Super Bowl Prop Bets

Super Bowl Prop Bets

The Super Bowl is one of the superlative sporting events of the year, and one of the most popular events to bet on. Whether you’re an experienced high roller, or a first time bettor trying to learn more about wagering on sports, Super Bowl prop bets are an entertaining way to get into the game.

What are prop bets? They are also known as a proposition bets, and sportsbooks created them to give people more options than just a bet on whether your team will win or lose. These kinds of bets can range from betting on which player will be the first to get a touchdown, to what color the Gatorade that’s tossed on the winning team’s head coach will be. With the growing popularity of these fun bets, sports betting companies have stacked their boards with hundreds of options for Super Bowl bettors.

Super Bowl Prop Bets Examples

To show you some of the many types of wagers you can make for this legendary game, we’ve pulled up some of the prop bets that we offered during the Super Bowl 50 game between the Denver Broncos and the Carolina Panthers. The Broncos went on to win that game 24-10 and Von Miller was named the Super Bowl MVP. But the betting options go far beyond putting down some money on who will win MVP. Will Cam Newton propose to his girlfriend after the game? What color will Beyonce’s shoes be? Will the singing of the National Anthem go over the two minute mark? You don’t have to know a single thing about the football game to throw down a few bucks on these wild props.
