As noted in this very space on Sunday, Mets’ minor-league sensation Tim Tebow . With his appearance will come higher attendance, swarms of attention and lots of people yelling at each other over, well, nothing really.
Oh, and also: Prop bets.
Over on bookmaker.eu, there are Tebow-specific props. They don’t seem to have much confidence in Tebow, either.
First up, how many times will he strike out? The over/under is 2.5. It’s pretty tough because we don’t have an idea of how many plate appearances he’ll get. If he gets something like eight or nine, I feel like the over is a good bet. He struck out 20 times in 62 at-bats in the Arizona Fall League.
Will he get a hit? The “yes” is +130 while the “no” is -160. So that’s weighted moderately toward him not getting a knock. As such, the home run question isn’t too surprising, despite his.
Will Tebow hit a home run?
That’s an outrageous odd on the no. There isn’t even any reason to bet on that.
Perhaps the best action is on the prop for his first at-bat result
Hit by pitch, +2025
Take the walk. You can bet $10 to win $100.70.
Tebow will be playing in big-league games Wednesday and Friday this week.
