The answer to the question no one is asking about Super Bowl is yes.
As in, yes, you can bet on whether Lenny Kravitz will expose his junk to the world during his halftime performance.
The Super Bowl brings out the degenerate gambler in many of us. Last year, fans wagered $119 million on the big game. And, as in past years, yes, you can lay down your hard-earned money on some truly wacky stuff this Sunday.
We’re not talking about betting on the number of completions Tom Brady has, whether Julian Edelman will have a rushing attempt, the coin toss or the length of the national anthem. Those prop bets are rather pedestrian nowadays, when you can bet your paycheck on the color of Katy Perry’s hair. What’s more American than that?
Here’s some of the most absurd bets out there, via Sportsbook Review and Bovada, two online gambling websites:
-How many times will the announcers mention any form of the word deflate between the singing of the national anthem and the end of the game?
-How many times will Rob Gronkowski spike the ball?
-Will Tom Brady be caught swearing on camera?
-What predominant color necktie will Al Michaels wear?
-Will Katy Perry and Lenny Kravitz kiss on the lips?
-Will Bill Belichick be caught smiling on camera during the game?
-Will Marshawn Lynch grab his crotch after scoring a touchdown?
-Will Idina Menzel forget or omit at least one word of the official national anthem?
-What will be higher on games played Feb. 1st, Alex Ovechkin’s shots on goal or Doug Baldwin’s receptions?
-What color will Bill Belichick’s hoodie be?
-You can place a parlay bet where you predict both the winner of the game and whether Punxsutawney Phil will see his shadow.
-How many times will Gisele Bundchen be shown on TV during the game?
-What color will the Gatorade (or liquid) be that is dumped on the head coach of the winning Super Bowl team?
-What will happen with the Dow Jones the day after the Super Bowl?
