Super Bowl 55 is set for Sunday, February 7, 2021 and for Pennsylvania sportsbooks, the NFL’s Championship Game will bring myriad prop bet opportunities. There are betting lines for just about everything involving and surrounding the Super Bowl at PA online sportsbooks.
Not only can you bet on all of the usual NFL props, like rushing yards and TDs scored, Super Bowl props can include bets on the jersey number of the first TD scorer, “fat man props” and more. Read on to find out how you can get in on all the Super Bowl props action you want at legal PA online betting sites.
In Pennsylvania, prop bets are only permitted on actions that take place within the bounds of the playing field. That means no betting on what color Gatorade will be poured over the winning coach post-game or the length of National Anthem, though some states will offer those markets. However, you can bet on the pre-game coin toss in PA.
If you’re looking for a short cut to certain kinds of Super Bowl props, here’s what each PA betting app is known for:
DK offered more than 400 Super Bowl-related bets for the big game in 2020, including the largest selection of novelty props in PA. You could have bet on the outcome of the coin toss at -103 for heads or tails. However, DraftKings Sportsbook also offered a prop combining the result of the coin toss and the game winner. It paid +255 on tails and the Chiefs for a win, which ultimately happened and paid handsomely.
FOX Bet Sportsbook boosted the odds on a lot of its Super Bowl LIV props. This included setting Chiefs’ QB Patrick Mahomes‘ passing yards prop line at 305.5 and boosting the under to +105. It paid off when Mahomes threw for 286 yards.
Rivers Sportsbook had a whole slew of props listed under its ‘Big Game LIV Specials’ banner last year. Those who bet the combination of either Jimmy Garoppolo or Patrick Mahomes scoring a rushing TD and being named MVP got paid off when Mahomes pulled it off. It paid a whopping +450.
FanDuel Sportsbook had a huge Super Bowl LIV props market filled with some stunningly accurate player stat line props. This included the over/under on 49ers’ QB Jimmy Garoppolo’s total passing yards set at 240.5. The under (-112) came in when Garoppolo threw for 219 yards, incredibly making oddsmakers just 20 yards or so off.
Most of the Super Bowl player and team props you find at PA online sportsbooks involve betting an over/under on game stat lines. The difference between the two is Super Bowl player props surround player stats and Super Bowl team props involve team totals.
In other words, you can bet the over/under on both an individual running back’s total rushing yards and his team’s total rushing yards. Likewise for the passing yards for the expected stars of the game, the QBs. Here are a few of the most popular player props on offer for Super Bowl 55.

One of the most popular Super Bowl player props involves betting on who will win Super Bowl MVP. There are normally no betting odds on a favorite in this market, even though the winning QB walks away with the award most of the time. That means there’s plenty of value to be found betting both starting QBs.
Just remember that when you bet Super Bowl props surrounding player stats and team totals, it’s a good idea to first determine how high- or low-scoring you think the game will be. Star players pile up stats in high-scoring games and generally underperform when the score stays low. You can use that knowledge to guide your player and team prop betting.
You can bet on Super Bowl props that surround players’ and team’s offensive and defensive performance. You can even bet Super Bowl props around defensive players and teams performing on offense, like a prop on whether or not either defense will score a TD.
Some of the props for offensive players include:
Some of the props for offensive teams include:
Some of the props for defensive players include:
Some of the props for offensive teams include:
Just remember that betting on offensive and defensive props successfully requires a lot of research. You’re going to want to take a deep dive into the stats put up by each team and player you’re betting on, determine how accurate the lines are, and bet accordingly.
The most popular crossover Super Bowl prop might be a futures parlay involving the Super Bowl winner and the champions in other major sports to be determined later in the year.
No matter what prop bets you want to make and which PA online sportsbook you plan to place them at, there’s a four-step process to follow first.
Sign up for an account with the PA online sportsbook of your choice through the link here on this page. You can do this before or after downloading the betting app from the sportsbook to your phone.
You may be asked for a bonus or promo code. Find that here on this page and plug it in when you sign up to ensure you get the best new player bonus you can. If the promo code is for an instant free bet or no deposit bonus, it will be added to your account as soon as it’s confirmed.
Deposit money in your PA online sportsbook account using one of the many different deposit methods available. These may include:
You’ll find all the Super Bowl props markets under the Super Bowl and NFL tab in the lobby of any PA online sportsbook or sportsbook app. Just scroll through and click on any bet you like and a bet slip will be instantly created.
Enter the dollar amount you want to bet and you’ll see the potential payout field fill in automatically. You can play around with any amount to see the difference in your payouts.
Once you’ve decided on the amount, just click the ‘Place Bet’ button to place the bet. You can also go back to browsing through the available props, add more bets to your slip, and possibly turn multiple props into a parlay. Enter the amount you want to bet on each, see all the potential payouts, and click the ‘Place Bet’ tab to place all your bets at once.
*It’s also worth noting that while you may find even more Super Bowl LV props available at illegal “offshore” sportsbooks, it’s a bad idea to bet on them. Remember, only legal PA online sportsbooks can guarantee your money and personal information are safe and secure.
If you’re hosting a virtual Super Bowl party this year you might want to get in on some home prop action to raise the excitement level. Try printing up a sheet including a few player and team stat props, alongside a couple of the more outlandish props.
Then, send it to your guests. Make a contest out of it by having them fill it out before the game and awarding some kinds of prizes for the most correct answers after the final whistle.
You can also put together your own Super Bowl squares grid, which is always a popular way for everyone to get a little random skin in the big game.
You can put together a 10×10 and 100-bet grid by numbering 10 columns and rows zero through nine on a large sheet of paper. Put one team’s name on top and the other on the side.
Sell off the squares randomly or through an auction. Then, award prizes to the owners of each square matching the final number in the score for each team at the end of every quarter. Plus, give away one grand prize for the game’s final score.
The Super Bowl is a great opportunity for bookmakers to get creative. Some of the more interesting wagers you will find at PA sportsbooks include:
And while you won’t find them in Pennsylvania, bettors in New Jersey and elsewhere can wager on:
