Depending on the sport, your bet might be counted as action based on how much of the game has been played.

A baseball game becomes official for money line wagering purposes after 4 1/2 innings if home team is winning, or 5 innings if visiting team is winning. Totals and Run lines will have No Action.

For run lines and game totals (over/under), a baseball game becomes official after 8 1/2 innings if home team is winning, or 9 innings if visiting team is winning.

The no contest ruling and subsequent explanation should answer any questions some bettors may have.

All bets except the 1st 5 Innings odds were no-actioned.

The Run Line (Spread) and Totals were no-actioned because the game did not go at least 8.5 innings. Rule:

“For all Regular Season Runline (spread) and Total (over/under) wagers to have action, the game must go 9 innings or 8½ if the home team is winning, listed pitchers must also start to have action.”

For the Money Line, since the game was tied and postponed until a future date, the bets were also no-actioned. Rule:

“Regular Season Games must be played on scheduled date and site. If a game is rescheduled all bets are cancelled.”

Other Sports

The typical sportsbook rules are that, if a betting event fails to take place as scheduled, for any reason, or if it ends without an official score and is not resumed within 72 hours, the stakes will be refunded or credited to your account.

The Week 4 2016 Broncos vs. Bucs game in Tampa Bay was delayed due to severe weather with Denver way up.  Many gamblers wondered what would happen if this game were to be cancelled.  Most sportsbooks require that games must go at least 55 minutes of play for totals bets on the game to have 'action' regardless of whether the score was already OVER at the time of the cancellation. 

Games must go at least 55 minutes of play for bets on the game to have 'action'.  Each quarter is considered 15 minutes.

Postponement of Basketball, Football and Hockey games are less common than with Major League Baseball but they do happen as was evidenced with the Duke-NC game.
