(Las Vegas, NV) — Las Vegas sportsbooks are ready to rumble, as football fans wager on the Super Bowl.

Peyton Manning’s Denver Broncos are two-and-a-half point favorites over the Seattle Seahawks in Sunday’s big game.

Thanks to prop bets, fans can bet on other aspects of the game.

You can wager on whether either team can score in the game’s first six-and-a-half minutes, and if Manning will throw a touchdown pass in the third and fourth quarters.  There are also odds on whether the opening coin toss will come up heads or tails.

The Nevada Gaming Control Board says last year’s Super Bowl generated nearly $99 million in bets at the state’s sportsbooks.

Some oddsmakers think that record could be shattered this year.
