Which happens first? The NBA plays its first regular season game or… Kim Kardashian and NBA player Kris Humphries announce they are getting a divorce?
BetOnLine.com, fast becoming one of the largest North American online gambling websites, released this betting prop late Monday.
“Both the looming NBA strike and news of Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries wedding got us thinking our customers would love this betting option,” noted Dave Mason, Props Manager for BetOnline.com.
The NBA is scheduled to begin in October but a strike threatens to postpone or even cancel the season.
More current (and some might say pressing) news had the Kardashian wedding (or weddings since another is planned on the East Coast).
Kardashian is said to have three wedding dresses valued at $20,000 each and a ring valued at more than $2 million. Kim is earning a reported $18 million for the wedding and the event will become a 4-hour television special, one-upping the Royal Wedding in Great Britain.
“Why not offer betting on this wedding?” quipped Mason.
It wouldn’t be the first time Kardashian became synonymous with a popular wagering prop. Kardashian became a novelty bet during the time she was romantically involved with New Orleans Saints player Reggie Bush. His team played in the 2010 Super Bowl, ultimately winning it.
Two years ago, online oddsmakers posted lines on such things as Kim Kardashian Waist Size (26 inches) vs First Half Total for Super Bowl XLIV and Will Kim Kardashian Be Shown Wearing a Saints Shirt or Jersey during Super Bowl XLIV? Kim Kardashian Bust Size + Hips Size (73 inches) vs Total Receiving Yards+Rushing Yards By Reggie Bush (NO) odds were also being offered.
