Maybe it's their new way to discourage arbing. It could also have been a Value Bet that they voided for many, but at least I would not have lost the other side.

    GL!
    Hi Barnstorm,
    I've never had a book void a bet after an event unless it was a very obvious bad line. Could you give us some details on what kind of bet it was and which book it was at?

    It was Bovada, not some shady Russian Book. I tried to reason with them, and point out that they changed this -200 line up and down many times before the game, so that proves that they reviewed the line and didn't think it was a mistake or a bad line at that time but did so after the game ended and it won. Other Books had it at -250. Bovada claimed their line should have been between -275 and -300.

    I think some Books might try to set some trap games like this to see who their obvious Arbers and Value Bettors are.

    So the line moved repeatedly, you bet it, and then after the game they cancelled it? -200 when other books have -250 is not a "bad" line. Anyone who is price shopping for that game is going to bet that. Have you considered filing an SBR complaint?

    Right.

    Yeah, I should have filed a complaint with SBR, but it's been over a year now.

    Well it's good to know. I've bet lines like that at Bovada and they never canceled them but I will be wary for it. Thanks for sharing.

    Yes, I eventually got banned by CaribSports, WagerWeb, and GTBets, And warned by 5Dimes and Bovada. I still have BetOnline, Fairlay and MyBookie. And I still have accounts but am not active with Intertops, YouWager, Bookmaker, etc., and Bitcoin Books NitrogenSports, Bitcoin Rush, BetBTC and BetcoinSports. I also lost a lot to a Bitcoin Book called PowerBet.io that took the money and ran.
