- Super Bowl 55 prop bets are up and there are already a ton of prop bets for the game including ones that surround the two head coaches.
- Andy Reid for the Kansas City Chiefs and Bruce Arians for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers have five five betting lines so far that sports fans can put money on for SB 55.
TAMPA BAY, Fla. – Super Bowl 55 will take place on February 7, in what will likely be known as the best Sunday of 2021, and bets are up for the big day including prop bets for the head coaches of the two teams.
Head coach Andy Reid of the reigning Super Bowl Champion Kansas City Chiefs and head coach Bruce Arians of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers will each try and lead their teams to a Championship victory at Raymond James Stadium but not before having a few wagers placed on them by NFL fans.
Sportsbooks like BetOnline have listed various prop bets on the two leaders and what will occur during the 2021 Super Bowl action.
Props On Reid & Arians For Super Bowl 55
Andy Reid has been a head coach for 22 years and eight of those years have been with the Kansas City Chiefs beginning in 2013. Even in his worst season as the Chiefs coach, the 62-year-old managed 9 wins that year and has never gone below that with the team. Last year, he won his first Super Bowl as a head coach and the second of his entire coaching career. Kansas City will be taking the field this year hoping to keep their Champion title intact.
Bruce Arians and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers will have a home-field advantage, for the first time in Super Bowl history. Arians is 68 years old with less head coaching experience than Reid at only seven years in total. This is his second season with Tampa Bay. Last year he had a record of 7-9 with the team but since adding Tom Brady as their quarterback in 2020, the Bucs and Arian had an 11-5 season that landed them in the Super Bowl.
But enough about the coaches and their histories. Let’s get down to the nitty-gritty fun prop bets that have been posted for sports bettors to wager on involving the duo.
Coach to be Mentioned 1st After Kickoff
- Andy Reid (-120)
- Bruce Arians (-120)
For this bet, the odds are the same for each coach because it could go either way as Reid is the coach of the reigning champs while it’s Arians’ stadium, making a gamblers’ guess as good as any bookkeeper for this wager. It may very well come down to who wins the coin toss, but given Andy Reid’s history being in Super Bowls, it could very well be him.

- Andy Reid (-120)
- Bruce Arians (-120)
Again, the same rule applies here for the odds being even because Reid has the better team as far as records are concerned while the game is happening on Arians’ turf. For those betting on the first prop, it may serve them well to double down and pick the same coach for this prop.
Coach to Have Nostrils Seen First During Game
- Bruce Arians (-200)
- Andy Reid (+150)
Bruce Arians has been known to flair his nostrils a lot more than Andy Reid, making him the favored choice for this wager. During the 2020 season, Arians has also chosen to use a clear face shield rather than a traditional mask most times.

Andy Reid wore a traditional mask at the AFC Championship with his mic tucked under his mask and his nose still covered. He could very well choose to do that again as it seemed to be a winning formula against the Buffalo Bills.
Primary Color of Bruce Arians Flat Cap
- Red (-125)
- White (+150)
- Gray (+175)
- Black (+500)
Arians’ always wears a flat cap the way Reid eats a cheeseburger after every Chiefs’ victory. He typically goes for team colors making red the favorite choice. However, since becoming the head coach of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, he’s also sported the gray flat cap often. He even wore one the day he signed with the Bucs. Those that wanted to get a better payout on this bet shouldn’t hesitate to take Gray at +175.

- Andy Reid (-130)
- Bruce Arians (-110)
Reid edges out as the favorite simply because the commentators could be discussing the Kansas City Chiefs’ trying to win back-to-back Super Bowls. The fact that the Chiefs are the higher seed and are favored to win this game might have something to do with Andy Reid being favored as well. However, this is simply speculation and NFL bettors seeking a safe payout or a profitable payout may want to fade these odds.
Super Bowl 55
Super Bowl 55 will be broadcast on the CBS Network with kickoff set for 6:30 p.m. EST. These particular wagers need to be in before then. And while they haven’t posted one yet, there may be a cheeseburger Andy Reid wager listed before the game begins because it was a beloved bet for all NFL Super Bowl bettors last year.
