In sports and betting contexts, a "dead heat" occurs when two or more competitors or teams finish a race or event with exactly the same result, and it is not possible to determine a clear winner. Dead heats can occur in various sports, including horse racing, athletics, swimming, and even in some team sports where scores can end in a tie.
Dead heats have significant implications in betting, particularly in scenarios where you have placed a wager on the outcome of an event, and the event results in a tie between two or more participants. In such cases, the rules for dead heats come into play, and they can vary depending on the type of bet and on which sport.
