Super Bowl XLIX Prop Bets

The Super Bowl is here and offshore sportsbooks have continuously posted some intriguing prop betting opportunities. Typically the more public books like Bovada or Sportsbook.com offer a large number of prop bets for regular season games, but everybody joins the party when it comes to the Super Bowl. It’s the one sporting event where even non-bettors choose to spice up their viewing experience by throwing some money around whether it’s taking prop/novelty bets, buying squares, or wagering on the game itself.

The list below displays some of the current Super Bowl XLIX prop bets available at offshore sportsbooks. Many of these props are being offered at multiple books, so make sure to shop for the best line before placing any bets. The crew at Sports Insights has also picked out a few prop bets that may be offering some value.

Note: The top two Deflate-gate inspired props, which were released mid-week, have since been taken off the board.
