2012 Super Bowl Prop Bets: Coin Toss, Kick Off, MVP Award, Eli Manning, Victor Cruz, Hakeem Nicks

The Super Bowl prop bets are all but set in stone, and one can not imagine the kind of bets a degenerate gambler can place during Sunday's contest between the New York Giants and New England Patriots (6:30 p.m. ET on NBC). According to the sports betting website Bovada, a sports fan can bet on the simple things (who will win the coin toss?) or very outlandish things (how many times will Peyton Manning be mentioned during the TV broadcast?)

Currently, Giants' quarterback Eli Manning has the second-best odds to win the game's MVP award at 9-4, while Patriots quarterback Tom Brady is the odds-on favorite at 7-5.

Surprisingly, three Patriots -- tight end Rob Gronkowski (6-1) and Aaron Hernandez (7-1) and running back BenJarvus Green-Ellis (15-2) -- have the three-best odds to score the Super Bowl's first touchdown. meanwhile, Giants wide receivers Victor Cruz and Hakeem Nicks and running back Ahmad Bradshaw have odds of 8-1.

As for the outlandish? Well, if you'd like to bet on how many times Eli Mannings' brother, Petyon Manning, will be shown on TV, you can. The over-under is set at 3 1.2-times with a money-line payout of (-135) for the over and (-105) for the under.
