Super Bowl LIII Prop Bets: Toronto Raptors Edition

New, comments

Finally, a Super Bowl party that every Raptors fan can enjoy!

The biggest gambling day of the year is upon us - Super Bowl Sunday.

If you frequent this site, there’s a more-than-decent chance you probably don’t care too much about Football, or the Patriots, or Tom Brady. Whether you’re interested or not, there’s an easy way to get interested in the festivities - Prop Bets!

Every year, I run a Super Bowl pool among friends and co-workers. As with most pools, the more participants, the better. To ensure some of the non-Football fans are interested, I like to mix in some “Football Lite” questions.

For this year’s Super Bowl, I’m sharing the pool with all of you. Only this time, since the Raptors happen to be hosting the Clippers on Super Sunday, all prop bets will be Raptor-focused. Feel free to play along with your friends, and don’t forget to share your picks in the comments.
