Markets in everything: Superbowl prop bets

“Prop bets” for the Superbowl are available at Bovada, on almost anything related to this Sunday’s game. Here are some examples:

Will the team that win’s the coin toss win the game?

Will the first score of the game be a touchdown/safety?

Will there be a score in the first 1/5/6 minute of the first quarter?

Will the Baltimore Ravens score in every quarter?

Will there be more points in the first half or second half?

Will the game go into overtime?

Total points – odd or even?

What will be the result of the first coaches challenge in the game?

Here’s an article from Grantland about Superbowl prop bets.

  1. The Grantland article by Bill Barnwell is very interesting and informative.

    Barnwell points out the lowest vig (commission) bet is on the coin-toss at two cents($.02), but is essentially giving money to the house.

  2. “Will the team that win’s the coin toss win the game?”

    I’d ordinarily ignore “win’s” for “wins” but I can’t let it pass, given the periodic rants here about “its” and “it’s”. :-)

    Tsk, tsk, tsk.
