Player props

NFL player prop odds are available for all NFL games, but these markets are massive for a high-profile event like the Super Bowl, allowing multiple ways to wager on the performance of just about every player on the field for the Chiefs and 49ers. At some sportsbooks, Super Bowl player props are more popular for bettors than in traditional betting markets.

Exotic props and fun Super Bowl prop bets

Exotic Super Bowl props, also known as novelty props are a favorite with all fans, allowing you to bet not just on the game but the event that is Super Bowl Sunday. Novelty props are often not graded by what’s in the box score or even what happens on the football field.

However, while Super Bowl novelty props are extremely popular, they’re not available in all regions. Online-based sportsbooks will offer the largest – and wildest – menu of exotics, while books regulated state-by-state may be limited or prohibited from offering these kinds of markets.

The Gatorade bath

A Super Bowl tradition is also one of its most popular exotic props, with online sportsbooks offering odds on the color of the Gatorade bath given to the winning coach of the Super Bowl.

Orange has been the most popular color over the years, but blue has been used for the last two Super Bowls.

Color Odds
Purple +275
Blue +450
Yellow/Green/Lime +425
Orange +350
Red/Pink +350
Clear/Water +1200
No Gatorade Bath +160>

The coin toss

Betting on the Super Bowl coin toss is a hugely popular prop and is offered at every sportsbook during the Big Game. The most common way to bet the coin toss is simply picking which side is the winning side of the flip: Head or Tails?

There’s not much handicapping or research you can do for this prop pick, as a coin toss has a 50/50 chance of landing on your side of choice.

Result Odds
49ers San Francisco 49ers +100
Chiefs Kansas City Chiefs +100

Taylor Swift props

With the Kansas City Chiefs back in the Super Bowl, there will be a lot of eyes on Travis Kelce and his superstar girlfriend Taylor Swift. Bookmakers will be sure to cook up some fun novelty market for Taylor Swift props along with markets on the rest of the Kelce family.

Will Travis Kelce propose to Taylor Swift?

Result Odds
Yes +1060
No -3000

National anthem

Before the ball is even snapped, you can bet on the national anthem Super Bowl prop. The most popular way to wager on the singing of “The Star-Spangled Banner” is the length.

Sportsbooks post an Over/Under length for the time it will take the singer to sing the national anthem, and you can bet on whether the singer will go Over or Under that time during their performance. Reba McEntire will be signing the anthem for Super Bowl 58, and here, current odds totals suggest one of the shortest National Anthems in modern Super Bowl history.

Result Opening Odds Current Totals Odds
Over 84.5 (-130) 90.5 +102
Under 84.5 (-110) 90.5 -128

Halftime show props

Just because the action on the field is taking a break doesn’t mean prop betting has to. The Super Bowl halftime show has spawned a massive menu of exotic prop options over the years, with online sportsbooks having a lot of fun with the featured performers.

This year, with Usher performing, bettors will be betting on what his first song of the night will be!

Result Odds
Over 8.5 songs -125
Under 8.5 songs -125

Other/Exotic props

Exotic Super Bowl props are only limited by the imagination of online oddsmakers. These wild and fun-loving markets have exploded over the past decade, covering everything from those infamous Super Bowl commercials to who the MVP will thank first.

Cross-sport props

If betting on just events at the Super Bowl isn't enough, bettors and bet on cross-sports Super Bowl props. For example, last year, bettors found markets that pit Super Bowl results against the Winter Olympics results.

Every year Covers releases a  Super Bowl prop bet sheet featuring some of the most popular markets for the big game. We then provide live updates on the bets on twitter @ Covers.

Super Bowl MVP

Betting on who will win Super Bowl MVP is one of the most popular and simple player props on Super Sunday. Skill positions and star players are normally among the favorites, including the starting quarterbacks for both teams. 

Be careful when taking long shots here, however, as a quarterback has won MVP in 32 of the 57 Super Bowls.

Tips for betting Super Bowl props

While Super Bowl props can be a lot of fun to bet on, you should have a strategy and follow these tips to make sure you end up in the Big Game black:

Money Icon Build a narrative

Chances are if you’re betting Super Bowl props, you likely have a wager on the point spread or total. Use those wagers to build a narrative around how you see the game playing out and what each team has to do to get to that projected result.

Avoid Contradictions Avoid contradictions

With so many Super Bowl bets available, it’s easy to get your action tangled up. Make sure you’re not betting against yourself by contradicting previous wagers. If you like the Over, don’t bet on the Under when it comes to scoring or passing props. If you like the underdog to cover the spread, don’t bet on the favorite to go Over their yardage props.

Line Movement Mind the movement

Betting on props was long considered a “square” market for many years. However, with the rapid expansion in prop offerings as well as the explosion in advanced analytics, more and more sharp bettors and professional gamblers are flocking to the opening prop odds.

If you’re trying to get the best of the numbers, pay attention to the early prop odds movement in the 12 to 24 hours after sportsbooks release these markets. Bookmakers will adjust quickly to these early sharp opinions. If you’re waiting until Super Sunday to get your prop bets down, you’re likely to get the worst of the number.

Look Beyond Shop for props

Sportsbooks up their available prop markets every February with more and more Big Game betting options. Plenty of these props are the same, in terms of format, but the totals and juice/vig attached to them can vary from book to book. If you have multiple sportsbooks available to you, don’t be afraid to shop around for the best return on your prop betting opinions.

When are Super Bowl prop bets released?

Some Super Bowl prop bets, like basic game props and team props that are based on derivative markets, will be released in the 24 hours after the AFC and NFC champions are crowned. The first batch of player props are usually released on the Thursday of the first Super Bowl week — which in 2023 will be Feb. 2. This is the traditional “Las Vegas Super Bowl props day”, where sportsbooks release hundreds of player props and sharp bettors line up to take advantage of the value found in early numbers. 

However, it’s very possible that online betting sites like FanDuel and DraftKings release player props earlier than Feb. 2, 2023, as they race to be the first to market. We’ll be updating this page and our player props page with live odds, picks, and analysis as soon as they are available.

When do Super Bowl prop bets get paid out?

Depending on what they’re based on, Super Bowl prop bets can be graded and paid out either throughout the game or at the end of the game. The timing and promptness of payouts for Super Bowl bets depend on the sportsbook.

What are the best betting sites for Super Bowl prop bets?

Most Super Bowl betting sites have a large menu of Super Bowl prop bets. However, online-based books will offer more in the way of specials and exotics because state regulations or rules do not limit them.

Instant replay: Super Bowl prop bets

While subjective, Super Bowl proposition bets (props) have nearly eclipsed commercials as the most fun and engaging part of the telecast. These entertaining alternatives to the standard odds markets can boost your winnings and maybe morale, too. Here are our keys to the props betting game:

  • Great way to diversify your bets, spreading action to different parts of the contest.
  • Take your pick from the most commonly available: player, game, and exotic props.
  • Make sure you’re not betting against yourself. If you like the Over, don’t bet on the Under when it comes to scoring or passing props.
