Use the units to determine both a confidence meter and a rubric on how much to wager. It is a good idea to keep units a metric to help you manage your bankroll and understand how much you’re up or down. You determine what the value of each unit is but it is important to try you’re best to stay consistent with the value of the unit. Going up or down based off of your available bankroll is fine but stay as disciplined as you can, bankroll management is just as important if not more the actual handicapping of games.
Keep in mind that there is juice to pay to the books so if a line is -110 that would mean you would need to risk 1.1 units to win 1.
For example: If one unit = $100, you would need to risk $110 to win $100 on a -110 bet.
My Notes: Pretty solid opening day, keep cashing!
Current NBA Record: 4-0 (+8.3 Units)
MLB Best Bets
St. Louis Cardinals +105, *2 Units to win 2.1*
Jack Flaherty takes the hill for the Cardinals, we know he has big time strikeout upside and we also know the Brewers while powerful can strikeout with the best of them. More importantly here we need Peralta to really show us something. He throws two pitches and gets by on strikeouts which the Cardinals don’t typically do a ton of. I’ll take the dog here on the road.
Los Angeles Angels +105, *2 Units to win 2.1*
Am I wrong for thinking Marco Estrada is worse than Matt Harvey? I hope not because I think Estrada is terrible and while this large ballpark should help him I don’t see how Trout doesn’t take this dude deep twice tonight. Harvey in a big park may be able to navigate himself out of trouble but Estrada could be in trouble here.
