Roundup of the Best 2018 Super Bowl Prop Bets

Image credit: Tony Webster

The betting lines are out and the bookmakers are ready. Super Bowl 52 happens this Sunday at US Bank in Minneapolis, Minnesota with the Philadelphia Eagles facing the New England Patriots. It’s a battle between a dynasty that has been here eight times since 2000 and a team that doesn’t have a single Super Bowl win to its name.

Philadelphia can claim a 1960 NFL Championship title, but when it comes to Super Bowl rings, they have nada. Will Nick Foles and his ragtag crew of beaten-up second stringers surprise the oddsmakers again and give Philadelphia its first NFL title of any kind in recent history or will Tom Brady and Bill Belichick etch their conjoined legacy even deeper into the history books?

I have my pick, but I’ll keep it to myself because we have more important questions to ponder today. For starters, does anyone have any idea what color Pink’s hair will be on Super Bowl Sunday? And Donald Trump – how many times will he tweet on Sunday?

These are the questions burning in so many minds across the national and around the world as the 2018 Super Bowl quickly approaches. Yes, they lack the high drama of Brady vs. Foles and dynasty vs. underdogs, but the fact is prop bets are basically a Super Bowl tradition at this point.

For instance, Westgate Las Vegas SuperBook director Jay Kornegay told the San Francisco Chronicle this week that about 60% of the bets placed at his sportsbook have been proposition bets. See, I’m not crazy – people seem to like props even more than actual bets on who will win the Super Bowl! That’s alright. What the people want, we deliver.

Let’s look at the best Super Bowl LII props.

Looking at the Best Super Bowl Props

Is there an edge to be had in some Super Bowl prop bets? There most definitely is in certain cases. You’re not going to get an edge over the coin flip, but you just might be able to dig up information that other people have missed and use it to your advantage for other wagers. Just keep in mind that oddsmakers tend to be very sharp on their props because a lot of money comes in on this category of Super Bowl bets.

For the most part, however, prop bets are just a fun way to put a little money on the Super Bowl without sweating statistics and making a big deal out of researching every possible outcome. Plus, there are those random funny props like whether or not “Nipplegate” will be said on air (no, seriously) that should appeal even to those who have no interest in football except to make a significant other happy.

We’ll be looking at prop bets in two broad categories today: prop bets that involve direct, in-game events and prop bets that have to do with all the many off-field shenanigans we’ll be seeing on Super Bowl Sunday. I’ll also be dividing this post into props that are available at international betting sites and those that are available at US-friendly sportsbooks.

Also note that there are literally hundreds of prop bets to choose from at some bookmakers. There is no way to display every single prop possible – especially if you use a wide definition of what counts as a prop bet. If you have a favourite bookmaker, it would be best to visit it yourself as well for even more options.

One last thing: there are so many Super Bowl bets to choose from at some bookmakers that it can be hard to even locate specific wagers. Most betting sites offer a search feature that you can use to locate those bets. For example, I had a hard time finding Paddy Power’s odds on a safety being score during the game, but was able to find it by using the search feature in the upper-left corner of the screen.

Let’s begin with a look at the best Super Bowl props among international bookmakers.

These props are open only to all our non-US readers and can be found at highly-rated, reputable bookmakers. This chart will include odds comparisons where available, but not all NFL betting sites will be offering the same props.
