As the biggest sporting event in the United States, the Super Bowl is also the nation’s favorite event for having a few bets.
In addition to all the regular wagers you can have on any NFL game, the Super Bowl has become increasingly famed for the myriad of quirky ‘Prop bets’ (aka Proposition bets) that are available each year.
This season’s Super Bowl is no different and there is a great selection of fun wagers to choose from, even for those with little interest in the sporting action taking place.
Prop Bet Examples
Some Prop bets do relate to the game itself, such as, Will there be a score in the 1st 7:30 of 1st quarter?:
- Yes -230
- No +160
Or, Will there be a score in the final 2:00 of 1st half?
- Yes -370
- No +235
If you’re watching the game as a neutral and don’t know which team to root for, a fun option could be to have a wager on, Will the team that wins the coin toss win the game?
- Yes -110
- No -130
This promises to be a thrilling game with some great offensive play from both teams, so it could be high-scoring. Will both teams combined score 76 or more points to break the Super Bowl record?
- Yes +400
- No -700
In a game in which the media attention is heavily focused on Tom Brady and Patrick Mahomes, perhaps another player could steal the limelight. Will a non-QB throw a touchdown?
- Yes +350
- No -600
You can also bet on, Will any TD be overturned by replay?
- Yes +175
- No -260
Speaking of controversy, if you think that the game could become heated, then you might want to consider having a wager on, Will any player be ejected for throwing a punch or fighting?
- Yes +750
- No -2000
