Only four teams (the Cleveland Browns, Detroit Lions, Jacksonville Jaguars and Houston Texans) have never appeared in a Super Bowl.
The Super Bowl Most Valuable Player Award (or Super Bowl MVP), is presented to the player deemed to be the most valuable of the Super Bowl as chosen by a media panel of 16 football writers and broadcasters (which accounts for 80 percent of the vote tally) and fans voting electronically (which makes up the remaining 20 percent).
The MVP award is generally awarded to the winning quarter-back in the Super Bowl.
‘Prop Bets’ (Proposition bets) are fun bets that are regarded as being synonymous with the Super Bowl.
The sportsbooks offer a variety of betting odds on everything from the length of the national anthem to a wardrobe malfunction during the halftime entertainment.
Super Bowl prop betting is one of the more unique betting types in the NFL. Super Bowl prop betting refers to a wager that is not decided by the final score. The bettor gambles on a proposition, usually the first touchdown scorer and other team and player performances.
However, the prop bets are not specifically for these types of bets. With millions of viewers with perhaps only a passing interest in the Football, some sportsbooks take advantage by offering a wider variety of prop bets that you wouldn’t see.
So, expect to come across bets such as what color Gatorade will be dumped on the winning coach at the end of the match!
It’s been another excellent season to date for Patrick Mahomes at quarterback for the Kansas City Chiefs, with the 2018 MVP and QB who led the Chiefs to Super Bowl LIV last season setting career highs in QBR (82.7), yards per game (316) and completion percentage (66.3%).
That alone is enough to make the Chiefs worthy favorites. A dangerous contender could be the Baltimore Ravens, while the Green Bay Packers could benefit from an arguably less challenging route to the Super Bowl in the NFC.
