The Super Bowl is the single most-watched American television broadcast
of the year and is projected to land nearly 100 million viewers in this upcoming matchup between the Chiefs and the 49ers. The 2014 Super Bowl between the New England Patriots and Seattle Seahawks currently holds the record with over 114 million viewers.
In last year’s Super Bowl, Nevada sportsbooks hauled in $159 million worth of wagers but the amount of total illegal bets placed was estimated at over $4.6 billion. Even the Super Bowl rings are expensive with an estimated price tag of over $40,000 apiece.
The odds on this Super Bowl matchup sees the Kansas City Chiefs as 1 to 1 ½ point favorites over the San Francisco 49ers with a total of 54 as of this writing. If you believe that Patrick Mahomes can crack the code of the vaunted 49ers defense then you’ll probably be betting the Chiefs. Assuming that is the case it’s quite likely that San Francisco will score enough points against a susceptible KC defense to push this game over the posted total.
However, if you’re convinced that nothing can penetrate the stingy Niners’ defense, not even the offensive juggernaut from Kansas City, then you’re likely to bet San Francisco and the under. Regardless of your wager, make sure to check out the NFL odds at all of the best online sportsbooks
The Proposition Bets
We all know that the Super Bowl is the NFL’s grandest stage and with that comes the legendary prop bets offered at virtually every online and Vegas sportsbook. Anything is in play from the length of time it will take for the singing of the National Anthem to heads or tails on the coin flip to begin the game, and even what color Gatorade will be poured over the head of the winning coach. Let’s take a look at a few of them right now.
- Super Bowl MVP
Patrick Mahomes QB +110
Jimmy Garoppolo QB +200
Raheem Mostert RB +500
Tyreek Hill WR +1600
Travis Kelce TE +1600
George Kittle TE +2800
Mecole Hardman WR +3300
Damien Williams RB +3300
Tevin Coleman RB +3300
Sammy Watkins WR +4000
Tyrann Mathieu S +5000
Nick Bosa DE +5000
Deebo Samuel WR +5000
Frank Clark DE +6000
- Star-Spangled Banner Length (2:00 minutes O -190)
Demi Lovato will do the honors and in her last rendition of the National Anthem she belted out the Star-Spangled Banner in 2:11 before the Conor McGregor/Floyd Mayweather fight in 2018. The oddsmakers at Bovada have set this line at an even two minutes but if you want to make a wager on it going longer than a deuce then you will have to put up $190 to make $100 but if you believe the soulful chanteuse will keep it short then you can wager $100 to win $145.
- How Many Songs Will Jennifer Lopez and Shakira Perform Together (1 ½ songs)
Speaking of impossibly hot female singers, there is little doubt that the halftime acts, Jennifer Lopez and Shakira will join forces
at some point, to create a powerful duet. The prop bet for your consideration is how many songs will they perform together? Personally, I feel that if they do perform together then there has to be more than one because if a Lopez song is chosen then a Shakira song must follow suit, or vice-versa. Divas never like to be outdone.
- Super Bowl Coin Toss (Heads/Tails)
If you can’t wait to get your game on then to get down on the coin flip before a single play is even called. Heads or tails, pick one and now you’ve got action. Pro Tip: Tails has come out on top in five of the last six Super Bowls and owns a 28-25 lead all-time.
