What is a Push?
A push is a tie between two betting results. If a bet results in a push on BettorEdge, bettors on both sides of the bet are returned the amount they risked (stake). Essentially, a bet that ends in a push did not happen.
Examples of a Push
Spread Bet – The Vikings are favored by 4 points (Vikings -4) over the Lions and the Vikings win by exactly 4 points. Any bettor on BettorEdge with the position Vikings -4 or Lions +4 will result in a push, receiving their stake back.
Moneyline Bet – The Vikings and Lions matchup ends in a tie. Any bettor on BettorEdge with the position of Vikings ML or Lions ML will result in a push, receiving their stake back.
Totals Bet – The Vikings and Lions Total is set at 45 and they combine for 45 points. Any bettor on BettorEdge with the position of Over 45 or Under 45 will result in a push, receiving their stake back.
How to avoid a Push
The best way to avoid a push while betting Spreads or Totals on BettorEdge is to create lines that are not whole numbers. By creating a line that includes a half point (0.5, 1.5, 2.5, etc), you will prevent a push from occurring.
There is no way to avoid a potential push bet while betting Moneyline on BettorEdge in sports where ties can occur.
