    If this is the wrong forum move it, please.

    I'm always curious, when a user says they're betting say, 1 unit... are they betting one unit, or are they betting to win 1 unit?

    I see a lot of cappers here going 1 to 1, and not accounting for the vig.

    On a -110 1 unit bet, are they saying they bet 110, or that their expected return on a win is $91?

    I'd love to see more transparency in the records, but I'm curious what the standard practice is.

    well this could have gone into any Sub Forum.

    anyway to answer your question, Yes some posters won't include the vig, and will only post a win / loss record
    does it really matter when it comes to NFL, CFB or NBA ?? yeah kind of, but most know it's -110

    Where it's really misleading is in MLB or NHL, because of the ML's
    Most will give a true record w/ Vig, but you will always find a few that don't
