Super Bowl betting revisited

The Super Bowl kicks off in about half an hour, and once again millions will place bets on who wins the game, the spread, as well as who will win the opening coin flip.  As I posted last year, the NFC has won the coin toss for 14 years in a row, and some people think this means they should be betting on the AFC to win the coin toss.  However, as we said last year, the coin toss had a 50-50 probability, historically the coin has come up heads 24 times, and tails 21.  Really, there shouldn’t be much money to be made on betting on the coin toss.

Also found this article, which had some wacky additional Super Bowl bets one can make:

  • Will the National Anthem be Over or Under 1 minute, 34 seconds?
  • What will Kelly Clarkson wear to sing the National Anthem – Colts Jersey (7/1), Giants Jersey (15/1), Patriots Jersey (15/1), NFL shirt (2/1) or Anything else (1/3)?
  • Will Kelly Clarkson forget or omit at least 1 word of the official US National Anthem – Yes (2.5/1)?
  • What color will Madonna’s hair be when she begins the Super Bowl Halftime show – Blonde (1/4), Any other color (2.5/1)?
  • Will Madonna be wearing fishnet stockings at any point during the Halftime show – Yes (1/1), No (1/1)?
  • What will Madonna be using to start the Super Bowl Halftime show – Headset (1/3), Handheld Microphone (2/1)?
  • How many times will David Tyree’s 2008 Super Bowl catch be shown on TV during the game – More Than 1.5 or Less Than 1.5?
  • If Tom Brady’s son is shown on TV during the game, will he be wearing a Tom Brady jersey – Yes (1/2), No (1/1)?
  • What color will the Gatorade (or liquid) be that is dumped on the head coach of the winning Super Bowl Team – Clear/Water (3/2), Orange (5/2), Yellow (5/2), Red (13/2), Green (15/2), Blue (10/1)?
  • Who will the Super Bowl MVP of the game thank first – Teammates (5/4), Coach (12/1), Family (15/2), God (4/1), Owner (5/1) or Does Not Thank Anyone (5/2)?
  • Will Kelly Clarkson’s bare belly be showing when she sings the National Anthem – Yes (3/1)?
  • How many times will Giselle Bundchen be shown on TV during the game – More than .5 (1/2) or Less Than .5 (1.2/1)?

Enjoy the game!
