Earlier this week, I stumbled upon an interesting thread on the Twitter dot com:
+86 units on a basketball season is impressive. Very impressive some would say. There’s just one issue:
136 unit play? For those of you who don’t know what a unit is, let me explain. In gambling 1 unit is typically your base play. Let’s say you are a $50 bettor, 1 unit would be a $50 bet. If you are a smart gambler, 1 unit is between 1-5% of your bankroll depending on how aggressive you want to be. Let’s say Darren Rovell is a conservative bettor and 1 unit is 1% of his bankroll. If he truly had a 136 unit play, that would be 136% of his bankroll. In our $50 example, that is $6800. Also, his bet was to win 136 units, so he would’ve had to lay 149.6 units. In our $50 example, that is $7480. You may be thinking, “there’s no way he did that!” That’s because you are smart. This is a classic example of padding your record to make it seem as if you are a better bettor than you actually are.
Rovell was called out on this:
The thread is a 12-parter and of course goes on to point out that without this 136-unit winner, Rovell would have been even on the season (he also had a 50 unit play, which he lost). Much different than up 86 units. Weird how 136-50 is 86, which is the amount he was up and gloating about on Twitter.
This isn’t the only thing that’s been going poorly for Rovell this week. He was body bagged by Mush:
For some reason Darren thought he owned the picture of this ticket, which had been shared on Twitter about a billion times by different accounts. This is ironic on about 1 trillion levels considering Rovell made his name off congregating content on his Twitter feed. There’s nothing wrong with that, just don’t complain when someone else does it.
Go Marty Go!
This then lead to this thread:
