Proposition, or props, bets are always exciting, but sometimes there are props that scare the ever-living pumpkin spice latte out of you. Yet, it’s hard to resist the temptation. Like watching a car crash in slow motion, your mesmerized mind instructs you to click confirm on the wager slip. Our online sportsbook offers several such spine-tingling options.
UFC Fight Night Oct 31: Anderson Silva vs Uriah Hall
Anderson Silva to Win in Round 5 (+3000)
Nearly one million Americans suffer from arachnophobia, so let’s start with “The Spider’s” main card scrap with favorite Uriah Hall. Anderson Silva’s (34-10) legendary 14-year UFC career is likely over after this fight, and he’ll be leaving it all on the mat vs Hall (16-9). Silva has lost his last two cage matches, and never in his career has he lost three in a row.
While it’s certainly possible for Silva to defeat Hall, it’s terrifying to imagine him winning in the fifth round. The 45-year-old Spider would need to be a supernatural stealthy killer to score a win that late in the game. This scary UFC prop bet is showing at +3000, so $10 wins a courageous gambler $300. Oh, what a tangled web we weave.
NFL Week 8: Pittsburgh Steelers at Baltimore Ravens
Race to 10 Points: Neither Team (+7000)
When the Steelers and Ravens clash in Baltimore this Sunday, two elite defenses will take the field. In the words of Edgar Allan Poe, “Deep into that darkness peering, long I stood there, wondering, fearing, doubting, dreaming dreams no mortal ever dared to dream before.” What if the top-ranked Ravens D and the sixth-ranked Steel Curtain are so stingy that neither team reaches 10 points?
A final score of 9-8, with five field goals and a safety, isn’t completely insane. This could be a creepy smart props play with a huge payout, if the defenses stand tall in Baltimore. When Big Ben knocks on the end zone door, quote the Raven, “Nevermore!”
NCAAF Week 9: W. Kentucky at No. 11 BYU
First to Score: W Kentucky (+350)
Winning Margin: W Kentucky to Win By 13-18 Points (+9000)
Almost the entire college football world is expecting the Cougars to win this game by 30-40 points, but what if the Hilltoppers Have Eyes? Western Kentucky has played an extremely difficult schedule so far this year, and it may have prepared them for BYU. Imagine the fear being struck in the hearts of the Cougars if the Hilltoppers score first, setting the tone.
Western Kentucky hasn’t covered the spread yet this season, and BYU wouldn’t even see them coming. It’d be as if the Hilltoppers were ghosts, gliding through the game on supernatural energy. If Western Kentucky can win by 13 points, that would be the perfect ending to our props betting story. Sports betting at its spookiest!
“Mister, will you play with us?”
