    Ok so I am a gambler and will be the first to state that when it comes to hedging futures everyone has their own opinion on it. In a normal betting sense, if you have a +ev scenario you should be completely fine holding the ticket and not hedging. In this scenario with such large potential winnings I personally would’ve hedged some of it. Now whether to sell the ticket for $75k or not- once again a personal decision.

    Unfortunately or fortunately, these types of winnings will be broadcast more now that sports betting has become legal in so many states. For those of us that spend a ton of time handicapping games investing in futures tickets, building models, etc. we look at it as a guy that bet on his team with some extra $ in Vegas and was gonna ride it to the end.

    A few years ago I was sitting at the MGM book betting college football and three ladies sat next to me with thick British accents. They we’re cheering on Leichester City and had each just put $100 down for them to win the EPL. I’ll never forget the conversation- they go to Vegas every year at the beginning of the season, it’ll never happen but they grew up there and still live there. Well that year it happened. They were a massive long shot.

    It happens but now that it’s becoming more mainstream we are hearing about it.

    sharkattack I love Trap Bar deadlifts!

    The parade was fukcin' AWESOME! So much fun!! the Blues really got up close and personal with their fans. 1,500,000 people joined me in the celebration of the Blues's first (of more to come) Stanley Cup.

    Did anyone else here go, or was I the only one from the beeb to be there?

    Don't know anybody who went but congrats to your team and you for being there. Hard to say for a Bruins fan.

    Cautiously optimistic for my Devils this year. They had a big off-season for sure with a lot of new talent!! Lets see if they can gel......

    Should be fun watching the kids play and hopefully sort things out some this season. Get rid of some ugly contracts next year and make a step forwards. Oh I bleed blue … lol
