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: 19-8-2 (+21.7 Units)

My Notes: Timberwolves was just too easy last night.

NBA Best Bets

New Orleans Pelicans +9.5 -110, *4.4 Units to win 4*

The Rockets have had a night off but will hit the road to visit New Orleans in what will be their third game in four nights. The Pelicans are playing host and they have been off for three days waiting around. We are getting a lot of points at home for a team that may not be playing for anything, but have had three days rest.

Indiana Pacers +2 -110, *2.2 Units to win 2*

The Pacers will host the Nuggets with two days rest while the Nuggets finish out a four game road trip and play their third game in four nights. The Pacers are a team no ever enjoys betting on but they do have a schedule advantage here so I’ll go a little lighter and give em a shot.
