Overall Plays (+6233)  312-224  L536 58% Should I be reading the unit return as 62.33.  If \$1,000 bet was made 536 times, the net dollar return would be \$62,330. Lastly, in my above four betting examples, would the unit value total be different if two bets were made for \$500 and the other two bets were made for \$1,000.
