What's a run line bet? Run line, an American term for handicap commonly used in baseball or American football, is a value applied to either team at the end of a specified period. You have to predict which team will win once the 'run line' has been applied to the event. Any bets ending in a tie once the run line has been applied will be classed as a push and your stake voided. In the case of a 3-way run line, a tie has been factored into the market offering and would be settled as such. For example: Event Selection Actual result Result after run line applied New York Yankees @ Houston Astros New York Yankees +1.5 New York Yankees 4-5 Houston Astros New York Yankees 5.5-5 Houston Astros(Bet wins) New York Yankees @ Houston Astros NY Yankees -1.5 New York Yankees 4-4 Houston Astros New York Yankees 2.5-4 Houston Astros(Bet loses) New York Yankees @ Houston Astros Houston Astros -2.0 New York Yankees 2-4 Houston Astros New York Yankees 2-2 Houston Astros(Bet void) For more information, please see our sports rules here.
