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.
That’s right, at online sportsbook Sportsbook you can actually wager on the winning team in Super Bowl XLIX plus whether or not Phil will see his shadow together for one price. For those not familiar with Phil, the Pennsylvania-based groundhog makes a popular appearance every February 2.
If he sees his shadow, it’s believed there will be an extended winter lasting another six weeks. If he does not see his shadow, then an early spring is anticipated. There is no proof backing either prediction.
However, bettors can try to predict whether the New England Patriots or Seattle Seahawks will win and if Phil will see his shadow in four different parlay scenarios at Sportsbook. For what it’s worth, Phil has failed to see his shadow only three times in the past 15 years - that’s the same number of Super Bowl titles the Patriots have won during that stretch.
