Super Bowl prop bets are now listed at Vegas sportsbooks and are featuring some options that have not been seen in recent years. With the big game being held at the open MetLife Stadium during a blustery winter, many wagers will depend on the weather such as will it snow during the game? With most weather predictions showing a 30% chance of snow on the day of the "big game," bookmakers have heavily favored NO at -500 while YES would pay-out a profitable $300 (3/1) on a $100 wager. Sportsbooks have listed the actual temperature for kick-off time at an over/under of 32 degrees Fahrenheit (-120) with the lowest temperature set at 28 degrees Fahrenheit (-120).
Renée Fleming will sing the National Anthem before the game and many are expecting her to wear gloves. Bookmakers have favored her to wear gloves with YES -200 and a surprising NO returning +150. Gamblers also have the choice of choosing what color gloves if any, Fleming will wear with White at +125, Black at +150, Red at +400 and any other color paying out +300. One of the most profitable Super Bowl prop bets on the board is whether or not MetLife Stadium will have a similar power outage as last year due to the snow. With the odds against a repeat, those braving a $100 YES wager would receive a payout of $2,500 (250/1) if in fact the power goes out.
If betting on the weather isn't your cup of tea, than perhaps take a look at the first player to score a touchdown or most valuable player award. The Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch is listed as the 5/1 favorite to break into the end-zone first followed by the Broncos WR tandem of Wes Welker at 7/1 and Eric Decker at 8/1. Denver TE Julius Thomas, RB Knowshon Moreno and WR Demaryius Thomas round out the top choices to score the first TD at 9/1. Broncos QB Peyton Manning is the favorite in Super Bowl prop bets to win the MVP award at 11/10 followed by Seahawks QB Russell Wilson at 7/2 and Lynch at 4/1.
