Idina Menzel Inspires Millions of Children to Sing
How long will it take our favorite Disney star to complete the US National Anthem? Over-unders are at 2 minutes and a second. For those of you who don't think this broadway singer will remember the lyrics you can always wager on her forgetting words as well.
Marshawn Lynch Helps Himself
What a media beast this guy is becoming, and all because he REALLY doesn't want to be there. If you're looking to make a bet, Bovada is offering a wager on whether or not he will grab his crotch after scoring a touchdown. I'm going with yes.
We get to see Gisele how many times?
Tom Brady is a lucky man, but will you luck out with her making more than 1 appearance on the big screen during the show? Over under is 1.5 appearances on live tv.
It's been on ESPN's mind for days now and whether not it's going to be on the mind of the announcers for the Super Bowl is anyones guess. But if you want in on the action, keep count of how many times "deflated" or "deflate" is mentioned during the game. Over-under action is 3 times, bonus if they actually say "deflategate".
Gatorade Always Makes a Splash
Can they separate the flavor from the color? I'm not sure, but at the end of the game I'm sure one of the coaches will be drenched, here's your chance to bet on the color of the sugary sweet drink. Are you going to go with orange, yellow, blue, red, green, or did they just have water in that sucker this year?
Katy Perry's Hair Color
What color hair will Katy be sporting at the Super Bowl half-time show? Blonde, brunette, redhead, or will she go with something more exotic prehaps a purple or blue? Bonus points if she changes hair color during a costume switch.
Bill Belichick's Hoodie
You've got plenty of color to bet on this year as well, what color will Bill's hoodie be (assuming he's wearing one), grey, blue, or red?
Who gets first credit?
When the MVP for the Super Bowl gets up to make his grand speech, who will be getting first credit? Will it be his teammates or God that gets first thanks? Maybe the fans or the city, family, the coach or even the owner perhaps. Maybe he doesn't thank anyone and is just there so he won't get fined.
Groundhogs day tie-in
Let's keep the party going, groundhogs day style, is Punxsutawney Phil going to see his shadow or not and who is going to win the Superbowl. Just find a combination of Phil seeing his shadow or not and who wins the big game for this simple and fun prop bet.
Market up or market down?
Is the Dow Jones going to be up or down on Monday? And if you're really daring, put some money in the market itself. Can't be any more risky than the other bets we've made today.
