I know you asked for MGM-grnd, but here is my 2cents worth: I was told that roughly 3% of your bankroll is a unit.

MGM_grnd will probably clarify things up for you though.

I've been a firm believer of Money Management, u need to take your bankroll and divide it into Units. Each unit should represent 1% of your bankroll. So in your case with a $2,000 dollar bankroll each unit would be worth $20. Next u should decide a limit for the number of units u will risk on any given bet. Some people bet different amounts on different games. For bets that u are extremely confident they will bet up to 5 units and less confident would be a one unit bet.. Successfully bankroll management is the most important factor that will determine if U will be profitable betting on sports.

+1

your goal should be to never reload again(unless you empty it on purpose). You can't turn 2k into 10k overnight w/out risking going bankrupt.

There is nothing wrong with $20 bets to start with.  If you go up $500 in 6 months(25%), it may not seem like a lot, but you will be ahead of 99% of the people out there. I don't know how old you are but if you have a retirement account then you know that. 10% a year is great. In your case that would be $200 based on a 2k BR.

Set a hard cap on your bets and never go over it. My personal cap is 3%(those I maybe have 1x a month) Most of my bets are 1% and occasionally a 2% bet.

By setting up a cap, you keep yourself from committing the ultimate gambling sin, which is chasing your losses.

Remember to make sure you get $$$ out after a good streak. As an example: if you start with 2k, take $500 out when you hit 3k. Then readjust your bets accordingly. In this case you would have a $2500 BR so your base bet would be $25

Good luck

That's up to u sir.  As stated in this thread.. 
It boils down to Money Management .. Break it up into units 1% of your bankroll  And then decide on how many units risked based on your capping abilities for each game .. My bets range from 1-5 units per game .. But if I see something explosive .. I'll hammer a 20 unit play .. 

Goodluck.
