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.

Campbell: Bet DEN Like a Sharp in SB50

Anderson Hillman Broncos

So you like the Denver Broncos in this year’s Super Bowl. And why not? This game has gone to the dogs in recent seasons, while the team getting the points has covered 12 of the last 15 times—an astronomical winning edge of 80 percent by betting standards. 

This is also the biggest spread we’ve seen in a Super Bowl since 2009 when Pittsburgh was favored by seven over Arizona, a number that proved too steep for the Steelers in their 27-23 victory.

Nover: Natural Parlay Scenario for SB50

The battle lines have been established for Super Bowl 50: Carolina is a 4.5-point favorite and the total is resting at 45 or 45.5. This sets up a natural parlay scenario.

Denver has gone under the total in 65 percent of its games this season, while the over has cashed in 70 percent of Carolina's matchups.

Manning's Super Bowl Betting Stats

Peyton Manning is a first ballot Hall-of-Famer and one of the greatest quarterbacks to ever grace a football field, but Super Bowl 50 could be his “last rodeo.” Manning was often criticized throughout his career for early playoff exits, and despite having one of the most talent rich teams with the Indianapolis Colts, only winning one Super Bowl ring.

With all of the question marks surrounding Peyton heading into Super Bowl 50 at Levi’s Stadium, let's take a look at how Manning has played in the sport's biggest game.

DEN-NE: OVER Trends Flying off the Page

Broncos Patriots Brady Manning

Here we go again. For the 17th, and quite possibly last time in their illustrious careers, Tom Brady and Peyton Manning will faceoff, and a trip to Super Bowl 50 is on the line. The Patriots come into Denver opening as 3-point favorites, but the real story might be the O/U total, as OVER trends are at an eye-popping level.

With the total sitting at 44, O/U bettors will want to give strong consideration to the OVER. The Patriots have posted a record of 8-3 O/U this season in games with a total of less than 50 points. Digging even deeper, over the past five seasons, the Patriots have gone 18-5 O/U when facing a total of 45 or lower, averaging 30 points in those games. The Patriots also tend to put up big numbers in revenge situations, as the total has gone OVER in an amazing 15 straight Pats games after they lost the previous game in a matchup. Even more—these teams have gone OVER in six of their last seven games against each other. As always when betting totals, keep an eye on the weather as the game approaches.

As for the 3-point spread—that’s a number the Patriots haven’t responded well to. New England has lost three straight games both SU and ATS as a favorite of 3-points or less, with each of those games being on the road. The 3-point mark might be a magic number for the Broncos, however, as they’re a perfect 5-0 SU and ATS in their last five games as an underdog of 3-points or less.

The Broncos got the better of the Patriots in a Week 11 game in Denver—30-24. For better or worse though, the Broncos will look like a much different team this time around, as Brock Osweiler filled in for Manning under center in the game. Denver’s offensive attack was highlighted by 29 carries between C.J. Anderson and Ronnie Hillman who rushed for a combined 172 yards and three touchdowns.

Despite being the top seed in the AFC, the Broncos have been a team to stay away from at the betting window, as they’ve now failed to cover the spread in five straight weeks, going 0-3-2. Unfortunately for Patriots backers, they also have an ATS trend working against them, as they’ve gone 1-5 ATS in their last six road games.

Looking for an edge based on the history of Manning vs Brady? Brady’s gone 11-5 SU and 9-6-1 ATS vs Manning in their careers, while they’ve split four playoff games against each other, both SU and ATS. For more on Brady vs Manning, check out our breakdown of their head-to-head matchups.

Cam Newton Panthers

NFC Title Game: CAR Cruising at Home

Cardinals Panthers Newton Fitzgerald

The NFL’s Divisional Round is in the books, and now we know the road to Super Bowl 50 will go through Arizona or Carolina. While the signal-callers in the AFC semifinals will hog the headlines this week, football fans—and particularly bettors— shouldn’t overlook the potential classic matchup brewing in the NFC. 

<h5>Shark Bites</h5>

<ul class="content-list">
<li>The Panthers are 10-4 ATS in their last 14 games.</li>
<li>Carolina is 5-0 ATS in its last 5 games at hom.</li>
<li>The Cardinals are 1-6 ATS vs teams with winning records.</li>
</ul>

The Carolina Panthers (16-1 SU, 12-5 ATS) will welcome the Arizona Cardinals (14-3 SU, 9-8 ATS) to town in what’s looking like an incredibly evenly matched affair. The Cards opened as 3-point underdogs, which shouldn’t be particularly surprising considering Carolina’s dominance at home. 

Arizona has been profitable in this spot, however, going 6-0 SU and ATS in its last six games when tabbed as an underdog of 3-points or less. Cam Newton and company have not lost at home since November 16, 2014—a streak that reached 12 in the wake of last weekend’s 31-24 victory over the Seattle Seahawks. Arizona went 7-1 SU and 6-2 ATS away from home in the regular season. 

Totals bettors, take note: the OVER is 6-2 in the Panthers’ last eight games heading into this one. Carolina was one of the top OVER teams in the NFL this year (10-5-1 O/U). Five of the Cards’ previous seven games in the month of January have also gone above the closing total. The OVER/UNDER opened at 47 at most shops. 

Another trend that favors bettors banking on high-scoring games: Carolina (31.2) and Arizona (30.3) were the only two teams in the NFL that averaged over 30 points per game this season. 

A date with either Tom Brady and the New England Patriots or Peyton Manning’s Denver Broncos is on the line for the right to represent the NFC in the Super Bowl. Considering how strong both teams are on defense, it’s looking like it’s going to come down to an old fashioned quarterback shootout between grizzled veteran Carson Palmer and young hot shot Cam Newton.
