I Heart Caffeine in Sports- Hockey Posted January 23, 2012 You'd have to bet $556 to get $900 back on the NE bet, guarenteeing you $334 (- the $25) so really $309 profit. I'd prob just let it ride, not really ever worth hedging on the favourite imo.That's also just your max SURE profit. You can obv hedge for way less, that way you still have a bit of a gamble. Like betting $300 on the pats would win you $186 if the Pats won, or you'd still win $600 if the Giants won. Hmm 786/2 = 393, better equity than the $309... there must be some sort of mathematical formula to figure out your best EV, I have no idea how to do it though.
