American Football Rules

Aside from the following special betting rules, the common betting rules apply. The special rules will take precedence over the common rules nevertheless.

1. Overtime

Unless otherwise stated, bets will be settled on the official result including overtime (result as declared by the American Football governing body).

2. Playing Time

If the match is abandoned before the end of the regular playing time, the results are regarded to be official after 55 minutes of playing time unless an official result is called by the American Football governing body before then. If not otherwise stated, this applies to all kinds of bets. An exception is, with Live Betting, the match must be completed for bets to stand. If the match is abandoned at any time, then all bets will be void except those that were already decided at the time of abandonment.

3. Date

All games must be played within one week of the scheduled calendar day (at venue) and at the scheduled venue. Otherwise, all bets on the game will be void.

4. Money Line

Where a match ends in a tie after overtime, bets on Money Line will be void.

5. Point Spread (Handicap)

The result used for settlement is the Money Line, adjusted for the Point Spread (handicap) line available at the time of bet placement. For example, Miami +3 @ Green Bay -3, result: Miami 21 Green Bay 25 - Green Bay wins on the point spread. 

In the event of the scores being level following the point spread being applied, the bet results in a Push and stakes are refunded. The Push rule does not apply to markets with a Point Spread tie available.

6. Total Points

Total Points are settled on the combination of both teams’ scores, inclusive of any overtime played. In the event of the total score being equal to the Total Points market, a Push rule applies. Overtime does not count for Half or Quarter specific Total Points markets.

7. Highest Scoring Quarter

All four Quarters of play must be completed. Overtime does not count. If the game is abandoned, all bets will be void unless, at the time of abandonment, the most points had already been scored within the 4th Quarter.

8. Highest Scoring Half

Both Halves of play must be completed. Overtime does not count. If the game is abandoned, then all bets will be void unless, at the time of abandonment, the most points had already been scored in the 2nd Half. 

9. Half-Time / Full-Time

Overtime does not count.

10. Highest Team Points (Group Betting)

If a team is involved in an abandoned event, the points that the team had made before abandonment count, and all bets are valid. If one of the involved teams’ matches does not start on the scheduled calendar day and at the scheduled venue, then all bets will be void.

11. Second Half

Bets placed on the Second Half will be decided on the basis of points scored in the second half. If the entire second half is not completed, all Second Half markets will be voided unless already determined. Overtime periods are counted in the second half score and considered official regardless of the length or suspension of the overtime period.

12. First Drive Will Result In

The drive is regarded to have started upon commencement of a first down. The drive is regarded to have ended when the attacking team either scores or loses possession of the ball without regaining the ball within the same play. 

Results are settled on the outcome of the respective offensive drive in progress. Only offensive statistics count. Kick-off returns and punt returns for touchdowns do not count as a drive. Only interceptions or fumbles constitute a turnover. Turnovers that are returned by the defence for a touchdown will be settled as a turnover. In the event of a safety, turnover on downs or time expiring, all bets are void for that market. 

All markets are settled on official stats from the American Football governing body. This rule also applies to bets on subsequent drives. 

There are 2 betting options:

  • Score. This will be the winning option if the attacking team scores.

  • “Any other outcome”.

13. Most Points Which Half

Unless otherwise stated, overtime does not count for the result. If the game is abandoned before 60 minutes of play, all bets will be void unless more points have been already scored in the 2nd Half, in which case, all bets stand.

14. No Draw Offered

If a money line, total or handicap bet ends in a draw and no odds have been offered for this option, all bets will be void.

15. Winning Margins

This is based on predicting the margin of victory by any given team in a match. Winning margin betting is from scratch.

Pre-Draft players are assigned to one playing position by us based on their probable playing position. The position that players are listed as by the relevant American Football governing body, and the position that they played in College, are irrelevant as these can often change. Final positions are not decided until a player reaches their destination team. Once a position assignment has been made by us, it is final. Others may be added to the market upon request, as long as they are not already assigned to another position.

38. NFL Head Coach Markets

For settlement purposes, the Super Bowl will be used to mark the end of the season for all head coach markets.

Should a head coach resign, retire, or be traded to another team, we will consider him fired for settlement purposes.
