Despite the league’s notion to move forward amidst the Coronavirus pandemic, the question still remains: “What happens to my Futures bets? With action available on sites like DraftKings Sportsbook, FanDuel Sportsbook, BetMGM and FOXBet, how would those bets be impacted if the season schedule has to change?
Over at The Action Network, Danny Donahue spoke with several representatives at various books to get an indication of how Futures bets would be handled in the event of an updated or changed schedule.
NFL Win Totals
Most of the sites require 16 games to be played in order for an NFL Win Total bet to be processed at the end of the regular season. Here is what the wager would look like on DraftKings Sportsbook before placing a bet.
Player Props and Futures
According to Donahue’s article, FanDuel among other sites also require that a full 16-game regular season would apply. As for player futures or awards (eg. MVP/Comeback Player of the Year etc), Donahue reports it would remain available unless “The league’s decision gives reason for a major market shift.”
Division / Conference / Super Bowl Winner Bets
These bets, assuming the season is not postponed or canceled are likely to remain open according to Donahue. This is due to not needing a set number to determine a winner. He does indicate the report that, “most sportsbooks have been consistent in saying that such bets will remain open until there’s further guidance from the league’s governing body.”
