Hey guys,
i dont really have any experience with hedging bets but i have 3 stanley cup futures that i placed at the beginning of the season and im looking to you guys for your opinions on what to do with these

I have:

Caps at +750
Sharks +1100
Kings +1600

I dont expect any of the three to win the cup this year,although the Kings could be a nice darkhorse of the 3.

Any help would be appreciated
Thanks

Horrible odds.

Parlay bos and van series odds and leave the sharks alone for now.

there's really not much you can do, it's too bad that every team you bet on is a huge underdog in the first round... you would barely get any value betting on the favorites to beat them

Don't really have the hedging option when all 3 of your teams are higher prices right now compared to the prices you have.

Just gotta ride it out and hope one of them can win a couple rounds. GL.

i agree....im thinking more along the lines of making a play on my teams if they are facing elimination but again the lines on that game will definitely not be in my favour...guess i may just have to ride it out

Thanks Rangerz....GL to your boys in the 1st round

Those odds are worse now than at the start of the season. No point in hedging now. Just pray one of those teams can make it to the 3rd round and then start hedging.

Who know 1 of those could hit. You never know. Like I put on the Giants to win the super bowl at the beginning of the last season. Who would have though Giants will win it all. GL with those 3's.
