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: 2-0 yesterday lets roll.
2019 MLB Record YTD: 8-1 (+13.9 Units)
MLB Best Bets
San Diego Padres -140, *2.8 Units to win 2*
The D-Backs just put out a more strikeout friendly lineup then they could have vs the lefty Lucchessi. The Padres put out the opposite, expect Ray to get some strikeouts but also expect these Padres to fight. They are big favorites but I think they pull this one out and am confident enough to pay the -140.
Atlanta Braves -125, *2.5 Units to win 2*
The Braves are home against Lester and while there is a lefty on the hill, Lester showed some pretty poor reverse splits last season. Freddie Freeman and Ronald Acuna are in pretty good spots here, the Cubs certainly have fire power to throw at Terehan but the Braves should be able to outpace the Cubs in this one if they jump on Lester like they should.
