Super Bowl Betting Props

For hardcore bettors the Super Bowl is more about betting props than actually watching the game. For prop bettors the Super Bowl is the holy grail and nothing else comes close. Even though the big game in Indianapolis is still more than a week away most books have already begun posting their props.

At Bovada the Super Bowl props list has been growing steadily day by day all week long. Some of the more fun Super Bowl props available right now at Bovada don't even have anything to do with the game. We're talking about betting on the national anthem, the half time show and who will be shown or talked about during the game. Some specific props and odds available include how long it will take Kelly Clarkson to sing the national anthem with the over/under at one minute 34 seconds, how many times will Peyton Manning be shown with the over/under at 3.5 and what color Gatorade will be poured on the winning coach, with yellow the favorite at 7/4.

Of course you can also bet on game props at Bovada. They're offering the usual props such as first score of the game, total yards of first pass, most passing yards between Tom Brady and Eli Manning and of course the result of the coin toss. They also already have odds up for Super Bowl MVP with Tom Brady getting the best odds at 13/10. The odds on a few other players include Eli Manning at 9/4, Rob Gronkowski at 15/2, Victor Cruz at 12/1 and Hakeem Nicks at 14/1.

By comparison if you were betting on the Super Bowl MVP prop at 5Dimes you could get Brady at +115, while Manning is listed at +175.

5Dimes has their own lengthy list of Super Bowl props, but with more than a week until kick-off they haven't posted odds for all of them yet. A few unique props that the oddsmakers at 5Dimes have come up with include the jersey number of the player that scores the first touchdown, the exact number of points the winning team wins by, props on pass interference penalties, touchdown passes, interceptions and third down conversions.

For the point differential props at 5Dimes you can wager on the Giants winning the game anywhere from one point to 29 points and the Patriots winning the anywhere from one point to 42 points. There's no way the Pats will win by 42 points, but if somehow to were to happen the prop would payout at +60000. Some odds on scores that could actually happen include New England winning by 3 at +655 and the Giants winning by 3 at +670.

We'll end our Super Bowl props search at TopBet where they're slowly posting more props on a daily basis leading up to the big game.

At TopBet they have their own section dedicated to “Super Bowl Fun Props.” Some of the wagers currently available in that section include the number of aircraft to do a flyover before the game with an over/under at 4.5, the color of lipstick sideline reported Michelle Tafoya will wear, with red favored at -150, will Al Michaels say the word “miracle” during the first quarter and will any cheerleader be knocked off her feet by game action?

If you're looking for more serious bets TopBet has a long list of those too. First scoring play odds favor a Patriots' touchdown at +200, the Patriots are favored at -125 as the first team to score, the

Giants are heavily favored as the first team to punt at -150, while surprisingly Ahmad Bradshaw is getting the best odds as the player to score the first touchdown at +300.
