With Super Bowl 57 coming this weekend, there’s a betting rush. Sportsbooks are trying to offer as many bets as possible on everything from who’s going to win the game to how many points the kickers will score. With so much to bet on, some Ontario sportsbooks even offer odds on novelty props– from color of the winning coach’s Gatorade shower to Rihanna halftime show odds.
With all that in mind, let’s see the five wildest Super Bowl markets sports bettors in Ontario will be able to bet on.
These sorts of bets have long been the domain of the grey market sportsbooks and the offshores for years. But, because of people’s interest in them, legal sports betting operators in Ontario made them available to be bet on for Ontarians. Now, if you have a lean on Rihanna halftime show odds, your chances of getting your money in a legal market is much better than in the old, grey market days.
Rihanna Halftime Show Odds
The usual pattern of halftime shows can be predictable here. Performers typically start the arrangement with an upbeat song, which should disqualify some of the available options. FanDuel Sportsbook lines Don’t Stop The Music as the favorite, but still at +150. Stay seems like an easy fade, given the chances of starting with a ballad are low.
For last song, Umbrella makes a lot of sense as a favorite. It’s one of her most famous songs and the last song in recent years has been saved for ones like Umbrella.
For lovers of math nerdery, “Scorigami” is any time an NFL game ends in a score that never occurred before. At +2000, a missed PAT or some wild decisions around 2 point conversions could make this a fun sweat. If you find excitement in rare mathematical combinations, or just want to root for chaos and anarchy, betting on a Scorigami may be for you.

It’s hard to make the argument there is any amount of predictiveness in this category. For what it’s worth, the Eagles dumped yellow Gatorade on Doug Pederson in 2018 and on Nick Sirianni after the NFC Championship Game this year. Blue has been the color four of the last eight years. However, in five of those years, the winning team had blue in their color scheme.
Make sure to line shop on this– Yellow/Green varies from a favourite in some spots to +350 in others.
Betting on the coin toss lately has been a boon to sports bettors once legal sportsbooks nixed the vig on the prop. In the past, betting on the coin toss was a guaranteed negative EV bet because you had to lay juice on either Heads or Tails. If you want to get even more creative, you can bet the side that wins the coin toss, if you’d rather, also for no vig.
As a lover of the Flea Flicker, this is a fun one to bet on, just because everyone loves a Flea Flicker! For the uninitiated or non-Madden 2008 users, a Flea Flicker is when the running back takes a handoff and tosses it back to the quarterback for a pass, typically for a 30- or 40-yard pass attempt.
It’s hard to tell whether or not we’ll get one or not. It’s difficult to tell whether we’ll get any form of trick play, really. However, teams tend to throw trick plays out there during the Super Bowl. We know that the Eagles are institutionally supportive of busting out a trick play in big moments – the Philly Special is called that for a reason – so Flea Flicker enthusiasts can be intrigued by +210 odds at DraftKings Sportsbook.
Best of luck with all your Super Bowl Bets!
