The Super Bowl is the spectacle of all spectacles when it comes to North American sports events, and this weekend means big business for Las Vegas and sports gambling websites. Super Bowl prop bets in particular have taken on a life of their own in recent years.
At Super Bowl 52, if you’d like to put some money down to raise the stakes and make the game more exciting—particularly if you’re not a fan of the New England Patriots or Philadelphia Eagles and don’t care which team wins—there are plenty of options for you.
Let’s say you bet $20 on the Patriots to beat the Eagles at the current -180 odds and they won their sixth championship since 2001. It would net you $11.11 in profit. Meanwhile, a $20 bet on a victorious Eagles team at +160 would put $32 extra in your pocket.
Or, if you prefer to be more creative (and are obsessed with colours), you could bet that Bill Belichick will wear a red shirt, the winning coach will have blue Gatorade dumped on his head, P!nk will have purple hair, and Justin Timberlake will perform the halftime show in yellow shoes. Now, the odds of those four things all happening are slim but if those hit on a parlay you’ll be seeing green because that $20 becomes $235,600.
See? Prop bets are where the fun really starts.
Our friends over at OddsShark have compiled a comprehensive list of props for Sunday’s big game if that sort of thing tickles your fancy.
If you’re unfamiliar with moneylines, it’s pretty simple. If something is listed at -150 it means you’d have to bet $150 to win $100 whereas something listed at +150 means a $100 bet would win you $150.
With that in mind, here are 52 prop bets to consider at Super Bowl 52.
