The Super Bowl is the most wagered on event in the world for plenty of reasons, but one shines through: the props.
What color of Gatorade will get poured on the winning head coach? Who will the halftime show artist (Rihanna) bring out for guest appearances? What will the first or last song be? Who will win Super Bowl MVP? Heads or tails for the coin flip? Will there be an octopus?
Betting on these markets is an unmatched tradition.
FanDuel in Ontario, Canada has released odds on who the Super Bowl MVP will thank first during his postgame interview, during the trophy ceremony.
The favorite — as it is every year — is team or teammates. This market can be somewhat ambiguous — what counts as a thank you? Is it just the first mention of anyone other than themselves?
Often, sportsbooks grade this market differently. FanDuel says if no one is “thanked,” then all tickets will void. Generally, it’s whoever the person mentions first with a tone of gratitude, even if he doesn’t explicitly say “thank you.”
Who Will Super Bowl MVP Thank First?
The past three Super Bowl MVPs have thanked teammates first. Rams wide receiver Cooper Kupp did so after his win, as did Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes and Patriots quarterback Tom Brady before him.
You’d have to go back to Patriots wide receiver Julian Edelman for a different “thank you.” That year’s MVP went with the fans, which are +800 on this year’s docket.
That implies odds of 11%.
Meanwhile, thanking one’s team or teammates at +110 implies a probability of roughly 48%.
Second-best is a religious figure or religion at +140, which implies a probability of 42%.
