There’s a plethora of unique ways in which you can wager on the 2023 Super Bowl between the Philadelphia Eagles and Kansas City Chiefs, and among them is one you’ll be sweating right up until the clock strikes zero: the Gatorade bath.
That’s right, there are odds on which color Gatorade will be dumped over the head of the winning coach when it becomes clear his team will be the victor, and we have everything you need to know before throwing down your cold, hard cash on one of the funniest props in Super Bowl betting.
A year ago, the Rams dumped blue Gatorade over Sean McVay, cashing those who put money on the color a cool, +400 victory. That means if you put $100 on blue Gatorade being dumped on the winning coach, you’d have won yourself $400.
The Gatorade dunk has been a staple of Super Bowl bettors for years, and the tradition dates back at least 35 years. During that time, there has been plenty of analysis dedicated to trying to determine which color will wind up getting dumped.
Thinking about joining in on the fun? We’ve got you covered. Here’s everything you need to know when betting on the color of the Gatorade dunk for Super Bowl LVII.
2023 Super Bowl Gatorade Color Odds
It should come as no surprise that orange is once again among the favorites to be doused over either Andy Reid or Nick Sirianni at the conclusion of Sunday’s game.
“None” was actually the second favorite heading into last year’s Super Bowl, followed by blue. And while blue remains among the favorites, yellow/green is right up there with it, while none has the longest odds.
BetMGM and DraftKings have “None” as an option. FanDuel will just void bets if there’s no shower for the winning coach.
Dating back to 2001, there has never been a green or red/pink Gatorade dump. The fact that red/pink is among the favorites given what we know about the history is surprising, but one thing we know is that the process is actually random.
Past Super Bowl Gatorade Colors
When blue Gatorade was dumped over Rams coach Sean McVay toward the end of last year’s Super Bowl, it netted a solid payday for those who bet on it. However, it is orange that holds the title as the most common color going back to Super Bowl XXXV in 2001:
Is There Any Correlation Between a Team’s Colors and the Color of the Gatorade?
The short answer is no. If there are instances where a Gatorade dump correlates with that team’s colors, it’s purely happenstance.
Despite its common usage, there has been only one Super Bowl champion since 2001 whose team color is orange — the Broncos in 2016, who dumped orange Gatorade on their head coach. The Steelers used yellow in 2009, the Patriots used blue twice, and the Rams used blue last year. Those are correlations.
However, including the Patriots (whose colors are blue and red) and the Giants (likewise) there have been 11 Super Bowl champions since 2001 whose team color is red, and yet no winner has ever had red Gatorade dumped on its coach.
There’s actually a perfectly logical explanation for this. Nobody knows what color is going to be dumped on a coach’s head until the moment it happens. Gatorade chooses which colors are going to be on each team’s sideline — not the teams — and there’s a multitude of colors on the table for each.
Which cooler they pick up when the time comes winds up being up to whichever players are charged with the deed. And there’s little likelihood that those players — caught up in the excitement of having just won the Super Bowl — are even paying attention to which color is in the cooler they just picked up.
Where You Can Bet on the Gatorade Color
The first time the Gatorade color bet was available at legal books was in 2019 for Super Bowl LIII, when it was approved in New Jersey. In general, getting states to allow the color of the Gatorade for bettors has been problematic.
Currently, sports bettors can wager on the Gatorade color in Illinois, Louisiana, New Jersey, Washington DC, West Virginia and Wyoming in the United States, and in Ontario in Canada. West Virginia’s rules stipulate that the bet must be in an hour before kickoff.
Bettors in those states can find the Gatorade color prop at sportsbooks such as DraftKings, FanDuel, PointsBet and BetMGM, among others.
