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.

NBA Best Bets
Oklahoma City Thunder -6.5 -110, *2.2 Units to win 2*
The Grizzlies are not a very good team especially after they sold off a lot of the key pieces. The Thunder need some wins and PG13 provides a match-up nightmare for the Grizz. The Thunder are also working with two days rest while the Grizzlies (had one day off) will be playing their fourth game in six nights. The Thunder should be able to win this game fairly comfortably but laying points on the road is never fun so we will go lighter.
Orlando Magic +2 -110, *2.2 Units to win 2*
The Magic have had two full days off and have been at home. The 76ers are fairly rested but did just lose to the Hawks in Atlanta. It’s scary betting a team against a better team but we have some points to work with so lets go light and back the home dog.
