With Super Bowl XLVII right around the corner, the NFL betting community is salivating over the extensive team and player Props available in the sportsbook leading up to the big game. Although Super Bowl betting staples like “Odds to win MVP” and “Who will win the coin toss?” are live and ready for action, the list goes on.
First thing’s first. San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick leads the MVP Props with 8/5 odds of taking home the hardware. Considering that he’s the go-to threat on the favorite team that should come as no surprise.
Joe Flacco, the man under center for the Baltimore Ravens, sits second on the list with 11/4 odds. It’s no guarantee that Flacco will blow up for a monumental game under the spotlight, but critics have gotten pretty tired of ruling him out, only to have it come back in their faces.
From that point, the field opens up to Niners running back Frank Gore and Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis at 7/1, to Baltimore rushing threat Ray Rice at 12/1, and San Francisco wideout Michael Crabtree at 14/1.
Elsewhere in the sportsbook, NFL props exist for who will score the first touchdown and countless head-to-head matchups. Want to bet on virtually every category of Anquan Boldin’s stat line? Go right ahead.
Take a good long look at what’s available before the Super Bowl XLVII kicks off this Sunday.
