- 2019 Miss Universe pageant begins Sunday, December 8th
- We’ve rounded up the most entertaining prop bets for the big event
- SBD has our unique early odds on who will win the crown
In just over a month’s time the 68th edition of the Miss Universe Pageant will take place in Atlanta, Georgia with the ladies searching for the prestigious prize where last year’s winner Catriona Gray will hand off her crown.
Last year we were able to unearth incredible value on Gray to the tune of +6600, so if you placed a bet on her you’d have been pretty happy with yourself. While the books have yet to offer odds on the main event, SBD has you covered with what the odds may look like plus some fun prop bets to consider.
There’s almost a certainty one of them won’t come true but if it somehow does it’ll break the internet yet again.

While it is difficult to handicap which woman might come out on top, there tends to be countries that find themselves in the mix to win every year, with the Philippines winning two of the last four and South Africa coming out on top in 2017. Those countries boast some of the notable contenders again this year as well.
Historically Venezuela is a Solid Value Pick
In the last eleven Miss Universe contests, Venezuela has been a force in this competition – winning three times (2008, 2009, 2013), so you could do a lot worse in betting on great value to emerge victorious.

Taking that even further, however, shows that Venezuela has been outstanding in major pageants since 2008.

Will Steve Harvey Announce the Wrong Winner?

This one has all the makings of yet another incredible moment to send everyone in a tizzy. As a refresher, watch this video from 2015 when host Steve Harvey incorrectly named Miss Colombia the winner instead of Miss Philippines.
He hasn’t had an epic faceplant in three subsequent pageants, so don’t expect him to do it again. But I think we can all agree that would be absolutely fantastic!
Will Donald Trump Tweet About Miss Universe?

Trump owned the competition from 1996 to 2015 until he sold it to WME/IMG. He’s been known to tweet some outrageous things (shocker!) including this doozy from 2013.
Do you think Putin will be going to The Miss Universe Pageant in November in Moscow – if so, will he become my new best friend?
