Each bettor has 5 units(u) to bet each event. 5 units should be the maximum you bet on a card. So if you bet $100 a card, each unit is $20 for you. If you bet $10 a card, each unit is $2.

Bio: Has been betting on MMA for about 2 years now. When he found out it was a thing to sell picks it inspired him to eventually start tracking via a 3rd party. He’s been on for almost 4 months now. Can’t say that he’s happy with where he’s at, but feels like he’s learned so much in the small amount of time since he started treating handicapping as more than a hobby. Is a student, so the surprising amount of free time comes in handy.
