It all comes down this — a season-ending race at the Breeders’ Cup World Champions. The event marks the culmination of a wacky year in horse racing for jockeys, trainers, spectators, and bettors alike. Here’s a guide to betting the 2019 race with odds, tips, and free picks!
Top Super Bowl Prop Bets
Super Bowl 53 promises to be an instant classic between Los Angeles and New England. If you’re still iffy on who to wager on, make sure to read our betting advice article.
But when it comes to Super Bowl prop bets, it’s not nearly as simple. For instance, BetOnline has more than 100 propositions available, ranging from the Super Bowl coin toss to Super Bowl commercials to actual in-game scenarios. However, these are the top-five worth betting on:
Odds To Win Super Bowl MVP
This one comes down to who you think will win the game. If it’s New England, then the no-brainer bet is on Tom Brady (+110). He’s won four of the Patriots’ five Super Bowl MVP honors before, and well, he’s the GOAT.
But if you read our betting picks story, you know we think the Rams will prevail. In that event, your options are Jared Goff (+225), Todd Gurley (+1100), Aaron Donald (+1800), and old man CJ Anderson (+2500), among others.
For us, getting Gurley at that incredible value is too good to pass up. No one really knows why he’s been absent in Los Angeles’ offense as of late or if he’s even healthy. Nonetheless, he remains the Rams’ biggest threat by a longshot. You have to believe Sean McVay will find a way to give his best player a number of opportunities come game time.
Pick: Todd Gurley (+1100)
Length of US National Anthem By Gladys Knight
At this point, betting on the national anthem Super Bowl is a must. The over/under on length is set at one minute and fifty seconds with both sides getting -120 odds.
Believe it or not, a growing trend among anthem singers is a lengthy run time. Each of the last six singers have gone over 1:50 during their anthem performance. This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for Knight, and you have to think she’ll be soaking up every second of it.
Pick: Over 1:50 (-120)
Adam Levine Wear A Hat Start of Halftime Show
The Super Bowl Halftime Show will be a joint performance by Adam Levine, Travis Scott, and Atlanta local Big Boi from Outcast. It’s a star-studded affair, but all eyes will be on Levine from Maroon 5 fame. You can wager on whether Levine will take a knee during his show, what color shoe he’ll wear, or the more simple, will he wear a hat from the get-go — yes (+200) or no (-330)
Has anyone seen Levine’s hair before? If you haven’t, he maintains a beautiful mane despite being 39 years old. That’s an asset you don’t want to cover up.
Pick: No (-330)
First Interception Thrown
Simple enough, right? Who will chuck it to the opposite team first — Goff (-145) or Brady (+125)?
Including playoffs, both quarterbacks have thrown 13 picks a piece this season. However, on the biggest stage, we’re more confident Brady can protect the ball. This will be his ninth Super Bowl appearance, so you won’t have to worry about early-game jitters with him unlike Goff. In Super Bowl matchups, Brady has thrown just five interceptions before.
Plus, Goff is prone to errant throws against high-caliber teams. Ten of his 13 interceptions this year came against playoff qualifiers. There’s reason to believe a mastermind like Bill Belichick will try to confuse him early in an effort to rattle the young signal caller.
Pick: Jared Goff (-145)
Highest Scoring Quarter
Considering this will be New England’s fourth Super Bowl game in five seasons, recent history is important to keep top of mind. In each of the three previous games, the second quarter was the most high-scoring quarter with a total of 74 points. The runner-up was the fourth quarter at 52 points — a 22-point difference.
We’re going to ride that trend here. After a first quarter where both teams will likely feel each other out, the points will fly off the board in quarter two.
Pick: Second Quarter (+175)
