Betting on Super Bowl Props in Kentucky

There are so many different ways to bet on the Super Bowl that it has become the most bet-on single event in all of sports. The point spread and moneyline are consistently among the most popular Super Bowl bets, but the Super Bowl props market is the one that makes all the headlines.

There are Super Bowl prop bets for almost everything that may or may not happen, on and off the field. You can bet on every player and team stat, who will win Super Bowl MVP, every aspect of the game itself, and the spectacle surrounding it. That means props on things like the coin toss, the halftime show, and what color Gatorade will be poured on the winning coach once the game is in hand.

Here’s how you can get in on all this prop betting action online in Kentucky, starting with Super Bowl LVIII in Las Vegas in February 2024.

What is a Super Bowl prop bet?

While most bets surround the result of a game, proposition bets allow you to wager on something happening in a game that doesn’t necessarily impact its outcome. Think of props as side bets. Most surround player or team performance and stats. For a typical NFL game, you might bet a prop asking how many yards a running back will put up or how many TD passes a quarterback will throw.

Super Bowl props are just props surrounding the Super Bowl. But there are so many that the Super Bowl props market has become its own betting category. All the typical NFL game props are available for the Super Bowl, but there’s even more. There’s a Super Bowl prop for every stat you can think of and many of the traditions on the edges of the game.

Most notable Super Bowl props ever

Here’s our list of the most notable NFL Super Bowl prop bets ever, including some you might be able to recreate for Super Bowl LVIII this season:

  • Super Bowl 50 was held at Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara, California, and you could get +1500 odds on an earthquake happening in the Bay Area during the game.
  • Donald Trump had a significant presence on Twitter during his presidency. After he sent out a single Tweet during the Super Bowl in 2018 and three in 2019, you could bet the over/under on 13.5 Trump Tweets during the Super Bowl in 2020.
  • Jennifer Lopez was the star of the Super Bowl LIV halftime show (alongside Shakira), and you could bet on Lopez making more or less than 2.5 costume changes during the show. The over paid off: J.Lo changed five times.
  • Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Joe Burrow smoked a celebratory cigar after the AFC Championship Game in 2022. The odds of him not smoking a cigar after Super Bowl LVI were at -700 before the game.
  • Super Bowl commercials cost millions to make and even more to air. The spots have become must-see TV. Ahead of Super Bowl LVI, the odds were +1500 on Budweiser being the brand behind the first commercial airing after kickoff.

Super Bowl player props vs. team props

While the Super Bowl features many non-traditional props, most prop bets for the Super Bowl still surround player and team stats. The difference between player and team props is that player props surround the performance of individual players, and team props surround team stats. Most of these props are over/under bets where you bet against a line set by sportsbooks.

For Super Bowl LVII, you could have bet an over/under on Kansas City Chiefs running back Isiah Pacheco gaining 40 yards in the Super Bowl. You could also have bet an over/under on the Chiefs gaining 100 yards on the ground as a team, or scoring at least one rushing touchdown.

Popular Super Bowl team props include: 

  • Team rushing/passing/total yards
  • Team scoring
  • Team accomplishments (e.g., safety, sacks, defensive TD)

Popular Super Bowl player props include: 

  • Starting QB passing yards
  • RB rushing yards
  • Anytime TD scorer

Super Bowl offensive props vs. defensive props

As you can see, most props concern scoring and other offensive numbers. However, there’s another side to the Super Bowl props coin: defensive performance. You can bet on Super Bowl props covering everything from the performance of individual defensive players to each team’s defensive stats.

You might bet on who will record the first sack, whether a specific player will record a sack at any time, or team tackles. Some props are even available on rushing, passing, and total yards allowed (by a team).

The most popular Super Bowl defensive props include:

  • Sacks
  • Tackles
  • Interceptions
  • Pick six
  • Defense scoring
  • Yards allowed

Crossover Super Bowl props

The NBA and NHL seasons are in full swing when the Super Bowl comes around. Both leagues typically host games on Super Bowl Sunday ahead of kickoff. That opens up crossover betting opportunities. You can bet on parlays that combine NBA, NHL, and Super Bowl game lines and props.

You can bet on something like LeBron James dropping 30, Connor McDavid recording a hat trick, and Patrick Mahomes putting up three or more passing TDs on Super Bowl Sunday.

Can you bet on the National Anthem and other non-game props in most states?

Exotic Super Bowl props make headlines every year, but bets on things like the length of the National Anthem or the number of costume changes in the halftime show are not available everywhere.

State gambling commissions and licensing authorities decide which props are allowed. Many say ‘no’ to anything that can be fixed. Others limit betting to only things that happen on the field.

Sportsbooks will apply for approval on every Super Bowl prop they can imagine. Even if some don’t get the thumbs up, others will. That means you’ll likely be able to bet on at least some off-the-field Super Bowl exotics in Kentucky.

Some of the more popular Super Bowl exotics include:

  • TD overturned by replay
  • Someone other than a QB recording a passing attempt
  • Whom the Super Bowl MVP winner will thank first
  • Coin toss result
  • Color of the Gatorade poured on the winning coach
