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: Kyle Freeland and the Rockies sucked a fat one last night. We have a decent card some interesting value spots.
2019 MLB Record YTD: 17-9 (+17.1 Units)
MLB Best Bets
Arizona Diamondbacks -125, *2.5 Units to win 2*
The D-Backs are tough on lefties and the Padres will be throwing a slew of righties against Zack Greinke. The Padres offense is much improved this year but Greinke had a 4% increase in strikeouts against righties opposed to lefties. Greinke should probably be a larger favorite at home against Lauer.
Los Angeles Dodgers -140, *2.8 Units to win 2*
Chacin has always had trouble with lefty power and the Dodgers are loaded with it. After getting swept by the Cardinals the Dodgers are looking to right their ship and they should be able to get it done against Chacin at home.
