Your Guide to the 2014 Super Bowl Prop Bets

Contribution by M Jones

It’s almost time for the big game, so people all across the country are finalizing super bowl squares and prop bets, because let’s be honest a big part of sports is the excitement over gambling.  Given that, I wanted to touch on the 15 most interesting prop bets that I came across this morning so people all around can consider making a few bucks on the super bowl while drinking and eating excessively tonight. 

If I was placing some cash on various prop bets tonight, these are the ones i would be interested in.

1 – MVP of the Super Bowl

  Peyton Manning (DEN) QB 11/10  
Russell Wilson (SEA) QB 15/4  
Marshawn Lynch (SEA) RB 4/1  
Percy Harvin (SEA) WR 10/1  
Knowshon Moreno (DEN) RB 18/1  
Richard Sherman (SEA) 20/1  
Demaryius Thomas (DEN) WR 33/1  
Earl Thomas (SEA) 33/1  
Eric Decker (DEN) WR 33/1  
Golden Tate (SEA) WR 33/1  
Wes Welker (DEN) WR 33/1  
Doug Baldwin (SEA) WR 40/1  
Julius Thomas (DEN) TE 40/1  
Kam Chancellor (SEA) 50/1  
Matt Prater (DEN) 75/1  
Champ Bailey (DEN) 100/1  
Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie (DEN) 100/1  
Michael Bennett (SEA) 100/1  
Montee Ball (DEN) RB 100/1  
Steven Hauschka (SEA) 100/1  
Danny Trevathan (DEN) 150/1  
Duke Ihenacho (DEN) 150/1  
Zach Miller (SEA) TE 150/1  
Field (Any Other Player) 28/1  

Best Bet – Peyton Manning, but the odds aren’t great for gambling purposes.  Therefore, I will go with Wes Welker at 33/1 as the goal is to make some cash.  He has a lot of pressure to redeem himself after having game-ending drop 2 seasons ago against the Giants with the Patriots.  Fitting if he is able to redeem himself in their home stadium.  The Seattle corner backs are great, but they will most likely be busy with Thomas and Decker on the outside so look for Wes to be running wild across the middle all night.   

2 – Who will the Super Bowl MVP of the mention first in his speech?

  Teammates 1/1  
God 3/1  
Fans 11/2  
Other Team or Player on Other Team 10/1  
Family 12/1  
Coach 14/1  
Owner 25/1  
Does not mention any of the above 9/2  

Best Bet – Probably God, but who knows there may be a wildcard who throws in a ‘Ba-Ba-Booey’.  If Wes Welker wins, he may even make a quick pitch to his New Jersey jump-off and try to set the tone for some post-game celebration action.  I will go with a surprise and say family at 12/1.

3 – Will Percy Harvin be injured in the game? (Must be injured and reported by broadcasters and not return to game)

  Yes +300  
No -500  

Best Bet – YES.  No doubt here.  This guy is the opposite of durable.  Great investment Seattle.

4 – How many times will Peyton Manning say “Omaha” during the game?

  O/U 27½  (-150)o

(+110)u

 
     

Best Bet – Under – Peyton is too smart to keep having the same pre-snap calls.  I am guessing he will go searching for some new advertisement dollars and replace ‘Omaha’ with ‘4 Loko’.

Four Loko

5 – Who will be seen first on TV after kickoff?

  Erin Andrews -140  
Pam Oliver EVEN  

Best Bet – Erin has all the TV mojo after the Sherman debacle.  Hopefully 50 Cent is not on the sideline this time.

6 – How many times will Eli Manning be shown on TV during the game?

  O/U (-250)o(+170)u  
     

Best Bet – Over.  The brother of Peyton will get some press and he has won 2 super bowls for the Giants so he will be all over the broadcast looking as dumb as he usually does.

7 – Will Knowshon Moreno cry during the singing of the National Anthem?

  Yes -120  
No -120  

Best Bet – Yes, no doubt here either.  This guy will be crying multiple times before kickoff.

 8 – Will Renee Fleming forget or omit at least 1 word of the official US National Anthem?

  Yes +300  
No -500  

Best Bet – Hell yeah, I am looking purely for some entertainment tonight.  Hopefully she has a full meltdown and Mo Cheeks steps in to help out again.  He has some free time, because on most nights he is not coaching the Pistons.

9 – How long will it take Renee Fleming to sing the official US National Anthem?

  Over 2 minutes 25 seconds +150  
Under 2 minutes 25 seconds -200  

Best Bet – Going on the assumption that i win bet #8, i say over.

10 – Who will have more Points in the game?

  Steven Hauschka (SEA) K EVEN  
Matt Prater (DEN) K -130  

Best Bet – In case the Super Bowl turns into a shitty game, you still have some action.  Hauschka will have more chances as the Seattle offense will not be putting up huge numbers. 

11 – Who will have more Receiving Yards in the game?

  Demaryius Thomas (DEN) WR -12½ (EVEN)  
Wes Welker (DEN) WR +12½ (-130)  

Best Bet – Purely rolling with Wes MVP pick at this point, given Sherman will probably be on Demaryius.

12 – Who will have more Rushing Yards in the 1ST QUARTER?

  Marshawn Lynch (SEA) RB -7½ (-125)  
Knowshon Moreno (DEN) RB +7½ (-105)  

Best Bet – This one is risky because it depends who gets the ball first.  I will say the safer bet is skittle man.

13 – Total TD Passes – Peyton Manning (DEN)

  0 10/1  
1 7/2  
2 2/1  
3 5/2  
4 9/2  
5 or more 10/1  

Best Bet – Somewhere in the 2-3 range.  Tough to call, i think Peyton will have a monster day so I’m rolling with 3.

14 – Longest Rush – Russell Wilson (SEA)

  O/U 12½ (-145)o(+115)u  
     

Best bet – Over.  If Seattle has ANY chance to win, he will have to get out and cause trouble on some designed running plays.

15 – Player to score the first TD in the game?

  Marshawn Lynch (SEA) RB 5/1  
Julius Thomas (DEN) TE 15/2  
Demaryius Thomas (DEN) WR 8/1  
Wes Welker (DEN) WR 8/1  
Eric Decker (DEN) WR 17/2  
Knowshon Moreno (DEN) RB 9/1  
Percy Harvin (SEA) WR 10/1  
Russell Wilson (SEA) QB 12/1  
Doug Baldwin (SEA) WR 16/1  
Golden Tate (SEA) WR 16/1  
Montee Ball (DEN) RB 16/1  
Jacob Tamme (DEN) TE 18/1  
Zach Miller (SEA) TE 18/1  
Peyton Manning (DEN) QB 40/1  
Robert Turbin (SEA) RB 40/1  
Field 15/2  
No TD scored in the game 100/1  

Best Bet – This is always one of my favorite bets to look at.  There are so many variables including who wins the kickoff, redzone play calling and so on.  I will go with a longshot for Montee Ball at the goal line for a potential nice payout of 16/1.
