Default Cold call small pair on button in family pot?

Loose 9 handed online game. Average about 40% to the flop with pots of 7-8 BBs.

1 fold; UTG+1 limps (way too loose: any ace, any med connectors); MP1 limps (too loose); MP2 limps (solid TAG); MP3 raises (unknown); 1 fold; hero on button with 44.

I generally avoid cold calling like the plague, but in this case I'm definitely going to get at least 4.5 to 1 (all limpers will call), and probably 5-1 or better. Can I play this for set value? Am I not discounting my implied odds enough for hitting and still losing the pot?

Easy call. Why would you need to discount implied odds? You can add some since you'll make a ton back when you hit. I would prefer it if he wasn't on your right but one can't have everything.

Easy call. Even if the blinds fold, everyone will call when it comes back to them, so you've made up 8 of the 20SBs you need, right there. Only 12 to go. So very, very profitable.
