Football official game times

Bets on the full game are considered official after 55 minutes of play. If a game is canceled before 55 minutes, straight bets are treated as no action, and parlays & teasers will be reduced accordingly.

Bets on 1st halves, 2nd halves and all quarters will have action upon full completion of the period in question. Example: if you bet on the 4th quarter and the game is suspended with one minute remaining in the quarter, the bet will have no action.

Bets on spreads, moneylines and totals for the full game and 2nd halves always include overtime scoring. Bets for 4th quarter don't include overtime scoring.

Any market whose outcome has already been determined will have action, even if the game is suspended after that point.

For detailed rules about games that are delayed, suspended, or postponed please see the article on Suspended / postponed football games.
