Super Bowl 50 is an event, more than it is a game. There are commercials, musical performances, a lot of eating, and a lot of betting. Some of the bets are the standard fare, but some are the exotic, known as “prop bets”.
Parties are all the rage when it comes to the Super Bowl. Family and friends get together, they eat, they schmooze, and they watch the biggest game of the year, and the biggest television event of every year. It’s an institution in America, and in some cases, around the world. Super Bowl 50 is no different.

What also occurs is a great deal of wagering. Boxes are created, pools are run, and the game is kept interesting for everyone. The standard bets regarding the scoring are typical, but what about the exotic bets? Not only groups, but couples like to make friendly bets on secondary elements as the coin toss.
But there are a lot of bets to be made, and even Las Vegas has entered odds on many of them. So, if you are looking for some more entertaining bets to make with your friends, or something creative to bet on with your spouse with a chore as the stakes (happens in my house every year), then look no further.
The prop bets have been released. Here are some of the most interesting and fun, along with their odds:
"Odds on what color Gatorade will be poured on the winning coach:• Yellow: 7/3• Orange: 3/1• Clear (including water): 4/1• Red: 17/3• Blue: 12/1Odds a fan streaks the field: 40/1Odds there is a Microsoft tablet malfunction: 9/1Odds the term “natural leader” is used to describe Peyton Manning or Cam Newton during the broadcast: 2/1O/U (Over/Under) on the number of times Archie and Eli Manning are shown during the broadcast: 5.5O/U on the number of promos for CBS shows during the broadcast: 12.5O/U on the number of times CBS mentions it’s the “most watched network”: 3.5"
If the halftime show is your thing, there are even some odds there:
"Odds there is a halftime show wardrobe malfunction: 25/1O/U on the number of guest performers during the halftime show: 5.5O/U on the length of the national anthem: 1 minute 57 seconds."
There are countless others. If I were to choose one, I think the over on the number of times CBS indicates that they are the “most watched network” is pretty safe. They seem to make this statement every time they go to break, and we all know they will go to break more often than four times.
Above all else, have fun.
