At $600 go $30 a game and at $560 go $28. Hope this helps.

Sorry for posting as 3rd thread in a row but I just read the rest of the page and have some more comments.  
 
I doesn't matter how much you start with, if it's $100 or $10,000 the whole point of this is to take your profit when winning and never reload your bankroll.  
 
For me betting on sports is a hobby, I don't expect much from it. I start each season with $250 and go 5% on each bet. That way if I lose I don't care and if I win my $12.50 goes up.  
 
The last thing you want to do is have to bet $5 a game or reload your bankroll. I hear a lot of crap on these posts where people claim to bet $10,000 a game or $500 a game. Maybe it's true but I think a lot of it is bull.  
 
Pro's that do this for a living usually bet $500 to $1500 a game at max. For some reason I don't think too many pro's post on the covers forum.  
 
That's just my opinion, I could be wrong.

I don't know! I'm just basing off reading articles and books by the pro's. If you go to Vegas and bet $5,000 a game and win more than 52% then you'll get flagged. But if you place $500-$1500 at a couple different books it's easier to stay under the radar.  
 
So to answer your qustion, I really don't know, I'm just going off of 10 years of research and reading. Plus, I used to work for the local bookie and I saw a couple guy's get booted.

if its like a $150 bankroll (someone that plays for recreational), would 7.3% per bet work (11 to win 10)?

What about a 15 percent ratio bet/bankroll but a 50 percent cap on total dollars wagered any one time?

If you are betting baseball for the long haul I agree that you bet a set wager each bet. In football and basketball I usually go no more than 3 units. This way you avoid a major loss that takes 2-3 winners to get back.  Also never chase after a few loses. Come back the next day and regroup.

Remember it is not how much you bet it is are you having fun doing it.
