The Super Bowl 52 Prop Bets Are Wild

The spread for the game as of 1pm eastern standard time today is New England -4. As I wrote early last week that line will leave you alone in a glass case of emotion while everyone celebrates a Tom Brady end of the game drive to set up a game-winning field goal.

Everyone will be like this:

Meanwhile, this will be you:

Don’t say I didn’t warn you.

If you couldn’t tell my prediction for this game is

Pats 24 Eagles 21

However, there are a hilarious amount of other ways you can lose money on this game that are wayyyyy more fun. I am going to go through some that I found funny and give you my predictions.

How Long Will It Take Pink To Sing The National Anthem

Over 2 Minutes -150

Under 2 Minutes +110

A personal favorite of mine. There is nothing like watching people sweat over America’s anthem with their stopwatches.  With Pink, I think this is a no-brainer. You got to expect the over pronunciation of words and a prolonged BRAAAAAAAAAAAVVVEEEEEEEEEE with her.    Over all day. *

*For those who aren’t into gambling terms like +110 and -150 first of all congratulations you are what us degenerates call “A Decent Human Being”.  I just want to clear up the terminology for those who have no clue what I’m talking about.

 

The -150 means that you have to bet $150 to win $100. This is because it’s most likely to happen. So for example, if you bet $50 that Pink was going to go over 2 minutes and she does the damn thing and brought the house down over 2 minutes you’d only win $33.33. A lot of people think that because they bet $50 bucks they will win $50 bucks and that’s not always the case when you are betting something that is a “likely” outcome

On the flipside, if something is + odds, meaning the outcome is more unlikely to happen, that 50 bucks that you bet at +110 odds means you’ll win $55.

I know it’s confusing….but in simplest terms:

If you see a minus sign next to a number that’s the number you’d have to bet to win $100 bucks.

If you see a plus sign that’s the number you’d win if you bet $100 bucks.

If that helped you are welcome. If not, I apologize.

Onwards,

What Color Will Pink’s Hair Be 

White/Blonde 5/4
Pink/Red 2/1
Blue/Purple 5/1
Brown/Black 7/1
Green 3/1

This is the hilarious stuff I’m talking about. You can literally bet on ANYTHING.  I’m known to have connections on the inside (totally bluffing) and they say that Pink is a pretty big Eagles fan. The Eagles wear green.  HMMMMMMMM

Prediction: I’d Go Green 3/1

What color will Bill Belichick’s shirt be at kickoff?

Blue 2/3
Grey 13/10
Red 10/1
White 10/1

Prediction: Bill’s a no-nonsense blue kinda guy

In 2018, you can even bet on the number of your presidents’ tweets during the Super Bowl

OVER/UNDER Donald Trump Tweets on Feb. 4, 2018

Over/Under 5

HAHAHAHA OVER FOR DAYS. He’s probably done 5 since I’ve typed this.

How many times will Tom Brady’s age be mentioned during broadcast?

Over 1.5 -280
Under 1.5 +185

I feel like Al Michaels (Awesome) and Chris Collinsworth (UGHHHH) are going to mention the fact Brady’s 40 all night long.

How many times will Giselle Bundchen be shown on TV during broadcast?

Over 1.5 -120
Under 1.5 -120

Prediction: Most men in America would love that number to be over.

You can even bet on things being brought up that happened almost 20 years ago:

How many times will Janet Jackson be mentioned during broadcast?

Over/Under 1.5

Will “nipplegate” be said during broadcast?

Yes +500 (5/1)
No -900 (1/9)

Prediction: Only in America can I bet Over and Yes on subjects like this

I distinctly remember being in 5th grade when this happened and how pumped my Mom was that I went downstairs to play some Mario Kart during the Halftime Show. I remember overhearing that it looked like a star. Of course, that was the topic around a 5th-grade boys lunch table the next day, and I just said it looked like a star and everyone agreed and I was off the hook. Totally didn’t see it. I was totally racing on Moo Moo Farm.  Can’t see em all.

Will any members from NSYNC perform with Justin Timberlake?

Yes +200 (2/1)
No -300 (1/3)

JC, CHRIS, HOWIE, and LANCE!!!!!! YOU BETCH YA!!!    (I hear this is probably not going to happen, but a 27-year-old NSYNC fanboy can dream)

What color will the liquid be that is poured on the game-winning coach?

Lime/Green/Yellow 9/4
Orange 3/1
Red 4/1
Clear/Water 4/1
Blue 4/1
Purple 10/1

Prediction: Clear/Water.

It’s either as clear and mundane as Bill or Tom makes it so the Gatorade jugs are just filled with water. I’m sure Gatorade has too much sugar and electrolytes and is shunned by the TB 12 method anyway. Easy money.

Who will the Super Bowl MVP mention first in his speech?

Teammates 2/1
God 3/1
City 7/1
Coach 7/1
Owner 10/1
Family 16/1
Does not mention any of the above 2/1

If it’s Brady. (It’ll be Brady) It’s Teammates.  If it’s Gronk (PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE) it will 100% not be any of those choices.

Lastly, these are just fun Cross-Sport ones that I found. So interesting.

What will be higher?

Temperature at kickoff in Minnesota -150
Total points scored in the first quarter +110

The High Temperature for Sunday is Projected to be 9 degrees with the potential of it being as low as -1 by kickoff.  I’d go total points scored.

What will be greater?

New England Patriots total points EVEN
Kyrie Irving total points and assists vs. Portland -140

Easily my favorite one of all.  Kyrie (when healthy) can go for 30pts and 6 assists in any game. The Pats offense is going up against a solid front 7.

The kicker is Kyrie might not even play! So as long as the Pats don’t get shut out and Vegas doesn’t take the bet down. You win!

If Kyrie is playing I’d go Kyrie.

What will be greater?

Philadelphia Eagles touchdowns in Super Bowl 52
Joel Embiid blocks on 2/3/18

Embiid averages 1.8 blocks a game but can easily go for 5-7 on a given night. I feel like Vegas feel Philadelphia isn’t going to score that often so I’d go Embiid.

 

I have to note I don’t bet all of these props that I put on here. That was typed so my mom doesn’t have a heart attack. I’ll dabble in 2 to 3 of these but these were the ones that I found fun. That’s what the night usually is all about. I have a wedding to pay for so I will be working at the bar all Sunday. There is already a strong crew heading there for the game. I can’t promise you a place to sit but I can promise you a good atmosphere and cold drinks. More the merrier.  Good luck if anyone is betting any of these props. I hope you all make money while watching the Pats win #6!

*For those who aren’t into gambling terms like +110 and -150 first of all congratulations you are what us degenerates call “A Decent Human Being”. I do understand you may have just read that whole blog going “What The Hell Do Those Numbers Mean?” I just want to clear up the terminology for those who have no clue what I’m talking about.

Happy Thursday. (3 more days!)

  1. Anyone who thinks Janet Jackson/nipplegate won’t be mentioned AT LEAST 3 times is off their rocker. Easiest bet I’ve ever seen.
