Maria Staking Plan


The idea behind this staking plan is very simple: you bet different amounts depending on the size of your bank and on the price of the selection. Your stakes are adjusted if you make profits or get exposed to losses. The flexibility of this plan makes it so efficient.

Rule 1 - Lay Different Amounts Depending on the Odds.

Odds Range % Bank to Lay
Less Than or Equal to 3.5 1%
Greater Than Or Equal to 3.6 but Less Than or Equal to 7.4 0.6%
Greater Than or Equal to 7.5 but Less Than or Equal to 11 0.4%
Greater Than 11 0%


The following example is based on a starting bank of £3000.

You can see in Bet 1 the odds are 8. The Stake is 0.4% of £3000 which is £12.
You can see in Bet 2 the odds are 4. The Stake is 0.6% of £3000 which is £18.
You can see in Bet 3 the odds are 2.5. The Stake is 1% of £3000 which is £30.
You can see in Bet 4 the odds are 12. The Stake is 0% of £3000 which is £0.


Maria Example 1


Rule 2 - If making profits, the stakes are increased on a daily basis in proportion to the betting bank on a daily basis.

For instance, if after day 1 the betting bank is at £3300 then 1% would now be £33 rather than £30.

Rule 3 - If after a days betting the cumulative betting bank has decreased the stakes are left alone unless 35% of the highest level of the bank is lost.

If this occurs then the stakes are re-calculated based on the new "65%-sized bank" For example if your using £3000 as your starting betting bank, you would keep the same stakes used until your betting bank went below £1,950 when those backer's stakes would become £19.50, £11.70 and £7.80 until the bank gets back up to £3,000 again (or - even down to £1267.50 - a further 35% loss). The 35% drop is always worked out from the highest point of the bank.
