Super Bowl 50: Cross-Sport Betting Props

Super Bowl Sunday is the biggest sporting day in the United States every year and this Sunday’s game between NFC champion Carolina and AFC champion Denver is expected to attract some $4.2 billion in betting action in the USA — with only a fraction of that in legal sportsbooks in Nevada or Atlantic City. One great thing about the Super Bowl is it offers a chance to parlay some Super Bowl game props with some other sports.

NBA PROPS

Players can wager on the number of assists by Los Angeles Clippers point guard Chris Paul against the number of first-half points scored by Denver against the Panthers.

The Broncos had nine points in the first half of the divisional-round win over the Pittsburgh Steelers and 17 in the first half of the AFC title game over the New England Patriots. Carolina’s defense is better than both.

There’s also an option on the total points and rebounds of Sacramento Kings center DeMarcus Cousins from Sunday’s game in Boston against the number of rushing yards by Panthers quarterback Cam Newton, who is the heavy Super Bowl 50 MVP favorite.
