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: 10-3 (+19.4 Units)
My Notes: Winning feels good lets keep doing it.
NBA Best Bets
Charlotte Hornets +4 -110, *3.3 Units to win 3*
The Hornets barely squeezed out a victory against these Wizards in Charlotte on the 8th but the Hornets have been off for three days and should be well rested. The Wizards have been playing well but 3.5 points seems like a lot to be getting for two bad defensive teams. I’ll gladly take the points here with the well rested team in the that’s two games out of the eight seed in the east.
Milwaukee Bucks -5 -110, *2.2 Units to win 2*
This feels like a square bet as I would imagine the public is going to be all over this one but how do we not like the Bucks at only -5 coming off of two days rest. The Heat are on a day off and aren’t really battling their schedule at the moment but one would think that the Heat are just a better overall team. This spread just feels too low for one of the best teams in the east coming in well rested.
