I figure 250 is what I could lose and not be too worried about it. I originally considered 500, but changed my mind because I WOULD be pissed if I lost that.

Yeah it would just be a matter of how much coin he could get together to place the bet. I think the money line was -330 for FSU so he would need a significant chunk of change to get a good return, but no risk. Obviously he would have to be an idiot to hedge with the spread, just saying would have been funny as s**t if he did and ended up losing twice. We are talking about an Auburn fan so anything is possible.

That isn't a hedge, he would have had to ML it to hedge it.

Damn ya'll are nitpicky today, but I guess I'll play along. By strict definition, “to hedge” means to reduce one’s risk of loss (a bet or speculation) by compensating transactions on the other side. Placing money on the spread would still be hedge just not a very good one, because you are reducing the risk of loss. A money line bet would eliminate the risk of loss, but of course that would require the money up front to place the money line bet. In this case he probablly would have needed about $77,000 to guarantee a win of about $23,000.
