Default Sportsbook mistake, will they pay up?

So I noticed for an upcoming UFC line that a book messed up and posted the wrong fighter's names. Antonio RODRIGO Noguiera is set to fight Frank Mir, and Antonio ROGERIO Noguiera is set to fight Tito Ortiz. NOT the other way around. I'm picking one of the Noguiera brothers to win, but in the off chance that he loses, I'm gonna cry foul in that the sportsbook can't take my bet because they put down the wrong Noguiera brother in the fight. Would a book usually honor a mistake on their end?

Would depend on the individual book I'd imagine, most books I know of state that you must check your ticket for mistakes before leaving the premises. Worth a shot though, they can only say no.

I think they would call it a no bet and refund everyone. Good if your guy loses, bad if he wins.

they may refund the bet prior to the START of the bout, after that you have no chance, sry JB, there are no win-wins in vegas sportsbetting (your job to check your stub for accuracy)...blame their lazy parents
