Hedge or not to hedge.....

Man, moral dilemma. Hammered Atlanta this morning off a tip from a friend offshore. Now the line is Atlanta -2.5, with Magic +120. Obviously I am not letting all the bets roll as my intention was to buy back alot of it and middle. Now my dilemma is do I take some Magic at +120 for some and Magic +2.5 for some and have the +120 bets offset the juice on the losers? Where are my math guys at! VR! VR! VR!

  • My best team of NBA is <a href="www.hawksportal.com/"> Atlanta Hawks </a> and I always follow them wherever they go if only have some time. I do not care if <a href="www.ticketsinventory.com/.../"> Hawks tickets </a> are always a little bit pricy but prices mean nothing to me when the matter is related to my favourite team. <a href="www.ticketsreview.com/.../"> Atlanta Hawks tickets </a> are pricy but we should never mind when we want to watch our favourite teams. Without doubt there are other NBA teams that are great teams too but I have a special love for Celtics and always do my best to attend their games.

  • Actually, they kept starters in until like 7 minutes to go in the 4th. They should have sat the starters to start the 4th or whole second half. Coach risked starters for a meaningless game.

  • Glad you bought some back - this game was sick to watch.  The Magic played their scrubs the whole fourth quarter and doubled the lead.  Guys like J.J. Reddick and Maurice Evans have no business covering this game.  Sorry man...

  • not hard enough. down 10.

  • they lose Matty, I am sending you back to Ireland.

  • ...already done!

  • Knock on wood O'Shea.....

  • Let it all ride on the Hawks - they win by 10+ points tonight.

  • I wussed out and bought some back +120 and some at +2.5.

  • To me, I hate the idea of hedging bets around a pick-em.  You're basically betting that Atlanta will win, why would you ever put money that Orlando will unless you really have a bad feeling about the game?  If it were a change from -2 to -6, I'd feel a lot more likely to hedge...
