Bodog’s Best Super Bowl Prop Bets

Super Bowl prop bets

When they played the first Super Bowl in 1967, there were only two official ways to bet on the Big Game: the point spread, and the moneyline. Totals were introduced the following year for Super Bowl II, but we didn’t get the first Super Bowl props until Super Bowl XX in 1986.

Even then, it was just the famous William “The Refrigerator” Perry touchdown prop on the NFL odds board. Fast-forward to 2024, and we’ve got hundreds of Super Bowl LVIII props waiting for you right here at Bodog Sportsbook.


We’ve also got one of the biggest Super Bowl matchups this sport has ever seen. The defending champions from Kansas City will once again face San Francisco, kicking off this Sunday (6:30 PM ET, CBS) from Allegiant Stadium in Paradise, Nevada. These same teams met four years ago at Super Bowl LIV, with KC coming from behind to win 31-20 as 1.5-point favourites in Miami Gardens.

Okay, there is one notable difference between that game and Sunday’s matchup: Brock Purdy will be the quarterback for San Francisco. As a result, the Niners are 2-point favourites at Bodog as we go to press – and they seem to be getting most of the early action thus far.

That’s when you look at the spread. San Francisco has just a slight edge in volume right now as –125 moneyline favourites. Then we have all sorts of Kansas City money coming in on those Super Bowl props. It’s exactly what you’d expect from the defending champs and their supporters, especially after their 2022 championship season was chronicled on the Netflix series Quarterback.

Speaking of which, it’s pretty obvious who the star of the show is this Sunday. No, not Taylor Swift; it’s Kansas City QB Patrick Mahomes. Everyone’s loading up their Super Bowl props checklist, looking for the tastiest Mahomes odds here at Bodog. But as they say, there’s plenty more where that came from. In celebration of our props going live for the Big Game, here’s our top five list of the best Super Bowl prop bets for Sunday’s matchup.

5. Kelce + Swift

We can’t completely ignore the now four-time Grammy Award winner for Album of the Year – especially when she’s dating one of the most beloved players in the league, Kansas City tight end Travis Kelce. We’ve got multiple Taylor Swift Super Bowl props on our list, with more to come; this includes the over/under for how many times Swift will be shown during the in-game broadcast, with Over 5.5 priced at –175.

It’s the props involving both Swift and Kelce that have captured the zeitgeist of the moment. Check under the Requested Specials heading at Bodog, and you’ll see what we mean: all sorts of props that will pay off if Kansas City wins. Will Kelce propose to Swift (+1500)? Will they announce she’s pregnant (+2000)? And for the full “conspiracy theory” meal deal, how about Kansas City winning 34-31, with Kelce scoring the last touchdown, being named Super Bowl MVP, proposing to Swift, and both endorsing Joe Biden during their post-game speech (+100000)?

4. McCaffrey + Pacheco

If conspiracies are your thing, rumour has it they might try to run the ball this Sunday. As popular as Mahomes is, and as close as Purdy was to winning regular-season MVP, it’s the ground-and-pound that could decide who wins the Big Game – especially for the Niners, who led the league this year by rushing 45% of the time.

Which brings us to the top two tailbacks for Super Bowl Sunday: San Francisco 49ers RB Christian McCaffrey, and Kansas City RB Isiah Pacheco. McCaffrey might be this year’s “real” MVP after romping for 1,459 yards and scoring 21 combined touchdowns, both tops in the NFL. Pacheco managed only 935 yards and nine combined TDs, but that was in 13 starts to McCaffrey’s 16, and each has found the end zone in each playoff game thus far.

McCaffrey and Pacheco will have their footprints all over Super Bowl LVIII. Our “Multi’s” menu has a price of +400 on the board for McCaffrey to gain at least 100 rushing yards, and Pacheco at least 80. If you want to manage your risk a bit, you can lower those targets to 95 and 70 respectively for a payout of +288. Both options should have some betting value given the lack of respect the running game gets these days.

3. Jones + Bosa

If running has become unfashionable, what about defense? Most people want to see touchdowns this Sunday, not Mahomes and Purdy getting thrown to the turf. But here at Bodog Sportsbook, we know how important defense has been for both these teams, even more so when it comes to pass defense.

That’s why we have our eye on Kansas City DT Chris Jones and San Francisco EDGE Nick Bosa. These are the alpha dogs on each team’s defensive line, although it’s been a relatively quiet postseason for Jones – he has just a half-sack in three games, while Bosa lit up Detroit Lions QB Jared Goff twice during the NFC Championship Game.

Will each of these behemoths record a sack at Super Bowl LVIII? Individually, Jones is priced at +120 and Bosa at –130; together, they’re available at +275 on our Game Specials list for Sunday’s contest. You’ll be paying a tiny premium to combine Jones and Bosa’s odds, but they do go together like chocolate and peanut butter.

2. Race to 30

All right, enough about defense – let’s talk scoring. Fox Sports analyst and former NFL tight end Greg Olsen called the NFC Championship Game a “race to 30 points,” which seems to be the new mantra for winning these days; sure enough, the Niners got there first, scoring what proved to be the decisive touchdown with 3:02 left on the clock in their 34-31 victory.

Our Race to 30 prop at Bodog has San Francisco favoured to do it again this Sunday. Well, sort of; the Niners are priced at +250, with Kansas City at +330. The actual favourite is Neither at –134, and maybe that’s the sharper side given everything we just said about defense and rushing.

In that case, how about the Race to 20? San Francisco is –112 to reach this more modest target before Kansas City (+120), with Neither a distant third at +800. Or if you’re really into offense, there’s the Race to 40, with the Niners at +900 and the defending champs at +1200. Sure, Neither is the chalky –1000 favourite here, but you have to crank up the risk factor if you want the bigger reward.

1. Super Bowl MVP

Football may be a team sport, but it’s the individual stars who will be shining this Sunday in Paradise. We’re working on those individual Super Bowl MVP odds at press time, but there are still dozens of different ways at press time to bet on who’ll be named the Most Valuable Player for the Big Game.

Chances are it’ll be Mahomes or Purdy. Our MVP props menu for “QB vs. Any Other Position” has Quarterback as the –345 favourite; 32 of the 58 MVP awards handed out (including co-winners) have gone to the pivot, including 10 of the last 14. Two of those awards went to Mahomes.

If you want to bet on either quarterback to win MVP against the field – meaning against all the other players at Super Bowl LVIII – Mahomes is well ahead in this race at +120 to Purdy’s +215, even though the 49ers are favoured to win this Sunday. That’s how important McCaffrey is to San Francisco’s success.

Meanwhile, our “Super Bowl MVP – Position of Winner” prop has Running Back/Fullback listed at +365, and that might be the pick of the litter, since it covers both McCaffrey and Pacheco, not to mention Niners FB Kyle Juszczyk, the Harvard grad who just made his eighth Pro Bowl. Juszczyk did score a touchdown at Super Bowl LIV, don’t forget.

Kansas City doesn’t really use a fullback, but they do have one heck of a tight end in Kelce – and Tight End happens to be available at +1100 for this prop. Unfortunately, Kelce appears to be slowing down somewhat at age 34, and while the Niners have their own stud in TE George Kittle, he’s also taken a smaller role in San Fran’s offense since Purdy took the QB reins from Jimmy Garoppolo.

We’ll be adding even more Super Bowl props between now and the Big Game, so there might be some even juicier props than these waiting for you to snap up. You’ll find them all on our NFL odds page here at Bodog Sportsbook, so get your checklists ready, and don’t forget to print out your Super Bowl Squares for yourself and any guests you might have this Sunday. Enjoy the game.
