The most ridiculous Super Bowl bets you can make this year

Jan 27 2020, 6:17 pm

There’s no shortage of weird and whacky bets available to make on this year’s Super Bowl.

Taking place Sunday, February 2, Super Bowl LIV features the San Francisco 49ers and Kansas City Chiefs at Hard Rock Stadium in Miami.

The Super Bowl is always a big money event, with about 100 million people tuning in south of the border and companies willing to spend $5 million for a 30-second US television ad.

Over $150 million will be placed on bets in Nevada, with 50% of that money expected to be spent on proposition betting.

Sure, you can bet on all the usual things, like which team is going to win and who will be named MVP. But that’s boring.

You can spice things up by betting on just about anything with Super Bowl prop bets, and unlike most games, wagering is not confined to the field of play.

What colour Gatorade will the winning team douse their coach with? You can bet on that. Will the MVP thank God in the post-game interview? That’s another favourite.

Will a fan run onto the field, and if so, who will tackle him/her first?

How fast will Demi Lovato sing the national anthem? Will Jennifer Lopez show butt cleavage?

These are all real, by the way.

Here’s a rundown of the most hilarious Super Bowl bets you can make, with odds listed in parentheses.

You can bet on the coin toss

Let’s start with the coin toss. You can bet heads (-105) or tails (-105). Or, if you prefer, you can bet if the Chiefs or 49ers will win it.

…and the national anthem
