Best Novelty Super Bowl Prop Bets To Make Now

The Super Bowl is Christmas for sports bettors, which means it’s that time of the year for sports fans.

The Super Bowl 58 matchup is set. The San Francisco 49ers will square off against the Kansas City Chiefs for the second time in the past five seasons.

The Super Bowl is being played in the sports-betting capital of the U.S., but there are great options for online sports bettors to make in any state where the practice is legal.

Plus, when the Super Bowl rolls around, there are new and unique betting markets that sportsbooks open. Let’s take a look at some novelty Super Bowl prop bets to place now.

Novelty Super Bowl Prop Bets

Team Wins Coin Toss and Game

DraftKings Sportsbook • WAGER: 1 Unit

The Chiefs finally broke the eight-season hex of winning the coin toss and losing the game when they defeated the Eagles 38-35 after winning toss.

Since the team that wins the toss generally defers, and can change momentum with the double-possession string between the second quarter and third, I’ll bet on the team that wins the toss to start a streak and win the game.

If you want to pick a side and bet on the coin toss, do so, since both sides are going off at DraftKings at +100.

Gatorade Color Poured on Winning Coach: Orange

DraftKings Sportsbook • WAGER: 0.5 Units

If the Chiefs win the title for a second straight season, it’s safe to believe Andy Reid will get doused with orange Gatorade as he was when KC defeated San Francisco four years ago.

Purple was the winning color a season ago, but the Chiefs don’t seem superstitious about keeping the drink color uniform. KC doused Reid in purple Gatorade a season ago after it being an orange-colored drink during his first title.

All this analysis could be moot if the 49ers win the title and decide to dump a different color over coach Kyle Shanahan.

San Francisco hit Shanahan with a clear water shower after his first win and could choose that again if he bookends it with a championship.

Clear is +1200, .

Red and yellow make orange, which are the colors for both teams, which could be influential.

Other Top Super Bowl 58 Novelty Props To Bet

Those Super Bowl 58 prop bets mentioned above are the most common you’ll hear mentioned on broadcasts, but there are plenty more available at DraftKings.

For instance, you can bet on the jersey number of the first TD scorer. The favorite is Over 22.5 (the obvious one being Christian McCaffrey, who wears number 23).

Of course, you could go under if you think that Deebo Samuel (19) or Isiah Pacheco (10) score first.

There is also the option to bet on which team uses a coaches challenge: The Chiefs are favored at -115.

Another option is betting the total combined number of the jerseys of all the TD scorers (Over 121.5 is favored at -150).

Lastly, you can bet a “Scoragami" which is when there is a unique final score - one that has never happened in NFL history. The odds on that are +2000, but with two free-wheeling coaches and the two-point conversion, you never know.
