The length of the National Anthem, the outcome of the coin toss and the color of the post-game Gatorade bath are three events that Super Bowl 56 viewers of all types can wager upon. No matter their knowledge about football.

The Super Bowl is the last great American gathering. More than 100 million are expected to tune in to The Big Game Sunday as the Cincinnati Bengals and Los Angeles Rams meet in Super Bowl 56. And millions will tune in for the commercials, the halftime show, or to glimpse their favorite celebrity in attendance.

There are thousands of wagers available at sports betting apps and across betting sites based on the game’s outcome. For those who don’t care to wager on the Bengals, Rams or any of the players involved, there are three betting markets that cause as much discussion as any play during the game.

They are the result of the coin toss, the length of the national anthem and the color of the Gatorade dumped on the winning coach. Here is a look at each of these novelty markets with the latest NFL odds and our best bets on each:

Super Bowl 56 Coin Toss: Heads or Tails?

Super Bowl 56 Best Exotic Props & Odds: Coin Toss, Anthem & More 1

The coin toss is the simplest wager of all for NFL betting fans. Heads or tails. It’s a bet we’ve all been making since we were kids picking sides for sandlot baseball, street hockey or flipping for Twinkies in the school cafeteria.

Super Bowl 56 Coin Toss Odds

Coin Toss PropOddsOdds
Coin Toss Winner Bengals (-105) Rams (-105)
Correct Call Yes (-105) No (-105)
Toss Decision Receive (+375) Defer (-500)

In the previous 55 Super Bowls, the toss has landed on heads 26 times (47%) and tails 29 times (53%).

The longest heads streak was five Super Bowls, while the longest tails run is 4.

Only 25 teams have won the coin flip and the Super Bowl in 55 tries. In the past seven Super Bowls, the team that won the coin toss lost the game.

Our Pick: Heads. Always.

Super Bowl 56 National Anthem Odds: How Long Will It Last?


"The Star-Spangled Banner" will be sung by country singer Mickey Guyton before Super Bowl 56. The Bookies.com projected over/under on this year’s anthem is 97.5 seconds. There are no anthem props available in legal regulated markets at this time but that may change nearer to kickoff.

Anthem singers historically tend to go long before The Big Game. The past nine anthems performed before the Super Bowl have crushed this mark with each singer taking at least 1:47 (107 seconds) to honor America.

This is the lowest total in several years and is based in part on the version of the anthem performed by Guyton at the 2021 National Memorial Day Concert. She rolled through a stirring rendition in just 86 seconds.

Given how well that performance was received, and the fact that it likely played a huge role in her landing the Super Bowl gig, it’s unlikely Guyton will alter much on Sunday. Even if she chooses to savor the moment, we’re giving her an additional 11 seconds to take it all in and still cash on the under.

Our Pick: Under 97.5 Seconds.

Super Bowl 56 Gatorade Odds: What Color Will It Be?

Super Bowl 56 Best Exotic Props & Odds: Coin Toss, Anthem & More 2

Bettors can wager on the color of the Gatorade dumped on the winning coach for Super Bowl 56 across betting sites and sportsbooks.

Will Sean McVay get doused in clear liquid? Will Zac Taylor be awash by Orange Gatorade? In 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. Here are the latest Gatorade odds via DraftKings.

Super Bowl 56 Gatorade Color Odds

Color Odds
Orange +250
None +350
Blue +400
Clear +450
Yellow/Green +450
Red/Pink +600
Purple +1000

Odds via DraftKings and accurate as of publication.

Orange would appear to be the perfect fit for those supporting the Bengals. 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 he 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 decide to match their colors. Blue is the solid pick there if you’re backing the favored Rams to win outright.

Our Pick: Blue.
