  • Looking to place Super Bowl prop bets, but don't know where to start? You've got options if you're in one of nine states with online sports betting.
  • See where betting is legal, how to deposit at a sportsbook, and which props to bet for 49ers vs. Chiefs below.

You’ve heard the chatter about Super Bowl prop bets for years. They can make every moment and play of 49ers vs. Chiefs that much more exciting.

And since you’re here, you probably want to get in on the action.

A prop bet is a specific wager on a player, person or event that isn’t necessarily related to the outcome of the game. Think Patrick Mahomes over or under 2.5 total touchdowns, which player will catch the first pass of the Super Bowl, or what color the Gatorade bath on the winning coach will be.

If you’re in a U.S. state that’s legalized sports betting, great. You’ve got options.

Here’s how to bet Super Bowl props:

Step 1: Where Can I Place Super Bowl Prop Bets?

The first step to placing Super Bowl prop bets is figuring out if sports betting is legal in your state.

There are three levels to legality in the United States, as it stands now — legal online (so you can bet from a phone or computer), legal in-person (so you can only bet at an authorized casino) and illegal (no betting yet).

You can click on the the sportsbooks listed next to each state to bet Super Bowl props now.

For the first four states, there are more options for sportsbooks.

Legal Online Sports Betting

Legal In-Person Sports Betting

These states are offering sports betting in-person at authorized casinos. You cannot bet online. But it’s not always convenient — in the state of New York, the closest casino to New York City is more than two hours away.

  • Mississippi
  • New York
  • Arkansas
  • Delaware

No Sports Betting

Every state not listed above. A handful of states like Tennessee, Illinois and Colorado have sports betting on the way, but won’t have it up and running by the Super Bowl. Others are nowhere near legalization.

Step 2: Deposit at a Sportsbook

Most states with online betting allow you to deposit money from your phone straight into an account. Use one of the links above to start the depositing process.

You can get 54-1 odds on either side of the Super Bowl moneyline if you’re in New Jersey (bet now at MGM) or Indiana (bet now at BetRivers).

DraftKings is also offering 3-1 on the moneyline if you’re in Pennsylvania or West Virginia (bet here).

Step 3: Figure Out Which Props You Want to Bet

Legal, American sportsbooks will not offer the zany props like national anthem length, color of Joe Buck’s tie and Donald Trump tweets after kickoff.

Most props at sportsbooks like DraftKings and FanDuel are focused on the game — player yardage, first touchdown, things like that.

Fortunately, our experts have been analyzing these props for the last two weeks, and there’s plenty of value left on the board.
