I stand to win about 5k if Ohio St. Wins the tourney from a bracket pool.  It cost me 100  to enter.  What is the best way I can hedge ?

If Ohio State loses to Kansas you're screwed. 

On the final, if Ohio State is in it, you can guarantee a profit.

1k on kansas if they win i get my 1k profit ... if they lose im looking at 100 to win 4k... kentucky will probably be a -250 .. put 2.5k on ku to win 1k... then im looking at either 1.5 or 1 .. that locks up 1k profit anyway u look at it right ??

Take it game by game.

Put $1.5K on Kansas +2.5

You might catch the middle if OSU wins by 1 or 2


If not, you still have either $1.5K profit or the OSU wager riding for the final game.  If so, then you can bet (depending on the outcome of the other game) either Louisville at plus money for $1.5K or Kentucky ML for $2K.
