Centerville, South Dakota’s Steve Schoepf is betting on Super Bowl favorite the Los Angeles Rams.

But it’s not just betting on the teams that attract the Super Bowl. Players can also make side bets during play called prop bets, including the team with the longest punt return and even something as obscure as a field goal or extra run will hit. upright or crossbar?
“I’ve always bet there will be security, which is far from the case, and I really hit it big, one year,” Schoepf said.
