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: 3-1 (+6.8 Units)
My Notes: Winning feels good lets keep doing it.
NBA Best Bets
Brooklyn Nets -2 -110, *3.3 Units to win 3*
The Pistons are on the back end of a back-to-back and will be playing their fourth game in six nights. The travel from Detroit to Brooklyn isn’t much but Brooklyn should be pretty resting having played only once between Thursday and Today. The Nets have the home court advantage and while they will certainly have their hands full with the twin towers, their guards are in a pretty good position to do some damage.
Sacramento Kings +2 -110, *2.2 Units to win 2*
The Kings are across the country but they will be catching a Wizards team playing their fourth game in six nights. It’s not a back-to-back to but the Wizards have struggled defensively all year and after going to overtime against the Timberwolves in their last game if the Wizards show any signs of fatigue and fail to keep up with the scoring they could easy fall behind and lose this game.
Oklahoma City Thunder +3 -110, *2.2 Units to win 2*
The Thunder are still in the midst of their road trip but they have had two full days off after a grueling stretch of five games in seven nights. I expect the Thunder to bounce back big here are losing to the Clippers in their last contest. The Jazz have had a fairly light schedule in terms of rest but it’s tough to pass up on the points from the Thunder in this one.
