Before the NFL season began, I placed a bet that the Bears would win more than seven games. On Sunday they got win #8, which puts me over the top. Yesterday however, after I complained that my account had not yet been credited for the winning bet, I was told that "future-type" wagers are not paid out until after the season is over. Does that make any sense? There's no way I can lose this bet, even if the Bears lose all remaining games. Is this just a way for the sportsbook to earn more interest on my money?
