Bill Belichick Shirt Color Prop Odds
What color will Bill Belichick's shirt/hoodie or jacket be at kickoff of Super Bowl LII? Here are a couple of interesting novelty prop bets for SB52.
According to oddsmakers from online sports book YouWager, the Patriots are now 4.5-point favorites to beat the Eagles, who opened as 6-point underdogs. The total, meanwhile, hit the board at 47.5, moved to 48 and is now up to 48.5. In fact, it's at 48.5 at the majority of online sportsbooks as of Friday morning.
As of Friday morning, 53% of the betting tickets wagered at online sportsbooks are on the Eagles. That said, 54% of the money wagered at online sportsbooks is on the Patriots. Meanwhile, 59% of the betting tickets are on the over.
What color will Belichick's shirt/hoodie/jacket be for kickoff on Sunday? The color blue has the best odds at 1/2 while grey is 3/2 and white is 6/1. The color red is the biggest long shots at 10/1.
When the Patriots beat the Falcons last year, Belichick was in a blue shirt. He also wore blue in Super Bowl 49 when the Patriots beat the Seahawks and in Super Bowl 46 against the Giants, he wore grey. Finally, when the Patriots had their undefeated season spoiled by the Giants in Super Bowl 42, Belichick wore red.
Our prediction? If you're betting this one, blue is the best bet but doesn't come with the best odds. Still, we say he'll wear blue.
Meanwhile, what color will the liquid be that is dumped on the head coach of the winning team? Blue has the best odds at 5/2, followed by orange at 11/4 and yellow/green at 14/5. Red is 3/1, clear/water is 4/1 and purple is the long-shot at 10/1.
Finally, who will the Super Bowl LII MVP thank first? "Does not thank anyone or mention any on list" is 2/1 and so is his teammates. If he thanks God, those odds are 5/2 and if he thanks the fans/city he'll thank 4/1. If he thanks his coaches or his owner, it's 6/1, and if he thanks his family first, it'll be 12/1.
