The Seattle Seahawks are Super Bowl XLVIII champions after easily dismantling the Denver Broncos on Sunday night, but what about the prop bets that you may have decided to have a little fun with?

Since it is hard to keep track of prop bets during the game, we have gathered some information on how the bets played out and were paid out.

Here is a look at how some of the top prop bets played out on average, according to RJ Bell of Pregame.com:

Denver officially closed as a 2.5 point favorite over Seattle.

68% of bets were on Denver. 32% of bets on Seattle.

Underdog has covered 6 of last 7 Super Bowls.

Most points any Super Bowl underdog has ever won the game by (Seattle by 35)
Covered by most points of ANY Super Bowl team ever (Seattle covered spread by 37.5 points)
(Washington +3 winning by 32 points in Super Bowl XXII had held both records)

Seattle winning by between 34 and 38 points paid 100 to 1

Denver scoring exactly 8 points paid 225 to 1

First Score Safety paid 50 to 1. Sportsbooks lost big on this prop.

Malcolm Smith was such a big longshot to win MVP he did not have individual odds listed at sportsbooks
(like all unlisted players, he was included in the “field” – which paid out 20 to 1 on average)

Coin Flip was TAILS. After 48 Super Bowls: 24 Heads; 24 Tails

Early reports indicate Super Bowl XLVIII was the biggest bet football game EVER!
