The Super Bowl Gatorade Prop Bet: Are We Due for Red?
by Alex Shier
The Gatorade bath prop bet is a personal favorite of mine. With all the chaos and context of the Superbowl, it’s refreshing (pun?) to sprinkle money on something this miniscule.
If you’re not familiar with this prop, be ready to think about it every year. It’s a simple bet; guess which color Gatorade the winning coach will get showered in.

I know you’re probably thinking you can just choose a color all willy nilly …
You fool! You absolute fool! It’s much deeper. First you have to choose your Superbowl future. This is key. In order to predict the Gatorade, we must be the Gatorade.
If you’re looking for a super hot underdog Superbowl future bet, I’m not your guy. I am merely the conductor on this Patrick Mahomes bandwagon to the promise land. I’m aware it’s lame – but that’s a risk I’m willing to take.
Hypothetically, let’s say the Mahomes train keeps rolling and wins a Lombardi trophy. We must become the Chiefs. We must become Andy Reid and Patrick Mahomes. What do Andy Reid and Patrick Mahomes have in common? Two things, actually: They bleed Kansas City red, and would hunt you down like a wounded elk for a bottle of ketchup. I only know Pat Mahomes for sure but I mean c’mon … you don’t think Andy Reid would bathe a 12 oz ribeye in ketchup?
My prediction is that Patrick Mahomes will pay homage to his high school, college, and professional team, as well as his favorite condiment. I believe we’re going to have red gatorade waterfalls flowing down Andy Reid’s cargo shorts.
