It wouldn’t be the Super Bowl without a ton of non-sports betting options. Bovada has more than 500 Super Bowl prop bets, and while it’s definitely worth perusing the entire menu, we’ve rounded up some of the more entertaining ones.
Renee Fleming’s Anthem Length (In Seconds):
Over 2 minutes 25 seconds +120
Under 2 minutes 25 seconds -160
Betting on the length of the national anthem is as much a tradition as wagering on the outcome of the Super Bowl. This year’s performer will be opera singer and Rochester, N.Y., native Renee Fleming. This choice threw many off, as the Super Bowl has been known to bring in current pop stars.
Fleming will have two minutes and 25 seconds to sing the anthem. Only two of the past five singers have gone over two minutes: Jennifer Hudson and Alicia Keys.
How Many Viewers:
Over 112,000,000 -145
Under 112,000,000 +105
This probably isn’t a surprise, but the Super Bowl is usually the most-watched program of the year in the United States. The record viewership is more than 111 million, which was set two years ago when the New York Giants beat the New England Patriots for the second time in five years. Still, the over is favored because more and more people become fans each year.
What Color Will The Gatorade Bath Be:
Each year, the winning coach gets soaked with a tub of Gatorade, a tradition started by the Giants in the 1980s. However, the weather might play more of a factor than people think. If it is really cold, the players might spare the coach until they get into the locker room for the champagne party.
Cross-Sport Matchup: What Will Be Higher?
Jeff Green total points vs. Orlando -130
Russell Wilson completions in the game EVEN
There is only one NBA game on Sunday, as the Boston Celtics host the Orlando Magic. Bovada has an interesting cross-sport prop, which is fairly self-explanatory. On the year, Wilson averaged 16.1 completions per game, and it’s probably no coincidence that he’s going head-to-head with Green here, because Green is averaging 16.0 points per game this season.
Wilson did taper off down the stretch, averaging just 12.8 completions per game over his last four. As for Green, he’s averaged 16.2 points per game in January. However, he scores more on the road (16.5) than he does at home (15.6). He has faced Orlando three times this season and averaged 16 points per game.
