Wagering is serious business, but that doesn’t mean oddsmakers don’t like to have a little fun, and they prove it with these wacky Super Bowl prop bets. It seems there is no end to the creativity of some of these side wagers.
Most of them come from overseas sportsbooks, where they don’t have any regulations on what they can offer. Sites likes Bovada, BetOnline, and MyBookie all have wacky Super Bowl prop bets.
We take a look at some of them below, and promise you they really do exist.
Gatorade Dumping Part of Wacky Super Bowl Prop Bets
Will a Fan Run Onto the Field During Game?
Yes +650, No -1400
We at OG News are not advocating breaking the law, but if someone happened to make this wager with Bovada they could ensure it would pay. All they would have to do is get down to the field level, jump over a wall, get past security guards, police, and possibly secret service agents (If President Trump shows up), and make it onto the playing field. The bet should be a sizable one, though to pay the legal costs.
Color of Gatorade Dumped on Winning Coach
Purple started out as the longshot at +1800, but has moved to -140 on BetOnline. That is because a rumor got out that both teams were planning on having purple Gatorade on the sidelines as a tribute to Kobe Bryant, who was killed in a helicopter crash last Sunday. It hasn’t been verified, but people are betting on purple like crazy, driving the odds down from the longshot to the favorite.
Will Jennifer Lopez Show Butt Cleavage at Halftime Show?
Yes +500, No -1000
This is more wishful thinking on my part, and I would like to believe the oddsmakers at Bovada did this for me. The chances of J-Lo performing in a thong, though, are pretty remote. The NFL wants to have as wholesome a halftime show as possible after the Janet Jackson debacle. But a man can dream, can’t he?
Slightly Calmer Wagers, but Still Crazy
What Will Happen to Price Of Bitcoin During The Super Bowl?
Higher Value -135, Lesser Value -105
Bovada put this Super Bowl prop bet out, but who knew people even used Bitcoin anymore. It was a fade a few years ago, but now it seems the only ones still utilizing the cryptocurrency are hackers and terrorists.
Will KC Coach Andy Reid Eat Cheeseburger Before End of Game?
Yes +1200, No -7500
This is the perfect opportunity for the Kansas City coach to pad his salary, courtesy of Bovada. Reid could grab a cheeseburger at Sonic, which is less than a mile from the stadium, and put it in his pocket. Whip that out with the wrapper visible to the television cameras, and take a bite. Sponsorship dollars for the Kansas City head coach, and a great payout for this prop bet. Total win-win.
Will Player Propose to Girlfriend on Field After Game?
Yes +500, No -900
It has never happened in a Super Bowl, and I don’t see it happening now. It seems more like a college thing, as it has happened a couple of times in bowl games. Besides professional football players are too busy telling the cameras they are going to Disney World.
