Winning the Super Bowl is the goal of every NFL coach, and entrance into this elite club of champions is celebrated with the Gatorade bath – a surprise baptism of icy, colored sports drink. Not only has this tradition become a staple of Super Bowl Sunday, but betting on the Gatorade bath color is one of the most popular props available. 

Two years ago, Kansas City Chiefs coach Andy Reid got bathed in orange, which was the early favorite for Super Bowl 57, where the Chiefs face the Philadelphia Eagles.

Super Bowl 57 Gatorade color analysis

When it comes to betting on any props we always stress shopping around for the best lines and this matters even more to these markets which can vary wildly depending on the book. This is the sort of bet where you ideally don't want to grab anything at below +300 since there are so many legitimate options (unless there is a leak of which color will be on the sidelines in which case the steam will be obvious). 

The best options are orange or blue, but try to see which one you can grab at the better payout. Orange is the favorite at many books which makes sense because not only did Andy Reid get an orange shower when the Chiefs won the Super Bowl in 2020, but it has also been the most popular color used this century. However, blue has been the color of choice in three of the last four years and "Cool Blue" was the most popular flavor sold in the US when a study was done in late 2020.

Lemon-lime (yellow) is also a highly popular flavor, and when the Eagles previously won in 2018 that was the color dumped on former coach Doug Pederson. However, that was the only time it's been used in the last 13 years, so unless you're getting +600 or more it doesn't appear worthwhile. I'm also fading clear/water which is installed in the range of +400 to +500 at most books. Clear was the color of the Gatorade bath in four-straight years from 2006-09 but hasn't been used since.

What color was the Gatorade in the last Super Bowl?

Last year, the Las Angeles Rams won Super Bowl LVI dumped blue Gatorade on head coach Sean McVay.

Super Bowl Gatorade bath betting explained

The Super Bowl Gatorade bath is a fun Big Game tradition that’s decades old and has sparked one of the most unique exotic prop bets in all of sports, allowing you to bet on the color of the Gatorade bath.

What is the Super Bowl Gatorade bath?

The Gatorade bath – or Gatorade shower as it’s also known – usually comes towards the end of the game when the result is all but official or after the final whistle blows and a Super Bowl winner is crowned.

Players grab a cooler full of Gatorade (or water) and ambush their coach on the sideline with a freezing shower of ice cubes and colorful sports drink. This fun moment contrasts the stressfulness and seriousness head coaches carry into the Super Bowl and kicks off the postgame celebrations.

Super Bowl Gatorade bath prop bets

Gatorade bath bets are among the number of exotic Super Bowl props set for the annual NFL championship game. Unlike most Super Bowl odds, this prop isn’t directly tied to the results on the field and is graded outside of the box score, much like the coin toss, the length of the national anthem, or halftime show props. The Gatorade bath is often captured by the TV broadcast and graded based on that image.

Color Number of times it's been used
Orange 5
Blue 4
Clear 4
Yellow 3
Purple 3
None 4

Most Super Bowl betting sites will offer Gatorade bath props for the Super Bowl, as well as other exotics around the national anthem or halftime show.

However, most state-regulated sportsbooks are not authorized to offer odds on the color of the Gatorade bath, including operators in Nevada, due to the unofficial grading of this prop bet.

That said, New Jersey and Indiana sportsbooks received permission to offer prop betting on the color of the Gatorade bath for the first time for Super Bowl LIV.

How to bet on the Gatorade bath

Along with other Super Bowl odds, it's important to learn how to bet on Super Bowl prop markets. For Gatorade props, sportsbooks set odds on the color of the Super Bowl Gatorade bath, basing those potential returns on trends from past Super Bowls, team colorways, and popular colors of Gatorade. The list includes all available colors of Gatorade as well as Water/Clear.  

These odds are most often set in moneyline formats, such as Orange +200. This means for every $10 you wager you could win $20 if Orange is the color of the Gatorade bath (a $100 bet would win $200).

The favored team to win the Super Bowl often sees its team colors higher up on the Gatorade bath odds board, due to the fact that it has a higher probability of winning the game and delivering the ceremonial soaking.

Gatorade color prop

Oddsmakers will often set colors associated with the competing Super Bowl teams among the favorite colors for the bath as well as place Water/Clear near the top of the board since they know that every team will always have coolers filled with water on the sideline.

Popular color flavors like Orange, Blue, and Yellow/Green are also often among the shorter odds available. Colors and odds will vary from sportsbook to sportsbook based on the oddsmakers’ opinion and betting handle.

Warning: Don’t slip on fake news

Let us revisit the grape, err great, purple Gatorade prop betting fiasco of 2020. Betting on which color of Gatorade will shower the winning coach is one of the most popular Super Bowl prop bets out there. It is a slippery, yet entertaining slope for bettors to ride. The wager — and color purple — garnered added attention last year, with heavy steam pouring in as a tribute to Kobe Bryant following his tragic death. Orange turned out to be the color of choice, resulting in many bettors taking a proverbial bath due to the outcome.

Super bowl Gatorade color history

The Gatorade bath began in the 1980s and quickly became one of the most lighthearted moments of Super Bowl Sunday. But it wasn’t until the boom in online sports betting during the late 90s that betting on the color of the Gatorade bath became popular.

Going back to 2001, Orange is the weapon of choice for Super Bowl-winning teams, being used five times as the Gatorade bath, followed by Clear (4), Yellow (4), Blue (3), and Purple (2). Four head coaches have come out bone dry without a Gatorade bath in that time frame.

Gatorade bath betting rules

The Gatorade bath betting rules will depend on the individual book and how it's grading this exotic prop. As some winning coaches are subjected to multiple baths, sportsbooks may stipulate or grade the correct color on the first bath or they may pay out both colors used.

There have been instances in which no bath was given, and some books offer this as a betting option. However, if no Gatorade bath takes place and it wasn’t an option on the odds board, it is up to the book to either grade this prop no action and refund all bets or grade all bets as losers. 

As this is a Super Bowl bet that isn’t defined in the box score, the grading and ruling on this prop is subject to whatever the TV broadcast shows or what is captured by photographers.
