Prop Bet Secrets - Super Bowl XLV

Las Vegas, Nevada (February 4, 2011) – From RJ Bell of . . .

Coin Flip (-101 each way)
* 44 Super Bowls. Heads 22 times; Tails 22 times!
* NFC has won an amazing 13 straight coin flips (the odds of happening: 8,192 to 1)

What color Gatorade dumped on winning coach?
Yellow +$150
Clear +$220
Orange +$300
Red +$500
Lime +$600
Blue +$1000

* Neither BLUE nor RED Gatorade has been poured on the winning Super Bowl coach in the last 10 years.
* Typically the conference championship game celebration gives a hint of what color a team will use in the Super Bowl. This year, neither the Packers nor the Steelers poured upon the winning coach, due to the extremely cold weather at the games.

Rodgers +$150
Roethlisberger +$350
Mendenhall +$800
(no other players is better than +$1200)

* In 44 Super Bowls, the MVP has been a quarterback 23 times, a defensive player 8 times, and from the losing team 1 time.

National Anthem – How long to sing by Christina Aguirlera (over/under 1:54)
* SEVEN versions of Aguilera singing the national anthem have been found on YouTube. The longest is 1:54 – the other six have taken LESS time.

Total Points in 1st Quarter (over/under = 8.5 points)
* NO touchdown has been scored in the 1st quarter in 7 of the last 9 Super Bowls

Will there be OVERTIME? (NO = -1100, YES = +800)
* No Super Bowl has ever gone into overtime. Approximately 6% of NFL games go into OT, meaning the true YES price should by -1700)

Big Bet Alert: The sharpest wiseguys in Las Vegas have been playing OVER on Pittsburgh’s Tight End Heath Millers receiving yards – the current over/under is up to 45 yards.

  • Some of these just amaze me because of how easily they can be rigged, or inside information can be given out. I may be wrong, but I'm guessing a lot of places cap how much a person can put down on props that would be easy to find out. Or have you seen any of that? I mean anybody with a connection to the players can find out what type of Gatorade they will be having. Or Aguilara could time her Anthem to be 2:00 long. Just things of that nature.

    The Heath Miller wager is probably a pretty darn good one. I did a pretty detailed writeup and analysis of both team's passing games and their passing defense vs. certain defenses, vs. certain QBs etc. It really looks like Ward and Wallace etc. shouldn't get that many receiving yards. They SHOULD have a hard time, so Miller is the best option. And GB is likely to bring their LBs up close to the line to get pressure on BIg Ben and stop the running game, so Miller should be able to get some pretty easy releases and be open.
