The Baltimore Ravens' wide receiver/return man was involved in several big plays that could have determined winners and losers for popular big game wagers.
Not only did Jones catch the longest touchdown pass of the first half with his 56-yard grab in the second quarter, he also made the Ravens the first team to score on special teams and the first team to score in the second half.
Special teams-based prop bets could have gone either way at the beginning of the game.
Both teams had dynamic players returning kicks and punts. Jones came through in the first half, but Ted Ginn is just as capable of breaking a game open for the San Francisco 49ers.
If you had the Ravens on any of those bets, then Jones is now your favorite player.
If you had the Niners on these bets, you probably hate him as much as Niners fans despised Kyle Williams during the NFC Championship game in 2012.
Jones burst out of the end zone to begin the second half. He took the kickoff 108 yards for a score. If your prop bets were even deeper, and you bet on the first man to make a dynamic play?
Jones would have undoubtedly been the winner in that scenario as well.
His first half performance was nearly enough to warrant Super Bowl MVP honors in normal circumstances.
Obviously, after a power outage and a huge comeback from the San Francisco 49ers, this was anything but normal circumstances.
The unpredictable nature of the game made sweating out prop bets even more nerve racking. Even still, Jones was the most impacting player from a prop bet standpoint.
