Strange Big Game Bets For Non-Football Fans
It's the biggest television of the event of the year. World wide, fans will be tuning in to this weekend's Super Bowl between San Francisco and Baltimore. In Vegas, millions of dollars will be riding on the outcome of this match up -and plenty more on things that have nothing to do with who wins or loses the game. Here are some of the more peculiar bets that are available.
You can bet on how long it will take Alicia Keys to sing the national anthem -over/under 2 minutes and 15 seconds. You can even bet on whether or not she will be booed, and on whether or not she messes up the lyrics.
On the subject of entertainers, you can bet on whether or not JayZ will join his wife Beyonce on stage during the half time show, and you can bet on whether Beyonce's hair is curly or straight.
Of course, one of the big topics of conversation surrounding the game is the fact that the opposing coaches, John Harbaugh and Jim Harbaugh are brothers. You can bet on how many times "Harbaugh" is said during the broadcast, how long the post-game hand shake/hug between the brothers will last, and how many times their father, Jack Harbaugh, will be shown during the game.
You can even bet on what color the Gatorade will be that's poured over the winning coach at the end of the game.
Believe it or not there are some bets available about the game itself. Will Alex Smith take a snap from center? Will the team with the most penalty yards win the game? What will the jersey number be of the player who scores the first touchdown?
So if you are the gambling type but you don't know anything at all about football, it's not a problem. You can still get a piece of the Vegas action this weekend.
