- The odds that Andy Reid will coach Super Bowl 54 (Feb. 2nd) in a Hawaiian shirt are at a long +1400
- Bovada also released a prop on the Chiefs coach eating a cheeseburger during the broadcast
- Reid celebrated AFC Championship win with a cheeseburger before going to sleep
Hawaiian shirts and cheeseburgers happen to be two of Andy Reid’s favorite things.
The Chiefs head coach has been known to wear Hawaiian button downs when he’s not in Kansas City red. Reid also admitted recently that he celebrated winning the AFC Championship by eating a cheeseburger and going to bed.
Bovada has posted two related prop bets in the build up to Super Bowl 54 between Reid’s Chiefs and the San Francisco 49ers. They set of Reid wearing a Hawaiian shirt during Super Bowl 54 at +1400. The odds of Big Red eating a cheeseburger before the end of the game opened at +1200.
Odds Andy Reid Will Wear Hawaiian Shirt During Super Bowl
|Outcome||Odds at Bovada|
Odds taken Jan. 27
Pick: No (-10000)
The Chiefs arrived in Miami on the weekend. Quarterback Patrick Mahomes and several other Chiefs players were decked out in Hawaiian shirts to show support for their head coach.
Is that enough to entice Reid to possibly wear a Hawaiian shirt despite “No” coming in as the overwhelming -10000 favorite?

Bill Belichick Has Been Model Of Coaching Comfort
There have been many coaches who wore comfortable attire during previous Super Bowls. Look no further than Bill Belichick, whose extensive selection of Patriots hoodies worn during Super Bowls triggered many prop bets over the years.
Pete Carroll has been known to go casual during two Super Bowl appearances, wearing a windbreaker, Khaki pants, and white runners. Los Angeles Rams coach Sean McVay wore a similar outfit in last year’s Super Bowl loss to the New England Patriots.

However, there’s casual and then there’s Jimmy Buffet-casual, and the latter would likely consist of a Hawaiian shirt.
As tempting as the +1400 line may be, Reid coming out in a Hawaiian shirt is highly unlikely as it would distract from the Chiefs winning their first Super Bowl since 1970.

Odds Andy Reid Eats Cheeseburger Before End of SB Broadcast
|Prop Outcome||Odds at Bovada|
Pick: Yes (+1200)
The more likely scenario here is Reid eats a cheeseburger before the end of the Super Bowl 54 broadcast. The pictures or live “feed” of Reid eating the burger must be shown on the Fox telecast in order for it to be considered a winner.
Reid told reporters that, following Kansas City’s AFC Championship win over Tennessee, he had a cheeseburger and went to sleep.
This isn’t Reid’s first time expressing his enjoyment for a good cheeseburger. During the 2012 NFL season — his last as the head coach of the Philadelphia Eagles — Reid gave a post-game speech and ended it with “Cheeseburgers for everyone!”
Could it now become a ritual as Kansas City heads into the Super Bowl?
Reid appeared in an episode of Guy Fieri’s “Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives” last year when the show made a stop in K.C. Rumour even has it Reid chose the Pigwich as the place to eat for the episode.
There’s no recollection of a head coach eating during or right after a Super Bowl game, but Reid could very well be the trailblazer behind the in-game cheeseburger.
The question becomes when can we possibly see this happen? The likely scenario is following a Chiefs victory.
Bovada has the Chiefs as 1.5-point favorites and while players could be celebrating with champagne in the locker-room, Reid could very well break out the cheeseburgers.
It’s definitely worth taking the chance.
Pick: Yes (+1200)
Let's have fun and keep it civil.
