Super Bowl LI prop bets: What color hoodie will Bill Belichick wear? Will ‘Deflategate’ be mentioned?
What color hoodie will Bill Belichick wear during Super Bowl LI?
When will the word “Deflategate” be uttered for the first time during the Fox broadcast of the game?
Who will be the heaviest and tallest players to score a touchdown?
Will Fox broadcaster Joe Buck be sporting any facial hair? And what will his tie look like?
If you know the answer to these or other extremely relevant questions, you might want to make some prop bets in the days leading up to the big game between the New England Patriots and Atlanta Falcons on Feb. 5 in Houston.
Here are some of the latest odds, according to SportsBettingDime.com:
The coach has gone with blue in both of the Patriots’ games this postseason, so that color will get you 4-11 odds. Gray comes in at 3-1, red at 40-1 and anything else at 50-1.
Everyone’s tired of that word. But since New England quarterback Tom Brady has lost just one game since serving a four-game suspension connected to the controversy surrounding the 2015 AFC Championship Game, it’s bound to come up. Odds that it will happen in the first quarter are 7-4, in the second, 5-3; third, 5-1; and in the fourth quarter, or not at all, 8-1.
The over-under for the heaviest player to score a touchdown is 249.5 pounds; New England running back LeGarrette Blount is listed at 250. The over-under for the tallest player to score a touchdown is 6-foot, 3-inches — the same height as star Falcons receiver Julio Jones.
Odds are 10-1 the play-by-play man will be clean-shaven, 1-5 his tie will be blue and 9-8 that tie will be solid. His booth partner, Troy Aikman, is favored to be wearing a blue (2-3), striped (8-7) tie.
— MVP: Brady (1-1) and Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan (9-5) are the favorites; Patriots receiver Danny Amendola is a long shot (70-1).
— First touchdown: Jones is a 9-2 favorite, followed by teammate Devonta Freeman (5-1) and Blount (6-1). Patriots running back Dion Lewis is a long shot (16-1).
— Number of times Aikman refers to one of his Super Bowl victories: The over-under is at 1.5.
— Number of sideline reports from Erin Andrews: The over-under is at 5.5.
— Odds that national anthem singer Luke Bryan puts his hand over his heart: 1-6.
— Halftime performer Lady Gaga’s hair color: Blond is the favorite (2-3), followed by brown (3-1) and pink (10-1).
