Sports Betting 101: What Is A Push? 🎥

Sports betting is complicated and it can be intimidating as a new bettor. We’re here to help.

A push in sports betting is similar to one in Blackjack — it’s a tie — and all bets are refunded. If a game lands exactly on the spread, then all tickets are voided. So if a team is favored by 5 points and wins by exactly 5, then everyone gets their money back. If a push occurs in a parlay, then that leg is just removed, so a 5-leg parlay becomes a 4-leg parlay.

I remember my first bet, too. Now, it’s time to play.
