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: 1-0 (+4 Units)
My Notes: The Clippers showed us once again the importance of travel and schedule. The Thunder were on a B2B (off overtime) and a 5/7. The Thunder are the better team but not last night. Lets keep the momentum going.
NBA Best Bet
Minnesota Timberwolves -7 -110, *2.2 Units to win 2*
The Wizards played a tough game last night at home against the Hornets in Charlotte and tonight will be their third game in four nights. They then had to hop on the plane to visit Minnesota where they will be the Timberwolves who have had two days off. The Timberwolves do play tomorrow so I am a little concerned here that they don’t keep their foot on the pedal down the stretch but they should be able to cover the seven here at home.
Phoenix Suns +12.5 -110, *2.2 Units to win 2*
The Suns have won three straight and have had two days off. The Blazers have had a day off but are coming off a bad home loss in overtime against the Thunder. The Blazers are the better team for sure but 12.5 is a lot in the NBA and the Suns have been playing well lately.
