Sportsbooks in Las Vegas offer a whole bunch of "proposition bets" on the Super Bowl. Here's a few of our very own.

Looking for some gambling action on Super Bowl LII? Good for you. Hope you win.

Granted, there are some good prop bets to be legally placed in locales where sports-booking isn't quote-unquote taboo.

They cover all that goofy stuff like "MVP of the Super Bowl," "length of the national anthem" and "heads or tails." What they don't cover is Philly's rather unique civic personality.

This is a travesty. But this is why I'm here. Below, you'll find 52 (or LII) prop bets dealing with the Eagles hometown and surrounding areas.

Sure, they're not on the board at the Bellagio. But here's what you can do: Hit your bookie up and see if he'll take action on 'em. For amusement purposes only, of course. We don't condone illegality here.

With no further ado, Philly odds, broken down by category, many presented as over/under propositions:
