2022 Super Bowl Props to Avoid
While there are so many props options to bet on for the Super Bowl, a lot of them intended to sucker a bettor into thinking illogically. The theatrics of the Super Bowl grow with each season, and the day of the game has been a national holiday for years now. The City of Cincinnati has already closed schools for Monday, February 14 in anticipation of a win. This shows just how much these games mean to the team’s respective cities. The Rams are 4.5-point favorites here against the Bengals, and the Over/Under is set at 48.5. The game will be at the Rams home stadium, SoFi Stadium, marking the second time in a row that a team played a Super Bowl in the metro area of their home field since 1985.

Look for an exciting game that doesn’t need any extra intensity with outside wagers. It is important to be wise with your money. It is ok to have fun, put some money aside for the game, and let loose with it. When you go above and beyond with these props, that what the books want, and you never want to do what the sportsbooks want. Here are some props to avoid:
Props unrelated to the players/teams:
Whether it be the National Anthem, anything about the halftime show, or commercials, just kick back and spend time with those around you. The sportsbooks mainly have these odds available to draw people who would not normally bet on sports to their platform. Sports betting is meant to make calculated risks, with the potential for a reward based on the game and the outcome. These types of bets are really crapshoots, at best, and there is really no way to know what the outcome will be. Keep the focus on football and be smart with the vultures after your money.
Speaking of a crapshoot, the Super Bowl coin toss is the biggest pick’em that there is. The fact that there are exactly two outcomes to this, with nothing impacting the outcome besides flipping a coin, means that you should not be paying the book a vig on the line when there is truly no advantage of being on either side. While an argument could be made to take it, for this reason, it is not a smart bet, and that is why they offer it for this game only.
The safety is when an offensive player gets tackled in their own end zone, and the defense gets two points and possession as a result. This is a play that gives high + money odds to the bettor, and there is a good reason for it. This year, the odds provided by DraftKings for there to be a safety is +800. This looks appealing at first. However, when you dive into the numbers, this is not much of a good price at all. Over the course of every single NFL game ever played, there have only been safeties in 6.8% of them. And while there wasn’t a safety in the most recent season, there were two in the 2021 season. The last one in the big game came in Super Bowl XLVIII, in February of 2014. The odds get even crazier when the safety is bet on as the first score of the game. These odds are +5000, and this hasn’t happened since that same 2014 game, which was a blowout and a fluke of a championship game. In what should be a good game, there should be some smart coaching and rarely any opportunities inside their own five-yard line for either team.
