Will The Coin Toss Be Heads Or Tails
Super Bowl Odds: Heads -105, Tails -105
The coin toss is a surprisingly popular pick for Super Bowl prop betting but at the end of the day, it is just a coin flip. It is just a 50-50 proposition so really, you’re guess is about as good as it gets. There is no real way to handicap this except to guess.
As the boys from the NFL Network say – and so do a lot of players in the NFL: “Tails never fails”. If you’re going to pick, go with tails.
Which Quarter Will Have The Most Points Scored
Super Bowl Prop Betting Odds: 2nd Quarter +150, 4th quarter +200, 1st quarter +280, 3rd quarter +300
It’s always tough to predict which quarter will have the most points scored but if you are going to play the historical and statistical advantages, you would have to go with the second quarter.
In the first quarter, most teams usually feel each other out and while everyone is expecting a shootout in this game, it may take them some time to get acclimated.
The second quarter is when the fireworks should be on display.
Will There Be A Score In The First 7 Minutes, 30 Seconds
US Sportsbook Review: Yes -240, No +200
This is a prop that comes around every year and while most people like to be on ‘yes’, it doesn’t always come through because this is such a big game and both teams show some nerves early on.
At the same time, the Indianapolis Colts have been there before and they are going to move the ball up and down the field. Neither team has a particularly good running game and both teams pass very well, so a score is to be expected in the early moments of this game.
Will There Be A Score In The Last Two Minutes Of The First Half
NFL Picks: Yes -300, No +240
Following up with the last prop, both teams move the ball well and both teams will be looking to make an impression at the end of the first half to go into the locker room with a head of steam. We saw the Colt score in about 30 seconds in their two-minute drill, so they are more than capable and the Saints had the No. 1 offense in the NFL, so they can easily get a score in the last two minutes of the half.
