Super Bowl 57 between the Philadelphia Eagles and Kansas City Chiefs is still a week away. Exotic Super Bowl props have become a longstanding NFL championship game tradition and this year is no exception. Seven days later, the major sportsbooks in America have already released their usual litany of betting props that you won’t find on almost any other game.
Below, see a not-quite-complete list of Exotic Super Bowl accessories.
Super Bowl national anthem ratings
|More than 119.5 seconds||-250|
|Less than 119.5 seconds||+200|
FanDuel Sportsbook has listed its usual prop on the duration of the National Anthem, which will be performed by Chris Stapleton this year. The plus is heavily favored at -250. Seven of the last ten Super Bowl anthems have exceeded two minutes.
Super Bowl draw odds
|Result of the draw||Odds|
The first game action that fans will be able to bet on is the outcome of the opening draw. Most sportsbooks have reduced the juice on the coin toss prop as a means of attracting business. This year, DraftKings Sportsbook has completely eliminated the juice. Bettors can bet heads or tails at +100, a true fifty-fifty proposition.
Over the previous 56 Super Bowls, Pile holds a slight 29-27 advantage, including 6-4 in the past decade.
Odds of a “Scorigami” (first final score in NFL history)
|NFL “Scorigami” result||Odds|
FanDuel Sportsbook has a prop that allows bettors to bet whether the Super Bowl 57 final score will be a unique final score in NFL history (dubbed a “Scorigami”). With over 100 years of history under its belt, the NFL has ticked Odds reflecting just how unlikely that is, with “Yes” checking in at a long +1800 (5.26% implied probability) and “No at -8000 (98.77% implied probability).
Pro Football Reference maintains a list of missing scores in NFL history. There are plenty of twos and fours on the list, which are possible but require one or more safeties, by far the least common scoring play in the NFL.
Odds of a “Scorigami” Super Bowl (first final score in Super Bowl history)
|Result of the Super Bowl “Scorigami”||Odds|
FanDuel also has a related accessory that narrows relevant history down to the previous 56 Super Bowls. The odds of this prop are reversed from the larger Scorigami prop: the odds of a repeat score are long +470, while the odds of a single final Super Bowl score are short -650.
The challenge of the first coach of Odds is successful
|First Coach Challenge Result||Odds|
DraftKings has posted a prop on the result of the first challenge issued by a head coach. The odds here favor passing the challenge slightly at -135 (57.45% implied probability). This same accessory is also in place at Barstool Sportsbook, where it is a choice with both options listed at -112. So if you want to bet on the success of the challenge, do it at Barstool. If you want to bet on the failure of the challenge, take the extra money from FanDuel.
Over/under TD first goalscorer’s shirt number
|More than 11.5||+105|
|Less than 11.5||-130|
DraftKings has a fun prop on the jersey number of the first player to score a touchdown, asking bettors to bet whether the number will be over or under 11.5.
Minus is a slight favorite at -130. The TD scorers most likely to wear jersey number 11 or less are: Eagles quarterback Jalen Hurts (#1), Eagles receivers Devonta Smith (#6) and AJ Brown (#11), carry ball from Chiefs Jerick McKinnon (#1) and Isiah Pacheco (#10) and Chiefs receivers Marquez Valdes-Scantling and JuJu Smith-Schuster (#9).
If unexpectedly no touchdown is scored in play, bets will again be refunded.
Chances of a kick (field goal or extra point) hitting the uprights
DraftKings has listed a prop indicating whether a kick — including field goals and extra run attempts — will hit the post. “No” is a heavy favorite here at -650 (86.67% implied probability) with “Yes” coming in at +450 (18.18%).
Odds on the color of Gatorade rain down on the winning trainer
The classic Gatorade color prop is also available from FanDuel, with orange being a slight favorite over yellow and blue. Blue has been the color of choice in each of the last two and four of the last eight.

|don’t stop the music||+400|
|That’s what you came for||+500|
|We found Love||+1000|
|run this town||+1000|
People who are only there for the halftime show can still join in the betting fun. FanDuel has listed the props for Rihanna’s first song during her halftime performance. There are no big favorites with three titles listed as +400 co-favorites.
There is also a prop on the last song before the show ends.
