With the exception of the Super Bowl, NFL prop bets typically aren't posted until the day of the games. With the Vikings and Eagles showdown quickly approaching, the folks over at BetOnline.ag will be offering a truly unique NFC Championship prop bet that is worthy of your consideration.

Here's the unique NFC Championship prop bet offered by BetOnline: Will the Eagles-Vikings tilt be decided by a score on the last play of the game? If you don't think the final play of the game will be a score that decides the affair, the odds are a staggering -2000. That means to win just $100, you'd have to pony up two grand. Of course, if the game ends on a victory formation kneel down, you'd be a winner.
Betting that the final play is a game-deciding score, however, could make you a heaping mound of cash. The odds are plus 1200, which means a bet of $10 will net you $120, and a wager of $100 will put a cool $1,200 in your wallet.
I like this prop bet for a number of reasons. The point spread has been hovering around -3 in favor of the road Vikings. That means the oddsmakers like the game to end by a field goal margin, and that margin could very well come on the final play of the game.
Also, what does history tell us about the Vikings? That their playoff games have been known to end on the game's final snap.
Least you think this prop bet isn't worth pondering, let me share a quick story.
One of my closest friends in the world was in Reno last weekend and placed multiple bets at the Peppermill Casino on the New Orleans Saints. He took the Saints moneyline twice, once at plus 5, and even had the stones to parlay the Jaguars moneyline and Saints moneyline.
Here's what he was 10 seconds away from winning.
Then again, if the prop bet offered by BetOnline this weekend was available during Sunday afternoon's NFC Divisional showdown, a simple $100 bet would have netted him almost the same amount had the Saints hung on.
Such is the life of an NFL gamblier.
