The Super Bowl is always fun with the various prop bets available. You don’t even have to actually bet, there are ways Patriots fans can play at home.

The Patriots and Eagles are set to play in Super Bowl LII this Sunday. Tons of money will be spent online and in Las Vegas as fans place bets on the game. There’s a way to have fun with those prop bets at home though too, or at whatever Super Bowl party you attend.

OddsShark has the best list of Super Bowl LII prop bets, and they even have a printable sheet that turns those into a party game. These are some of what OddsShark has to offer up.

Coin Toss Props

Will the coin toss land on heads or tails?

Heads -105

Tails -105

Through 51 Super Bowl’s, tails have been the winner of the coin toss 27-times compared to 24 for heads. Still, it’s very clearly a 50-50 chance and it’s always one of the earliest prop bets that fans have their eye on.

Will the team that chooses heads or tails for the coin toss be correct?

Yes -105

No -105

The Philadelphia Eagles are the away team for the Super Bowl, so they will be the team to make the call before the game. This prop is basically asking if they will make the right call in the air.

National Anthem Props

Pink will be singing the National Anthem at Super Bowl LII. There are always so many prop bets surrounding this performance, and this season is no different.

How long will it take Pink to sing the National Anthem?

Over 2:00 -140

Under 2:00 Even

The average length of the last 12 Super Bowl National Anthem performances has been 1:58.6. Whitney Houston’s historic 1991 performance before the Buffalo Bills and New York Giants was 2:15.

What color will Pink’s hair be when she starts to sing the National Anthem?

Pink/Red +150

White/Blond +175

Brown/Black +400

Blue/Purple +500

Green +500

Pink obviously makes sense for Pink, but longshot green would be my pick here. Pink is a huge Philadelphia Eagles fan, and since they’re in the game it would not be shocking for her to show some love for her team in the spotlight.

Will Pink forget or omit a word from the National Anthem?

Yes +300

No -500

Will Pink say “Eagles” before, during, or after the National Anthem?

Yes +110

No -150

QB Props

Will any QB throw for 400 or more yards in the game?

Yes +300

No -500

In his previous 7 Super Bowl appearances, Tom Brady has thrown for over 400-yards just once. That came last season in Super Bowl LI when Brady had 466 passing yards against the Falcons. It took him 62 pass attempts to get there, which was a career high for Brady in the playoffs.

Total completions for Tom Brady

Of the 15 Gatorade baths that have been recorded on the Super Bowl’s national broadcast, 4 times each the color has been orange, clear, or purple. The Gatorade has been yellow twice, and blue just once.

Miscellaneous Props

How many times will Janet Jackson be mentioned during the broadcast?

Over 1.5 Even

Under 1.5 -140

Will anyone other than Tom Brady or Nick Foles take a snap?

Yes +120

No -160

If you choose yes, you have a few chances to win this one. Of course, one of the starting quarterbacks could get injured forcing a backup to take a snap, or a team could run a trick play. A direct snap to a running back is possible. Or, if the Patriots are up big at the end of the game, Brian Hoyer could take a few snaps to take a knee.

What color will Bill Belichick’s shirt/hoodie be at kickoff?

Blue -125

Gray +150

Red +750

White +750

Total Donald Trump tweets on February 4th

If you want or need a closer look at some of the Super Bowl LII bets before throwing down some cash, make sure you go to OddsShark. They will have the latest lines and odds, as well as some historical insight for certain bets. Here in Tucson, Arizona, my small Super Bowl party will be playing our own version of the Super Bowl Prop Bet game. The prize is still TBD, and maybe we should just have the loser do something instead. Either way, these prop bets are a really fun way for everyone to stay involved during the big game. Even the casual football fan can have fun with them.
