From the color of the postgame Gatorade bath to how long it will take for country singer Luke Bryan to get through the National Anthem, gamblers reportedly have as many as 700 different ways to wager on this year’s Super Bowl, including a variety of unusual “proposition bets,” or “props.”
NewsChannel 4 Oklahoma City reports on its kfor.com website that the over/under for Bryan’s “Star-Spangled Banner” is set at 120.5 seconds (Over -200/Under +155), while water (or clear) is a +220 favorite for the postgame dunk, followed by blue at +300, yellow and red both at +350, orange at +450, green at +1,250 and the longest of long shots, no bath at all at +2,500.
Other unusual bets include “Will a streaker enter the field during the game?” (Yes +1,000); and “Will Tom Brady announce his retirement immediately after the Super Bowl?” (Yes +250).
A number of potential bets concern the Super Bowl ads, such as whether NBA star James Harden will appear in a commercial (Yes -250/No +185) or how many ads will feature Peyton Manning, with the over/under set at 1.5 (Over +120/Under -150).
Then there’s the issue of what halftime star Lady Gaga will be wearing, with options including wings (+500), a tail (+700), an “I Voted Hillary” T-shirt (+1,200) and nothing at all (a huge long shot at +10,000).
The game between the New England Patriots and Atlanta Falcons airs this Sunday on Fox at 6:30 p.m. ET.
