The Super Bowl LII match up is finally set, but the fun is just beginning.

The New England Patriots will take on the Philadelphia Eagles at 4:30 p.m. Feb. 4. History is on the line: Tom Brady and the Patriots are shooting for their sixth Super Bowl win and second in-a-row; the Eagles are vying for their first Lombardi Trophy.

Beyond the action on the field is the excitement taking place off of it — namely, gambling.

Diehards live and breathe with point spreads and Super Bowl MVP odds. But in 2018, you can gamble on everything.

Literally. Everything.

Presented without interruption are a few of the best prop bets for this year’s Super Bowl, according to BetDSI.com. They range from guesses on what Patriots quarterback Tom Brady will be wearing on his injured throwing hand, what broadcasters will say, what Justin Timberlake’s halftime show will look like and, perhaps most importantly, who will emerge victorious from the Puppy Bowl.

Of course, all of these lines are subject to change.
