Baseball

Official Game Time

Winners and Losers are official after 5 innings of play unless the home team is leading after 4½ innings. If a game is called or suspended, the score after the last full inning determines the winner. If the home team scores to tie - or takes the lead in the bottom half of the inning and the inning is not completed, the score at the time the game is called determines the winner. Monies will be refunded if the home team ties the game and it is then suspended. Events will not carry over to the following day (unless otherwise specified). BETDSI does not recognize suspended games, protests, overturned decisions, etc. for betting purposes.

When betting on the total runs (over/under) the game must go 9 innings (8½ if the home team is ahead) to have action. Wagers on total runs will be refunded if a pitcher change occurs prior to both listed pitchers throwing at least one pitch. Rules for the run line wagers are the same as those for baseball totals.

Game must be played on scheduled date and site.

**During the MLB Playoffs, games all wagers will have action until the game is played to completion, regardless of their duration or the day on which they end.** 

Pitcher Selection

Baseball wagers will be accepted in the following manner:

Action
Team against team, regardless of the starting pitcher. "Action" bets will be computed by the opening price with the new pitcher. A pitcher is deemed a starting pitcher after throwing one pitch.
Overnight Baseball
Due to scheduling changes, an overnight game may become part of a doubleheader. When this occurs, all overnight bets are action if originally listed pitchers square off in either game.
One specified pitcher
A wager on or against a specified pitcher, regardless of the other starting pitcher.
Both specified pitchers (listed)
If starting pitchers are not exactly as listed on betting display board and/or your ticket, your bet will be deemed "no action".
Note:
If there is a pitching change prior to the game, money odds may be adjusted. If one scheduled pitcher starts against any unscheduled pitcher, "action" wagers will be computed by the opening price with the new pitcher. A pitcher is deemed a starting pitcher after throwing one pitch.

Baseball Betting | Money Line

Betting on baseball is done by risking more money than the win amount on favorites (Mets) or risking less to win more on dogs or underdogs (teams not favored to win).

BETDSI offers a unique $0.10 Progressive Baseball Money Line where your odds are tighter on closely handicapped games giveing you better odds.

  • -105 to -140 10 Cents
  • -145 to -170 15 Cents
  • -175 to -185 20 Cents
  • -200 30 Cents
  • -210 35 Cents
  • -220 to -285 40 Cents
  • -300 50 Cents
  • -320 to -360 60 Cents
  • Overnight Lines are 20 Cents until 7:30am(PT)
Example:
Mets - 140
Reds + 120
  • If you wager on the Mets -140 you lay $140 to win $100. If you wager on the Reds +120 you lay $100 to win $120.

Baseball Betting | Totals Over/Under

There is a standard 20 cent line.

Example:
Mets 7 over -120
7 under Even Money
  • If you take the Mets over 7 runs you lay $120 to win $100. If you take the Reds under 7 you lay $100 to win $100 (even money). The team doesn't matter. You are only betting on the total runs of the game.

Baseball Betting | Run Line Betting

A baseball Run Line bet is a combination of the point spread and the money line. The team wagered on must win by the point spread while the amount wagered is determined by the money line odds.

Example:
Braves -1 1/2 +130
Pirates +1 1/2 -150
  • If you wager on the Braves you must win by 2 or more runs. You would lay $100 to win $130.
  • If you wager on the Pirates they cannot lose by 2 or more runs. You would lay $150 to win $100.

Baseball Betting | Parlays

Remeber, when placing a parlay on baseball, you can not combine run lines and totals of the same team on the same parlay, as they are considered correlated wagers.

The following chart can be used to calculate the payoff on baseball betting parlays. You can select from 2 to 15 teams. Use the factor corresponding to the line if you are betting on the favorite; if betting on the underdog add 1 to the line. Maximum parlay payout is $ 150,000

Example:
Taking the Pirates +220 and the Braves -135 in a 2 team parlay for $100 100(wager) x 3.2 x 1.74 - 100(wager)= $457
Example:
3 team parlay taking the Red Sox +148, Mets EVEN and Texas -119 for $100 100(wager) x 2.48 x 2.00 x 1.840 - 100(wager)= $813

Soccer

Scored Official

All match odds are based on the result at the end of a scheduled 90 minutes play, unless otherwise stated. Bets are settled on the score standing at the end of the scheduled "90 minutes" including any added injury or stoppage time. This scheduled period does not include extra time, time allocated for a penalty shoot out or golden goal. Extra time prices may be introduced at the end of the scheduled period.

Matches postponed, brought forward or abandoned

An unplayed or postponed match will be treated as a "non-runner" for settling purposes unless it is played within the same week (ending on Sunday), in which case the bet will stand unless cancelled by mutual consent.If a match is rescheduled from the weekend to a Monday night for the purpose of live TV coverage, all bets on that match will stand.Should any match(es) listed on the website coupon be played prior to the date or kick-off time denoted, any such match(es) may be included provided the wager is placed not later than the revised kick-off time.Any soccer match abandoned before the completion of 90 minutes play will be void, (unless the match is rearranged and played the following day in which case bets will stand) except for those bets the outcome of which has already been determined at the time of abandonment. For example, First Player to Score or Time of the First Goal bets will stand provided a goal has been scored at the time of abandonment.The only exception to the above abandoned match rule is for all South American domestic matches, where all bets will be settled on the score at the time of the abandonment, providing the relevant league allows the result to stand.The score at the end of 90 minutes play will be taken as the final result. Extra time will not be considered as part of a match. "Results" issued by the Pools Panel on postponed matches are not admissible and such matches are void.

Soccer Betting

Money line wagering on soccer offers a draw line as well as sides. In the event of a draw example: (1-1), all bets on either of the sides will be graded as losers. Again, in the event of a draw, only wagers placed on the draw line will be graded as a win. This rule does not apply to bet placed on the spread.

The result of the game is decided after 90 minutes of play plus injury time. Extra time / overtime / golden goal is not taken into consideration for soccer bets unless otherwise stipulated.

If any match is abandoned or postponed all bets will be void unless the relevant market result has already happened. For example, "first goal scorer" betting will stand if a goal has already been scored.

Where a venue is changed, bets will stand unless the game is to be player at the original away team’s ground in which case all bets will be void.

Matches not played as listed

Where the venue of any arranged match is changed the selection will be void.

Asian Handicap

"Handicap" (same as "spread" in the American sports) means a fictive head start given to one of the teams (by default the underdog) - virtually leading the game by 0.25 goal, 0.5 goal, 0.75 goal , 1 goal, 1.5 goal, etc. The punter must either back the favorite to beat this handicap or the underdog to hold it. The default handicap could be also 0 goals (level ball) when both teams are estimated as more or less equal. It looks abstract at first glance but not hard to comprehend.

The Asian Handicap bet is settled by adding the handicap to the actual result of the game.

For example if Wigan have received 0.5 goal advantage against Blackburn (Wigan +0.5) and the game ends with a draw, the bet on Wigan wins by half a goal. Bets on Blackburn are winning if Rovers just win no matter with what result, that simple. When we have -1.5 handicap the favorite must win the game at least by 2 goals margin, otherwise the underdog (+1.5) is winning by half or more goals. For 0, 1 and 2 goals handicap the bet result could be a virtual draw and in this case all stakes are refunded. For example if Man United are set one goal down to Middlesbrough and they win exactly by 1 goal, the Asian Handicap result is draw and all bets are settled as void.

In fact many Asian Handicap lines cover exactly the same thing as other betting options - no need to mention what -0.5 means, the 0 goals handicap is equal to "Draw No Bet", +0.5 is same as backing the underdog at "Double Chance", -1.5 is same as Euro Handicap (0:1). Odds are usually higher though as we underlined one of the main advantages of AH betting.

Before going further it is very important to note that in live (in-play) betting Asian Handicap bets usually apply only to the remaining time of the game and NOT to the whole 90 minutes. Anyway be sure to check the bookmake’rs rules first.

SPLIT HANDICAPS (Quarter Ball)

We got the base of Asian Handicap betting which is certainly not hard to be figured out. The only challenge in AH comes with the so-called "split" handicaps because lines like -0.25 or +1.75 look weird and confusing. Lacking a clear standard to display split handicaps doesn`t help, various bookies and sites use different formats to show one and the same thing so you can see 0.75 as "3/4" or "0.5, 1" ; 1.25 as "1 1/4" or "1, 1.5" etc. Not a problem though once we get the idea.

Now this is the key - note that 0.25 is average value between 0 and 0.5, 0.75 is average between 0.5 and 1, 1.25 is average between 1 and 1.5. Most bookies give a hint in the way they display handicaps like 0, 0.5 or 0.5, 1. In these cases the bet is virtually split in two separate handicap bets. For example, if you bet 10 EUR on -0.75 (-0.5, -1) goal handicap in fact you bet 5 EUR on -0.5 and 5 EUR on -1 goal handicap. If your team wins by 2-1, half of your bet (5 EUR) is winning with the given odds (that going for the -0.5 handicap) and the other half of your stake will be refunded.

One more example - lets say we bet 50 EUR on Torino +0.25 (0, +0.5) against Parma, odds 1.80. If Torino wins, it is clear that we will take 90 EUR. If the game ends with a draw, half of our stake is winning (25 EUR x 1.80 = 45 EUR) and the remaining 25 EUR are refunded, overall we get back 70 EUR. On the opposite, if we bet on Parma -0.25 (0, -0.5) and the game result is draw, half of our bet (-0.5) will be lost and the other half (25 EUR) will be refunded.

GOAL LINES (Totals)

Asian goal lines (betting on the total number of goals scored in a game) are quite alike the classic under / over bets but here you can find more different lines as 1.75 goals, 2.25 goals etc. which work with the same idea as the split handicaps. Just something that must be mentioned, in live betting unlike Asian Handicap goal lines apply to the whole 90 minutes.

Line Types

We offer 3 different types of lines for Hockey; The Canadian Line, 3 Way Option, and Straight Money Lines.

Hockey Betting | Canadian Line

The Canadian line is a combination of a goal and money line. The money line is a 20 cent line for straight bets.

Example:
Boston Bruins +1 1/2 -140
L.A. Kings -1 1/2 +120
  • If betting on the Kings the customer would give-up a goal and a half and would risk $100 to win $120, the Kings must win by at least two goals. If betting on the Bruins the customer would get a goal and half but would risk $140 to win $100.

Hockey Betting | Money Line

All money line options are prices to win the game outright, according to NHL rules.

Example:
Boston Bruins +110
L.A. Kings -130
  • If you select the Bruins to win the game, betting $100 would win you $110. If you select the Kings to win, you would need to risk $130 to win $100.

Hockey Betting | Totals Over/Under

Example:
Bruins +1 1/2 -140 5 OVER -130
Kings -1 1/2 +120
  • As well as having favorites on sides you also have favorites on totals, in this example over the total of five goals is indicated as the favorite in which case the customer would lay $130 to win $100. If betting on the game to go under five goals the customer goes with the underdog so he/she receives a larger return in this case risking $100 to win $110. If there is no money line indicated the total has a "FLAT" line or -110 whether betting over or under, in which case the customer would lay $110 to win $100 either way. When you wager on total goals, if the score falls on the number in this case five, it will be "no action".
