There are tons of wagers available to keep fans interested in all different parts of the big game and more on Sunday. Courtesy of odds posted by Bovada, four fun prop bets are noted below with a suggestion on the direction to go.
First, here are two related to the NFC Champion Seattle Seahawks.
How many times will "12th man" be said during the game?
The over/under is set at 2 and you have to wager 130 to win 100 if you choose the over, and 110 to win 100 if you go with the under.
Before locking up a decision, the wager includes some notes from the Bovada site: From kick off until final whistle. Live pictures only, any taped pictures or past video does not count towards wager. Half time does not count towards wager. Must clearly say 12th man.
The phrase 12th man is so synonymous with the Seahawks that it’s hard to imagine it won’t come up at least early and again late if the game is tight. The choice here is to take the OVER.
How many times will "Beast Mode" be said during the game?
The over/under is set at 2 and you have to wager 150 to win 100 if you select the under, and 100 to win 110 if you go with the over.
Again some notes from Bovada: From kick off until final whistle. Live pictures only, any taped pictures or past video does not count towards wager. Half time does not count towards wager. Must clearly say Beast Mode.
Although the live pictures only part of the wager makes it a little tougher to define as a lot of the time he’s being shown and talked about could be during a replay of a previous play, I’m still a little surprised that the under is getting more respect here than the over. The play is the OVER because of how many times Marshawn Lynch is expected to touch the ball during the game.
Now, two for the AFC Champion Denver Broncos.
Will Wes Welker drop a pass in the game?
You’re getting better odds that he won’t drop a pass as you have to wager 130 to win 100 if you’re going with Yes as the answer to the question, while a wager of 110 to win 100 is needed if the answer is no.
Welker nearly catches everything that comes in his direction and the reason this is even on the table is because of a famous drop while with the New England Patriots in Super Bowl XLVI. He won’t make that mistake twice on the big stage. The way to go is NO.
Will Peyton Manning throw a pick 6?
The money line favors it not happening. A wager of 600 to win 100 is needed for the no, while a 100 wager to win 350 is available for the yes.
It was Super Bowl XLIV when Manning was intercepted by Tracy Porter who returned it for a score that locked up the championship for the New Orleans Saints. Four years, four neck surgeries and one team later, Manning is back in the big game for the third time, trying for his second win.
Turnovers must be avoided to win it all and turnover that results in an immediate score could prove to be the difference in a contest projected to be tight. Manning has lived this mistake once. He won’t live it again on Sunday.
It’s not worth a lot, but the safe and right play is NO.
