How to keep yourself entertained with Super Bowl prop bets

The New York Jets won’t be playing in the Super Bowl but prop bets can still give you plenty to root for. 

The Super Bowl matchup between the Kansas City Chiefs and Tampa Bay Buccaneers may not offer much to New York Jets fans, besides one more opportunity to root against Tom Brady. But it’s still the biggest football game of the year and there are plenty of ways to keep yourself entertained and invested in more than just the commercials and halftime show.

Bet365 is a great way to get in on the action and right now they’re offering up to $500 in Bet Credits to new customers from New Jersey*. Sign up and check out the pre-game minutiae you can stake a position on.

Looking for a high-scoring, high-flying game? Maybe think about the over on Patrick Mahomes’ passing yards — 327.5. If you think Tom Brady is likely to go over as well (296.5) take both and the over on total touchdowns for both teams combined, currently set at 4.5. If you’re the kind of person who likes gritty defensive battles and absurdly long odds, there’s always a 100/1 bet on neither team scoring a single touchdown.

And if you are, somehow, a Jets’ fan with a fondness for Tom Brady this may be your last chance to wager on his ability to do the impossible. The Kansas City Chiefs are currently favored which means Brady is a Super Bowl underdog for just the second time in his 10 appearances. Brady has won six of his previous nine Super Bowl appearances but he’s just 4-5 against the spread.

Whatever feels like the winning play to you, Bet365 has you covered. You can even get your straight bets paid out if the team you back gains a 17 point advantage — for parlays, the selection will be marked as a winner. (Only available to new and eligible customers.
