Weird Super Bowl Prop Bets Including Coach’s Nostrils To Puppy Bowl
Online sportsbooks are always offering random Super Bowl "prop bets" on all the craziness that surrounds the game. Several sites already have their lines up, and here are few highlights, plus one for the Puppy Bowl!
This is one they usually bet on every year. What color will the liquid be that is poured on the game-winning coach?
"Red" is the odds-on favorite at 1.6-to-1, which is roughly 39%. "Orange" is a very close second at 38%, followed by "Lime, Yellow, or Green" at 23%, "Clear / Water" at 13%, Blue at 11%, and Purple at 7%.
FYI, The percentages are the "implied probability", and they'll always add up to more than 100% because of the "bookmakers' edge."
Here is a new one just for these covid times, Which coach's nostrils will be seen first during the game? Clearly, this is mask-related and definitely not something that anyone would've considered in previous years.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers coach Bruce Arians is the better bet at 1-to-2, which is roughly 67%. Chiefs coach Andy Reid is at 3-to-2, or 40%.
Ok New Englanders, How many times will Bill Belichick and the New England Patriots are mentioned? The over/under on Belichick is 1, and the over/under on the Patriots is 2. Both of those seem really low, considering this is Tom Brady's first year away.
Here's another for our times now, Which will be higher, Brady's passing yards in Super Bowl 55 or GameStop's closing price on Friday? Brady's passing yards leads with a probability of 77.8%. GameStop has only a 30.8% chance of being higher.
Barring any more craziness, that makes sense. The price of GameStop closed yesterday at $90 even, an 81% drop from its peak at $483, and a 58% drop from its price of $218 on Friday evening so there's a decent chance it sinks further.
Will Brady attempt to high five an official, which the Internet has caught him doing from time-to-time? "No" is 1-to-15, or nearly 94%. "Yes" is 6-to-1 or 14.3%.
The Super Bowl Halftime Show is usually 12 to 13 minutes and features a MEDLEY of songs. How many songs will The Weeknd and any guests perform this year?
The line is at "8". There's a 67% chance it's over a 40% chance it's under.
Will the Weeknd have a wardrobe change in the middle of the halftime show? Yes: 80%, No: 29%. What about a "wardrobe malfunction"and not just with The Weeknd, anyone on-stage counts: Yes: 10%, No: 97.2%.
Will either kicker hit the upright or crossbar on a missed field goal or extra point attempt? Yes: 24%, No: 84%.
Here is one for the puppy lovers, Who will win the Puppy Bowl? Team "Fluff" is even, which has a 50% probability. Team "Ruff" has a slight edge at 58.3%.
And will the MVP be a male or female? We're still talking about the Puppy Bowl, obviously. Male: 57%. Female: 52%.
