It’s time to get weird with the prop bets.
There are literally hundreds of Super Bowl props that extend far beyond the run-of-the-mill options that were available for the regular season.
More novelty and exotic options seem to trickle in daily across top football betting sites. Here are a few selections to add a little oomph to your betting slip.
Will there be a Scorigami?
We don’t blame you if the word Scorigami isn’t part of your lexicon. The term was coined by sports writer Jon Bois and simply means a final score that has never happened before in the sport’s history.
The most recent Scorigami happened in September when the Bengals beat the Patriots 22-18. It was the 1,075th unique NFL score. The last Scorigami to occur in the Super Bowl was in 2014 when the Seahawks beat the Broncos 43-8.
Will there be an Octopus?
This isn’t a bet on whether an Octopus will hit the playing field the way it used to at Detroit Red Wings playoff games.
In football, an Octopus is when the same player scores a touchdown and follows it up with a two-point conversion, accounting for all eight points himself.
Interestingly enough, both quarterbacks in this game recorded an Octopus during the regular season.
Patrick Mahomes did it in November vs. the Titans, while Hurts had back-to-back QB sneaks against the Bears in December.
Color of first Gatorade poured on the coach
We’d be remiss not to include the beloved Gatorade prop on a list of offbeat Super Bowl bets.
Before the champagne pops, one lucky coach will be endowed with an electrolyte shower for leading his team to victory.
It’s been a Blue dynasty in recent years, with ambiguous flavor taking home the honors in three of the last four Super Bowls.
The sportsbooks have Philly as a slight favorite in this year’s Super Bowl, making it no surprise that the shortest Gatorade odds belong to Green.

Will a kick hit the post?
Let’s face it. We’ll probably never again be spoiled with a double-doink the way we were in the 2018 NFC Wild Card game by Chicago Bears kicker Cody Parkey.
But a single doink is still very much in play.
This bet includes not just field goals but extra points as well. Ever since the XP got moved back another 10 yards in the NFL, kicking has turned into a circus.
There’s a lot to like about these +450 odds that include doinks off the uprights and the crossbar.
