Please don't.



Please don't let it ride?

Dude, I don't wanna put up 25 to make 10. Especially when 60% of my bet is paid for.

Bet the game straight up. If they win, great.

If they lose game one, then you take their future. Game one is meaningless, but the odds for the series will skyrocket for whoever loses.

At least cover the remaining 40% of the bet then.

I just don't see why you'd want to let it ride with all the ways you can hedge it and make substantial profit.

There's one way to hedge it to guarantee a substantial profit. And if the Bs win, it'll cost me a third of my winnings.

If it was -140, it's a easy call. -240? Not so much.

My hedge is a little easier. Got Vancouver 100/900 in October. Got Bruins 20/420 last June.

200/400 series play on Bruins

Bruins win +720
Vancouver win + 680

cool story. I'm still waiting for the profile of the woman who has sat behind the bench for the last decade or so who sips on the dunkin ice coffee and has been to pretty much every game since maybe Sullivan or Ftorek's tenure.
