Super Bowl Sunday is almost here and to a degenerate gambler, this is Christmas! The Super Bowl and gambling go hand in hand while Bovada.lv is the place to go for the greatest action!
Sure you can bet on the game or maybe take a few player bets, but how BORING is that?
I gamble on games all year long and this is a betting mans day for fun! I’m talking about the prop bets that Bovada.lv just released!
Now these bets don’t necessarily take any skill but this day only comes once a year and is a lot of fun!
What Are Prop Bets?
If you are unfamiliar with what prop bets are, they are nothing more than stupid bets that make every aspect of the Super Bowl fun and have nothing to do with the actually game itself.
Think of it like this, how many times have you been to a Super Bowl Party and there are a few people there that don’t care about the game?
Instead they are there for the drinks and food and good company. These bets even intrigue those people and some of the bets are so ridiculous that you take them just to start a conversation with people.
Sure you can go up to a complete stranger and tell them you like the Patriots or how you think they cheated. But that is almost like talking about the weather on the elevator at a Super Bowl Party.
Now go up to a stranger and tell them how you really need Bill Belichick to smile on camera at some point of the game because you have $100 bucks riding on it.
I bet you will have quite an interesting conversation after that introduction!
Lock of the Super Bowl Bets
So, with that being said, I’m going to break down a few of my favorite bets and give you my LOCK OF THE SUPERBOWL!
Now if you think I’m joking about the Belichick smiling on camera bet, you are wrong!
That is one of the many bets you can make on Bovada.lv this Super Bowl and the odds are +150 if he does and -200 that he doesn’t (meaning if you bet $10 and he does smile you win $15 and you need to bet $20 to win $10 that he doesn’t smile).
A bet that I have won three years in a row is the length of the National Anthem.
First, who the hell is Idina Menzel?
I’m going to have to do some research on this particular singer and learn their style. The over is usually a lock but I don’t recall the line being set at 2 minutes and one second.
If I recall correctly the line is usually about 1 minute 42 seconds but Bovada.lv is wising up to the money they have lost on the over and extended the time frame.
Unfortunately I always bet this and will probably have to take the under this year.
The Hoodie Color Pick!
This next bet may require some research to see if a pattern can be detected.
Is there any rhyme or reason to the color of Belichick’s hoodie color?
I’m not sure if he wears a blue one when the team is wearing blue, or maybe he just picks his hoodie the same way I pick my girlfriends Valentine’s Day card. Just looks for three seconds and grabs the first one he sees.
Regardless, grey is the heavy favorite at 1/2 and red is the dark horse paying 7.5/1.
Sleeves or No Sleeves?
That’s another bet so if you are betting on Belichick’s hoodie, you might as well go all out.
No sleeves the big favorite there.
The Half Time Bets!
Now to the half time show, how many times will Katy Perry be mentioned before she performs?
The line is set at 2 and the over is slightly favored but not by much.
This bet feels like a trap in my opinion.
Don’t let Bovada.lv fool you because her name has to be mentioned once the game starts to the end of the first half.
Many people know it will come up multiple times before the game starts, but that doesn’t count!
When the game actually starts, I’m going to say under here.
I think it will come up 100 times right after the whistle blows taking us to halftime, but not sure it will be mentioned during the game.
Skirt/Dress or Pants/Shorts Bet!
You get 2 to 1 if she comes out in pants or shorts, but if I know my Katy, there’s no chance of that happening.
The bad part is I don’t know Katy Perry at all.
I assume every pop song sung by a girl is Katy Perry (you can bet on what song she will sing first as well).
Gisele Super Bowl Bets!
So over/under how many times she will be shown on camera during the game is at 1.5 times.
I have to think that she will be shown at least twice right?
Think about the last Super Bowl Brady was in, she made all sorts of headlines with her stupid “he can’t throw and catch the ball at the same time” or whatever she said.
Then you need to throw in the fact that she is a hot super model (or is it super hot model, I never get it right) and that people want to see her.
She makes a living being seen on camera and I think some producer somewhere is going make sure she’s seen on the biggest stage so I’m riding the over here!
Try It Out For Yourself For Super Bowl Fun!
There are so many bets that I highly encourage you to go to Bovada.lv and get in on some of this action.
Now I predicted a for sure winner and here it is!
There is absolutely no chance in hell Marshawn Lynch will grab his crotch if he scores a touchdown.
First, I’m not sure if he will score a touchdown to have the opportunity to grab his junk. Second, he’d be in deep trouble if he did and he knows it.
He’s weird, not stupid.
Sure it’s not the greatest odds and you have to bet 6 dollars to win 1, but you can’t go broke taking a profit!
Again, I just scratched the surface on the prop bets available and Bovada.lv will add more as the week goes on so make sure to keep checking them out!
Even if you don’t gamble, it’s really just for entertainment and you’d be surprised how pumped you find yourself being that the Gatorade dumped on the winning coach was yellow because you have $5 bucks on it!
