Time for Props
Anytime Super Bowl props are brought up, it always begins with snide comments about the opening coin toss, which by the way is at even money with the offshore bookmaker for both heads and tails and for the Patriots and or Eagles to win the coin toss. A more serious and popular approach to props betting always begins with the quarterbacks. Nick Foles opened up at an over under of 246.5 yards passing at -115 either way. A total of 22 pass completions was listed for the Eagles quarterback at -115 over and -115 under.
New England’s Tom Brady opened at 294.5 yards passing for the game at -115 over and -115 under. A total of 26.5 completions are on the board for the Pats signal caller at -115 over and -115 under. Brady is a huge favorite over Foles at -42.5 more yards passing in the head to head quarterback matchup at -115 for either player. That number is reflective of the powerful “brand” that Brady is and the obvious public sentiment for him. Its obviously hard for gamblers to wager money on a backup quarterback over the five time Super Bowl champion.
There are a multitude of touchdown props with the betting odds for the Super Bowl. Fans can have their choice the longest touchdown play of the game at 44.5 yards, -115 over and -115 under. Both teams are at 5.5 for combined touchdowns in the game with -115 over and -115 under. The first touchdown of the game is favored to be a pass at -160 with a rush at +130.
And for those who cannot get enough of the coin toss, you can lay -115 on the team that wins the coin toss winning the game or go contrarian at -115 for the coin toss winner losing the game.
Matchup to Watch
This offshore bookmaker matchup comes down to the Man of the Hour, Tom Brady. Brady brings the history of success and name recognition that Nick Foles cannot hope to match. But what Foles can bring to the props betting table is the potential for superior betting value.
