What other wagers covered on Super Bowl Sunday?

Who will win the Super Bowl MVP? In the end, the favorite won the MVP award. Packers’ quarterback Aaron Rodgers was going off at 3/2 to win the prestigious honor, while Ben Roethlisberger was 3/1 and Rashard Mendenhall was 6/1. Rodgers threw for over 300 yards and three touchdowns with no interceptions in the victory, making him the unanimous choice for MVP. Had guys like Jordy Nelson, James Jones and Brett Swain not dropped a handful of passes, Rodgers would have had even better numbers as well.

Coin Toss: A winning wager on “Heads” would have netted a bettor $100 on a $105 bet. The Packers won the coin toss, so they too would have netted $100 on a $105 bet. Rather remarkably, the NFC has now won the coin toss the past 14 Super Bowls in a row. Those bettors waiting for that trend to turn around might as well hop on the bandwagon next year.

Which Player Will Score the First Touchdwon? It’s never who you think, is it? While many bettors probably loaded up on Rashard Mendenhall (5/1), Ben Roethlisberger (14/1), Aaron Rodgers (14/1), Greg Jennings (13/2) or Donald Driver (12/1), it was Jordy Nelson that scored the first touchdown. He was going off at 14/1, so those bettors that were fortunate enough to guess right, they cashed in on some pretty good odds.

National Anthem Odds: Considering she skipped an entire verse of the National Anthem, some bettors may be ticked that Christina Aguilera went under the 1 minute, 54 second mark for length of the Star Spangled Banner from start to finish. An over wager was -170, while an under wager was +130. She did hold the note “Brave” for over six seconds, however, which netted a winning bettor $100 on a $120 bet.
