Sports Prediction Rules

GENERAL RULES

  1. Customer cannot cancel picks once they are submitted.
  2. For over/under picks, game overtime is included in the final score (unless otherwise specified).
  3. For half-time line picks, overtime is included as a part of the second half.
  4. All minimums, maximums, and payout odds are subject to change without prior written notice.
  5. Regarding suspended games, protest games, or overturned decisions, Fliff follows Las Vegas gaming rules for picking purposes. Otherwise, Fliff does not recognize suspended games, protests and overturned decisions for prediction purposes.
  6. All sporting events must be played on the scheduled date, unless otherwise specified. If an event is postponed and/or rescheduled or there’s a change of venue, the event will automatically constitute ‘no action’, which means all virtual funds for that event will be refunded (unless sport-specific rules state otherwise). All parlays will be recalculated excluding that selection of the parlay (e.g. a 3-team parlay becomes a 2-team parlay). Individual tennis matches have no action if the match is not fully completed due to withdrawal/incapacity or disqualification.  Note – This rule does not apply to single game parlays (see General Rule #20).
  7. All payouts are calculated on the odds in effect at the time of submitting the pick.
  8. In the case of an obvious error on the posted line, scheduled time, or maximum Risk amount, any picks will be deemed ‘no action’, and all virtual funds will be credited accordingly.
  9. In the event of a settlement error or in-game score or stat correction, all picks will be corrected to the proper outcome. These corrections may result in a change to customer virtual funds balances.
  10. Dates and kick-off time of events shown are for guidance purposes only. Picks will be accepted up to the advertised kick-off time. For any reason a pick is inadvertently accepted after an event or match has started, the selection(s) affected will be made void.
  11. Game scores and times of in-play events are shown for display purposes only. We do not guarantee their accuracy and recommend checking with other sources instead of using them to inform decisions on placing picks. Picks will not be voided or refunded due to discrepancies in the score display.
  12. All futures picks are accepted as All In, Run or Not Run, Entered or Not Entered. Stakes are lost on a future pick if a selection does not take part. In the event of a tie where 3 or more competitors are offered in one prediction option, the payout will be divided by the number of players/competitors tied.
  13. Winners and losers are official after:
    Soccer – 90 minutes of play – Overtime and/or Penalty shots are not included
    Football – NCAA & NFL – 55 minutes of play
    Basketball – NBA – 43 minutes of play
    Basketball – NCAA – 35 minutes of play
    Hockey – NHL – 55 minutes of play
    All other sporting events – 55 minutes of play
  14. Overtime, quarters or extra innings are counted in the final score when making predictions on totals, moneyline and point spread unless otherwise specified, and with the exception of soccer lines including a price for a draw.
  15. On half time picks, overtime is included as part of the second half.
  16. All period and quarter picks placed are for that specific period or quarter only. All overtime picks placed will be for the full overtime, regardless of how many overtimes.
  17. Other sports: All other contests that involve a scheduled length of play time or time limit must be played to their conclusion or have five minutes or less of scheduled playing time remaining when the contest concludes to be considered official for sports prediction purposes.
  18. Straight pick is a single selection on a single event that carries a point spread, a total or a money line (or other market sides).
  19. Parlay pick is a single prediction that links together two or more selections and is dependent on all of those selections winning together. In the event that one of these selections is a PUSH or NO ACTION, the Parlay will be settled at reduced odds based on the outcomes of the other selections (e.g. a 3-selection parlay becomes a 2-selection parlay).
  20. Single Game Parlay is combination of selections within the same event. In the event that one of these selections is a PUSH or NO ACTION, the entire Single Game Parlay will result in a PUSH, regardless of whether the other selections win or lose.

a. General Rules

  • In the event of any of the following circumstances all picks will stand:
    – A change of schedule and/or day of match
    – A change of venue
    – A change from indoor court to outdoor court or vice versa
    – A change of surface (either before or during a match)
  • In the event of a match starting but not being completed then all picks will be void.

b. Total Games and Point Spread Markets Rules (Prematch & In-Play)

  • These general rules apply to Games in Individual Sets, Games in Match, Player Games, and Point Spread (based on games won). In the event of forfeited points/games, these will count for final settlement.
  • For the purposes of all such markets a tie-break or Match tie-break is counted as one game.
  • In the event of retirement, disqualification or change of surface mid-match, picks will be void unless there is no conceivable way the set and/or match could be played to its natural conclusion without unconditionally determining the result of that market.
  • In the event of a match being delayed or suspended due to weather, darkness, or otherwise, the match will be settled after the resumption of play and upon the conclusion.
  • E.g. (1) A set is abandoned at 4-4: picks on Over/Under 9.5 games or fewer in the set are settled as winners/losers respectively, since any natural conclusion to the set would have at least 10 games; picks on Over/Under 10.5 games or more are void.
  • E.g. (2) A best-of-3 sets match is abandoned at 6-4 2-6: picks on Over/Under 23.5 games or fewer in match will be settled as winners/losers respectively, since any natural conclusion to the match would have at least 24 games; picks on Over/Under 24.5 games or more are void.
  • E.g. (3) A best-of-3 sets match is abandoned at 6-4 4-6 5-5: picks on either player with a handicap of +2.5 or more will be settled as winners, picks on either player with a handicap of -2.5 or less will be settled as losers, and picks on the tie with a handicap of +/- 3 or more will be settled as losers. All picks on handicaps ranging from -2 to +2 will be void.
  • The Handicap, Total Games In Match and Player Games markets are based on a statutory number of sets. In the event of the statutory number of sets being changed or differing from those offered for event prediction purposes then all picks are void.
  • At the end of the match all of the games each individual player wins are totaled and the handicap applied to determine the handicap winner.

c. Number of Sets Rules (Prematch & In-Play)

  • Picks are void if the statutory number of sets are changed.
  • Number of Sets Over/Under – In the event of a disqualification or retirement all picks will be void unless settlement of the pick has already been determined.
