Super Bowl props: They amuse me

If you ever wonder exactly how large gambling is in this country, take special heeds to Super Bowl week. The Super Bowl is the most gambled on sporting event in the universe.

 

I thought these Super Bowl odds may be of interest to you. They’re courtesy of Bovada, (www.Bovada.lv, Twitter: @BovadaLV). Included below are the more fun props that are mostly entertainment and television based. Plus some of the more interesting player, team, historical, and cross-sport props. This is by far the most creative list of props yet. If you’d like to see the full list of close to 500 props, please let me know and I’ll email them to you in a word document.

Also, if you’d like to speak to Bovada Head Oddsmaker Pat Morrow about the multitude of prop bets and the book’s perspective on the Super Bowl, he’ll be available all next week for interviews.
