What is a Prop Bet? A prop bet (short for proposition bet) is a type of sports bet that doesn't involve the final outcome of a game or match. Instead, it focuses on specific events or outcomes within the game, such as which player will score the first touchdown, how many points a team will score in a quarter, or which team will win the coin toss.
Examples of Prop Bets on Different Sports:
NFL: Which player will score the first touchdown? Over/under on total passing yards for a quarterback in a game? Which team will score first?
NBA: How many points will a player score in a game? Which player will hit the most 3-pointers? Over/under on total points scored by both teams in a game?
