A unit is basically a system for bettors to manage their bankroll. There is no true set number that a unit should be, it’s merely a protocol for bettors to measure growth.
However, a unit, for us, is 1% of your bankroll. If you have a bankroll of $1,000, then 1 unit is $10. It’s easier to understand, and easier to measure your ROI.
The unit amounts we post are what you should RISK. Regardless if the line is -120 or +140, our posted amount is always the RISK amount, not WIN amount.
With that said, the unit amount we post for each bet is only a suggestion as to what you should bet. If you don’t have as big of a bankroll, you can certainly bet more, but sports betting is a marathon, not a sprint. Therefore we take the approach of making money over the course of time. The way it should be looked at.
