Super Bowl XLVIII Prop Bets!
We’re no football experts by any means, so instead of betting on Super Bowl stats, points, and penalties, we get jazzed about stupid stuff like the coin toss and what kind of hat Bruno Mars will wear during the halftime show!
Thank goodness for Super Bowl prop bets. There are some pretty hilarious ones this year, so keep an eye out for some of our favorites:
How long will it take opera singer Renee Fleming to sing the National Anthem? 2 minutes, 20 seconds is the magic over/under number, so choose wisely.
Will the coin toss be heads or tails? Seriously? If you don’t know the answer to this one, then go back to statistics class. 50/50 chance of either, so just take a wild guess.
How many times will Peyton Manning say ‘Omaha?’ Over/under oddsmakers have this doozy set at 27.5.
What kind of hat will Bruno Mars wear at halftime? Fedora is currently the strong favorite, but a fur hat, turque, and “no hat at all” are also options.
Will there be a power outage during the game? Beyonce’s halftime show last year was just so fierce, the entire power grid shut down. Chances are New Jersey has prepared for this one, so don’t count on a repeat performance.
Will Richard Sherman get a taunting penalty? In case you don’t remember, Sherman’s the guy who lost it during a post-game interview with Erin Andrews. That being said, Vegas is betting against this 4/1.
Will the announcers say “marijuana?” Both Colorado and Washington have legalized marijuana, so this match up has been dubbed the “Stoner Bowl.” Will FOX actually let their crew discuss this taboo topic? Unlikely odds of 7/2 make this one iffy.
Will the game go into overtime? Considering there’s never been an overtime in a Super Bowl game, it’s highly unlikely, but with odds at 13/2, it would be a huge payoff!
