I'm not a big fan when it comes to betting on baseball but this question has been on my mind. Lets say there is gonna be a 3 game series, Brewers at the Cubs. I bet on the Brewers to win the series. Its 1-1 and the third game is a rainout. I assume I have to WAIT until that game is madeup even if its 6 weeks later?? Is that how it works?

Shows you how much I really know about sports books - I wasn't aware that many casinos took bets on baseball 3-game series.

"The last time I looked," rained-out games were considered pushes, so I would assume a 1-1 split with a rainout would be a push as well. (After all, you have no idea who the pitchers will be for that makeup game. Something like the World Series is different, as they play the makeup games quickly (the delay in 1989 caused by the earthquake notwithstanding).) What I don't know is, what happens if two games are rained out - do they base the bet on the one game, or just call the whole bet off?

(It could be different from one casino to the next - there "may" be a "standard" for this sort of thing, but as far as I know, there's no law requiring it. Under Nevada law, on a "parlay card," each casino establishes its own rules on how to handle ties.)
