Super Bowl XLIX Props: Shortest TD And Coaches Challenge

Super Bowl XLIX Props: Shortest TD And Coaches Challenge

Proposition Wagering: Shortest Super Bowl TD

Bookmakers at have set the OVER/UNDER on the shortest touchdown during Super Bowl XLIX at 1.5 yards. While that may seem short, it's much more common than one may think. RB Marshawn Lynch punched in a 1-yard TD run against Denver last year while RB Lawrence Maroney had a 1-yard plunge in the Patriots 17-10 loss to the Giants in Super Bowl XLII. It should be noted that both scores were registered after a pass interference penalty moved the down and distance to first and goal. Seven of QB Tom Brady's last ten rushing touchdowns, dating back to 2011, have come from 1-yard out. We'll follow where the signs point and back UNDER price with a 150 unit wager.

Coaches Challenge Prop Betting: Who tosses the red flag first?

Coaches challenging play calls is a relatively new Super Bowl prop betting option. While the information to back up this prop bet up is somewhat limited, there are some "tells" that can help determine the winning side. The first is the general coaching style of the two head coaches. Bill Belichick is old school, by the book and largely stoic in nature. Pete Carroll, who has lengthy college coaching resume, tends to have more of a rah-rah, by the book be damned, shoot from the hip personality. Belichick has won 39 of his 98 career challenges since 2000, while Carroll is 21 of 47 over six seasons as an NFL head coach. The Hoodie, who keeps the red flag in his sock = temptation deterrent, owns an 0-4 challenge record over the last two years. The Silver Seahawk sports a 9-9 record as he tossed the flag 18 times during the Seahawks past two seasons. Cruise with Carroll to call the first challenge with 150 units.
