Betting on the Super Bowl

If you want to bet on the Super Bowl but are looking for some outside-the-box options, a lot of sportsbooks have you covered in their vast catalog of Super Bowl 56 props. In most markets, online sportsbooks offer special props that you only see once a year for the big game.

Prop options include the outcome of the Super Bowl coin toss, whether a certain player will retire after the game, or what color the Gatorade shower will be.

It’s important to note that these options aren’t available in every state. Check with your local operators.

Super Bowl Coin Toss Props

The Super Bowl is one of the biggest betting events of the year, but not everyone wants to wager on standard moneyline or spread markets.

This is where prop bets come in, especially fun Super Bowl 56 props. One of the most popular prop markets centers around the coin toss.

The toss is used to determine which team will receive the ball first in the game. The winner of the toss decides whether to receive the ball first or get the ball first after halftime.

Unique bets on this can include:

  • The coin toss outcome
  • Player to call coin toss correctly
  • Which team will win the coin toss and the game

While the true odds for a coin toss are 50/50, sportsbooks won’t give those odds to you. They do usually offer reduced juice of -105 for this special prop.

Betting On Gatorade At Super Bowl LVI

Another prop offered in certain states is betting on the Gatorade dumped on the winning coach’s head, also known as the Gatorade shower/bath.

This is a fun pastime for the winning team and has now become a popular prop option at most online sportsbooks.

Top color choices are:

  • Orange
  • Red
  • Clear/Water
  • Yellow/Green
  • Blue
  • Purple

When it comes to history, Tom Brady’s teams went with blue in their 2019 and 2021 victories, while the Chiefs had orange when they hoisted the Lombardi Trophy in 2020.

Will A Player Retire?

Most players want to leave the NFL on a high note, and it doesn’t get better than making it to the Super Bowl. That’s why some sportsbooks offer odds on whether or not a player will retire after the game.

But…be careful. Many times the bet is only graded as a win if the player retires on the live broadcast directly after the game. So if the player you bet on to retire decides to leave the league two weeks later, your bet would lose.

Many times these bets focus on key players and coaches. There is already speculation this year that Tom Brady might finally decide to hang it up, although that seems unlikely after such a great season with the Bucs.

Just remember to read your sportsbook’s house rules if you decide to wager on this market.
