Super Bowl Prop Bets: The Weirdest of the Weird

The Super Bowl is one of the most popular sporting events to bet on across the world.

It doesn’t matter if you’re a veteran bettor or someone who’s more casual: there is something to bet on for everybody.

While more traditional bets and props include betting on who will win the game, what the score will be or which player is taking home Super Bowl MVP honors, there’s another type of bet that involves weirder scenarios.

Prop bets can take anything into account and don’t necessarily depend on the outcome of the game.

Below, you’ll find some of the weirdest prop bets available for Super Bowl 55.

Weird In-Game Super bowl Props

Distance of Longest Penalty in Game?

  • Over 15.5 yards (-280)
  • Under 15.5 yards (+185)

That’s right. Bovada is letting you bet on something as weird as the distance of the longest penalty in the Super Bowl.

For reference, the biggest penalty in Super Bowl 54 was a 20-yard call for defensive pass interference. All other calls were 10 yards or less.

How Many Times Will Belichick Be Mentioned?

  • Over one time (-310)
  • Under one time (+205)

New England Patriots head coach Bill Belichick is not even in the Super Bowl, but his name has been attached to Tom Brady’s for the last 20 years.

Brady is trying to win his first ring without Belichick, so the odds are looking good that his name will be brought up.

Will A Fan Run Onto The Field During The Game?

  • Yes (+700)
  • No (-1600)

While a lot of NFL games were played without fans this season, 22,000 will be in attendance at Raymond James Stadium for Super Bowl LV.

Being able to attend a game during the COVID-19 pandemic is a privilege, so will someone jeopardize that come Sunday?

Will Any Player Propose To His Girlfriend On The Field After The Game?

  • Yes (+525)
  • No (-950)

Andy Reid Super Bowl Mask Design

  • Chiefs branded/logo (-2000)
  • Single color/no logo (+350)
  • Hawaiian-themed (+700)

BetOnline also has some weird prop bets, including what kind of mask Chiefs HC Andy Reid will be wearing.

While it may obvious for Reid to wear a Chiefs or single color mask, Reid is a huge fan of Hawaiian shirts. Will he bring that level of eccentricity to the Super Bowl?

Times "Home Field Advantage" be Said

  • Over 0.5 times (-300)
  • Under 0.5 times (+200)

The Buccaneers are the first team in NFL history to host a Super Bowl at home and the media has already been throwing “home field advantage” around.

What Will Happen To The Price Of Bitcoin (BTC) During The Super Bowl?

  • Price of Bitcoin goes up (-150)
  • Price of Bitcoin goes down (+110)

Color of Liquid Poured on Winning Coach

  • Orange (+100)
  • Red/Pink (+300)
  • Yellow/Green/Lime (+450)
  • Clear (+600)
  • Blue (+700)
  • Purple (+750)

One of the most well-known championship traditions is when the players dump Gatorade or another liquid on the winning coach. Chiefs players dumped orange Gatorade on Reid last year, so it’ll be interesting to see if the tradition continues if they win again.

Will "Burger" be Said by Andy Reid

  • No (-400)
  • Yes (+700)

Last year, Reid said he’d have the biggest cheeseburger after winning Super Bowl 54. This year, he’s already said he’ll make it a double cheeseburger if the Chiefs win back-to-back Super Bowls.

While the odds say he won’t bring “burger” up, don’t count out a man’s love for cheeseburgers.

Weird Super Bowl Halftime Props

Will The Weeknd Perform with Bandage(s) on Head?

  • No (-1500)
  • Yes (+600)

If you’re unfamiliar with The Weeknd, this year’s halftime performer, this prop on BetOnline will be weird to you.

However, The Weeknd has been performing and making public appearances over the last year or so with his head wrapped in bandages. This was done as a way to promote an anti-drunk driving message through his music.

Color of The Weeknd’s Jacket When First Seen

  • Black (+110)
  • Red (+175)
  • Blue (+300)
  • White (+300)
  • Purple (+500)

Will There Be A Wardrobe Malfunction?

  • No (-3500)
  • Yes (+900)

Will A Football Be Used As A Prop?

  • No (-630)
  • Yes (+365)
