I would say if book does not stipulate ,"If win or tie" , like most of our guys' if bets, then you would have no action on the second half!
 
#5
CREAM ARE IF LOSE BETS OR IF WIN BETS CONSIDERED (ACTION BETS) MEANING THEY AUTOMATICALLY GO TO THE BOTTOM NO MATTER WHAT THE FIRST GAME DOES.


I GUESS IF WIN HAS THE SAME RULES AS IF LOSE.SO WHAT IS THE RULING ON AN IF WIN BET.I KNOW A LOT OF GUYS PLAY IF WINS BUT ONLY A FEW OF US PLAY IF LOSE.

WHAT IS THE RULE ON AN IF WIN BET IF YOU PUSH THE TOP GAME DOES THE BET CONTINUE TO THE BOTTOM GAME OR JUST END AT A PUSH

Jim,

The bet wasn't made as an if lose/push it was made as an if lose...so I would void your second bet if I were holding your paper.

Clarify before you play bro...

BEANBREATH!!!

NO ACTION...

THE "IF" implies that you need to either WIN or LOSE to continue on with the second part of the wager...

Since that didn't occur, NO ACTION, baby!!!

That's how I'd explain it to him...

Sorry Bean, I don't know any specific rule to help you. I would always stipulate to one or the other! For example, you would have to clarify with me that you do not want an 'if lose or push', that the push part is not working so to speak. Your guy sounds like quite a few guys I know, except for the non-drinking part! I still believe you have 'no action' on the second half but do not know where some books have this in their rules. ( But as you have seen, sometimes even written rules do not get followed). Good luck!

Ok Beaner, I actually did my job .... here ya go...from Pinny

If ?bets" are used by many players as a method of money management. The advantage of playing an if bet is that it reduces your exposure to losses. Like a parlay, an if bet links together 2 or more individual plays and circled games may not be added to the if bet. Unlike a parlay, an if bet is not an all-or-nothing wager: the individual plays remain individual wagers and pay at the listed money line if they win. If bets can be a combination of 2-6 Teams. All selections are made active if the first team wins, ties or cancels, you would then have a straight wager(s) on the remaining teams. Players have an option of choosing the conditions of an if bet: (Win, Win/Tie, Lose, Lose/Tie).

Example:
Raiders -7 wager $110 for $100
If win, tie or cancel
Oilers +6 wager $220 for $200
And
Vikings -6 wager $55 for $50


The initial cost of the wager will be determined by the highest amount the play can lose. In this example the initial cost would be $275 because in the event the first team ties or cancels you would need enough funds to cover the next two wagers.

Let's look at an if bet that contains just two plays. You bet on an initial team or total, if that wager wins then the second wager that you chose will automatically be placed. You should therefore always list the bet you are most confident about first. If your initial bet loses, then the second wager is not placed. The status of the linked bets has nothing to do with the games? starting times or what order they are played, it is strictly a logical relation. Even if the first game in your if bet is played hours after the second one, the status of the second bet must wait for the first game?s results.

The amount of the total wager is collected at the time you place the entire bet sequence.
The amount of all individual wagers that comprise the if bet could be different, they must just be changed once in the final stages of confirming the bet on the bet amount section.

SHRINK YOU MUST KNOW THE RULE ON AN IF WIN BET IF YOU PUSH ON THE TOP HALF OF AN IF WIN BET DOES IT GO TO THE 2ND GAME OR DOES IT END AT A PUSH.DOES ACTION MEAN WIN, LOSE OR PUSH YOU HAVE ACTION.I JUST WANT TO MAKE SURE I A KNOW WHAT I AM ARGUING ABOUT TOMORROW WHEN I TALK TO HIM.THIS SHOULD BE AN EASY QUESTION WHEN YOU PLAY AN IF WIN OFFSHORE AND YOUR TOP GAME PUSHES DOES THE BET END OR GO TO THE 2ND GAME I AM SURE ALL OFFSHORE SPORTSBOOKS HAVE THE SAME RULING ON THIS BET

JIMBO,

I am not a bookie, nor have I ever made an "IF" LOSE bet or an "IF" WIN bet...

Judging from what Pinnacle's rule says, it sounds like IF your first wager WINS or PUSHES, then you do indeed have ACTION on the second bet...

Beanbreath,

No, I actually don't know every rule involved with sports betting. But, I do know that some books have DIFFERENT rules than others and it's important to do your own homework on this BEFORE HAND...

Locals have their own set of rules too that are not always consistent with Vegas or Offshore..

I'd still try presenting some of the arguments you have heard here from other posters and myself who are trying to HELP you dingbat!
