Your bankroll must be protected at all costs, a good bankroll will get you thru the ups and downs of sports wagering.
You must think of Sports Wagering in the very same light as you would Stock Market investments... in either form of investment, you have to have a "Cushion" to get you thru the ups and downs of a market that naturally rises and falls during any given cycle.
I recommend wagering NO MORE than 5% of your bankroll on any one game, period. I have found that the very best way to protect your bankroll is to incrementally raise or lower the amount that you will wager by "Percentage of Bankroll".
For example, lets say that you have a starting Bankroll of $5000, this should be an amount that is set aside and dedicated to nothing else but sports wagering, don't fall into the trap of the ordinary "Joe Public" type of gambler that does not start the season with a "Dedicated Starting Bankroll" and instead finds themselves dipping into their mortgage or rent payment or car payment and before long winds up playing with "Scared Money" because they know that they can not afford to lose, this type of gambler usually ends up digging a hole for themselves that they can not climb out of!!
When utilizing the "Percentage of Bankroll" concept that I mentioned, a top play selection would be 5% of your starting bankroll, in our example let's say its $5000, thus 5% of $5000 is $250.00, a medium play would be 3% of your starting bankroll, but most plays should fall into the "Regular" or small selection status of only 1% of your starting bankroll.
Each week your starting Bankroll would be different because of how you did the previous week, therefore, each week your wagering amounts based on 5%, 3%, and 1% of the bankroll would be different.
So, I would recommend either using a "Flat Betting" system which means that you wager the same amount on each contest but is still based on percentage of bankroll and self adjusts each week based on your new starting bankroll.
Or use the incremental system of 5%, 3%, 1%, to wager different amounts on different games, but keep in mind that the top wager is still only 5% of your bankroll... remember this simple rule of thumb and it will keep you out of trouble my friend!!
Using either system as I have outlined will keep your bankroll safe and sound over the ups and downs of a long season.

Two Great NFL Systems
Why would the odds maker make adjustments you ask? Simply put my friend, the reason why is because the odds maker already knows what today's "Joe Public" bettor will do and that is to pounce on the system or trend play or in the case of bad weather jump on the "UNDER" and when hearing about an injury jump on the opposing team like there is no tomorrow.Personally, when hearing of a team suffering an injury to virtually any player with the exception of the QB, I have found it very profitable to play the ole "wait and see" game, meaning that later in the week once Joe Public has influenced the line that value will probably be found on the side of the team with the injury!Below you will find a couple of NFL system plays dated since 1990 that have been quite profitable because of the fact that they are very uncommon in frequency and secondly because they combine solid handicapping theory, meaning that there is rhyme and reason as to why they occur!1) Play against teams playing their 3rd consecutive road game if they lost the 1st game and won the 2nd game.
