What’s the fun of betting on the Super Bowl if you don’t bet on a novelty prop?
Wagering on the coin flip, the color of the Gatorade dump or the length of the national anthem is a tried-and-true tradition for many fans sitting down to watch the game.
Several sportsbooks have yet to release the odds for some of these novelty props, but we will update this story as they update their books.
Super Bowl Coin Flip Odds
You can actually get 50% implied odds on this bet! While most other books are pricing this at worse than +100 odds (50% implied), Caesars will let you pick heads or tails at the full even money price.
DraftKings and BetMGM have -105 odds on either the Bengals or Rams to win the coin toss. Caesars is pricing that line at -101 each.
A quirk at BetMGM that the others don’t have is you can bet on what the call will be on the toss. Heads or tails is -105 for that, too. You can also bet on what the decision of the coin toss will be: receive or defer. Receiving nets you +375 odds. Deferring is -500.
Super Bowl Gatorade Color Odds
This one is a classic.
Since 2006, the most common color poured on the winning team’s coach has been orange.
Naturally, that means orange is the favorite this year, too. At both DraftKings and BetMGM, orange is the +200 favorite.
Last year’s pour was blue — dumped on Buccaneers coach Bruce Arians — which netted bettors $700 for every $100 they wagered. Orange had been the far-and-away favorite, too, at +125.
That’s because the Chiefs had poured orange Gatorade over Andy Reid after Super Bowl LIV, which Kansas City won over the San Francisco 49ers. Since the Chiefs were favorites for Super Bowl LV, sportsbooks figured odds were it would be orange again.
If no Gatorade dump occurs, BetMGM will refund all wagers.
At DraftKings, though, one of their options is “None.” That means if no dump takes place, you lose.
Funny enough, “None” is the second-best favorite at the sportsbook.
DraftKings’ last novelty prop involves the jersey number of the first touchdown scorer. If it’s under 23.5, a $140 bet nets you $100. If it’s 24 or higher, a $100 bet nets you $110.
