When it comes to the Super Bowl, you know it’s not just about the game. There’s a whole world of wild bets out there, and they’re not your usual run-of-the-mill wagers. We’re talking about the unique Super Bowl prop bets that add an extra layer of fun to the whole Super Bowl experience. Super Bowl 58 is no exception, and sportsbooks are rolling out a bunch of these outlandish bets for the clash between the Kansas City Chiefs and the San Francisco 49ers.
So, buckle up because we’re about to dive into some of the weirdest prop bets you’ll find at the 2024 Super Bowl. Get ready for a ride that has nothing to do with typical NFL bets like spreads, moneylines, or player props.
Coin Toss: Heads or Tails?
Let’s start simple – the coin toss. Yeah, you heard it right. Before the game even kicks off, you can bet on whether the coin will land on heads or tails. It’s a 50-50 shot, making it one of the easiest bets on the table. BetMGM Sportsbook lists -105 for both sides of this coin toss bet, and hey, it’s a quick win or loss before the real action begins.
National Anthem Length: Reba McEntire Takes the Stage
The national anthem is always a moment to remember, and this year, Reba McEntire is in charge. Sportsbooks might even take bets on whether she’ll finish singing before the fastest-scoring drive in the game. It’s a clever way to keep the anthem bet exciting without insiders spilling the beans on the duration.
Gatorade Color on the Winning Coach: Quenching the Thirst in Style
We all love the Gatorade shower tradition for the winning coach, but here’s the twist – what color Gatorade will they use? This prop bet lets you flex your Gatorade knowledge. You don’t have to guess the flavor, just the color. Blue has been a hot pick in recent years, so keep that in mind.
Opening Kickoff: Touchback or Not?
Right from the get-go, you can bet on the opening kickoff. Will it be returned or just end in a touchback? Easy, right? As long as there’s a kickoff return attempt, you win with the return bet. But if it’s a touchback, then the touchback bet cashes. Quick and simple – just the way we like it.
More Than Two Players Attempting a Pass: Spice It Up
Sure, the starting quarterbacks will toss the pigskin around, but what about others? This prop bet lets you bet on whether more than two players will attempt a pass. Blowouts, injuries, and trick plays – there are multiple ways this bet can hit, making it a spicy addition to your Super Bowl betting menu.
The Octopus: Eight-Legged Touchdowns
Here’s a quirky one – the “octopus.” It’s when one player scores a touchdown and follows it up with a two-point conversion. Eight points by a single player – that’s the octopus. It’s a rare sight, but last year’s game saw Jalen Hurts pulling it off. Books noticed, and now you can bet on whether we’ll witness this eight-legged feat again.
Scorigami: Making NFL History
Ever heard of Scorigami? It’s when the final score has never happened before in NFL history. With countless scoring possibilities, there’s always a chance for a unique score. This prop bet lets you wager on whether Super Bowl 58 will end with a final score that’s never been seen in NFL history. Now that’s betting on history being made!
So there you have it – a sneak peek into the wild world of Super Bowl prop bets. Whether you’re into coin flips, Gatorade showers, or eight-legged touchdowns, these bets are sure to keep you on the edge of your seat throughout the game. After all, it’s not just about who wins or loses; it’s about the journey and the crazy bets that make the Super Bowl an unforgettable experience. Get ready to roll the dice, and may the quirkiest bets be ever in your favor!
