Sportsbook sets over/under on John Fox references during Super Bowl 50

With the Super Bowl comes dozens of prop bets for gamblers to choose from, and this year, one Sportsbook is offering a prop with a Bears flavor.

Oddsmakers at Bovada set the over/under on “How many times will ‘John Fox’ be said during the broadcast?” at one.

The over feels like a pretty good bet on this one considering Fox’s history with both teams. The current Bears coach led Carolina to the Super Bowl during the 2003 season and guided Denver to an AFC Championship in 2013.

Bovada notes that halftime mentions don’t qualify.

Sunday’s game might be a tough one to watch for Fox, who was fired by Carolina in 2010 and by Denver in 2015.

Jim Nantz and Phil Simms will have the call for CBS and will be joined by reporters Tracy Wolfson and Evan Washburn.
