Open Parlay with 24 of 25 Sides Correct: Would You Hedge?

Share with:

Imagine you've correctly predicted the first 24 sides of a 25 team parlay and it all came down to one final game with a chance to win over $60,000. Would you let it ride or hedge to guarantee a profit?

While it might sound like an improbable scenario to find yourself in, a Heritage Sports (SBR rating A+) player was faced with that decision today.

The player created a 25 team open parlay on March 6 risking $25. He started with 11 picks on NHL puck-lines and nailed all of them. At that point he included some large favorite money lines in college basketball and stuck with his bread and butter NHL puck-lines to find himself down to one game with the opportunity to win $62,475.27.

The player's final pick was placed on an NHL money line (the Columbus Blue Jackets at -126). Back in the day, before sportsbook software could be navigated with a few presses on a smartphone, a player would have to pony up thousands to hedge and bet the opposite side to guarantee he walked away with a handsome payday. Fortunately for him, Heritage Sports has a free hedge option that the player was able to use to guarantee himself a $29,000 payday, regardless of the outcome of tonight's game. His wagering ticket is listed below.

What would you do if you were in this player's shoes? Would you have rolled the dice and let it ride or guaranteed yourself a nice profit? Discuss in SBR Forum.
