The Super Bowl is the biggest sporting event in the country each year, and thanks to the publicity, betting volume, and data available on every detail, bookmakers are comfortable offering an array of betting options.

While the game spread gets the big money and is everyone’s main course, hundreds of prop bets are available for those willing to comb through the buffet.

Let’s take a look at some of the most fun, interesting, and oddest props available for Super Bowl LV.

Largest lead

If you are convinced this will be a close game throughout that keeps everyone riveted to their seats, this may be the prop for you. Or, if you think the game will be a blowout, but you aren’t sure which team will dominate, this wager might be enticing.

The largest lead Over/Under is 14.5 and should keep you on pins and needles.

Coin toss

Tails never fails, right?

In the moments before kickoff, you could talk about your bets and look for the fellow gambler in the room, but this is the easiest way to plant your flag and let them know you’re ready for a good time.

National anthem length 

They say the Kentucky Derby is the fastest two minutes in sports. If you decide to bet the Over for the national anthem, prepare yourself for the longest two minutes in sports.

If you’re looking for something unique to wager on that provides the opportunity to handicap Twitter rumors and YouTube videos, this is for you.

Team to score the longest touchdown

Everybody loves big plays, and this prop allows you to cheer even louder for the biggest. The Chiefs are favored at -143, because of their explosive offense and dynamic speedsters Tyreek Hill and Mecole Hardman.

It is difficult to predict when a big play will occur, and this wager lends even more excitement to that action.

Gatorade color dumped on the winning coach

If you win the biggest game of the year as a head coach, you expect to get Gatorade dumped on you in celebration.

The $250-limit question is, what color will that Gatorade be? Given the team colors of the Chiefs and Bucs, red and orange are deserving favorites. But blue has been known to spring an upset, and yellow is a great pick for traditionalists.

Even if you lose the game with the spread or moneyline, this wager will give you a chance to close the night on a sweet note.
