Some prop bets from Bovada.lv, one of the better-known online gambling sites. Its license is issued by the Kahnawake Gaming Commission, located in the Mohawk Territory of Kahnawake, Canada.

The vigorish or vig, the cut that Bovada takes on the bet (usually 10 percent), is included in the odds. The odds listed here might have changed by the time you read this.

The amount listed as collected includes the original $100 bet, plus the winnings.

Bet $100 on No, win, collect $120.
