The system update began at 5 a.m. ET and was scheduled to be back in operation at 11 a.m. ET. The maintenance appeared to take 3.5 more hours than expected, as bettors in New York couldn't place bets or look at odds until 2:30 p.m. ET.
A BetRivers representative did not respond to a request for comment made by the Action Network.
The French Open is in Day 2 of the tournament's first round, and BetRivers likely missed an opportunity for bettors to place live bets on the matches. New York is one of the more popular tennis betting states.

There were other sports in action Tuesday morning into Tuesday afternoon, including the U20 World Cup Round of 16 match between USA and New Zealand.
There were no baseball games on Tuesday with a first pitch before 2:30 p.m. ET.
