» Dubai World Cup Prop Bets
While the Dubai World Cup will draw some of the best horses from multiple different countries from all across the world; it can make a prop bet such as "which country the winning horse will be from", very interesting betting options. This prop bet specifically will offer the bettor odds that will vary depending on how many horses from a specific country (like Brazil) are actually running in the race. If there are more horses from one country than another, and that country has a few of the favorites; you'll find that the odds on betting on that horse won't pay out nearly as well as betting on a country with only one or two horses running in the race will. There are also other prop betting options on the Dubai World Cup, such as betting on a horse to finish in the top 5. This type of prop bet is popular because it is one of the easier bets to win, but it won't pay out nearly as well as other betting options will.

While this bet typically won't have the best payout (unless you bet on an underdog), it is a great way to place a fairly safe bet, as your horse only would have to beat one other horse in order for you to win your bet.
