Gatorade Bath

Super Bowl Sunday is coming! It is one of the best days of the year, especially for those who love getting down some action on the games. There are tons of different bets that can be placed in this game, including a great deal of “novelty props” available at DraftKings Sportsbook. Here are some such bets to consider on Sunday:

All odds provided by DraftKings Sportsbook and all odds are subject to change.

San Francisco 49ers vs. Kansas City Chiefs (6:30 P.M. ET)

Total Players To Attempts A Pass: OVER 2.5 (+124)

This prop is basically asking: will a skill player attempt a pass, or a quarterback get hurt during the game? It shouldn’t surprise us, but teams tend to get a little frisky in the biggest game of the year. Everyone remembers the Philly Special from a couple of years ago, but that isn’t the only time a skill player has thrown a pass in recent Super Bowl history. This prop has hit in three of the past six Super Bowls. Dante Pettis and Emmanuel Sanders have both attempted passes already this season for the Niners, and the Chiefs tried a trick pass with Sammy Watkins just three weeks ago against Houston. This is a good bet at plus-odds.

Jersey Number Of First Touchdown Scorer: UNDER 26.5 (-143)

This is strictly a numbers game for me (pun intended). Here are the key players that fall under each split of this prop.

Under: Jimmy Garoppolo, Sanders, Deebo Samuel, Matt Breida, Tevin Coleman, Tyreek Hill, Demarcus Robinson, Sammy Watkins, Patrick Mahomes, Mecole Hardman, Damien Williams

Over: Raheem Mostert, Kyle Juszcyk, George Kittle, Kendrick Bourne, Blake Bell, Travis Kelce

The over side has three of the biggest names, but there is strength in numbers for under.

Terrell Suggs To Retire Before 2/10: YES (+150)

It is not uncommon for players to retire after playing in the biggest game of the year. Suggs is 37 years old, and has been playing in the NFL for 17 years. He is likely due to retire soon as it is. Suggs already has one title as a member of the Ravens, and another in KC could lock him in to the Hall of Fame. There is a strong chance that he retires immediately upon a win, and could certainly still do so within a week of a Super Bowl loss.

Any Scoring Drive To Take Less Time Than National Anthem: NO (+400)

The singer for this year’s National Anthem is Demi Lovato. We already have some history with her at sporting events, including the World Series in 2011 and 2015. Her longest Anthem performance occurred at the UFC fight between Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor in 2017 — two minutes and 11 seconds. Even if she makes it to two minutes and 20 seconds, that is not a terribly long time. Just 25.3% of Super Bowl drives have been shorter in the past 10, and the Chiefs and Niners have scored in less than 2:20 32.3% and 26.9%  respectively this season. The odds are telling a way different story than the percentages.

Color Of Gatorade Shower: RED (+300)

Let’s have some fun with the last one, as everyone knows the game will likely end in a Gatorade bath, but nobody knows exactly what will come out of the container when the clock hits double-zero. We may have received our first hint at the Super Bowl press conferences earlier this week.

Andy Reid’s nickname is literally “Big Red,” so it shouldn’t surprise anyone if it ends up being red Gatorade that gets dumped on the veteran coach in the event of a victory. Furthermore, red is one of the primary colors for San Francisco. That’s about as scientific as this prop can get!
