Push Meaning – When a Bet Ends in a Tie Between the Bettor and the Bookie
Last Updated: May 31, 2022
A push is a tie between the sports bettor and the sportsbook. This can occur when the final result of the points spread bet is exactly on the spread.
In such a situation, all of the bets will be refunded, and the bet will be dubbed a push. The sports bettor also doesn’t pay any juice on push bets.
For example, you’re betting on an NFL game between the Ravens (-10) and the 49ers (+10). No matter which of the two teams you bet on in this scenario, if the outcome results in the Ravens winning by exactly ten points, the result is a push.
