Super Bowl LII is more than just the side and total bets, as there are hundreds of props available on the game. One of the most popular Super Bowl props every year is the prop on who will score the first touchdown of the game. It is a prop bet that gives a decent return, as the favorite is Rob Gronkowski at odds of 8-1, while a number of players are listed at double-digit odds including Tom Brady at odds of 50-1. Let’s look at some of the most popular Super Bowl props.

P Dorsett (NE) +5000

No Touchdown +10000

There is no question that the value on this prop is on the Philadelphia players. Gronkowski is the favorite but he hasn’t even been cleared to play yet, so it is hard to make a case for him at odds of +800. Amendola could have the best value of any New England player at odds of +1300. Amendola has picked up a reputation of being an excellent player in the playoffs. He scored two touchdowns in New England’s win over Jacksonville two weeks ago.

If you think the Eagles will score the first TD, and that would not be a surprise considering New England is a notoriously slow starting team, then double-digit odds look attractive. Blount is the short yardage back and he is listed at +1500. Smith is the deep threat and he is listed at +2500.

Other Popular Props

Two of the most popular Super Bowl props every year are “Will there be overtime?” and “Will there be a safety?” The odds on each prop are +600 on the Yes and -900 on the No. It should be noted that bettors who have been playing the overtime prop finally got paid last year, as the game between Atlanta and New England went into overtime, the first time in Super Bowl history a game has gone into overtime. The safety prop paid out big from 2012-2014, with all three games including a safety.

Not to be left out as a popular Super Bowl prop is who will win the Super Bowl LII MVP. Brady is the obvious choice at odds-on, while Nick Foles is the second choice at +300. All of the other players are listed at double-digit odds, but historically quarterbacks have won most of the MVP’s, taking the award a total of 28 times. The next most popular position is running back, as they have won the award seven times.
