    1 unit is typically 1% of your bankroll. Someone's bankroll could be $100 or $1million, it just depends on how much you're willing to wager and/or lose. There are tons of websites and info about bankroll management online.

    I've been getting fucked on NBA betting with some late scratches. So annoying.

    Georgia was playing pretty decent until TN and Bama. Mizzou has had their own rough streak and in Athens I'm not sure what to expect.

    I went ahead and took Miz -3.5 but you’re right it could go either way.

    I don’t know how people make money on the nba. Every day random teams no show and get smoked. So frustrating.

    I just try to bet things that are fairly reliable. Lebron over assists. Curry over Points.

    I agree, teams are so fucking hot and cold. And so many late scratches. For example, you never know who is playing for the Nets until right before tip.

    i'm the fool that thought the freeplay money i earned for a referral on BOL was separate from my regular funds. so i needed to bet $1K more before i could withdraw. that was never going to happen.

    i put all of my remaining money on a +950 (i think) parlay:
    Zion Williamson of the New Orleans Pelicans will score 25 or more points against the Portland Trail Blazers
    Lonzo Ball of the New Orleans Pelicans will have over 5 assists
    Lonzo Ball of the New Orleans Pelicans will score over 2.5 three point field goals
    NO to win against POR

    At the half, Ball already has 4 threes and Zion has 14 with just one foul. NO is definitely going to win (up 10 w/ Portland on the second of a back-to-back/5 games in 7 days).

    Lonzo needs 5 second half assists. LFG.

    So I’ve been playing the expert freebies off of sports betting Twitter. NBA/cbr/nhl.

    really small ball since I don’t really know what I’m doing but I’m winning small amounts at a pretty good clip.

    what am I missing?

    Lonzo finished with 5 assists and NO lost on a game winning Lillard shot. Still feel like 10:1 was good odds on this.

    FD has a deal today where if you bet $25 or more on OSU or PSU ML, you get a 3 dollar free bet (up to $45) for each point they win by. Thus, if OSU wins by 10, you win your ML bet and get $30 in free bets.

    As a result of this promo, I am very wary that OSU wins/covers today. But I bet OSU ML anyway.

    I also took that FD boost for DJ, Koepka, Spieth, and Bryson to all make the cut. Bryson is currently 116th and this may be the happiest I've ever been about potentially losing a bet.

    I took tOSU too but think it's a trap.
