If you saved your stimulus cash and did not make investments all of it in shares of early-2000’s mall shops, excellent news — you may blow all of it on ridiculous Super Bowl 55 bets! We’ve already highlighted a number of the wildest national anthem, halftime show, and game broadcast props; now we’ll have a look at a number of the extra random bets — typically known as “exotic bets” or “specials” on numerous betting web sites — together with these accessible on the opening coin toss, the commercials, and the color of Gatorade that might be dumped on the successful coach.
Sounds silly? Well, the Super Bowl is an unofficial vacation right here in America, and after the yr we have all simply had, we’re gonna embrace the silly.
Keep in thoughts, a few of these bets might be controversial, particularly the Gatorade color, so be ready to combat it out along with your sportsbook if something is in query. Nothing says 2021 like writing an e-mail to some shady on-line betting web site debating whether or not it was orange or yellow Gatorade practically giving poor Andy Reid or Bruce Arians a coronary heart assault come Sunday night time round 10:45 p.m. ET.
Super Bowl coin toss prop bets
What will the coin toss land on:
Six of the past seven Super Bowl coin tosses have been tails. That comes after there have been 5 straight heads from 2009-’13. It’s doable heads is due; it is also doable that tails has actually figured one thing out and is on a roll. Yet another choice is that it is a literal f’ing coin flip, and betting on it’s ridiculous. But that is a part of the enjoyable of Super Bowl Sunday, so our recommendation is to toss a coin your self and no matter it lands on, do the other.
You may also wager on what the Chiefs will name for the coin toss (tails is the slight favourite) and whether or not their name might be right (similar odds for each). If you really need to go for the massive rating, parlay all three. You might even throw within the subsequent one, which is a digital lock.
If the Chiefs win the coin toss, the selection might be:
Well, then…that is fairly overwhelming. The Chiefs chose to defer all eight times they won coin toss this yr, so the lengthy odds for “receive” aren’t with out benefit, however what if…? Yeah, they’re going to most likely defer. Of course, betting one thing at -2500 would not actually make a lot sense until you are keen to put some huge cash on it or it is a part of a parlay, so it is extra enjoyable to put a small sum of money on “receive” and hope Gamblin’ Andy has one thing up his sleeve.
If Bucs win the toss, the selection might be:
The Bucs deferred the first six times they won coin tosses this yr, however they selected to obtain after their previous two coin-toss wins. It’s value noting that each of these decisions to obtain got here towards unhealthy cross defenses (Detroit in Week 16, Atlanta in Week 17), so maybe Tampa noticed a possibility to leap out to an early lead and make the underdogs play from behind. Chances are they may select to defer within the Super Bowl, however the reality you are getting plus cash on “receive” makes it the extra engaging wager given Tampa’s current development.
Will the group that wins the coin toss win the sport?
Teams that win the coin toss are 24-30 in Super Bowl history. That contains an 0-6 mark prior to now six Super Bowls and a 3-7 mark prior to now 10. Does that basically imply something for this Super Bowl? Probably not, which is why the chances are even right here.
Super Bowl commercials prop bets
Which Anheuser-Busch model industrial will air first?
- Bud Light +120
- Bud Light Seltzer Lemonade +175
- Michelob Ultra +175
- Michelob Ultra Organic Seltzer +200
Bud Light Seltzer Lemonade has already released its Super Bowl commercial, and it is precisely the kind that may get performed early within the sport. Michelob Ultra’s looks as if a later-game commercial (Tribe Called Quest is nice music for when issues are winding down, in spite of everything). Michelob Ultra Organic Seltzer went all out for its commercial, so it is not a nasty choose because it has the longest odds, nevertheless it nonetheless would not fairly appear higher than the Lemonade spot. The Bud Light ad is the favourite for a purpose, because it has all the weather of a “first commercial break” industrial, in order that’s most likely most likely the very best wager, however the Lemonade is a powerful contender and would web you more cash when you win.
How many commercials may have a canine in them?
- Over 4.5 -250
- Under 4.5 +170
People do love canine, however plus cash on up to 4 commercials with canine seems like the higher worth right here. Of course, these odds aren’t set randomly, so perhaps there’s no less than 5 which have already been launched. I have not watched all of them, so earlier than you make this wager, watch as many as you can. For what it is value, I distinctly keep in mind two — this Tide ad and this Dawn ad.
How many commercials will present an individual sporting a masks?
- Over 2.5 -450
- Under 2.5 +275
I solely keep in mind seeing one pre-released Super Bowl industrial that has masks, this Ford ad, so clearly firms are going for a way of normalcy with their spots. That mentioned, there wants to be simply two extra for the OVER to hit right here, so there is a first rate shot it does. The higher payout on the UNDER makes it tempting, although, so we lean that means.
Will an M&M Spokescandy be sporting a masks?
I imply, I hope not. Pretty positive speaking items of sweet are immune from COVID (and each different illness). The excellent news is even when that occurs, it would not depend towards the final prop since that one particularly says “person” sporting a masks. This could possibly be one you will have to combat your sportsbook over.
Who will communicate first in Frito-Lay’s pregame industrial?
- Peyton Manning -200
- Eli Manning +160
Will Jerry Rice make a paper soccer area aim in Frito-Lay’s industrial?
If these are nonetheless on the board, leap on them. That commercial has already been released, and Peyton talks first and Rice makes the sphere aim. Important observe: Rice is “kicking” Doritos, not paper footballs, so who is aware of how that impacts issues. Unless there’s one other Frito’s industrial that is coming with Rice really utilizing paper footballs, this one is a wrap.
Will there be a COVID vaccine industrial?
There could be a industrial that mentions COVID vaccines, however one particularly about it? Seems unlikely. After all, that is sort of a product that sells itself to these , which is the overwhelming majority of America.
Total variety of commercials aired in the course of the Super Bowl:
- Over 92.5 -125
- Under 92.5 -115
Over the previous 18 Super Bowls, a mean of 88.4 commercials have aired. Last yr was the second lowest total in the span (77), and over the previous 5 years, the typical is 90.4. Keep in thoughts, although, Super Bowl 51, the one extra time sport in Super Bowl historical past, occurred in that span and featured 102 commercials. However, regardless that the UNDER seems like a very good play based mostly on all these stats, it is essential to the do not forget that the NFL is trying to make up main misplaced income from this previous season, and that might imply extra commercials. This is mainly a toss-up, and because you get barely higher worth with the UNDER, it is smart to take it. Just hope there is not any extra time.
Super Bowl Gatorade shower prop bets
Color of liquid poured on the successful coach:
- Orange +110
- Red/pink +300
- Yellow/Lime//Green +450
- Blue +500
- Clear +600
- Purple +900
Since 2001, here’s what the color of “liquid” poured on the winning coach has been: Orange (5), None (5), Clear (4), Yellow (3), Blue (2), Purple (1). That sort of makes you surprise why “red/pink” has the second-best odds, proper? Last yr, the color was orange for the Chiefs, so maybe that is a very good wager once more when you assume the Chiefs will win. Based on these numbers, although, “clear” would appear to have probably the most worth. Either means, this can be a ridiculous wager, and if the sport is in query underneath the ultimate seconds, you probably will not get a Gatorade shower in any respect, sadly.
What gamers will pour Gatorade on the successful coach?
- Defensive -150
- Offensive +150
- Both +200
For the Chiefs, this seems like it will likely be a Travis Kelce factor (prefer it was final yr with an offensive lineman), however in fact it can rely upon which unit is on the sphere. For the Bucs, there is a good probability Gronk might be concerned. The worth is with “offensive players,” in order that wager is smart.
Super Bowl postgame, MVP speech prop bets
Who will the MVP refer to first in his speech?
- Teammates +100
- God/faith +225
- USA +700
- Winning City +700
- Family +900
- Coaches +1000
- Team Owner +2000
“Winning city” is an attention-grabbing wager right here, as any Tampa participant is more likely to say it as a result of the sport is being performed in Tampa. That mentioned, “teammates” and “God/religion” are at all times robust prospects. Of course, when you go along with the concept that both Patrick Mahomes or Tom Brady has finest probability of successful the award, then Brady might simply point out “family” first and Mahomes simply might, too, since he is about to get married and have his first youngster. Still, “winning city” stands out as having the very best mixture of worth and potential.
Will MVP say “Disney” in Speech?
This seems like a straightforward “no.” The complete “I’m going to Disneyworld” factor is often one thing that is mentioned on the sphere for a recorded industrial, not mentioned in the course of the speech. Travis Kelce seems like somebody who would possibly say it, although, so when you wager “yes,” hope he wins MVP.
Will “Burger” be mentioned by Andy Reid?
This is in reference to Andy Reid having beforehand celebrated huge Chiefs wins, together with final yr’s Super Bowl, by consuming a burger. He’s already said he’ll do the same this year. So, if the Chiefs win, you may financial institution on him saying “burger” in some unspecified time in the future. The drawback with this prop is you do not know when it cuts off. Does it have to be on the rostrum in the course of the official trophy presentation? If that is the case, he most likely will not. Last yr, he mentioned it on the NFL Network’s prolonged post-game present. Also, if the Chiefs lose, he clearly will not say it at any level. There’s a purpose “no” is the overwhelming favourite right here, however let’s face it — it is extra enjoyable to wager “yes” and hope the person’s culinary urges overtake him.
Will any participant suggest to his girlfriend on the sphere after the sport?
Oh, come on — imagine in love, folks! There has to be no less than one participant with a long-term girlfriend who’s prepared to pop the query after a giant win. Will it occur? Probably not, however “yes” has a giant payoff and Valentine’s Day is true across the nook.
Will Joe Biden name to congratulate the successful coach?
The Super Bowl and all it is post-game festivities probably will not finish till previous midnight. That’s properly previous President Biden’s bedtime. The worth is on “no,” and that looks as if the higher wager on the whole.
