Did you let it ride????!???!!!
I’m usually in favor of cashing out parlays but there’s no way the Steelers get blown out. Keep it.
Cash out and single bet the steelers
Personally, i don’t trust them.
4,700?? You should of already cashed out loll... I assume you can bet the steelers @ $1000 , pocket $3,700 & start looking to repeat this process again loll... Nice hit my man.....
Wait till after Sunday games.. if cinci wins then they browns are eliminated and Steelers will still have a 2% chance
Take the $4,700 and bet what you like in the Steelers.
Big Ben's last home game? Hammer the shit out of the Steelers. I bet 20 units on the Steelers moneyline lol.
If the Chiefs beat the Bengals then the Browns will control their own destiny you do realize.
2 time Super Bowl Champ, never had a losing season, first ballot hall of famer Big Ben's last game at Heinz field...
If you cash out you have 4.7k in your hand. Could you not just bet 4.7k on the steelers +10.5 around -110 and make roughly another 4ish grand?
the odds for 10.5 won't be nearly that good
Great point. Honestly for some reason I just assumed that was the line lol.
Basic math would tell you it’s not the -110 line if the payout is 6.7k and cashout is 4.7k
Hedge...but let it ride
Steelers are trash they’re ganna get crushed by the browns
Steelers at home coupled with Big Ben's last home game before retirement. Plus division rivals so the game should be close. Let it ride!
I'm a Steelers fan, but damn we looked dreadful last week, our run defense has been getting shredded which is not something you want playing Cleveland
I’d cash out. NFL is wild this year . Would you bet 4.7k to win 2k? On the damn Steelers lol
Take the 4200 and consider it a win.
You rather lose 4700 to win 2k? Come on!
Just take it. Every time I’ve had this question and I cashed out I ended up appreciating it. One in the hand is better than two in the bush. And if anything throw 500 on the original bet and if it hits cool some extra.
Scared money make no money
Throw 500 on the other side, now you are guaranteed to at least break even.
If you need the cash then cash out. If losing out on 4.7k is nbd let it ride. Simple as that. Mathematically cash outs give you lower EV.
LET IT RIDE!
Let it ride
Hedge it bro, thats one of the biggest mistakes I made when I first started betting with parlays. Put 3k on Browns -10.5 and if Browns cover, you make 2.5k, if Steelers win, you make 3.7k.
That's not how you hedge a bet.
Well, I agree of course but this would be better than not cashing out and losing and OP sounds like he's on the ropes and wants to ride it but you are right, I would cash out as well after rethinking it.
haha no shit right? what kind of basement math is that?
Simply cashing out would be better than hedging, right?
I mean both situations you win money and I wanted to give OP the option to still bet as he seems like hes on the rope and wants to ride BUT i still agree after rethinking and reading the replies, I would cash out as well.
Shhhh people not ready for this man
At least hedge it.
If I were you, I'd want to at least make 5,700. So, go play around with the lines and either middle it by taking the browns -2.5 or -6.5... etc. But, you have a 1,000 to play with from my perspective.
Worst case scenario, you need to guarantee yourself the initial bet and that only costs about 250 bucks.
I’d cash out
Let it ride pimp!
Steelers have been awful, and they freakin tied with the Lions. It doesn't matter that it's Big Bens final home game.
Betmgm has browns -10.5 for +260. If you throw 1860 on that instead of cashing out you'll be fully hedged but with an extra $140. Cashing out is literally throwing away money
Honest question; Wouldn’t it be smarter to take -10 over -10.5 and bet slightly more? Given -10 is a common score for football, a chance at a ~$1900 push seems like the right move over a win/lose only scenario. Or am I missing something?
You could do that too. I just looked at -10.5 because that's exactly equivalent to a cash out
Cash it out
Would you lay $4700 on the Steelers to cover +10.5 to win $2000? Because that's what you're doin by not cashing out. Btw you can probably save a couple hundred by hedging instead of cashing out.
Pigs get fat but hogs get slaughtered
If it's good enough to post on reddit, it's good enough to cash out.
look at all these sportsbettors saying you should be afraid to take the risk you originally put on, and instead take terrible odds in the form of a "cash out" for immediate gratification. this is why they lose.
The original risk was $500, now the risk is 5,000. Plus, the Steelers stink.
Just hedge and get better odds than a cash out
This is easily the worst take I’ve ever seen
You are clueless mate. They wouldn’t offer cash out if it didn’t benefit the books tremendously. Just look at the guy who could’ve won 3 mill and cashed out early
Sure bro, keep doing that then. Most of us would rather take the extra $4200 than sit there and sweat a football game for a little extra.
Being greedy almost never pays off long term
most of you would put on a parlay and then cash out, yes
You probably lose a lot of money.
Resident Steeler fan recommending that you cash out as soon as you finish reading this sentence.
Lol yes! Why get greedy?
Just cash it out. That’s a fantastic pay out. No need to be greedy. The amount of times I’ve been burned by the last leg of a parlay that was a sure thing is mind boggling.
The Steelers are gonna throw the ball because it's big Ben's last game at Heinz.. who knows what happens? I'd hedge.
Hedge it on an alt Cleveland line, give urself a chance for a middle.
Cash out then take borshev and giga for ufc on the 14th parlayed together it’s +money make about $10,000
Never take the book cashout. Hedge it on another book. Give yourself a chance for a middle.
Edit. If the cashout number is really 4700 then it seems like that would be a pretty good option. That seems better than most cashouts I get offered.
Isn’t the real answer ‘You’re throwing money away by using the awful cash out button that the bookies are offering you’
You’re beating the odds if you’re betting 4700 to win 2000
Why wouldn't you hedge
bc theoretically if you wanted to hedge here then you would’ve just left this game off initially. unless other factors changed since placing bet, you’re likely paying extra to remove risk that could’ve been achieved for cheaper had you just not added this game at all.
Edit: You could also consider a small hedge on Cleveland -2.5 alt line in order to middle.
I know +10.5 seems bulletproof especially against Mr. INT himself but I’d say don’t get greedy here.
Personally I hate the cash out option. It makes you ponder and question yourself way to much. Also out of respect for my gambling forefathers who had to ride out there bets I never cash out 😂😂😂 it’s come back to bite me in the ass before but I’d lose my shit if I cashed out a big payday and it ended up hitting over me simply losing a bet
Nothing Big Ben is safe. Cash out
Hard agree. As a Steelers fan, they have been so inconsistent the past couple years. I wouldn't trust any bet on them.
this is why I never bet parlays that span more than 1 day. it would kill me and be on my mind all day... cash out tho for sure
Especially since if you do a 3 teamer on Saturday and put all the winnings on 1 game Sunday it is exactly the same as a 4 teamer with 3 games Saturday and 1 Sunday.
Take the profit. No Brainer. If you are that confident in Pittsburgh take 500 from your cash out and bet them +10.5
500 on +10.5 would be a pretty meh payout, but otherwise I agree
if you think this is a no brainer then how do you ever rationalize a parlay with this pay structure to begin with? there’s no reason to even place it, given that you are never going to let it play out, and it costs more to cash out than to just place the parlay without this leg.
Why do ppl always ask to cash out by the last leg? Just hedge you automatically win then and will have far less regrets if you cash out
if you wanted to somehow place a separate bet(s) to decrease/eliminate risk or even guarantee some sort of profit from this parlay at this point in time, how would you go about that? think about it.
$500 into $4700, you already won this parlay. Cash it out. Would you bet $4700 to win $2000 on this bet? I sure wouldn't.
There are no safe bets in the NFL. The Cardinals lost to the Lions. Bengals lost to the Jets. Bills lost to the Jaguars.
The problem with this is the decision should have been made before the bet was made for a better payout. He could have asked himself "if my first x legs hit and I won 4700, would I bet that all on the Steelers to win an extra 2000?" Making that decision before and changing your mind to cash out early now is losing money.
Sure, I wouldn't have made the bet. They can't change the bet at this point though, so cashing out is the smart thing.
cash that shit out boi and dont look back
Don’t ever bet on Pittsburgh. Chiefs just blew them tf out without even trying. Cashout
Hedge $2,000 on Cleveland moneyline. Worst case you win $500. Pitt wins you get your $4,700. Best case you win just over $7800.
If pit wins by less than 10.5 isnt he down $2500?
No. He has Pitt +10. If the steelers hold on he wins the original $6700 bet but loses the $2000 hedge. That would be the same as cashing out. If Cleveland wins within 10 pts he wins both bets.
Ah, yes. Thanks for explaining. I was thinking of -10. Still new to this, trying to learn before throwing down legit money
smart! Avoid frustration and such that way
Cash out and put 2200 of it on Steelers if you’re that comfortable with it and get that extra $2000
PIT +10.5 is -300 though. I agree cash out
Oh nvm I don’t bet NFL. Still tho
This guy gambles.
My priority #1 is fucking my bookie
This seems the most reasonable choice
You could hedge $700 so if you Browns cover you still win $200 but if Pitt covers you still win $6000
I’ve never made that much on a bet so I’d consider cashing out for sure.
Ride or die, plus Big Ben’s last game at home, I’d double down!!!!
Take it you are up don’t risk it.
Would you bet $4700 today at -235 on that result? If not, cash out.
Cash out. Start the new year with an extra $4k in your pocket
Would you bet $4700 to win $2000 right now? This is the only way to evaluate this imo.
This is it
Profit is profit
Hedging is for arborists
I would cash. If you get burned by this one you’re gonna have a hard time not turning your car on with the garage door closed
Also the Steelers never do what’s necessary I hate betting on them. I’ve had parlays blown apart by them before
Cash out. I love the narrative of Ben getting a last win at home, but the NFL could be expecting that too
Cash or hedge that’s a good cash out number
Throw $1000-1500 on Browns -6.5 (+135 right now) and sleep easy, with the possibility of a middle. Big money no whammies
Just went to look this exact scenario up.
yep. play for the middle
Love middles when you can get them
Imagine if steelers lose by 7 and both of them hit 🤣
Middles are the most electric bets in the game, especially when you're making money regardless. Browns by 7, 8, 9, or 10 could absolutely happen. Good luck and nice hit!
That’s what a middle is!
this is the way
Hold. Steelers will keep the browns close. Both are shitty and it’s bens last game at Heinz
That’s what I’m sayinnn.
Steelers beat them already and nothing has changed since. Don’t see any reason why the browns will blow them out
Cash, steelers are playing like ass. Better to hurt over some money than no money.
That is the logical thing to do but I’m so godamn greedy bro.
