PROPS

October 15, 2019

It's like a game within the game!

  • Predict which of the two matched up players will win, or whether it will be a Tie.
  • Props (short for Propositions), include Basketball Points, Baseball Hitters, Hockey Points, Soccer Goals, Golf Scores, Football Receiving Yards, Quarterback Yards and Running Back Yards.
  • You win if all your picks are correct!

How to Play

  1. Mark the number of picks you want to play - three to six.
  2. Mark the event numbers you are wagering on. For example, to select Event 5, mark box 5; to select Event 25, mark box 20 and box 5 on the same board.
  3. Mark your predictions - Visitor Win (V), Tie (T) or Home Win (H). You can select a maximum of four ties.
  4. Wager from $2 to $100, as shown on the Selection Slip.

Give the completed slip with your wager to the Retailer before the start of the earliest game you selected. Check your ticket before leaving the store to make sure it's what you selected.

How to Win

  • If all your picks are correct, you win!
  • The payout is your wager multiplied by the PROPS odds for each of your picks. For example:

    If you wagered $2 on three match-ups, and the odds are 2.15, 2.35 and 3.60, you would win:
    $2 x 2.15 x 2.35 x 3.60 = $36.38.

If a player's net yards at the end of the game is a negative number, that player's score will be recorded as zero (0) on the PROPS Event Results List. If both players' scores are recorded as zero (0), an odds value of 1.00 will be assigned to each of the Visitor Win, Tie and Home Win outcomes for that event.
