Frequently Asked Questions
How Does Your Service Work?
We have a mix of free content and prop bet selections, combined with premium subscriber content, and at our highest tier of service, a chat community where we release 1000+ picks per year.
Basic subscribers get access to all site content, featuring 6-12 prop picks per week, complete with in-depth analysis, across multiple sports. These premium articles include best prop bet recommendations for feature events like NFL primetime games, NFL Draft & Combine props, UFC Fight cards, NBA props, and MLB props.
Premium subscribers get all access to the same content, plus all of our picks across every sport, plus access to our premium chat.
What is your win record? Can I see your historical results?
Yes, we track the results of all our official plays and they are publically accessible. You can find details and historical results on Our Results page.
A quick outline of our results:
- 2018 NFL props (free, offshore only): 57.8%, +38.25 Units
- 2019 MLB props (subscription): 59.8%, +47.79 Units
- 2019 NBA props (free for NFL Slack subscribers until Feb 2020): 62% in 2019 & 42-20 (67.6%) , +19.62 Units in 2020.
- 2019 NFL props (subscription, offshore & domestic books): 60%, +106.88 Units
Check the results page linked above for all the latest figures.
How many plays do you put out?
You can expect 25-40 props per week, depending on the season.
Between April 1st, 2019 and January 2020, we put out 1,181 official picks. Even excluding some 500 NBA picks, which we’ve done mostly for free at a 60% win rate, that’s 4.2 picks/day on average.
Then there are futures, leans, and game props that we’re putting out in our Slack weekly. Add it up, and we likely put out more +EV picks-per-dollar than any betting service out there.
What is Slack Chat?
Slack is a chat room that acts as the home and heart of Bet the Prop. This is where our picks are released and alerted to our users. After joining, Premium subscribers will be sent an invite you join the community. In the Slack you’ll:
- Get alerts on new plays
- Interact with and get custom advice from our team of analysts and sharp subscribers
- Ask questions and earn how to become a better bettor by long-term winners
- Hang out and chat with fellow bettors while watching our prop bets play out
What are the best sportsbooks for player props?
It depends on your region, but generally speaking, the best offshores sportsbooks for US-based bettors when it comes to props are — BetOnline, 5 Dimes, Bookmaker, MyBookie, Bovada, Heritage, and Sportsbook.
Non-US bettors can use most of those books mentioned above, plus Pinnacle and Bet365.
If you live in a regulated state such as New Jersey, Pennsylvania or Nevada, you also have access to pop-friendly books like DraftKings, FanDuel, BetAmerica, FoxBet, and PointsBet.
I live in New Jersey/Pennsylvania. Do you cover props here?
Yes, we have two dedicated analysts covering the New Jersey props market specifically. Why? Because we consider New Jersey to be the best props betting market in the world currently. The selection of books, bonuses, and soft lines make it the place to be for prop bettors.
Pennsylvania is slightly less advanced but coming on quickly. They offer a lot of the same markets currently available in New Jersey, so we can also help you if you live there, too.
If you live in either state, make sure you take advantage of our expertise in these amazing regulated prop markets.
What is the Prop Builder?
If you’ve been following us for any length of time, you’ve probably heard us refer to the Prop Builder (or PB).
The Builder is a third-party prop betting software application and book that allows you to place prop bets across multiple sports, including things like H2H props.
While the Prop Builder may have a slightly different appearance or name at different books, it’s all the same piece of software with the same lines. It is available at the following offshore books: BetOnline, MyBookie, 5 Dimes, and Heritage.
Do you guys have any free plays for tonight?
We mix in a healthy amount of free plays and analysis. Articles often have one free play, with the rest behind a paywall.
You can also find plenty of free prop plays on our Twitter feed.
Can I buy a subscription for one sport only?
Not directly, no. We have one subscription covering multiple sports.
If you only want props for one sport, MLB strikeout props, for example, you have several options:
- You can buy a six-month package, which covers the entirety of baseball season
- You can buy a weekly or monthly subscription and pause or cancel it at the season’s end
- All weekly and monthly subscriptions may be paused and resumed at any time
We understand that not everyone wants to play all the sports, but our all-sport subscription prices are extremely competitive compared to our competition, some of whom charge up to $300 per week per sport.
Can I buy just the picks alone, without the chat community?
No, we discontinued this option in early 2020.
The gap in value between the “picks-only” subscription and the Premium, chat subscription was too great, and we want all subscribers to get a similar experience with similar value.
Premium subscribers are not required to be an active member of our chat community, and if all you want is the picks, you can still sign up for the Premium package and use the chat to simply get pick alerts.
