Prop bets have become the game inside the game for sports gamblers. The traditional way to gamble on the Super Bowl was to pick one side or the other and the total score of the game. Those days are long gone as these days gamblers have all kinds of options to spend their money.
Prop bets have grown and grown over the past two decades after Perry scored that touchdown and now there are all kinds of options beginning with the games opening coin toss. A person can wager not only on whether the flip will come up heads or tails, but who will win the toss. Also they can connect any of the previously noted options.
Then there are the quarterbacks, how many yards, completions, touchdowns, and interceptions are just a few of the dozens of possibilities that exist based on the quarterbacks.
The same odds can be found for both the running backs and wide receivers as well as tackles made by various defensive players.
Some of the most obvious prop bets are who will win the MVP and who will score the first touchdown. There even is the availability to pick how the first touchdown will be celebrated this year.
Kickers have their own area in which yone can pick how many field goals will be made and missed and also includes distances with varying odds.
Ultimately, the big game must end and for those out there who like to debate that, there are prop bets on who will score last and whether the game will go to overtime or not.
For the old fashioned who do not understand all of these options, the ability is still there to just pick a team that is playing and hope for the best.
