Default if sacramento wins, will sportsbooks clean up?

i just had a friend bet with me on the lakers -350 (my generous line), he also bet on the spread -7. i am interested what will happen to the sportsbooks if la loses.

it seems like only a moron would bet the lakers minus all that money. i had la-200 on series price before this sereies, like a fool i did not play the other side when up 1-0 (@+400!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!) after watching game 2 it seemed like sac had their number, and i only watched the first half. i did not watch the game 3 but reading the box score i could see that la was outplayed and outmanned. i knew my series price was a goner. i watched the first quarter of this game, and sac has more weapons, and bibby is a freak, who is 10000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000 times better than jason williams. i hope the sportsbooks really did get all that money on la on the $ line, bc even if they win, it is stupid to jack the underdog price up that high.

Nino, I had Det +112 vs Bos and after they won gm1 a took back 1/2 @+170(I think that is what it was not sure). Det was never the same and glad I saved most of my bet. I know most pros don't hedge or whatever, but I have to lock in $ when I can.
