The tradition started with Bill Parcells but now winning coaches across all sports come to expect a Gatorade shower. Bettors can wager on the color of the liquid bath that the winning Super Bowl coach will receive.
What color will the liquid be that is poured on the head coach of the winning team? (Bovada)
- Clear/Water +300
- Lime/Green +300
- Yellow +300
- Orange +300
- Red +600
- Blue +750
- Purple +1200
There is no favorite. Clear liquid and/or water has been used four times since Super Bowl 35 as has orange, which was doused on Gary Kubiak after the Broncos won the championship last year.
Rarely is the color of the liquid associated with the winning team’s colors. The Steelers showered Mike Tomlin in yellow Gatorade in Super Bowl XLIII and the Pats spilled blue Gatorade on Bill Belichick in Super Bowl XLIX.

Falcons coach Dan Quinn got a yellow Gatorade bath to celebrate Atlanta’s NFC Championship victory. Yellow has only been used twice in the last sixteen years.
Bill Belichick didn’t celebrate the Patriots 36-17 win over the Steelers with a cold shower. There have been three times since Super Bowl XXXV that a coach as avoided the ice cold liquid. However, there are no odds on a coach staying dry.
It’s almost Super Sunday
