# Volleyball betting according to Mazharov’s strategy

To play according to Mazharov’s strategy, you need to know the rules and understand volleyball.

The classic catch-up is taken as a basis with an increase in the amount of each next bet after a loss so much as to cover previous losses and reach at least a minimal plus.

A volleyball match lasts from 3 to 5 sets. The first four games are played up to 25 points scored by one team, the decisive set goes up to 15 points. With scores of 24:24 (14:14 in the 5th game), the game goes to a tie-break, in which you need to take the lead with a difference of two points. The winner of the match is the team that manages to win three sets.

The task of the forecaster for betting on Mazharov’s strategy is to find live matches, the score of which in the game is 23:23. It is clear that sooner or later the set will end, and from that moment on, the player begins to use catch-up with bets on total less.

Example:

1st bet: Under (48.5), odds. 2.15 for \$10. Loss (in the bank -10 dollars).

2nd bet: Under (50.5), odds. 2.15 for \$20. Loss (-30 dollars).

3rd bet: Under (52.5), odds. 2.15 for \$35. Loss (-65 dollars).

4th bet: Under (54.5), odds. 2.15 for \$65. Win (+\$9.75).

So, the game ended with the score 28:26. It was possible to win the bet only on the fourth step, and this is not the limit. In total, I had to bet 130 dollars, earning 9.75 USD net in just 5-7 minutes.

As you can see, it is not necessary to multiply the size of the bet at all if you flirt with odds above 2.01. Usually, in matches of equal class opponents in such cases, bookmakers do not offer quotes lower, which makes Mazharov’s strategy really profitable even at a short distance.
Mazharov’s win-win strategy cannot be called, because it happens when even a large amount on the balance sheet may not be enough to take 10 or more steps to success.
