Game Concepts

  • WAJERLEAGUE: Is this free, fun, realistic sports handicapping contest.
  • LEAGUE: A sub-game with its own set of rules and scope. Multiple contests are usually happening simulatenously. You may play as many or as few contests as you wish.
  • WAJER: What we call a bet. Other than this explanation page, we don't say "bet" or "money" here. We're pretentious like that.
  • WINS and LOSSES: How we keep score. The outcome of a wajer is either a number of wins, or a number of losses.
  • POINTS: (2000 x wins) - (1000 x losses) .
  • AGING: In continuous games, count tow
  • OFFERS: The list of wajers available to be made. Each contest has its own offer list.
  • AWARDS: Virtual trophies awarded for success in leagues.
  • SPOONS: Virtual trophies awarded for non-success in leagues. You don't want spoons.

House Rules

These rules are always in effect, unless overridden by contest-specific rules.


  • WAJERS OFFERED: Include point spreads, alternative point spreads, head-to-head (moneyline), over/under (totals), futures. Offers are updated twice a day.
  • WAJERING WINDOW: Wajers may be placed any time an offer exists, until the game starts. There is no in-game wajering at this time.
  • IN PLAY: This is the maximum amount of points that may be tied up in not-yet-resolved wajers at any given time. This


  1. Each league will maintain its own list of offers, as dictated by the rules of that league.
  2. Odds are expressed European style. 1.909 means you risk 1 to win 1.909, including your original bet. 1.909 is equivalent to -110 in US odds.
  3. Wajers may be placed any time an offer exists.
  4. Any combination of wajers is permitted, except where league rules specify otherwise. This allows hedges, splits, and other strategies.
  5. All wajers must risk at least .25 points and win at least .25 points. (Exception: an "All In" wager, which consumes the last of your bankroll or winnings, does not have to meet these requirements.
  6. Other than the previous rule and the In Play limit (see above), there are no limits on how many wajers you can make or how large each wajer can be.
  7. There is no minimum required number of wajers, or amount. But it is highly advisable to spend all of your bankroll, because there is no incentive to preserve it.
  8. VOID bets occur when the winner of a game cannot be fairly judged; the game is cancelled; or moved to a different site. Wajers are not voided if a game is postponed or rescheduled.


  1. 2- and 3-way parlays are allowed, paying 2.6 to 1 and 6 to 1, respectively.
  2. All wajers in a parlay must be on different games. (No coordinated parlays.)
  3. If a game in a parlay ends in a tie or void, it is removed from the parlay and the parlay is re-calculated as a 2-way parlay or single bet. If calculated as a single bet, it pays the payout for that bet.

Sport-Specific House Rules


  • Games must be played within 5 minutes of completion.
  • Points scored in overtime count towards all wajers.
