Super Bowl Prop Bets: Tab's Picks



One of the great things about the Super Bowl every year is the wonderful commercials. From talking babies talking about investments to fat guys telling people they're not "living the High Life," there have been many years that the commercials save the game.

The other great part of the Super Bowl is the prop bets. Thanks to the amount of money Las Vegas makes from this one-day event, you can bet on almost anything in the game, from who scores the first touchdown of the game to the MVP.

So, with a little help from a gambling website to provide the most current odds (as of noon on Saturday), here are Tab's picks for Super Bowl prop bets.
