What Does ‘Rest of the Match’ Mean in Betting?


The phrase “rest of the match” refers to all of the remaining plays and outcomes in a given sporting event, typically after a certain point in the game has already been reached. This can include any remaining time in a given period, any remaining time left in the match, and any additional periods or over time that may be necessary to determine the outcome of the game.

This would usually apply to prop bets where you can bet on a certain outcome within the next time period in a match, often the next ten minutes of play. As play enters the final minutes, betting on the ‘rest of the match’ would then come into effect.
