Default Quick Prop Bet Question

High school senior who plays on soccer team, but nothing extroadinary. I bet he can't make 1 in 3 from 31 yard line. We're going in about 10min so is this +EV or should i try to change the bet a little. He also gets around 5 warm-ups and kicks it off a Tee.
side note- 1-1 for $400

he will beat you in this bet. do not do it.. unless by not extraordinary you mean AWFUL. i was pretty decent, and i could hit 10/10 from the 31 without ever having kicked a football in my life before. same goes for most of my teammates. its much easier for a soccer player than you would think

I personally think he can't get the distance without compromising accuracy. I'm gunna go with the bet and hope for the best, oh another note. P.E. class could be on the track while kicking so could make him nervous.

unless this is an angle shoot where you're hoping he makes more than one out of three and then you hit him with hahahaha, i said make one of out of three not three of three and beat him up and take his money this is a horribly stupid bet for you. and even if it is an angleshoot, he'll probably stop kicking after he makes the first one so you still lose.

so yea, change the terms, cause you're going to lose your $400 otherwise.

41 yard field goal seems pretty hard, without warmups if hes never done it before id say you were gold, but giving him warmups prolly makes it -EV I would think.

31 yards are you kidding?
Prob betting in 'soccer' is like who can hit the crossbar first from the half way line and stuff, not who can get the ball in the net from 31 yards, rofl...

I think he means he is kicking a field goal with a football. At least I hope so, otherwise its ungodly stupid. I havent played soccer since 4th grade recess and even I could put a soccer ball in the net from 31 yars away
