Why the stake size is bigger while the value is lower

Hello guys, I just want to understand this :

a 5% value bet needs a stake of 50$
a 3% value bet needs a stake of 120$

I just can’t understand why the stake size is bigger while the value is lower.

and it’s not just this example, I found each day tens of bets with some stakes that look really not logical at all … is there some other factors that are being considered when calculating the stake for each bet?? I really need some help guys, please.

Hi, read up on Kelly staking.
Same value, on lower odds, will calculate a higher stake.

Hello sir, yes you are right, I just spent the last 1h30 understanding it a bit more in debt and I did a little simulation and you are right same value with lower odds can generate a higher stake :
tree first lines have same value but different odds and the stake have changed a lot, thank’s a lot for the help :
