Goon, that’s a decent strategy. I’m a fan of taking the Under on a game, then if it’s goes like 3-0 or 7-3 after the first quarter hammering the in game Over. A lot of times you can get a nearly 10 point window to middle and win both bets. But at the very least, you are almost guaranteed a split. Same principle applies to taking the Over and hoping it is high scoring early then taking in game Under. But the books don’t adjust quite as drastically that direction for some reason.
If the game goes to script, just ride out the initial bet.
