The Ringer’s Guide to Betting the Super Bowl, From Coin Flip to Gatorade Bath

American Gaming Association expects 50 million Americans to bet on Super Bowl LVII this weekend, up 61% from last year. If you are one of those 50 million, you can have fun.

There are endless ways to have fun betting on the Super Bowl. If you don’t closely follow sports betting patterns, regularly bet on NFL games, and don’t hunt whales (e.g. Bell ringerWarren Sharp or Raheem Palmer), it is much more interesting to focus on side bets, touchdowns and totals. And if you bet that way, you’ll be much less likely to end the night crying over empty boxes of Buffalo Wild Wings when the house party host sends a Venmo request for your share of the food.

While the bookmakers are taking your buddies to the purge in the traditional way, I encourage you to think about how you can bet on Sunday’s Super Bowl viewing: will the first Pringles or Doritos commercial air during the game? How many songs will Rihanna play during the break? How many times will the fact that the Kelsey brothers play against each other be mentioned on air, and how many times will Fox show their mother Donna? What will be mentioned first in the Super Bowl MVP speech after the game: his teammates (-120) or city/fans (+325)? (Or will it be God who currently sits as an outsider in +370?) You can bet on whether the player will make a marriage proposal after the game. If you think the answer is yes, books take these odds at +350. And that’s not all the in-game betting opportunities for real football!

How long will Jalen Hurts’ longest pass travel? Can Patrick Mahomes break the Super Bowl passing yard record? What will be the result of the first game? Can any player score three or more touchdowns? Will any player score exactly three touchdowns? If you would like to place a bet anything As for the Super Bowl, it’s probably possible.

I’m here to help you get through this wild betting world. I can’t promise you’ll make money, but I can assure you that if you follow this guide, the payouts will be pretty darn good, from a coin flip to a Gatorade bath.

Lines are taken from FanDuel as of Thursday evening unless otherwise noted.

Coin toss

A coin toss bet has no real value, you geeks. Most bookmakers set odds of -105 for both heads and tails, giving each outcome an implied probability of 51.2 percent. But a coin toss, by definition, implies that heads and tails mathematically have a 50 percent chance of winning, so the books get sorted out, by and large.

And yet, a coin toss bet absolutely electric. It’s the start of the biggest sporting event in the world, and everyone at your house party during the Super Bowl or at the bar next door is on the same side of the coin. The Tails Never Fails group is always the loudest (and most annoying). Tails supporters are initially reticent, but ready to yell in the faces of tails supporters if the coin does go up. head. (Sorry.)

Fox Bet reported that 52 percent of coin toss bettors came up tails in last year’s game. Heads is an artificial outsider in a situation that is mathematically 50/50 because of that damn rhyme. Someone has to stand their ground, and that someone is me.

Choose: heads (out of spite)

Length of the national anthem

I’d rather be stuck in Aaron Rodgers’ darkroom with my thoughts for the entire Super Bowl than No bet on the length of the national anthem. When some famous singer sings “ROCKET’S RED GLARE” to the accompaniment of an iPhone stopwatch and the guys scream and scream, it’s a national pastime! I have to believe that even President Lyndon B. Johnson had the cheeky Benjamin of the Pride of Arizona, the Michigan Band and the UCLA Chorus, who beat Super Bowl I by over 125 seconds.

Country music star Chris Stapleton, Kentucky native known for his song “Tennessee Whiskey, will sing the anthem at Super Bowl LVII. Despite some exhaustive research, I couldn’t find a video of Stapleton singing the anthem. We’re flying blind, guys! But maybe that’s for the best. Country singer Mickey Guyton really had recorded anthem before her performance at last year’s Super Bowl, but it turned out that the YouTube scouting report wasn’t all that helpful on game day. Her previous performance was just under 86 seconds long, but she kept losing 112 seconds. fireworks at Sofi Stadium. It’s not just football players who save their best performances for the Super Bowl, which could mean a longer performance of the Stars and Stripes than on a small stage.

What does this mean for Stapleton? The bookmakers don’t seem to know! The line is everywhere. It’s everywhere in the books. 119 to 127 seconds, with juice towards the end as of Thursday evening. Stapleton’s Kentucky drawl is expected to drag out the song a bit though only 39 percent of performances of the Super Bowl anthem have lasted more than 120 seconds since 1990.. I ride with money backing the over and cheer for every extended syllable and extra breath.

Choose: Over 119.5 seconds

Gatorade Taste

Let Ben Solak and Steven Ruiz grind the film “All 22”. Let Sharp crunch the numbers to explore early performance metrics based on staffing and field conditions. I’ll be here 40 Gen Z Trends deep down the rabbit hole that is TikTok to find out what color Gatorade will be dropped on a Super Bowl winning head coach.

If the Eagles win, I expect Nick Sirianni to be bathed in yellowish green lemon lime Gatorade. How do I know this? Lane Johnson and Fletcher Cox doused Sirianni after the Eagles’ NFC title win against San Francisco; The Philadelphia social media team provided us with evidence about TikTok.. Yellow/Green/Lime is currently a +150 favorite on FanDuel because TikTok sees it all and one-liners catch on, one viral clip at a time.

Orange has the second best odds on FanDuel with +280 because Chiefs head coach Andy Reid bathed in splendor orange Gatorade when Kansas City won their Super Bowl over the 49ers in 2020.

Can any team go wrong? Can Fierce Blue Cherry, Riptide Rush, or even Frost Glacier Cherry rock the world? Certainly. But right now, neither team has any reason to change their process. I’m betting on the Chiefs to win, so my bet is orange. If you fly with the Eagles, you drink lemon lime all day long.

Choose: Orange

Now to the funniest football betting:

Touchdown counter at any time

These bets are always interesting. They can hit anywhere from the first game to the last. They will also make you yell at the TV for someone named Britannia Covey to find dirt so you can cash out the long-term bet at 15 to 1 odds. Here are my favorites:

Chiefs WR Juju Smith-Shuster (+300)

With Mekole Hardman out due to injury, the Chiefs would field Smith-Schuster and Marquez Valdez-Scantling in their group with two wide receivers; no team in the NFL uses more sets with two wide receivers in the red zone than Kansas City. Since Valdez-Scantling has slightly lower odds than JuJu at +290, I like the value I get with Smith-Schuster at +300. He also ranks second on the team behind Kelsey in the team’s red zone target share of 15 percent.

Chiefs TE Noah Gray (+1000)

More staff with two wide receivers in the red usually also means tougher moments on the field for Kansas City. Travis Kelsey is, unsurprisingly, the favorite of any player in the Super Bowl to score a -125 touchdown, but I don’t see any value in those odds and the fun part is picking a random outcome. If Eagles defensive coordinator Jonathan Gannon does something on Sunday, it will mean Kelce is out of the end zone. So give me Gray with a 10 to 1 chance of being the beneficiary of the Kelce Triple Cover. Also, Gray is the best choice of leaders in covert situations. because Kansas City has stopped sneaking up on Mahomes since he hurt his knee doing it in 2019.

Chiefs WR Kadarius Toni (+350)

I’m sure the wizard that is Andy Reed will have some games in store for Kadarius Tony in the red zone, especially with his speedster Hardman suspended. Toney has run just 12 red zone routes since playing his first game for the Chiefs in Week 9, but his target on those routes is 42 percent. He left the AFC Championship game with an injury, but he said he would “definitely play” on Sunday, so I will definitely play his touchdown anytime at +350.

Eagles WR DeVonta Smith (+165)

A.J. Brown finished the regular season as the second-best pass catcher of all team goals in the red zone per share. 34 percent. However, not much further down the list is his teammate Smith with 26 percent, good for a No. 15 in the NFL. Brown should get all the extra attention when the Eagles get into the lead, leaving Smith to steal the show.

Passing a prop

Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes over 294.5 passing yards (-110)

Mahomes has thrown for over 294.5 yards in 58 percent of the games he has played this season, including his 326 in the Chiefs’ win over the Bengals in the AFC Championship Game. The Eagles’ passing defense will be some of the best Mahomes has faced all season, but expect him to excel. In his two games against the Broncos, the team that ended the regular season first in a allowed try (6.31 yards), Mahomes threw for 352 and 328 yards.

Chiefs RB Isaiah Pacheco Under 46.5 yards…
