Ridiculous Super Bowl Prop BetsRidiculous Super Bowl Bets

The Super Bowl is big for so many reasons. The players and fans of both teams have their hearts set on being Super Bowl Champions, but there are so many other elements to Super Bowl Sunday. Companies and brands dump millions into advertising to capture the worlds attention in hopes of selling their crap to the public. This year, a 30-second spot is an amazing $4 million while a 60-second spot goes for a jaw-dropping $8 million. Which is up from $3.8 million in 2013 and $3.5 million price tag in 2012 . Usually, there are a few big movie trailers that try to kick off the year by building hype for the hottest must-see blockbusters. The art form of a “Must-See” movie trailer can’t be denied these days, yet spending millions of dollars to miss the mark is crippling. Lets also not forget about the bars, pubs, and restaurants that fans will be attending all over the world, each host location will have a chance to pull in their biggest single day earnings of the year. Yet the real hidden gem of this yearly mega-event doesn’t come with a side of fries.

I’ll admit it, I drop more cash on food, beverages, and “friendly wagers” on Super Bowl Sunday than any other NFL day of the year. But for big name online sportsbooks or Las Vegas Casinos, money trades hands like you could only imagine. With bets as crazy as calling “Heads or Tails” for the game’s kickoff, you know if you looked hard enough, the insane prop bets would surely be worth a laugh.

***The Following Super Bowl Prop Bets are real ridiculous wagers you can make for the Super Bowl XLVII with an online sportsbook. I am not plugging any single sportsbook, nor am I saying you should gamble, I’m simply pointing out some hilarious Super Bowl Prop Bets. I researched many providers to bring you these top 10 hilarious bets for a laugh.***

 

1. Renee FlemingWill Renee Fleming forget or omit at least 1 word of the official US National Anthem? 

Odds:

  • Yes: 3 to 1

My Thoughts: Renée Fleming is an American soprano who sings French opera ( I Googled her). So considering the only opera singer I’ve heard in my life was that blue alien in The Fifth Element , I’m going to say yes?

My Pick: Yes

 

2. Peyton ManningHow many times will Peyton Manning say “Omaha” during the game?

 odds:
  • Over 27.5 (-135)
  • Under 27.5

My Thoughts: 27 times is  a lot, even for Peyton Manning. That’s roughly around the same amount of pass attempts they predict he’ll have throughout the game. Although, Manning does love to say “Omaha” sometimes 3 to 4 times before a play, so this could not only be close to the over, but a fun Prop bet to count throughout the game.

My Pick: Over

 

3. Will any member of the Red Hot Chili Peppers be shirtless during their performance?

  • Yes (-150)
  • No (+110)

My Thoughts: It’s really cold out, so “No” makes the most sense. The Red Hot Chili Peppers are also not in their 20′s anymore, so I doubt they want to freeze to death. Wow…I’m getting old? I sound like I’m going to knit them socks and sweaters and Fedex them to East Rutherford for the game. So…for that matter, I’m going to say Yes, Flea will be in a diaper.

My Pick: Yes.

 

Michael Crabtree Shut Down4. Will Michael Crabtree mention Richard Sherman in a tweet during the Super Bowl from kickoff until final whistle?

Odds:

  • Yes (+300)
  • No (-500)

My Thoughts: The 49er’s have been talking all week. Colin Kaepernick unloaded on Richard Sherman on Thursday saying “His comments were ridiculous. If you have to tell people how good you are, then how good are you really?” You’ve got to figure if Sherman is beat for a big pass, Crabtree will be quick on the draw. If you want to follow Crabtree, Sherman, or Kaepernick on twitter, I listed their handles below. While you’re at it, add Gridiron Experts, I’ll be running my mouth as usual after a couple Super Bowl Beers:

My Pick: Yes!

 

5. Who will Barack Obama pick to win the game?

Odds:

  • Seahawks (+110)
  • Broncos (-150)

My Thoughts: I like Obama, but who cares, and who bets on this?

Actually…Obama should bet on this Super Bowl Prop bet. He should make a secret bet and then announce his pick 10 minutes later. It’s genius really. Get some of the people’s money back from these sportsbook blood suckers.

My Pick:  He likes the Bears, so he likes Defense. I think he’ll pick Seattle.

 

6. What Color will the Gatorade (or liquid) be that is dumped on the Head Coach of the Winning Super Bowl Team?

  • Orange (1 to 1)
  • Clear/Water (5/2)
  • Yellow (15/4)
  • Red (15/2)
  • Blue (10/1)
  • Green (15/1)

My Thoughts: This is another suckers bet. Even the Seahawks aren’t going to drink Blue or Green Gatorade just because those are their team colors, no team is that superstitious.

My Pick: Orange

 

7.  Will Knowshon Moreno cry during the singing of the National Anthem?

Odds:

  • Yes (+170)
  • No (-250)

My Thoughts: This could so easily be rigged. If I were buddies with Knowshon, I would be like: “Dude, I bet my whole pay check on you crying during the National Anthem, so put on your best Oscar performance.”

My Pick: No

 

8. What will happen with the Dow Jones the day after the Super Bowl?

Dow JonesOdds:

  • Market Up -140 (5/7)
  • Market Down EVEN (1/1)

My Thoughts: If I’m at a Super Bowl party and someone tells me they placed a bet on the Dow Jones in relation to the game, I will make that guy my personal bitch -He will be the butt of all my jokes. The reason being is it’s called Super Bowl Sunday. Dude, it’s the weekend, so you need to live a little. I like to invest/wager as much as the next guy, but if you can’t find a bet in the biggest game of the year that doesn’t involve your job for Monday morning, you’re not my kind of person.

My Pick: Down

9. How many times will “12th man” be said during the game?

Odds:

  • 2  (-110)
  • Under (-120)

My Thoughts: Considering this game is not being played in Seattle, I find it hard to see the 12th man being mentioned more than 3 times. It could be talked about if Denver gets a false start penalty, but that wasn’t a common penalty for the Broncos throughout the year. The crowd is made up of a lot of corporate suits and celebrities, so I don’t think the crowd volume will be a factor at all.

My Pick: Under

 

10. Who will the Super Bowl MVP of the Game thank first?

Odds:jesus plays football

  • Teammates 5 to 4
  • Coach 12 to 1
  • Family 15 to 2
  • God 4 to 1
  • Owner 5 to 1
  • Does Not Thank Anyone 5 to 2

My Thoughts:  I wish there was an option for the Super Bowl MVP to thank himself, that would be so funny, and with the way Richard Sherman talks about himself, it could pay really well.

Realistically you have to think whoever wins will thank either God or his teammates first. I would think Peyton Manning would thank his teammates first, he seems a humble guy.

My Pick: Teammates
