I’m very much not a fan of either team in this year’s big game, so at this point I’m looking for reasons to sit through the 10 hours of pregame, the four-hour game itself, and the endless postgame celebration and dissection.
And I think I’ve found it… prop bets.
I’m not much of a gambler, but if you want to have a reason to watch not only the game, but the other parts of the festivities as well, keep an eye on the vast offerings of prop bets from Vegas.
Here’s a few examples :
- Will any members of the Red Hot Chili Peppers be shirtless during their performance?
- How many times will Eli Manning be shown during the game?
- Will Wes Welker drop a pass during the game (my favorite)?
- What will be the result of the first coach’s challenge of the game?
And the list goes on and on and on.
So check out the entire list here, and maybe print them out for your Super Bowl party. And if you have a few bucks and happen to be in Vegas over the big game, maybe take a shot on “What will Bruno Mars be wearing on his head at the start of his halftime performance.” You get 5-to-1 odds that it’s a fur hat.
