    I will be in Vegas next week and was wondering if I could cash MLB o/u win total bets (e.g., Braves > 74.5 wins or Rangers < 76.5 which I expect to occur next week) that have "won" even though the season will not have officially ended while I am in Vegas. I realize I could just mail them in but who wants to do that...Thanks for any replies.

    No. You have to wait til the end of the season. It usually prints that date on the ticket

    I had an over under ticket on mlb for a game that was over in the fifth inning. I was surprised we had to wait until the game was final. It didn't change the score. It only increased the over. But not the payout. A win is a win. At the time coming back within the next 60 days was not an option. We wanted to have cash in hand. We were silly. But yes, until the event is officially over its not over for the "bet".

    Just curious...does anyone know if Vegas books will allow a parlay of multiple O/Us for MLB teams?

    Some were incredibly predictable this season... (the above two are good examples).
    I would love to parlay 4 or 5 O/Us for MLB teams for 2019.

    I am pretty sure the answer is no. Generally, most prop bets cannot be parlayed

    I can confirm no on parlays as well - it is stated at the bottom of the legal sized paper the win totals are printed on. Might be a different story however for online books.

    Interesting thought I hadn't really considered. But the OP is asking about cashing actual printed tickets in Vegas
