The Philadelphia Eagles and the New England Patriots will clash in Super Bowl LII at Minneapolis. Check out the many prop bets associated with the showdown.

If it is Super Bowl Sunday and the combination of Bill Belichick and quarterback Tom Brady are involved, you can bet it will be a close game. This marks the eighth such contest for the legendary combo. Win or lose, all seven contests were close and came down to the final moments.

The New England Patriots won Super Bowls XXXVI (3), XXXVIII (3), XXXIX (3), XLIX (4) and LI (6) by a combined 19 points. They lost Super Bowls XLII (3) and XLVI (4) – both to the New York Giants – by a combined seven points. At the moment, the defending Super Bowl champions are 5-point favorites over the NFC champion Philadelphia Eagles to capture their third title in four years.

There are those who will plunk down some loose change or big bucks on such mundane things such as the spread and/or the over/under (48). But there are the always-entertaining prop bets that seem to get more interesting every year. The fine crew at SportsBookReview have put together quite the comprehensive list.

Such wagers on who will be the game’s Most Valuable Player and which team will win the coin toss. Will it be heads or tails? What about which team scores first and who scores the first touchdown of the game. All are admittedly pretty tame. But wait, there’s a whole lot more.

What color will the Gatorade be for the game? How long will the National Anthem take? There are even some prop bets on Pink, who will sing “The Star-Spangled Banner” before the game. Want to wager on what color lipstick she will be wearing?
