THON 2024 Prop Bets

It’s about that time/ THON Weekend is nearly underway, and dancers will soon stand for 46 hours all For The Kids. Throughout the weekend, there are many activities and sights to be seen. How else should you prepare for the long haul than to place some fake bets?

If you don’t have prior knowledge of what a prop bet is, Onward State co-founder Evan Kalikow said it best: “A prop bet is short for proposition bet. Basically, it’s a bet on something not commonly betted upon. For example, lots of people bet on the score of the Super Bowl, but how many people bet on how many times the winning coach will say ‘humbled’ in the post-game press conference? That’s a prop bet.”

Onward State is not a gambling site. We do not encourage anyone to bet on THON, but we do encourage you to have fun.
