    Would you hedge this bet?

    I have 15k payout pending on the Suns winning the championship between a regular bet and a big parlay payout.

    Do I hedge this bet or let it ride? I'm confident the Suns win but it would be a lot harder to hedge if they lose tomorrow and the price on Bucs goes to +200.

    You are 2 wins away form a big payout. Do you even have thousands of dollars sitting around and a book that will take the bet for Bucks for that much to hedge?

    Let it ride.

    You could "hedge" by betting Bucks to win Game 3

    Good chance you win both

    The book that you have the pending bets at would probably issue a temporary credit to allow a hedge.

    Yes I have money spread out in a few books. Maybe I'll just bet the Bucks ml a couple times like someone suggested.

    Wait until game 7 to decide anything. The Bucks are not going to win 4-5 nor 4 in a row.

    Any decent book would let you hedge that, limits wise. Bookmaker lets you bet 10k on Bucks +384 and Betonline lets you put 5k down on +380.

    If the payout is 15k and not the amount risked then its kind of a no brainer if you are worried a little right? 4k at bookmaker pays 15k. So no matter what team wins you make 11k. Then depending on a game by game situation you can bet and maybe make some of it back in the right situation.

    One in the hand is worth two in the bush, Gold.

    For those who don't plan or have a business around sportsbetting, for those that are just gamblers, they should take advantage of walking away with profit just about whenever they can.

    If you know you're going to be around to experience the longer term success, then the choice of risk vs. rewards under the backdrop of the law of large numbers becomes a different one.

    It's all about goals, Gold, and nobody posting at SBR sets them.

    Might let it ride. It would double my winnings for the year if Suns hold on, but I'm in a good spot regardless.

    11000 of it would be off a miracle 70 dollar parlay bet anyways.

    Hedge it now while it won't get cheaper. But you can "hedge" it with Bucks ML tonight and win both.
    If the Bucks win, both alive and paid for. If Bucks lose, your value goes way up and don't even have to hedge.

    If you wait for possible Bucks in Gms 3 then even 4, you are at risk of losing the wager.

    Scott Foster is ref tonight and Chris Paul is 0-11 with him reffing.

    Seems a good idea to bet Bucks tonight but I dunno.

    Like this again for game 4. Lose and you are up 3-1 returning home. I have a feeling the home team holds serve each game . Iíd recommend taking the bucks next game as a middle
