Where things really get fun, however, are the offerings for the bettors among us. Some of the unique Super Bowl wagers like coin toss results are a well-loved tradition. Picking some prop bets offers even the most casual fans to add a little juice to the game and some fun ways to pay close attention to every last play.
5 Most Fun Prop Bets
1. First Touchdown Scorer: Cooper Kupp +500
There's no question that touchdowns are the most fun part of a football game, even for the diehard expert of the X's and O's. The first touchdown scorer prop leads our list of the five most fun Super Bowl 56 props. We've listed Cooper Kupp here, but simply to show that the favorite in this prop has longshot +490 odds. Only five players have better than +1000 odds, meaning big payouts if you happen to make the right pick. Kupp is a safe pick thanks to his league-leading 16 TD catches, but the exhilaration of cashing in on +490 odds or longer is a great way to start the game.
2. First Gatorade Color Dunked Over Winning Coach
This may be considered a cliche, but it'd be a shame to leave off the list. Betting on the Gatorade color gives fans a reason to watch this game until the final whistle, even if it's a blowout. It's more likely we're going to see a close game, and who doesn't love the idea of Sean McVay or Zac Taylor getting dosed with a big bucket of Gatorade. FanDuel gives sports bettors six different colors to choose from, so you've got options. Add in the fact that you can make some money off this longtime tradition, it's a win-win for everyone at your Super Bowl party.
3. Most Receiving Yards - Ja'Marr Chase vs Cooper Kupp
Cooper Kupp and Ja'Marr Chase finished the regular season ranked first and fourth, respectively, in receiving yards. The pair combined for 3,402 yards in the regular season and followed that up with a combined 665 yards in the playoffs. You better believe both leading wideouts are going to have their fingerprints all over the final result in this one, and this is a fun stat to track throughout the big game. Plus, who doesn't love seeing a couple of elite wide receivers make big play after big play.
4. Will There be a Fake Punt or FG?
FanDuel Sportsbook is offering bettors +770 odds that we see a fake punt or field goal. Now, this is considered more of a football rarity, but the odds on this bet are still juicy enough to entice some. If we're being honest, any fake punt or field goal in the Super Bowl is absolute pandemonium. It's already a fun event if it happens, and think about making a $5 bet to pay out $43.50.
5. Player to Record Most Tackles + Assists
Aside from big hits and turnovers, it's hard for a very casual football fan to pay close attention to defense. We understand that. But, the tackles prop is a fun way for those casual fans to have a vested interest on every single down in this game. FanDuel Sportsbook as plus odds for 21 defenders to win this prop bet, with the favorite Logan Wilson coming in at just +290. That's a decent payout for a favorite and gives us a reason to pay attention to every single play in this highly-anticipated matchup.
