All eyes will be on Kansas City vs. Tampa Bay on Sunday, but there are other ways to make money than betting on the Super Bowl.
Many bookmakers have novelty prop betting markets for the likes of the national anthem, half-time show, and Joe Biden.
We look at the most popular Super Bowl prop markets, and provide our best take on what’s going to happen in Tampa Bay on Sunday.
NFL Super Bowl LV Novelty Props
First Coach Shown During Anthem
- Andy Reid @ $1.80
- Bruce Arians @ $1.90
Andy Reid has been in the news for the wrong reasons on Sunday. His son and assistant coach, Britt Reid, was involved in a serious crash.
It’s unfortunate news just one day before Super Bowl LV, but because of that news, we believe punters could cash in with this novelty prop.
Everyone loves Andy Reid, and the camera loves him, too. We expect Andy Reid to be shown first during the US national anthem, so the $1.80 is a good price to start the day.
Bet: Bruce Arians @ $1.80
First Gatorade Colour Dunked Over Winning Coach
- Orange @ $2.35
- Red/Pink @ $3.50
- Clear/Water @ $5.50
- Yellow/Green/Lime @ $5
- Blue @ $5
- Purple @ $9
We love the Gatorade novelty prop, and we fancy the Red/Pink option this year. Kansas City and Tampa Bay have red in their uniforms, so the colour of the Gatorade could match.
Orange is the favourite, because of the popularity of the flavour, but punters should entertain red/pink. It has been a value colour over the last few years, and who wouldn’t love to see either Andy Reid or Bruce Arians dripping in red juice?
Bet: Red/Pink @ $3.50
How many times with Joe Biden Tweet?
- Over 1.5 Joe Biden Tweets @ $3.50
- Under 1.5 Joe Biden Tweets @ $1.26
If you like to keep one eye on the game and one eye on Twitter, this novelty prop is for you.
Joe Biden isn’t as active as Donald Trump was on Twitter, but we think he’ll want to appeal to sports fans on Monday.
We expect him to make a couple of tweets during the game, whether it’s about the game, or something related to sports in the USA.
Over pays an incredible $3.50, and we’ll happily lock in the value.
Bet: Over 1.5 Joe Biden Tweets @ $3.50
The Weeknd First Song
- Starboy @ $1.36
- Call Out My Name @ $5
- Blinding Lights @ $6
- The Hills @ $8
- Save Your Tears @ $10
We like The Hills to kick off the Super Bowl halftime show in Tampa Bay. It’s a banger of a song, and it would get the crowd pumping.
Starboy is the raging-hot favourite at $1.36, but we think that could be second on the lineup. The Hills starts off by saying: “Your man on the road, he doin’ promo” and that’s exactly what The Weeknd is doing at the Super Bowl.
Bet: The Hills @ $8
Will Ariana Grande Make An Appearance During The Half Time Show?
- Yes @ $3.25
- No @ $1.30
Ariana Grande has a song with The Weeknd (Love Me Harder), and she could add some excitement to the half time show by making an appearance.
Many artists over the years have featured surprise guests, and The Weeknd loves have other artists feature on his songs.
Yes is a value play for this Super Bowl novelty market.
Bet: Yes @ $3.25
