The Run Line is another type of line used in Baseball. There are two types of run lines. These two types of lines follow the same idea as the two puck lines except that instead of goals, the spreads and totals are based on runs. Wagers on Total Runs or Run Lines are based on listed pitchers. If a non-listed pitcher starts for either team, the game is scored as no action for both wager types. The game must also go 9 innings (8 1/2 if the home team is ahead) to have action for both wager types, otherwise the game is scored as no action. If the game does go 9 innings (or 8 1/2 if the home team is ahead) and the game is called or suspended, the final score will be determined as the score after the last completed inning unless the home team scores to tie or take the lead in the bottom half of the inning, in which case the final score is determined as the score at the time the game is called.
