    I'm afraid it's just going to be a piece of scrap paper in a few hours. But I would hedge it. At -320 he/she could lay 25,000 to win 7,812 on the fav and 25k on the dog. But of course, he/she might not have 25k in cash to do something like that. But hopefully they have been planning ahead and have borrowed the money necessary to get something out of it.

    Hedgin that bitch would be tough, I'd need to cash out some investments or get a loan to do so.

    I would go with the adjusted spread and max out on Florida state +3.5. Juice is sick but a when I hedge I like to leave open the possibility if winning both
    What I did learn is basic, one big bet , if win ok
    if you lose doublé down big bet , if win ok
    if you lose etc etc etc you know , the way, only thing is got the $,$$$.$$ money.
    I do like bet only one game per day, I don´t like bet more of one game,
    how much you want to win, so go for this is, no bet crazy or many games ? is fatal error !
    good luck amigos
    enjoy, relax and have fun !

    He could not ask for a better hedge opportunity than Florida State -7 2H. He's got a 4 point middle there

    I think it's the right side. FSU comes out and scores on the first drive.
