Super Bowl 2022 Gatorade Color Odds: Orange The Favorite

Super Bowl 2022 Gatorade Color Odds: Orange The Favorite

There are three NFL betting staples of every Super Bowl that have nothing to do with football.

The coin toss.

The length of the National Anthem.

The color of the Gatorade shower.

The national anthem and coin flip will be completed before the kickoff of Super Bowl 56. The only wager here that keeps viewers and bettors watching until after the final play is the victor’s Gatorade bath.

Bettors will again be able to wager on the color of the Gatorade dumped on the winning coach for Super Bowl 56. Will Sean McVay or Zac Taylor get doused in clear liquid? Will the winner be awash by Gatorade matching their team colors? Will there be a Gatorade upset across betting sites and betting apps like there was after Super Bowl 55?

Buccaneers coach Bruce Arians received a Blue Gatorade bath after Tampa Bay beat Kansas City, despite rampant rumors that Tampa Bay was going with Purple. (Who over the age of 12 drinks Purple Gatorade?)

Even those souls who don’t know the difference between a touchdown and a first down can wager on an equal footing with the most knowledgeable football experts on the planet.

For those seeking color parity, Orange would appear to be the perfect fit for those supporting the Bengals, who are +4.5 at Caesars Sportsbook and other major books against the Rams .

The Bengals have been among the longest of long shots to win the Super Bowl all season, bottoming out at +20000 after Week 3. Joe Burrow’s Cats have been defying expectations and experts all season. Would the Bengals' Gatorade team opt for Purple to honor the LSU roots that Burrow shares with Ja’Marr Chase?

Be warned, Taylor got a Clear Gatorade shower after his first win as Cincinnati head coach in 2019.

Because of that, Clear seems like the best value choice for those who think the Bengals are going to close this unexpected run of success with a Super Bowl victory. The Rams have a choice of Yellow or Blue if they choose to match their colors. Blue is the solid pick there if you’re backing the favored Rams to win outright.

Super Bowl Gatorade Shower Began In SB 21

The Gatorade bath made its Super Bowl debut with the 1986 New York Giants in Super Bowl 21. Bill Parcells had been awash in Gatorade dumped on him by his players after victories since 1984. Parcells triumphantly walked off the field of the Rose Bowl awash in sweet and sticky, Orange-colored Gatorade following Big Blue’s 39-20 win over the Broncos. In all, the Tuna got hit with 17 Gatorade showers during that championship season.

In the past 35 years, the Gatorade bath has become a post-game staple, along with that trip to Disney World and the Lombardi Trophy presentations. To the surprise of absolutely no one, Patriots coach Bill Belichick stayed dry after his team won Super Bowls 36, 38 and 51. Two of those games (Super Bowl 36 and 51) were decided on the game’s final play.

Super Bowl 38 ended with a kickoff. Adam Vinatieri’s game-winning field goal left 2 seconds remaining on the clock. In all 3 games, Belichick’s players were in no position to be concerned with preparing a Gatorade dump.

Baltimore coach Jim Harbaugh also avoided the rain after the Ravens beat the 49ers in Super Bowl 47.

Orange is the leader during the past 12 Super Bowls, appearing 5 times. Blue Gatorade has been dumped in 2 of the past 3 Super Bowls. Blue was a prohibitive long shot at +650 at DraftKings before it landed on Arians in Super Bowl 55. Andy Reid’s Orange bath drew shorter odds in Super Bowl 54, splashing in at +400 at the same book.

This market made its legal regulated debut in 2019 during Super Bowl 53 when Bill Belichick got doused with Blue Gatorade after beating the Rams 13-3 and bettors at FanDuel who backed the Blue cashed in at +150.

Belichick was famously soaked with Clear Gatorade (or was it ice water) after the Patriots won Super Bowl 39 with his father, Stephen. The elder Belichick, a longtime assistant coach at the Naval Academy, joined his son on the sidelines for the Patriots win over the Eagles.
