Past Worst Super Bowl Results for Books

The last time the New England Patriots played at University of Phoenix Stadium, they lost Super Bowl XLII to the New York Giants 17-14 as 12-point favorites in one of the biggest upsets in NFL history.

The Patriots were trying to complete just the second perfect season ever and first at 19-0, but the Giants prevented that scenario from happening and ended up rewarding bettors with their biggest sportsbook win of all-time.


Tom Brady Super Bowl XLIX Prop Betting

Tom Brady may not be very popular outside of Massachusetts right now due to the whole Deflategate scandal. But the New England Patriots quarterback could help bettors make a profit on the 2015 Super Bowl due to a number of props featuring him at online sportsbook Bovada.

Brady is already a two-time Super Bowl MVP and the 7/4 favorite at the sportsbook to tie former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Joe Montana for the most in NFL history with three.


Super Bowl Gatorade Shower Prop Odds

It reportedly started spontaneously. Following a 37-13 win over Washington midway through the 1984 NFL season, New York Giants DT Jim Burt, unhappy with his reduced playing time and harsh treatment in practice, exacted his revenge on Giants coach Bill Parcells by dumping a cooler of Gatorade on him, and the Gatorade shower was born.

The Giants would go on to popularize the shower, dousing Parcells 17 times during the 1986 NFL season en route to their Super Bowl 21 win, spawning a phenomenon that extends today to amateur, collegiate and professional sports around the world.

Super Bowl XLIX: Exotic Game Prop Bets

With hundreds of Super Bowl props focused on what happens on the field between the New England Patriots and Seattle Seahawks in the big game, it should be no surprise that there are many more geared to what happens off the field.

The national anthem and halftime show are just a couple events happening on Super Bowl Sunday that viewers will be watching and bettors will be wagering on thanks to a few of the weirdest Super Bowl props available at online sportsbooks like Bovada.


Super Bowl XLIX: Cross-Sport Prop Bets

The Super Bowl is not the only major sporting event going on February 1, it’s just the biggest and most heavily bet game of the year. In fact, there are two NBA and 12 college basketball games plus four NHL matchups and even a couple Premier League soccer matches scheduled for the first Sunday of February.


Super Bowl National Anthem Prop Odds

From Barry Manilow to Garth Brooks, the Dixie Chicks to Renee Fleming, over the years The Star-Spangled Banner has been performed at the Super Bowl by a wide range of artists covering all musical genres.

Broadway and Frozen star Idina Menzel will sing the national anthem at Super Bowl 49, and online sportsbook Bovada has set the OVER/UNDER for her rendition of the song at 2 minutes, 1 second, with the OVER priced at -130 and the UNDER priced at -110 on that prop wager.

Super Bowl XLIX: Alternative Spreads

In the 48-year history of the Super Bowl the line has closed at less than a field goal only five times. That will likely change from five to six times when kickoff for Super Bowl XLIX finally arrives on Sunday, February 1.

Since the Super Bowl winner has historically covered the spread at an 83 percent clip, previously beating the line in 40 of 48 games, it’s definitely worth looking at alternative numbers you can also bet on at online sportsbook Bovada.
