Online sportsbook news update: Oddsmaker Sportsbook

Sportsbook Review provides an SBR iGaming News video update for Friday, July 19. Topics discussed in today’s online sportsbook news broadcast include the recent report on Oddsmaker Sportsbook (SBR rating F). Oddsmaker is a sportsbook that has confiscated more than $250,000 from winning players in their troubled history. Despite having a highly marketable URL and a coveted player base, the scam sportsbook has fleeced players whose only offense was beating the sportsbook linesmakers. Since publishing the report on Oddsmaker, decided feedback has come in from players who were victimized by the sportsbook, including one player who claims that $45,000 in winnings were erased.

SportsInteraction cancels tennis wager on stale line after match conclusion

SportsInteraction (SBR rating B-) canceled a player’s wager on the Wimbledon doubles match Mahut/Clement vs Fleming/Skupski. The winning wager, which he staked €110 on, was voided after the completion of the match. SportsInteraction’s position is that there was a clear odds error. At the time of the player’s wager, 5Dimes (SBR rating A+) had odds of 1.64 (or -156) on the match. The player’s ticket was for 1.83 (or -120).

However, the odds on the match opened at approximately -120, which is what the player wagered. The day before the doubles match, Nicolas Mahut played a marathon match with John Isner which ended up being decided 70-68 in the 5th set. Oddsmakers felt Nicolas’ physical endurance  after the record-breaking match would be a questionmark that should effect the price of the doubles match, so the market was updated. SportsInteraction failed to react to this odds change.

This is commonly referred to as a ‘stale line’. A stale line is a result of a linesmaker failing to update the odds of a particular event, as opposed to a ‘bad line’ which is a clear and obvious clerical error, such as a reversed pointspread or moneyline. In this case, SportsInteraction cited a bad line rule and voided the winning wager after the match ended. SportsInteraction has canceled bets after the events began before, as was done in this December 06 sportsbook dispute. As the odds the player accepted were in-line with the market at one point, SBR has suggested that SportsInteraction pay all wagers on the stale line. SBR will update this report pending SportsInteraction’s decision.
