I didn't want to post this initially, but I guess there's no harm in it. Been a while anyway.

I chose not to play it, until they "fixed" the price. Still got a great number. And lost. Was this the right move?

If I had max bet both sides right away, would they have paid?

Were you afraid if you bet both sides they might lock your account?

Yes. And perhaps booted me altogether. And not paid.

I can't comment about online but I have seen two overbook scenarios. In the first, a six horse race, I just bet the favourite (and lost) and in the second I just watched.

btw Is Zero odd or even!! That could be construed as a third option for the Odd/Even bet.

I did think about that. However, this was a playoff game, so they were playing till someone scored.

I'd like to think they would have paid. Mistakes like this are why there are caps on wagers.

It depends on the integrity of the casino... and the gambling laws in your area. Once a bet is placed, do they have anything in their T's and C's after it's been accepted that they can revoke it for any reason? Usually once you have a bet, at least with chips/etc it's a contract bet until it's resolved. This would be a great question for Bob N! You should post it in the other thread, or I can for you if you'd like. I'm curious if in NV they could pull your bet. Since it's in NV and governed by their gaming rules I'd think placing a bet on the MGM app is the EXACT SAME as betting it in their sports book. After its placed and you have your ticket/receipt, they have to honor it.

Generally when a sportsbook puts up a bad line they will eventually notice and cancel the bets.

Like a real physical sports book you can walk in to? I didn't think they were allowed to "cancel" bets after they were made. Are you saying cancel the bets for any future bets?

I'm talking about offshore sportsbooks. They all have something in TOS stating that if a bad line was put up they have the right to cancel the wagers. Some will adjust the odds to the "proper" market price and keep your action alive. Also some books will ban you if they think you are taking shots at bad lines.
