lowest returns of any staking method
The returns on Fixed Percentage compared to Fixed Stakes
are all higher.
At the lowest stakes (1 point stake) the increase in returns
are small about 6%, but at the highest stakes the increase
goes shooting up to over 2000%
The risks of bankruptcy is close to zero for stakes up to
5 points. Even with 10 point stakes, the risk of bankruptcy
is still very low for odds of 0.5 or 0.6, but is unacceptably
high for shorter odds (up to 40% risk).
The risks of not making a profit are also higher.
