The Philadelphia Eagles will take on the New England Patriots in the Super Bowl this year and as usual, the bookmakers have a lot of prop bets for those that want to make some extra bets on the big game.
Since there are hundreds of prop bets to choose from, we decided to make things easier for you and have selected the best prop bets to wager on.
The odds for each prop below are taken from Bet365.com. The odds are not up to date, so you will have to head to the sportsbook to see the current odds.
- Heads 1.95
- Tails 1.95
The coin toss is considered a 50/50 prospect, which it technically is. But there has been a trend when it comes to the coin toss, which makes it easier to predict where the coin will land.
Five of the last eight Super Bowl coin tosses have landed on heads, and the winner of the coin toss has gone on to win four of the last seven Super Bowls. So, if you want to bet on the coin toss this year, taking heads is the best option.
If you want to make things more interesting by predicting which team will win the coin toss, the NFC team has won 17 of the last 19 coin tosses, so pick the Eagles to win the toss.
Play: Heads 1.95
First Team To Score
- Philadelphia Eagles 2.00
- New England Patriots 1.72
This is a very interesting bet because if the Eagles win the toss, they will likely receive the ball, and if the Patriots win the toss, they will definitely kick it to the Eagles, which means Philadelphia will most likely receive the ball first.
If the Eagles receive first, they have the better odds to score, so put some money on the Eagles being the first to score on Sunday.
Play: Eagles 2.00
Super Bowl MVP
- Tom Brady 1.70
- Nick Foles 5.50
- Brandin Cooks 13.00
- Rob Gronkowski 15.00
- Danny Amendola 15.00
- Dion Lewis 15.00
- Chris Hogan 17.00
- Alshon Jeffery 19.00
- Zach Ertz 21.00
- Jay Ajayi 21.00
This is always a popular Super Bowl prop bet because the MVP award goes to the quarterback of the winning team on most occasions.
If you’re picking the Eagles to win, it is a good idea to bet on Nick Foles winning the Super Bowl MVP award. If you are betting on the Patriots, Tom Brady is the player to pick to win the MVP award.
If you’re on the fence, the smart choice will be to pick Brady to win the MVP because the Patriots have won five of the seven Super Bowls they have played, and will go into this game as the favorites to win the Super Bowl.
In four of the five Super Bowls the Patriots have won, Brady has been named MVP.
