At first, it looked like the 2024 Super Bowl Gatorade color result was going to be "None," as the Chiefs did not initially pour Gatorade on their head coach. However, after the first wave of celebrations died down, the Super Bowl Gatorade color was clearly purple.

Past Super Bowl Gatorade Colors

When purple Gatorade was dumped over Andy Reid 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 a 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 in 2022. 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 had red Gatorade dumped on its coach.

There's actually a perfectly logical explanation for this. Nobody knows what color Gatorade is going to be dumped on a coach 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.
