Since every book offers wildly different Super Bowl 52 prop bets, and since we have some time to kill before the big game is here. I present a few things that you can bet will happen around this big game. Sure, the Patriots and Eagles will do battle on the field. But what about all of the hoopla surrounding the matchup? Isn’t that the real story? 🙂
Five Must Super Bowl 52 Prop Bets
Donald Trump will be heard from
You can’t go a few minutes without someone in your general vicinity mentioning Trump’s name – and that’s the way he likes it! So it stands to reason that Donald Trump will all of a sudden praise the NFL and be a part of the pregame show. After all, isn’t the man friends with Belichick, Brady and Kraft? Take this one to the bank.
Gronk will not play
New England never makes excuses. They field who they have available that day and they go out and execute. It’s as simple as that. I don’t expect Rob Gronkowski to play in the game. Why? Because concussions are a hot topic these days and this is the most scrutinized game of the year. The Patriots don’t want any distractions. Look for them to sit him out and play Dwayne Allen a ton at tight end. It worked in the second half versus a tough Jaguars D and it will work again the title game.
Philadelphia will win the coin toss
Come on, folks. They’re the Eagles. Isn’t the Eagle one of the images used on coins? Okay, I don’t have anything to go on here, but it’s just a feeling that I have. Philly will win the coin toss and elect to kick to Brady to start the game. Book it.
Justin Timberlake will play Can’t Stop the Feeling
It’s his most uppity, feel-good song. JT is bound to bring the house down by playing the popular wholesome party anthem. Just imagine the outcry from the under 12 crowd if he didn’t.
This Super Bowl will be short
The Eagles are going to try and establish the run, while the Patriots have a propensity for going on long drives. I see this Super Bowl has being fairly short in length compared to recent ones. Hopefully, it’s action-packed and short, allowing all of us to sleep off our Super Bowl snacks and function properly at work on Monday.
