Total Solar Eclipse 2017

Nowadays, you can practically bet on anything. Prop betting lines have extended beyond the realm of sports into entertainment, politics and more. In some cases, betting lines can be ridiculous.

They also allow for more people to get involved in an industry where they may not feel welcome (i.e. non-sports fans).  Given all this, it is not too farfetched to think of prop bets for the upcoming solar eclipse on August 21, 2017.
