Many have speculated that Peyton Manning will retire after the Denver Broncos play the Carolina Panthers in Super Bowl 50 on Sunday. After missing six games and starting only nine during the regular season due to a foot injury, Manning’s days appear to be numbered with possibly one game left before he ends his career.

Bettors can get 5/1 odds on Manning announcing his retirement on Sunday in the postgame interview, while you would have to lay 1/10 that Manning will not announce his retirement at that time.

Taking it a step further, you can also bet on whether or not Manning will be shown crying at any point during the television broadcast at even better odds with Yes worth 6/1 and No at 1/12. Of course that could be tears of joy from winning Super Bowl 50 as an underdog or sadness following his second big game loss in three years.

A more likely scenario is Manning throwing a “Pick 6” in the Super Bowl, something he did six years ago with the Indianapolis Colts in a 31-17 loss to the New Orleans Saints.  A Yes on the Pick 6 possibility is worth 3/1 while you would have to lay 1/5 on that not happening.

In addition, Manning is a -165 favorite (bet $165 to win $100) to throw the first pick of the game versus Carolina quarterback Cam Newton, who is a +135 underdog (bet $100 to win $135). Conversely, Manning is a +135 underdog to throw the first touchdown with Newton a -165 favorite.

There are many more prop bets involving the quarterbacks, ranging from passing yards to rushing yards, with Manning +160 to total at least one yard on the ground. You can even get +275 that either backup QB will take a snap.

However, Super Bowl 50 props begin even before the big game kicks off. The coin toss is one of the most popular bets, with -105 available on both sides at the sportsbooks.

Tails is often viewed as the favorable side to wager on because heads is heavier and figures to land down more. History shows tails with a slight 25-24 edge in the past 49 Super Bowls after cashing in the last two, although heads won in the five prior to that.
