    It was alot more than 72 to 1. It was 750 to 1 if am not mistaken.


    True odds should have been like 7.5 to 1 probably

    Yeah, I was thinking $500 plus great seats to three NFL games would be a great win for a blatantly bad line on an original $100 ticket.

    I’ll bet what he ultimately gets, if anything, won’t be that good.

    they dont just get to make any rules they want when they are regulated though. i think in nevada they have to honor bad lines. maybe its different if the bet is placed with a computer instead of a person though.

    Hitting a bad line...

    $500 bones + 3 games in a skybox vs. Some midget named tony calling you a piece of shit and pocketing your funds.

    Don't know which one I'd rather take... But hey he had to "full juice!!!"

    Please define what an "obvious" error is.

    That's the problem. No one ever walks away from a betting window thinking their ticket is a mistake — until this happens.

    If someone needs to yell you 750/1 on a two-point game is an obvious error...

    Consumer protections on their way.

    Bottom line, by all accounts, the book should pay.

    The poison of not honoring bets because of a "bad line" has spilled over from the internet world and all those internet players over the years are likely to accept it.

    If a brick and mortar book took the bet, I side with Nevada laws and force it to be honored.

    I'm conflicted though, because this live action blends the online rules with traditional rules.

    It seems Jersey wants to be a real book, but still benefit from the online precedent that has been set about glitches and mistakes.

    I'm really conflicted here. Obviously, the world is changing and this technology that has been bringing lines online for years is entering and being used in shops and books.

    I just don't know, the future is clearly going to allow the book to make errors, but I'm not sure I agree with it.

    They should pay the guy what they booked and then refuse to serve him again for "shot taking."

    Basically give him the option to get paid but never play there again.

    Does New Jersey have laws here or did they just get way ahead of themselves?

    If a decision here isn't clear cut from laws on the Jersey books, then Jersey, despite all they've done, are just a bunch of hacks who have gotten ahead of themselves.

    The books will win here, and reserve the right to not honor bets. Online, this was acceptable because the community in general could police decisions and determine what is "obviously a bad line."

    Back in the day, in Vegas and Nevada, there was no such thing as a "bad line", not the way the use the words today, but there were shot takers, some of whom were trespassed in many places.

    HUH? Does Las Vegas not have the same "obvious line error" clause written in its rules like online does? I know what you are saying used to be true, but I thought Vegas got in step with offshore by adding the "bad line" clause in a few years ago? ESPECIALLY books that accept in-play wagering?

    Yeah, that was in the next sentence...

    Live action is an issue, but when I've bet live in Nevada, it's posted that all live line bets are FINAL. Period.

    I'm sure it has happened and bets were probably refunded, but I've never heard of this happening at any of the books. If it's a Will Hill line, it's bad all over the place and the Casino themselves aren't even a part of it.

    It's all Will Hill at that point. I'm sure it's happened, but I've never seen or heard of it.

    Maybe DraftKings should get their shit together or start supervising bets, one at a time as they get approved.

    You want to be a big boy DK? You want to play with the big boys? Then cut out the bad ticks and "glitches."

    There is no other way.

    If you have a bad line, announce and post that it's cancelled before the game ends.

    Of course, in the example in this thread, that would have been impossible.

    Online, bets should be cancelled before the game ends and books should have programs that show bad lines being bet and on their ledger live and real time.

    Either protect the consumer, or not. The US will try to protect the consumer, to an extent.
