The Super Bowl is always the prime event for sports gambling, and that’s not an understatement.

What other sporting event will you have parents of Boy Scouts at your work trying to get you to throw down on some squares or Margaret from accounting asking you if you want to join the Pick ‘Em Pool?

They’re not doing it for a Week 11 matchup, I can tell you that much.

One of my favorite parts about Super Bowl betting are the prop bets. Granted, I’ve never invested serious coin on any of them, but they’re still a good time to look at, and something that my wife can maybe have a vested interest in instead of the commercials.

Here are some of my favorite lines according to Odds Shark, and the beauty of them is that they’re all open for interpretation and you can make your case to bet either way.

Super Bowl 52 Coin Toss Odds at Bovada

Heads -105

Tails -105

No joke, my suitemate freshman year at Michigan State bet $100 on the coin flip of the Monday Night Football game every single week. His argument was that there was no other place to get such good odds, and I don’t think I can blame him. Ironically enough, he finished the year dead even.

In my ~expert~ opinion here, give me tails. Call it a hunch.

Will Pink say “Eagles” Before, During, or After The National Anthem?

Yes +110

No -150

Everybody and their mother knows that Pink was born in Doylestown, PA on a brisk September day in 1979 and was a graduate of Central Bucks High School West (Go Bucks!).

I could very easily see Pink blurting out a “Go Eagles!” at the end of what’s sure to be a rousing rendition of the anthem.

Give me Yes at +110 all day long.

How Many Times Will Gisele Bundchen Be Mentioned During The Broadcast?

Over 1.5 +150

Under 1.5 -200

So this one is a little complicated and has many ex-factors. I’m betting the over here simply because I think the Patriots are going to take it home. If I’m seriously betting this bad boy, I might consider laying a parlay down that throws the Pats as the winners, too, to sweeten the pot because if the Patriots win, I think the over looks pretty damn good. Improved odds if Brady takes home the MVP (-125 right now).

Over 1.5.

Who Will The Super Bowl MVP Mention First In His Speech?

Teammates +200

God +400

City +500

Coach +700

Owner +1000

Family +2000

Does Not Mention Any of the Above +190

Tough one. Probably one of the most difficult to look at. I guess the complication here would be does Jesus Christ count as God? Because I feel like I could see an MVP saying “I want to thank Jesus Christ” first, and now you’re getting into a whole theological debate that quite frankly, as someone who is Jewish, I don’t think I can contribute to.

Give me Teammates +200.

Will Any Members of NSYNC Perform with Justin Timberlake?

Yes +200

No -300

Yes. They don’t have anything else going on, and Destiny’s Child did it.

Yes +200 as a layup.

What Color Will The Gatorade Be That Is Poured On The Game-Winning Coach?

Lime/Green/Yellow +225

Orange +250

Red +275

Clear/Water +375

Blue +1000

Purple +1000

Just by odds here, I might have to go with Clear/Water +375. Not only do you have water as an option, Mixed Berry G2, Ice Punch, Watermelon Strawberry G2, and Glacier Cherry are all varieties of Gatorade that are clear or clear-ish.

I’m taking Clear/Water +375 here.


There you have it. Don’t come at me if purple Gatorade gets thrown on Belichick or Pederson and you lose a shit ton of money. That’s on you.
