The Super Bowl is the most watched sporting event of the year, and with the recent influx of legalized gambling, it’s no surprise that it’s become even more popular. Prop bets, or proposition bets, are wagers that aren’t tied to the final score or outcome of the game. For those of you new to the gambling space, these bets can be a great way to get involved in the game without having to pick a winner or loser.

One of the most popular prop bets for Super Bowl LVII is the last song that Rihanna will perform. The odds for this have since been closed at various sportsbooks, but as of Friday, the odds for Rihanna’s last song were as follows: ‘Diamonds’ -125, ‘Run This Town’ +400, ‘Umbrella’ +400, ‘Don’t Stop The Music’ +600, ‘We Found Love’ +1,000, ‘SOS’ +1,500, and ‘Take A Bow’ +1,500. All week, ‘Umbrella’ made the most sense, as it’s arguably Rihanna’s most popular song and a track that took her from a budding star to the top of the charts. However, during Super Bowl Media week, Ri Ri misspoke on the name of one of her albums, so the odds have since flipped to ‘Diamonds’ as the leader in the clubhouse to be her final song.

Another fun prop bet is whether Andy Reid will say ‘burger’ or ‘cheeseburger’ in his postgame interview. The ‘yes’ odds are +165, while the ‘no’ odds are -220. Reid is a lover of food, and his players gifted him a cheeseburger after a game on Christmas Eve. We’re getting “plus” odds, so why not take the chance? The announcer will likely ask Reid a food question, and why wouldn’t he mention his favorite food?

Lastly, one of the most popular prop bets is Patrick Mahomes over 4.5 rushing attempts: +130. On the largest stage, let’s go with the best player in the sport. Mahomes surpassed three rushing attempts 10 times during the regular season, and he had three rushing attempts against the Jaguars despite playing on one leg and missing a chunk of the game. With an additional two weeks for his ankle to heal and this being the final game with everything on the line, you’d imagine Mahomes will be a more willing runner. We also have to think about how often the Eagles are likely to get pressure against Mahomes, who is a magician when it comes to avoiding sacks. With the stakes high, Mahomes runs, making this a no-brainer to bet.

Whether you’re a seasoned NFL fan or a beginner, there’s a prop bet out there for everyone. From Rihanna’s last song to Andy Reid’s postgame interview to Patrick Mahomes’ rushing attempts, there’s plenty of fun to be had and money to be won. So get out there and place your bets!
