Wob’s 2018-19 NBA Prop Sheet: All the Drama We Wish We Could Bet On

Sep 18, 2018 12:50 AM EDT
  • The NBA is full of drama, poster dunks, backhanded memes and burner accounts.
  • You can bet on a lot these days, but not quite enough -- as evidenced by the lack of crazy NBA props out in the marketplace.
  • It's time to change that.

Regular season win totals, MVP odds, Rookie of the Year — you name it, there’s probably somewhere to bet it.

Well, that’s not entirely true. The NBA has been known to create as much off-the-court drama as it does in-game action, and that has me thinking…

What are some prop bets that aren’t actually prop bets but should totally be prop bets?

If only there was a way to wager on ALL the things that make this league so great…

Until then, let’s book our own action on these 2018-19 NBA season hypotheticals.
