Top props: Results of popular Super Bowl bets

Updated February 5, 2018 - 1:57 am

Following are the results of some popular prop bets from Super Bowl LII between the Eagles and Patriots:

— Time of national anthem 2 minutes: Under -110 (1 minute, 53 seconds). Pink still took longer than an Eagles’ touchdown drive.

— Will the opening kickoff be a touchback: No +175. Kick returner Corey Clement disappointed yes bettors and Patriots fans.

— First play of the game: Pass -125. This one was too easy. At least attempt a flea flicker for the first play of the Super Bowl. C’mon, Philly.

— Team to commit first penalty accepted: Eagles -130. Zach Ertz rewarded Eagles backers with a false start.

— Tom Brady’s first pass: Incomplete +175. A rare incompletion for Brady who went for half a thousand yards against the Eagles.

— First score of the game will be: Field goal/safety +120. You can thank Eagles kicker Jake Elliott for that one.

— Player to score first touchdown: Alshon Jeffery 8/1. The top wideout went for 34 yards on that touchdown reception.

— Will there be a missed extra point: Yes +220. Elliott made some people a nice chunk of money.

— Which will be more, James Harden points (16 on Saturday night) or James White receiving yards? White 21 receiving yards (+105). Harden is averaging 31.2 points per game. A rare off night benefited White supporters.

— Score in last two minutes of first half: Yes -270. Felt like the Eagles and Patriots scored during every minute of the game.

— Brady passing yards over-under 293½: Over -110 (Brady 505 passing yards). Brady went way over early in the third quarter.

— Touchdown passes Nick Foles 1½: Over -110 (Foles three touchdowns). Foles will be a starting quarterback somewhere next year.

— Chris Hogan receiving yards 36½: Over -110 (Hogan 128 receiving yards). Hogan was one of three Pats receivers to go over 100 yards.

— Total touchdowns in game 5½: Over -150 (Nine total touchdowns). Besides the anthem, a lot of overs during the Super Bowl.

— Total net yards in game 737½: Over -110 (1,150 total yards). The Patriots and Eagles combined for a new postseason record.

— Exact number of points: Eagles 41 (35/1); Patriots 33 (30/1). If you got both right, you can save that tax refund.

— Team to record first sack: Eagles (-110). Brandon Graham’s late fourth-quarter sack saved the game for Philly.

— Which will be more, Golden Knights plus Washington total goals (-½) or Amendola receptions? Amendola 8, Knights plus Caps 7. Bet against Knights when it comes to props.

— Super Bowl LII MVP: Foles 4/1. The Eagles backup quarterback considered retiring two years ago. Foles is now a Super Bowl Most Valuable Player.
