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 longshots here, however, as a quarterback has won MVP in 31 of the 55 Super Bowls.

Matthew Stafford +100
Joe Burrow +225
Cooper Kupp +600
Aaron Donald +1,600

Exotic props

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

However, while Super Bowl exotic 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 to offer these kinds of markets.

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. The Over/Under for country star Mickey Guyton to sing the Super Bowl LVI national anthem is set at 104.5 seconds. 

Length of the national anthem in seconds

Result Odds
Over 104.5.5 seconds -120
Under 104.5 seconds -120

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
Heads -104
Tails -104

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.

Super Bowl 56 at SoFi Stadium in Los Angeles, California features a star-studded lineup of Dr. Dre, Eminem, Snoop Dogg, Mary J. Blige, and Kendrick Lamar.

Odds as of Feb. 11, 2022. 

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 and tops the odds boards once again for 2022.

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.

Some of the most notorious Super Bowl exotics include:

  • Will the game announcers reference the Super Bowl point spread?
  • Which brand will air the first commercial?
  • Who will the Super Bowl MVP thank first: team, family, fans, God?

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, this year bettors can find markets that pit Super Bowl results against Winter Olympics results.

What will be higher

Result Odds
Cooper Kupp total receptions at the Super Bowl LVI -175
USA Gold Medals at the 2022 Winter Olympic Games +145

Odds as of Feb. 3, 2022.

Tips for betting Super Bowl props

While Super Bowl props can be a lot of fun to bet, 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 2022 will be Feb. 3. 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. 3, 2022 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 they are not limited by state regulations or rules.

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.
