Super Bowl Gatorade Color Odds & Prop Bets

Last Updated: Feb 7, 2024

The Super Bowl is around the corner, which means the most important bet of the season is upon us:

The Gatorade color poured on the winning coach.

We here at The Game Day take our responsibility of giving well thought out, intelligent betting coverage seriously. That’s why the following is your go-to for all the information you need to correctly wager on a grown man being soaked in sugar, water, and electrolytes.

Super Bowl Gatorade Color Odds

NFL odds used here are current as of Wednesday, Feb. 7, and are courtesy of DraftKings Sportsbook.

  • Purple (+225)
  • Yellow/Green (+300)
  • Orange (+300)
  • Blue (+350)
  • Red (+350)
  • Clear/Water (+1000)
  • No Gatorade Bath (+1600)

Purple having the best odds is a crime. There is also a ton of value to be had, especially based on last year’s choice.

Let’s use some recent history to help us make the call for this Super Bowl prop.

What Color Was Last Year’s Gatorade Bath?

Super Bowl 57 Gatorade Color: Purple

Imagine sportsbooks not having clear/water at lower odds. There is an opportunity to see Chiefs coach Andy Reid get doused once again, and considering that Kansas City has not duplicated its color choice in two previous victories, the long shots deserve some love.

Gatorade Color History in Super Bowls

Thanks to the fine folks at The Game Day, we have some history on what Gatorade has been the most prevalent over the years to help with your Super Bowl betting.

The conclusion? Well, everyone does their own thing, and one color truly hasn’t stood out.

Perhaps the most shocking realization is that red, a longstanding favorite of the public, has not had a single moment.

Here is a breakdown of Gatorade colors dumped on winning coaches since Super Bowl 35:

  • Orange (5)
  • None (4)
  • Clear (4)
  • Yellow (4)
  • Blue (4)
  • Purple (3)
  • Red (0)

Orange has become the most prominent color — the winning color in five of the past 13 Super Bowls — while the color blue has hit in three of the past eight Super Bowls, including in two of the past three.

  • The Chiefs covered Andy Reid in purple after their Super Bowl 57 win.
  • The Buccaneers poured blue Gatorade on Bruce Arians in Super Bowl 56.
  • The Chiefs went orange for Reid in Super Bowl 54.
  • The Patriots poured blue on Bill Belichick in Super Bowl 53.
  • There has been no Gatorade shower in four Super Bowls since Super Bowl 35. The last time it happened was in Super Bowl 51 in 2017.

Gatorade Color Prediction


Call me a purist (nailed that pun), but if the Chiefs win, there is something pure about a third Super Bowl win with this group. Their dynasty has not run pure, per say, due to injuries, turmoil, and lack of offensive skill position talent at receiver, but pouring water on Reid would cleanse this team of their tumultuous journey.

Also, the game is in Vegas. Gotta stay hydrated with the amount of libations flowing throughout the city.

Gatorade Color Super Bowl Best Bet

Color of Gatorade First Poured On Winning Coach: Red/Pink (+500)

FanDuel Sportsbook • WAGER: 0.5 Units

Majority of books have Red/Pink at (+325) or lower, so this is a screaming value.

The reasoning for this wager is simple - there are two teams with red as their dominant color, and the color hasn’t hit at any Super Bowl since the 35th installment. I’d rather be ahead and take this number than hope a color at (+300) or lower hits.
