Gatorade Color Super Bowl Bet

How many of you will be betting on the color of the Gatorade at this weekend's Super Bowl?  People will be and the online sportsbooks like BetUS.com have odds on the event.  And I guess we don't know our Gatorade since some of us thought it only came in lime green.  Yeah we've seen orange come to think of it.

Now before any of the Gambling911.com readers start laughing, consider this:  The "What Color Will the Gatorade be?" Super Bowl betting prop promises one of the biggest payouts.

Red is slightly less than even paying at BetUS.com.  It's the favorite.  Last year, clear was the favorite.  This year, clear would pay out $30 for every $10 bet.  BetUS.com pays even odds on Yellow, 5/1 on orange, 6/1 on lime green and the payout on blue would be $150 for every $10 bet.

The Gatorade shower, also known as the Gatorade dunk and the Gatorade bath, is a sports tradition involving dumping a cooler full of liquid (most commonly Gatorade mixed with ice) over an American football coach's (or occasionally star player or owner's) head following a meaningful win. The tradition began with the New York Giants American football team in the mid-80s. According to several sources, including Jim Burt of the Giants, it began on October 28, 1985, when Burt performed the action on Bill Parcells after being angered over the coach's treatment of him that week, Burt insisted that Harry Carson be the one to dump the Gatorade on Parcells, because he was a favorite and wouldn't get in trouble. 

However, former Bears defensive tackle Dan Hampton claims he invented the shower in 1984 when the Bears dunked Mike Ditka upon clinching the NFC Central.  The phenomenon gained national attention in the 1986 Giants season. Parcells was doused after 17 victories that season, culminating with Super Bowl XXI.

Football coach George Allen's death may have been indirectly caused by an incident similar to a Gatorade Shower. Allen died on December 31, 1990 from ventricular fibrillation in his home in Palos Verdes Estates, California at the age of 72. Shortly before his death, Allen noted that he had not been completely healthy since some of his Long Beach State players dumped a bucket of ice-water on him following a season-ending victory over the University of Nevada, Las Vegas on November 17, 1990.
