Baseball Rules

General Baseball Rules

All games must start on the scheduled date for bets to have action. If a game has been postponed or cancelled before its due start time, all bets are deemed void.

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.

Matches Not Played as Listed

If a match venue is changed, bets already placed will stand providing the home team is still designated as such. If the home and away team for a listed match are reversed, bets placed based on the original listing will be void.

4½ Innings Rule

  • If a game is "called" or suspended, bets can be settled after at least five innings of play, unless the home team is leading after 4.5 innings of play.

  • If a game is "called" or suspended, the winner is determined by the score after the last full innings. However, if the home team takes the lead at the bottom half of the innings, the winner is determined at the time the game is "called".

  • All games must start on the scheduled date for bets to have action. If a game has been postponed or cancelled before its due start time, all bets will be void. Similarly, if a game is carried over to a subsequent day, all bets will be void.

8½ Innings Rule

Total and run-line betting (Handicap betting) - The game must go at least 9 full innings (or 8½ innings if the home team is ahead) for bets to take action.

Exception: Where games are scheduled for 7 innings when played as part of a double-header, 7 innings must be completed (or 6½ innings if the home team is ahead) for bets to stand.

It is the client's responsibility to ensure they are aware of any relevant pitcher changes.

Pre Match Rules

Pre-game lines - Unless otherwise stated, all bets include extra innings.

Side betting (Money line) - Subject to 4½ innings rule.

Game totals/run-line - Subject to 8½ innings rule. Exception: Where games are scheduled for 7 innings when played as part of a double-header, 7 innings must be completed (or 6½ innings if the home team is ahead) for bets to stand.

5 Innings Wagering

All bets will be settled on the result after the first 5 innings of a game have been completed. If the 5 full innings are not completed, bets will take no action regardless of the score.

Individual Innings Betting

Innings betting refers to the specific inning only. The entire inning must be completed for bets to take action.

First Pitch Result

You are betting on whether the 1st Pitch in the game is a Strike or a Ball. In the event of the 1st Pitch being neither a called Strike, a called Ball (foul ball), or any other recorded fair hit (including a Home Run), is considered a Strike for wagering purposes. If a batter is Hit By Pitch, the result for wagering purposes is a Ball.

Pre-Game Props Including Player Props

Unless the bet settlement has already been determined, the 8½ innings rule applies. Extra innings count unless specified otherwise.

MLB Postseason Series Betting

Bets are void if the required minimum number of games (according to the respective governing organisations) are not completed or changed.

MLB Regular Season MLB Series Betting

Bets on MLB Regular Season Series are placed on the outcome of the first three games played in each Series. Pitchers cannot be listed; all wagers will take action irrespective of starting pitchers. Neither team can play another opponent between scheduled games. Only the first three games played count for betting purposes. Bets stand, provided a minimum of two games have been played. If two of the first three games are postponed or cancelled, all bets are void. Called games will count towards grading, provided it is officially declared a regulation game (4½ innings rule).

Outright, Pennant and Divisional Betting

All bets stand regardless of team relocation, team name change, season length or play-off format.

Hits(s)

To achieve a hit, the batter must reach first base before any fielder can either tag him with the ball, throw to another player protecting the base before the batter reaches it, or tag first base while carrying the ball. The hit is scored the moment the batter reaches first base safely; if he is put out while attempting to stretch his hit to a double or triple or home run on the same play, he still gets credit for a hit (according to the last base he reached safely on the play).If a batter reaches first base because of offensive interference by a preceding runner (including if a preceding runner is hit by a batted ball), he is also credited with a hit.
