Super Bowl NHL Crossover Bets
Super Bowl Prop Bet – Tails Result for the Coin Toss
Talk about a Super Bowl prop bet that is over within maybe one second. The coin toss is one of the most exciting things about the events leading up to kickoff. So why not put a little “coin” on the flip of the coin? One of the last remaining 50/50 plays left in the betting world, the coin can shape your entire betting evening.
Coincidently, it might also shape the losing team’s night as well. The decision for this prop is simple because tails has come up in seven of the last ten Super Bowls. And since “Tails Never Fails,” we’re playing “Tails” for the result of the coin toss.
Super Bowl Prop Bet – Jersey Number of 1st Touchdown Scorer Over 22.5
Sure, you’ve seen the First Touchdown scorer prop plays. And chances are you’ve been taking stabs at them all NFL season long for a little boosted payout. With the biggest game of the year, why not put a few shillings on the jersey number of the first touchdown scorer? The play here is as simple as the decision to play tails above.
Travis Kelce’s jersey number is 87, and Christian McCaffery’s jersey number is 23. If it isn’t one, then it will probably be the other, and both numbers are higher than 22.5. Don’t overcomplicate your prop process, people. Mash the Over 22.5 Jersey Number of 1st Touchdown Scorer.
Super Bowl Prop Bet – Length of the National Anthem Over 86.5 Seconds
The National Anthem will undoubtedly bring some fans and plenty of coaches and players to tears prior to kickoff. This year’s singer will be Country music legend Reba McEntire. Bookmakers have lowered the bar pretty significantly, as the average National Anthem length in a Super Bowl is 103.5 seconds.
Perhaps it’s because of her upbeat, Country music style of singing? Well, I’m here to tell you that over 86.5 Seconds is easy money. Not only is that well below the average.
But, any music star doing something of this magnitude will surely be looking to relish the moment of a lifetime. So come on, Reba. Low and slow, just like Mama used to cook that brisket. Smash that Over 86.5 Seconds for the length of the National Anthem.
NHL Prop Bet – Cole Caufield Anytime Goalscorer
On Super Bowl Sunday, it is all about the good old American game of football. So, in the first NHL game of the day, we’re taking an American kid to score a goal. The Canadiens winger has 17 goals this season and is riding a 10-game point streak. Think of Cole Caufield as the Travis Kelce of the Montreal Canadiens.
Unfortunately for Cole, he isn’t going home with Taylor Swift. But he’s one of Montreal’s players who can be relied upon in the biggest moments. So go on, American boy, grab that goal, and then race home for kickoff. We’re playing the stars and stripes of Cole Caufield to score a goal against the St. Louis Blues.
NHL Prop Bet – T.J. Oshie Anytime Goalscorer
Why not make it two Americans on the ice on the most American of days: Super Bowl Sunday? T.J. Oshie is an American, and he plays for a team that quite literally has a bald eagle logo. If that isn’t a sign, then maybe the fact that he has four goals in his last six games is. T.J. Oshie is the hockey equivalent of 49ers tight end George Kittle.
He is a gritty-ass veteran who is going to get it done when his number is called upon. Who can ever forget that heroic Olympic performance Oshie put on in Sochi, Russia, back in 2014?
We’re taking T.J. Oshie to score a goal on Super Bowl Sunday. Heck, his jersey number is 77. If he does net that goal, it might even be worth considering a 7-7 1st quarter exact score result prop. Think about it!
