The Westgate Las Vegas SuperBook released nearly 400 prop bets at 10 p.m. ET on Jan. 26 for wagering on Super Bowl LI.

Here are 10 interesting ones that cashed.



Tom Brady was the favorite at 10-11 odds and showed why. Leading a comeback form down 28-3, Brady went 43-of-62 for 466 yards and two TDs to earn MVP honors.

Player to score first TD

When Devonta Freeman ran it in from 5 yards out in the second quarter, we had our first TD of the game. Freeman was 7-1 to score the first TD.

Will there be a special teams or defensive touchdown?

Yes +175
No -200

Robert Alford (ATL) will intercept a pass:

Yes +500
No -700

Largest lead of the by game by either team: 16.5 points

Over -120
Under EVEN

Longest touchdown of the game: 49.5 yards

Over -110
Under -110

Alford's incredible 82-yard interception return in the second quarter made the score 21-0 and cashed all of these props.

Total rushing + receiving yards by James White (NE): 28.5

Over -110
Under -110

All White did was have 14 catches for 110 yards (and a TD) and rush for 29 more yards on six carries (and score another 2 TDs). This prop wasn't even close.

Total receiving yards by Julian Edelman (NE): 89.5

Over -110
Under -110

Patriots fans will forever remember Edelman's amazing fourth-quarter grab, but a couple early drops kept him 3 yards away from cashing the over.

At Caesar's Palace

Will a PAT or field goal hit the goalpost?

Yes +425
No -550

Stephen Gostkowski continued his shaky 2016 season, hitting the right goalpost in the third quarter, keeping the score Atlanta 28, New England 9.

Will there be overtime?

Yes +700
No -1100

For the first time in Super Bowl history, this prop bet cashed and New England scored a touchdown and converted a two-point conversion in the final minute to tie the game at 28 and send the game into overtime.

Who will have more?

Patriots + Falcons points -5.5

Westbrook scored 19 of OKC's final 22 points and finished with 42 points, but had only four rebounds and eight assists to finish with 54. The Falcons and Patriots combined for 62 total points, covering the 5.5 spread.

Stephen Curry (GS) POINTS + ASSISTS -2.5
Patriots + Falcons first half points

Curry had a big game on Saturday night in a rare loss for Golden State, scoring 35 points with nine assists. That was far greater than the 24 combined points in the first half between the two Super Bowl teams.
