Super Bowl LV between the Kansas City Chiefs and Tampa Bay Buccaneers is expected to be the most bet on sporting event by gamblers in history. Most bettors will likely place their bets on one of the two teams to win the game outright (which is called betting the money line), others will bet with the point spread.
Currently, the Chiefs are 3.5 point favorites to defeat Tom Brady and the Buccaneers. Other gamblers may choose to place a wager on the total points scored, often referred to as the "over/under." Currently, that betting line is 56.5 total points scored.
Now here comes the fun part:
There are hundreds of prop bets that gamblers can place on the big game on sites like Bovada, BetMGM, or betonline.ag.
The top three prop bets that are currently receiving the most action (according to Bovada) are as follows:
1. Who will be the Super Bowl MVP?
2. Will the opening coin toss be heads or tails?
3. How long will the duration of the national anthem be?
According to Bovada, this is the first time in many years that the coin toss was not the most bet upon prop bet on the board. However, with less than 24 hours before the game begins and the national anthem is sung, more bettors could place wagers on the coin toss.
With that said, there are literally hundreds of prop bets on the board that gamblers can place wagers on. Those range from game-related bets like which team will score the first touchdown, to more outrageous bets like will musician The Weeknd have bandages on his face when he performs the Super Bowl halftime show?
