    Heynow Gamblers.....

    I have a couple futures tickets on season total wins. If by chance my teams were to reach the over number part way through the season can I collect early ?

    My thought is no, but logic would dictate the number has been met = payable.

    Thanks
    Rusty

    In my experience, you need to wait until after the last game even if your number already covered. My Arizona ticket covered while I was in town in November for the half-marathon last year and the book at the Bellagio told me it wasn't official until the regular season is over.

    Thanks......

    Makes sense I gues from a profit standpoint for the Book, hold my money longer, make more interest or however they keep it.

    And keep in mind, a certain number of games need to be played for there to be action. I have written in the past about not being able to cash a winning ticket on the Celtics when their final game of the season was cancelled. You always have to wait until the end of the season

    No kidding..........that's brutal. I can see that becoming more and more of a possibility with games being stopped due to weather/ lightning concerns. Had never thought about that sort of thing.

    Learn something new every day, thanks.

    Woo hoo.......won both my season over/under bets today with the Raiders getting to 6, my other was the Washington Huskies getting to 5.

    They didn't pay a ton, but beating the casinos is always fun. I'll keep my tickets until March when when we go back, will pretty much cover my sports betting BR for that trip. :thumbsup:

    That's what I love about making a few bets before you leave....it gives you the chance to start your next trip already ahead!
