Ridiculous 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. Advertising companies 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 $4.5 million while a 60-second spot goes for a jaw-dropping $9 million. Which is up from $3.8 million in 2013 and $4 million price tag in 2014 . 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 XLIX 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. How Long Will it Take Idina Menzel to Sing the US National Anthem?
- Over 2 minutes 1 second
- Under 2 minutes 1 second
My Thoughts: I Googled Idina Menzel and discovered that she’s an American actress and singer-songwriter. She rose to prominence when she originated the role of Maureen Johnson in the Broadway musical Rent.
I think Broadway musicals are long and boring, so I’m going to say “Yes” shy drags it out past 2 minutes.
My Pick: Over
2. Will Marshawn Lynch grab his crotch after scoring a TD in the game?
- Yes +400
- No -600
My Thoughts: The fact that the betting world is saying the favorite is yes he will grab his crotch is pretty awesome. I mean, it’s not like it’s his signature move or he’ll be thinking about it all game. This seems like a sucker bet. I’m sure Lynch will be focused on winning not on the fact he should grab his junk after a score.
My Pick: No
3. How many times will Katy Perry be mentioned in the 1st Half?
- Over 2 (-125)
- Under 2 (-110)
My Thoughts: If Super Bowl XLVIX is a low scoring defensive game, one in which there are a lot of punts and 3 & outs, I guess I could see Al Michaels or Cris Collinsworth having to mention Katy Perry more than once, but odds are it’ll be football talk the whole first half.
Mind you, Katy is very easy on the eyes and sex does sell. There are a lot of people excited about her performance and TV producers hardly every stir away from getting a good shot of her rack. I’m going to say no, but wouldn’t be surprised if she’s over talked about.
My Pick: Under
4. How many times will “Deflated” Balls be said to during the game?
- Over 3(-130)
- Under 3 (-110)
My Thoughts: My god, I hope they don’t bring up the “Deflated” Balls topic throughout the game. It’s such a boring storyline. The Colts lost, they lost badly. Nothing could have saved them in that game, especially “Deflated” Balls. I’m also sick of all the ball jokes… we get it already, “Brady likes his balls soft”
My Pick: Under …My Balls (zing!)
5. What will be higher:
- Russell Wilson’s Passing Yards -15.5 (-120)
- US National Average Gas Price (in cents) on Monday, February 2nd +15.5 (-120)
My Thoughts: Who would actually bet on this! Seriously, if I’m at a Super Bowl party and someone tells me they placed a bet on the US National Average Gas Prices in relation to the game, I will make that guy my personal bitch -He will be the butt of all my jokes. Dude, it’s the weekend, so you need to live a little. I like to wager as much as the next guy, but if you can’t find a bet in the biggest game of the year, you’re not my kind of person.
My Pick: No Bet
6. What Color will the Gatorade (or liquid) be that is dumped on the Head Coach of the Winning Super Bowl Team?
- Orange (3/2)
- Clear/Water (3/1)
- Yellow (15/4)
- Red (15/2)
- Blue (15/2)
- Green (15/1)
My Thoughts: I think what’s really funny about this bet is the fact these odds have actually changed from last season’s game. I checked last years article and there are better odds for Clear/Water -lol. Does that mean I think they’re a better bet? … No. Betting on the color of a sports drink is just stupid.
My Pick: Whatever, I’ll pick Blue
7. Which song will Katy Perry perform first at Halftime?
- Roar (5 to 4)
- Dark Horse (5 to 2)
- Firework (5 to 2)
- This Is How We Do (16 to 1)
- Last Friday (20 to 1)
- E.T. (20 to 1)
- Waking Up In Vegas (20 to 1)
- Wide Awake (20 to 1)
My Thoughts: There are actually more bets for Katy Perry in this years Super Bowl than anything. I could have done an entire article on just Super Prop Bets for her. There are bets on what she’ll wear at the game, what color will her hair be, bets on whether she’ll be wearing pants, a dress or shorts… it’s unreal.
I’m not that familiar with her music, but do know that Lenny Kravitz will be her guest performer, so I can almost guarantee they play American Women.
My Pick: Put me down for Dark Horse
8. What will happen with the Dow Jones the day after the Super Bowl?
- Market Up (-140)
- Market Down (Even)
My Thoughts: Another loser bet for those Wallstreet guys trying to fit in at your Super Bowl Party. Their girlfriend dragged them along and they standout like a sore thumbs. You can spot these yuppies easily, they tend to wear business casual clothing like khakis or polo shirts with slacks. They think they’re better than you. Make them stand for the game.
My Pick: Down
9. Will Al Michaels refer to the point spread, total, odds on who wins game or any prop bet during thre game?
- Yes (+200)
- No (-300)
My Thoughts: This is actually a pretty cool bet as I have for some time have wondered about Al Michaels. I’m convinced he puts money on games and there has been hints of it over the years. There was this game back in 2010 (see video) where the last play of the game had nothing to do with actual game, but made a huge impact on the point spread.
My Pick: Yes
10. Who will the Super Bowl MVP of the Game thank first?
- Teammates 3 to 2
- Coach 12 to 1
- Family 12 to 1
- God 3 to 1
- Owner 12 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. With the way Richard Sherman talks about himself, it could happen and pay really well.
Realistically you have to think whoever wins will thank either God or his teammates first. I would think Tom Brady would thank his teammates first, he seems a humble guy (hehe)
My Pick: Teammates
