Super Bowl 2013 prop bets: 49ers bets getting oddly specific

USA TODAY Sports

The Super Bowl prop bets normally range from the standard on-field action to the weirdly mundane, and this year is no different.

One of the more fascinating storylines of the Super Bowl is the prop betting in Las Vegas. These lines consist of the various on-field action you'd expect to see, but some are almost comical in how specific they can get.


Niners Nation | Baltimore Beatdown


The latest betting lines from Brovada have all the standard stuff relating to the actual game. Colin Kaepernick's over/under on passing yards is at 232 1/2, and Frank Gore's statline is set at 82 1/2 rushing yards. The current Niners player favored to win MVP is Kaepernick with 8/5 odds, followed by Gore at 7/1 and Michael Crabtree at 14/1. If you have money to burn and like seeing fluke single-game performances, Delanie Walker has 100/1 odds right now.

The "cross sports" section is where things start to get weird. You have your pick of betting on outcomes like this:

Kobe Bryant Points Feb 3rd vs Detroit
+5½ (-115)

Randy Moss Receiving Yards Super Bowl XLVII
-5½ (-115)

Or this:

Evgeni Malkin Points Feb 3rd vs Washington
Pick (-115)

Frank Gore Receptions Super Bowl XLVII

And that's not even getting into the bizarre bets surrounding the National Anthem and halftime show, where we have such gems as these:
