At +850 on the day of the Super Bowl most of us were convinced it would be yellow. Who ever cashed in on purple at +850 identify yourselves and take a bow.
Purple Gatorade hasn't been seen at the Super Bowl since SB46 when the Giants won. It's also only the third time we've seen the color at the Super Bowl.
What Is The Super Bowl Gatorade Color Prop Bet?
A Super Bowl prop bet is a wager that may not directly correlate to the outcome of the game. Instead of betting on whether the total combined score of both teams will be OVER or UNDER the oddsmaker’s set number or if one squad will cover the spread over the other, you’re betting on the color of Gatorade to be dumped on the winning coach at Super Bowl 57.
All you need to do is select the shade you think will be poured on the head coach. Our Odds Calculator will tell you how much you’d win based on the Super Bowl Gatorade color odds and the amount you bet.
Who Started The Gatorade Shower?
After a 37-13 win over Washington during the 1984 season, Jim Burt decided that he wasn’t getting enough playing time and was being treated unfairly during practice. While most of us use our words, Burt used Gatorade and dumped the entire cooler of sugar water on New York Giants boss Bill Parcells – thus the first Gatorade bath.
Parcells would have Gatorade poured on him 17 times in the 1986 NFL season, including when the Giants won the Super Bowl, thus birthing the Super Bowl tradition we know today.
Super Bowl Gatorade Trends
Since Super Bowl 35, only a few winning coaches have escaped the victory soak. Coach Bill Belichick (New England Patriots) was spared a shower after wins in Super Bowls 36, 38 and 51. John Harbaugh (Baltimore Ravens) also stayed dry following Super Bowl 47.
When MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey hosted Super Bowl 48, the frigid temperature of 49 F did not deter Seahawks players from dousing Pete Carroll in yellow Gatorade after they beat the Denver Broncos.
From 2007 to 2010, clear liquid – possibly watermelon/strawberry flavor or plain old water – was dumped on the winning coach. Purple and yellow have been used in two showers since 2000, but it is orange Gatorade that has truly shined as the color of choice for winners from the NFC. This color reigned supreme with bosses of the bench Mike McCarthy (Green Bay Packers) and Sean Payton (New Orleans Saints) both being recipients of a carroty-hued shower.
Don’t Bet By Team Color Scheme
Since 2001, the color of Gatorade at Super Bowl games has only matched the team color scheme three times, with yellow being used on Mike Tomlin (Pittsburgh Steelers) and Bill Belichick twice getting doused in a blue mess.
In Super Bowl 55, that trend continued with a blue Gatorade soak for Tampa Bay Buccaneers head coach Bruce Arians.
So don’t try to be clever and bet that the color of the ’ade will match the jerseys.
