The World Series Betting Martingale

November 30, 2010 MLB Baseball

World Series betting gives gamblers a chance to do something a little bit risky but potentially profitable.

It is called a Martingale and is more popular in the World Series than at any other time during the baseball season. Let’s look at the Martingale in World Series baseball betting and how it can be used to make money.

World Series betting is based on a seven-game series. That means a team must win four games to win the series in World Series baseball betting. One theory is to Martingale a team to win at least one game in World Series betting. To review, a Martingale is betting on something the first time and continually doubling up until you win. During the regular season you can use the Martingale as well, but it is risky because teams go on big winning and losing streaks that can ruin a Martingale. The risk is lessened in World Series betting because the Martingale can only be four games. For example, if the Red Sox were playing the Dodgers you could take the Red Sox to win at least one game in World Series baseball betting. If they lost the first game you double up on the second game. If they lost the second game you double up again in the third game and in the fourth game if necessary. The only way you can not make money with a Martingale in World Series betting is if your team gets swept.

Is the Martingale risky in World Series baseball betting? The answer is obviously yes, since you would lose quite a bit in World Series betting if your team lost four straight games. How often does a team sweep in World Series betting? If you are betting a Martingale you might be a little worried because it has happened 8 times in the last 20 World Series. That is a huge concern if you are involved in the Martingale in World Series betting. Normally a team won’t get swept in a four game series very often. It definitely won’t happen almost half the time.

On paper, the Martingale in World Series betting seems like a great idea. A team shouldn’t get swept in four straight games in World Series betting. The problem is that recent history doesn’t support the idea. It also is a problem because just one loss in World Series betting in terms of a four game Martingale will crush your bankroll.
