Exotic Bet

An exotic bet on sports events shouldn't be confused with horse racing's exotic bets like Exacta, Quinella, Trifecta, etc.

An exotic bet is a bet on the outcome of a special sports event other than the conventional side, line, handicap or total bets. Exotic bets offer a wider range of betting options. Exotic bets are known as proposition bets in the United States.
