Today we will be taking a look at the lighter side of Super Bowl betting where you can still make a few bucks with some funny bets available at some online sportsbooks.
One of the fun parts of each Super Bowl is looking over the list of prop bets, and Super Bowl 2015 will be no different. Super Bowl online betting is not just about picking a side and taking or laying the points, but also sorting through the list of Super Bowl prop bets and picking out one or two that seem enticing. While the exact prop bets for the Super Bowl XLIX won’t be available until the week leading up to the game, there are some props that appear year after year.
Heads or Tails?
This is a classic Super bowl prop bet, and one that there is no way to get an edge on. No amount of scouting or watching games will provide any insight on heads or tails, so it is a pure gamble. Much like betting red or black on the roulette wheel, picking heads or tails as a Super Bowl prop bet is simply up to random chance.
First Player to Score a TD
For this Super Bowl prop bet, there is some research and homework to be done. By analyzing the styles of the two teams, and the players they use most, it is possible to get an idea of which players are most likely to find the end zone first. Of course, for Super Bowl online betting it is still a gamble to have that pick actually be the right one but that is exactly what makes betting on these prop bets fun.
Length of the National Anthem
A prop bet that is only likely to be seen at the Super Bowl, picking the length of the National Anthem is another gamble that is hard to predict. Perhaps some angle could be found by studying the performer doing the singing, but that seems like a stretch.
While the two teams who will meet in Super Bowl 2015 are still a long way from being determined, the presence of some interesting and entertaining Super Bowl prop bets is one element to count on.
