Weekly MLB Record and Units: The numbers don't seem to add up...

I just joined the site today and began following a user who is 45-29-2 this week in MLB picks. It says he is +17460 units in those 7 days. He plays 10 units per game. I can't understand how that record could accumulate so many units. Can someone please explain this to me?

Hey welcome to the forum! The amount won represents dollars at $100 per unit..so anyone betting 10 units a game is betting $1,000 per game so the 17,000 is dollars and he is up about 17 units...hope that helps..glad you joined us and hope you stick around for a while..

Yes when we built the tracker we used a 100 as a unit this way we dont have decimal places etc.. if we used 1=1 then a loss on a -170 favorite would be -1.7 just doesnt look as clean.

I think the best indicator is win%

so if the ratio is $100 per unit, youre telling me that Dylan is +$1,522,000 right now? 1.5 million dollars? Please explain

    $100 per unit - he's betting 10 units per game, or $1,000...he's up about 15 units or $15,000

    Finance is correct put a $ in front of that number and thats what he would be up if he was betting $100 per unit...So 10 units is $1000 (our highest allowable bet amount per pick)

    The amount displayed on the rightside of the forum is also the last 7 days.
