A Proposition Bet (Prop Bet), in gambling speak, is a form of gambling normally reserved for big events such as title fights and championship football games; where gamblers can wager for or against a certain situation occurring during said event.
Since this weekend’s game is clearly our Super Bowl, and with Iowa’s remaining 2014 schedule not looking as exciting or challenging as this one (I’ll give them Wisconson), we thought it appropriate to offer some intriguing side bet action for you to consider.
