Super Bowl 55 prop bets: From the coin toss to the player to score first TD to entertainment odds

Super Bowl 55 parties are expected to be smaller this year, so that one person who usually takes out the stop watch to time the national anthem may not be two feet away from the TV before the big game this year.

That doesn’t mean prop bets have evaporated altogether.

Wagers revolving around the periphery of the game – anthem time over/under being a classic – help us understand why the Super Bowl is more than the NFL’s championship game. It’s an event. Rooting interests are not limited to the two teams on the field.

Here are some interesting prop bets for Super Bowl 55 between the Kansas City Chiefs and Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs will try to repeat as Super Bowl champs on Sunday.
