On Sunday, February the 5th, all eyes of the sporting world will be focused on Houston, Texas. The Atlanta Falcons will tangle with one of the most storied franchises in all of professional sports, the New England Patriots. The 51st Super Bowl will be the biggest wagered sporting event of the year.
Of course, you can stay conventional and bet the winner with odds, wager against the point spread, or try to foretell the final point total, picking the final total points in the classic over/under. But, if you really want to add some flamboyant flair, plus a few good laughs, think about spreading some money around on the dozens of side wagers, always part of Super Bowl fun. Here are three “prop bets” that are part of Super Bowl wagering, but have nothing to actually do with football.
O’ Say, How Long Will Luke Sing?
This side wager is a seriously fun version of the over/under bet, except you guess whether the total time of the National Anthem is going to be more, or less than a set amount of time. It’s the first prop bet offered by Covers.com. How long will it take Luke Bryan to sing the National Anthem?
Heads or Tails?
One classic Super Bowl wager gets the fun betting underway with the flip of the coin. This is an easy side wager for any fan – football expert or not. You’re going to project the outcome of probably the simplest wager in the world, heads or tails.
Halftime Spectacular Speculation
Sticking with a theme that really has nothing to do with football, you can speculate about interesting aspects of Lady Gaga’s Super Bowl halftime spectacular. Her fans may want to bet on which song she’ll perform first, or even how long her set will last. To really delve deep into the halftime angle, you can bet on how many wardrobe changes the famed female diva will attempt.
Covers.com is a perfect choice for all your 2017 Super Bowl wagers, whether you want to put down a serious wager on the big game, or just add a few entertainingly enjoyable side bets. You can pick the winner, or pick your favorite Gaga song, or whether the coin flip will land on heads, or maybe tails.
