This is a question for all the veterans out there or anyone else who want to chime in..What is an adequate bankroll to start betting with? 
1000? 500? 300? 

is it whatever you can afford to lose? 

Do you start off betting one game a day and try to build your bank slowly or do you play multiple games and just try to hit 60% or better and turn a profit?

Do you always bet the same amount? or do you use a unit system?

Thanks for input

Bankroll is an investment, that you can afford to lose.

You don't have to win 60% to make money.

I typically structure units @2.5% of the roll, you can adjust this according to your betting style.

pick your poison. if u make 3000 or 4000 from your dayjob a month and your disposable income is 1000 or even 2000 then i'd say 1000 to start, but really its up to what makes you feel comfortable. Make sure you set aside emergency money for yourself/family. feel out your bookie or sports book and make sure it can actually payout. no point in putting 2000 in a sportsbook that isnt legit or has too many hurdles to get a check/payout. 

i've seen/heard too many sob stories. even poker (fulltilt) didnt pay out people.

if you want the full degen experience bet more than 20% a day.
you might lose sleep or be like this:  but you might be: 



know your teams, some teams lose 2nd games of B2B (see portland last night and heat tonight )


tonight the warriors @ PHIL was -320 money line, pretty easy to make dough if youre willing to risk 50% of your disposable monthly income. no brainer if you got the degen in you.

I live in Vegas.So I'm not really worried about the sportsbook not paying out.
