Is it standard practice for a sportsbook/casino to do this?

    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?

    Brian,
    Yes this is common practice the reason being in case for some reason they had to Forfit wins they had in the past then they would possibly have less then 8 wins at seasons end. Ineligable players are what comes to mind first of all, (usually just for college though)but if they played any players who shouldnt be and they get caught they would have to forfit every game those players played in. With the NFL you shouldnt have a worry and you will get payed out at the end of the season, though it sucks to wait [​IMG]
