I'm not sure what your question is. If your bet happens to be the same way the market goes, you'll make money. If you buy stocks, you're betting they'll go up. So if they go up, you'll make money. If you sell them short, or you buy puts, then if they go down, you'll make money. It's like saying that if the roulette wheel comes up black, then it's easy to make money by betting on black, and if the roulette wheel comes up red, then it's easy to make money betting on red.
Since the market overall goes up, bull markets on average are stronger than bear markets, so betting against the market in a bear market doesn't make as much money as betting on the market in a bull market, but betting against the market in a bear market is still a profitable thing to do. The key, though, is that there's no way to know ahead of time when there's going to be a bear market. Like with the roulette wheel, although people who bet on red when the wheel comes up red win money, "Bet money on red when the wheel comes up red" is not a viable strategy. That's not how bets work.
Rookies don't generally bet against the market, but of those who do, and who happen to enter during a bear market, they make money. But I'm not sure what relevance you think this might have. If you're asking whether it's possible to commit to a particular strategy, and have a chance that everything will go your way and you'll make money just from chance, then yes.
