Betting odds made for LeBron vs. Super Bowl
If you're a Miami Heat fan who wants to make the Super Bowl a little more "interesting," gambling houses are ready to take your money.
Super Bowl Sunday is one of the biggest betting days of the year and to interest casual fans, sportsbooks typically create bizarre prop bets that crossover into other sports.
Prop bets, or proposition bets, are bets made that hinge on the occurrence during a game of an event not directly affecting the game's outcome.
That's where the Miami Heat come in.
Just a few hours before kickoff in New Orleans, the Heat will face the Raptors in Toronto and you can gamble on the performances of several Miami players vs. events in the Super Bowl.
For instance, Sportsbook.com will allow you to bet on who will score more points; LeBron vs. Toronto or the 49ers vs. the Ravens. On Friday, LeBron was a 1.5 point favorite over San Francisco.
If you're a fan of Dwyane Wade you can place money on whether he'll score more points than pass completions by 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick; a line that currently favors Wade by 4 points.
Chris Bosh is part of one of the stranger prop bets as the website asks whether the Heat forward will score more points than the amount of the largest lead by either the Ravens or 49ers in the Super Bowl.
The Heat prop bets are just a few of the many strange odds that are now listed, including those listed on soccer teams, hockey players and the entire Big East conference.
