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: 5-2 (+9.6 Units)
My Notes: Winning feels good lets keep doing it.
NBA Best Bets
Portland Trailblazers -2 -120, *3.6 Units to win 3*
The Clippers have certainly been playing good basketball and are coming off of a big win at home over the Celtics. The Blazers however are coming into L.A. with two full days of rest and they won’t play again till Friday. This one certainly appears to be one of the more square bets of the day so we will buy the hook here and pay the extra juice.
Denver Nuggets -9.5 -110, *2.2 Units to win 2*
The Nuggets have had three days off and will be playing at home against a Timberwolves team that will be playing their third game if four nights. Karl Anthony-Towns is pretty big news here for sure but even if he plays the Nuggets should be able to handle these dudes in Denver where home-court advantage has an extra weight due to the altitude.
