Earlier today, Las Vegas released a number of prop bets for Super Bowl XLVIII. These are always fun to look at because some of them are just silly. And who doesn't love hilarious gambling*? *(Be wise). Here's a look at some of the bets that stood out most to me:
Will it snow during the game?
Yes +300 (3/1)
No -500 (1/5)
Starting it off with the most obvious one: the cold weather Super Bowl angle.
Will the power go out in the stadium during the game?
I'm sure the NFL would like to avoid a second straight Super Bowl where the lights went out during the game.
How many times will Peyton Manning say "Omaha" during the game?
Give me the over.
Will Michael Crabtree mention Richard Sherman in a tweet during the Super Bowl from kickoff until final whistle?
Yes +150 (3/2)
No -200 (1/2)
A sorry receiver like Crabtree has no business tweeting about the best cornerback in the game.
Will the announcers say the word "Marijuana" during the game?
Yes +550 (11/2)
No -900 (1/9)
The only two states (Colorado, Washington) where marijuana has been legalized for recreational use are sending teams to the Super Bowl. Commence, "Weed Bowl".
Will any member of the Red Hot Chili Peppers be shirtless during their performance
Yes EVEN (1/1)
No -140 (5/7)
I like pleasure spiked with pain, and music is my aeroplane.
What Color will the Gatorade (or liquid) be that is dumped on the Head Coach of the Winning Super Bowl Team?
Is lemon lime gatorade green or yellow?
If the Broncos win will Peyton Manning retire before game 1 of the 2014 Regular Season?
Yes +700 (7/1)
No -1500 (1/15)
No way, right?
Will Richard Sherman be interviewed on field after the game on the live FOX broadcast?
I don't see why not.
What will be higher?
Gold Medals by the USA in the 2014 Sochi Olympics +120 (6/5)
First Half Total Points by the Broncos -150 (2/3)
The cross-sports bets are where I just shake my head.
