Basketball Betting Rules



College and WNBA basketball games must go at least 35 minutes to have action.

NBA games must go at least 43 minutes to have action.

For wagering purposes, winners and losers are determined by the final score (including overtime), provided that the game has gone the minimum time as specified above. If a game is suspended after the minimum time has been played and not resumed the same day, then regardless of whether the game is completed at a later date, the score when the game is halted will determine the betting results.

If play is suspended before the minimum time has been reached and not resumed the same day, all bets will be scored as 'no action' and all monies refunded

Additional Rules:

  • All wagers on the game and all wagers on the second half will include overtime scoring.
  • A "Double Double" for purposes of Basketball props means ten or more in at least two of the following categories: Points, Rebounds, Assists, Blocks or Steals.
  • Wagers on fourth quarters do not include overtime scoring.
  • Unless noted before a contest, all events must be played on the scheduled date and at the scheduled site to have action.
  • Any teaser with a loss and an open leg is a loss.
  • These rules apply to both college and professional basketball.
  • A basketball team must play all 82 games for wagers on its season wins to have action.
