We're spoilt for choice on the NFL board with a veritable feast of prop bets trading. Still, there are some fun props we've thought of and that we feel have been overlooked by odds makers. Here's a list of some of the props we wish we could bet on.
We've got SIX fun Super Bowl Props here for you to consider. Unfortunately, they aren't real. Who knows though, maybe a sportsbook will pick up these ideas or any other ideas you might like to share in the comment box below and roll them out as real props before kickoff.
Tom Brady and Richard Sherman Chum it Up, Share Post-Game Handshake
Yes – +450
No – -650
A lot is being made about the ongoing, behind the scenes feud between Tom Brady and Richard Sherman. Well, Sherman keeps needling Brady but the Patriots' quarterback hasn't risen to the bait. Since Sherman tweeted the U MAD BRO caption after a 24-23 come-from-behind win over the Patriots, Sherman has been relentless about his opinions about Brady, insisting he's not what his public image is. Far from it. In any event, depending on the outcome of the game, we're wondering whether the pair will share an amicable handshake. Last year, Sherman ran over to Crabtree to shake his hand, but the Niner wasn't having any of it. Will Tom Brady forget his manners and good sportsmanship, especially if the Patriots lose? Wouldn't we wish we could make this prop part of our NFL picks?
Will Michael Bennett Ride The Police Bicycle Again If Seahawks Win
Yes – -115
No – -105
Obviously, such a prop rests entirely on Seattle Seahawks winning. It would be highly unlikely the Patriots would cede the field to Michael Bennett and his Seattle PD bicycle if they win. In the NFC Championship Game, Bennett celebrate Seattle's come-from-behind win by doing a victory lap around CenturyLink Field, a decision that was applauded as a stroke of genius creativity.
How Many Times Is Tom Brady Going To Flip and Curse At the Referees?
0 – +200
1 – +150
2 – -130
3 – +150
4 or more – +250
Are Tom Brady's true colours coming to the forefront? Could he really be cut from the same cloth as Richard Sherman, say? More and more, Brady seems to lose it on the field, whether it's yelling and cursing on his sideline to various staff members (ehem Josh McDaniels) or at referee's. Given the high stakes on the line this Sunday, he's so going to lose his cool with the calls, don't you think? Question is how many times?
Will Belichick or Carroll Attempt To Trip An Opposing Player?
Yes – +130
No – -150
Unsportsmanlike conduct doesn't only extend to players but coaches. There have been instances in the past when a coach (or team staff member) has thrust a leg/foot out and tripped a player running down the sidelines. In 2010, New York Jets assistant coach tripped a Dolphins player. Last season, Mike Tomlin of the Pittsburgh Steelers received a 100K fine for his wayward foot advancing onto the field, just as Jacoby Jones happened to be traipsing by. It would be a pretty low stunt if either coach or other member of staff attempted such a thing. during the Super Bowl. But, hey, anything can happen on any given Sunday. Right?
Marshawn Lynch Gives a Gushing Post-Game Interview
Yes – +500
No – -1000
We all know how much Marshawn Lynch loooooves to talk. You could go so far as to say he has the gift of the gab!
Rob Gronkowski's Trousers Come Off
Yes – +150
No – -110
In a few games this season, Gronkowski was seen to be sporting buttock cleavage after a ferocious tackle to bring him to ground. Since Kate Perry's boobs have merited being part of our NFL odds, it's only fair they'd roll out some props on Gronkowski's plumber's smile (to put it politely), no? Even the playing field so to speak.
So there you have it, some fun Super Bowl Props we wish we could bet on. If you have any ideas of your own, feel free to share below. Happy Super Bowl Sunday!
