On MLK Day I was talking to Vegas bookie Scooch about Super Bowl prop bets for this Behind the Bets column. If you don't know what a prop bet is, try this: Who will score more points on Super Bowl Sunday, LeBron James versus the Lakers or Pittsburgh versus Arizona.

Anwyay, Scooch told me he's terrible at creating them and said that if I came up with a good one, he'd put it up. I countered with this: "Let me ask readers for ideas. If someone's got a good one, you post it." He said, "You bet."

So email me your best prop bet ideas for Super Bowl XLIII by noon on Wednesday, January 28. I'll announce the winners in the column the next day, and Scooch will post them at the eight Boyd sportsbooks (Orleans, Gold Coast, Suncoast, Sam's Town, Fremont, California, Eldorado, Jokers Wild) for all of Vegas to bet on Super Bowl Sunday.
