A prop bet is a “novelty” or specialty bet. Prop bets are wagers placed on aspects of a game that don’t include a winner, loser, or points. For example:
- What color is the Gatorade the team will drink?
- Who will win the coin toss?
- Which team will score first?
- Which player will get the first penalty?
- Will a player score over a certain number of points?
A prop bet can be on almost anything that can happen in the sports world and often make in-game play more exciting.
