The basic idea with trend betting is to either spot a trend as it is happening and, if you are quick enough, capitalize on it or make a profit. The other side of the coin in trend betting is to predict when a trend is about to happen and then bet accordingly. This is quite similar to some card counting tricks used in Blackjack where one tries to predict valuable cards in the deck.
The former requires experience and confidence that it is indeed a trend and then to act quickly before the trend passes, the latter requires a great deal of faith that a trend is about to happen and then begin to bet on it.
The idea that something that has not happened for a while will happen is not farfetched and is in fact a mathematical probability, we are dealing with numbers after all. The main problem with predictive trend betting is that we have no idea just how long it will be before the mathematical imbalance will correct itself.
So we now understand that trend betting strategy relies on either being able to spot a trend as it is happening and the seizing the moment, or predicting when a trend or ‘imbalance’ will correct itself and then betting accordingly. We also know that this potentially could happen quickly, in which case we stand to make a fast profit, or it could take days or weeks, in which case we could potentially lose everything!
For our example we will focus on even odds betting and to make it easier, we will use the popular red or black even money bet. The idea behind trend betting is that one side will hit more often than the other side and that, sooner or later, this will have to even out. This is the essence of predictive trend betting.
To begin one has to track the results of at least 18 spins to see how the results of each spin are coming through. If either colour dips below 40% during the spins we can predict that it will be due to come up again. If for example red only comes up 6 times out of the 18 spins when 9 would have been even, we can then expect that red will even out further along in the cycle. We can then either start to bet on red and wait it out or we can wait for the first red to strike and then begin betting on red, hoping that it is a trend.
While this video isn’t specifically about trend betting, it is fun to watch someone make a bet on a single colour in Roulette:
Trend betting has a few advantages as well as some disadvantages. On the plus side the system is easy to learn and to adapt to a real money roulette game, similar to a basic positive progression system like the Martingale betting strategy. The trend betting strategy works with even money bets or outside bets so there is less risk of making huge bets at a time, unless you are chasing a trend that is taking very long to turn.
This is where one of the major disadvantages comes in as there is no sure way to know when an imbalance in either red or black, depending on which one is the one in an imbalance, decides to correct itself. Chasing a trend in the hopes that it kicks in sooner rather than later is very risky and could cost you your entire bankroll. The other disadvantage is being able to spot a trend early enough takes experience and being able to go with it as a trend bet takes confidence, neither of which are characteristic of novice players.
The Roulette trend betting strategy can be potentially very profitable but it also comes with a number of drawbacks and risks. This makes the system not suitable for all players and we can go into greater detail regarding the chances and risks related to Roulette trend betting strategy by answering three simple questions.
On the surface the Roulette trend betting strategy appears to be well-suited to all levels of Roulette player and even novice Roulette players can learn and implement the betting system with ease. One of the main reasons for this is that Roulette trend betting strategy uses outside bets of either black or red or columns and dozens, all of which are recommended to beginners to start with when betting in Roulette. Certain aspects of Roulette trend betting strategy however make it not suitable for novice players as it takes experience and confidence to be able to predict a trend and bet on it.
Roulette trend betting strategy is fairly risky on one level and less risky on another. This is because, on the one hand, Roulette trend betting strategy is applied to outside bets. Outside bets in Roulette pay what is known as even money or 1:1 which is far less risky than inside Roulette bets would be. The risk, however, does start to increase even within the relative safety of outside betting, when players begin to chase trends that haven’t happened yet without knowing when the trend will eventually hit. Some trends have been known to hit quite quickly while others can take a very long time. This could seriously damage your bankroll or even put you out of the game altogether.
Winnings are not guaranteed for the most part as it can be quite tricky predicting when a trend may strike or while a trend is happening, be able to jump on it and make a significant profit off of it. Winnings can be had if one manages to successfully catch a trend at the beginning stages or is lucky enough to predict a trend which pays off in sooner rather than later. Miss the trend or chase a trend for too long and any winnings will be far from guaranteed.
It is difficult to say for certain whether the Roulette trend betting strategy is worth it. On one hand it can be worth it if you know how to spot the trend or are lucky enough to catch one as it hits. It is also worth having a go if you are already betting extensively on the outside of the Roulette table. The trend betting system can be quite unpredictable though and can also be potentially ruinous to your bankroll.
