Every year, the Super Bowl produces a plethora of novelty bets, aka exotic, prop betting opportunities. Super Bowl 56 is no different.
Whether it is the length of the national anthem, how many times the broadcast team will mention Tom Brady‘s retirement or the coin toss, you can legit place a wager on anything that has to do with the big game.
One of the most popular Super Bowl exotic bets pertains to America’s favorite sports drink, Gatorade, and the legendary “Gatorade Bath." Most sportsbooks will let you place a prop bet on which color Gatorade will get dumped on the winning head coach’s head.
Below, I will review the latest Super Bowl Gatorade odds and some of the history of the Gatorade shower, from a betting point of view.

The beloved Gatorade shower will be one of the most popular exotic wagers for the big game, with the color orange slated as the early favorite (+200) at BetMGM Sportsbook.
What Color Was Last Year’s Gatorade Bath?
Blue was the winning color in Super Bowl 55, as correctly predicted by The Game Day’s own Pauly Parlays in his 2021 Super Bowl 55 Exotic Prop Betting article. Blue was an underdog color choice at +900 at PointsBet.
What a way to cash in on great odds, am I right?
Because the blue Gatorade shower won last year as a heavy underdog, it is now favored at (+200) BetMGM for Super Bowl 56.

Gatorade Color Prediction
Go with the Gatorade color of the team you think will win. Keep it simple.
If you think the Los Angeles Rams will win Super Bowl 56, then go with blue (+300). If you believe the Cincinnati Bengals will be victorious, then choose the color orange (+200).
Not only is this a logical approach, but it is also a safe approach. Blue and orange are the top two favorites of the color choices for the Super Bowl 56 Gatorade shower prop bet.
If you want to get slightly better odds, the Rams do have yellow in their uniform. A yellow Gatorade bath currently has +4150 odds at BetMGM.
