Super Bowl 52 will take place on February 4, 2018, from U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis, Minnesota. While fans will be in a frenzy at the game, sportsbooks in Las Vegas will also be at a fever pitch. In case you didn’t know, the Super Bowl will bring in hundreds of millions of dollars in wagering action - and there are a myriad of ways you can bet on the game.

The simplest and most common wager is putting your money on one of the two teams in the game. For example, let’s say New England plays the Minnesota Vikings and the point spread is a pick ‘em or even money.

If you bet New England and they win, so do you. The same can be said if you wager on the Vikings and they win the big game. That is simply called making a “straight wager” on a team.

However, that is far from the only way you can wager on this game! The week before the Super Bowl, many sportsbooks will post “prop bets” on the game - and most of them have nothing to do with the final score or who actually wins the game. Some sportsbooks will have up to 500 props on Super Bowl 52. While we wait for all of the exotic ways to wager on the big game, here are three prop bets that many sportsbooks will already let you throw your hard earned money down on right now.

The Coin Toss

Yes, this prop bet is as simple as it sounds - you can wager on the official Super Bowl coin toss.

You can wager “Heads” or “Tails.” How about that for a simple way to make a quick buck? It also is one of the prop bets that the public has the best odds of winning on - after all, it is either one or the other, so you have a 50/50 chance of being correct!

Super Bowl matchup advanced lines spread and total

We know the final four teams, but what we won’t know until late Sunday evening is which two will be left standing after Championship Sunday.

If you think you know which two teams will advance to Super Sunday, you can get some great odds on the title game already.

This prop wager is called the “advanced Super Bowl odds.” The advantage of this type of wager is if you believe in one particular team, you can lock in the wager and point spread now. If the spread changes before the game, you don’t have to worry because once you make your play, you are set to go!

Here is a look at the advanced odds according to Bovada sportsbook.

  • Jacksonville Jaguars vs. Philadelphia Eagles (-1.5, O/U 39.5)
  • Jacksonville Jaguars vs. Minnesota Vikings (-5.5, O/U 40)
  • Philadelphia Eagles vs. New England Patriots (-7, O/U 45.5)
  • Minnesota Vikings vs. New England Patriots (-2.5, O/U 47.5)

Super Bowl MVP

The Super Bowl Mvp is one of the most popular prop bets to wager on every year. Each year the quarterbacks are always at the top of the favorites list, and this year is no different. New England’s Tom Brady and Minnesota’s Case Keenum are listed as the favorites to win the Super Bowl 52 MVP.

Here is why wagering on the MVP is a good thing to do now - before we know the two teams who will play in the big game on February 4.

If you believe that the Eagles will beat the Vikings this Sunday in the NFC championship game, wagering on Philadelphia QB Nick Foles to win the Super Bowl MVP would be a wise thing to do before this Sunday.

Foles is currently listed at +2000 (meaning a $100 wager will pay $2000 if he wins the MVP) right now. He is listed that high because most NFL experts do not believe that the Eagles will beat the Vikings and advance to the Super Bowl.

If the Eagles do win Sunday and make it to the Super Bowl, the odds on Foles will drop a ton. He will most likely fall to +600 or +700, which is a far cry from +2000. You definitely will get "more bang for your buck" by wagering early on this prop bet no matter which player you select.

As of January 18, here is a look at the top ten favorites to win the MVP award for Super Bowl 52.

  • Tom Brady (+125)
  • Case Keenum (+700)
  • Rob Gronkowski (+700)
  • Adam Thielen (+1000)
  • Stefon Diggs (+1400)
  • Dion Lewis (+1500)
  • Nick Foles (+2000)
  • Jay Ajayi (+2000)
  • Latavius Murray (+3000)
  • Blake Bortles (+4000)
