Mavericks star Luka Doncic exited in the first quarter of the Mavericks' 99-95 win over the Phoenix Suns on Thursday and now gamblers are demanding that all prop bets at FanDuel featuring Luka be voided.

FanDuel has instead opted to void a bunch of props featuring Antonio Davis.  He scored 21 points while coming off the bench in is Lakers return.

FanDuel notified customers of its decision to void Davis props while not choosing to do so for the Luka bets.

"We'll be refunding the following online wagers in free bets: 

"Losing straight prop bets on Antonio Davis.

"Parlays, SGPs, SGP+, and boost where a Davis prop bet was the only losing leg.

"Refunds to be issued over the next 24 hours."

Customers like a_yoo_rell revolted.

"@FDSportsbook @FanDuel_Support y’all serious AD had 1 point 3 rebounds and 1 assist and played 8mins and y’all did this no problem. Weird how y’all picking and choosing Luka played 3 mins no points or assist A lot of people most likely had winning tickets so y’all not refunding"

"probably way less money for them to lose with AD vs Luka," Brian Clark suggested.

Guti tweeted:

"God forbid either one gets injured because FanDuel won’t be able to explain if they’ll refund or not. They can’t even explain the qualifications of refunding a Bad Beat refund AD = 8 minutes played Luka = 3 minutes played Do you have to play for the Lakers?"

Plenty of customers were in agreement it seems.

Customers ultimately decided they were mad as hell and not going to take the abuse any more.

A petition was filed at Change.org demanding FanDuel do the right thing and void Luka bets.

At 500 signatures, this petition is more likely to be featured in recommendations!  As of Friday night, it was halfway there.

The petition read as follows:

"This a petition to show the mighty overlords at fanduel that we the people do in fact have power. 

"Thursday January 26th 2023, Mavericks star Luka Doncic was injured less than 3 minutes into the game. Fan Duel has a history of voiding bets (example Devin Booker (12/26/22) and Anthony Davis (12/6/22)) 

"Fan Duels biggest competitor DraftKings has already stated publicly they are voiding all Luka legs of parlays or player prop bets straight.

"Fanduel believes we are addicts who will stay with them no matter what.  This how we show them we have the power.  If they wanna show inconsistent and shady  practices then we will no longer give them our business."
