Throughout the course of the regular season, you'll find people betting on point spreads and over/under amounts, and not much else. For the Super Bowl, everything that odds makers could possibly think of comes into play, and we've covered many of the "prop bets" in depth here, so be sure to check them out.
With under 24 hours to go until the game, one prop bet is looking a little more attractive. Some of them come down to luck, such as the bets surrounding the coin toss probability and the color of Gatorade that will be dumped on the winning coach. Those probably aren't smart bets, but this "non-scientific" bet below could be worth a look.
The bet is this: how many times will Jack Harbaugh be shown on TV during the game? Jack is the father of Jim Harbaugh, the head coach of the San Francisco 49ers, and John Harbaugh, the coach of the Baltimore Ravens.
The storyline has been huge throughout the course of Super Bowl week. If you haven't seen it, then you've been under a rock. The "family" aspect has been huge, with every media outlet covering the game having explored it once. It seems like the over/under, which opened at 1.5 times and hasn't gone up much at all, is a little low.
Do you think Jack will get some face time? It seems likely, and it might be a smart play prior to the game starting. Well ... smarter than "Which team will win the coin toss?" at even money. But it is what it is.
