    So I live here in lake tahoe, NV and put a 20 dollar bet on Soderling a couple weeks ago. He was a 30/1 underdog.

    If he wins tomorrow, I win 600 (plus my 20 back)


    here is the question:

    Nadal is a huge fave Sunday -450, so in betting terms you have to bet 4.50 just to win 1 dollar.
    I could hedge my bet, put 450 on Dollar and no matter what, I have a GUARANTEED 100 dollars won.


    Or should I just hope for Soderling to take it and end up with 600 or Nada?

    What would you do?

    If you really like Soderling and think hes gonna win just drop 90 on Nadal, that way you win your 20 back, and max your payout if Soderling wins.

    Thats a good position to be in though my man.
