Before you bet on any sport, make sure to know how NY betting sites handle cancelations, player injuries and roster changes. Understanding how the sportsbook handles these types of events will help you place more accurate bets and avoid any headaches down the road.

Official Betting

The Director may promulgate rules allowing permit holders to offset loss and manage risk by using a liquidity pool in Virginia or another jurisdiction so long as such pool is approved by the Department and the permit holder is licensed by such jurisdiction to operate a sports betting business. Any such activity shall not reduce a permit holder’s obligation to pay bettors under this section.

Unless otherwise specified, the game must be played for 9 innings (8.5 if the home team is ahead) for wagers on Over/Under totals and Run Lines to have action. For Player Props, the player must be in the starting lineup for wagers to have action.

Official League Data

“Official league data” means statistics, results, outcomes and other data relating to professional sports events obtained by a permit holder under an agreement with a sports governing body for the purpose of determining the result of tier 2 bets. The term “sports governing body” includes the highest level league of play for professional baseball, basketball, football, hockey and soccer teams as well as outdoor motor sports facilities that host National Association for Stock Car Auto Racing (NASCAR) national touring races.
