When Bruce Pearl’s coaching his Auburn Tigers men’s hoops team, the dude is an absolute sweaty mess. Hell, that’s why ol’ Bruce is currently leading our “Sweat 16” contest, which has you guys vote on which college basketball coach is the sweatiest while standing on the sideline. Given the fact that Pearl walks away with one of those nasty sweat map patterns on his shirt (see below), it’s clear that the guy could use some button-downs that breathe a little more so he doesn’t walk away wearing a shirt that’s drenched — you know, like something from Mizzen+Main.

Anyway, while Bruce Pearl has admitted that he needs a sweat management plan to help keep things, somewhat, intact, that doesn’t mean college hoops fans know that he’s going to end up with a pool of sweat beneath him by the time his team’s game is over. And with the NCAA Tournament’s Final Four going on this weekend — which pits Pearl’s Tigers against the Virginia Cavaliers — you can bet that Bruce Pearl will be sweating his ass off. No, seriously, you can really bet on it.

That’s because there are a few odd Final Four prop bets that have been released from sports gambling site Bovada that includes Pearl’s sweatiness, coaches crying and a few other things. Take a look at some of the prop bets available on the site.
