SportsPulse: Trysta Krick sits downs with Action Network’s Chad Millman for advice on which Super Bowl team to bet and which prop bet is a must.
Super Bowl LIII between the Los Angeles Rams and New England Patriots is rapidly approaching, which means it’s time to revisit all of the annual Super Bowl traditions: Football squares. A new wave of commercials. And, of course, outrageous prop bets.
Off-the-field proposition bets, as they are more formally known, aren’t legal in Las Vegas, where sports books are required to stick to in-game action. But each year, a number of online outlets give gamblers a means of betting on the strangest and most obscure parts of the Super Bowl, from the attire of halftime performers to specific mentions within the television broadcast.
Here are some of the weirdest proposition bets for Super Bowl LIII in Atlanta on Sunday, courtesy of online sportsbook Bovada LV.
