I have this weird idea that if I set the odds to at least 2.0 then I can lose half the bets and still break even

I was quite successful when I first started betting but I then got variance and then it improved again. So I did have success doing this but on my second run I was less successful.

I know that there is variance and sometimes you will be down but I see succcessful posts sometimes when I wasnt doing so well

I know odds usually correlate to the chance of success of a match so I do know that lower odds mean a higher chance of winning but in my mind I think if something is lets say 1.4 and I lose then I’ve lost my whole stake. If I win then I have only won 40% so I need to win 2+ bets to recover one loss

for example a loss would be -£10 and a win would be stake back and +£4 sometimes I think is that worth it but then again the chance of winning should be higher right so is that the better setting?

but 2.0 you still lose only -£10 but if you win then you get your stake back +£10. so only do 2.0? lol I need help figuring it out

So just wondering if anyone has experimented lets say with one week using lowers odds of 1.2 or 1.4 etc and a week with 2.0 or some other variation.

I just want to make sure I’m going to use the optimum settings before I try again for a 3rd time.

Hopefully I can get these silly ideas out of my head if they are silly! Please help lol

Also maybe value % too? but I think its mainly about odds first but any help is appreciated
