Best Super Bowl Prop Bets for You

What is a prop bet?

A prop bet, or proposition bet is a wager that isn’t always associated with the game’s outcome and at times. Prop bets aren’t placed on wins and losses/point spread. They are placed on things such as how many yards a player will rush for, how many touchdown passes a wide receiver will catch, how many sacks will a defensive lineman get or how many touchdowns a quarterback will throw. What’s more, you can even bet on things such as who wins the coin toss or what will be the colour of the Gatorade poured on the winning coach.

What do betting odds mean?

Keep in mind, all of the Super Bowl prop bets are “moneyline bets.” So if you see a plus sign, the number next to it indicates what you stand to win if you put down $100. (Example: If you bet $100 and the moneyline is +200, a successful bet gets you $300—$100 you bet and an additional $200.)

If you see if a minus sign, the number next to it indicates how much you would have to bet to win $100. (Example: If the moneyline is -300, a successful $300 bet gets you $400—$300 you bet and an additional $100.)
