Super Bowl Props 2021

Live Odds And Betting Strategy

The Super Bowl is the single most popular betting event in America. The wagering menu goes well beyond which team will win or lose, total points scored, or which team will cover the point spread.

Prop bets engage and entertain fans more than a week before the game and right through the Super Bowl. Proposition bets are games within the Super Bowl itself, and allow fans and bettors to wager on specific events other than the outcome of the game. That includes the opening coin toss or popular player props during the Super Bowl like the over/under quarterback passing yards, running back rushing yards, or how many touchdowns a player will score and which player will score the first touchdown of the game.

Those are just a few of the hundreds of various prop bets offered at different sportsbooks including FanDuel, DraftKings, and BetMGM. This page will guide you through the prop opportunities and assist bettors in their decisions while learning more about prop bet strategies, odds payouts and how different prop bets work.

Player props betting strategy

The Super Bowl is a special event and the entertainment value with hundreds of props is meant to provide added enjoyment and fun. When betting on props, understand that the lines and odds move quickly with significant action and early bets.

Try to focus more on prop value and less on prop type. You can find value in various player props by evaluating more closely the matchups and stats of significance. The props with yes/no or over/under are more favorable while props like which team or player will score the first touchdown of the game favors the sportsbooks with more hidden vigorish built into the odds.

Super Bowl MVP props

The Super Bowl MVP is voted on by a panel of 16 sports writers that account for 80% of the vote. The other 20% is by electric fan voting since 2001.

The quarterbacks are often the favorites and have won 30 of the 54 Super Bowl MVP awards. Yet QBs have won just four of the past seven Super Bowl MVPs. In 2018, longshot wide receiver Julian Edelman won the MVP award at +3000 odds at FanDuel Sportsbook.

Two defensive players were also Super Bowl MVPs in the last seven years, so longshot odds can be paid out and the sportsbooks will raise the odds on position players and defenders as more money comes in on the favorites.

Coin toss props

The coin toss with a specially minted coin is a popular Super Bowl prop bet as bettors ride the luck of heads or tails looking to win their first bet just minutes before Super Bowl kickoff. Since the first Super Bowl, the coin toss has been heads 25 times and tails 28 times. The random luck of the coin toss has nothing to do with the game, but the winner of the coin toss has gone on to win the Super Bowl 24 times and lost 29 times. Only five times in 53 Super Bowls has the team that won the coin toss chosen to kick rather than receive.

Gatorade shower color props

The electrolyte Gatorade bath of the winning coach is a popular prop, but there have been four times since Super Bowl 35 when a coach was not doused in Gatorade at all. In the last 10 Super Bowls, Orange has been the most popular Gatorade bath four times followed by blue and none twice and yellow and purple once. Clear was the Gatorade shower color four straight times from Super Bowl 39 through 42.
