Super Bowl XLII Proposition Betting Market
by Karl Yu

The opening line has been released and to nobody’s surprise the New England Patriots have been anointed favorites by close to two TDs (12½-points to be exact) with the Over/Under set at 53½.

The Pats are 18-0 straight up but have dropped the cash in five straight against the spread and while Tom Brady and the boys will still see plenty of betting action, despite their mini slump, the Super Bowl is one of the most popular betting events for more than one reason.

The Super Bowl has become larger than life and sportsbooks offer more than just your run-of-the-mill betting lines—there is a market for proposition betting as well.

Bodog Props

Odds to win 2008 Super Bowl XLII - MVP

While high-profile players such as Peyton Manning and Tom Brady have grabbed the Pete Rozelle trophy the last five years, some relatively unknowns have been named the Super Bowl MVP.

Pats WR Deion Branch (Super Bowl XXXIX), Steelers WR Hines Ward (XL) and Bucs FS Dexter Jackson (XXXVII) have taken the award in that time span as well.

While the likes of Brady (-200) and Randy Moss (+700) from New England and Eli Manning (+350) and Plaxico Burress (+800) from New York are all options at Bodog, it might be worth bettors’ while to wager on a lesser known player.

The likes of DB Sam Madison or LB Antonio Pierce (both +4000) from the Giants or maybe WRs Jabar Gaffney or Donte’ Stallworth from the Pats (both +2000) are viable options.

2008 Super Bowl XLII - Highest Scoring Quarter

The last time these two teams met was in late-December and the New England Patriots, with the perfect regular season on the line, marched into the locker room at halftime down 21-16.

The second quarter saw both teams combine for 27-points scored; will history repeat itself at the Super Bowl?

Bodog is offering four options for its Highest Scoring Quarter prop with the 1st listed at +300, the 2nd at +165, the 3rd at +265 and the final quarter of regulation listed at +220.

Bet365 Props

Team to win Coin Toss

One of the hardest prop results to predict is the coin toss, after all what side the coin lands on is totally up to chance. As a result, Bet365 has heads and tails listed at -110 a piece.

Who will score first in 2nd half?

Another related prop whose outcome is dependent on the result of the coin toss is bet365’s “Who will score first in the 2nd half prop”: +140 if you think it’s the N.Y. Giants and -180 if you think it’ll be the Pats.

Team to commit 1st Penalty

As well as the New York Giants have been playing lately, they rank second amongst playoff teams in penalties, flagged 14 times for 119 yards during this postseason.

New England on the other hand, has only been flagged six times for 74 yards.

With the Giants the more undisciplined of the two, Bet365 is listing New York at -125 to commit the first foul while the perfect Pats are a -115 option.

Team to have 1st Coaches Challenge

No real stats to refer to here but New England’s Bill Belichick and New York’s Tom Coughlin are both -120 to be the first to throw the red flag. Props is offering the usual betting fare but is also offering something on the betting menu that many others are not.

The book is offering Cross Sports betting promotion including the following interesting bet options:

What Will Be More on Super Sunday? - Listed Players Must Play

Giants and Patriots points or Kobe Bryant’s Pts., Reb. and Ast. (Lakers-Wizards game)

The combined points scored by both the Giants and Pats is listed at -9½ and the combined number of points, rebounds and assists of L.A. Lakers star Kobe Bryant is listed at +9½.

Eli Manning’s passing yards or Lakers-Wizards Total

Sportsbook really likes the younger Manning in this one; Eli is favored at -22½ while the Lakers and Wizards are the +22½ underdog.

Super Bowl XLII’s longest TD pass or Total points scored by Northwestern hoops team.

Sportsbook thinks that the Northwestern hoops team will score more listing NW at -9½ and the longest TD at +9½. Props

If you think about it, the New York Giants are darn lucky to be in Super Bowl XLII.

Giants Kicker Lawrence Tynes missed two potential game winning field goals late in the game before kicking the actual winner in OT.

Pinnacle has a variety of FG props on the menu including:

Total number of field goals made by both teams

Over 3½ field goals is listed at +160 and Under 3½ is at -180.

Will both teams make a FG of 33+ yards in game?

If you think Yes wager at +155 and if you don’t think so wager at -175.

Sportsbooks always look forward to the Super Bowl as it is one of the most wagered on events of the year.

Over $100 million expected to pass between punters and bookies and if the forecasted handle is met, you can bet proposition wagers will factor into the equation.
