Here Are Prop Bets For The First Episode Of ‘The Last Dance’

Those of us who desperately want something to watch that isn’t re-runs of whatever Netflix show we stumble onto are in for a treat this weekend. ESPN’s The Last Dance, a 10-part documentary that takes a look at the 1997-98 Chicago Bulls, begins, with the first two chapters airing on Sunday evening at 9 and 10 p.m. EST.

Considering the fact that fans are captivated by that team — Michael Jordan and Phil Jackson’s last squad as members of the franchise — and the fact that the COVID-19 pandemic has canceled sports and kept people worldwide locked at home, it’s not a stretch to say this is as highly-anticipated of an event that the basketball world has experienced in some time. It’s something that goes beyond hoops, as that Bulls squad was a cultural phenomenon, led by one of the most famous athletes to ever walk the earth.

On top of all of this, prop bets exist for the first episode of the series, which should surprise no one, because there is nothing to wager on right now outside of Belarusian soccer. These odds come via, and only apply to the show’s opening hour.

Per an email, all of these apply for the hour in which the episode occurs, while the “First person to be shown” bet does not include Jordan. The most interesting wagers, in my opinion, are +300 that this will win an Emmy, and seeing how Obama appears in it, putting him at +200 to tweet about it seems like it could be free money. But of course, we will not know for sure until the first episode airs on Sunday evening.
