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: Missed a couple days had shit to do, lets get back to it.
Current MLB Record: 6-1 (+9.9 Units)
MLB Best Bets
New York Mets -130, *2.6 Units to win 2*
Full disclosure I’m a Met fan. The last time Vargas played these dudes he struck out seven across five innings only giving up two hits. Vargas is certainly a scaring one to back but the Marlins have some pretty putrid numbers against lefties. Meanwhile the Mets offense finally gets a righty from the gate and they should be able to produce enough runs support for Vargas and the Mets improved bullpen to seal the deal.
Seattle Mariners -115, *2.3 Units to win 2*
The Angels are going to have to prove to me they can hit lefties. They haven’t done much to improve their numbers against southpaws and Marco Gonzalez did a pretty good job against them last year. This Seattle Mariners offense is swinging a pretty good bat right now and while they lost last night the offensive consistent is worth backing.
