Super Bowl 58 kicks off this Sunday, Feb. 11, at 6:30 p.m. ET in Las Vegas on CBS and Paramount+. Reigning Super Bowl champ Kansas City Chiefs takes on the San Francisco 49ers in a highly anticipated rematch of Super Bowl 54, which ended with Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes raising his first Super Bowl trophy.

Sportsbooks are packed with betting markets for the big game. With so many prop bets available, the question is which ones offer the best value to bettors. Let’s look at the most fun Super Bowl novelty props available.

Super Bowl Betting: Best Novelty Prop Bets

Here are my top 10 Super Bowl novelty props from top sports betting apps and how to bet on them. These novelty props are widely available, but state restrictions may apply for individual wagers. That means certain novelty props are not available in your regional sportsbook.

Before you dive in, make sure to check out our sportsbook promos. Several incredible Super Bowl bonuses and promotions are currently available via Gaming Today’s exclusive sign-up links and promo codes.

1. BetRivers: Will the game end with a Scorigami? Yes (+2000) No (-10000)

A scorigami refers to a final score that has never been recorded in NFL history. It’s far from likely that Super Bowl 58 ends in a score we’ve never seen before, but Super Bowl scorigamis are not unprecedented (the Seahawks’ 43-8 win over the Broncos in Super Bowl 48 was the most recent).

The verdict? Yes (+2000) 

Why not?

2. DraftKings: Which team will first use a coach’s challenge? Chiefs (-115) 49ers (-105)

DraftKings lets you bet on who will throw the first coach’s challenge. Per Pro Football Reference, Chiefs coach Andy Reid has not been shy with his challenge flag the last two postseasons, using it four times last postseason (and going 1-for-4), including an unsuccessful attempt in the Super Bowl.

The verdict? Chiefs (-115)

San Francisco coach Kyle Shanahan has made just three challenges this season, including none in the playoffs. The Chiefs are the bet to make here, even as the favorites at the slightly shorter odds.

3. DraftKings: Jersey number of 1st TD Scorer — Over 22.5 (-115) Under 22.5 (-105)

DK has a fun bet available regarding the first player to get into the end zone. First TD scorer applies to who enters the end zone with the ball (so if Brock Purdy or Patrick Mahomes strikes first through the air, this bet will settle based on their receiver).

The verdict? Under 22.5 (-105)

Between what Mahomes (No. 15) and Purdy (No. 13) can do in the red zone with their legs, and the fact that Chiefs RB Isiah Pacheco (No. 10), Chiefs WR Rashee Rice (No. 4), and 49ers WR Brandon Aiyuk (No. 11) all would cash Under 22.5, that’s the move at nearly even money.

4. FanDuel: Color of First Gatorade Poured on Winning Head Coach

Betting which color of Gatorade the winning coach gets doused in is fun but challenging, reflecting the prices of the various colors of Gatorade you can choose. At FanDuel, orange (+300) is the favorite, followed by Blue (+370), Lime (+390), and Purple (+390).

The verdict? Orange (+300)

The favorite feels like the best play here. Bonus recommendation: this is a great play to devote a half-unit or less — even on a list full of speculative bets, this one relies as much on blind chance as any.

5. DraftKings: Travis Kelce 20+ 1st Quarter Receiving Yards — Yes (-110)

The Chiefs’ top pass-catcher led the way for Kansas City last week, and he figures to be a focal point for Mahomes again in the Super Bowl.

The verdict? Yes

Don’t be surprised to see Mahomes come up with a big catch or two in the first quarter to quickly cash this bet.

6. DraftKings: What Will Happen First — Touchdown vs Field Goal Made? Touchdown (-165) Field Goal Made (+130)

DraftKings heavily favors a touchdown happening before a field goal, giving a bet on a kicker the first points good value.

The verdict? Field Goal Made (+130)

Both these teams are solid defensively, which should make a cautious approach by either or both offenses in the early going a solid possibility.

7. FanDuel: Will There be a 2-point Conversion Attempt? Yes (+128) No (-158)

This is a straightforward bet with interesting odds. Yes, it is priced favorably enough that it’s worth wagering, especially a tiny quantity like a half-unit. Andy Reid is famously not risk-averse, so Reid’s involvement alone makes +128 a solid price here.

The verdict? Yes (+128)

8. Bet365: Longest TD Scored – Over or Under 37.5 Yards — Over (-115) Under (-115)

Both defenses will likely try to keep everything in front of them, which makes the Under the play.

The verdict? Under (-115)

The Niners gave up a 42-yard TD run on a reverse by Lions WR Jameson Williams early in the NFC Championship Game, and the Chiefs allowed a 30-yard touchdown pass in their conference championship win over Baltimore. Still, I don’t expect either defense to have those kinds of breakdowns at this stage.

9. BetRivers: Will there be an octopus?

BetRivers has another unique market; octopus refers to a player catching or rushing for a touchdown, then scoring the ensuing 2-point conversion. Note: This works like ATTD markets in that a QB is not considered the TD or 2-point scorer on a passing play.

The verdict? No (-3335)

Call me a cynic, but any prop with a price like +1200 is too good to be true. A “no” bet here won’t be lucrative, but it (probably) won’t be a loser.

10. DraftKings: Coin Toss — Heads (+100) Tails (+100)

I’m not sure how analytics feels about this, but tails never fails, right?

The verdict? Tails (+100)

To add a bit more ground-breaking coin flip analysis, even money for a bet with a 50% chance of cashing is not bad!
