What happens to pending game bets?
This certainly isn’t the year’s first batch of delayed football games. Over 50 college games have experienced setbacks this season.
The NFL has seen its fair share of interruptions as well.
The Tennessee Titans, Buffalo Bills, Kansas City Chiefs and New England Patriots have faced the most obstacles thus far.
This pandemic is making fast friends of sportsbook refund policies.
The rescheduled games are set to take place a month down the line.
Due to this long postponement, most sportsbooks will refund the current bets on these games.
However, each sportsbook maintains different guidelines, so it’s important to verify specifics.
New lines are expected to be released in early December, leaving bettors plenty of time to deliberate on their wagers.
