There’s a prop bet being offered by PointsBet on Thursday that sticks out when a bettor clicks into the Thursday Night Football game page for Broncos vs. Colts.

That’s because the usual offering on player props — touchdowns, rushing and receiving totals and yards passing — is joined by something very unusual: The odds on a player to fumble.

It’s not your garden variety prop, but PointsBet seized the opportunity with Denver Broncos running back Melvin Gordon, the league’s leader in fumbles with four through four games, playing  on Thursday night.

PointsBet is offering 4/1 odds to gamblers should they bet and Gordon fumbles. The sportsbook is allowed to offer the market in Colorado, Indiana, Kansas, Louisiana, New Jersey and West Virginia. They cannot offer the prop, per state regulations, in Iowa, Michigan, New York and Pennsylvania.

“We're always looking for innovative ways to capture the conversations that are being held by sports fans around America,” said PointsBet trader Sam Garriock. “With Javonte Williams' unfortunate injury last week, Melvin Gordon is thrust right into the spotlight for tonight's game and we're sure that there will be a ton of interest in his ball security. The house is going to need him to go full Tiki Barber High and Tight tonight.”
