Leading up to the Super Bowl, we'll be taking a look at various proposition bets for the 2010 Super Bowl, Super Bowl 44, Super Bowl XLIV, The Big Game, or whatever you want to call it. You can check out previous prop bet analysis on the upper right sidebar.

We've talked about the coin toss and the National Anthem, two prop bets that take place before all the action. Now it's time to talk about something that takes place after all, or at least most, of the action--the Gatorade shower!

Bodog has plenty of choices for you in the prop bet: What Color will the Gatorade be that is dumped on the Head Coach of the Winning Super Bowl Team?

There's lime green, yellow, orange, red, blue, clear/water, and whatever else they add or delete from this list after reading our analysis.

We might not be able to tell you exactly which color Gatorade will be dumped on the winning coach, but we can certainly narrow it down.

Go ahead and cross off orange, red, blue, and lime green from that list right away. The only way that any of those colors will make an appearance is if Bodog claims that the yellow Gatorade is really lime green, just to screw with everyone.

That leaves us with yellow (5/6 odds) and clear/water (37/20). Your safe bet here is to go with yellow, though you'll lose some juice (get it?). If you're feeling a little risky, though, clear/water is as safe a risk you can make at 37/20 odds this Super Bowl.

Let's take a look at the recent history of The Gatorade Shower.

Back in Super Bowl XL in 2006, Bill Cowher took a bath in the clear liquid.

In 2007, in a rainy Super Bowl XLI, Colts coach Tony Dungy found himself under a rain cloud shaped like a Gatorade bucket.

In Super Bowl XLII, Giants coach Tom Coughlin received the perfect reward for his team's upset win.

And last year, Mike Tomlin won one for the other thumb... and then got yellow Gatorade all over it.

So, you can go with the recent pick of yellow, or stick with the prior Super Bowl's clear/water.

If Gatorade Showers aren't your cup of... Gatorade. Try the Super Bowl Odds and Super Bowl Betting over at Doc's Sports.

Either way, this is a good prop bet for those looking to whet their appetite for wet coaches.
