Proposition Bet

In the context of sports betting, a proposition bet (aka a prop bet) is a wager on an occurrence that does not directly affect the result of the match. This is in contrast with standard bets, which are placed on such things as the winner of the match or the number of goals by which the favorite will win the game.

Proposition Bet Examples

Listed below are just a few examples of proposition bets that can be made:

  • First team to score.
  • Amount of goals a particular player will score.
  • Number of yellow cards awarded to players.
  • Number of player substitutions.
  • Outcome of the coin toss.
  • Whether or not Barcelona’s coach will be wearing a tie.
  • Whether or not it will rain during the match.
  • Whether or not the second-string quarterback will get a snap during the game.
