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.
Current NBA Record: 0-0 (0 Units)
My Notes: Just one NBA bet tonight, got a busy day but lets get it nation!
NBA Best Bet
Los Angeles Clippers -2 -120, *4.8 Units to win 4* (Buy down to -2)
The Thunder are playing on the back end of a back-to-back (played in overtime last night) in addition to playing what will be their fifth game in seven nights. The Thunder are a better overall team but the Clippers are well rested and have more rest ahead of them. I’ll take my chances with the Clippers at home in this one.
