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: 2-1 (+3.8 Units)
My Notes: The Suns backdoor cover was glorious but the Timberwolves screwed us in overtime. They had an eight point lead which would have given us the cover and of course Ariza hits a three at the end of the game and they only win by 5 which sucked but lets keep building.
NBA Best Bet
San Antonio Spurs -1 -110, *3.3 Units to win 3*
The Spurs have had three days off while Milwaukee is on a back-to-back and a 3/4 with travel. The Bucks are the better team but the Spurs have the schedule and home court advantage. Won’t be easy but the Spurs should be able to pull this one out especially if Milwaukee continues to baby their starting player’s minutes.
