Which color Gatorade will be poured on the winning coach's head? What are the odds for Super Bowl 50? Find out here.

Super Bowl 50 is just days away, and Las Vegas is getting crazy. Bets on odds and props are surging from things related to the game to what color the Gatorade poured on the winning coach's head will be.

The Carolina Panthers are the favorites in this weekend's game, with their odds opening at -3.5 and increasing to -6.0, according to OddsShark. Whether the increase was influenced by the millions of game-related bets, doubts about Peyton Manning or by Panther players donning intimidating luchador masks at media day is determined, but betting Broncos fans are likely giddy considering the team's odds. After all, Denver hasn't lost a game by more than a touchdown since mid-November.

As seen in the Bengals' Wild Card loss, betting for the underdogs can be the smarter move to make. Cincinnati was at one point an eight-point home underdog despite losing one regular season game by more than four points--and in that game, AJ McCarron was thrown into action on the team's second drive after Andy Dalton fractured his thumb. Ultimately, in the Wild Card game, the Bengals lost by just two points, so most people who took the underdog made some money.

If you're not into betting on the games itself, don't fret. There's plenty more to bet on!
