The Sharp play would be Redskins in the Pool, and Giants ML for a couple hundred. Guaranteed money. Why not reward yourself for all of the great work you have already done to date? Just do it!

Redskins definitely have something to play for, win and in, unless Detroit and Green Bay tie.

Boz, did you make your suicide play yet? Let us know what you decided to do.

btw, regarding the host you talked about in a different thread, was she a good looking Russian?

Took the Redskins and I am placing a ML bet on the Giants for $200. Just waiting to see if the line will go up at all. I looked over the players left and 11 including me have Wash left. Many of the others only have dogs or small favorites so I'm hoping a few drop out. Assuming Wash wins, the hedge will have been worth it.

Go Redskins! That's astounding, that you're still standing out of such a large group. We'll done!

Hope you got +325 for that $200 Giants bet. Er, you did get the bet in, right?

BTW, the 16 teams you hadn't chosen yet went 6-10.

For all the people on this board that dont believe in hedging... this is a great example of why you should hedge when you can guarantee yourself a positive gain. Great job on the ml giants play. You made your money rather than kick yourself in the butt for not winning anything after 15 weeks of winning. You are a winner.

You might be onto something. I have seen people play bad and get there all the time for over 25 years!

My 2017 New Years Resolution is to try this... Play as bad as I can and hope to get there and perhaps this is the year I stiff everyone that I usually tip.. perhaps that will cover me if I lose at this popular strategy! I might even change my screen name to HedgeHog!

I'll use this picture that I stole off of the web as my user image!

So I am clearing $600 with the hedge which was a good idea. Still pissed at the effort the Redskins put in but it was also obvious the Giants didn't lie down like most expected. I will post how many ended in the money when the final results are posted.
