All odds must come directly from Bovada! If you don't use Bovada odds, your bet will be revert to Bovada with no refund.
Minimum bet allowed is 0.25!
Any posted bet is autoconfirmed once you send your MHC to JordanF0705 OR Tgara (whoever the poster of the thread is) If MHC is not sent BEFORE your game starts, your bet will be graded as a loser.
If your MHC is Frozen after you place your bet, then you immediately forfeit your bet! No debating this!
You MUST include the sport of the team you are betting. If this is NOT included, your bet will be graded as a loser. No exceptions here! It’s not that hard to type NCAAB, NCAAF, NBA, NHL, etc... just do it guys!
When you send your MHC to me, PLEASE add a note for the bet(s) that it is for. It helps me keep up with what you have (or haven't) sent.
Your bet will use odds that are on Bovada when your MHC was sent. (I will use MHC timestamps to verify this)
Your bet will also be graded using Bovada grading. If Bovada grades your bet as a loser, then it's a loser. No debating this.
NO IOU bets, you must send MHC for wager to count. No betting winnings from a previous bet that hasn’t been paid yet.
Don’t manipulate lines. If you place a bet with a typo or wrong line, quote your post with the correct line.
Do NOT edit your post. If you do, it’ll be graded as a loser.
You can bet the moneyline OR spread for any game. But you can NOT bet both on the same game.
Odds will be capped at -700 (-695, -690, -685, etc)
Max winnings in one day for one person is 50 MHC.
Once a bet is placed, don’t try to change it if the line or odds moves in your favor. Your original post is your bet (assuming there is no typo or line manipulation – see rule #2).
You can’t bet the moneyline for a pick’em game. If you bet the ML of a pick’em BEFORE the pick’em was released, your bet will be refunded. If you bet the ML of a pick’em AFTER the pick’em was released, your bet will revert to the spread (and odds) for the team that you picked. This includes betting the 1st half or 2nd half ML as well.
I will accept 2H odds for 10 minutes past when the odds were released. EX: 2H odds for UNC vs Duke released at 8:33pm, I will accept 2H bets until 8:43pm. Bets after 8:43 will be returned, if you are building a habit of posting late, your bet may be forfeited.
If I place a bet on a team in your bethouse (or a bethouse that you are associated with), you can not bet on that same team (full game, halves, teaser, parlays, etc) against me. This includes if i bet a team on a parlay or teaser as well.
If you do not accept a bet at your bethouse, you can’t bet it against me.
You may not place correlated bets! If you do, they will both refunded. If you do this twice, they will both be counted as a loss!
For Major League Baseball, if you are betting on a game and a pitching change is made prior to the start the only way you will receive a refund is if you list the name of the starting pitchers in your bet. If you do not do this, and there is a pitching change, you will not be refunded.
All bets MUST have the following information...
Line (UNC -4)
I will be checking odds for the time you posted your bet. If your odds are wrong, they will be corrected, and you will be paid accordingly. Please don't make this a habit. I understand some lines change quickly, but more than 5 minutes and you get the correct line.
I reserved the right to change your line at any given time if I find that you have posted an incorrect line.
*BANNED SPORTS LIST*
NO INTERNATIONAL SPORTS ACCEPTED UNLESS IT'S TENNIS OR SOCCER (MUST BE ONE OF THE FOUR LEAGUES LISTED ABOVE FOR SOCCER!)
If you have a sport you want to bet that's international - ask me via PM and I will consider it!
ANY QUESTIONS ON WHETHER I ACCEPT THE BET OR NOT PLEASE ASK BEFORE PLACING BET
If your bet is NOT the same day as the thread you post in, please specify the date and time of the event you are betting!
Please have your bet placed 5 minutes before the official start time of the game. If you are consistently posting bets 1-2 minutes before the game starts, you will receive a warning. If it becomes a habit, you will forfeit your bet.
All bets are final (Duh!)
However, I reserve the right to push any bet before the game starts.
You can’t bet two different outcomes - seems pretty obvious - but apparently some people don’t understand that.
If your payout is missed, please PM me before going off in the forums, it was an honest mistake.
Please do not quote your bet with "winner"! If your bet wins, I promise you that I know. I will pay it out as soon as I can. I have a full time job and sometimes get busy. Please be patient and give me a reasonable time frame to pay your bet before posting.
I reserve the rights to alter the rules at any date
If you hit a parlay for 30 MHC, that counts as your max for the day! You can’t bet anymore after that for that day. (If you do have a bet that hits after a 30 MHC parlay hits, you will be refunded accordingly)
If you bet a ML and it becomes a pick ‘em, it will be treated as a push on your parlay.
You can only parlay OR tease a team/total TWICE. You can't pick a team and parlay or tease them 8 times and rotate teams with them. If you do this, your first time will be a warning and refunded. The second time and going forward will be counted as a loss for ALL games AFTER your first two.This means if you parlay a team, and tease a team, that counts as two times. Simply put -- No parlaying and/or teasing the same team more than twice.
Must have at least 1 bet of -135 or less juice on ALL parlays (-130, -125, etc)
Max winnings for 2 teamers: 10 MHC. 3 teamers: 15 MHC. 4+ teams max is 30 mhc
Follow the rules above. Pretty simple.
Prop Bet rules
Max winning of 5 MHC per prop bet
Once a prop bet is placed, that prop bet is locked.
Prop bets are not auto-confirmed. I must confirm a prop bet before it is in play.
I refuse the right to decline any prop bet.
If you bet props on a parlay, the max winnings is 5 mhc per parlay.
Max juice of -180 on any prop is allowed (i.e. -175, -170, -165)
MLB Team Totals are considered prop bets!
3 way ML bets for NHL are considered a prop bet! You can not bet a 3 way ML and a ML. You have to choose one or the other.
This is NOT a parlay only rule. This is means if you bet a 3 way ML on a parlay, you can not bet a ML on a straight bet or vice versa.
This also means you can not parlay a 3 way ML and then parlay a ML. Didn’t realize this was so hard to understand. But here we are.
Live Betting Rules
Something new that we’re trying out here on Tobacco Road. These must come directly from Bovada.
These bets are NOT auto-confirmed. I must confirm every live bet. I reserve the right to deny any live bet.
Live bets are only accepted via Slack PM (if you don’t have slack, hit up the Dolphouse to join!).
A screenshot of your live bet is required.
All rules above still apply to live bets (max win (depending on sport), max odds, can’t bet two sides of the same game and you can’t bet both the ML/Spread either, etc).
There are special hours for live bets and are not accepted 24/7 (again, see the Dolphouse Slack if you have any questions on when the live betting window is open!).
This promo is designed to reward those who bet with us weekly!
If you bet more than 50 MHC with us weekly, then you will receive 5% of your losses back. If you bet more than 100 MHC with us weekly, then you will receive 10% of your losses back. You will not receive any MHC back if you do not lose. So if you risk 100 MHC with us and lose 0, then there’s obviously nothing to return. Because 10% of 0 is, well... 0!
This will be a promo where you get your losses back on a weekly basis (every Monday morning!). Our week runs Monday morning through Sunday night and then starts over.
If you have any questions regarding this promotion (or suggestions to make it better), please let me know! This is a work in progress and there could be changes made at any time!
Starting on every Monday we will have “Free Bet Monday” here at Tobacco Road! If you place a wager with us, and that wager loses, you will receive a free bet balance of whatever amount you risked for another wager (limited to one wager - can’t be spread across multiple wagers) (Max winning of 5 MHC can be won off free credit). You can use this free bet ONCE weekly. You will not get the MHC back if you bet loses, rather you will just be allowed to place another bet.
Red Sox -1.5 (-110 Bovada)
Bet 5.5 to win 5 return 10.5
Red Sox win 4-3 but don’t cover the spread. You don’t get the 5.5 MHC back, but you will be allowed to place another wager for the 5.5 MHC amount (as long as the winnings do not exceed 5 MHC)! The game/match you are betting on MUST be on Monday AND if that wager loses then the next bet must also be on the same Monday! Does this all make sense? Basically, you have to lose two bets in a row to actually lose your MHC!
If you place several bets throughout the day but don’t lose a bet, well... you don’t need the free bet because you win anyway!
This is subject to change at any moment! If you have any suggestions, please let me know
