Sports betting is not entirely fair

Recommended Posts

hello my friends today found something that is enough to upset me in sports betting, which is something that I think is cheating.
so I was playing in sports betting, precisely in basketball and then playing under-under, then the score in the match showed the number 44-40 was in the last minute of the match. and I keep waiting for the game to end because I will win if the score can last until the fight is over. but what surprised me at the end of the match was that the score changed and showed a number that made me unbelievable at 45-52
this was unexpected, the display on the web was deceiving everyone who placed a bet.
I was quite annoyed and asked if the dealer did that on purpose to get a profit

how about you guys, have you ever experienced this

can you mention what game you placed a bet on ? because it rare to know that a sports gambling website changes the result while people can check the score every where in the web ! they wont do such a move in purpose be ause it will affect the fairness of the site ! i really wish to see the markets :)

I really don't think so if sports is scam mate about the scores because you can search it every where I think you just miss where team did you 
bet.  Can you share you bet ID if you play on stake or Share what both team did you bet. It's really insane mate. You can report it!

No it can't be done in sports because as everyone said above that sport game results can be seen everywhere on web.

So if a bookie would do this than no one will bet with them next time.

And they don't have to do it because they always have edge and overall the results are in their favor.

There is no "dealer" in sports..I don't get this post. But even with that, until it's final, the score can change, although it's confusing as to which sport you would even be referring to.

Dealer = arbiter (or the sportsbook) I supposed.

In some sports, I am not quite sure tho, there is this what they call handicap and point spread. This is when the sportsbooks  add point to the underdog team to make the game fair (in terms of the ability etc.) Obviously,these points aren’t included in the actual score to determine who wins or loses the game, but they are calculated in to determine who “wins” the game in the sportsbook’s eyes. 

For example: 

 

When we were young, we use to play with adults. Say basketball and its you vs your daddy, given that our opponent is bigger than us he will handicap. Its either he will give you +points or he will just only one hand to play with you.

PS: Sorry I'm not good in explaining.

I'm not sure about that..they will not do that since most of the bettors are watching live  and in sports you cannot really predict what will be the real scores in the end whatever  game is it.

thats true, many players can watch live games, and even if they dont, they still can check the score later , well sports betting is really fair and they can not predict what will you bet on ! so can change nothing, and they can do nothing except for praying to win big :D

by that I mean they didn't change the numbers, but in the last betting market the numbers showed 40-44 at the last minute before the market closed. when the game runs in the final minutes the score still doesn't change much but when the game is over the score changes and in the actual match the score is the same.
this means that the score in the game update is very slow and can make many people lose if the update is not live
