UPDATE: Orange is the winner! It was +750, so a bit of a long shot.
When they say you can bet anything for Super Bowl 54, they aren’t kidding. And there have been some deep dives into one of the most fun bets on the board: what color Gatorade will be used to shower the winning head coach in celebration.
It’s a tradition that goes back to Bill Parcells and the Giants teams of the 80’s, but now there are people actively investigating where to find value on this prop on Twitter.
Here’s where DraftKings online sportsbook stands on the bet as of now:
A rumor earlier this week saying the NFL would be honoring Kobe Bryant via the Gatorade shower did move the market towards purple, but there’s been some buyback towards red and the field since.

Which color will reign down on the winning coach Sunday evening? We’ll have to find out together, with plenty of value still out there especially if you think the purple rumor is just a fake move by some sharps to get a better line.
I can’t believe I just typed the last sentence.
