A prop bet is a wager on whether a specific event will take place during a game or sporting event. It is not normally tied to the result.
Prop bets fall into two broad categories: player props and game props. Read on for some prop betting examples and to learn how to place a prop bet.
This type of bet focuses on a particular aspect of a player’s performance. These are examples of player props:
- The total passing yards, receiving yards or rushing yards an NFL player will rack up during a game.
- A player to score the first touchdown, the last touchdown or a touchdown at any point in a game.
- The total points, rebounds, assists, blocks or steals a basketball player will record during a game, or whether a player will get a double-double or a triple double.
- A baseball player to score a home run.
- A hockey or a soccer player to score the first goal, the last goal or a goal at any time.
These props focus on an aspect of a game that does not pertain to the result:
- The total points an NFL team will score in a game, a half or a quarter.
- The first NBA team to reach 15 points in a game or in a quarter.
- Whether an extra innings will be required in an MLB game.
- Both teams to score in a soccer game.
