Super Bowl 2024 props: Gatorade color, coin toss and OT to bet on for Chiefs vs. 49ers

Year in and year out, the Super Bowl is known for having a multitude of props to wager on.

Super Bowl 58 will be no different when the Kansas City Chiefs and San Francisco 49ers go to battle this weekend at Allegiant Stadium.

While I've broken down Super Bowl Sunday from multiple different betting perspectives (MVP, SGP, etc.), today is all about the fun options that even casual fans can bet on almost all legal sportsbooks without being a diehard fan of the sport.

Here are my three miscellaneous props to wager on with odds found on sportsbooks in New Jersey for this year's Super Bowl in Las Vegas.

Gatorade color poured on winning head coach: Yellow/Lime or Green (+390)

One of the most popular novelty props for Super Bowl 58 will always be the gatorade color that the winning head coach is doused in following the victory.

Last year, the Chiefs celebrated by pouring purple gatorade on head coach Andy Reid, which was reportedly 10-1 odds prior to Super Bowl 57.

Heading into Super Bowl Sunday, the odds of the gatorade being purple have shortened significantly as it's currently the odds-on-favorite at DraftKings Sportsbook at +225 (Bet $100 to win $225).

I'd be thoroughly surprised if either team goes that route, especially the Chiefs for a second straight year.

One option I've zeroed in on is red/pink at +550 on FanDuel Sportsbook.

Since the turn of the century, orange has been the go-to color of choice as it's been selected more than any other option with it being used five times.

While neither red nor pink have been chosen over the past two decades, there's a case to make for either team here.

The first sign is that both Chiefs and 49ers wear red uniforms, as Kansas City will dawn them for Super Bowl 58.

Then, you have the biggest storyline heading into the game with the well-known relationship between Chiefs' tight end Travis Kelce and arguably the biggest entertainer in the world right now in Taylor Swift.

The connection here is that Swift notably has an album called 'Red,' which was released over a decade ago in 2012.

While this certainly is a stretch, I wouldn't be surprised if that was the color, especially with Swift all but likely to be in attendance following her shows at the Tokyo Dome in Japan this weekend.

I could also see a scenario where the 49ers use red gatorade out of spite because of all the Taylor Swift headlines leading up to the game as well.

Here are the remaining odds for the Super Bowl gatorade color on FanDuel: Orange +300 (3/1), Blue +370, Yellow/Lime or Green +390, Purple +390, Red +550 and Water/Clear +750.

Coin toss: Tails (+100)

If the biggest bet following the game is the gatorade color, arguably one of the most bet props leading up to the game is the coin toss.

As it is every Super Bowl, the decision to who wins the toss is 50-50. As of Wednesday night, the best odds for either side can be found on DraftKings where the proposition is even money at +100 (Bet $100 to win $100).

After heads went on a run from Super Bowl 43 to Super Bowl 47, tails immediately was the right decision from Super Bowl 48 to Super Bowl 51.

Since then, it's been dead even split right down the middle over the last six years.

There's truly no wrong way to bet heads or tails, however, my only bit of advice is to shop around and use a sportsbook like DraftKings that offer this prop at even money instead of ones that don't have as good of a value.

When it comes down to it, I'm calling that this year's Super Bowl, in the betting capital of the world in Las Vegas, will land on heads.

Will the game go to overtime? Yes (+1120)

Potentially my favorite longshot of the entire Super Bowl is the "YES" to the overtime prop.

While it's only happened once in the 57-year history (Super Bowl 51), I believe this year's got as good of a chance as any.

The Chiefs and 49ers have combined to play in four one-score games this postseason, with three of those instances decided by a field goal.

When you go back to the first matchup in Super Bowl LIV, the game was much closer than the final score indicated as Kansas City scored a touchdown with less than 90 seconds remaining in the game.

Would it surprise me if somehow this game got out of hand on either side and it was a double digit victory for one of these organizations? Not at all.

However, for this game just to get to overtime at slightly better than 11-1 odds on FanDuel just days leading up to the game is way too good of a value to pass up.
