All wagers associated with the Bills vs. Bengals Week 17 Monday Night Football game are set to void after the NFL announced on Tuesday afternoon that the game would not resume this week.

The game was suspended on Monday night after Bills safety Damar Hamlin went into cardiac arrest during the contest’s first quarter. Emergency personnel administered CPR on the 24-year-old for roughly 10 minutes while players and staff from both teams were visible with grief. Some were in tears. Members from both teams circled together and knelt in prayer.

As of 1:23 p.m. ET, Hamlin is in critical condition at the University of Cincinnati Medical Center, according to Buffalo Bills officials.

Earlier on Tuesday, the team had said in a statement that Hamlin’s heart stopped on the field before he was resuscitated by first responders. The team reported that Hamlin had been sedated and has been undergoing further testing and treatment.

At every major American sportsbook, bets on suspended games are voided “unless played within the same scheduling week.” The NFL confirmed in a statement on Tuesday that Bills vs. Bengals would not resume in this scheduling week.

“The NFL has made no decision regarding the possible resumption of the game at a later date,” the league said in the statement.

In the minutes after the statement’s release, FanDuel voided all wagers associated with the contest. The sportsbook had released a statement earlier on Tuesday that it was awaiting further notice from the league before taking any action.

As of publish, DraftKings had yet to refund all bets made on Bills vs. Bengals. Pregame wagers had been refunded while lives ones hadn’t. The sportsbook has not released any public comment since Monday night.

Caesars has paid out all tickets that were decided prior to the game’s suspension, including first TD scorer. The sportsbook has voided all other wagers.

BetMGM has yet to refund any wagers. The sportsbook said it would void all One Game Parlay bets if the game doesn’t resume by Wednesday night. All other Bills vs. Bengals wagers will be refunded is the game does not resume by Monday, Jan. 9.

BetRivers, PointsBet and other major online sportsbooks have refunded all wagers.

Wagers for NFL games for Week 18 remain open, subject to league updates. Marketplaces for Ravens vs. Bengals are non-existent as of Tuesday afternoon.

Meanwhile, only Caesars and BallyBet have lines available for Patriots vs. Bills.

Hamlin, a starter in the Bills secondary, was drafted out of Pittsburgh in 2021.

By Tuesday afternoon, a crowdfunding campaign for a toy drive led by Hamlin’s foundation meant for children in and near his hometown of McKees Rocks, Pa. had raised more than $4 million.

The toy drive had taken place in 2020, but all proceeds from the renewed crowdfunding campaign will now aid his foundation.
