One of the great things about sports, or life in general, is that if you want to bet on something, there is probably someone out there willing to take your money and let you do that.
No event brings that out more than the Super Bowl, where you can bet on anything and everything surrounding the game.
Today let’s take a look at some of the prop bets for Sunday’s game, and let’s limit it to all the stuff that happens off the field, I don’t want to risk any money on the actual game.
What will Luke Bryan be wearing when he starts singing the U.S. national anthem
Blue Jeans 1/2, Any other pants or shorts 3/2
It’s Luke Bryan, who is a wanna be GQ model who happens to attempt to sing country music, so I wouldn’t be shocked to see him come out wearing leather pants or some shit like that. But the odds aren’t great either way and there’s no big payout, so maybe put down $5 on this one and hope your night starts out with a win.
Pick: Any other pants or shorts
How many times will Trump be said on TV during broadcast
Over. This is almost free money.
How many times will “Gronk” or “Gronkowski” be said on TV during live broadcast
Over. Again, this is basically free money. He’s hurt, he’ll be on the sidelines with a camera on him at all times. Especially if a New England TE drops a pass or messes something up, they’ll be all over him.
Will “Houston, we have a problem” be said on TV during live broadcast?
Yes 5/2, No 1/4
No. Unless the power goes out again or some other crazy thing happens during the game, nobody should say this.
What color will Lady Gaga’s hair be when she comes on stage for the halftime show
Blonde 1/4, Any other Color 5/2
It’s the NFL, who usually has a stick up their ass, so I’ll go ahead and say she stay with blonde. Do you get bonus money if she has streaks of other colors in her hair?
Which song will Lady Gaga play first during the halftime show?
“Born this Way” 9/4, “Bad Romance” 5/2, “Edge of Glory” 6/1, “Poker Face” 10/1, “Just Dance” 10/1, “Any other song” 11/10
I’m tempted to take “Edge of Glory” because that seems like a song you could almost relate to football and the Super Bowl, but I would always advise against picking things like this just because musicians have so many things to choose from.
How many times will J.J. Watt be mentioned on TV during live broadcast
Over 1 -140 (or 5/7), Under 1 Even (or 1/1)
See. With the game in Houston I’m tempted to say over, but the Texans aren’t even playing. Still, all it takes is one guy to sack the QB and the announcers will be like, “Whoa looking like JJ Watt who plays his home games here!” I’ll say the Under 1/Even.
How many times will “deflate” or “Deflategate” be said on TV during live broadcast
Over 1½ Even (or 1/1), Under 1½ -140 (or 5/7)
Smash that over. Again, this is basically free money. The whole broadcast is going to be about this, especially if the Patriots are up late.
How many times will Gisele Bundchen be shown on TV during the broadcast?
Over 1½ +110 (11/10), Under 1½ -150 (2/3)
I like the under here. I don’t remember them ever showing her before, so that seems like the safe play.
Heads or tails?
Heads -102, Tails -102
Tails never fails. That’s science.
What color will the liquid be that is poured on the winning coach?
Clear 3/1, Lime/green 3/1, Orange 3/1, Yellow 3/1, Red 6/1, Blue 15/2, Purple 12/1
Clear and lime/green are the go-to for most sideline Gatorade, but I’ll take the team colors, pretty solid odds and you teams want to match on the sidelines.
If the Patriots win, will Brady, Belichick or Kraft be seen shaking Roger Goodell’s hand on TV?
Yes -180 (or 5/9), No +140 (or 7/5)
I’m tempted to say no. I don’t really ever remember teams shaking hands, just kind of being up there and then they get the trophy. This also factors in that the Patriots have to win to have that chance. But since I think they will win and there are three people in play for this, I’ll say yes.
So there you go, some great action to bet on that has almost nothing to do with the game. Take it to the bank, you’re rich now. You’re welcome.
