Harbaugh family Super Bowl prop bets

bridges-superbowl

The latest point spread for Super Bowl XLVII currently has Jim Harbaugh’s San Francisco 49ers as four-point favorites over his brother John’s Baltimore Ravens.

Prop bets exist on a weekly basis throughout the football season but during the Super Bowl, a lot of additional items are announced for people to place their hard earned money on. For example, you can already bet on Beyonce’s outfit top color (white is the favorite, pink is the longshot), hair style, or even if her husband Jay-Z will join her on stage.

Even a bet exists as to whether she’ll admit to lip synching during President Barak Obama’s Inauguration event last week.

Players pasts are already dug up for story lines in preparation for the Super Bowl and now with the Harbaugh brothers coaching against each other during the biggest game of their lifetime, additional betting situations have been created as well.

In total, Las Vegas sports-book Bovada has added an additional seven prop bets pertaining to the Harbaugh family for Super Bowl XLVII. Here they are:

Over/Under: 7.5 seconds

Odds: Both set at (-120)

Payout: If your guess is correct on a $50 wager, you would win $41.67.

 

Who will be  shown first during the game?

Must be from kick off until final whistle. Live pictures only. Half time does not count.

Payout: On a $50 bet, you would double your money if you picked either coach correctly. If you bet on split screen, you would quadruple  your money.

Clearly wagering money on the Super Bowl is a game within itself. While players will be heading to the Big Easy for a business trip, a lot of temptations also exist. Let’s hope that at least the Ravens stay out of trouble because you can even bet on a player arrest on either team from now until kickoff and receive a payout of five times your bet with the +500 odds.
