Atlanta— The entire world is ready for Super Bowl 53, and the excitement is everywhere. Office pools are all over the place, and people are placing their bets on who will win the game.

Propositional bets, commonly called Prop Bets, are the new thing being talked about everywhere, and here at CWS, we have a fun new challenge. We have our first-ever CWS Prop Bets Challenge, and we have assembled an array of CWS experts and CWS readers to take their chance at winning our challenge.

The cost? Nothing. Just pride on the line. Just pretend money, all in fun.

Here’s how prop bets work.

To bet the ‘favored’ the amount of ‘money’ risked to earn $100 is listed. For example, a safety – a rare occurrence, it would take $1250 bet on the favorite, NO SAFETY, to earn $100.  However, the underdog, YES SAFETY, would take a $100 bet, and if a safety is registered, $800 is earned.

The bigger the underdog, the more that can be gained, of course, from a $100 bet. Then again, there is a reason for underdogs in the first place.

Stay tuned to the picks our CWS guests and ‘experts’ make, and we’ll find out who take the title of our first CWS Prop Bets Challenge!
