Should I Hedge My Bet?

The question of when should you hedge, and how much should you hedge is really a question of "What is the best thing to do for my ultimate bankroll growth?"

Framed as such, we have developed this simple Hedge Betting Calculator to help you determine the answer that's best for you.

You enter your current bankroll. Since the original wager you are considering hedging against has already been made, your bankroll number would reflect the figure if the original wager were to lose. Then you enter the current win probability of that original wager.

Next enter the amount you stand to win on the original wager (stake included since it is not part of the bankroll figure). Finally, enter the currently available hedge odds available to you.

The output represents your optimal hedge information for bankroll growth.

Why should I hedge a bet?

Hedging a sports bet is a way to reduce the risk of a bet by placing additional bets on the opposite outcome of the original bet. This can be a useful strategy if you are unsure about the outcome of a game or if you want to protect your profits. By hedging your bet, you can minimize your potential losses and potentially make a profit no matter what the outcome of the game is. It's important to note, however, that hedging a bet will also reduce your potential profits, as you are essentially cancelling out your original bet.

Can you profit from hedging bets?

It is possible to profit from hedging sports bets, but it requires skill and strategic thinking. By hedging a bet, you are reducing your potential profits in exchange for reducing your potential losses. This can be a good trade-off if you are unsure about the outcome of a game or if you want to protect your profits.

To profit from hedging, you need to be able to accurately assess the probability of different outcomes occurring and be able to place your bets in a way that minimizes your potential losses while still allowing you to potentially make a profit.
