In terms of sports in North America, there simply is no event bigger than the Super Bowl. People who don’t ever think about playing a wager on the outcome of sports get involved on Super Bowl Sunday. The bookies are well aware of this, which is why they offer a huge variety of bets, many of which are aimed at those who don’t know a lot about football.
The place to go looking for these wagers in in the prop bets section, where you will find all kinds of wagers about such obscure details as the color of the Gatorade being dumped on the winning coach to wardrobe malfunctions during the halftime show. Fir the purposes of this piece, we are going to focus on the prop bets for the national anthem.
Super Bowl LIV National Anthem Prop Bets
National Anthem Performance Prop BetsThe national anthem in Super Bowl LIV will be performed by Demi Lovato, a singer who likes to do some fancy runs and notes while she sings. This leads us perfectly to a prop that focuses on the length of a single word. When she gets to the end of the anthem, how long will it take her to get out the word, “Brave?” The O/U on this one is set at 5 ½ seconds, so if you are a fan of Demi Lovato and her singing style, this might be one that you can cash in on.
There is also a lot of interest in what Lovato will be wearing when she takes the field to sing the national anthem at Super Bowl LIV. There are 6 different colors to choose from when wagering on the primary color of her outfit. Black seems to be the consensus pick, with the odds for that set at +125, but if you think she might go for a splash of color, you can wager on pink as the primary color at odds of +800.
You can also place a bet on what she will actually be wearing, such as shorts, dress, etc.
Speaking of color, you can also wager on what color of microphone she will use when belting out the national anthem. Black seems to be the obvious choice here at odds of -180, but you can also wager on any other color at odds of +140.
Prop Bets Related to the National Anthem in Super Bowl LIVWhile Demi Lovato will be front and center during the national anthem, there is also the potential for some distractions, the most obvious of which would be a player kneeling or raising a fist. Given that things seem to have died down in that area, I would be surprised if any players take that stance. If you believe otherwise, there is some serious money to be made given the current odds.
Another fun bet in the national anthem props section is whether a team will have a scoring drive faster than it took to sing the anthem. If you think the first score is going to come quickly, you can get that at odds of -300, which might not be a bad bet given how quickly the Chiefs can put points on the board.
