Odd Bets You Can Make For Sunday’s Football Game
Betting on who will win between New England and Atlanta has apparently become boring to the chronic gambler. Did you know you could bet on these strange non-football things?
Bovada Sportsbook in Las Vegas is one of many sports books that offer more than the 'who is going to win' bet. I found some of the more 'odd' non-football bets you could make.
You can bet on how long it will take Luke Bryan to sing the national anthem. Bovada's over/under is 2 minutes 9 seconds. I'll take under on this one.
Will Luke Bryan be wearing a hat when he appears on screen before singing the national anthem? Their odds are Yes: 7/5 and No: 5/9. I'm selecting No as my one.
How about placing a bet on Luke Bryan forgetting or omitting a word from the national anthem? Any takers at Yes with 4/1 odds or No at 1/7? I'm saying No. I have a little more faith in Luke than that.
Because we can't seem to get away from politics these days, there is even a bet on how many times that 'Trump' will be said on TV during the broadcast. The over/under is 1.5 times. Ugh, I'll pass on this one.
How about bets on Tom Brady's gal pal Gisele Bundchen being shown on TV during the broadcast (Over 1½: 11/10 ... Under 1½: 2/3), or will “Houston we have a problem” be said on TV during the live broadcast (Yes: 5/2 ... No: 1/4).
What about the color hair Lady Gaga will dawn when she takes the stage for the halftime show (Blonde: 1/4, Any other color: 5/2). I will have no clue, as I plan to hit the buffet line for a second time. Okay maybe for the third or fourth time by halftime.
