Patriots, Eagles, and Prop Bets: Your Super Bowl Starts Now

Washington Commanders

This weekend marks the pinnacle of the 2017 NFL season with the playing of the 52nd Super Bowl in Minnesota. It feels like forever ago back on January 21st when the Conference Championships were decided, putting the wheels in motion for one of the better Super Bowl matchups in recent memory. Predictably the Patriots make yet another appearance at the show after rolling through the AFC playoff bracket, albeit with a few close calls. Meanwhile in the NFC, Nick Foles picked up the pieces after the Eagles starting QB Carson Wentz goes down, and Foles has people thinking twice about his potential as a starter, or Super Bowl champion for that matter.

While most of the action will be on the field, the game isn’t the only thing this Sunday to look forward to. Special prop betting options have become a staple of Super Bowl Sunday for years now, with the list of wagers increasing annually. Some sites offering up hundreds all on their own, check Betting sites for various prop bets on Super Bowl 52. While most of the public will be banking on the Patriots to come through as favorites, let’s take a gander at some other things worth betting on.

Pink’s national anthem performance is one of the primary focuses of many entertainment props on the menu this weekend. Length of the song is a popular option, with the over/under set at two minutes, favoring the over. This is for good reason, four of the last five performances have gone longer than 2 minutes because who wants to rush through their time to shine. How about predicting her hair color? Maybe you have in in with her stylist and can parlay that into a few extra greenbacks.

Interestingly Pink is only the 2nd favorite with white/blonde taking the lead on the prop odds board. Finally, one of the more interesting bets can be made on whether or not Pink says the word “Eagles” at any point before, during or after her rendition. Interesting why? Glad you asked. Pink, as it turns out, is a massive eagles fan and might want to flash her colors. BTW green hair pays out a hefty 5/1.

Anthem betting is perhaps secondly only to halftime betting when it comes to prop options. With Justin TImberlake’s much anticipated performance, there is much to predict here. Shoe color you ask? Oh we got that. White is favored with yellow bringing up the rear as the wild card with long odds. Might he wear a hat? Sunglasses perhaps? This is really starting to sound like a game of guess who, but with money involved. Predictably the most conversational of these options will be who joins JT on stage as a special guest? Favored choices include T.I. & Jay-Z, while longshots bring ‘NSYNC and Janet Jackson into the fold. It’s slightly surprising that Jackson is predicted to have no chance in hell of making a tongue in cheek appearance, so much for the NFL having a light side. It seems inevitable that JT will be covering a Prince song at some point but don’t bank on Purple Rain. Prince killed it so hard at Super Bowl XLI that even Timberlake wouldn’t stand a chance of pulling it off, hell it was even raining for god’s sake!

Be sure to check out your favorite betting resource for even more prop bets being offered up. With choices in the thousands, it would be hard to not find something worth dropping a dime on. Whatever you decide to wager on this Super Bowl Sunday it’s best to keep one important thing in mind. Buy three times the amount of food & alcohol you need for your Super Bowl party and be sure to invest in a good sturdy plunger.
