It’s been reported that over $1 billion dollars is bet on the Super Bowl, including millions on simply prop bets. They are very entertaining and can range from mildly ridiculous to very ridiculous. Here just a few of them, and, if I were a betting man, which way I would lean. (Odds courtesy of hogshaven.com.) Will any player get a penalty for excessive celebration in the game? Yes +225 (9/4) No -350 (2/7) I have to think the Harbaugh brothers have taught their teams how to control their emotions, even if they don’t themselves on the sideline. How scary would that be to get a dumb 15-yard penalty and then get yelled at and, probably spittled on, by Jim Harbaugh? I’ll put down the $350 and take the hundred bucks on this one. What Color will the Gatorade (or liquid) be that is dumped on the head coach of the winning Super Bowl Team? Clear/Water 7/4 Orange 5/2 Yellow 5/2 Green 13/2 Red 13/2 Blue 13/2 Put my money on yellow. The lemon-lime is probably the most popular of the flavors, and I’m going with my gut on this one. That’s all the analysis I can offer here. How many times will “Harbaugh” be said during the game? Over/Under 20 ½ I have to take the over. We have two coaches named Harbaugh, not to mention their parents Jack and Jackie Harbaugh. They’ll eclipse this before the start of the second half. Lay down your money with confidence. How many times will Jack Harbaugh be shown on TV during the game? Over 1.5 (-140) (5/7) Under 1.5 (EVEN) (1/1) This is a slam dunk. I wish I was a betting man, because I’d take this one in a heartbeat. He’ll get 3-4 shots on camera, easily. Put some dead presidents on this one. Will Beyonce’s hair be curly/crimped OR straight at the beginning of the Super Bowl halftime show? Straight -140 (5/7) Curly/Crimped EVEN (1/1) Even though I really think it will be curly or crimped, the payout for the chance that it is straight is good enough for someone who won’t miss a few bucks to take the risk and go for it. A $140 bet will earn you 100 large if you get it right. Will Beyonce be joined by Jay Z on Stage during the Super Bowl Half Time Show? Yes +110 (11/10) No -150 (2/3) I’ll take the yes on this one. Anytime you can get a two-for-one deal with talent, you do it. Jay-Z will take the mic at some point, believe that. The Jigga will lay down some rhymes, and if you lay down $100, you can walk away with $110. Not a major haul, but you can go get yourself a nice 6-pack of good beer with that. Will Alicia Keys forget or omit at least 1 word of the official US National Anthem? Yes +150 (3/2) No -200 (1/2) I would be nervous to sing in front of millions of people watching, so I’m sure I’d omit a word somewhere. I think Alicia Keys will do a nice job, but the chances of her forgetting a word are pretty good. Just think about it; someone always leaves out an “a” or “the” or “of.” Lay 100 greenbacks on this one and you’ll come home with $150 in your pocket. And finally…How long will the post game handshake/hug last between Jim & John Harbaugh? Over/Under 7.5 seconds We know the Harbaugh brothers are close, but they are also manly men who won’t hold each other tenderly too long. One of them will be fired up and will break the embrace before 7.5 seconds. I’m calling it at 6 seconds, max. You would be wise to bet this one big. ***** Disclaimer: I’m in no way a betting expert, but am simply bored and intrigued by these prop bets. If you lose, please don’t come crying to me. But if you win, feel free to sing my praises or even share a slice of your winnings with me. Most of all, enjoy the game!
