Staking (and results keeping)

All bets will be recorded as the Fixed price advised at the time of publishing unless otherwise noted.

We list recommended stakes in Units so as to allow subscribers to tailor their betting outlay to suit their bank. Everyone chooses to bet in different bet sizes, from differing betting banks (the personal funds they put aside for betting), some will bet $20 per bet, some $200 per bet. So as to keep things simple and clear for everyone to follow we then talk in bet units. Our advice is to decide what size betting bank (per week) and then unit size (per bet) is likely to work for you and then call this your betting unit, remembering that you may have approx. 16 to 20 units of recommended outlay per week for horse racing selections that you may also run the risk of losing. Each bet will be nominated in betting units between 1 to 5, with this also a guide to the level of confidence that our sports analyst has in his nominated bet.

For those who would prefer a more conservative approach, given the high % of placings achieved by Matt Thompson with his selections you might consider a 1 x 2 or 1 x 3 staking method, staking 1 unit the win and 2 units the place for all selections regardless of the market price. Your longer term returns will be less but still very profitable, but this approach will even out the run of win outs when they occur and assist in maintaining your long term betting bank.
