Now, my bookies site doesn't compute the winnings/losses of a compact round robin till all games have been played. If I look at my history on his site for wins/losses, the two teamer and 3 teamer parlays for Michigan, Iowa State and Kansas have not yet been calculated.I currently have a -\$196 balance with this bookie. My question is, how much, and which of the two remaining games would be wisest to hedge out of?Should I bet \$500 on both games the opposite way for max value? It seems to me it'd be smartest to bet \$500 on just the other way in the Marquette game. Reasoning behind this assumption is that if Marquette loses, I win the \$500 bet, and still have a chance to hit the Portland play. If that happens and I miss the Portland play, I probably am very close to a \$0 balance.What would you do? trustandfall PM trustandfallJoined: Dec 2011Posts: 1779 Veteran #2Posted: 3/14/2013 7:50:48 PMIf I've done my math correctly, I've won \$345 with \$550 remaining in bets.KansasIowa State - WIN         25/65Kansas Michigan   - WIN         25/65KansasMarquette KansasPortlandIowa State - WIN         25/65MichiganIowa StateMarquetteIowa StatePortlandMichiganMarquetteMichiganPortlandMarquettePortlandKansasMichiganIowa State - WIN     25/\$150\$550 remaining\$345 wonMaybe hedge \$750 in both remaining games?If they split I nearly break even, if either side covers (hedge bets or the round robin) I either win \$1500 from the hedge bets or \$3900-1500 = \$2400 from round robin hitting minus the hedge bets...What do you guys think?
