Quarterbacks Tom Brady and Patrick Mahomes go head to head on Feb. 7 in a battle for Super Bowl supremacy.
Whether you’re a diehard Tampa Bay Buccaneers fan, a staunch Kansas City Chiefs supporter, or just watching for fun, Tennessee sportsbooks are offering countless ways to get in on the wagering action.
What Super Bowl prop bets are available in Tennessee?
As the biggest betting event of the year, Super Bowl season is a time when sportsbooks pull out all the stops.
Bettors throughout the US are projected to wager over $500 million on the game.
Betting on the super bowl includes the traditional moneyline, spread, and totals wagers. There’s also a limitless number of prop bets available.
Each sportsbook offers a unique variety of betting options. Seven sportsbooks are currently licensed in Tennessee, though only four will be operational for the Super Bowl:
Tennesseans won’t have access to any super eccentric markets, such as what color of Gatorade will be poured on the winning coach or who the winning Super Bowl MVP will thank first.
Nevertheless, the number of items to wager on in the Volunteer State is far from minimal.
Betting options begin with the coin toss and extend to the very last moments of the game.
Not only can bettors wager on the outcome of the coin toss, but they can go a step further with wagers on which team will win the coin toss and whether or not a player will call heads or tails correctly.
Once the game kicks off, users can wager on game lines and player props as well.
Parlay picks and team props are available, too.
DraftKings’ novelty prop bets
For the most outlandish prop bets, head over to the Novelty Props section at DraftKings.
Trick Play Specials
The Trick Play Specials section features wagers on the total number of players to attempt and complete a pass.
Current odds look like this:
- Total players to attempt a pass, including overtime – Over 2.5 (+165)/Under 2.5 (-215)
- Total players to complete a pass, including overtime – Over 2.5 (+250/Under 2.5 (-335)
If you are a fan of trick plays and think Andy Reid or Bruce Arians has one up their sleeves, this might be the prop for you.
Out-of-the-box Super Bowl prop bets
The humorously named Fat Man TD prop allows users to wager on whether an offensive or defensive lineman will score a touchdown.
Yes is sitting at +2000 with no at -10000.
One of the more out-of-the-box props involves player jerseys. Bettors can wager on the over/under for the jersey number of the first and last player to score a touchdown.
Not all field goals and point after attempts are pretty. Many this season have been close calls, with the uprights either making or breaking a game.
The Doink Special on DraftKings allows users to bet on whether any kick attempt hits the uprights or crossbar.
If you have a feeling nerves may get the better of one of the kickers and lead to some shaky field goal attempts, you can get +375 odds that the football will doink the posts at some point in the game.
If any of those options look appealing to you, sign up for a DraftKings account today and get a match bonus plus a Super Bowl odds boost.
