The Goal:

The simple objective is to win any 2 bets in a Series of no more than 6 wagers. When you archive your goal with 2 bets you start all over again.

The beauty of The 2-6 Straight Bet System is that you can win just 2 of any 6 bets (for a winning percentage of 33% in a Series and still attain a profit depending on the odds) Additionally, the wagers are predetermined, so there’s no guesswork regarding how much to lay on a particular game and only odds approximately -110 or less will be used.

The Pre-calculated amounts I'm gonna stick to are:

\$110, \$220, \$440, \$660, \$880 and \$1320.

So far I've tried it on NBA with good success on Underdogs so far.
Verified results (posted here on Covers) are two series:

Series I: 2-2, +310,3
Series II: 2-1, +307,29
Series III: 1-0 (Pending)

I'm still trying to figure out something for NBA Favorites and I'm also gonna try this on NHL Totals:

This looks like Tony Stoffo's money management system. Assuming you are playing totals or spreads with -110 odds, if you win game 1, lose the next 4, then win game 6 you lost money. You would have won \$1300 on the 2 wins and lost  \$2200 on the 4 losses for a net loss of \$900.

There are 15 possible winning series and on 5 of them you lose money, in addition to the 7 losing series of going 1-5 or 0-6. So in summary there are 22 possible outcomes and you lose money on 12 of them.

I'd really think carefully if you were to employ this. One bad 0-6 stretch and you are down \$3630.

no money management can turn a loosing system into a winning one. only unlimited bankroll and no limits at your bookie could..

Actually The 2-6 is just a modified version of the labaouchere system which has been around for as long as roulette, together with the 1-3, 1-4, 2-5, 2-8 and the reverse labaouchere systems.

You are right but it's not a betting system, it's a money management system.

This is certainly not something for everybody but it caught my attention since I'm that kinda guy that's either on a hot streak or ice cold. Just recently I had a 11-0 NHL run and I'm currently enjoying an 11-2 run on NHL Totals at the moment.

However when my good run is over I turn ice-cold and for every winner I pick, I pick 3-4 losers and that goes on for quite a while.

Wouldn't have been an issue if I had any kind of money management. Going 0-6 is inevitable but I rather lose \$3000 going 0-6 than 0-3. Thats a huge improvement for me.

I understand what you are saying. If I were using this system and went 0-5, I'd call it. Since you cannot acomplish your goal of 2 wins with just one game left, I'd take the loss and start a new series. The other adjustment that I'd consider is if you win the first bet collect your profit and start a new series. I say this because winning that first one followed by 3 or 4 losses makes for a losing series. Taking this further, if I lost game 1 but won game 2, I'd take the profit and start again. Anytime the series shows a profit, bank it and start new. Just my opinion.

Good luck and good call on the Hawks/Bruin under last night.

Yeah, its easy to get carried away and get greasy.
I learned it the hard way with my last NBA Favorite of the Day series.
I won the first bet, but kept going and lost the following 3 bets going negative on my bankroll instead of making a profit.

GL to you too!

Wait a minute. I thought once somebody proved that this system was a loser you wouldn't actually use it. 2 out of 6 is a loser moneywise. Are you still going through with it?

There is actually no such thing as "a loser moneywise" money management system.

Let's assume we are gonna use two different MM-systems to place NBA bets, one with straight flat bets and one with a progressive bets, like the 2-6 system. Let's also assume the line is always -110 and we are hitting 55% of all the bets. In the long-run you gonna end up with the same ROI% (+/- 0.1-1%)

The only difference is that you are taking much bigger risks in order to be able win more.

I think that's why you do this while breaking your bankroll into quarters so if the losing streak does come you only lose a quarter of your bankroll and can recoup
