Super Bowl Prop Bets
Super Bowl betting goes way beyond the simple pointspread proposition we are
all familiar with. In fact betting on the outcome of the game itself has become
secondary in recent years with all of the creative prop bets being offered by
the leading inline sportsbooks.
Prop bets galore make take the Super Bowl betting experience to new heights.
Online sports book SPORTSBETTING.com has one of the largest selections of prop bets available for the big game…and they’re currently running a 125% Super Bowl sign-up bonus (you can check it out at their site).
Let’s have a look at a handful of the prop bets that are attracting attention from sports bettors.
Peyton Manning Props:
The unquestioned leader of the Colts is QB Peyton Manning and as you’d expect, prop bets focused on Manning are popular.
During the regular season, Archie’s son completed 68.8 percent of his passes for 4,500 yards and in the playoffs he has a 67.5 completion percentage for 623 yards.
- One prop bet offered is “What will Manning’s first pass in the big game be? A completion (-235) or an incompletion (+185)?”
Bettors are laying the -235 juice and betting that Manning will complete his first pass of the game. 80% of all the betting action on this one is tilted to a completion.
- Will Manning throws an INT on Sunday? Yes (-175) or No (+142)?
Manning averaged an interception a game during the regular season, however during the postseason he has only thrown one pick in two games.
The early action on this one is betting that Peyton will toss a pick, with 75% of all the volume so far hoping the Saints can grab an errant Manning pass.
- Will Manning pass for Over or under 307.5 yards?
This prop betting option is one of those that has received the most action. And so far, the clear choice is a big passing day from Manning. 80% of the volume is on the “Over” 307.5 passing yards
Drew Brees Props
Manning’s counterpart on the Saints is Drew Brees, who attempted 514 passes during the regular season and so far has attempted 63 passes in his two playoff games.
- The Over/Under on Brees’ Total completions for the game is 24.5, with the Over getting a slight nod from the betting public at 56%.
- With a league-high 34 TD passes in the regular season and an NFL-best 6 during the playoffs, the Total TD Passes for Brees on Sunday is set at two. Betting action is tilted to the “Over”, as 60% are hoping for at least three TD passes from the Saint signal-caller.
Respectively, the Colts and Saints had the second and fourth-best passing attacks in the regular season and second and fifth-best in the playoffs and there are some notable receivers on both teams.
Although the Saints were behind the Colts, their WRs are more heralded and their Total receiving yards go as follows:
Receivers Over/Under Yards Props:
75.5 yards for Marques Colton
45.5 For Every Henderson
35.5 For Robert Meacham.
The Colts’ receivers made their bones this year (two hit 100 receptions) and with the injury to Anthony Gonzalez, Austin Collie and Pierre Garcon were the ones who really stepped up.
There is a prop bet that asks, “Who will record the most receiving yards for the Colts?”
Collie (+400), Garcon (+120), RB Joseph Addai (+600), TE Dallas Clark (+100) or WR Reggie Wayne (-120)?
So far Reggie Wayne and Pierre Garcon are neck-and-neck with bettors, with Wayne receiving 35% of the action and Garcon 31% of the bets.
We’ll look at a selection of other prop bets as the week progresses.
