Super Bowl XLVII Prop Bets












Nearly one-third of U.S. adults are likely to bet on the big game with men outnumbering women who decide to put some cash on the line.  As of this posting, the Denver Broncos are favored by 2.5 points for Super Bowl 48 with an over/under of 27.5 total points.  But those are the boring bets.

A proposition bet, also known as a prop bet or a side bet, can be made two ways: on the occurrence (or not) during a game and on specific aspects of the pageantry surrounding the game. After odds for everything from who will be the MVP of the game, to what team will score first. Novelty props include the length of the national anthem to bets on what color gatorade will be dumped on the coach. You can bet on anything from whether or not the national anthem will run longer than 2 minutes, if the score will be tied at half time, basically anything.

What’s great about prop betting at your Super Bowl party is that it gets everyone engaged, interested and interactive with the game.

Sure you can just pick what team will win the game, but prop bets is where it’s at.

Let’s take a look at some of the best prop bets out there for Super Bowl XLVIII.


1. How many times will Peyton Manning say Omaha!: Bovada currently has the over/under on this at 27.5. That number seems low to me. Peyton said Omaha 44 times against the Ravens two weeks ago and then said it 31 times against the Patriots in the AFC title game. Is he trending down? Yes. But he raised a bunch of money for charity by saying it so many times against the Patriots that I have to think some more companies will offer more donations for him to say it during the Super Bowl and Peyton will go on an Omaha! yelling spree. Take the over.

2. What will be the lowest temperature during the game? Good question. It’s going to be cold, we know that much. Bovada has over 28 degrees Fahrenheit for even money and under 28 degrees at -140. At this writing, has the low for Sunday in East Rutherford, N.J. at 25 degrees with a chance of snow flurries. Sounds like a fun game to be at, right? Those expensive seats in the upper deck will be delightful. Money well spent! Take the under 28 degrees.

3. How long with the national anthem take? Opera singer Renee Fleming (we all are familiar with her work, right?) will sing the anthem this year. Bovada has the over (even)/under (-140) at 2 minutes 25 seconds. Opera singers usually take a long time singing anything because it seems they love the way they sound and want everyone to experience their sound for as long as possible. Take the over.

4. Coin toss … heads or tails? The Las Vegas Hotel has both tails and heads locked in at -103. We all know that tails never fails … until it comes up heads and you feel silly for believing in such a childish statement. Go heads. Why? Because heads never fails.

6. Which team will commit the first penalty? The Las Vegas Hotel has both teams set at -110. I’ve been able to look into the future and have already seen the first drive of the game. The Broncos won the toss (after calling heads) and chose to take the ball. They wanted to put points on the board right away and send a message. Peyton dropped back to pass on the third play of the game and a defender (I couldn’t spot which one) barely touched Peyton after he threw the ball. A flag flew high into the 25-degree air and a penalty for roughing the passer was called. Take the Seahawks. By the way, any declined penalty will not count. But since Peyton threw an incompletion on the play the Broncos accepted the penalty and went on their merry way. Did they score on the drive? I’m not allowed to say.

7. Will the first TD of the game be a passing TD or a running TD? The Las Vegas Hotel has a passing TD at -170 and a rushing TD at +150. Peyton likes the throw the ball a lot. Not sure if you’ve noticed that throughout his career. I’m feeling a pass interference early on and a 1-yard TD run by Knowshon Moreno.

8. Will any member of the Red Hot Chili Peppers be shirtless during their halftime performance? Bovada has this at even money for yes, -140 for no. If you’ve followed the Chili Peppers at all over the years you know they love to take their shirts off. It’s like they were born shirtless or something. Remember that time when they took the stage wearing just a sock on their, well, private area? While they won’t be on the stage long I think they find a way to take their shirts off. We’ll have another wardrobe malfunction and for weeks we’ll hear about how stuff like this isn’t good for children to see. We must protect the children!

9. Which song will Bruno Mars perform first? I don’t know any Bruno Mars songs at all. So it’s up to you to find the odds on this one and make your bets. Hopefully he just plays Red Hot Chili Peppers tunes.

10. Will the Virginia men’s hoops team have more first-half points (-4.5; -110) against Pitt on Sunday than Eric Decker will have yards on his longest reception (+4.5; -110)? If you’re betting on this it means you probably have issues. But that doesn’t make you a bad person. It actually makes you complex and likeable. We say go with … Virginia? Sure, why not? Go Virginia!

Super Bowl Fun Facts


The Super Bowl is the biggest sporting event in the United States, and each year it continues to get bigger, in scope, size, price and just about everything else. When it comes to watching the Super Bowl, nine out of 10 watchers are going to be at a home — either their house or someone else’s. That’s a lot of Super Bowl parties and if you are hosting one we got you covered with GameDay entertaining tips, recipes, party games, a list of prop bets you can wager on, and much more.

No matter how much we eat, it’s going to be quite a feast. In fact, the Super Bowl is the second highest day of food consumption in the United States after Thanksgiving. Get your jacket and scarf ready because Super Bowl Sunday is the most popular grilling day of winter with 62% of owners firing up the grill — even if it means they have to shovel a path to get to it.

It’s truly a worldwide event. Super Bowl XLVIII will be distributed to more than 185 countries and broadcast in 30 different languages. The average number of people at a Super Bowl party is 17, and only five percent of viewers will watch the game alone – while one out of every 12 people watching are just watching to see the commercials. So whether you will be cooking for 17 or for just one here is some great information to make your GameDay, one to remember.

The game is just a part of Super Bowl Sunday or any GameDay really. What’s more important is:  What you are going to do? Where you are going to do it?  and, What you are going to eat? Lets start things off with what you are going to eat. Sure there are hundreds of websites out there where you can get recipes for the big game and we know we are just one of them. We also know what we like to eat, and what is good.
