Bet on the biggest Super Bowl for gambling in recent memory: The American Gaming Association predicts Americans will wager a combined $23.1 billion on the Big Game this year, up from $16 billion year-over-year. Who will reign supreme – Watt or Kelce? The Super Bowl offers unique betting experiences, with wagers on anything from the color of Gatorade baths to the chance of a postgame proposal. Here are some of the wildest and weirdest bets you can place on Super Bowl Sunday.
Sam Darnold to Win Super Bowl MVP: +20000 (DraftKings)
49ers backup Sam Darnold is valued at the same level or better than legitimate defensive stars, despite the unlikelihood of him winning MVP.
Marquez Valdes-Scantling Over 19.5 Receiving Yards: -120 (DK)
You’re pretty much betting on MVS to make a catch, given the Chiefs passing offense’s reliance on a few key players.
Either Kicker Hits the Uprights/Crossbar on a Missed Field Goal/Extra Point at +400 (via The Athletic)
This bet asks kickers to ring it off the goalposts, making one of the funniest sounds in sports.
Drake Wears Kansas City Chiefs Merch at -170 (via The Athletic)
The Drake Curse is notorious, and it would be amusing to see him don the jersey of the winningest, most visible team in American professional sports.
Reba McEntire National Anthem Length Under 90.5 seconds: -128 (FD)
Vegas expects Reba to breeze through the National Anthem, but the under seems like a fool’s bet given historical averages.
The Usher Halftime Appearance Props (Covers)
As the halftime show performer, Usher has entered the betting conversation fairly predictably. His 2004 club hit “Yeah!” is currently listed at -100000 on Betano.
The Taylor Swift Props (DK)
Some of the bets are so ludicrous that they bear pointing out. For example, “Karma: Travis Kelce 0 Receptions & SF to Win at +3000” or “Wildest Dreams: Travis Kelce to Score the First and Last TD at +2500.”
