The Super Bowl is just under a week away and while many are looking for a great party with plenty to eat and drink gamblers tend to be looking for something with a little more action. While the game itself will be chock full of action with betting chances on the sides, totals, and even money lines, this game also presents another major opportunity. I'm talking about prop betting, where the Super Bowl has become known as the mecca of props with bets on varying degrees on the absurdity spectrum. Let's take a look at some of the favorites among the many wild and weird.
For those of you interested in the game of our four-legged friends you have the opportunity to parlay the winner of the Super Bowl with the winner of the 2019 Puppy Bowl. That's right, you can parlay the New England Patriots or Los Angeles Rams along with your favorite team Ruff or team Fluff. Get the most bark and bite out of your wagers with a little extra incentive on the Puppy Bowl.
We're All Going Streaking
Good for the person that spends 1,000's to get in the game only to drop his clothes and make his way to the field. And if streakers dodging people trying to escort them out is entertaining to you then you may want to try your hand at this prop. You can wager who will be the first person to touch the streaker when they reach the field. Surprisingly, a player is the favorite at +175, followed by security at +200, and coaches, refs and "other" rounding out the field. If you just want to wager on if there will be a streaker, the Yes on that prop is currently at +2000.
Outkast Reunion - Me and You
Big Boi is scheduled to be part of the Super Bowl halftime show. Given his start with group Outkast and their ties to Atlanta, the next logical question was whether he would be joined by Andre 3000. It's been a long time and the group still remains immensely popular. Yes is around +300 for those thinking a reunion is on the horizon.
Gambling Goes Mainstream
As sports betting continues to spread more and more across the US since the federal ban was repealed we are hearing more and more open talk on broadcast concerning the spread and total of games. This prop offers you the chance to wager on broadcasters Jim Nantz and Tony Romo mentioning the spread on the game during the broadcast. Gamblers want to hear about gambling and Yes is currently listed at +350.
We touched on a few above but that's not even the surface of the variety of props that are available for this game. The offshore industry especially is loaded with prop bets at various different shops. BetOnline, Bovada, Intertops and plenty others are loaded top to bottom with various things to bet on for the spectacle known as the Super Bowl. Intertops alone is offering clients over 400 prop bets to choose from and a generous Super Bowl bonus. So go forth punters and let your heart bet till content on who wins the coin toss, what color Gatorade is poured, and whether Adam Levine will start the halftime show in a hat or leather jacket.
