The list of Super Bowl props offered by sportsbooks gets longer each season and it’s a great way to spice up the action.
National anthem props are a novelty and along with the coin toss, there is a list of political and celebrity props offered at Sportsbetting.com with good odds. Rather than try and handicap Mitt Romney’s next move, however, we skipped ahead to the Super Bowl Player Props to see what the early odds were like.
RUNNING BACK PROPS
The New York Giants and New England Patriots combined for more than 9,800 passing yards during the regular season but having a good run game will pay huge dividends at Lucas Oil Stadium.
– In the past 45 Super Bowls, the team that rushed for the most yards is 36-9 SU and 32-11-2 ATS.
BenJarvus Green-Ellis led the Pats with 667 rushing yards during the regular season and he was responsible for 11 of the team’s 18 rushing touchdowns. Green-Ellis has 28 carries during the post-season and just one reception vs. Denver (8 yards).
Ben Jarvis Green-Ellis – Will he have a reception – Must Play (No Reception – Under is Winner)
Take “No” at -115
Brandon Jacobs’ carries have dropped successively three-straight playoff games (14 avg) while Ahmed Bradshaw maxed at 20 rush attempts vs. San Francisco.
New England’s rush defense allows more than the 49ers, Packers and Falcons, the indoor turf gives traction and the rest will be a boost for each back.
Brandon Jacobs – Total Rushing Yards – Must Play (No Rush Attempt – Under is Winner)
Take Over 24.5 yards
