Sidney Crosby Returns: Yes, There Are Prop Bets

There are a lot of really cool things about America. Democracy, apple pie, footbaw and the NCAA Men's Division I Basketball Tournament are all really cool, but none of them are as cool as prop bets. Prop bets, if you didn't know, are actually scientifically proven to be three times more American than apple pie and baseball combined.

Sidney Crosby returns to the ice for the Pittsburgh Penguins against the New York Rangers tomorrow, and Bovada has four prop bets related to his comeback. They are:

Will Sidney Crosby score a goal March 15th vs. the New York Rangers?
How Many Minutes will Sidney Crosby play March 15th vs. the New York Rangers?
Will Sidney Crosby record a point March 15th vs. the New York Rangers?
How many games will Sidney Crosby play in the 2011-2012 Regular Season?

I'm digging the over 14 1/2 minutes bet for Crosby. The Penguins wouldn't put him on the ice if he wasn't 100 percent healthy, and the Pens absolutely need a win to keep their hopes alive for the No. 1 seed in the Eastern Conference. Crosby has averaged more than 21 minutes per game in his NHL career and played nearly 16 minutes in his season debut against the New York Islanders back on Nov. 21, 2011.
