Super Bowl Gatorade colour 2021? Prop bet odds, tips and result

Throw on some champions merch, make a confetti angel and dump a cooler full of Gatorade on your coach – it’s every Super Bowl winner’s prerogative.

Whether Kansas City Chiefs or Tampa Bay Buccaneers win the showpiece tonight, it’s fairly safe to assume one of Andy Reid or Bruce Arians is going to get a dousing.

Only on four occassions since Super Bowl 35 has the winning coach avoided a soda shower from his players, with orange the most popular colour in recent seasons (4 in 10 years). The Gatorade bath has twice been blue, while yellow and purple have each appeared once in the last 10 years.

Last year, Reid was covered in a tub of the orange stuff as the Chiefs celebrated their first Super Bowl victory in 50 years. If you fancy a repeat, the odds on orange (and blue too!) are shortening.

But a former Gatorade executive told The Athletic it is “intentionally randomised”, with up to three coolers with different colours lined up for the players to grab when the fourth quarter ends.

“Nobody can actually tell you what flavor it’ll be,” the former executive said. “The best guess they could give you is the two or three options.”

And, be warned: the market can’t always be trusted. Last year, purple shortened dramatically on Super Bowl Sunday but the winning colour was red at +400 (or 4/1) odds.
