Hey all, so if the saints cover I'm 5/6 with Pitt -3 the last leg.

I've got $40 to win $1817.

I don't wanna jinx the saints, but if they cover, do I hedge the Pitt game?

This is the closest I've come to a 6teamer and need advice!!!

Thanks in advance!

when ever you have a chance to make money off the books then do it..

Place 900 on the other way and lock in a $900 profit from 940 outlay.. thats a good day at the office !!

Be smart, not greedy !!

Never hedge.  It comes at a price:

Thanks for the advice.  I'm going to hedge for at least 600-700.  I have a feeling Steelers cover...

Can't let myself get fucked again out of this much money.  I learned my lesson last week with a 3 team underdog ML parlay that I didn't hedge and lost out on $900.

Going to guarantee myself a payout here.

I remember reading that thread back in the day.  I've just never hit a 6 teamer, let alone come this close, so I think I've got to take guaranteed money. 

Thanks for your input though.

Why would you include Pitt in the 1st place for the night game if you planned on hedging when the game starts

hedge 1/2 in this situation. pitt lost the qb. so be sure you win the same amout doesn't matter the outcome. you dont want Leftwich fvck you over couple hundred. in the normal case, i would do 5, 6 bills hedge but pitts in this QB situation, i would do 50% hedge.

Hedge the equal amount of money.. I dont think PIT cover this line..

Sit back and enjoy the game knowing your going to win $900 either way = BEST FEELING EVER

Remember you started with $40

You could add baltimore in to a teaser with another team and have a shot at winning both.

wish you took ravens as your last leg. the hedge would have been even better.  you could have bought the half point and hedge steelers +3.5 and maybe hit both.  but thats ok. definately hedge this and go for a guarantee payout bro

dont do that. if baltimore wins and other teams in your new teaser lost, you are fvcked. just hedge 50%.

That's the key question here.  You either vow not to hedge when you make that bet, or you don't make that bet.  The only thing you accomplished by including that final game is to cut into your winnings.

my biggest losses have come from not hedging a bet then major tilt afterwards

definitely hedge 50%....nothing worse than coming up empty and losing the $40 to boot

Never hedge if you can win 6 teamers everyday. 
The math works before placing bet and for bookies only. 

At this moment, you have only 3 case:
win full amount
win 1/2 amount
and nothing.

Do the math and choose the smart option
