Calculate the units in sports betting
What are units in sports betting?
We are happy to explain that for you.
I make my tips based on units. I report my performance based wins and losses as well as units won and lost.
A unit is simply a measure of profit/loss. Since each person bets different amounts, overtips.com use the “unit” to describe a single bet. For some people, a unit may be $10 or £50. For others, it may be €500. All depends on the size of your bankroll. You need to pick a unit size that fits your bankroll.
A general rule that I use is to make 1 unit means 1% of your bankroll. So, if you have €1000 to wager, your unit size would be €10. For a 2 units play, you wild risk €20.
Rating The Tips – Units
I rate each tips as a 1 to 2.5 unit-play:
- 0.5 unit = 0.5% of bankroll
- 1 unit = 1% of bankroll
- 1.5 units = 1.5% of bankroll
- 2 units = 2% of bankroll
- 2.5 units = 2.5% of bankroll
