Breaking Down the Craziest Super Bowl 51 Prop Bets

Wackiest Ways To Bet on The Super Bowl 

Many will turn their eyeballs to The Super Bowl this year. A game focusing on a showdown between The New England Patriots and The Atlanta Falcons. One that will call The NRG Stadium in Houston, Texas home this year. Whether you attend the game there in person or watching it at home on FOX starting Sunday evening at 6:30 PM. Yet the most interesting aspect of the aspect of the game involves Las Vegas and certain other places. Such as who certain gamblers will bet on. And even more so, WHAT they will bet on!

William Hill U.S. reveals one bet involves how many times college basketball player Grayson Allen will foul in a game. One pitting his team Duke University’s Blue Devils vs. University of Pittsburgh’s Panthers. Those betting are asked to put up $100 in order to possibly win $155. Or how much The New England Patriots’ own running back LeGarrette Blount will yard on his first rush. Conversely, those gambling are being asked to bet $155 for the chance to get $100. Another focuses on how many three pointers pro basketball player Stephen Curry will make for The Golden State Warriors. At least in regards to their game with The Sacramento Kings. Or how many receptions Devonta Freeman will get.

Another bet is being placed between Tiger Woods’ 18 hole score in the Omega Dubai Desert Classic and The Patriots’ quarterback Tom Brady’s passing. This one is being covered by The Westgategate Las Vegas Superbook. The ratio is 18.5 in favor of Woods. Another bet The Superbook profiles is how many goals the forthcoming pro hockey team The Vegas Golden Knights will score in their game in the season 2017-2018 season. As opposed to total field goals both Super Bowl teams make in this year’s game. The odds are 110 favoring The Patriots and The Falcons. Yet 130 is held against The Vegas Golden Knights.

SportsBetting Dime reports a 7 to 3 odd that a FOX reply will show NFL official Mike Pereira will be wrong on the first coach’s challenge. Another reveals the bets placed the color of Lady Gaga’s hair when she appears onstage during the halftime show. The wager is 2 to 3 that it will be blond. While there is also 3 to 1 odds that it will be brown. There are those who bet 10 to 1 that it will be pink. Yet 14 to 1 bets it will be the same color as the field! A bet reported in Sportsbook.ag involves whether the rating for this year’s Super Bowl will over or under 47.5 million viewers. Sportsbook also features a debate over the MVP will thank first. Bets are placed 6 to 1 that it will either be the coach or owner of the team. A high 275 who wager he will not thank or mention anyone on the list. A 4 to 1 over believing he will either thank his family, the fans, or the city of their home team. Another high bet of 225 predicts he will thank God. There are even one thousand to one odds it will President Donald Trump! One last high bet of 130 believes he will thank his teammates.

Bovada reveals a bet over whether or not players of both teams will kneel during The National Anthem. There are 200 gambles who feel they will yet 300 feels they will not. Another wager this publication reports is what will be higher on Super Bowl Sunday? The outcome of the wager is 170 in favor of Tom Brady rushing yards. As opposed to to 250 against the length of President Donald Trump being interviewed by Bill O’Reilly.

Who is Going to Win Super Bowl 51?

Super Bowl 51 is almost upon us and two of the more explosive teams are set to face off in less than a week. While any football game can turn around quickly on a pick 6 or kickoff return, the New England Patriots have been favorites since the teams were announced and with good reason. While it may be tempting to choose the Atlanta Falcons to pull off the upset, and MVP candidate Matt Ryan and All-pro receiver Julio Jones are nothing to scoff at, the Patriots seem like they have the hardware to win yet another Super Bowl. Here is why they will be hard to beat in Super Bowl 51.

Tom Brady

After the Deflategate scandal that marred the 2014 Super Bowl victory and allegations of cheating that have followed the Patriots since they defeated the St. Louis Rams and Marshall Faulk, Tom Brady was suspended for four games to start the 2016 season. The Patriots ended up with a 3 and 1 record during this period and showed how deep the team is, even without Tom Brady. While Jimmy Garafalo was solid with the Patriots, they truly came into form with Tom Brady at the head and only lost two other games all season.

Tom Brady came into the season with a monkey on his back and with a determination to win after being sidelined. If it weren’t for the time he spent on the sideline, Brady would likely be the MVP favorite, an honor that is now with the Falcons’ Quarterback Matt Ryan. Still Brady seams to be seriously devoted to pushing his team to yet another Super Bowl win and overtaking Joe Montana as the quarterback with the most victories in NFL history. Betting against Brady and his drive and experience is not a smart bet.

Bill Belichick

Belichick and the Patriots have already cemented themselves as the first NFL Dynasty of the 21st Century. Always serious and with his eye on the prize, Belichick will have his team and players prepared for the big game and focused on not squandering another Superbowl chance, like he did when he faced the New York Giants twice. Expect Belichick to have a few tricks up his sleeve but also to focus a strategy on taking away the first option for the Falcons, Julio Jones. While Jones is hard to stop, other Falcons players will have to step up (maybe Taylor Gabriel or Mohamed Sanu), and Belichick will likely have an answer for them. Never bet against Belichick in the post season, unless Eli Manning is there of course.

Experience in the Post Season

The Patriots are experienced in the playoffs and have won the AFC East in practically every season over the past decade. While Bill Belichick has discounted the role that experience has in the playoffs and Super Bowl, saying that anyone can step up and produce in a game. Still experience in playoffs and big games do matter, particularly when things go against a team in the early going. The Patriots have the experience to overcome an early deficit and also the experience to exploit an early advantage, while the Falcons lack of experience may show up in an inopportune moment and cost them a potential victory.

Defense Wins Championships

The Atlanta Falcons have an explosive offensive, perhaps the best in the league with the best receiver in Julio Jones. Brady has had to make do with more pedestrian receivers since Rob Gronkowski has been injured and is going to miss the Super Bowl. While the Atlanta Falcons have the top offense, the Patriots defense allowed the fewest points in the league in 2016. While New England may not have any standout names on defense, the unit is well rounded with Devin Mccourty, Donta Hightower, and Trey Flowers.

What the Patriots lacks in star power it makes up in versatility. The Patriots can cover tight ends and pass catching running backs with safety Patrick Chung, or can play a more conservative defense with their big nickel package that has three safeties drop back into coverage. This adds versatility when covering a complex offense like the Falcons have and may propel the Patriots to the Super Bowl podium. As the Denver Broncos showed last year, defense wins championships and the Patriots have the definitive advantage here.

The Super Bowl Podium

All of this means that we will likely be seeing that one thing that Roger Goodell likely doesn’t want to see; Tom Brady getting another Super Bowl victory right after the Deflategate fiasco. The Patriots will prove their reputation and will show how the Brady and Belichick combo is the best in NFL history. The game may not even be competitive if the Patriots manage to get an early lead and convert some early opportunities that they exploit for a blowout win.
