Game/Team Props

  1. MLB Propositions will be graded using the results listed at www.MLB.com
  2. All baseball props are listed pitchers unless otherwise specified.
  3. For first to X based props, wagers have action once the event has occurred.
  4. For Props involving statistical totals for a single game, the game must go 9 innings (8.5 if the home team is ahead) to have action. If a game is called or suspended in extra innings, the score will be determined after the last full inning unless the home team scores to tie in the bottom half of the inning in which case the score is determined at the time the game is called.
  5. Unless specified extra innings count towards wagers
  6. On any prop involving more than one game, all games affecting the outcome of the prop must go 9 innings (8.5 if the home team is ahead) to have action. For example, the prop “will any game have exactly 1 total run scored?” would be no action if any game were stopped in the 8th inning.
  7. On player props, that certain player must be in the starting lineup for wagers to have action
  8. On Total Bases Propositions, the listed pitchers and both players must start. A batter is only credited for bases if he hits a single (1), a double (2), a triple (3) or a home run (4). A walk, hit by pitch, error, balk or passed ball do not count. The batter must hit the ball and make it to first base without an error being committed. If he hits a single, for example, and makes it further than first on an error, he is only credited with a single (1 base).
  9. Any MLB proposition using the phrase “innings pitched” will be graded using the box score number. For example, take the case of a visiting starter who pitches five complete innings and then faces three batters in the top of the sixth, but records no outs. This would be graded as 5.0 “innings pitched”. If the home starter pitched five complete innings and did not throw a pitch in the bottom of the sixth, he would also have a grade of 5.0 “innings pitched”. A “pick-em” match-up between these two pitchers for most innings pitched would be graded a tie.
