Heritage informed me that they had not made a decision yet about futures bets on division winners now that the regular season is cancelled. They said since the situation is unprecedented, they had no rules for it. They plan to make the rules now! I find that quite strange considering I thought books would have rules for everything. William Hill clearly states on their website that the only futures that are cancelled in the event of a shortened season are win totals. I would have assumed division winners would fall in that category but possibly not. Will different books have different rules?. I saw a post a few days ago in this forums that said all but cup bets are cancelled in one sportbook. This could be a very chaotic situation. Does anyone else know what other books are doing or plan to do?

I have a futures parlay with a nice payout(+3700) on FanDuel with Boston and Edmonton in the Cup Final. So far, it’s still listed as an open bet.

Yeah, Divisional Parlays.  Tell me about it.  Got some huge stuff brewing.  Bruins keyed in many.  Then Washington, SL or Colorado, Las Vegas and even couple Edmonton.

Just a follow up. Heritage paid on division winners with the final standings as they are now. Thank you for your posts.

Wait a minute, what are the 4 teams?  Boston, Washington, St. Louis, Las Vegas?  

 

NHL Commisionar and outlets are stated this happened, but not clear to me.  Listened to broadcast.  Waiting on 5Dimes

NHL did not declare division winners, yet many outlets are saying so:

I thought offshore books went by Vegas rules unless specified in Advanced?
