The annual onslaught of Super Bowl prop bets have hit sportsbooks monitored by OddsShark.com ahead of the big game on Sunday night.
There are hundreds of Super Bowl prop bets available covering every angle of the action as the New England Patriots take on the Philadelphia Eagles as 4.5-point favourites. Television junkies can also get in on the action, with an eclectic variety of Super Bowl exotic prop bets that focus on the broadcast of this year’s big game.
This year marks the second time these teams have clashed on Super Sunday. The Patriots eked out a 24-21 win over Philadelphia as 7-point favourites in Super Bowl XXXIX, a game which is expected to get plenty of television attention on Sunday night.
The odds of OVER 2.5 clips from that matchup getting broadcast sit at -120, while former Eagles pivot Donovan McNabb’s alleged vomiting incident at Super Bowl XXXIX is a +170 bet to get mentioned.
Terrell Owens turned in an impressive 122-yard receiving performance that day despite suffering a broken leg and badly injured ankle just weeks earlier. However, the outspoken six-time Pro Bowler is a long +150 bet to be acknowledged on the air on Sunday.
The iconic Rocky statue, located on the steps of the Philadelphia Museum of Art, was taken over as a rallying point by visiting Vikings fans prior to this year’s NFC Championship Game, and is a -150 bet to be shown at least once during the Super Bowl television broadcast.
Sunday’s matchup at US Bank Stadium in Minneapolis also marks the sixth time in the past eight years that the Super Bowl has been played indoors. The mercury is forecast to dip to a frigid -18 C outside the stadium and is expected to be a topic of conversation among the commentators calling the game, with the odds of the outdoor temperature getting mentioned more than once pegged at -140.
U.S. President Donald Trump effectively stole the headlines with his State of the Union address on Tuesday night. Trump famously engaged in a war of words with NFL players and owners over national anthem protests earlier this season. The president made clear references to the national anthem in Tuesday’s speech and is a -150 bet to be mentioned on air during the Super Bowl 52 broadcast.
While Trump has not targeted the NFL on his Twitter feed since November, he is expected to have his phone at the ready on game day, and is listed as a -140 wager on the Super Bowl LII exotic props to send OVER five tweets on Super Sunday.
