NFL Super Bowl LVII: The Best Wacky Prop Bets

We know that the Super Bowl is the mecca of NFL prop bets, but over the years, if you can dream up a potential wager, chances are you can lay money on it during the big game this Sunday.

Sure, we all know you can choose the Super Bowl MVP, who the first touchdown scorer will be, and how many touchdowns Jalen Hurts and Patrick Mahomes will throw for. But this Sunday, the betting action can start before the game even begins and lasts until the very end.

Here’s our look at some of the most unique NFL Super Bowl prop bets offered for the Kansas City Chiefs vs. Philadelphia Eagles matchup.

Wacky Super Bowl Prop: Length of the National Anthem

Country music star Chris Stapleton will be singing the national anthem this year. One of the more popular Super Bowl props is betting whether the total amount of time it takes to sing “The Star Spangled Banner” goes over or under the number set by oddsmakers.

As of now, there have not been any spoilers for the song, as State Farm Stadium may have its roof closed for rehearsals. Two years ago in Tampa, Florida, local television news reporter Zach Maskavich was in his car working on a story in the parking lot of Raymond James Stadium when he heard Jazmine Sullivan and Eric Church’s rehearsal.

The result was a flood of betting on the over of 1:59, and many sportsbooks took the bet off the board. The actual singing of the anthem that counted was 2:17, so right in line from the rehearsal.

FanDuel has this year’s over-under total set at 1:59. The actual time has been under that number in three of the last five. Prior to that, however, there were five consecutive anthems that were over 2:03 in length.

Wacky Super Bowl Prop: Coin Toss Trend

Yes–you can bet on the result of the coin toss. But in looking at the bet on DraftKings, the moneyline on both heads and tails is -104. There’s not much value in that true 50-50 bet, but what you should pay attention to is the following statistic.

That’s right: the winner of the coin toss has lost the last eight Super Bowl games. There doesn’t seem to be a logical correlation between the two events, as a handful of favorites and underdogs are included on this list. But, a trend is a trend, and you’re probably better off placing a moneyline bet with the odds being so close instead of wagering on the coin toss itself anyway!

NFL Super Bowl Prop Bet: What the Heck Is Scorigami?

Scorigami is the term coined by the Twitter account of the same name. It occurs when there’s a final score that has never happened before in NFL history.

This season, Scorigami happened three times. Week 4 with Seattle vs. Detroit (48-45), Week 13’s Dallas vs. Indianapolis matchup (54-19), and Week 16 with Cincinnati beating New England 22-18.

Scorigami has also occurred three times in Super Bowl history.

With all three of these games seeing Denver on the losing end, perhaps that’s a bet for no Scorigami. Either way, it’s highly unlikely, but you can wager whether there will be Scorigami in this Super Bowl at all major betting sites like Caesars Sportsbook. Odds for No Scorigami are +2000; Yes Scorigami is at -10000.

NFL Super Bowl Prop Bet: Color of the Gatorade Used in the Bath

Since 2001, the winning head coach at the Super Bowl has taken a Gatorade bath. With its variety of colors, it’s only natural that a prop bet was created for this event.

When the Chiefs won the Super Bowl in 2020, orange Gatorade was dumped on head coach Andy Reid.

Since 2001, orange also leads the pack with five dumpings. Tied at four are clear (water), blue, and none. Yellow has been used three times, purple twice, and red/pink is still waiting for its first victim.

Here are the odds for the Gatorade bath color at BetMGM.

COLOR OF GATORADEODDS TO WIN
Orange+250
Yellow/Green+350
Clear/Water+600
Blue+600
Red/Pink+650
Purple+900
None+1700

Despite hitting four times since 2001, Bill Belichick missed out on being bathed in three of those occasions. The other was John Harbaugh after Baltimore beat San Francisco in 2013. Clear/water hasn’t hit since 2008. Three of the last four were blue, but the Chiefs had orange when they won three years ago. In the NFC championship, Eagles head coach Nick Sirianni got a yellow bath, so that’s why orange and yellow/green are the two favorites.
