NFL Betting dispute: Packers vs Giants
A BetRevolution (SBR rating D+) player submits an NFL betting dispute. The player made a first half wager on the New York Giants, priced at -130, for $650. The bet was placed at 7:55PM, approximately 35 minutes before kick-off. The player claims that after the first half wager had been decided, his wager was cancelled with a generic note from BetRevolution.
BetRevolution note to player: "These automated cancellations are normally due to a pricing, transmission or similar error. If you have any concerns about the cancellation, please see our Rules or Contact Us.
The funds have been returned to your account and are available for you to bet. "
SBR verified that most sportsbooks closed at -150 for the first half moneyline, an approximate 20¢ difference, while one other prominent sportsbook also offered -130 at closing.
