Seem weird to anyone that the suspended game 5 in the World Series is counted as a final at sportsbook.com, and a 2-1 Phillies victory?

Is this "no suspended games" rule common for a book? Are those Vegas rules as well?

Agreed. Sportsinteraction has it right. The game hasn't ended. I know the house is powerful, but they ain't that influential.

Actually, it is the Vegas House rule and is positively in Sportsbook.com's rules. A suspended game is not suspended to them. They revert back to the last completed inning (as long as it is the 4.5 or completed 5th) and that is their final score.

But hey, at least they got a line on tonight's 3 innings.

Could be that Sportsinteraction just handles it differently or because my wager was a parlay with over/under involved.

This link confirms Pup's thoughts. Vegas reverts back to the previous half inning, which allows the Phillies to show as 2-1 winners.

Anyone remember the game where Robin Ventura hit a game-winning "single" for the Mets during a playoff game? I remember it quite well. :loadof: :thumbdown:
"It's all about winning for me, and I think the Cavs are committed to doing that," he said. "But at the same time I've given myself options to this point, and like I said before, me and my team, we have a game plan that we're going to execute, and we'll see what we get."

"We had a great time together."

For game 5, i parlayed the phillies SU and the under on bodog. It was 60 to win 130. I ended up with 90. Dont know why, but im not going to argue it.
