When it comes to betting, the Fibonacci idea is to move on to the next number after a loss and go back two figures after a success. This time we are going to analyse one of its possible applications: betting on tennis matches.
Ideal strategy for favourites
The essence of Fibonacci makes it a very suitable strategy to use when betting on favourites. To reach the aforementioned limit of 34 betting units it is necessary to lose 8 consecutive bets, which is mathematically probable but really difficult. We chose tennis because we consider the weight of favourites to be greater than in other sports such as – for example – football. The vast majority of the time, players who start as clear favourites win their matches. This happens in football, it is true, but the possibilities of surprise are much more latent.
In relation to the amount of money allocated to each unit, this is determined by the bettor himself, depending ultimately on his style and his specific circumstances. Either way, it is important that bets are placed on true favourites, otherwise the chances of success with Fibonacci will be greatly diminished.
Returning to the subject of the limit, it is essential that it exists so that bankruptcy can be avoided at least some of the time. This means that, if all eight errors in a row were to occur, you would have to start again with a bet of 1 unit. Also, the limit can be altered as appropriate, both for winnings and losses. In that sense, there are those who opt for the variant of going back only one step after a win and only two steps after two successes in a row.
Examples and practice of the Fibonacci System in tennis matches
The increase of the stake after a loss aims to ensure that the winnings always exceed the previous losses, or at least that everything is balanced. Of course, this also increases the risks involved. Some experts claim that one of the best ways to apply the Fibonacci System is in football, betting on draws, similar to what many do with the Martingale. As we explained above, the adaptation to tennis has to do with the fact that this sport gives greater guarantees in its results. Of course, you have to be patient because the favourites go hand in hand with low odds, so the profits are obtained moderately and gradually.
Let’s look at an example to understand it better. If we start by betting 1 unit at odds of 1.50 and win, we will make a profit of 0.50 (1.50 in total). As we win, we repeat the bet of 1 unit and, if we lose, we would have a negative balance of -0.50 in terms of accumulated profit. We would then have to bet 2 units. Assuming we lose again, we would have -2.50 and it would be our turn to put 3 units on the line. If in that case we would win with an odds of 1.75, we would get a total of 5.25, of which 2.25 would be profit and we would be on the verge of recovery.
Tips and conclusion of the Fibonacci System in tennis matches
This shows that a single success can practically save all the previous losses, something interesting if we take into account that, in tennis, there are much more logical results than surprises. As a tip, a good way to reduce the risks is to choose the right and sensible matches. This requires proper prior study, which makes it very difficult to make eight mistakes in a row.
In this regard, a good idea to start testing the Fibonacci System in tennis is to select some of the players who make up the Top Ten, always paying attention to the streaks and moments that they could go through. It is clear that we should not limit ourselves to the Top 10, as sometimes there may be atypical cases of tennis players who for some reason are returning from an inactivity and live a great present, so that their ranking becomes a lie. The truth is that developing this strategy by betting on the best will do nothing but enhance the endorsements and support for the good health of our bankroll.
