Counter-D'Alamber's Betting Strategy

One of the most effective strategies related to financial management, many consider D'Alamber's strategy, which is based on reducing the amount of betting when winning and increasing the amount of the bet when losing. But in this article we suggest that you consider the revised version instead.


The revised version of D'Alamber's strategy was called the Counter-D'Alamber Strategy. The main difference is that here, if successful, the size of the next bet increases, and in the case of defeat - decreases. Thus, if you fail several bets in a row, your costs are minimized, and with a winning streak you bring home a big profit.

How to Use the Counter D’Alamber Strategy?

The main principle of the strategy is to raise or decrease the amount of the bet depending on the outcome of the previous one.

As an example, let's take an initial bet of $10, and the amount it will be increased or decreased by will be two dollars. So, if your first bet is won, the size of the next will be $12, if on the contrary, lost, then on the next event you will bet eight dollars.

The minimum bet should be equal to what you have designated as a step, in our case - two dollars. This is the amount that you will either increase or decrease your subsequent bets by. It is worth noting that this strategy has the most benefit when betting on odds in the region of 100- 200.

Example of the Counter D'Alamber Strategy

In order to better understand the counter-D'Alamber strategy system, let's look at the example of betting selection and order:

  1. Bet $10 on TO (3.5) for the New Jersey Devils vs. Washington Capitals game. Odds 2.10 (+110). Loss. Balance - minus $10.
  2. Bet $8 on P2 on the New York Knicks vs. Philadelphia 76ers game. Odds 2.50 (+150). Win. Balance - plus $10.
  3. Bet $10 on a draw in the Borussia Dortmund vs. Schalke 04 game.  Odds 3.10 (+210). Win. Balance - plus $31.
  4. Bet $12 on "both will score" in the Marseille vs. Nice game. Odds 2.05 (+105). Loss. Balance - plus $19.
  5. Bet $10 on P2 in the Texas Rangers vs. New York Yankees game. Odds 2.20 (+120). Loss. Balance - plus $9.
  6. Bet $8 on P1 in the match Philadelphia Flyers vs. Pittsburgh Penguins game. Odds 2.50 (+150). Win. Balance - plus $21.
  7. Bet $10 on TO (2.5) in the Real Madrid vs. Villareal game. Odds 2.00 (+100). Win. Balance - plus $31.

As the example shows, if a certain positive balance is achieved, it is necessary to return to the original size of bets and to act again on the system. As a rule, with good analysis, this strategy can bring a stable income, and in case of a loss, the costs will never exceed the initial bank roll.

Pros and Cons of this Strategy

The main advantage of this tactic is that it is built on a financial calculation and allows you to keep the initial pot even in the event of a series of losses. The absence of a need for a large start-up bank can also be attributed to the positive aspects of this strategy.

The downsides include the difficulty of selecting events with high odds, which for beginners can be an unbearable task.

As a conclusion, this strategy is more suitable for experienced players who can carefully analyze the upcoming event and pick the most likely outcome with a high odds. Also, this strategy is well suited for those players who have wins and losses come in series of three or four bets. 

Note! Legalbet reminds that betting strategies do not guarantee permanent wins. We recommend to perceive sports betting as entertainment and a way of having fun, not a way of earning money!
