Las Vegas is set to erupt once again as the Super Bowl nears. Millions of dollars (if not more!) will flow through betting websites during the big game. While most folks will likely be betting solely on the outcome between Tampa Bay and Kansas City, there are many other things that gamblers can wager on as well.
According to the website Odds Shark, “A prop bet – or proposition bet – is a wager that doesn’t necessarily correlate with the outcome of the game.” Instead of simply betting on the outcome of the game, you would bet on things like how many yards a player will rush for or how many touchdown passes a quarterback will throw.
We put together a list of the biggest “prop bets” that you can try to get rich off of during Super Bowl LV. Some of them are stupid yet hilarious.
1. How Long Will It Take Eric Church To Sing The U.S. National Anthem at the Super Bowl?
|OVER 1 minute 55 seconds||-220|
|UNDER 1 minute 55 seconds||+155|
Eric Church is known to go off the cuff when he’s belting out classics, so keep that in mind. It’s also worth noting that the last time the Super Bowl was in Tampa, it took Jennifer Hudson two minutes 10 seconds to sing the anthem. Maybe it’s something in the water?
2. Will Eric Church Forget Or Omit A Word From The National Anthem?
For the sake of the country? We hope not. For the sake of having something to laugh at on the Internet? We hope so.
3. What Color Will The Liquid Be That Is Poured On The Game-Winning Coach?
If we know Andy Reid at all, the Gatorade container will be filled with chili. That’s not an option in Vegas so you’ll have to think outside the box a bit. We’re going to go with the classic red gatorade since both teams have that color on their jerseys.
4. Will A Fan Run Onto The Field During The Game?
Knowing that this year’s Super Bowl will have fewer fans than normal, we don’t think anyone is going to run out on the field. Some of the folks will have their COVID-19 vaccines though. So maybe a few attendees will just be itching to get things back to normal and entertain us by getting wrecked by security guards after storming the field.
5. Will Any Player Propose To His Girlfriend On The Field After The Game?
Valentine’s Day is near after all. While a player might not propose to his girlfriend, we’re willing to bet Tom Brady is going to kiss his son on the lips again.
6. Will Any Scoring Drive Take Less Time Than It Takes To Sing The Anthem?
The Chiefs have a ton of speedy offensive weapons, so we’re going to say that yes they will be able to score on a drive faster than Eric Church can sing the national anthem.
7. Will The Weeknd Mention Canada During The Super Bowl 55 Halftime Show?
Hell no! This is America’s game baby! If Canada wanted representation in the Super Bowl they should have moved the Bills to Toronto back when they sucked.
8. Who will win the Puppy Bowl?
We know this isn’t exactly the Super Bowl, but we’re itching to get our gamble on any way we can. We’re taking Team Ruff this year at the Puppy Bowl. They’re more experienced and work a lot harder in the offseason compared to Team Fluff.
9. How Many Times Will Roger Goodell Be Shown?
|OVER 1.5 Times||-120|
|UNDER 1.5 Times||-120|
We hope for everyone’s sake that Roger Goodell won’t be shown at all. Show us the cheerleaders!
10. Who Will The Super Bowl 55 MVP Mention First In His Speech?
|Family or Family Members||+550|
|Does Not Mention Any of the Above||+800|
Any of these would be better than mentioning the coronavirus.
These are just a few of the prop bets out there right now. Be sure to keep checking back for more. Good luck out there!
