Wow that really is some bullshit. No way the first period -0.5 line should be -200. It would be +170. The +0.5 sounds right at -200. Hope they fix it for you.

RIDICULOUS , AND I GUARANTEE IF I LOST THE WAGER THEY WOULD OF COLLECTED MY 100 AND I WOULDN'T HAVE HEARD A PEEP OUT OF THEM , BUT BECAUSE I WON, APPARENTLY THE LINE WAS WRONG ?

I DONT UNDERSTAND HOW YOU CAN PUT OUT A LINE , THEN ACCEPT THE WAGER ON THAT LINE AND PRICE , THEN WHEN IT WINS.

IF THEY WERE A REAL BOOKIE, THEY WOULD BE LAYING IN A DITCH SOMEWHERE FOR PULLING THIS garbage

Hey pdouble,

What I found out is exactlt what you have been told. They put a line up in error and as far as I know when  any book does this the bet is void and the bet amount is returned to the customers account. This sucks and I am with you but I have seen this many times and its the same story.

Yes I see this a fair bit ,not at Sports Interaction but overall. I think it should be like if they price a item wrong at the grocery store . You get it for the price that's on it. There mistake their loss.

A few years back the Government lotto put a line out on a soccer game that had already been played somewhere in Europe. The boys parlayed the darn out of it and they made a fortune. Now it states clearly if they put out a bad line the game involved is void.

That's the thing Lou, the +0.5 (-200) was NOT a mistake. -0.5 at -200 would be a mistake.

The Penguins were roughly -130 favorites in that game. Here is an example of a first period line for tonight...

Pittsburgh Penguins at Ottawa Senators
 61 Pittsburgh Penguins -½ +170-120 o1½ +110     
 62 Ottawa Senators +½ -200 +100 u1½ -130 

Not sure if this is going to properly format, but tonight the Penguins are -130 on the ML, and the first period -0.5 is +170, +0.5 is -200. Very similar to what pdouble's bet should have been,

Read any sportsbooks rules and you will see that a sportsbook has the right to cancel any wagers placed on a bad line. This was clearly a bad line. With Montreal winning 1-0 they should NOT have been still receiving +0.5. If they were the juce should have been a lot higher than -200 when you factor in that they were already leading 1-0 and the opposition would have had to score 2 goals to cover there -0.5.

Put it this way, would you even contemplate laying -0.5 and receiving only +170 on the team who was losing 0-1? No you wouldn't so it is clearly a bad line and all sports books have the right to void wagers placed on bad lines.

How do people not know this by now?

Are you freaking serious?. You do know that the line for tonights game is based on the game starting 0-0. You are aware that lines change when a goal has been scored? The Senators are getting +0.5 -200 with the score 0-0. Montreal were getting that price after leading 1-0.

It was an OBVIOUS mistake. They were winning 1-0 and still getting +0.5 and only laying -200. You obviously know very little about live betting. 

To lose the other team would have had to score 2 goals to win the game. Would you have taken +170 about Pittsburgh scoring 2 goals to win the game? No you wouldn't.

I cannot believe that you still think the line was not a mistake. Not to mention that using tonights lines based on a 0-0 score and comparing them to a 1-0 score is just plain friggin moronic!

I was under the impression this bet was made when the score was still 0-0. IF the bet was made AFTER the Canadians goal, then I withdraw anything I said prior and I simply misunderstood. If the bet was made at 1-0, then obviously the line was wrong.

My apologies.

One more time for the dummies. According to 5Dimes, Pittsburgh are -130 to win tonights game in Ottawa. Receiving +0.5 for regulation time they are +0.5 - 215. Please bear in mind that these odds are before the puck drops and with the score 0-0.

Now do a little math if you can. If Pittsburgh are leading 1-0 after one period then do you truly believe that you would still receive the same price at +0.5? No you would not. With them leading 1-0 the +0.5 should go to close to -350.

Tonight Ottawa are basically the same price as Montreal were against Pitt and are +1.5 -275 for the game. That is at the start of the game. The line that SIA wrongly put out with MTL leading 1-0 had them at basically +1.5 -200 if you added the half goal handicap to the score. Not to mention that there was already a period finished leaving Pitt only 2 periods to cover the handicap and not 3. If Ottawa are +1.5 and -275 at the start of the game then you can bet that they will be +1.5 -350 ( at least ) if they are tied 0-0 after 1 period.

Do you now understand that the line was a clear and obvious MISTAKE? Please say you do.

Dude I already told you I did not know the bet was made AFTER the Canadians goal. Obviously after the goal the +0.5 should be closer to -700 or higher, not -200. Trust me, I follow live betting more then anyone.

No probs. I thought you must have missed something. With the score 1-0 and it being a 1st period bet only then Pitt had less than 20 mins ( obviously ) to score 2 goals.

My apologies if I sounded a little harsh. I just don't like people bashing books when they don't have a clue. This guy knew he was taking a bad line and bitched when he got caught. I have no problem with people trying to take advantage of bad lines but please have the decency not to complain when you get caught trying to rip someone off.

And for the record, leading 1-0 in the first, the +0.5 would be FAR higher than -350, but none of that really matters.

Yea I gotcha. Trust me, I would have sounded just as harsh as you (if not more) if someone was trying to understand how it's a bad line at 1-0.

for the record i am not trying to rip anybody off, i just assume that when i see a line up, and place a bet which is accepted, in the end if i win i am actually going to get paid.

also for the record i stressed over that bet , because as anyone who watched the game knows , pitsburgh had about 6 scoring chances in the 1st period , hit 2 posts , and probably should have scored 2 goals. if pit does pot 2 goals and i lose that wager,am i getting it voided ???  doubtful

I'm shocked they even took the bet for $100 to win $50. Win a few of those bets and your limits will be cut down to next to nothing. SIA is a dogshit operation. They don't want winners. If you're a square, you can bet all day long with them.

Wait, is the bet that got cancelled a 1st period only bet pdouble? And was it placed before the puck dropped for the game? That's certainly what it looks like from his ticket in the first post.

"SO ON SATURDAY U PLACED A 1ST PERIOD SPREAD WAGER ON MONTREAL AGAINST PITSBURGH, WELL OFCOURSE MONTREAL SCORED AND IT WAS 1-0 AT THE END OF THE 1ST. THEN WHEN I WENT TO MY ACCOUNT TO PLACE ANOTHER WAGER, CURIOUSLY THE 1ST PERIOD AGER WAS GRADED VOID, AFTER SEVERAL EMAILS AND CALLS THIS IS THE CLEAREST EXPLANATION I GOT !!!!! BEWARE OF THIS SCAM SITE BEWARE OF SPORTS INTERACTION !!!"

Sounds to me like he bet on +0.5 at -200 before the puck dropped, not after the first goal was scored?
