LOS ANGELES – As the NFL Playoffs are just beginning, different Super Bowl 56 prop bets are beginning to open up. One thing that has shadowed over the Super Bowl has been COVID-19 and it has yet to be seen if the virus will have an impact on the game or not.

One of the main concerns surrounding Super Bowl 56 is whether or not it will be able to go on in Los Angeles as scheduled due to the rise in COVID cases in the LA area.

With that, legal online gambling sites have odds listed for different areas of concern regarding COVID-19 and the Super Bowl. Those odds include whether the coaches will see an impact as well as both starting quarterbacks.

Will Both Conference Championship Starting QBs Be Active For The Game?

  • Yes -5000
  • No +1000

Will Either Head Coach Miss The Super Bowl?

  • No -10000
  • Yes +1600

COVID’s Attack On The League

The surge in COVID-19 cases has taken a huge toll on the league with well over 300 total players testing positive for the virus. Along with players testing positive, different coaches around the league have also tested positive and missed games this season. Some of those coaches include Kevin Stefanski, Robert Saleh, and Nick Sirianni.

While some could make the argument that COVID could happen to anyone and that it could impact the players and coaches in the Super Bowl, it is hard seeing the NFL allow that to happen. The NFL recently reported that it would move the Super Bowl from Los Angeles to Dallas if the cases continue to rise.

If big named players and coaches test positive and are in jeopardy of missing the game, it is hard seeing the NFL ignore that meaning that the favored NFL odds on both lines are easy money.

An example of this would be the favorites to make it out of each conference, the Kansas City Chiefs and Green Bay Packers. It is safe to say that if either Patrick Mahomes or Aaron Rodgers were to enter COVID-19 protocols, the league would work to reschedule the game.
