  2. Definitions
    1. Point Spread: point(s) either added to or subtracted from the actual game score for wagering purposes.
    2. Money Line: odds that calculate the amount a wager will pay based on $100 increments. Negative money lines show the amount to wager to win $100. Positive money lines show the amount paid for every $100 wagered.
    3. Total (over/under): a wager over or under the total points scored in a game. Calculated by adding both teams
      final scores together.
    4. Straight Wager: a wager made on a single team, total or proposition.
    5. Parlay Wager: a wager coupling two or more teams, totals or propositions.
    6. Teaser Wager: a wager coupling two or more teams, totals or propositions that allow the patron to modify the point spread or total by an established value.
    7. Off the Board: wagers using bet index (bi) numbers and odds posted on odds boards and sheets.
    8. Push: a wager, that when the point spread is applied, results in a tie score.
    9. Official: a wagering event is considered authorized for a result to be determined. If an event is unable to be deemed official for wagering as defined in the rules, wagers will be refunded.
    10. No Action: a wager that is disregarded due to a push or other event defined in the rules.
    11. Canceled Wager: a wager that is canceled due to an obvious error, prohibited participants or prohibited activities.
    12. Obvious Error: errors made that are obvious in nature to include, but not limited to, misspelling or typos of names, places, times or dates.
    13. In Game: in game wagers are placed after the start of a game or other defined period and are determined by the final score of the period specified regardless of when the wager is placed.
    14. Asian Handicap: the Asian handicap is a form of betting on soccer in which teams are handicapped according to their form, so that a stronger team must win by more goals for an individual betting on them to win. Example:“team a” is -½ & -1, while “team b” is +½ & +1. If you are placing a wager on “team a” in an Asian handicap, you are placing half of your wager on “team a” at –½ and half on “team a” at -1. If they win
      by exactly one, you would win your –½ half wager and push on your -1-half wager. If you placed the wager on “team b” and they lost by 1, you would push on the +1 and lose the +½.The Asian handicap can be expressed as either two numbers split (-½ & -1) or as a quarter number. In the above example it would be “team a” -.75

      The following is the two display versions of the Asian handicap:

      -.25 = (pick & -½)
      -.25 = (pick & -½)
      +25 = (+½ & pick)
      -.75 = (-½ & -1)
      +.75 = (+½ & +1)
      -1.25 = (-1 & -1 ½)
      +1.25 = (+1 & +1 ½)

      Any time that there is a quarter number or two numbers, the wager is split.
