Prior to this Sunday's Super Bowl 51 between the NFC Champion Atlanta Falcons and the AFC Champion New England Patriots, many will place bets on which team will win the year's biggest sporting event. While those bets are nice, prop bets often rule the Super Bowl gambling landscape.
Some of the most interesting prop bets pertain to the announcers of the Super Bowl, FOX's Joe Buck and Troy Aikman, who will call the game's action.
More prop bets include: whether Buck will have facial hair or not for the Super Bowl, what pattern ties Buck and Aikman will wear, what the primary color of each of the announcers ties will be, whether Aikman will reference his Super Bowl experience and more.
Also, the Super Bowl is probably the perfect time to drop money that you probably shouldn't but would like to on whether FOX officiating expert Mike Pereira will get the first challenge correct or not.
Perhaps the most interesting storyline surrounding this game is the chance that Tom Brady will win his fifth championship in the same season that he was suspended for his role in Deflategate. In that event, commissioner Roger Goodell, who is probably the most hated man in all of New England will be forced to hand Brady the Lombardi Trophy, a moment that many fans are hoping to see. Currently the odds stand at 8/1, per SportsBettingDime, on whether Buck, Aikman or any sideline reporter will mention the league's most annoying scandal.
Of course, you could simply bet on who will win the MVP or who will have the most passing yards in the game, something also available on the site. Winning a small fortune off of a prop bet pertaining to Joe Buck would be a much more interesting story to tell, though.
