What is regulation time?
In sports, it is the normal prescribed duration of a game fight, event or match.
- For Football and Basketball, our most frequently bet sports, overtime scores count toward spread, total and moneyline bets, as well as second-half bets.
- In Soccer, especially for three-way betting (including the result of a “draw,”), bets get graded on regulation time only.
- In Hockey, if a game gets decided via shootout, it only counts toward spread total and puck line bets.
