NFL Combine Prop Bets: Jake Locker, Cam Newton 40 Times Highlight Prop Lines

In the world of sports, gamblers can bet on just about every aspect of the game. Prop bets are always a fun alternative to the typical point-spread or moneyline gambling ways and with the NFL Combine rapidly approaching, bettors can wager on everything from 40 times to bench press repetitions. Washington's Jake Locker and Auburn's Cam Newton are featured prominently in the Bodog prop bets posted on Tuesday, with bettors able to wager on whether the fastest 40 time will be over or under 4.3 second, among other things.

After the jump, a few sample from the Bodog NFL combine bets.

Who will have the fastest 40 Yard Dash Time between Locker and Newton? Locker is listed as EVEN and Newton is at -140.

Who will have the fastest 40 Yard Dash Time between Locker and Christian Ponder? Locker is at -150 and Ponder is at +110.

The over/under for most bench press repetitions is set at 41.5. For a competition within the competition, bettors can choose whether Da'Quan Bowers or Nick Fairley will have the most repetitions on the bench at the combine. The same goes for Fairley and Marcell Dareus, as well as Bowers and Dareus.

The vertical leap test has an over/under of 41.5 inches. Like the 40-yard dash, bettors can pick between two players, as well. Will A.J. Green or Julio Jones jump higher? What about Green and highly-touted cornerback Patrick Peterson? Nebraska cornerback Prince Amukamara will fare.

Yes, this is what it's come to. The combine, a chance for teams to evaluate prospects and players to boost their draft stock, has become a spectacle and the gambling world is involved. If nothing else, it provides a form of entertainment while watching some of the future stars of the NFL run through workouts that are generally boring.
