DraftKings reportedly refunded all Nick Chubb bets following his gruesome injury Monday night.  Some sportsbook operators are becoming infuriated as gamblers are demanding refunds from other books, FanDuel included.

Even ahead of Chubb's injury, Dave Mason of BetOnline made it clear his company wasn't about to cave.

"Hopefully no players get hurt tonight, but IF one does & books refund bets, its important to understand some books "give back" to the bettor in more important ways.  For tonight's NO-CAR ML, one book has 30cent straddle & 4.26% hold. Another - 28c & 4.17%"

DraftKings refunded bets on Aaron Rodgers in Week 1 after he went down with a season ending injury after just a few snaps.

FanDuel and the majority of other sportsbooks refused to make such refunds.


The Browns star Chubb is also done for season with a knee injury so bad ESPN refused to show the replay in a loss to the Steelers.  Chubb was carted off the field.

"I'm told the replay of Nick Chubb getting injured is not to be seen," ESPN broadcasters Joe Buck said on the ABC broadcast.
