The sheer depth of prop bets at the Super Bowl is still one of the many reasons why Super Sunday is among the biggest days on the American calendar.
For those gambling virgins, a prop (or "proposition") bet in this scenario is very simple. At thousands of casinos over the last two weeks, novelty bets have been placed on hundreds of scenarios at the Super Bowl that will not directly affect the outcome.
The entertainment value lies in making seemingly trivial events like the coin toss, national anthem and Gatorade bath an exercise in risk and reward—and making those same events worth watching for those not completely interested in the actual football game.
In the following slides, we'll track the best of the prop bets at Super Bowl XLVII. As the outcomes of those bets come in tonight, we'll update the tracker.
