What is a Prop Bet?
A prop bet – or “proposition bet” — is a type of sports bet that is not directly related to the outcome of a single game.
For example, a traditional sports bet may include picking the winner of a game, or betting on the over/under of total points scored, or betting the spread. You can think of those types of bets as the general bets, while prop bets are for events that occur on the side of the game.
Examples of prop bets would be whether or not Patrick Mahomes will throw for over or under 300 yards in this week’s game, or whether LeBron James would snag over or under 8.5 rebounds.
There are also “futures” bets, which are not the same as prop bets but are often thought of in the same light. A futures bet is true to its name: It’s when you place a bet on an event that will occur in the future, such as whether Russell Wilson will win the MVP next year, or if the New York Yankee will win the World Series.
