Laugh all you want but the fact remains that one of the most popular exotic prop bets for the Super Bowl at offshore sportsbooks remains the opening coin toss. Retired NHL superstar Wayne Gretzky’s wife Janet made her fame at betting on this very prop a few years ago. As much fame in fact as her Playboy cover shoot. You can get two different wagers on the opening coin toss in fact. Heads and Tails both opened as a -102 choice for the coin toss to start the game. The Eagles and Patriots also opened as co-favorites at -105 to win the coin toss.
Another list of highly popular exotic props for action at GTBets Sportsbook has to do with scoring. The exotic props for scoring begins with what kind of score will be first. A touchdown as the first score of Super Bowl II opened as a -155 choice and popular betting favorite. Any other score, (field goal or safety), opened as a +125 choice for the Super Bowl’s first score. An intriguing exotic prop that will garner plenty of action is whether or not either team will score within the first five and a half minutes of the game. A bet on yes that a team will score in the first five and a half minutes of the game opened at +115. No is the favorite at -145 for neither team to score in the first five and a half minutes of the game.
Another exotic prop that will garner plenty of attention is the double result wager. This is where Super Bowl LII bettors can wager on the team that wins the first half combined with the team that will win the second half. The two long shots for the double result wager capture immediate attention. A tie at halftime and the Eagles winning the second half opened as a +1400 selection. The Patriots winning the second half combined with a first half tie was a +1200 choice. You can get the Eagles winning both halves at +300. The Patriots winning both halves opened at -125 as potential overlays. Philadelphia winning the first half and New England winning the second half opened as a +550 choice. New England winning the first half and Philadelphia winning the second half opened at +575.
