Future sports bets and corona

Anyone know what their policy is? I have lots of nba future bets on bovada (over under wins, mvp, make/miss playoffs)

If they end up cancelling the season what happens to my bets?

Bumping for a random thought: sounds like the nba may expand the playoffs to 20 or 22 teams

I wonder if they will honor “make playoff” pre season future bets now?

Re: Future sports bets and corona

Has anyone ever heard of gamblers applying the "dividing a pot fairly" problem contemplated by Fermat and Pascal? It's obvious the sportsbooks aren't going to do it since math is hard, plus they're pretty clear about the season needing to be played. Anyway, I had a pair of win totals bets with a fellow gambler and he suggested it, much to my surprise. The long and short of it was that my Raptors side only needed one more win and was a virtual lock, I only had 29% equity in the Rockets getting over their total, using an average win probability over their final 14 games as calculated by 538.com.
In the end, the math exercise with a cumulative binomial distribution has me at an EV of +0.3482 units. Has anyone else ever done anything like that?

Re: Future sports bets and corona

I have a bet with a fellow gambler for a team X tw the stanley cup @+xxx made back in october....


We take the rules of the rules' page of pinnacle when an unexpected scenario in a bet happen like game stopped for rain in baseball , NC in a UFC bet o/u , injury in a tennis game etc .

On the rule page of pinny, they dont have a rule about stanley cup bet .... and they dont answer question about a bet that is not with them lol ....

Obv the Stanley cup is still going on , but under differents parameters. How would you settle that ? Bet is void , or still going on ?

These still have action everywhere that I bet them. Ditto for NBA.
