The Super Bowl brings out the greatest looney voters this side of the Atlantic. Because people will bet on anything–there was US$138.4 million in legal bets on last year’s game in the US alone–bookies are only too happy to oblige.
I’ve been trolling the betting sites looking for prop bets, specifically ones related to music.
Who will Trump tweet about first?
- The NFL, 3-4
- Any black player, 3-1
- Any white player, 30-1
- Justin Timberlake, 39-1
My pick: Any black player.
By the way, the over-under for the number of Donald Trump tweets for the game is 2.5
How long will it take for Pink to complete the national anthem?
- The over-under is 1 minute, 58 seconds.
My pick: There’s no way she’ll keep it under two minutes.
What colour will Pink’s hair be when she steps out on the field to sing?
- Blonde, 2-1
- Pink, 5-2
- Brown, 9-2
- Green, 10-1
My pick: Blonde
Will there be another wardrobe malfunction during Justin Timberlake’s halftime performance? (Some intimate body part MUST be exposed.)
- Yes, +1500
- No, -4000
My pick: No, but there might be an allusion to one or some kind of misdirection.
Speaking of which, will Janet Jackson make a surprise halftime appearance?
- Yes, +400
- No, -600
My pick: Jeezus, given the attendance and viewership the NFL has had this year, they would incredibly stupid NOT to have her show up.
