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.


Super Bowl & Groundhog Day Odds Parlay

The 2015 Super Bowl will take place just one day before Groundhog Day, giving sportsbooks the perfect opportunity to capitalize on the legend of Punxsutawney Phil by offering props combining the two events into one special parlay.


NFL Prop Bet: Super Bowl XLIX MVP Odds

- Who is going to follow in Seahawks linebacker Malcolm Smith's footsteps as the Super Bowl MVP for the big game on Sunday, February 1?

Deflategate Odds: Belichick Suspension?

Those nasty cheaters in New England are at it again (allegedly) and Patriots management is on the hot seat over Deflategate.

Did they deliberately deflate balls to cheat against the Ravens and the Colts?

Oddsmakers don’t know, but they know there is lots of interest and therefore lots of reasons to post odds on whether the league will suspend anyone over the controversy.


Super Bowl Betting Odds: Seattle Dogs?

Oddsmakers opened the Seattle Seahawks as 2-point favorites in Super Bowl 49 betting odds, but a flood of money on the New England Patriots quickly changed all that.

Now with at least one sportsbook (Bovada) moving the Pats into slight one-point favorite status, an interesting Super Bowl betting trend has come into focus.

There have been 19 teams that returned to the Super Bowl for a second straight year but only five times did that returning team end up being an underdog in the second season.


NFL Computer Picks: Super Bowl XLIX

The Seattle Seahawks are sitting as slim favorites on the odds to win Super Bowl XLIX at many online sportsbooks this week, but the New England Patriots have been given the slight edge by the OddsShark Computer for the title matchup in Glendale.
