    Sportsbook grading issue question, Please help!

    First of all, I bet these type of prop wagers all of the time. I always take the NO SCORE. Sometimes it is 5 minutes up until 7:30 like it was on Monday at betmania and hrwager. I think that the juice was also +150 on my side as well. First of all, both books graded it a win. Then late yesterday they changed it to a loss.


    Here is the wager STRAIGHT BET
    [47506] NO - SCORE 1ST 7 MINS +150 (BUFFALO BILLS vs NEW ENGLAND PATRIOTS - - Will there be a score in the 1st 7 minutes of the 1st Q?)



    I am talking about the New England/Buffalo game on Monday. And of course I was watching the game and the kick went through the uprights at 7:29 left in the first. Thus I won by 1 second. I have lost many of these by 1 second as well. Then I checked and the next kickoff occurred at 7:29 left in the first. Also notice that the kickoff was returned 13 yards in 5 seconds. That seems reasonable.

    Here is what ESPN says about the play by play


    • 4th and 2 at BUF 17 (7:29 - 1st) S.Gostkowski 35 yard field goal is GOOD, Center-J.Cardona, Holder-R.Allen
    • Punt8 plays, 35 yards, 5:25
      BUF0NE3


      • (7:24 - 1st) S.Gostkowski kicks 66 yards from NE 35 to BUF -1. D.Moore to BUF 13 for 14 yards (N.Ebner).


      Now here is what is says on NFL.com and I see the problem. Notice how it says BUFFALO AT 7:29 . That is exactly what it says for the kickoff or beginning of each possession.


      1. 4-2-BUF 17 (7:33) 3-S.Gostkowski 35 yard field goal is GOOD, Center-49-J.Cardona, Holder-6-R.Allen.
      2. BUF 0 NE 3 Plays: 11 Possession: 5:56
      3. Buffalo Bills at 07:29



      1. 3-S.Gostkowski kicks 66 yards from NE 35 to BUF -1. 17-D.Moore to BUF 13 for 14 yards (43-N.Ebner).
      2. 1-10-BUF 13 (7:24) (Shotgun) 5-T.Taylor pass short right to 10-R.Woods pushed ob at BUF 20 for 7 yards (23-P.Chung).




      Also note that IFFF the kickoff did occur at 7:33, then there is no way that the next play lasted 9 seconds on a 13 yard run. Plus I was watching the game on TV.




      Here is what covers says


      1st Quarter - 7:29 FG Patriots 3 - Bills 0
      Stephen Gostkowski 35 yd. field goal


      How could I convince them that NFL.com has made an error. Hell, in our squares contest that pays off each quarter and at 7:30 of each quarter, 0-0 was the winner according to the host.

    Were you specifically told that the grading was based on NFL.com's play by play time and not by a video feed/recording for example?

    I was told exactly that they look at the play by play to determine the winner, thus no video was necessary

    Other sources and/or video would be best to dispute the official NFL.com timestamp.

    Well it is only a few hundred dollars that we are talking about here anyway, but I have only called them once.

    I will call them again in an hour or so and show the new proof that I have that NFL.com made a mistake
