Interpreting our data
In the Sports Betting screen, you'll see a grid that lists all of the games for that date along with our predictions for them. Here is an overview of what everything means:
- Win % - This is the percent we expect each team to outright win the game
- Points - This is the number of points we expect each team to score on average
- Bet and Odds - This lists the odds your sportsbook is offering for the moneyline, spread, and total (over/under). The total for the game is listed in the "Bet" column. For MLB, we also show these three bets for the first 5-innings.
- Units - If we predict a bet to be profitable, then we will show a "unit" size (calculated using the Kelly Criterion) and highlight it green. We consider 1 unit to be 1% of your bankroll, but you can just use your standard bet size as long as it is an amount you are comfortable losing.
