You can bet on just about anything at the Super Bowl and when I say anything, I mean anything. Some prop bets that pertain to stats and scores are rather conventional but some barely have anything to do with the on-field play. The coin toss is a popular prop bet as well as the over/under on the length of the national anthem, which was somewhat ruined by a local reporter this year.
Another popular prop bet is the color of Gatorade that gets dunked on the winning head coach. The Gatorade shower is a great moment for the winning team that happens when the team knows they have won. One problem was that CBS didn’t actually show the shower this year and only showed the aftermath. Many people who had money on the color were focused on figuring that out and when they didn’t get that from the broadcast, they flocked online to try and see if they had won.
Many posted the same meme of The Weeknd looking around in a winding room during his halftime show performance.

FYI, the winning color was blue which was a 7/1 long shot. Typically, colors like orange, red, or green are the most popular colors for Gatorade but blue wound up being the winner.
